Episode 416: Panel to Screen Comparison

Season Finale! It was a hum-dinger!

The definitive comic moment tonight, and the one that’s a BIG, crazy moment from the comics, is the attempted rape of Carl by bandits. The players and situation have changed a bit, but a lot of the action and the fall out is the same.

In the comic (issue 57, Volume 10: What We Become), Rick, Abraham, and Carl take a side trip to Rick and Carl’s hometown to check for supplies at the police station and the check on Morgan and Duane. Their first night out, they’re held at gunpoint by a small group of men.

When Carl is endangered, Rick fights back, but ends up in a bear hug, his arms trapped at his sides.
2Rick-Fights-Back-compare-small



Rick goes full savage, ripping Joe’s throat out like a walker.
3Rick-Bites-compare



With just Carl’s attempted rapist left, Rick insists on killing him himself, and it’s not pleasant.

You can see that in the show, Rick’s actions are almost identical. Granted, this time it’s “The Claimers” (as the fans have been calling Daryl’s group) and not some nameless bandits. Also, it’s Michonne who Rick is with, not Abraham (whom he has yet to meet).

It changes Rick in both cases, but in the comic, Abraham is the one who ends up confessing a troubled history of his own ruthlessness. In the show, Rick confesses his fears about his humanity to an understanding Daryl. In both cases, Carl listens in.

The last big thing that we’re able to show you is the very end of the show, which hopefully was VERY familiar to comic readers, even if the setting and situation isn’t exactly the same. This is from the final panel of issue 64 from Volume 11: Fear the Hunters.

What did we miss, or what do you THINK we missed? We can’t give everything away, you know. 😉

    The man near the beginning of the episode getting overwhelmed by the walkers is from the comics. You missed that.

    Not gonna be surprised if Gareth chops off Rick’s hand in season 5. It would only make sense. Also, it would be badass if Rick in the show pays homage to Dale’s leg incident in the comic, claiming that he got infected as Gareth or the other Terminus residents gnaw on his hand. Great way to end season 4 by the way, looking forward to season 5 😀

    Freakin’ awesome. Good to see that BAMF Rick is back! Sucks to wait until October though. Rick ripping that guy’s throat out is one of my favorite scenes from the book. As a father, I totally feel where he’s coming from. The only thing that would have made it better in the show was a dramatic slo-mo of the bite (imho). Cannot wait to see how they resolve this.

    It would be funny if they are still standing there and the door opens to reveal Carol, who has gone through and eliminated everyone at Terminus. Just saying.

      And I am especially glad that Joe wasn’t Negan. The whole “rules” thing had me worried that they were going to rush into the Saviors storyline. But awesome turning Terminus into the Hunters… onward to Alexandria!

    You missed one thing that I’m not sure if people caught on to, Carl now has Andrea’s scar. The odds he loses his eye are probably low now.

    Freaking amazing. LOVED that they went there, if only Rick could have used the REAL last line *sigh* if only. They can show him ripping out a throat but can’t say the f word?

    Love the panel comparisons! Having a fan of the comic function as show runner paid off big time this season. Now let’s get together and build a time machine- October is too far away.

    We knew Terminus was going to have cannibals but no idea that the community of hunters was as large as seen on tv.

    I can’t believe Rick and his entire group fell for that trap. What suckers; they were so dump they deserved to get caught. Since it was so easy to get in, they should have infiltrated Terminus at night and OBSERVED and LISTENED from a hidden position.

    This was done remarkably I was so hype this episode to see all this play out the way it did was just awesome.

    Can show intense amounts of gore and Rick biting someone’s throat out.

    Can’t say “fucking” and use “screwing” instead.

    AMC logic.

    where was Tyrese, Carol and “little ass-kicker Judith” ????
    will they be the ones to save the group?

    I have not read the comics but they do look great may have to pick some up. I thought reading them might ruin the shows for me but the comparrison will be interesting

      the comics don’t ruin the show by any means. there are a lot of differences as far as what characters are still alive so really the comics, to me, make the show even better because you get to look for the similarities and anticipate comic panels ect. and yet the show will surprise you still and the surprise is just that much better when you have an expectation that seems to have gone undone in the show and then it happens but with a twist. You get what I’m sayin?

    The one guy at the beginning who got swarmed was taken down and bitten EXACTLY like he was in the comics. Even Rick and Carls reactions are the same.

    Loving the page to screen this week, great to see the pages come to life like it has. these were big moments for Rick, a real shift in his TV persona.

    Gareth looks a fucking lot like Chris

    I will pick up the comics as now that we have to wait until fall I need more walking dead. I would even like the soundtrack on my phone and beth songs I love her voice when she is singing in the prison.. Most of the music rocks and that song that plays when they get to terminus keeps going thru my head but cannot find out what it is yet, does anyone know? Walking dead just cannot get enough lol

    The name of the guy that welcomed Rick and the others into this bbq place is Alex. In the comics there’s also an Alex, but he’s not on the bad side of Ricks’ fury.

    So awesome that they are so close.. however I have to say that when I read the comic I remember thinking that Carl looks hardened by the experience… he seems pissed off and is glad to watch Rick dispense justice.. when you look at the TV screen shot Riggs just looks traumatized.. he does’nt have that hard look that Carl has in the comic book.

    Sure hope the DVD has the f bomb version that Andrew confirmed was shot on Talking Dead! I was hoping they would just let him say it but cut it out like Breaking Bad used to, it would’ve been legendary!!
