Spoilers: Who Will Die In The Walking Dead Finale?

AMC

There are two episodes left of the ninth season of The Walking Dead, The Calm Before and The Storm, and both are expected to take place during a pivotal moment in the series, the Trade Fair, an event that the series has been building toward since the time jump after Ricks departure from the series. The trade fair is designed as a community-building event for The Hilltop, Alexandria, and The Kingdom, as well as an opportunity for the three communities to enact the vision that Rick and Michonne had for their futures, embodied in the charter written by Michonne and subsequently passed on to Ezekiel.

Its no spoiler to anyone who has been watching the series so far to say that The Whisperers will disrupt the fair and that there will be a large body count. The details, however, are spoilers, so be warned that the content that follows will be based, in part on the comics, on the accidental spoiler of a cast member of the series, and our own speculation. If you dont want to be spoiled, back away now.

‘Us’: Jordan Peele switches horror spotlight to a black family

Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke star in Jordan Peele’s horror film “Us,” about a family facing invaders during a summer getaway. USA TODAY

Somewhere in the middle of writing his new movie Us, Jordan Peele had an epiphany. There was a black family at the center of thisthing, and the Oscar-winning filmmaker of Get Out alongtime fright-fest connoisseur recognized hed never seen that before in a horror film.

I realized that elementwas pushing the boundaries of representation that have been established and that that was an important thing, says Peele, who won a screenwriting Academy Award for his 2017 directorial debut.

The Armitage clan at the center of his social thriller Get Out was white and also really evil. The families dealing with crazy circumstances infilms such as Poltergeist, The Shining and Hereditary are also white. Butin Us” (in theaters Friday), the Wilsons mom Adelaide (Lupita Nyongo), dad Gabe (Winston Duke), teen daughter Zora (Shahadi Wright Joseph) and youngson Jason (Evan Alex) are an African-American family who come face-to-face withmalevolent doppelgangers and have to survive a night with their lookalikes trying to kill them.

Review: Jordan Peele’s thoughtfully freaky ‘Us’ proves ‘Get Out’ was no fluke

When I did my first movie, I was just hoping it wouldn’t get shut down, Peele says, laughing. Now I’m in a place whereI get to say, Look, I’m going to have this black family at the center (because) that’s what I want to see. So there is a special-ness, a now-ness.

Many moviegoers will connect with various family members, and Peele thinks they’re all a little part of him though afterhaving his first son, Beaumont, with wife Chelsea Peretti in 2017, the director could relate more to Gabe. “He’s the average American dad that we all recognize,” Peele says.

Duke’s goal with Gabe was to give his fun-loving (at least until the horror stuff starts) father a familiar appeal for the audience and have himfeel a lot like Homer Simpson, like they could invite him into their living rooms one time a week for 24 years.

The “Black Panther” starappreciates Peele’s progressive workin a genre that usually isnt in support of blackness, he says. The black family no longer becomes the primary and first casualty. You see them as heroes. You see them as the all-American nuclear family. It’s not primarily white faces in those positions and that’s really refreshing.

Adds Wright Joseph: “Representation is really important for young black kids in America. To see people that look like them in a horror movie, or just any movie, really makes us feel so special.”

Hark, a vagrant: 285

I love it when Halloween comes around and I get to make comics for it! Here we have Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a book written to tell ladies that if you’re not a submissive waif, society goes to hell and ungodly monsters are going to turn you into child killing horrors and someone is going to drive a bowie knife through your heart/cut off your head/etc. As you deserve! Thanks Bram! I wrote it down so as to remember it.

But don’t get me wrong, I prefer my vampires to be moustachioed 1890s types more than the sexy kind you see nowadays. Maybe Carmilla was sexy, I forget. Anyway.

By the way, have you ever read Dracula? It’s a very good read, you may be surprised.

The Store is actually starting to update with new material bit by bit, there are several shirts and mugs coming in, plus the onesie I mentioned! But in the meantime, there are always prints available, which I keep not mentioning but let me tell you, it’s true.

And I have two interviews to tell you about, done with two very lovely and informed people! It was a pleasure. Here they are:

the first is the podcast Comics News Insider with Joe Gonzalez and Jimmy Aquino, I was there for their 300th episode and they had some great guests!

the second is a long interview with Laura Hudson of Comics Alliance. I’m told it’s interesting to read, so, phew. I don’t want to bore you.

The Walking Dead Just Showed It Doesnt Need To Kill …

The Walking DeadAMC

I spent a great deal of reviewer capital hyping up last nights episode of The Walking Dead, Scars. While I have some people saying I went too far, the general reaction to the episode is that yes, it is one of the all-time greats. Stacked up against the top ten episodes in series history on IMDB, Scars is already coming in at around #8 with a 9.3 rating, the highest any episode has been rated there since season 5. I told you it was good.

Yesterdays episode was unique because it did not contain the shocking death of a major character to try and provoke a reaction from fans, a common tactic of The Walking Dead as a series. It was almost entirely a flashback episode, meaning that we know every major character survives because they all have in present day. Rather, it was about figuring out what happened to Michonne and Daryl to scar them both physically and psychologically.

All season long, this question has bothered me. What could the show possibly come up with to explain why Michonne is so angry and distrustful now that doesnt have to do with Ricks death? How could it be a secret between her and Daryl, as Norman Reedus said it was? How could it be that important if no one we know of died because of it?

Last nights episode answered all of those questions flawlessly. Michonne let in an injured woman to Alexandria who turned out to be one of her best friends from college. The woman was hurt and desperately needed to make it back to her community, she said, and when Michonne led a group there she found that her friend had been taking care of a huge collection of orphaned children.

