I started Wherever I Look back in 2011 and have aimed to be that friend who loves watching various forms of media and talking about it. So, from bias, strong opinions, and a perspective you may not have thought about, you'll find that in our reviews.

Brien Allen is the last of the original crazy people who responded to this nutjob on Facebook wanting to start an online blog prior to Twin Peaks S3. Some of his other favorite shows have been Vr.5, Buffy, Lost, Stargate: Universe, The OA, and Counterpart. He's an OG BBSer, Trekkie, Blue Blaze Irregular, and former semi-professional improviser. He is also a staunch defender of putting two spaces after a period, but has been told to shut up and color.
Back at their Cittàgazze home base, Will is soaking his wounds in the bath when Lyra comes to bring him towels, walking backwards up the stairs. Adorably, Pan is also going backwards. She tells him what the alethiometer told her about his destiny, and is clearly worried that now he will have his own agenda. However, Will reaffirms his intent to help Lyra get the alethiometer back, and you can tell she is pleased.
From above, the buildings look like these big white tetris pieces just scattered among the rolling hills. Hills that have been carved up to make space for all this new construction. This is the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center and in this unlikely landscape New Reno is springing to life.
And a steady stream of semi-trucks rolls through the park, pulling into the warehouse loading docks to drop off and pick up the online purchases of millions of Americans. You know that big screen TV you ordered from the comfort of your couch after drinking a little too much wine? Or the cute shoes you bought on impulse? Or the flowers you sent your mom? They may have come through one of these warehouses.
Back in 2014, states across the country were trying to woo Tesla with huge tax incentives. It was all part of a familiar dance, states and cities launching elaborate campaigns to attract big tech companies with tax incentives and land deals. In other places, those enticements have sparked their own backlash, like when New Yorkers rose up to scuttle a $3 billion deal to bring in an Amazon headquarters.
Forklifts loaded with trays of hundreds of battery cells are screaming past us. Some have forklifts drivers, others are autonomous vehicles, using cameras and sensors to guide the hulking crafts. I find myself thinking maybe those are the real jobs of the future.
Rick and Hershel engage in a religious debate, with Rick admitting that he has lost his faith and Hershel trying to convince him that God must have had a hand in both him and Carl surviving life-threatening injuries. Meanwhile, the rest of the group debate how to retrieve the walker from the well. They agree that shooting it would be a bad idea as it would contaminate the water supply, and realizing that they will need live bait to draw it out they formulate a plan to send Glenn down the well to secure a rope around it so it can be pulled out of the water. The group begin to lower Glenn into the well, but the plan quickly goes wrong when the pump that the rope is fastened around breaks, putting him within reach of the walker. After a tense moment, however, the group is able to pull him back up, and Glenn reveals that he was successful in securing a rope around the walker.
Meanwhile, Daryl finds an abandoned house in the woods, with food that has been recently consumed and a makeshift bed inside a closet big enough for a child; however, Sophia is still nowhere to be found. At the farm, the group attempts to pull the walker from the well, but in its bloated state it rips in half, sending the bottom half of the body and most of the innards back into the well. Disgusted, T-Dog destroys the brain with a pick-ax. Shane and Andrea go to the highway to find Carol, who is waiting there in the hopes that Sophia will return. As they search for a place to have potential target practice, Shane tells Andrea that using a gun is about trusting your instincts and that there's nothing easy about taking another person's life, making it clear that what happened with Otis is weighing heavily on his conscience.
When they arrive at the pharmacy, Glenn gives Maggie the list of items, claiming that he is going to have a look around as he heads to the feminine hygiene section to get Lori's request, which is revealed to be a pregnancy test. When Maggie comes looking for him, he hastily stuffs it into his bag and grabs a random box to cover himself, belatedly realizing that he has picked up a box of condoms. After watching him squirm for a few minutes, Maggie offers to have sex with him, taking off her shirt as a bewildered Glenn follows suit. Meanwhile, Rick asks Hershel to reconsider letting the group stay at the farm, which the older man reluctantly agrees to do so long as they abide by his rules.
As they return to the farm, Maggie tells Glenn that their encounter in the pharmacy was a one-time thing. Glenn gives Lori the pregnancy test away from the others, and she quickly hides it in her jeans. Daryl also returns from his search, and goes to the RV to present Carol with a single white flower inside a beer bottle. He tells her that the flower is a Cherokee rose, a symbol of hope said to have bloomed from the tears of the Cherokee mothers who lost their children, and says that he believes this one bloomed for Sophia. Rick sits at Carl's bedside as his son wakes up, and gives him his Deputy's hat to symbolize their shared experience when Carl points out they have both been shot. As night falls, Lori sneaks away to find a secluded spot in which to take the pregnancy test, and breaks down when it comes back positive.Tropes: The Bait: Glenn gets sent down the well to try and lure the trapped walker out.
