5 Times Episode 614 Was Just Like The Comics

The latter half of The Walking Dead Season 6 has been FULL of storylines taken right from the comics. Albeit the Carol/Maggie episode, Episode 614 has continued that trend. Below we’ve outlined the five times the episode took a page from the comics and four times it shuffled things around. Enjoy.


1. Eugene’s Bullet-Proof Plan

AbeEugene

Lets’s begin with Eugene’s plan to manufacture ammunition. Like the comics, he floats the idea to Abraham, who’s completely on board (although in the comics Eugene’s more competent and it’s plausible he COULD manufacture his own bullets).

Eugene

Although the factory plays a major role in future issues, they never actually reach it in this particular comic storyline. Instead, they run into this little hiccup:

2. Death By Arrow

Arrow

In both the show and comics a major character is shot through the eye by an arrow from Dwight’s crossbow. HOWEVER, in the comics ABRAHAM is the unlucky victim while Denise takes the fall in the show. In the comics, Abraham is telling Eugene he just wants Rosita to be happy without him (He and Rosita just broke up…she’s living with Eugene and he’s with this Alexandrian woman Holly).

SUDDENLY, Abraham’s shot from behind mid-sentence (like Denise) and dies after a few confused words. Slight difference: Dwight owns his own crossbow where in the show he steals it from Daryl.

3. Dwight’s Ambush

Ambush

In both the comics and show Dwight and his band of Saviors (great actual band name) ambush survivors from Rick’s group and take Eugene hostage. In the comics they kill Abraham and capture Eugene while the show drags Denise, Rosita, and Daryl into the chaos. The main point that both mediums share is a signal that the Saviors are VERY close to Rick’s group and danger is right around the corner. This wasn’t an ambush, it was a warning.

4. Eugene’s *Ahem* Heroics

DickBite

The d*ck-biting scene (as horrific as it was to watch) came STRAIGHT out of the comics. Captured by Dwight and surrounded by Saviors, Eugene did the only thing he could to escape and bit the living hell out of Dwight’s crotch. If Eugene was a Pokemon card his main move would be “Resourcefulness” (which is super effective against d**ks).

The Great Escape

Escape

This series of events was a sh*t show in both the comic and show. Although a dozen or so Saviors were mowed down in both situations, a handful (including Dwight) managed to escape. Rick’s group letting them go signals a MAJOR turning point in the story and will result in fatal ramifications.

Other Changes:

This Supply Run

TWD_614_GP_1023_0106-RT

…didn’t exactly happen. We’re sure some iteration of it occurred but Denise typically never left Alexandria. She also didn’t mention having a twin brother and never did anything as pragmatic like this:

Rick’s Involvement

RickDwight

The show set this Denise-killing, Dwight-appearing, d*ck-biting scene in the woods, whereas in the comics Dwight takes Eugene to the gates of Alexandria. Dwight threatens to kill Eugene if Rick doesn’t let them inside and take whatever (and whomever) they want. Thankfully, Rick has more backup than in the show and instructs his men (and women) to take out The Saviors.

(Also a Mexican standoff between Rick and Dwight would have been AMAZING in the show. Oh well..)

Andrea

Denise’s ACTUAL Death

DeniseDeath

In the comics, Denise lives QUITE a bit longer and is essential to the Alexandrian’s survival. During the Negan conflict (wait until Season 7) Denise ends up getting bit by a re-animated Holly (Abraham’s bae) and refuses to amputate her arm so she can help others. She ends up saving Heath (her bae in the comics) as her last act before she becomes REALLY sick and Michonne is forced to put her down for good.

Carol Leaving

Carol was killed eons ago in the comics so her inner conflict/romance with Heath/cigarette habit/leaving Alexandria just didn’t happen…at all.


What did YOU think of the comparisons? Feel free to comment with any we left out!

    Lost his d, that is awesome. It was a crazy ending to an episode, but just the begining of an even crazier storyline. I can wait….. 2 more weeks.

    SUDDENLY, Abraham’s shot from behind mid-sentence (like Denise) and dies instantly.

    Uh…. neither of them “Died instantly”. They were talking, shot mid-sentence, sputtered out a few more words and then died.

    as someone who strongly prefers the book over the series, I love to see things like this when watching. Those little moments from the books you discuss with your friends, tell those who don’t read it about and finally see them put in action on T.V. Great moments. Great.
