Shit just got serious on The Walking Dead and ‘Twice As Far’ finally killed off someone from Rick’s group. They have been pretty lucky up to this point considering they have been able to murder a whole ton of Saviors who have not been able to scare the shit out of anyone yet. Seriously though, if you actually think about it, the Saviors have been less of a threat than those sneaky wolves who were at least able to actually take out some of the Alexandrians.
Luckily, the cloak of invincibility is finally wearing off and Denise clearly should have stayed home. The original group of Alexandrians are dropping like flies considering they have no idea what the fuck they’re doing when they come out from behind the walls. There is not a whole lot of them remaining (I think Heath, Spencer, Aaron and Enid are the only notable ones left) so I’m not quite sure that Rick’s presence has been a good thing for these people. At least the Saviors finally made an impact. In my opinion, they haven’t been much of a threat at all up to this point considering the kill count is like 21-1. I have a feeling that this is going to change soon.
‘Twice As Far’ was one of the better slower-paced episodes and I think this had a lot to do with the fact that certain characters are much more fun to watch when they’re paired up with the right people. Abraham and Eugene always have a way of making me laugh and, surprisingly, having Daryl, Rosita and Denise team up to hit up the local apothecary was a pleasant surprise. Plus, Dwight returned for a short reunion with Daryl but it is pretty clear that something Negan-related happened to his face after their last encounter. And with Carol making the dumbest decision ever to leave Alexandria by herself without telling anyone, I think it’s only a matter of time before the Saviors and Alexandrians square off again.
Now grab yourself a backpack full of prescription drugs, and maybe a couple of sodas if that’s your jam, and enjoy the review, fellow walkers!
