The Grimes family is together again but walkers are a real threat. Did everyone make it out of season 1 episode 4 of The Walking Dead titled “Vatos” alive?
Ah, the good feeling. The Grimes family is alive and together and there is a new group full of interesting survivors. Things are feeling positive through the first three episodes of AMC”s The Walking Dead.
Season 1 episode 4 of the hit zombie survival drama series is called “Vatos” and aired on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2010. It is called that because it is used to refer to a “homeboy” in Spanish. And there are some new faces added to the mix during this episode.
With the group looking for Merle and Rick wanting his duffel bag of weapons from the police station, the idea of property, ownership, and protection are all pushed to the limit in this installment of the series.
Considering the undead, human threats, and everything else going on in the world on The Walking Dead, surviving a single episode can be tough. Let’s take a look at the losses from episode 104:
- Ed Peletier
- Amy Harrison
- Other survivors at the Atlanta RV group
To say Ed isn’t a fan favorite is a bit of an understatement. His role in the Peletier family was one of abuse, both verbal and physical. Seeing him bit by a walker during an undead invasion of the RV camp likely didn’t make anyone cry, but seeing Carol be the one to make sure he didn’t reanimate was both rewarding and cathartic.
Ed wasn’t the only person of note to not make it through the zombie attack. Amy, the sister of Andrea, was also bitten by a walker. To make it even worse, it was Amy’s birthday when she was bitten and Andrea had just gotten her a nice mermaid necklace as a gift. When Andrea shot Amy in the head while in her arms, that drew some emotion.
Some other unnamed survivors from the camp died during the chaos. Their deaths helped to build to the bigger deaths, particularly Amy’s.
What did you think of losing Ed, Amy, and some other survivors during this episode of The Walking Dead? And what other kinds of losses do you think season 1 episode 4 had? Let us know your opinion in the comments!
