The Walking Dead team delivers a guns-blazing action movie with Not Tomorrow Yet. Right now it looks like team Rick has two doctors at their disposal, but if things keep up like this, they’re gonna need an armorer.
Of all the characters on The Walking Dead to catch baby fever, it’s Abraham Ford that opens his heart when “Knots Untie”. This was a fun episode for the human semi-automatic.
Two months after the bloody events of last episode The Walking Dead enjoys a little fun in “The Next World”. Even a few minutes into this episode I’m thinking, “Wow, someone directed the hell outta this thing.” That somebody is director Kari Skogland.
The entertainment stars aligned this weekend delivering an incredible Deadpool to the big screen and The Walking Dead punched back hard for the small screen with “No Way Out”. It’s a tight, action packed episode loaded with drama and led by an incredible hero, Glenn. But first…
Glenn and Enid watch The Walking Dead invade Alexandria from “Start to Finish”. Perched in the safety of a very tall tree, it looks pretty grim. Enid wants to run, but Glenn convinces her people are worth going back for.
The Walking Dead sends us a Heads Up about a new walker disaster for Alexandria. It can’t be easy producing a show about a devastating plague and the homicidal survivors left behind, especially when the world we actually live in proves to be more treacherous and deadly. It feels good to see Glenn prevail against an impossible crush of walkers.
The Walking Dead gives Daryl, Ford, and Sasha their own road-trip story, “Always Accountable.” Daryl loses a quart of blood, his bike, and crossbow to the new guy.
The Walking Dead joins all story timelines to Now. Rick escapes from herd surrounding his RV and arrives back at Alexandria about ten feet in front of thousands of walkers. Half the horde they were leading away from town now surrounds the walls of the settlement.

The Walking Dead sends loyal fans a “Thank You” with a machete through our hearts. This takes place at the same time as last episode when the wolves attacked Alexandria. Rick and his horde team head back to Alexandria when they hear the horn sound and walkers follows the noise.
Jennifer Lynch brings her directing talent to the amazing cast and crew of The Walking Dead and sends us an action packed siege led by the wolves and repulsed by Carol in JSS. Last week was great, this week was even better when the fighting went house to house.