Its the perfect set-up because how could you A) not trust someone you used to be best friends with and B) not feel the need to take in a collection of orphans during the apocalypse?

The Walking DeadAMC

Of course, there was a general sense of foreboding during all of this because we knew that something bad was going to happen, and something bad does. One night, Michonnes friend executes her plan, one that she apparently has performed many, many times before. The children rise up and kill people guarding the food and supplies, they steal everything, including some of the children of the community, and escape through the sewers.

This all culminates in an absolutely stunning sequence where Michonne and Daryl go to find the children and Jocelyn in an abandoned school (perfect), but are captured and branded. They escape, Michonne murders Jocelyn, her former friend, and then is forced to square off against teens and literal children as they both are about to go execute Judith and the other community children, and keep trying to stab at her pregnant belly.

So, Michonne kills them all. Juxtaposed against a scene in present day where Michonne is slashing through walkers also to get to Judith, Michonne kills all the murderous children to save her own. Daryl, emerging with bloody knives from the school, appears to have done the same. And thats the secret they share.

Its a powerful, stunning episode, anchored by Danai Guriras award-worthy performance. The show is really going to miss her when she leaves next year. And the episode did all of this without needing to kill anyone. And honestly, I think The Walking Deads major deaths almost always feel like they do more harm than good:

The list goes on and on. Id argue that there have only been a few, truly well-handled deaths in the series history. Sophia, Tyreese, Mika and Lizzie, and Jesus introducing the Whisperers all come to mind. But the point is usually when The Walking Dead tries to extract emotion from its fanbase with these big deaths, it often feels forced and pointless and like its doing more harm than good. This episode showed that you can have a powerful episode without needing to kill any major characters if you set it up correctly, which is exactly what we saw with Scars.

Maybe I overhyped it for you, or maybe you agree that its an all-time great. Im not changing my tune, and I truly believe its a top three episode in series history.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 9, Episode 14 Review: ‘Scars’ Is A …

Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead was one of the most harrowing, brutal episodes the show has ever delivered, and it answers some big questions about what happened to Michonne and Daryl during the time jump.

Spoilers through Season 9 of ‘The Walking Dead’ follow.

The brutal secret behind Michonne and Daryl’s mysterious scars is revealed in Sunday night’s episode of ‘The Walking Dead’. 2018 AMC Film Holdings LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Now that was an amazing episode of The Walking Dead. Filled with betrayal, terror, torture and the kind of gripping excitement that keeps you on the edge of your seat, I didn’t think we’d ever see an episode like this again from AMC’s zombie drama. Thank goodness, I was wrong.

‘Scars’ tells two stories. One set in the modern day, one in the past not long after the death/disappearance of Rick Grimes. In both stories, Michonne loses Judith, albeit briefly. But she learns different lessons from each.

In the modern day story, Daryl and his group (Connie, Henry and Lydia) arrive at Alexandria looking for some help. They don’t intend to stay, knowing Michonne’s reluctance to let in strangersLydia, in this case. She even tells Lydia, in so many words, that she should leave on her own to let everyone else off the hook.

Daryl and his group only stay long enough to get Henry patched up and then off they go again, on their own. (No, Daryl is not being set up to “leave the show” as some clickbait fake journalism nonsense would have you believe.)

Judith isn’t happy about this. She’s mad at her mom for making them leave. She doesn’t understand why, and so she sneaks off and follows them to help them because they’re her friends. She loves Daryl and can’t bear to see him turned away.

Michonne goes looking for her and turns to Negan for help. He tells her that the reason Judith likes talking to him is because he’s straight with her. He tells her the truth. Michonne scoffs at this and asks if he told her what he did to Glenn and Abraham. Turns out, he’s told her everything and that honesty and openness has brought them closer, while Michonne’s refusal to tell her what happened has had the opposite effect.

So what did happen?

Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) 2018 AMC Film Holdings LLC. All Rights Reserved.

The second story is a flashback, taking us back to the days not long after Rick disappeared, back when Michonne and Daryl were still regularly trying to find some trace of him. This is before Michonne became the hardened, bitter woman we know her as now. I’ve been at my wit’s end with her character for the past six or seven episodes because she’s so different than she used to be. She’s shut everyone out and taken a completely isolationist stance around Alexandria.

Well, it turns out she has a pretty good reason, after all. A small group shows up at Alexandria in need of help. One of the survivors is Jocelyn, a woman Michonne knew back in the days before the end of the world. They haven’t seen one another in fifteen years, and so naturally Michonne takes them in and helps treat Jocelyn’s wounds.

There are others in their group who need help, however, and so Michonne and some of the others go find them. It turns out that other than one young man, the entire group consists of children of various ages. That’s . . . odd, to say the least, and might even be a red flag if Michonne and Jocelyn weren’t old friends.

And everyone seems happy to be there. The kids all play with the Alexandrian children. Michonne and Jocelyn talk about the past and Michonne opens up about Rick and her quest to find him, or learn the truth of what happened to him. Michonne is very pregnant at this point, and having an old friend comes as a huge relief.

The newcomers stay for a while. Earn the trust of the Alexandrians. Several parents start letting their kids spend the night with Jocelyn’s crew, including Michonne. So when they go to find their kids one morning and nobody is there, the worry sets in quickly. Michonne starts yelling for Judith, and then they discover that the larder has been emptied and its guard killed. Bloody footprints lead to the sewer.

Jocelyn and her group are nowhere to be found, and Judith and several other kids are gone with them. We realize pretty quickly how Jocelyn actually came about having all these kids. She’s been stealing them, like some crazy Pied Piper, taking them from their real families and then training them to be her little soldiers.

