\"Clear\" is the twelfth episode of the third season of the post-apocalyptic horror television series The Walking Dead, which originally aired on AMC in the United States on March 3, 2013. The episode was written by Scott M. Gimple and directed by Tricia Brock. In this episode, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), and Michonne (Danai Gurira) go on a supply run to Rick's hometown, initially to his old police station, for more weapons for the upcoming battle against The Governor.
Carl and Michonne return, and Carl apologizes to Morgan for shooting him, but Morgan tells him to never be sorry. Rick, Carl, and Michonne gather the offered weapons and depart. As they return to the vehicle, Carl confides to Rick that Michonne \"may be one of us\". Michonne later talks to Rick, informing him that she saw him talking with his dead wife, but admits she also used to have similar episodes in talking to her dead boyfriend. As they drive back, they pass the corpse of the hitchhiker they had passed earlier. They stop the car only to collect his backpack, and then drive on.
In fact, I think she had more lines in this one short episode than she's had so far in the entire show. Between last week's confrontation with Andrea and this week's scavenging, Michonne is quickly becoming the character I hoped she would be (though I won't hold my breath. Once she gets back to camp she could devolve back into the chatty, lovable character she's been all season.) Meanwhile, Andrea was blissfully absent.
It's a perfect way to finish this episode. Whatever we glimpsed between Rick and Morgan, however far these two men had fallen in their separate quests for survival, we saw perhaps an even more poignant portrait in the hitchhiker's fate. The expressionless acceptance that they had allowed this death to happen; the utilitarian scavenging of the dead man's belongings.
\"Clear\" is the twelfth episode of the third season of AMC's The Walking Dead. It is the thirty-first episode of the series overall. It premiered on March 3, 2013. It was written by Scott Gimple and directed by Tricia Brock.
Tonight's episode departed from this season's pattern of splitting the story between characters in Woodbury and characters in the prison. In fact, we only get scenes with Rick, Carl and Michonne for the entire run, with an additional surprise character thrown in for good measure. We don't even get to see Woodbury or the prison, which came as a welcome breath of fresh air.
\"Clear\" was one of those strong character-building episodes I've been longing for this season. There are a few bits of action scattered about, but even our heroes appear to be bored with the same old method of dispatching the undead. What was really interesting were the dynamics between the characters, be it Rick and Michonne, Rick and Carl, Michonne and Carl or, most interesting of all, Rick and Morgan. While the things that happened to Morgan are every bit as gruesome and debilitating as the events that have befallen Rick's group, Morgan had no support group to catch him when he fell and has since descended into a bit of nihilistic madness. At least he has a shitload of guns that he's more than willing to give away!
While Carl is walking the line between upstart teenager and outright douche, I appreciated his sentiment to make sure that little Judith at least grew up knowing what her mother looked like. I'll only dock this episode a point for that bit of the story coming across as a little more silly than sweet, but Michonne finally gets to shine a bit more this time around. And that callback with the hitchhiker at the very end A perfect touch!
The sight of Rick, Carl and Michonne on the road together in the \"family\" vehicle set the tone for the rest of the episode, as the three of them would bond before getting back in it at the end of the day (and yes, I did imagine that these three might break off into a wacky sitcom spinoff, but that's just my dream). After a little car trouble, they made a point of blowing past a non-walker hitchhiker screaming for help on the roadside, solidifying the message of Season 3 thus far: that the living are to be feared even more than the dead. Still, it was haunting to watch them drive away knowing full well what's going to happen to this guy:
I also wanted to point out that Morgan, however disturbed, had the most poignant line of the episode, and maybe even the season so far: \"The good people, they always die. And the bad people do too. But the weak people, the people like me We have inherited the Earth.\" Deep, Morgan. Deep.
The episode almost ended on a happy note, when Carl told his dad that Michonne is \"one of us,\" while Rick bonded with her after she confessed that she knew about his little \"vision\" problem and used to see her dead boyfriend as well. Oh yeah, and she said \"boyfriend,\" for those of you were still holding out hope for a sexy Michonne/Andrea \"survival sex\" flashback (but hey, you never know). But surprise! the hitchhiker from the top of the episode was reduced to a smear of blood and guts on the road on the way home. They didn't say anything, but they did pull over to loot his pack, so that's .... good, I guess.
