Norman Reedus: Reports of My Licking People Are Way out of Proportion

Originally posted 04/14/2015 10:10AM

Sure, Walking Dead star Norman Reedus copped to licking the occasional person and/or zombie on Conan last month.

That doesn't mean the actor is going around putting his tongue on just anyone.

"The licking thing, that got way blown out of proportion, I'll be honest," he told PEOPLE on Monday at the Endometriosis Foundation of America's (EFA) 7th Annual Blossom Ball in New York City. "I do lick people from time to time, and they asked me to stop licking people, but I don't lick strangers – I lick people I know."

The Walking Dead Finale Recap: Keeping the Wolves from the Door

Originally posted 03/30/2015 01:10AM

For a community trying to build a civilization, the people of Alexandria have always been myopic. Unable to truly look at the bigger picture or to focus on more than one thing at a time, they betray a nearsightedness that has cost them some of their own people while the wolves circled ever closer.

In the season finale of The Walking Dead, "Conquer," Rick (Andrew Lincoln) managed, once again, to convince people that his way is the best way. Also, Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) was the worst, yet again, and one of our main heroes was nearly killed. An old friend finally returned, and we met the villains – the wolves – who will inevitably be specifically targeting Alexandria next season.

There have been some really well-chosen songs used in this season of The Walking Dead, but there was no more apt way to open "Try" than with Nine Inch Nails' "Somewhat Damaged."

The episode began with the aftermath of Aiden's (Daniel Bonjour) death, which was partly due to his own stupidity and unwillingness to listen – a fairly common disease among the population of Alexandria. Carol (Melissa McBride) tried to make nice by leaving a tuna casserole on the Monroes' doorstep with a note that read, "We're truly sorry for your loss." Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) left the casserole and brought the note into the house to burn it, Father Gabriel's (Seth Gilliam) words from last week's episode clearly weighing on her.

In "Try," Rick (Andrew Lincoln) proved that he'll never be able to forget what happened outside of the walls of Alexandria, and Michonne (Danai Gurira) chose a side.

Alexandria could indeed be the safe haven that it appears to be; however, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) continues to refuse to entertain that idea.

"Forget" was played out by the Bee Gees' "Spicks and Specks," and the song summed up Rick's attitude about Alexandria: "Where is the sun / That shone on my head? / The sun in my life / It is dead ... Where is the girl I loved / All along? / The girl that I loved / She's gone."

At this point, nothing really matters for Rick other than maintaining the status quo – that is, simply surviving – because the sun doesn't really flicker back to life once it's been snuffed out.

In this week's episode of The Walking Dead, even Daryl (Norman Reedus) began to soften and believe in Alexandria; meanwhile, Carol (Melissa McBride) threatened a small child's life, and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) yelled in a nice lady's face because she wanted to cook her a nice meal. Business as usual.

The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus Likes to Lick People – Where Do We Sign Up? (VIDEO)

[YOUTUBE "bSElubixtiY"] Norman Reedus has a licking problem – not that there's anything wrong with that.

The Walking Dead star revealed on Tuesday's Conan that it all began when he started licking his zombie guts-covered grime castmates.

Then, his tongue went on the road – he started to post photos of himself licking "monuments" and "Charlie Chaplin guys on the street." This all culminated in an Urban Dictionary definition – to "Reedus" is now an unofficial verb meaning "to lick something."

The Walking Dead Recap: Meet Deanna Monroe

In "Remember," Glenn (Steven Yeun) said it best when he told the survivors' de facto new leader: "We need to make this work. ... We were almost out there too long."

It wasn't new information, of course, but that reality was present in every single one of Team Rick's interactions with the denizens of the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Led by Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh), their new home was almost too idyllic for any of them to trust.

"People out there are always looking for an angle," Rick (Andrew Lincoln) told Deanna. "Looking to play on your weakness. They measure you by what they can take from you." Indeed, on this week's episode of The Walking Dead, we were reminded that Team Rick is still very much the "people out there."

The Walking Dead Recap: 'My Job Is to Convince You All to Follow Me Back Home'

Originally posted 02/22/2015 10:05PM

Given how many times our heroes on The Walking Dead have been offered salvation only to encounter monsters worse than the ones from which they needed salvation in the first place, it's no surprise that they were suspicious of Aaron (Ross Marquand) and his offer of a new home for Team Rick.

Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was most distrustful, even as Michonne (Danai Gurira) urged him to reconsider, stop fighting and let it go.

In the end, Rick and the survivors made it to Alexandria – but not before Rick's overly cautious nature backfired and landed them in yet another life-threatening situation.
