The Walking Dead returned with its mid-season premiere and, while I was left somewhat satisfied with some of the events, there were still a lot of plot holes, especially considering how things wrapped up during the mid-season finale. Didn’t Sam start calling for him mom when that ended? Well, obviously this was never addressed and us viewers were expected to simply forget that that obnoxious kid was about to blow their cover. Don’t get me wrong, watching Sam eventually blow up the entire plan was satisfying in every way and it’s about time people started dying left and right but I wish the writers would have actually followed up on the previous ending from the finale.
The other awesome part of No Way Out involved lots and lots of fire, especially the kind that comes from an RPG. Daryl, Sasha and Abraham have me the most interested after they are stopped by a group of bikers who are obviously going to be the next threat. They even mention their leader, Negan, who is supposed to be one crazy mofo so I’m excited to finally see a brand new villain thrown into the mix.
I guess the only big thing that bothered me about this episode was how easy it was to extinguish the walker threat that was raining down on Alexandria. I mean, if the walkers are attracted to fire in the first place, why the F are you not lighting fires? I’m just going to pretend that no one knew this in the first place. At least we got to see Sam being eaten like he was a cookie. Enjoy the review, fellow walkers!