Before we get to exactly what happened with the scars I want to point out two small complaints I have for an otherwise excellent episode:

Michonne (Danai Gurira) 2018 AMC Film Holdings LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Okay, now that those complaints are out of the way (and seriously, it wouldn’t have killed the writers of this episode to cover these bases a little better!) let’s get on to the good stuff.

When Michonne and Daryl track down Jocelyn’s group, they aren’t expecting what they’ll find at all. Neither are we. Michonne finds them first, and suddenly she’s facing a group of heavily armed kids. They have knives and bows. When Daryl rounds the corner, one of them shoots him with an arrow. Michonne puts down her sword, and one of the kids bashes her over the head, knocking her out.

When they come to, they find themselves bound, their arms over their heads. Jocelyn, looking super creepy, instructs a boy and a girl to take fiery hot brands and burn them into both Daryl and Michonne’s backs. Hence the scars. Later, when they escape, the kids repeat some weird thing Jocelyn has taught them about marking their targets then killing their targets. So I guess this is all part of some twisted ritual.

Speaking of escape, this is my final complaint about the episode. In some very peculiar editing, we see Daryl take out his guard and free Michonne, but the scene starts with Daryl already in the middle of this process and it’s very confusing. I really don’t understand how that made it into the final cut. And then they split up, because in TV shows it’s always a good idea to split up in these dangerous situations, when we all know in real life we would never do that. Oh well.

In any case, this is where things get . . . crazy. They escape and go looking for Judith and the other Alexandria kids. Once again, they’re waylaid by Jocelyn and her brainwashed kids. Jocelyn sends two of them after Michonne while her and the rest make good their escape.

What follows is madness.

Daryl searching for Judith. 2018 AMC Film Holdings LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Michonne is forced to fight children. The children won’t back down. She keeps pleading with them to stop, but they don’t. When she gets out of the building, Jocelyn hits her with a piece of wood, knocking her to the ground. She goes in for the kill, but Michonne gets her sword and takes Jocelyn out at the leg, then without any messing around drives that sucker right through the evil woman’s heart.

It’s at this point you think the kids will all run away. But no, they don’t. They’re that far gone. The young man tells one of the girls to kill the Alexandria children, then he and the others attack Michonne. One slices her belly. She’s weeping as she fights them. The camera cleverly cuts to the modern day storyline, where Michonne is lopping her way through a herd of zombies to find Judith, sparing the audience from the brutality of the scene.

When it’s over, only the one girl is left standing. Michonne just had to kill all these kids. No wonder she’s gone cold. She pleads with the girl not to kill Judith and the others, and finally the girl relents and runs off. Judith is safe, but Michonne is broken. She’s already been through so much, and now to be betrayed by a friend and forced to kill kids . . . dear god, it’s so much worse than anything I had imagined leading up to this episode.

In the modern day storyline she finally tells Judith what happened, assuming she had forgotten or blocked out the memory. But Judith remembered. They have a great talk. Judith says that if we’re supposed to protect the ones we love, then when did we stop loving Daryl or Carol or all their other friends?

And Michonne finally breaks again, shedding that armor she built up to keep everyone safe, letting go. Realizing that Judith is right, that they can’t just protect Alexandria, they need to protect everyone they love.

Just in time for the Whisperers.

Verdict

I do see why they did all of this the way they did, making us wonder what happened and building this mystery, but I still disagree with it. Or, at the very least, I disagree with how they withheld this information for so long. This should have been the midseason premiere. Obviously, some details would have to be reworked, but imagine if episode 9 had opened with this crazy episode. I suspect ratings would have been much higher going into 9B.

Last week’s episode and this one have both been much better than the three that came before, and it’s really a shame they couldn’t craft the second half of the season to flow better. If I had a chance to go in and fiddle with stuff, here’s what I would have done differently:

That’s a rough sketch, obviously, but I feel like they’re giving away some mysteries too quickly and letting others drag on too long. We need balance! This show is so completely uneven it’s just crazy. The good episodes have been so good, but the filler is just too much.

What did you think? Let me know on Facebook or Twitter, and thanks for reading!

The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 14 Recap: Michonne and …

Now PlayingWatch The AMC’s The Walking Dead Midseason Preview | ‘New Enemy’

The Walking Dead finally revealed how Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) got those X-shaped scars on their backs, and, well, it was worse than I thought it was going to be, which made for a better episode than I was expecting.

The scars were first glimpsed in the first episode after the post-Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) time jump, and they were very pointedly not explained. Characters would obliquely refer to something terrible that happened that made Michonne unwilling to welcome outsiders into Alexandria, which is the opposite of what Rick and Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Michonne herself had wanted. I knew it had to be something really traumatic, but the kind of awkward way the show teased it drawing attention to the obvious way characters weren’t talking about it, which lazily signaled “this will be important later on” primed me for an anticlimactic reveal. What could possibly be so bad that Michonne would do a 180 on the principles she’d previously been trying to convince others of? Plus the show put the story on the back burner and basically forgot about it until it was time to remember. So the way we got to the story was flawed, but the story itself was satisfying.

The episode aptly titled “Scars” was a Michonne-heavy hour that gave the show’s two post-Rick leads quality time together. But honestly? The best part of the episode was Judith (Cailey Fleming). Fleming is a really gifted child actor. While her precocious dialogue wouldn’t work for a kid outside of the heightened Walking Dead world, Fleming delivers it with confidence and fluency. It doesn’t feel beyond her. You buy that she’s a kid who can talk to adults, probably because as a high-level child actor, she is. Her competence is a welcome change from the traditionally subpar acting from The Walking Dead’s youth corps.

