TV Review: The Walking Dead S6E8 Start to Finish

The Walking Dead wraps up with a mid-season finale that some how makes an epic story feel really small. The story focuses on two groups of survivors as the walkers flood in to Alexandria. The first is a group led by Rick and the second is Morgan and Carol.

The first group involves Rick, Michonne, Carl, Deana, Gabriel, and more. The group is an interesting focus in that it’s a microcosm discussing life and death in this new world. Individuals do die, and others wish they died, or attempt to. And, some actions make things even more difficult for the group.

It’s all fascinating, in that with what we expected to be a grand episode with lots of action was anything but. Instead, it’s a character study, like much of the series. The walkers are just props to see how a group and people would act in this world.

That’s also the focus on Morgan and Carol’s story arc. Carol knows something is up with Morgan who is hiding one of the member’s of Alexandria and a Wolve in his basement. This leads to a confrontation that’s best not to spoil. Again, it isn’t about the fight, but the debate about what should be done. Whether in this world enemies must die, or does killing make them no better than the walkers? It’s a fascinating debate that will rage for the rest of the season and well in to the next.

Started by a major moment, leading into an invasion of walkers, instead of a action filled shoot-em-up episode, we get what amounts for a quieter episode that focuses on who these people are, and what it means to survive in this new world.

TV Review: The Walking Dead S6E7 Heads Up

The Walking Dead answers a major question right away in tonight’s episode, what happened to Glenn? It should really be no surprise for folks following spoilers online, so I’ll outright say, he’s fine, and while how he does is a bit grumbling in the realism, it’s plausible. Even knowing Glenn would be sticking around, I have to say, I was still overwhelmingly happy to see him being ok. I think that says something as to the power of the show and how much we’ve come to love and connect with these characters.

The episode also moves along some other interesting plot points.

There’s Morgan letting folks live, and whether his philosophy is realistic in this new world. There’s the hoard of walkers at the walls, and there’s teaching folks to defend themselves which is just in time.

But, what I find really interesting about this episode is Rick’s actions toward Father Gabriel, and some symbolism at the end of the episode, almost as if saying religion is going to be everyone’s undoing. It’s interesting moments, and subtle and not so subtle, that can get folks debating for a while as to the significance.

There’s one episode left before the winter break, and the series is amping things up based on that final moments. While I’m bummed to see a break, I’m really amped to see what next week’s episode brings.

Overall rating: 8.4

TV Review: The Walking Dead S6E6 Always Accountable

The Walking Dead takes us through two journeys during the Wolve’s attack on Alexandria, Daryl and Abraham & Sasha. The episode is a fascinating one in that it really focuses on these three characters.

First, it kicks off with lots of action and someone shooting at them. Is it the Wolves? Is it someone other group?

Daryl’s journey has him come across three individuals who are on the run from a group… we assume it’s the Wolves, but they never quite say. Instead we see burned out remnants of the area and what’s clearly reprisal. The three survivors think Daryl is part of the group that’s pursuing them. The way Daryl interacts with them, and how he deals with them is fascinating shedding lots of light onto his character. The end with the survivors is particularly of note as it sees Daryl taking on his new role, and learning as he goes.

Then there’s Abraham and Sasha who wind up in a small town where they decide to wait for Daryl. There, small conversations just shed a lot of light on where the two are in their lives…. and their relationship is explored.

This is another episode which shows that this series isn’t about the dead shambling about, it’s about the people. And in this hour, we’ve learned so much more about those that inhabit this new world.

Overall rating: 8.75
