Watching the Walking Dead season finale tonight, I only remembered pieces of what lined up with the comics, even though I’ve read them at least up to this point (I know I’m behind somewhat on the comics, but not that far behind). The episode was truly riveting and properly tense, and the ultimate pivotal moment was basically a direct lift that I had completely forgotten.
Cat Brain didn’t really work too hard to commit every detail of the comics to my memory, I guess. I think I read them more in Dog Brain mode, consuming for the sake of consuming rather than for the sake of retaining. Which means I can re-read them and much of it will feel new. So that’s cool.
