LAST MAN ON EARTH Season 2 Episode 3 'Dead Man Walking': Phil pulls a gun on the group because he thought it would be the only way they would listen to his apology. How did it come down to this? Let's rewind; Phil and Carol are back together and traveling the world JUST THE TWO OF US-WILL SMITH style since Phil (also known as Tandy) was shunned from the group. The group shunned Phil due to his lying and manipulation of people and events surrounding the group, their decision making and relationships. In the beginning Phil thought he was truly the last man on earth and the only survivor of a deadly, global virus outbreak but then Phil met Carol of whom he married and divorced season one only to remarry her here in season two after she was willing to follow him once he was outcast. Now Phil and Carol have found the group again and they are both trying to figure out how they will reintroduce Phil back to the group after it ended so badly. Earlier in this episode Carol lies to the group and tells them that Phil is dead and died saving her. She lied because she thought it would make them feel sorry for him and regret they ever shunned him from the group. After the attempt to reintroduce Phil doesn't go according to plan she decides to come clean about her lie and Phil; she was convincing the group to give Phil another chance by convincing them that he had truly changed but as they were just feeling all warm and fuzzy inside about Phil coming back to the group he ran in on them with a gun only in an attempt to try to make them listen to him and his apology because he doesn't believe they will listen to him otherwise.
PHIL & CAROL: I actually do really like Phil and Carol together. Now that they are back with the group I don't know if Phil will really be able to control himself when it comes to breaking up relationships and sticking his nose where it doesn't belong. Do I believe that Phil is really sorry for what he's done in the past? Yes! Do I feel like the group is taking it too far as far as their actions towards Phil? Yes! Maybe this season the writers will bring another trouble-maker into the group giving Phil and Carol a break.
THE OTHERS: I was shocked by the lack of warm welcoming for Carol as she was one who made everyone else feel welcome upon their arrival to Tucson. Carol hadn't done anything to cause anyone to dislike her but since she's been gone and ended her brief relationship with Phil Miler #2 (Boris Kodjoe), Erica (Cleopatra Coleman) is now in a relationship with him. From the moment Carol arrived Erica was one really giving Carol the cold shoulder along with Gail (Mary Steenburgen) because Carol literally scared Gail's boyfriend and fellow survivor (played briefly by Will Ferrell) to death. Carol took the lack of warm welcoming with stride because she really wanted another chance for Phil with the group. As this episode came to an end we see them once again restraining Phil and secluding him from the group because he pulled the gun out on them. I don't know if Phil will survive in a group where there is another Phil who wants to be with his Carol. I'm team Phil Miller #1! I love a good underdog story and maybe, just maybe Phil will step it up this season and show them all how cool and mature he can be but that wouldn't be as funny now would it? -Monica/TVandPopcorn
