Join #ThePopTartGang




Hi Everyone,

If you are a huge fan of the number 1 ship of the apocalypse then you are probably also a fan of our Caryl Captain.....RAYON!





He recently did a video about a fan fiction story called The PopTart Gang, that was written specifically for him and his fans by a talented fan fiction writer named Kaitlynn. You can check out the video below.....




For chapter 2 of The PopTart Gang, Kaitlynn is wanting to include anyone that is interested in having their name added to this fun saga! All you need to do is send her an e-mail: kdanielle123@gmail.com and tell her the name you want her to use, and before you know it you could be baking cookies with Carol or slaying walkers with Daryl....or even better having a Pop-Tart party with Rayon!


Until next time....CARYL ON!
Love & Hugs,

TWD Couples - "Perfect"




Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well and looking forward to the Caryl reunion that we have been promised for episode 8x11 this Sunday on TWD!





I thought to celebrate such a joyous occasion I would make a video tribute to all of my favorite love stories on TWD. Don't get me wrong, Caryl is definitely the ULTIMATE LOVE STORY but for the song that I chose I thought it might be fun to invite Richonne and Glaggie to this LOVE PARTY!




I just can't wait to see our King and Queen together again and hopefully lean on each other for emotional support as they grieve for Carl. It would be really sweet if Carl wrote both of them a letter and I would love to see them read it together.

WALKER WONDERLAND - Episode 1





Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a beautiful holiday season and will have a blessed 2018. 💖

I am excited about this new year as I have taken a leap of faith by starting my own podcast series called, "Walker Wonderland". I have wanted to do this for awhile but I would always let my nerves get in the way, until I finally decided that there is no better time to try something new than at the start of a new year!




So if you enjoy my TWD posts here on my blog than please give my podcast a listen. I feature 3 fun segments and talk all things The Walking Dead.....(and Carol of course). 😍






Also don't forget to subscribe to my channel if you liked what you heard! I will post a new episode of "Walker Wonderland" on Sunday, Feb. 4th. 


Love & Hugs,

TWD - Favorite Moments From 8x07 & 8x08







Hi Everyone!

I am recaping both 8x07 and 8x08 in this post since I was unable to finish my 8x07 recap a couple of weeks ago due to losing power in the snow storm. 

I am very much still spinning from the mid-season finale as I love the Grimes family and the special relationship that Carl and Michonne share. I will actually probably miss their scenes together even more than the ones between Rick and Carl. Things just feel so dark right now!





Ok....on with the recaps...........




In 8x07 I really loved this moment between Michonne and Daryl as it has been awhile since these two characters have had a scene all to themselves. It was so sincere when Michonne expressed why she could not go through with the plan and I thought Daryl's reaction was really understanding when he told her that she shouldn't have to do it. I just really like the friendship that they share and I would love to have a Richonne and Caryl double date at some point in the future!
#IKnowItWillNeverHappenButICanDream




I thought this moment between Rick and Jadis has been LONG overdue!!! I have never bought the idea that a community of dumpster divers are stronger than Rick and our group. I am honestly still trying to see the point of these characters as they just seem like a bunch of pointless freaks but maybe they will surprise us and do something worthy in the next half of the season.
#TakeOutTheTrash




Now let's talk about 8x08 and that glorious moment when our Queen Machine saved the day once again! Thanks to Carol's perfect timing Rick was no longer stranded on the battlefield. 
By the way.....I can't believe this is the first time Rick and Carol have shared a scene together since season 6!!! That is ridiculous to me as these two characters go all the way back to the beginning and have such a strong history. Speaking of their history, I had the thought that since Rick put Sofia down....maybe Carol should be the one to put Carl down? Even though this scenario is really hard for me to fathom, I think it would be both a moving and honorable way to come full circle.
#EverythingIsPain 




This precious scene between Judith and Michonne is probably one of my favorite of the whole season so far. I had actually hoped for more moments like this when the season began. Watching Michonne "mother" Judith and Carl is one of the things I love most about the show. Her bond with these kids is so special and beautiful, and I can't stand to think about her having to now lose another son!
#WHY




