And the group is in Alexandria! Where they meet the benevolent and famous… DEANNA MONROE?! Wait a sec. Let’s compare these two, starting with the biggest change (or is it)?
So yes, Douglas Monroe has become Deanna Monroe (we meet Douglas in Volume 12: Life Among Them). Other than that, so far they are VERY similar. They’re both welcoming, they both understand hard decisions, they both want to protect their community, and they both think that Rick is the man to do it. Will they stay similar as we move further down this road? Maybe, maybe not. I don’t think Deanna is going to hit on Sasha or Carol though…
Rick is interviewed in the comic as well, albeit not on video. Douglas tells a very… interesting story about a murderous father that did not make it to the small screen, but Deanna is still pretty compelling.
Rick reveals his former occupation in both cases but it’s only in the comic that Douglas tells him he wants him to be sheriff right away. In the show Deanna waits a bit before unveiling her plans for Rick (and Michonne).
RICK CLEANS UP
Man, how good would that shower feel? In the show, Jessie shows up to cut Rick’s hair but in the comic it’s Olivia, who also handles the rations and weapons (we see her in the show—not sure if they say her name—when the group drops off their weapons). In the comic, Jessie shows up a little bit later.
Carl may be younger than his show counterpart but he still has the same concern: life in Alexandria has made people weak.
And here he is all decked out. We haven’t got a great shot of him patrolling the streets in the show yet, but here ya go!
PLEASE CHECK OUR RECAP AND DISCUSSION FOR THIS EPISODE:
Yes!! Loving it!! Woot Woot!! P.S. Noah’s a bitch! You throw down if your people are fighting… you don’t stand with the female and watch!!
I don’t understand why they made Noah a supply runner in the first place? This job has “runner” in it, for god’s sake!
Isn’t “Jessie” played by Alexandra Breckenridge? I read that she was going to play a mother called Samantha, so I guessed it would be the show counterpart for Jessie.
Samantha was just a casting name. Her name is still Jessie in the show.
Even though some people think they shouldn’t have these gender swaps, I welcome them. It spices up the show and makes the show’s cast diverse and similar to the real world.
I was excited to see Douglas. So far, not to impressed, but I’m waiting to pass further judgement on Deanna.
I think she has the chance to be able to bring a more civilized perspective on the world. One that is looking for order and for community more than anything else.
I don’t really agree. It’s not that the show or comics are dominated by males imho. Besides, have you read the comics? Douglas Monroe isn’t a very nice person in the comics. If Deanna follows his lead, she’ll be nothing to admire.
Douglas was a dick but he wasn’t anything like Gregory. He had good intentions. Besides, she won’t last long and then we will have Rick in full control!
I was so excited to see him in the uniform last night! I hope they keep the brawl with Jessie’s husband in the show. Judging from last night they are keeping his character an asshole.
Yup, i think they’re gonna merge Andrea’s role in the comics into her, except for the sniper part. All i’m really missing is a Sophia. She has such a beautiful growing up and coming of age dynamic with Carl. No way to replace what they’ve been through, Enid just won’t be able to fill her shoes. What happens when Sophia is gonna get jealous of the stuff that happened in the latest comic?
Wow, you guys left alot out this week!
Douglas’s wife’s was Regina, Deanna says her husband “Reg” was and Engineer who designed the walls.
Deanna’s son Nicholas is the same as Douglas’s son Nicholas. They all crash in the same house the first couple of nights as a safety precaution. Rick even says something about them trying to divide them up.
Handing over the weapons to Olivia (who looks just like Olivia from the comics!)
Rick has a panic attack the same way he does when he can’t find Carl, who is playing with some kids.
And finally, the ending was straight from the comic! When Rick says the same line about taking over, should things not work out.
There was a lot straight out of the comics in this episode this would be one hell of a long post if they were to include everything, I think this might have been the most true to the comics episode yet
I’d say it is pretty close along with 4×09 “After” where almost every scene was an adaptation from a specific panel in issues 49 and 50.
I love it. The more writers for the show that want to put their stamp on the storyline, the worse it gets. I say fire’em all and just film the comic books from now on 🙂
In the comics, Douglas and Regina’s son is Spencer Monroe. In the show, Deanna’s son is Aiden. Not sure why they changed it up again, but oh well. Nicholas is a different character entirely. In the comics he is known for being Mikey’s father, and being the leader of that brief attempt at a revolt. Otherwise, great comparisons.
He isn’t mikes son…
Hahaha i was just gonna say something about that….great job as always though! Super deadly and always cool
^ this was meant for francisco, i must not have hit the reply button hahaha
Thanks for including these! I knew them, but some people may have missed it
Douglas and reginas son was Spencer in the comic. Substituted for aiden in the show. Nicholas is just a pussy foot who follows anybody Stronger than him. And I’d love for Aiden to be the assface who “GOT NO GUTS”
I think the main thing to come out of the episodes was Rick’s comments at the end, was racking my brain to remember if he said that in the comic.
I would have guessed he did but the current Rick is a lot different from then.
He said the exact same line in the comic. “if these people can’t make it, then we’ll just take this place”
I love these Panel/Side-by-Side Comparisons, I haven’t read these issues since their release, and I’ve forgotten some of the finer details!! Keep them coming!!
