TV Geek Out covers two installments of The Walking Dead with this chat about "Vatos" and "Wildfire," the 4th and 5th episodes of the series. In "Vatos," Rick, Glenn, T-Dog, and Daryl react to the discovery of Merle's severed hand in Atlanta, follow his trail of blood, and attempt to retrieve Rick's big bag of guns. Complications quickly arise when they run into another human in the middle of the operation, who calls out for help from his seemingly hostile gang of survivors. Back at camp, sisters Andrea and Amy go fishing and Jim is obsessed with digging holes, but the big event is the gruesome nighttime zombie attack! during the fish fry that night. "Wildfire," deals with the fallout from that horrific attack, in which, among other victims, Amy was killed and Jim was bitten. Andrea is traumatized and won't leave her sister's corpse... until Amy eventually turns into a zombie and Andrea puts her out of her misery. Meanwhile, the group is split over where to go now that their campsite is no longer safe, and how to handle the Jim situation as he slowly deteriorates. And in the last part of the episode, the show takes a leap into the CDC, where a sole scientist is still toiling away trying to develop a cure for the outbreak. Listen in as TV geeks Heather, Perry, and Dana discuss all this and more here!
