13. Sam’s Normalcy
Whilst Sam is without doubt a creepy, creepy kid (who is totally going to be at the root of some big problems when the show returns in February), it was an eerie moment to see the semblance of relative normalcy that he has upstairs in his home.
And I don’t mean normalcy as in standard The Walking Dead norm, but as in normal in a way that existed before the undead were shuffling around every street corner.
If Tip-Toe Through The Tulips (which was also freakily used throughout the Insidious movie franchise) constantly playing wasn’t surreal enough, we then see him idly drawing a picture whilst surrounded by a fire truck and some other generic kids toys. Sure, there are ants crawling in through the window, but the rest of the scene was just that of a regular kid doing relatively regular things: something that the series has rarely shown.
