The Walking Dead recap show is LIVE for the first time on Collider Video with hosts John Steve Rocca, Kaori Takee, Quinn Marie and Josh Macuga. These fans of The Walking Dead break down episode 2 of season 6, titled “JSS.” The crew discusses the Wolves invasion, Carol the Assassin, Morgan the pacifist, Enid the Terrible and of course Carl the Killer. There are a lot of laughs, theories and no Walkers biting any of the hosts, though if the studio was overrun by Walkers, Macuga would be the first to get bitten.

This week’s episode, “JSS”, was especially violent. The Walking Dead has made an art out of killing and this episode is a Rembrandt. “JSS”, we find out by the end of the episode, stands for “Just Survive Somehow”, whether that’s by eating a raw turtle and not getting food poisoning or stabbing a grimy Wolf with barber scissors. We learn the origin of Enid at the beginning of the episode and all four members of the show agreed that  creates origin stories very very well. Enid is a stone cold killer and a savage, and not one for the world of Alexandria and it’s apparent that everyone can see now that she’s better off alone roaming the woods looking for her next meal or to be someone’s next meal.

This episode however, is literally a ticking clock thanks to the device of Carol’s casserole baking in the oven and the town of Alexandria being overrun by The Wolves. Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Glenn are all absent as we see why the horn blows ruining Rick’s plan of the great ‘Walker Cattle Rustling’ in episode one. It’s now Carol and Morgan’s turn to save the town with a little help from everyone including Carl wielding an AK … yes Ice Cube, today was not a good day, because he had to use his AK.

Carol and Morgan work together yet apart. Morgan does not kill and all Carol does is put bullets in enemies heads and knives in their cerebral cortexes. “JSS” was the kind of episode that dares you to ask, “Would I be a war time hero or the kind of person that hides waiting for it to end playing Candy Crush on your iPhone?” The biggest questions left for us all are: Who let in the Wolves? When are they coming back? And when they do come back, will Rick be there to put bullets in heads with Carol or try the civil route with Morgan or will Morgan finally embrace the brutality of “JSS”?

The Walking Dead recap show is hosted by John Steven Rocca, Kaori Takee, Quinn Marie and Josh Macuga. They are here on Collider every week talking, answering your questions and most importantly entertaining all of you The Walking Dead fans. Thank you for watching!
