So I recently watched The Conjuring and one of the supernatural elements I really enjoyed about it was the story about Annabelle. So I thought I'd talk about that one for a little bit.
So to start off with, Annabelle is actually a Raggity Ann doll. She was given to a nurse as a birthday gift. Well this nurse, Donna, and her roommates started noticing that there was something strange about the doll. They put it in one room and then find it in another. They later started experimenting with it by putting the doll in a unique position and then leave for the day. When they came back she would be in a completely different position. They started to get curious so they hired a medium to come in, thinking the doll was possessed.
The medium told them that the spirit of a girl named Annabelle died on the land that the apartment was built on and just wanted to be friends. The roommates were sad to hear that so they decided that Annabelle could stay. Big mistake. All kinds of crazy shit started happening. Annabelle would leave notes for the roommates, she started bleeding at one point, and then she tried to kill Lou (the only roommate that wanted Annabelle gone.
After that the roommates spoke to Ed and Lorraine Warren about this haunting. The Warrens are sometimes referred to as the original Ghost Hunters. They travel everywhere investigating the paranormal. After the interview The Warrens had bad news for the roommates. It wasn't a ghost haunting them...in fact there was no Annabelle to begin with. It was a demon trying to find it's way into their lives and when they gave it permission to stay, the demon was able to do whatever it wanted. It's goal was to possess one of them and it most likely would end up with one or all of the roommates dead. The Warrens had a priest exorcise the doll and that was that. But the Warrens felt that the doll was still unsafe so, with the roommates' permission, they took the doll away and kept it in their home along with other cursed objects.
What have I been saying this whole time? JUST BECAUSE IT SAYS ITS A LITTLE GIRL LOOKING FOR FRIENDS, DOESN'T MEAN ITS TRUE!!
Here's a Video

OK, So Glenn and Tara are travelling with Abraham and his friends and he's very insistent that they stay together. Michonne opens up to Carl about her life before the Apocalypse while poor Rick is trying to avoid detection from bandits who broke into the house they're staying at.
Let's start with Glenn and Tara. They are riding in a truck with Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita who have their own quest. During the trip Tara has been keeping track of turns and landmarks so when Glenn wakes up she can lead him back to the buss where they think Maggie might be. When Glenn does wake up he throws a fit and wants to turn back and find Maggie. Abraham tries to change his mind by telling him his cause is more important than finding Maggie. According to Abraham, Eugene is a doctor who know how the whole Apocalypse happened and wants to travel to Washington DC to see if he can help find a solution.
Frankly my dear, Glenn doesn't give a rat's ass. After wrestling with each other and fighting zombies together, Glenn still takes off in his quest to find Maggie. The rest of the group follows because Eugene, being the genius that he is, shot the truck up and killed it. So everyone decides, "ok let's follow the Korean. what else are we going to do". I have to say I don't trust Eugene...I just don't.
Moving on to Michonne, Rick and Carl. Michonne and Carl have a tender moment at the breakfast table talking about normal things until the conversation turned to Judith. So Michonne and Carl decide to go look for supplies while Rick stays at the house and recuperates. During their scavenger hunt Michonne tries to cheer Carl up with little success. She peaks his interests when she makes the comment that toddlers find her funny and that her son thought his was hilarious. Carl continues to pry and Michonne turns it into a game. She'll answer one question for every room but only after they clear the room. We learn that her son's name was Andre Anthony, he was her only child, and that she lost him when the Apocalypse started. As they continue to check the house she finds a child's room where a family of five was either executed or committed suicide. Very sad.
Rick, on the other hand, is trying to relax and heal his wound but then he hears some screaming down stairs and realizes that the house was broken into. Either Rick is a ninja or he's just lucky because he had to dodge one guy after another hoping to escape the house and warn Michonne and Carl before they got to the house. Obviously these morons don't know to stab the recently deceased and Rick uses that to his advantage. He kill one of the bandits in the bathroom and crack the door open so when the bandit turns zombie....SURPRISE!!! He escapes the house and lies in wait for the bandits to find their fallen zombie comrades. Once the screaming starts, Rick takes off, finds Michonne and Carl, then take off. While they walk to nowhere, they find another sign that tells them about the safe haven Terminus. They decide, "what the hell" and go.

I've heard a lot about this creature. I remember seeing an episode of "Paranormal State" where they investigated the Jersey Devil. But I gotta be honest, I've never heard of this legend before.
According to Wikipedia(ya I know...when has this site ever been legit?)
"It was said that Mother Leeds had 12 children and, after finding she was pregnant for the 13th time, stated that this one would be the Devil. In 1735, Mother Leeds was in labor on a stormy night. Gathered around her were her friends. Mother Leeds was supposedly a witch and the child's father was the Devil himself. The child was born normal, but then changed form. It changed from a normal baby to a creature with hooves, a goat's head, bat wings and a forked tail. It growled and screamed, then killed the midwife before flying up the chimney. It circled the villages and headed toward the pines. In 1740 a clergy exorcised the demon for 100 years and it wasn't seen again until 1890."
I can't really find anything other than "Devil Hunters" research. It's not like the Chupacabra (which I don't believe in) where it's been reported that it has attacked livestock. The Jersey Devil seems to be some scary story used to scare little kids. Kinda like the Boogeyman.

This episode was broken up between four different groups and at least a few of those stories overlap. So let's figure out what the hell is going on.
The episode starts with Daryl and Beth running for their lives with Beth's voice as a narrator. It sounds like a journal entry and throughout the episode we see Beth stepping up and being a survivor. While Daryl is slowly regressing to his anti-social ways, Beth chooses to believe that there has to be some survivors from the prison so she pushes Daryl to help her find the others.
Dun Dun Duh! It's Sgt. Abraham Ford! Friend or Foe? we'll see in episodes to come...