But that's a far as the episode delves into the main narrative of the season. 'Clear' is more concerned with digging up a bit of Rick's past, in order for him to get a glimpse at his possible future. And in order to do that, the episode brings Rick Grimes face-to-face with Morgan Jones (played by the fantastic Lennie James), the man who saved his life during the series premiere.
If anything, 'Clear' gives Rick, Michonne and Carl a chance to step away from the immediate narrative and better demonstrate why the audience should be so invested in whether or not they survive from one episode to the next. As it stands, this is certainly the best offering since The Walking Dead returned from hiatus, and it may just wind up being the highlight of season 3.
Meanwhile Carl and Michonne are on their big day out. Carl points out a walker Michonne should take care of but while she goes to do it he takes off on her. Who else had a flash back to season two of him just like wondering around the woods alone throwing rocks at zombies Carl you have grown up so much! Stop with the juvenile bullshit. What did he think Michonne would just take the hint and leave him be Risk the wrath of papa Rick because Carl wants to be alone Michonne continues following him and Carl keeps walking like he owns the place.
Sunday's episode of \"The Walking Dead\" was a big episode for Morgan. While delivering two big deaths, season seven, episode 13 referenced many of the Morgan's previous appearances throughout the series you may have missed.
Clear is the name of season three, episode 12 and it's the first time viewers are reintroduced to Morgan since he helped Rick in season one. However, when Rick found Morgan in season three, he was in a dark place. He had lost his son and had seemingly lost his mind.
What better way to celebrate the upcoming 11th and final season of The Walking Dead than by taking a look at what led to where we are Below, we take a look at the best episodes of the AMC drama, including heartbreaking deaths and where it all began.
\"Clear\" is the twelfth episode of season three of the survival horror series The Walking Dead and the twelfth episode of the series overall. It was directed by Tricia Brock and written by Scott M. Gimple. It first aired on the AMC network on Sunday, March 3rd, 2013. In this episode, Rick Grimes, Carl Grimes and Michonne return to Rick's home town of King County to stock up on supplies in their pending war against the Governor. After sifting through various debris and booby traps, Rick comes upon an old ally - Morgan Jones, but Morgan has not been faring very well since they last parted company.
\"It was your [Gimple's] decision, but I just wanted to say the character of Andrea in the comic books was the one that ended up with Rick,\" explained Kirkman. \"We did something different in the show, but [Richonne] was something that Scott started talking about, I believe, in season 4. There were a lot of ... I don't remember the episode number, because I'm old, but the episode, oh it's 'Clear' [season 3, episode 12] when Michonne and Rick and Carl encounter Morgan. We were discussing that kind of stuff all the way back there and there were seeds planted in that episode that you so brilliantly wrote.\"
Going back to season 3, episode 12, \"Clear,\" you see a slight flirtation between the two at the episode's end. Michonne tells Rick she knows he sees things sometimes. She can empathize. She used to talk to her dead boyfriend.
Heading into the season's final four episodes, then, The Walking Dead seems to have shaken off its malaise, at least a little bit. It's possible we'll just drop right back into stories about how the residents of Hilltop settle political disputes, but I somehow doubt that will be the case.
Although I can't think of any other examples off the top of my head (I pretty much just woke up), I know this isn't the first time I've seen a show where a concept from an earlier season gets re-used or expanded on, and this was likely one of those times where one writer probably went back and thought, \"Morgan said this once, we should create a story arc where people literally wear dead people's faces\".
Walking Dead: Clear was one of the five parts of The Walking Dead: The Undead Streets that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights 23. It was located in Hollywood, and was based off of The Walking Dead Season 3 episode of the same name.
Guests are placed in the streets during the season 3 episode of Clear where Walkers have stumbled into traps and camo netting. Projections of warnings are sprawled around the ground and buildings with sniper shooting heard every so often.
\"You are not a lesser man\": A theme that's been addressed a lot this season and one that will be a factor at the end of the episode is how much of their current selves are they willing to sacrifice to fit into a community that could be the key to the future. And those words that were spoken by Carol to Ezekiel explaining why he deserved to be moved up on the operation waitlist only further complicate the debate. Because as much as we know Ezekiel to be a man of belief and conviction, we also won't judge him for wanting to live. 59ce067264