The Walking Dead’s Ryan Hurst Breaks Down Beta’s Imposing Arrival

“Scars” flipped back and forth between timelines, one in the show’s present and one shortly after Rick disappeared, when Michonne was pregnant with R.J. The two stories paralleled each other, and we saw how Michonne became the way she was and how she got over it (we had been seeing the middle of Michonne’s story all season). And Michonne closing off her heart and her community made sense after we saw why.

Michonne was terribly lonely after Rick died or disappeared (she’s not sure which), and then, miraculously, an old friend from college named Jocelyn (guest star Rutina Wesley) showed up at Alexandria’s gates needing help. Jocelyn was the sole adult leading a group of kids, and Alexandria welcomed them all in. Michonne was thrilled to have someone she loved and who knew her knew her as she used to be back in her life, and the kids fit right in at Alexandria. But after a few days, Michonne went to pick up Judith from Jocelyn’s house to find this woman she thought was her friend had raided the pantry and infirmary, killed a sentry, and worst of all, absconded with Alexandria’s children. So Michonne and Daryl set out after her.

They found her and her child soldiers hiding out in an old schoolhouse. One of the kids shot Daryl in the shoulder with an arrow while another knocked Michonne out. She woke up to find herself and Daryl bound and gagged while one of the kids heated up a cattle brand. Jocelyn explained her warped version of “the children are our future,” and then Daryl and Michonne were branded, which explains the scars. Eventually they got free, and Michonne ended up killing Jocelyn and all the kids. She didn’t want to, but they were trying to stab her in her pregnant belly. I liked how the show paralleled Michonne taking out walkers in the present while saving Judith in a way that reminded her of that day in the past so that we didn’t have to see her massacring a bunch of kids. So yeah, Michonne had to do horrible things to keep her people safe, and the thing that made her unwilling to let outsiders in was pretty much the worst thing that could possibly have happened. I get why Michonne closed Alexandria now.

But Judith managed to convince her to change her mind. Judith was mad at Michonne for not allowing Daryl, Henry (Matt Lintz), and Connie (Lauren Ridloff) to stay, since Lydia (Cassady McClincy) was with them. Judith wants to help friends in need, and and so she snuck out to go bring them back. Michonne got a hard truth from Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), of all people, who told her that Judith wants to abide by the principles Carl explained in his deathbed letter to her, and that it’s because she’s Michonne’s daughter that she has her own ideas about how things should be. Michonne has raised her to be an independent thinker, you know?

Eventually she caught up to Judith, and after saving her from some walkers, she told her about that day, including the part about how Judith seemed like she didn’t recognize her when she found her. To her surprise, Judith remembered. “You didn’t look like you because of the blood,” Judith said. “Then I saw it was you and I was happy you found me.” She remembered all of it. And she understood why her mother didn’t want to help people, she just didn’t agree. “Loving someone means doing whatever it takes to keep them safe, right?” she said. “But when did we stop loving Daryl, and Maggie, Carol, the King?”

Later, over Carl’s grave, Michonne delivered a moving monologue. “Your father and I dug this together,” she said. “And that day, standing right here, I made a promise to never bury another child again. But then your father was gone, and I was lost. And then you were lost. And I was scared. More scared than I have ever been. Before or since. And I wasn’t the only one, so we decided to make this place only about the people who lived here. And that’s not what Carl or your dad gave their lives to create, but it kept you and R.J. safe. That’s what I wanted. That is all I wanted. You were right. We have to protect the people we love. All the people we love. And we will.”

So they went out in a minivan that had been converted into a horse-drawn cart by cutting the top off of it and picked up their friends and set out for the Kingdom. Unfortunately, the Kingdom and its fair have been discovered by the Whisperers, which will surely create problems in the last two episodes of the season.

The episode furthered the theme of schism and reunification that has animated Season 9. Throughout the season, The Walking Dead has implicitly asked, “What do we owe our friends and neighbors?” And in “Scars,” it answered it: aid in times of need.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC. Previous seasons are available to stream on Netflix.

Zombie

Andetto

Undead

Zombie

Zombie (Japanese: Andetto, “Undead”) is a Type of monster representing undead beings, including mummies, skeletons, vampires and ghosts. Initially, their focus was on swarming the field from the Graveyard with cards such as “Mezuki”, “Zombie Master”, and “Book of Life”. Since most Zombie monsters have low DEF (frequently 0), many high-Level Zombie monsters could be Summoned with “Pyramid Turtle”. According to Bandit Keith this represents how the undead have no intelligence to understand how to defend themselves; all they know is how to attack. In the real game, however, with the release of “Plaguespreader Zombie”, one of the first Tuner monsters that could Special Summon themself and several Synchro Monsters that required “Plaguespreader” as Synchro Material, Zombies began to focus on Synchro Summoning, culminating in the “Shiranui” archetype in Breakers of Shadow and further supported in Hidden Summoners with the Mayakashi archetype.

Zombies also have two of their own Structure Decks: Zombie Madness and Undead World/Zombie World.

Zombie archetypes and series include “Burning Skull”, “Vendread”, “Vampire”, “Wight”, “Ghostrick”, “Shiranui”, Mayakashi, Ghost Girl and “Dark Mummy”.

There are also several Zombie counterparts of other cards, notably “Revived King Ha Des”, “Doomkaiser Dragon”, and “Archfiend Zombie-Skull”. A common theme among Zombie counterparts is that they have the same stats as the original monster (in the case of “Dark Ruler”, even having a similar effect tailored to suit the monster’s new Type).

Most early Zombie Synchros need “Plaguespreader Zombie” as their Tuner. With the release of Generation Force, “Pain Painter” can be used as a substitute for “Plaguespreader Zombie”, and can sometimes be more powerful.

