The Walking Dead Name drops a Big Villain in the Bonus Scene (Spoilers)

The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale entitled “Start To Finish” started out with a bang. The intensity of the initial “escape by the skin of your teeth” sequences after the watchtower collapsed set up which should have been an exciting sprint to the finish. But ultimately the mid-season finale is as memorable for the mishandling of a key character focused scene and an ending which leaves us hanging until the show returns next year on February 16th.

The Walking Dead: Season 6, Episode 7 “Heads Up” Review

Did The Walking Dead’s Twist Backfire? (Spoilers)

Well, well, well … look who’s back? You don’t realize how much you love a character until they’re gone. The longer the show avoided addressing this season’s most talked about event, it seemed the more likely that the fan theories would be correct. This is the part where you can say “I told you so” and pat yourself on the back.

Theories on Who is on the Walkie Talkie at the end? (Spoilers)

The Walking Dead’s Season 6, Episode 6 centered on Daryl, Abraham and Sasha’s story during the day which began way back in the premiere. While “Always Accountable” answered what happened to Daryl, a number of new questions are raised including who said “Help” on the walkie-talkie at the end?

Is there a Clue in this week’s episode about Glenn’s fate? (Spoilers)

The Longest Day Ever could jokingly be a subtitle for the first part of Season 6. It’s not until episode 5 does the day which began in the premiere comes to an end. Because of the non-linear storytelling, we will still see more of this day from Daryl, Sasha and Abraham’s perspective.

The Walking Dead: Season 6, Episode 4 “Here’s Not Here” Review

The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 4 Recap (Spoilers)

“Here’s not here” gives us a chance to catch our breath and decompress from the action packed, super intense start to the season. The Walking Dead is no stranger to characters evolving in surprising ways from when we first met them. The difference with Morgan is that unlike Rick or Carol we haven’t witnessed his gradual transformation over the years.

The few and far between times we have caught up with Morgan, namely Season 3’s Clear and Season 5’s Conquer, his state of mind had distinctly changed. As much as we are wondering what’s happening with Glenn and the rest Rick’s gang in the present day, the timing aside, we needed to eventually have a Morgan centric flashback that fills us in on what happened to him.

The Walking Dead: Season 6, Episode 3 “Thank You” Review

Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 3 Review

The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 3 Recap (Spoilers)

Boy that was an uneventful episode. Cries. The start of Season 6 is the strongest ever. Period. If last week’s “JSS” left viewers with a triumphant feeling, “Thank you” rips out your heart and stomps on it. This was a powerful episode to say the least. Judging by the online reaction a lot of fans are still in denial on what went down.

The Walking Dead: Season 6, Episode 2 “Just Survive Somehow” Review

The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 2 Recap (Spoilers)

If you would have told me that this week’s The Walking Dead wouldn’t resolve the season premiere’s incredible cliffhanger which had a horde of zombies approaching Alexandria, I probably would have been a little disappointed. But “JSS”, turned out to be a really good episode, providing a strong one, two punch to start off Season 6.

The Walking Dead: Season 6, Episode 1 “First Time Again” Review

The Walking Dead Season 6 Premiere Recap (Spoilers)

The dead are back! The Walking Dead’s 6th season premiere kicked off with a solid opening salvo, proving there’s still plenty of life in this ongoing zombie saga. 

If The Walking Dead was simply about killing zombies in the most gruesome ways possible, the show would eventually get stale after the shock value wore off. Instead, it’s the evolution of Rick and co., both as individual characters and as a growing community which keeps the show from going past its expiry date.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 16 “Conquer” Season Finale Review

The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Conquer Review

Phew! Talk about an intense season finale. I have to admit I was on pins and needles through-out the hour plus run time.

Before we get to the nitty-gritty details there are several takeaways that made this finale work in terms of capping off the story lines that have been building up. Resolution on the Pete story line not only ended with a bang but it resulted in Deanna and co. getting on board with Rick’s program.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 15 “Try” Review

Try To Conquer

If the aim of the Season 5’s penultimate episode is to build up the story lines to just before a major turning point or an intense culmination of events, the mission is accomplished. That’s not to say that each of this week’s story lines are equally engaging, but that developments have sufficiently escalated to what should be a strong finale.

To get an idea of what the finale might have in store let’s review some of the clues found in this episode. Based on the dismembered body parts and the “W” carved in the woman’s forehead, whoever destroyed Noah’s community is closing in on Alexandria. The scope view from Sasha’s rifle as she picked off the walkers outside of Alexandria also showed that the support beams on are the wrong side of the wall.
