Tonight's The Walking Dead opener for the second half of season 4 titled "After" was directed by Special Makeup Effects master Greg Nicotero. It featured a smaller cast focusing mostly on the deteriorating state of Rick and Carl's relationship. There was also a fair amount of zombie action, with Carl corralling a group of walkers and Michonne taking care of some walker action herself.
The biggest piece of nerd joy came in the form of a quick cameo by none other than zombie Jack Goodman from An American Werewolf in London. Obviously not Rick Bakers original, but fun to see Mr. Nicotero throwing in a little something for the hard core horror fans. With "Easter Eggs" like that, I am going to need to pay closer attention to future episodes.
