So there we have it, another half-season gone in the blink of an eye. Though this episode didn’t give us an action-packed mid-finale, it did wrap up the themes and ideas that we’ve been seeing for the past eight weeks. This half of the season has been the ‘Cold War’ with the Whisperers, with both sides taking shots and being careful not to overstep. By the end of The World Before, it’s apparent that, going forward, the war will be anything but cold.Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘The World Before’ Review"
I owe some people an apology. Since being introduced, I’ve defended Dante’s wacky antics. People said he was weird, but hey, he was weird in the comics. It’s his shtick. But as it turns out, all those people who said something was ever so slightly off with Dante were 100% correct. In a very surprising moment, one that feels tailor-made to pull the rug out from under the comic readers, Dante kills Siddiq.
I guess it wouldn’t be a season of The Walking Dead if the resident medical professional didn’t get the chop.Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘Open Your Eyes’ Review"
If you’re not won over by Negan yet, chances are you never will be. This episode sees him learning the ins and outs of the Whisperers as he suffers a trial by fire, courtesy of a jealous Beta. Elsewhere, Daryl and Carol begin what seems like a ill-advised mission into Whisperer territory, but we soon learn that Carol had it all planned out.Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘Bonds’ Review"
Finally, after years of waiting, the Negan fans got the episode we’d all been waiting for. Sure, we’ve had Negan episodes in the past but this was the first time we could genuinely root for him – as the honest to god good guy no less.Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘What It Always Is’ Review"
Season 10 of The Walking Dead continues its hot streak with another dynamite episode. Things threaten to come apart in the communities, thanks to a falling tree at Hilltop and Negan at Alexandria. Not to mention the imminent threat of the Whisperers – a problem everyone seems to have a solution to. Where’s diplomatic Sheriff Grimes when you need him?Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘Silence the Whisperers’ Review"
Let’s not beat around the bush, when you get to your tenth season you’ve got to start mixing things up to avoid the whole thing going stale. And you can’t claim that The Walking Dead hasn’t shaken things up. This episode sees Carol suffering from sleep deprivation and a great turn towards the good side for Negan. Both bold choices, but it makes Ghosts one excellent episode.Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘Ghosts’ Review"
We’ve spent half a season now and, although we’ve picked up some clues, we don’t really know a whole lot about The Whisperers. We’ve seen bits of Alpha’s life and can understand why she’s a bit weird but ultimately there’s still that disconnect. These guys wear the skins of the walkers and live out in the woods in their makeshift cult – how exactly do you explain that? This episode goes a long way towards making sense of that.Read more "The Walking Dead – ‘We Are the End of the World’ Review"
