This week The Walking Dead adapts the fantastic stand alone volume of Robert Kirkman comic book series, ‘Here’s Negan’. It’s something that’s been long awaited in TWD community, pretty much since the volume released in 2016, and it was easy to imagine Jeffrey Dean Morgan slipping into the role of pre-apocalypse Negan. And despite this adaptation being part of the run of COVID episodes, no sign of filming hindrances causes by pandemic precautions are on show here. In fact, ‘Here’s Negan’ is not only the best episode of this recent truncated season, it is one of the best episodes of The Walking Dead ever.

This week sees the latest in the series of pandemic episodes for The Walking Dead, and this is the one that perhaps demonstrates the limitations enforced on the show by a global pandemic in which close contact is generally considered a bad idea.

As I wrote last week, the COVID restrictions placed on TV and film production have had a noticeable affect on certain productions. From storyline changes in TV shows to films having release dates pushed back multiple times, the industry has almost universally suffered. The Walking Dead on the other hand, has found the positive in the situation more than most.

The Walking Dead is back! And in a strange turn of events, this isn’t the beginning of a new season – or the return after a mid-season break. No, this is the return of TWD for a bonus set of episodes, added on to the 16 episode run season 10 had, despite the fact that the season 10 ‘finale’ aired months ago. This unprecedented course of action is due to the unprecedented times we live in and the show runners do a great job of bringing us the zombie stories we love in the time of a pandemic. These episodes hopefully won’t feel tacked on; if this first episode is anything to go by then they certainly won’t.

The Walking Dead is back! Finally! Unfortunately, once this episode ends it’s taken away from us for another long stretch. This episode isn’t the start of a new season as one might expect at this time of year, instead it’s the long delayed season 10 finale – 6 months later than planned.

For now, with this and that currently halting production, ‘The Tower’ is acting as the season finale. But even in those terms, it’s a fun and effective episode that both sets up the impending threat and introduces us to a very different new character.

Last week, I was unsure how the gang would escape. But I was still pretty confident that they would escape. But in ‘Walk With Us’, Hilltop is not just beaten, it’s decimated. And all of the heroes are thrown to the wind.

I don’t know how they do it. Even after ten years – and the same amount of seasons – nothing gets me hyped like a big battle on this show. This time it ‘s the battle for Hilltop. And judging by the end of this episode, our heroes are going to need a miracle if they hope to win.