Also released in Generation Force was “Blue-Blooded Oni”, which goes hand-in-hand with “Red-Blooded Oni” from Galactic Overlord. These two monsters work with Xyz Monsters, detaching Xyz Material from Xyz Monsters both you and your opponent controls when they are Summoned. Based on their own effects, they could be run as a pair in any deck by themselves if the focus is Xyz Monsters.

“Number 22: Zombiestein” was the first Zombie Xyz Monster to be released in the OCG. It packs a large ATK, 4500, the largest original ATK of all Zombies, and currently the strongest member of the very large “Number” archetype in terms of ATK value. However, it is also a Nomi monster, unable to be Summoned other ways aside from Xyz Summon, so it cannot be easily revived like all the other Zombies.

As mentioned at the beginning, in the OCG Zombies are called simply Undead, although close examination shows that it is actually spelled as Undeat. This probably resulted from staff from Konami mistakenly printing instead of on every Zombie card in Vol.1, and was settled as so when “Undeat Warrior” was later released in Vol.2.

In the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Falsebound Kingdom, Zombies are treated as Fiend monsters.

Striker Zombies, while not too notable, have enjoyed some recent success in Japan. Being one of the only Zombie decks to not run a mill engine, they rely greatly on their search power to make plays. The deck was first seen at top 32 YCS Orlando 2011 and was run by Blake Brown.

Depending on the type of Deck its strength can vary, but the overall power of a Zombie Deck remains: its ability to quickly swarm the field with monsters (it is not uncommon to clog up one’s entire Monster Cards zone in one turn) and gaining quite powerful draw power through “Allure of Darkness” and/or “Shutendoji”.

Excluding the Zombie Mill variant, however, a Zombie Deck has some weaknesses. The most notable weakness of the Deck is its dependence on the Graveyard. While the extreme swarming capabilities of the Deck can overcome the aforementioned lack of sheer power, cards like “Macro Cosmos”, “Dimensional Fissure”, “D.D. Crow”, and nearly every other card that can banish monsters or lock the Graveyard can effectively put a Zombie player at a severe disadvantage, if not outright disrupt one’s strategy and cause the loss of a duel. “Burial from a Different Dimension” and “Imperial Iron Wall” can help to partially solve the problem (though the latter keeps “Plaguespreader Zombie” in the game, it makes “Mezuki” and “Book of Life” completely useless). In other words, the banish Deck can be the worst enemy for zombies because the cards that target the Graveyard are totally useless. But the Zombie Deck has another weakness in cards like “The End of Anubis” that disable your Graveyard, or cards like “Vanity’s Fiend” that don’t allow you to perform Special Summons.

“Banish” oriented decks and “Gravekeeper’s” decks stand as direct opposition of what Zombie decks stand for. “Necrovalley” is an extremely devastating card that can put any deck at a disadvantage, but none more so than Zombies; it essentially puts the Graveyard off limits (as well as making “Mezuki” useless in the Graveyard).

Another weakness is the fact that Zombies tend to have low ATK power for their level, compared to other Types (Examples include “Il Blud” and “Vampire Lord”). This can severely hamper a Zombie Deck player if his/her opponent uses high DEF monsters to stall the game. There are a few cards that can help counteract this problem, most notably “Burden of the Mighty”, “Solidarity” and “Pyramid of Wonders”. The final, “Temple of the Sun”, is a slightly more situational card that still would sit rather well in a Deck focused on Graveyard power.

The “Card of Safe Return” being Forbidden continues to take away a major draw force in Zombie Decks.

Zombie Decks got a boost from the release of the Xyz Monsters in the TCG, this is because of the great number of level four Zombies such as “Goblin Zombie” and “Zombie Master”. However, the effect of “Goblin Zombie” will not activate when it is detached, because Xyz Material are not considered as being in play. Along with new support such as “Blue-Blooded Oni” and the like, players can pull off some good combos for the Type.

Vampires are a supernatural species of sentient reanimated corpses that drink blood to survive and maintain their powers. They were originally humans or other living beings converted into a vampire by a “maker.” Being technically deceased, their primary characteristics include a lack of a heartbeat, body heat, brainwaves, electrical impulses, need to breathe, and other bodily functions. They are often referred to as “immortal,” but it is frequently pointed out that all vampires meet the true death eventually, through one means or another.

On the HBO original series True Blood, due to the creation of synthetic blood (Tru Blood), vampires have revealed themselves to the global population. As vampires are able to sustain themselves on synthetic blood instead of human blood, vampire representatives have assured the human population that vampires are no longer a threat to humanity. Vampires interact peacefully with humans and have largely succeeded in integrating themselves into human society. They retain their own laws and traditions, although the two communities come closer and closer together as the series progresses.

Reactions to vampires vary greatly. In parts of the world like Latin America and Iran, they are hunted and persecuted relentlessly. This caused many of them to flee for their safety to more tolerant countries, such as the United States. They are considered legal citizens within the United States, albeit with limited rights and tolerance. The vampire community, along with their sympathizers, continues to fight for equal vampire rights. On the other hand, many anti-vampire groups fight to deny them their rights or even advocate their extermination.

Lilith, the first vampire ever

It is unknown exactly when vampires were created. According to the Vampire Bible, God created the first vampire, Lilith, followed by the creation of the first humans, Adam and Eve. They were said to have been created as sustenance for Lilith, but the truth of this statement is unknown. Members of human religious groups, such as the Fellowship of the Sun, have their own theories of the first vampire, including Jesus (who rose from the dead), Lazarus (who also rose from the dead), and Cain (the son of Adam and Eve, who committed the first murder).However, most humans from among the right-wing Christians believe that vampires were created by the Devil and that they have no souls. A common theory among vampires is that they “evolved” from humans.