I was so relived when Ezekiel decided to take Carol's advice and "play the part" of heroic King once again. He jumped into action and got the Kingdomers to safety before surrendering himself to the Saviors. What I loved most about this scene was what he told Carol as he was shutting the gates, "Save them like you saved me". I think as fans we can all relate to those words as Carol's story has inspired and saved so many of us at some point in our lives. ❤
#ThankYouMelissaMcBeautiful




I am thoroughly enjoying Maggie's journey this season as she fully owns her leadership at the Hilltop. Trusting her instincts and taking control of the situations she is dealt has been an absolute joy to watch. I loved her coffin warning to the Saviors that she will kill the remaining 38 of them if they don't stop playing games! What moves me the most about Maggie is thinking about all that she has lost and been through and yet continues to rise up to be a pillar of strength for those around her. It is such a beautiful thing for her character and I look forward to more of it in the next half of the season.
#TeamRhee 




Lastly, I feel kind of scarred for life from the expression on Rick and Michonne's faces as they realized what had happened to Carl. The only thing that made this scene half way bearable was the shot of Daryl preciously holding Judith knowing how her little life was about to change forever without her big brother by her side. I always thought that Carl would be the last man standing in the end so I feel very blindsided by this twist! I have to also say that I'll be royally disappointed if Carol doesn't get to be apart of his death and say her goodbyes since he and Sofia were such close friends.
#TearsForYears





I can't believe we are already on hiatus again but I have enjoyed recapping my favorite moments each week and I also greatly appreciate all of you that read my CRAZY thoughts every week!!! 😜




Until next time I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Remember to JSS 💔

TWD - Favorite Moments From 8x05 & 8x06







Hi Everyone!

I hope you all are doing well. I got busy with Thanksgiving last week so I am doing both 8x05 and 8x06 in this weeks post. 

So here we go.......




I have to admit that 8x05 fell a little flat for me although I did love the look on Daryl's face when he learned that Carol was alive and well after she annihilated a bunch of Saviors. You could pretty much feel the rush of relief that swept over him as he thought to himself, "that's my girl"!
#CarylOnBaby




I really loved the opening for 8x06 when everyone is reading their letters. I think it is wonderful that the Kingdom, Hilltop and Alexandria are all keeping up with what's going on with each camp so that everyone stays on the same page. This scene really seemed to unite the groups as one and gave a sense of family that I have not felt from them in awhile.
#BetterTogether




I am loving the relationship that is forming between Carol and Henry. I know that it is probably risky for Carol to get close to another child after losing so many in the past, but I actually think this could be a healing experience for her. There is a void that each child left in Carol's heart and Henry also has a void from losing the best parent figure he had in his brother, Benjamin. I'm not necessarily saying that I want Carol to officially become his mom as I think Ezekiel has pretty much adopted him at this point but I do love the idea of her becoming this cool aunt that teaches him how to use a gun, kill Walkers and bake cookies. Maybe Uncle Daryl could even show him how to hunt squirrels and ride motorcycles! 
#LuckyKid




I know I have said it before but let me just say it again that I could watch Maggie treat Gregory like a bratty child all day! His pig pen punishment has been LONG overdue and it just made me feel incredibly proud of Maggie for not only standing up for herself but for all of Hilltop as well! 
#LeaderGoals




I literally shouted for joy when Daryl hopped out of the truck to save the day! There really is not much to say about this AWESOME scene other than how bad I wish Carol had been there to see it. 😍
#PutARingOnIt




Lastly, I don't even know where to begin with this beautifully heart felt scene between Carol and Ezekiel. The tragic loss of Shiva and the many Kingdomers is clearly the worst thing that has happened to Ezekiel since the apocalypse started, so he has not quite learned how to handle grief while still needing to fight for survival. However Carol could literally write a book on that very subject. I loved when she told him how playing a part has gotten her this far and that you just have to pretend everything is going to be fine even if you don't feel like it. These lessons really highlight why Carol is my favorite character. Her speech to Ezekiel spoke to me in a personal way and inspires me to keep fighting as well!

#GiveThemAllTheAwads


I thoroughly enjoyed 8x06 so much and am hoping that the rest of the season will be more like this episode in the fact that it pretty much had everyone in it.



