Before you read on, watch out for the big spoilers on the end of the Bravo Dirty John series, recently released on Netflix . Because the link that exists between this series drawn from real facts and The Walking Dead is especially essential at the end of the story at its morbid resolution. As a reminder, Dirty John is a series based on podcasts by Christopher Goffard and tells the true story of Debra Newell and John Meehan. Charmer and liar, John trapped Debra on a dating site and, after masquerading as the ideal boyfriend, began revealing his manipulative and violent side.
According to the true story, Debra’s daughters were suspicious from the beginning of this strange man who settled in their mother’s life at great speed. Another important element, the series shows from the first episode that the youngest, Terra, is a fan of zombies who likes to imagine what she would do in case of apocalypse. Addicted to The Walking Dead , the young woman sees the series more as a way to learn to survive in the case of apocalypse than as entertainment. This element was of paramount importance some time after Debra was able to break with John, who obviously did not accept this decision at all. After burning Debra’s car, it’s at Terra that John went after it. And it’s thanks to The Walking Deadthat Terra, when confronted with John Meehan who attacked her with a knife, stabbed him in the eye after repeatedly knifing him in the back . The “kill or be killed” mentality and the fact that it is by striking in the head that one eliminates a zombie guided his instinct of survival. Like what to watch series can sometimes save the life.