Bill Compton has stated that, many centuries ago, vampires created many of the vampire myths themselves in order to protect themselves. For instance, since it was believed that vampires could not be seen in the mirror, a vampire could prove that they weren’t a vampire by appearing in a mirror. Other myths include holy water, holy grounds (i.e. religious buildings and establishments), crucifixes, and photography (i.e. it is possible to take a photograph of a vampire), which have no actual effect on vampires. Vampires have fed off of other sentient beings (mainly humans), since their creation, but managed to cloak their existence, most likely through glamouring, and their secretive society.

In 1610, a powerful witch named Antonia Gaviln de Logroo cast a spell that summoned all vampires within a 20 mile radius to expose themselves to sunlight. This caused a number of vampires to die and caused vampires to be very fearful of necromancy.

In 2006, vampires revealed their existence to humans in an event referred to as “the Great Revelation”, “coming out of the coffin” and “mainstreaming”. During the revelation, vampires began claiming that vampirism did not indicate rising from the dead, but that it was a disease which makes vampires allergic to sunlight and alters their dietary needs.

By this time the vampire population is in the millions and still rising.

In 2008, vampire Stan Baker, along with other vampires under his command, orchestrated the murder of Reverend Theodore Newlin, his wife, and his daughter. Newlin was the head of The Fellowship of the Sun, a political anti-vampire church. He was succeeded by his son, Steve Newlin, who continued his father’s work.

In 2010, vampireRussell Edgington ripped out the spine of TBBN newscaster Jerry McCafferty on live television, which increased prejudice and hate crimes towards vampires. In addition, Russell became the poster boy of the Sanguinista movement, sparking more conflict between humans and vampires.

In 2011, 400 years after the death of Antonia Gaviln de Logroo, a witch named Marnie Stonebrook summoned her spirit. Antonia used Marnie as a host to control her, and cast the same spell she cast in 1610. However, as the vampires had been warned of her intentions, only one vampire perished. Marnie mentions vampires being politically powerful throughout the centuries, writing propaganda on witches and exaggerating many of their myths.

Willa Burrell being made vampire by Eric.

In order to create a vampire, a human must be drained of their blood by a vampire and the blood lost needs to be replaced by some of the vampire’s blood. The vampire and human must then sleep in the ground (this is presumably the point where they technically die) until the newborn rises as a vampire the following night. The newborn and the maker will subsequently have a maker-progeny bond, unless the maker deserts or releases their progeny.

Newborn vampires will be thirsty and will need to feed to survive. Although newborns have some control of their abilities, they are mostly controlled by their impulses and can cause serious harm and accidental deaths to humans around them. In addition, newborns cannot resist blood at all, as resistance develops with age.

A newborn’s existence depends upon their abilities, which are taught to them by their maker. These abilities take time to learn and develop. As vampires age, they become more adept at controlling their abilities. According to Bill Compton, two-thirds of newborns die during their first year without the guidance of their makers.

Godric about to become the maker of Eric

A maker has a deep connection with his or her progeny, something that humans cannot fully understand or experience. During the transformation from human to vampire, the maker and soon-to-be progeny “share their essence” whilst buried in the ground, a supernatural process that not even vampires understand.

Maker-progeny relationships vary between individuals. Vampires Rosalyn Harris and Bill Compton treat their progeny like humans treat children, and have an exclusively parental relationship. On the other hand, vampires Lorena Krasiki and Russell Edgington create progeny to prolong romantic and sexual relationships, and have spousal relationships with their progeny.

Bill teach his progeny Jessica how to live the Tru Blood.

Most vampires do not take becoming a maker lightly, as evidenced by Eric Northman, who has only produced two progeny in a millennia, and Bill Compton, who has produced one in 175 years. However, Pamela Swynford de Beaufort has admitted to creating a progeny out of curiosity, and Rosalyn Harris has created 204 progeny in 211 years. Eddie’s maker turned him for the asking, though he did not take his responsibilities as a maker seriously and left Eddie to fend for himself.

A progeny may turn a vampire and become a maker themselves while still under the influence of their own maker. The grandparent/grandmaker has no control over the grandchild/grandprogeny.

A maker has a certain amount of control over their progeny due to the maker-progeny bond.

Vampires preparing to feed on a human

Vampires are indistinguishable from humans, and appear as they did when they were turned, albeit with a paler complexion due to lack of blood flow. Also, they have fangs that usually extend and retract willingly, though they can be stimulated to unwillingly extend. Some other vampires’ eyes also turn red, such as Liam McKnight, as he demonstrated that he can change his eye color into blood-red.

Vampires remain identical forever after they are turned. Due to this, vampires cannot lose or gain weight (as explained by Eddie Gauthier, who said that, due to lack of exercise and a bad diet as a human, he remained overweight as a vampire) (“I Don’t Wanna Know”), or change their body in any way (for instance, Jessica Hamby was a virgin when she was turned, and, after having sex, her hymen grew back). They are supposed to “sleep” during the day, which means that they will be essentially dead until they are active again. Eric says “We’re supposed to be dead during the day,” and the sign on the door of Fantasia during daylight hours humorously reads “Sorry, we’re dead.”

Vampires can presumably grow hair, as Eric Northman cuts his hair, Lorena Krasiki’s hair is shown to vary in length, and Franklin Mott states that he shaves.

Vampires are recognizable from their fangs, which are located behind the maxillary lateral incisors (as opposed to the canines, as per vampire mythology). Fangs can be extended and retracted by choice, and are controlled by the movements of certain facial muscles. However, fangs protrude automatically when vampires are feeding, angry, excited, sexually aroused (colloquially referred to as a “fang boner”), need to fight, or see blood. Fangs can also be removed, but grow back after three months. Without fangs, vampires cannot feed on live victims unless the victim is already wounded.

