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 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 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 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.

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.
