The Walking Dead Awards: The Alexandrians finally step-up
Every week, we comb with the guts from the Walking Dead, similar to a horde of hungry walkers, to create the episode’s best moments, surprises, along with other publish-apocalyptic curiosities. Now: Daryl blasts, Ron hacks, Carl lacks (a watch).
Season 6, Episode 9: “No Way Out”
Best fake-out: With the discuss season six’s dark turn and also the promise that “so lots of people die,” within the premiere, we thought both Abraham and Sasha weren’t lengthy with this world right from the start. Thankfully, Chekhov’s RPG, introduced not lengthy prior to the midseason break, rapidly saved each of our heroes and delayed Negan’s arc not less than some time.
Worst fake-out: In line with the final scene from the midseason finale, we expected Sam’s freak-out-switched-massacre happens inside the episode’s first ten minutes. Whenever we saw that Ron and crew were totally fine, i was really just a little disappointed. Obviously, persistence compensated off within an odd, macabre way.
Worst memory: While speaking to Enid, Glenn rattled from the names of the couple of lengthy-gone figures that impacted his existence. But he didn’t remember Janet, his sister-in-law, and T-Dog, an authentic Atlanta Camp companion.
Most hated TWD character: Sam, who now joins the special degree of hell populated by Better Call Saul’s Chuck and Bet on Thrones’s Olly.
Most child murders: Michonne may have wiped out a small tonight, but our record keepers are telling us the deaths of both Anderson youngsters are truly on Carol’s mind. It had been her threatening words that finally caused Sam’s breakdown, which got his entire family wiped out and Carl shot.
Closest to launching a rap career: Carl, getting now been shot two times, is well-poised to go in the background music industry . . . oh wait.
Most satisfying moment: Seeing the backdrop residents of Alexandria finally rise in order to save their town made us very proud. Rick’s speech in the episode’s finish mirrors our feelings exactly-we didn’t think these Red Shirts would ever survive just one master encounter, however we’re searching toward watching them mull around, slightly out-of-focus behind the primary cast. . . a minimum of before the next cull.
Leave Glenn alone! We’re pretty positive that Glenn’s fate will mirror his comic storyline, however this show just won’t stop teasing his dying for now. We half-expect another dumpster situation in a few days.
Enid: When I wanted to run, you said “That’s how you lose people, even after they’re gone.” What the hell does that mean?
Glenn: People you love, they made you who you are. They’re still part of you. If you stop being you, that last bit of them that’s still around inside who you are—it’s gone.
Enid: Who are those people to you?
Glenn: My parents; a man named Dale; Maggie’s father, Hershel; a woman named Andrea; a man named Tyreese. Who are they to you?
Enid: My parents.
Glenn: Then they’re still here, cause you’re still here.
Best kill: Michonne impaling Ron demonstrated her loyalty towards the Grimes family. Coupled with kissing Carl’s brow within the infirmary prior to being the first one to join Ron within the master fight and taking proper care of Judith in the episode’s close . . . Ron, your ideal match was right before you the whole time.
Most disturbing image: This.
(By the way, in case you missed it, Chandler Riggs tweeted this epic Snapchat.)
Episode MVP:Everybody. As Eugene stated, “No one will get to clock out today.” Except the Andersons. Don’t allow the door hit you on its way out.
And when again, where exactly does Ron fall now around the calm/crazy scale?