Due to the lack of blood flow, vampires do not have any bodily functions. Because of this, vampires do not produce waste, and are unable to become pregnant, impregnate female humans or supernatural creatures, and have lower body temperatures than humans.

Vampires have anatomically different tear ducts from humans, as they expel blood, not tears (blood is the only fluid that their bodies can produce.)

Although vampires do not need to breathe, most still do out of habit, to aid in speaking, and for a sense of smell.

Pam teaches Tara how to feed without killing

Vampires are reliant on human blood or synthetic blood, as they cannot ingest normal food or drinks, nor supernatural blood (with the exception of faeries). The blood of near-human creatures like werewolves or shifters can also sustain them.

Synthetic blood is comprised of a varied cellular content, and comes in flavors (blood types) such as O, A, B and AB, in both positive and negative varieties. Although Tru Blood can sustain a vampire nutritionally, it does not satisfy the vampire’s cravings. Because of this, many vampires opt to drink human blood. Allegedly, virgin and baby blood taste the best, and faerie blood is expressly sought out by vampires, being referred to as “catnip for vampires”.

Most vampires prefer certain blood types (e.g. AB positive, B negative, etc.) but any blood type can sustain them.

If a vampire abstains from drinking blood, they will experience the “bleeds”, during which the vampire will begin to bleed from their ears and nose. Lack of feeding also severely weakens them. In addition, vampires experience the bleeds if they do not sleep during the day. The bleeds stop when the vampire feeds or sleeps, depending on what caused the bleeds in the first place. If a vampire experiences the bleeds long enough, they will perish.

While vampires are unable to hold in anything but blood, they can experience joy in smoking cigars and cigarettes. Since their bodies heal any damage rapidly, smoking will not have any lasting effect on a vampire.

A vampire that has been incapacitated without the ability to feed will henceforth continue living, albeit in great constant suffering due to the lack of sustenance, and will eventually perish.

Vampire blood, or “V”, is the life essence of vampires.

It is illegal to hold or ingest vampire blood due to its drug qualities, and, since the Great Revelation, there has been a growing black market for vampire blood. Some vampires are kidnapped by “Drainers,” people who capture vampires and farm them for their blood. When a drainer has taken all the blood he/she can from a captured vampire or has no further use for them, they often kill their victim. Vampire blood is sold for $200$600 per 1/4-ounce, and is ingested in small amounts (1-2 drops). If the blood is not fresh, it can be cut with aspirin to prevent it from coagulating, and to extend the high.

Vampire blood has the following effects on humans and supernatural creatures:

In addition, if a human ingests an excess amount of vampire blood (i.e. more than 1-2 drops), the effects may persist longer than intended. For instance, after he drank a vial of vampire blood, Jason Stackhouse experienced sweating, exhaustion, and a persistent erection (which caused priapism), resulting in Tara Thornton taking him to the hospital.

Vampires are naturally predatory creatures, and are often far more violent and savage than their human appearance suggests. Although they can control themselves in a sophisticated and human-like manner, duress reduces them to a more feral state. For instance, threats or insults are met with hissing, growling, and baring their fangs.

Vampires are capable of human emotions, such as compassion, love, and self-control. However, vampire emotions are not as intense as human emotions, perhaps because of their infinite lifespans(Pam remarked that vampires learn to let go of cumbersome emotions because they will have to carry them for so much longer than a human would). Vampires also have a tendency to slip into nihilism and discard their sense of morality, especially in their younger years. Such moral bankruptcy is exhibited by Queen Sophie-Anne, Salome Agrippa, Russel Edgington and even Godric, in his early years. However, they are able to experience more powerful and diverse sensations than humans (although they cannot feel the sensation of coldness). Despite having themselves been humans originally, some vampires believe that their advanced senses to justify their brutality towards their prey; they consider themselves higher beings, entitled to do what they please with “lesser creatures.” Not all vampires endorse this philosophy. Some vampires justify their actions by arguing “It’s our nature.” Some, such as Russel Edgington, don’t bother to justify their actions at all and do as they please because they can. Others, such as James Kent, choose to remain peaceful and nonviolent even from an early age.

Despite their vicious and bloodthirsty nature, vampires appear to become more civilized with age, exhibiting greater emotional capacity and understanding of humans and other supernatural creatures. Age is often accompanied by personal evolution and a more sophisticated demeanor. For instance, Godric, who lived for +2,000 years, evolved from a brutal and savage vampire who believed humans were inferior to a wise, repentant, peaceful vampire who, shortly before choosing to end his life, stated that he believed co-existence between humans and vampires was possible. Additionally, Roman Zimojic stated that, when he was a young vampire, he was governed by bloodlust and impulses, but later evolved into a more decent being as he grew older.

However, age does not always bring this development. When +3,000 year old vampire Russell Edgington lost his progeny/husband of 700 years, Talbot Angelis, he began a murderous rampage that eventually ended in his death. Macklyn Warlow, who is older than both Russell and Godric, when faced with the prospect of Sookie going back on her word, threw a child-like temper tantrum, endangering the lives of Sookie and her friends, and his actions ultimately led to his demise. All vampires struggle to control their darker side, but, in many cases, their decency does prevail.

Vampires do not physically age, retaining their appearance after being turned. The only noticeable effects of aging are that they become physically stronger with age, and more vulnerable to sunlight. This leads many to call them “immortal” though this is not the case; they are still susceptible to death and do not live forever.

The supernatural forces that sustain them beyond mortal death also endow them with immunity to aging, heightened senses, and superhuman abilities which make them physically superior to humans.

