Wow. I was so excited about the episode of The Walking Dead tonight that I was afraid I was going to over hype it in my mind and then I would set myself up to be disappointed. Boy was I wrong. This episode delivered, in a HUGE way. I venture to say this is one of the if not the best episode to date! So let’s dive in (spoilers ahead)…
So we start out the episode right where we left off, Negan’s gang is taking Daryl’s gangs stuff. Abraham is phenomenal in this scene (and the whole episode really). The scene builds up perfectly and then BAM, it delivers. I really thought we were about to lose a couple of characters right there in the first couple minutes. ‘If you have to eat shit, it’s best to not nibble’. This scene is just so well done from the writing to the acting to the music to the effects. A huge kudos.
Then we move on to the rest of the story, it is a quick hitting episode with so many good things I really didn’t know how to begin this blog. We seen so many characters come out of their shell in this episode, many of them long overdue but it was worth the wait for the special feeling that it gave us in this episode when they all pulled together and made a stand. I feel the need to mention Carl here as well, he done a great job in this episode and it truly made the viewer feel just as it should have when ‘it’ happened to him.
Then in comes the Calvary for some serious badassness to help! The scenes, the acting, the writing, the dialogue, everything in this episode went above and beyond everything I had pictured in my head! Don’t miss this one!
