Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was much calmer than last week, and we were happy for a lull in the action. Check out our Walking Dead recap for the full details on “Say the Word.”

There wasn’t a whole lot of action in tonight’s episode, but we learned a lot. The show was once again split between Woodbury and the prison. Our Walking Dead recap breaks down both settings.

Over in Woodbury, there’s a big party going on, but the Governor is busy elsewhere, spending some quality time with his daughter, Penny. Nice, right? You would think so, until you find out that Penny is a zombie.

The Governor still loves her, though, as creepy as that is.

Michonne isn’t in a partying mood, so instead she decides to steal back her katana once the Governor leaves his house. She wouldn’t have gotten caught with it except for her little side trip to kill a bunch of caged walkers.

Michonne
 

The Governor tries to take her katana away again, but she uses her quickness to grab it back, threatening to drive it through the Governor’s throat. He lets her go after this, but he then tries to use Andrea to persuade Michonne to stay.

He gets under Michonne’s skin by telling her that she fits in Woodbury, and he wants her to be a part of his research team. She is still determined to leave, and even Andrea can’t convince her otherwise.

Michonne and Andrea try to test whether or not they can actually leave, and when Merle lets them through, Andrea is torn. She wants to stay and be comfortable in Woodbury, but she also wants to be with Michonne, who is her best friend. Michonne ends up leaving, and Andrea stays behind. We’re sad to see this breakup, but will Michonne be back?

Could the Governor track her down?

That evening, the Governor is more concerned with helping his townsfolk relax. Andrea accompanies him to this nighttime event, and we are soon introduced to a “zombie fight club” (as Chris Hardwick of Talking Dead likes to call it). Two people – in this case Merle and another guy – compete in hand-to-hand combat in the middle of an arena surrounded by chained walkers.

The Governor and Andrea
 

Andrea is disgusted, but when she tries to leave, the Governor pulls her back. She thinks that this is showing people that walkers aren’t dangerous, but he argues that it’s helping people to not be afraid. He explains to her how they remove the zombies’ teeth (which explains Merle taking out the one zombie’s teeth while they were poaching them), so they’re not as deadly.

Andrea looks like she wishes she had gone with Michonne now. (Merle wins this fight, by the way.)

Back in the prison, Rick is breaking down. Instead of staying with his new baby and comforting his motherless son, Rick goes on a zombie-killing rampage inside of the prison walls. Glenn even tries to calm Rick down and make him stop, but Rick is completely out of it and pushes Glenn up against a wall when he touches him.

After that, Glenn just lets him go.

Daryl takes Maggie on a trip to get supplies for the new baby, and when they find a daycare center, Maggie is able to snag some dried baby formula and diapers. They make it back to the prison safely, but Rick is nowhere in sight.

Daryl takes the baby from Carl, and works on quieting it quickly once they whip up some formula. Seeing Daryl holding that baby set off strong emotional reactions in Dixon’s Vixens everywhere. He was so sweet and adorable with her, even calling her a “little a** kicker.”

Daryl also breaks our hearts when he places a Cherokee rose on the grave meant for Carol. When they were looking for Sophia last season, this is the same flower he told her was grown from Native American mother’s tears as they left their homes on the Trail of Tears. So sweet and sad.

Daryl Dixon
 

We learn that Rick has gone back to the room where Lori gave birth and died, but there is no sign of her except for the blood. Instead he finds a bloated walker, who according to co-executive producer and director of tonight’s episode Greg Nicotero, actually ate Lori’s body.

If you look closely, you can see traces of Lori’s hair in the walker’s hands and mouth. Ew.

So that explains why Rick then shoots the walkers and stabs its bloated belly repeatedly. He also picks up the bullet off of the floor that Carl used to put Lori down. Fun fact: Nicotero also revealed that Andrew Lincoln keeps that bullet in his pocket while filming at all times.

Finally, amid the distant cries of his newborn child, Rick hears a phone start ringing, and then picks it up. Who could be on the other end? If you’ve read the comics, you have a pretty good idea of who it probably is.

There’s still no sign of Carol (since we don’t believe she’s dead), and Glenn is also convinced that they should have killed the prisoners on sight. Even though Oscar and Axel seem to be all right, could Glenn try to kill them off later this season?