Vampires have a number of weaknesses, which range from irritating to fatal (it should be noted that the death of a vampire is referred to as the “true death”).

Franklin after being staked.

Vampires can achieve a temporary invulnerability to at least some of their weaknesses consuming the blood of a Faerie. These enhancements last much longer, if they ingest the blood of a faerie-vampire hybrid.

Depending on the amount of blood consumed, vampires grow immune to their weakness to sunlight after drinking fairy blood. The effects last shortly, however, and the pureness of the blood is a factor too; after drinking a hybrid’s blood, Russell Edgington burned in the sun quite shortly afterwards (though the blood did prevent him from bursting into blue flames like Godric), while Eric Northman spent at least an hour in the sun after completely draining a full-blooded faerie.

Delayed true death of Russell.

Russell Edgington has been shown to be able to resist for a short time at the stakeout after drinking the blood of Fairy. At first his wounds begin to expel a bright light, because of the blood Faerie, shocking everyone including Russell, who thinks the fairy blood would allow him to survive. However, in light of the fairies expulsion from him soon wears off and proceed to decompose and implodes meeting the true death. It is further to be doubted that Faerie blood renders a vampire immune to staking when even Warlow, a vampire over 2,600 years older and Faerie-vampire was not able to resist the staking.

Also, when a vampire has drunk the blood of a fairy, become immune to the magic of the fairies including photokinesis and are able to see them when transmitting invisible.

Blood of a Faerie-vampire will allow a vampire to walk the sun indefinitely. The effect of faerie-vampire blood disappears immediately upon the death of the source, regardless of distance. It is marked both by a tremor and a visible light expulsion effect, when it occurs.

Vampires have their own governmental system.

Within vampire communities, most vampires live in harmony, and racism and homophobia are virtually non-existent.

Some humans display bigoted and racist attitudes towards vampires due to fear and/or prejudice. Others support the Vampire Rights Amendment (which campaigns for equal rights between humans and vampires).

Nan Flanagan on TBBN as a representative of AVL.

Since the Great Revelation, vampires have been trying to influence human politics through organizations such as the American Vampire League, in order to campaign for equal rights, such as vampire-human marriage.

The festival of tolerance, an event pro-vampire.

Vampires have been shown to be tolerated by the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, and the majority of MED countries. However, vampires are hunted in the majority of Islamic and South American countries, and most African countries refuse to acknowledge the existence of vampires.

Vampires maintain differing opinions concerning humans. The Authority and the American Vampire League aim for mainstreaming. While some vampires agree that humans and vampires should be equals, others believe that they are above humans. “Mainstreamers” is the name for vampires that support equality and peaceful interaction between the two races. The Sanguinista movement is opposed to mainstreaming and supports the belief that vampires should dominate humans.

Nonetheless, in many cases, vampires engage in relationships with humans, in which vampires claim a human as who wants protection, or whom they care about. The human sustains the vampire in return. The vampire identifies the human as “theirs”, and this claim forbids other vampires from harming the human. A vampire can only claim one human, and a human cannot be claimed by multiple vampires at the same time. Some vampires also engage with humans in relationships that are indistinguishable from those held between humans, such as marriage or romantic relationships. This sort of relationship is a recent development, and has only come into existence after the end of the Great Revelation. Vampire groupies, or people who have sex with and are willingly fed upon by vampires, are referred to as “fang bangers”, which is viewed as a derogatory term used by humans.

Since the Great Revelation, vampires have moved to take their place in human society. They hold all sorts of jobs and pay taxes. Human law does protect vampires, but they do not yet have full rights. American pro-vampire lobbyists strive to get the Vampire Rights Amendment(VRA) passed by the government. This would grant vampires full rights as American citizens. It is later mentioned that the VRA did not pass, due to the influence of Governor Truman Burrell

Vampires dislike shapeshifters and werewolves. They are accepting of practicing witches, but do not tolerate necromancy, as this is a possible threat to them. They do the best they can to stamp out necromancy whenever possible. Vampires find faeries irresistible because the smell of their blood is extremely enticing to them.

The majority of Vampires does not know about the existence of Maenads. This is shown when neither Bill nor Eric knew what Maryann Forrester was and had to seek Queen Sophie Anne`s assistance. Sophie Anne only knew about Maenads due to a book she had. It can be assumed that Vampires are not too fond of Maenads as their black blood is poisonous.

A vampire who has broken the law.

Vampires live according to the laws of the Authority. Magisters, kings and queens however, can declare edicts and create new laws. Laws among vampires include:

Vampires also have laws regarding humans. These are recognized by human systems, but are sometimes ignored due to anti-vampire prejudice. These Laws include.

Punishments, due to violations, are administered by the Authority, Magisters, kings, queens or sheriffs, depending on the seriousness of the crime. There are set punishments for crimes, but a Magister can change the punishment if they wish. For instance, when Bill Compton killed Longshadow, the set punishment was five years in a coffin encased with silver. However, as the Magister was intrigued by the case (as Bill killed in order to protect Sookie Stackhouse, a presumed human), he decided that Bill had to create another vampire, Jessica Hamby, to replace the vampire he killed.

A Faerie-vampire is a combination of a vampire and a faerie which has both traits and also have both abilities. These type of hybrid are created when a faerie is turned into a vampire. They will become a hybrid with the unified powers of both faeries and vampires, making them possibly one of the most powerful supernatural species on the show.

Infected Vampires is the term that the writers have used to describe the vampires who have survived being infected with Hepatitis V. In addition to having some physical characteristics slightly different from normal vampires, vampires infected have a greater thirst for blood and their attitude is more animalistic than other vampires.
