Rick loves his pistol, "Blendy"

We Are The Walking Dead

We Are The Walking Dead

“When I was a kid, I asked my grandpa once if he ever killed any Germans in the war. He wouldn’t answer. He said that was grown up stuff, so…. So I asked if the Germans ever tried to kill him, but he got real quiet. He said he was dead the minute he steeped into enemy territory. Every day he woke up he told himself, ‘rest in peace—now get up and go to war.’ And then after a few years of pretending he was dead, he made it out alive. And that’s the trick of it, I think. We do what we need to do, and then we get to live. But no matter what we find in DC I know we’ll be okay, because this is how we survive. We tell ourselves that we are the walking dead.

Rick Grimes rarely discusses personal details with the rest of the group, but in Season 5, Episode 10, "Them", he states what is sure to become the most iconic pieces of dialog in the series.

With Bob, Beth and Tyreese gone, everyone in the group is finding it difficult to go on, compounded by the lack of food and water (the dogs probably weren't too filling). Rick’s speech, given in a desolate barn is intended to inspire the group.


According to Andrew Lincoln, "Them" is the closest The Walking Dead has come to a  Cormac McCarthy story.

He told Entertainment Weekly:

"When I was preparing for the first season of this show I read a few things and The Road was one of them. I just thought that is a modern parable. I mean that’s what it is: It’s a kind of classic parable and that’s the closest thing I can equate it to. I think there’s a simplicity, a directness, and a poetry in that book. Certainly the script had it and I hope we’ve managed to capture that in episode 10."

What did you think of Rick's speech in Episode 10?  Did you prefer the comic version?

Support an Independent Film, Get A Signed Norman Reedus Photograph

Support an Independent Film, Get A Signed Norman Reedus Photograph

Dynamite director, Tate Steinsiek is friends with a lot of the cast of The Walking Dead! They've teamed up to try and get their independent film off the ground and need your help.

The producers asked if we could share their project info on your All Things Walking Dead because they know that our readers are hardcore TWD fans.

Temptation is constant in the human experience, but few demons are so callous and consuming as drug abuse. From Ill Willed SFX head and director Steinsiek, "Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale" explores a true story of heroin addiction and personal redemption.

Production on this independent film starring Ian Harding, Evanna Lynch, Carol Kane and more has successfully wrapped, and the producers now are asking for support for the post production process. on Indiegogo.

Based on a true story, Max Bornstein had the wit, looks, and charm that would carry him beyond the typical man's troubles. Yet, the typical man's troubles were the least of Max's worries: He was a full-time dope fiend and a part-time father working within the underground, highly illegal pornography industry.

Even in the wake of a federal investigation, Max's truest worry was his wife and two young children: A family kept in the dark about Max's reality and the walls of it caving in around him.

For contributions of $75 US, supporters can receive an autographed photo from Daryl Dixon, himself, Norman Reedus, Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) or John Bernthal (Shane Walsh).

Tate, Norman, Jon, Scott, and all of the Dynamite team would be extremely appreciative if you'd help out by spreading the word.