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”

The Dominators

The Dominators, collectively known as the Dominion, are an alien race from the farthest reaches of the universe. A technologically-advanced species who specialize in genetics, their society is extremely hierarchical, with status depending on the size of a red circle that appears on their foreheads.

Invasion! was a major, three-issue crossover event in 1989 that featured the Dominators joining an Alien Alliance to wipe out humanity due to the threat the meta-gene that allows for humans to develop superpowers presents.

When they traveled to Earth, heroes and villains alike teamed up to fight to protect the world. The Dominators were also an enemy of the Legion of Superheroes in the 30th century.

It’s also worth noting that Arrow‘s 100th’s episode will air during the crossover, so we should definitely expect something special.

Are you looking forward to the crossover between ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’?

Hypable’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist

‘Where You Lead I Will Follow’ by Carole King and Louise Goffin

What better way to kick off a Gilmore Girls playlist than with the show’s famous theme song? It’s the perfect opening song. (And if you choose to play it on repeat, that’s completely acceptable.)
 

‘This is Hell’ by Elvis Costello

It makes perfect sense that Jess’ first impression of Stars Hollow would be narrated by this song. After all, the starry-eyed small town life can be kind of overwhelming at first.
 

‘There She Goes’ by The La’s

Fact: This was the very first song played on Gilmore Girls! It accompanied an introductory look around Stars Hollow before introducing our favorite gals. Oh, the memories!
 

‘Then She Appeared’ by XTC

What a perfect song to mark Rory and Jess’ first kiss. It’s perfectly sweet and tender and just oh-so-totally them. It’s hard not to imagine the scene when listening to this song.
 

‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ by The White Stripes

This was one of the songs that Hep Alien played at their very first gig! Sure, it wasn’t really a great night for Jess/Rory or the band, but it started out well enough!
 

‘Reflecting Light’ by Sam Phillips

As if Luke and Lorelai weren’t cute enough together at Luke’s sister’s wedding, they had to go and dance beautifully to this tender song.
 

‘Human Behaviour’ by Björk

What would a Gilmore Girls playlist be without including a song from one of the girls’ biggest inspirations? Just take a listen and think of their famous snow creation.
 

‘Eternal Flame’ by The Bangles

Make one of Lorelai’s favorite bands one of your favorite bands by listening to this track on our Gilmore Girls playlist on repeat!
 

‘One Line’ by PJ Harvey

“I love you, you idiot” is probably one of the most quotable lines on the show. This song just set the mood and really made it that much more memorable. It’s nothing less than perfect.
 

‘So Says I’ by the Shins

Who could ever forget the spring break scene where Paris tries to make out with Rory on the dance floor? The fact that The Shins were playing this song live during the scene just made it so much better.
 

‘Time Bomb’ by Rancid

Not only did Lane dance to this catchy tune in Rory’s room toward the beginning of the first season, but Hep Alien eventually covers it during a performance later in the series!
 

‘When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues’ by Bing Crosby and Gary Crosby

Watching Rory and Richard bond over this song in the hospital room is still one of the most memorable scenes of the series. Pour one out for the wonderful Richard Gilmore. We miss you, friend.
 

‘Inside Out’ by The Mighty Lemon Drops

The Gilmore Girls series finale was such a bittersweet episode, but this song definitely made for one of the most memorable moments: Luke and Lorelai kissing!
 

‘If I Could Write’ by Sam Phillips

This emotional song sums up the Gilmore girls’ love for each other perfectly, especially in times of sadness. Who could ever forget this song playing as Rory packs for a grip to Europe with Emily after fighting with Lorelai?
 

‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper

Lorelai and Emily Gilmore walking a catwalk to Cyndi Lauper’s greatest hit? Classic. Though they may not have gotten along often, at least they could bond over this song.
 

‘O’Oh’ by Yoko Ono

Remember that time when Rory skipped school to walk through New York with Jess, stopping for food and record shopping? This song was the perfect accompaniment for their adventure.
 

The La La Tunes by Sam Phillips

Okay, so these aren’t really actual songs per say, but Gilmore Girls wouldn’t be Gilmore Girls without them (and so neither would the Gilmore Girls playlist)! They’re so iconic!
 

‘My Little Corner of the World’ by Yo La Tengo

We decided to end our Gilmore Girls playlist on a cute note with this sweet song. The mental image of Rory and Lorelai runing at each other from across town during the season 1 finale is enough to make anyone smile.

 

What song(s) would you add to our ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist?
