Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead picks up the pace a little bit from last week’s disaster, but we still find ourselves watching bits and segments of the full story rather than the whole thing.
This time around we get Daryl, Abraham and Sasha. That’s a more sensible combination than the Rick/Maggie/Extras episode last week, but what we’re left with is too many questions.
Glenn’s fate remains an irritating mystery, growing more frustrating by the week (and really, there’s only so long they can drag this out. The line between suspense and gimmick is thin.) The actual reunion and discussion between survivors has yet to occur, since last week Rick spent the whole time dawdling about instead of actually discussing what happened with the zombie plan and the Wolves’ assault. Carol and Michonne and Morgan were mere blips on the radar.
Instead, this week we’re introduced to a whole new suite of questions, characters, and conflict. That’s not a bad thing, but the episode itself felt a bit disjointed, even though I enjoyed getting a bit more time with Daryl, who actually got a few lines in this time around.
