The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 8 (Mid-Season Finale)

Okay, so, the mid-season finale is over and I just wanted to do a quick blog with my thoughts. With everything that’s happened already in the season, from the Glenn fiasco to the Morgan backstory and everything else, I truly had no idea what direction they were going to go in the mid-season finale. I half expected to be introduced to Negan or a new character to move the story into a new direction for the second half of this season. That didn’t happen (unless it was on that extra scene that was during that other show that I don’t watch).

The episode was good, it was intense, a couple of my favorite scenes were when Maggie narrowly escaped the walkers, the scene where Deanna was screaming near the end. That was probably one of the more haunting scenes from The Walking Dead since it’s inception. I did enjoy the talks with Michonne and Deanna as well as the talk with Glenn and Enid. I’m very worried about Morgan and Carol and what the Wolf escaping means for the guys.

All that being said, I do have to admit this episode ended and I still didn’t feel like that big moment had happened yet. Not that that’s a bad thing necessarily, there were plenty of cliff hangers, plenty of questions unanswered and plenty to lead us into the second half. So I’m not upset, in fact, I’m quite excited to see where it goes from here! And yes, they brought back the covered in guts walking through Walkers bit! I loved it! Kudos, hats off to everyone involved in the show, great first half of the season!

The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 7

This is the episode before the mid-season finale and I was very excited to see what direction the story went for the first half of the season to lead into the second half!

Well, I guess that answers the question about Glenn. I guess it makes sense since the rumor is that Negan is on the way, so they need to save Glenn for that heartbreaking scene.  Here is my thoughts on the whole situation. The death of Glenn in the comic is so iconic that I’m afraid that is ruined now in the show, since they faked it. So here’s what I would do, if I were the writer. I would flip the script. I would put Daryl in Glenn’s place with Negan, have him kill of Daryl. That way, it will be as iconic as in the comic because Daryl is a beloved character in the show, non-existant in the comic and would have the the same shock  value as far as iconic goes in the show as it was in the comic. Or at least close. To me, that’s the only way out at this point. You have fake killed Glenn at this point so the huge initial shock of his death at Negan’s hand is gone. So do something no one would expect to really make it iconic. Oh, and we get to keep Glenn in my scenario! I’m not going to speculate or discuss Enid at the moment.

Maggie, I loved her character in the beginning, but for the past few episodes her fake southern accent is becoming very distracting. I hope they figure out what’s causing that and get it under control before it makes her character too annoying to like anymore.

Morgan, even in this state, is still in the top tier as one of my favorite characters on the show. I am biased, I know, because of his role in the show Jericho, I have loved everything he has done. I sincerely hope they keep him in the main character role and use him more and more in some way.

The best quote of the night, “The people around you dying, that’s the hard part.” The best commercial during the show, the Fallout 4 commercial of course! What’s with the blood going through the walls? I have no idea. No clue.

I did quite like the interaction between Glenn and Enid in this episode. Sure, she did pull a gun on him but it all worked out for the best…so far. The dialogue was good, the scenes were good. The two had good presence on the screen together. I think that segment was a win! Not that they are friends or anything, just good presence.

Overall, I think this episode was good. I am not sure how I feel about the whole Glenn situation still, the feelings still aren’t processed. But overall, I think it was a successful episode.

The Walking Dead Season 6 Episodes 4, 5 & 6

I got a bit behind in my blogs about The Walking Dead so I am just going to clump all these episodes together and kind of summarize my thoughts about them overall.

So far we still don’t know if Glenn is truly dead, undead or not. We did get a little of cliff hanger on Episode 6 when we heard someone’s voice on the walkie talkie saying help. Everyone that voted on Talking Dead seemed to think that was Glenn’s voice, but I am unsure. Daryl has apparently given up his crossbow and his bike, which I think maybe it was time to sort of revitalize his character anyway, so that could be a good start. I LOVED the way they they did the Morgan episode, some say it was slow and/or boring but I think it was fantastic. And it doesn’t make me dislike Morgan’s character in the slightest, in fact, I think I like it more. And what is the deal with the blood running down the wall in Alexandria?! I guess we will have to wait to find that out!

There are only two episodes left before the half season break this year and there are a lot of things going on, I am very excited to see how they kind of wrap it up for the mid-season finale!

Predictions: I still think that we will find out Glenn was rescued/captured by the Wolves or some other new introduction group as I think the Alexandria story line has almost served it’s purpose for now. I’m not saying they will be leaving Alexandria anytime soon, I am simply saying that I think soon another part of the story will be revealed. For those that have read the comic, you know what I am referring to. No spoilers since it’s just my prediction anyway.
