The Walking Dead Episode 4


This is a slow burn of an episode.
With Negan ( Jeffrey Dean Morgan) wisecracking his way into Alexandria ( his jokes and easy manner already getting on everyone's tits including the audience's) we see "team Rick"reacting to the threat in a somewhat interesting and varied way.
As Carl, Michonne and Rosita bubble away with quiet fury. Father Gabriel cleverly covers Maggie's tracks by showing  Negan a fake grave  ( Negan has already proved himself a talented psychoanalyst by understanding the danger of women scorned)
Rick ( threatened by Daryl and Oliva's deaths) gives away all of Alexandria's weapons and faces the backlash for it even though it is obvious it will buy him and the others some time ....time for perhaps Kingdom and Hilltop to join forces.
I could do without Judith's step dad Andrew Lincoln's goggle eyed overacting but as a stand alone episode this one was an interesting study in psychological warfare, especially as it's the Walking Dead's women who are now stepping up to the plate.

  1. I missed the first 10 minutes. what happened to Maggie, or rather where did she go? to be honest, I am not liking this story line. I despise such cruelty and Negan. surely team Rick will rise again but in the meantime, if Negan is on, I don't want to watch. and I missed your post on the 3rd episode. couldn't find it.

    2. How did I miss that about Maggie? I hope we don't have to see Negan the whole season or next. He's worse than that one-eyed guy.

  4. They must have some great writers - y'all sure do get caught up in the story.

  5. I've never seen any of the show "The Walking Dead" so I have no understanding of what you're talking about. But I feel like the walking dead. Does that count?

  6. Sorry John, I've still not seen this show; in fact I've never seen it mentioned as being on TV at all. I presume it's on some pay-TV channel.

  7. Negan is tiresome already - he has one note, all lines are delivered in the same way. I hope we don't get too many episodes like last night because I did find it a little tedious.

  9. I couldn't figure out what Michonne saw burning at the end - apparently the Saviours burnt the mattresses that they had taken from Alexandria.
    I hate what they are doing to Daryl - I wonder when he will escape, I hope it's soon.

  10. I have had ENOUGH of Negan.... someone needs to take him out and take him out soon... My God he's just one person... everybody hates him why do they put up with him?? I don't know how Rick did it...I would have got one good lick in with that bat before they got me.... And Daryl... don't get me started... I hope they all find a way to rise up soon.... because i've about had enough!! Hugs! deb
