What About Bob? – in this episode of The Walking Dead

As the fourth season of The Walking Dead begins to wind down, the show decided to treat the audience to a bit of Bob’s history. Not only do we discover what he went through before he hooked up with Rick & Co., but we also get a look at how he has made himself a part of the group since. Most notably through his relationships with Maggie and Sasha. “Alone” may be the title of episode 413, but it’s also a reference to how Bob Stookey felt before he found new people to build a community with. Meanwhile, Daryl and Beth continue the search for supplies and shelter when their partnership they’ve built since they fled the prison gets torn apart. This week’s episode wasn’t zombilicious as one might expect from a show named The Walking Dead (except for that gnarly funeral home scene), but that’s not really what this show is about. It’s about people, and how they survive when all hope seems lost. Our folks have been separated from each other for weeks and hope is the only thing that has kept them going. So without further adieu, let’s shamble along and discuss “Alone.”

This week we learned how he survived alone until our gang picked him up. All season Bob has appeared to be detrimental to the group. His addiction led him into a situation that caused Beth’s boyfriend to get killed. Another time he was so busy trying to get high that he couldn’t clearly focus on the task at hand to get medicine for everyone back at the prison who had the new strain of the flu. Now we know why. When he first met our people, Daryl asked Bob, “How many people have you killed?” Bob’s reply? “One.” Unlike our folks, Bob wasn’t a skilled fighter. All that’s changed. (More…)
