Last weeks episode was a doozy; action, excitement and the fulfilment of the promise of Negan’s blood frenzy. This weeks however was sorely lacking in that department. Instead of zombie killing or peoples faces been smashed to a pulp we have Carol in her convalescence.
To be fair the programme does start with a massacre of the undead but after that it falls flat on its face, after that it focus on Carol lazing about and Morgan being Morgan… The compound is interesting enough with bible quotes written on the wall and children running loose. To add to the vibe the personal are armed to the teeth with pikes, swords and equipped with body armour.
The most interesting aspect of this weeks show is the appearance of King Ezekiel and his pet tiger. Though the fact that his feline acquaintance was teased in the trailer kinda lessens the surprise, it’s Darth Mauls double bladed lightsaber all over again.
In all honesty there is not much more to this weeks fare than that, introducing us to new characters is all well and good but more interesting would have been the continuation of Rick’s crew and the plan they must surely be brewing take vengeance against Negan. The only hope with have is that it ends with Ezekiel’s lot making their monthly offering to meet their quota lining them up nicely with taking side with our much loved heroes.
