Vladimir repeatedly asks, "Will night never come?" And it does come, rapidly, with a giant moon that ascends a blue-black sky.
THE WALKING DEAD presents a similar existential landscape, and each week the despairing characters opt to wait one more day rather than give in to their fear of a new and unnatural world.
And tonight we were presented with the silhouettes of two men against a blue-black sky, under a giant white moon. Like Beckett's Didi and Gogo, Rick and Shane have been pushed to the edge in a world they do not understand. They question meaning, and they face each other against a stark landscape in a final showdown.
Anyone else notice this parallel?