I will be back with a new recap next week so until then I hope everyone has an awesome week and knows how much you are loved and appreciated!

Big Hugs,

TWD - Favorite Moments From 8x04







Hi Everyone!

I really do not even know where to begin with this weeks episode since the entire thing was my FAVORITE! I did my best to choose the moments that really inspired and moved me the most so let's get to it.....




The video above pretty much made itself as I was so overcome with emotions after 8x04 that I literally poured everything that it made me feel about this season into it. The level of strength that Carol and Daryl are using to win this war is a constant reminder of everything that they have had to overcome to lead them to this place of victory. Carol's journey will forever touch me the most just because it really speaks to me in a personal way. I can very much relate to who her character was in the early seasons and to see the growth of who she is now inspires me to keep fighting in my own life. I think what moves me the most about her story is that it is such a beautiful example of what can happen when you choose to not give up!






I could honestly watch our precious Queen Machine SLAY all day!!! She is literally over qualified for these stupid Saviors. I mean she single handedly took out a whole community at Terminus, so she basically ate these losers for breakfast! At this point I am begging for a scene just between Carol and Negan but I know that can't happen for awhile since she would bury his butt the moment she laid eyes on him. 
#BoyBye





I can't even begin to express how completely overcome with endless emotions I am with the look on Carol's face when she hears Daryl in the distance! That look of pure genuine joy that cannot be contained even in the midst of the worst of times. It's the first REAL smile I have seen on her beautiful face in awhile and she deserved every second of that sweet moment. I can never say enough how much the special bond that these two characters share move me, it's on a level that cannot really be put into words.
#HoldMe





Lastly I feel totally crushed over Shiva's sacrifice! I am a huge animal lover and she quickly became one of my very favorite characters. I can completely relate to the love that Ezekiel had for her and the pain of watching her die as I also recently lost a very special fur baby that meant the world to me. The level of brokenness that Ezekiel experienced was really hard to watch and I hope that with the help of the people that he still has left in his life he'll be able to overcome this.
#PainForDays




Overall this was by far my favorite episode of the season and also probably in my top 5 favorite episodes EVER!!!

I will be back next week with a recap of 8x05 so until then I hope you all have a fantastic week and know that you are loved and appreciated!

Huge Hugs,

TWD - Favorite Moments From 8x03





Hi Everyone!

I thought this weeks episode was incredible and I cannot wait to break my favorite moments down so let's dive in......






WOWS.....Can we talk about the opening!!! I loved when Carol pointed out that even though the Saviors have a lot of numbers, they can't compete with the strategic mind games of the Queen Machine! Thanks to Carol the Kingdom has skill and strategy over mindless numbers which was best displayed when she blew their whistling faces off from the bushes!!! 
#YesPlease




My next favorite moment came when Daryl shut moaning Morales' mouth with a little surprise from behind. In my opinion there is simply not enough time for monotonous conversation anymore. Morales had the chance to do the right thing and help his old friends but instead he did not hesitate in choosing where his loyalty lies. Basically if you're not with us then you're against us and considering all the torture that the Saviors put Daryl through, it's not really surprising that he is not putting up with ANY of them!!!




 
I think I could watch Maggie yell at big baby Gregory all day. I love that she treats him like the bratty child he is! At first I was disappointed that she let him back in to the Hilltop but then when she told Enid that he was not worth killing yet......that *YET* gives me hope that Maggie at least has plans to finish him off in the future. I just wish she would take care of her rat problem now before he eats anyone else's pancakes!





Lastly, the look of relief on Ezekiel's face when he learned that not one of his people had perished in their attack on the Saviors, was quickly brought back to reality when Carol reminded them they still needed to scan the perimeter. Queen Carol knows better than to celebrate too soon and moments later proved exactly why! 😲




I really loved this episode a lot but I feel extremely unprepared for the next one! I'm sure our precious Queen Machine is going to be fine and will finally get to shine like the dazzling star that she is.......
but even with all that said I'm still a little nervous just because I LOVE CAROL SO MUCH!!!


   

I will be back next week with my favorite moments from 8x04 so until then I hope you all have a beautiful week!

Love & Hugs,
-GG
