*slides wish across the table towards you* Dark Satire, give me the forbidden Tragedy facts

WHEN IM VERY SAD AND COMEDY IS BUSY TRAGEDY ALWAYS COMES TO KEEP ME COMPANY

THEY USE THEIR ICE POWERZ TO MAKE ICE FLOWERS FOR ME

THEN WE GO OUTSIDE TOGETHER AND THEY TELL ME ABOUT THE STARS AND THE MOON, TRAGEDY ALSO TELLS ME STORIES ABOUT THEM WHERE WE MAKE A ROCKET AND FLY TO THE MOON TO MEET ALIENS!!!

THEN A LOT OF ANIMALZ SHOW UP TO LISTEN AND WE PET THEM

TRAGEDY IS A GOOD GUARDIAN EVEN IF THEY LOOKS VERY MEANIE, THEY LIKE TO BE SCARY BECAUSE THEY WANT PEOPLE TO TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY.

Man, it is UNCANNY that shortly after musing on how tired I am of the Penders thing, the guy gives me something so very fresh to work with.

Methinks the man doth protest too much~

But seriously, Penders, when trying to defend yourself from the accusation of being a ripoff, don’t bring up a pair of storylines from things you explicitly enjoy, ESPECIALLY when one of the franchises you invoke is one you’ve already repeatedly lifted from (I’m talking Star Trek of course). 

But you know, fair’s fair- Knuckles DIDN’T go nuts. No, nothing that interesting- he just faffed about uselessly and accomplished all of nothing with his SUpreme Chaos Powerz, and then promptly died and visited an afterlife that served as a glorified recap… a gimmicky move evocative of the Death and Return of Superman, only much less interesting. So hey, two ripoffs for the price of one!

The fictional Morley cigarettes. Can we talk about those? I know that they have been used in other t.v. shows after the X- Files, but I can't help but notice that Daryl finds them, smokes one, and at that point, has basically written off saving Noah because he hurt CAROL. Are the cigarettes an "easter egg" implying a Sculder and Mulder type relationship?

I actually made an out loud noise when I saw what brand the cigarettes were, because I’m such a giant XF fan and way to stick a random and hilarious homage to the mothership into that episode. There are so many words in me that I don’t have time to type at the moment, because adulting and work, but this much I will say:

Floating here and there about the interwebz, I repeatedly see the argument that, “If Carol and Daryl were going to ‘happen’ (I have to put that word in quotes, because they’ve already happened as far as I’m concerned, but if you’re someone who needs tab A in slot B to consider a relationship ‘real,’ well then whatever) they would have happened already.”

And every time I see it, I just laugh. The most famous ship of all time took seven seasons to trade a chaste (but perfect) kiss on the lips. There wasn’t a single moment in “Consumed” that didn’t demonstrate exactly how close Daryl and Carol have become since the series started. They’re so attuned to each other, so quietly connected, so effortlessly in synch. They reach out for each other both physically and emotionally without even thinking about it. They even wind up standing the same way half the time.

However, do I think the show is using those cigarettes to try to suggest Daryl and Carol are the next Mulder and Scully? LOL, no. And I only say that because I think this entire fandom makes a hilarious mess of all these “Easter eggs,” most of which usually turn out to be absolutely nothing.

That scene was fabulous on so many levels, but I’m ngl. The cavewoman in me absolutely loves the fact that Daryl’s line in the sand is Carol. Until Noah endangered her, he was “just a kid.” The second Noah compromised her safety, Daryl was legit going to let a walker eat the kid until Carol used her supreme powerz over him to intervene.

It doesn’t get much more shippy than that, does it? :D
