TWD Episode 3 of Season 8 just aired and I have some qualms I wish to discuss.
First off, I am enjoying the past 3 episodes and how the are too the minute continuations of each other.
With the exception of The season openers flash forwards and back, So far everything's been fairly easy to follow.
We pick up right where we left off last week with seemingly Ricks life hanging in the balance while Morales holds a gun point blank on him.
This is my first issue,
rather than have a random Saviour in place of Morales, the producers decide to bring back a character, long forgotten, immediately after He decided
to leave the group back in Atlanta.
The producers then develop Morales character by having him explain what happened to him and his family after he left the group back in season 1.
This carries on for the better part of the beginning of the episode. Rick and him going back and forth.
Just when we think maybe Rick will turn Morales against the Saviours, have him join up with team good guys and will live happily ever after, Mr Dixon
walks in and puts a crossbow bolt into his head.
Why even bring him back?
The producers don't like loose ends I guess?
A long forgotten character, that had as much of an impact on the show as a fly does hitting a skyscraper.
Good bye Morales...you still won't be remembered.
The war rages on while Eric and Aaron find a nice shady tree to sit under.
Eric bleeding from the guts, tells Aaron to put his big boy panties on and get back in the fight.
A long drawn out good bye from Eric, which is a character that has had minimal screen time and is supposed to be the boyfriend of a multi season
We never really got to know Eric enough to give a crap about his death.
we seen it coming. The last episode has Eric helping turn the tide in the fight by running behind a car to hide...thus getting himself shot.
Great job Eric, your death will be just as memorable as Morales was.
One scene I found particularly interesting was the scene where Rick hands over newly orphaned and abducted infant Gracie, to widowed Aaron.
In the back ground you can see way off in the distance a blue van drive by.
Was that supposed to be there?
Maybe it was some of the good guys catching a ride going home.
I'll have to rewatch the episode again.
At the end of the episode, one of the left over Saviours decide to take a pot-shot at Rick and Daryl.
Rick tells him to come out, give them so info and he can go on his merry way.
So the guy comes out divulges the info Ricks looking for, and when he asks if he can go,
Mr Dixen pops a bullet into his head.
All in all, I'm enjoying how the season is playing out so far. A continuous connection of episodes, with the exception of a few instances of bad or
What did you all think of tonight's episode?
