Now that I’ve had a chance to digest Sunday night’s dramatic season finale of The Walking Dead (although I’m still mourning the unexpected death of one of the major characters), my mind has turned back to a few questions that have been bugging me for weeks.
1. Did Andrea somehow manage to find a curling iron? I know life in Woodbury is much cushier than at the prison, but in many scenes, Andrea’s hair looked awfully pretty for someone living in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. See Exhibit A below, from episode 13, “Arrow on the Doorpost.” Her curls are a little too perfect–like they got some help from a Hot Tools curling iron. Which, of course means that Andrea also had access to a secret working power outlet.
2. Why hasn’t Michonne lost her signature headband yet? We know Michonne is a woman of few words. We know she is a badass. We know that she can handle her sword like nobody’s business. But one thing we don’t know is how on earth has she kept that one headband for this long? That thing never slides off her head, not one little bit. Even when Michonne is chopping off walkers’ heads like crazy, her trusty headband stays put. Amazing.
3. Who cuts Carol’s hair? Her short ‘do is slightly longer in the back now compared to what it looked like in season one, but still. Semi-regular trims must have been happening otherwise her hair would have grown into a little bob at this point. Same goes for the guys on the show. Their hair is noticeably shaggier, but not as wild as I would expect. So who acts as the prison hairstylist? My money is on Beth. I can picture her singing one of those haunting ballads she loves so much while carefully snipping away at Carol’s or whoever’s hair.
You can tell that I’ve become desensitized to all the blood and guts on the show because instead of being grossed out while I watch, I sit there and think about this silly stuff. Can’t wait to see what happens to Rick and the gang next season!
