Sunday Night Boob Tube Bonanza: A Whole Lot Of Ass-Kicking On “The Walking Dead” And “Dexter,” Plus Agent Cheekbones Is Up To Something On “Homeland”

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / November 26, 2012

Apologies for not recapping last Monday. I was a little off my game and then our TV-clipping service was down so I couldn’t make clips and recaps are so much more funnn with clips, but yeah, I get it, I am a failure. So, before we get into this week’s episodes, a brief rundown of last week’s episodes of “The Walking Dead,” “Dexter,” and “Homeland,” in haiku form.

“The Walking Dead.” Andrea and the Gov-nah/lovin’ each otha/Carol’s back, let’s greet Michonne!

“Dexter.” Deb blabbed her incest-y crush/Dex prefers Hannah/Isaac still wants his revenge.

“Homeland.” Brody couldn’t deal anymore/Carrie fucked some sense back/Chopper trip to see Nazir!

Got it? Okay great, now let’s move on to last night’s episodes, which I watched before a double-viewing of “Liz & Dick” because I am loyal like that.

“The Walking Dead.” I’ve barely written about “The Walking Dead” on The Frisky, seeing as I just discovered the show two weeks ago. But I am already caught up and totally obsessed and must quickly review my initial thoughts, stream of consciousness style, on the series as a whole: Shane RIP 4 Ever, I blame you Dale, good riddance Lori, Daryl is an unexpected redneck dreamboat, T-dog — gone too soon, who names their kid Carl, why is Carol’s hair still shaved, totally ‘shipping Maggie and Glenn, did you know the guy who plays Rick is British in real life, and dear god, Andrea is the most annoying character ever just kill her already!!!

The most interesting thing about last night’s episode though? The fact that Agent Cheekbones, aka Peter Quinn, is up to something. Saul suspects he’s working for someone else besides the CIA, so he and the boys do some intel on him, going to his apartment and digging up a picture of a woman who Saul goes and interrogates. She won’t give him any information, but his visit prompts her to call Peter, who then takes a mysterious trip on a bus. The surveillance guys catch some photos of Quinn meeting with someone on the bus — a high ranking CIA officer that Saul recognizes. Just what is Cheekbones doing on this mission? Who is he working for and what is his end game? At the end of the episode, Cheekbones is the guy driving the car that picks up Brody from his house — he pulls a gun, preparing to shoot Brody, but then David Estes comes on his earpiece and tells him to stand down, “we still need him.” What the fuck does Estes know? Who is he taking orders from? Gah!!!!

Oh, also, Mike and Jess started bumping uglies again. Finally.
