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.

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"
