Yep yep yep. I know, I'm just a tad late with this. But I thought, what the heck, why not watch the episode that started it all and dissect the heck out of it? There were some pretty interesting things that I missed when I watched the episode the first 20 times, so I decided to pay closer attention to certain things. Plus, it was funny to see baby-faced Rick, before he became bloody-face Rick.
There's some land for sale right by an intersection of two main highways if you're interested! 21.5 acres to be exact!
This intersection, Cascade Palmetto Highway and Highway 92, is a real intersection, with a real Texaco!
Someone had gotten pretty good at knife throwing...too bad it looks like everyone at that little Texaco settlement died a horrible death.
If you Google the phone number 942-2371, you actually get Douglasville Towing, out of Georgia! Either the best ad placement ever, or yeah, something-
Did anyone ever figure out why Summer had an X on her forehead? Rick sure missed it when he shot her...
When Rick and Shane get the call to stop the bad guys and tear out of wherever they are, what on earth are these two birds eating??? I think it's either a cat or an Ewok.
Here's a shot of said bad guys car. The Judge, eh? Maybe a nod to the future Ricktatorship?
The time the world stopped (or when the power to the hospital clocks stopped anyway) was 2:17.
1 John 2:17 reads “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” Acts 2:17 says “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” But probably the best one is James 2:17, “Faith without works is dead.” Sound familiar? Ohhhh yeah...No Way Out, church...neat! That episode quoted James 2:26, but still, the Bible likes to repeat itself from time to time.
Donate blood! The life you save could be your own! Or, you know, your kid's, after he got shot in the stomach while looking at a friggin deer.
The biblical and heaven/hell references had begun in the first episode, no matter how small they were. Does it look like Rick is walking toward the light here?
I'm getting pretty tired of watching and pausing and rewinding, so I'll leave you with this one final thang. Here's where Rick got shot-
And here's where the wound is in Morgan's House of Horrors-
Do the two wounds line up to you? I smell something rank, and it isn't a stinky bullet wound. Sorry, I'll still be a Rick's Just Dreaming or Rick's in Hell believer until the day the series ends :)
