If I tell you the best part of tonight’s episode of the walking Dead It was the door handle, do you believe me? Because it’s true, but that sounds like a bigger hit against “alt” than I mean. It was a great door handle.

While still happy to take his sweet time Walk to the end of the seriesTonight’s episode has gone up a bit compared to last week’s episode.”new deal,‘But only when you’re out of the Commonwealth, focusing on Aaron, Lydia, Jerry and Elijah’s trip to fetch and check out supplies to Oceanside. But since that’s fun, let’s get started and get the Commonwealth stuff out of the way.

Really, all you need to know is that Pam wants another scapegoat for last week’s disaster as Eugene played a secret recording of Kingsley St. Bovingsworth talking about how stupid non-wealthy people are, Hornsby idiots created a group of zombies within the Commonwealth, and Kingsley ended up eating. Pam knows that both Max and Eugene were responsible for the tape, but is content to let Eugene fall into it all to comfort Mercer, rather than have his sister executed for treason. While conducting searches, all Alexandrians and Hilltoppers are collected and interrogated, Eugene hides in Gabriel’s Church and Max is eventually captured.

Eugene, of course, finally finds a little courage to protect his lady’s love by turning himself in and admitting that he did everything and worked alone, but there are – and please try not to be surprised by this – some confusing scenes along the way, mostly about Pam, who seems to have gotten cranky. Like the last ruler who appeared in the series. Whether she’s talking to Sebastian’s dead body or visiting Hornsby and petting his head (which seems incredibly teasing to him, and as a result annoying to me), Pam is several levels more sinister than she seemed before, which should feel like revealing but rather So. It looks like a retcon.

For example, Pam somehow knows that Hornsby is responsible for leaving zombies in the Commonwealth and indirectly killing Sebastian. She wants Max to sign a confession that she has stopped taking her depression medication, thus being misled by Eugene and the other newcomers. She brought zombie Sebastian, a knife, and the warm corpse of Hornsby’s chief idiot to Hornsby’s dungeon and told him to feed her son. I suppose, with the death of her son, that her reputation has been ruined by the article of being “the Gazette” devoid of evidence and recording, and Eugene is ready to confess, she will try to capture and/or kill all the inhabitants of Alexandria just for doing something evil.

Although the Commonwealth is still A’s story, it’s less interesting than Aaron and his gang’s attempt trip to Oceanside. After running through a line (single coil?) of zombies blocking the road, Aaron makes the stupid decision to take the truckload of supplies off-road where it immediately breaks down. Then he runs over Jerry’s feet and makes his knee bleed. They have to roam a completely undiscovered Renaissance festival the language. it’s great!

Although they’ve checked all security measures three times, that night, Aaron and Lydia are shocked to discover somehow that zombies have entered Rinfest.. In fact, there are a lot of zombies, forcing the quartet to burrow into the castle, where … There is a door handle. And when the zombies gather outside, that knob begins to rotate, causing the group to move to the surface. “Whispers!” Damn Aaron, reasonably.

Neither Aaron nor Jerry the limp were particularly surprised when they found a “zombie” crawling on the roof to pick them up, or grabbing a stone to slash Jerry’s brains. But this makes Aaron so angry that he starts hitting a whisper in the head. Fist before taking off the mask – only to find a bloodied skull underneath. It wasn’t Whisperer at all. It was a zombie – a zombie that remembers how to open door handles, climb, and use tools.

If you have paid attention to the walking Dead A franchise for the past few years – although goodness only knows why it was acquired – you’re probably aware that it’s been sowing seeds for “altering” zombies, zombies that are smarter and therefore more dangerous than the average rickety. You probably knew what was coming, like me, which is kind of a shame because I bet it would be a very interesting reveal. But even knowing it was coming didn’t diminish my enjoyment of seeing the walking Dead Introducing a real game changer.

Of course, it’s a bit weird and tragic TWD This very interesting twist of episode 172 of 177, technically saved another 0.028 percent of the TV series, when it could have made the show dramatically more interesting, much sooner. And sure, this Not nearly as exciting as the prequel to Whisperers, when a clear zombie lightly escapes Jesus’ attacks out of nowhere, but We know that this development will have much deeper repercussions for the future walking dead series, or at least in Europe Daryl Dixon. Will it have future repercussions for the few remaining episodes of TWD Appropriate? I certainly hope so, but I’m pessimistic enough to expect that’s the only annoying we get, and we’ll have to keep in touch with the spin-offs for more.

That’s not something I’m cool-excited before. Because even though I was really excited about a zombie turning on the doorknob tonight, believe me, I’m well aware that my relationship with this show has gotten to a point where the doorknob is the most exciting thing. the walking Dead Can you think of giving me.

Miscellaneous meditations:

  • About 90 percent of the footage was of Eugene at church, so enjoy this photo of Kingsley turning into Lunchable from last week.
  • It turns out that Jerry is a samurai? It ruled, but it greatly exacerbated it TWD This delicious morsel saved us when we could have watched him make his way through the apocalypse since his debut in Season 7..
  • The Princess has a good scene as she talks to Mercer about the importance of not accepting the better part of a bad situation which would have been more impactful had the Princess had. More screen time this season.
  • “We don’t have to put each other down anymore” is a very devastating phrase carried from Pam to the corpse of her horrible son.
  • Eugene was trying to threaten Daryl and then put his dukes down somewhat amusing.
  • I am also very annoyed by it TWD Part of this chain could have been set in Renfest at any time but you haven’t chosen to do so yet. King of the samurai Jerry in the Renaissance Festival! where is he who – which spin off?!
