Guess who is back! The Walking Dead came back with the Mid-Season premiere. If you watched it, you probably have been enjoying your brand new Xanax prescription because it was freaking stressful! Lets not sit in anticipation and get this over with…
So in this episode, we picked up right where we left off… in the threshold of Hell! Don’t worry, Carol wakes up quickly and she is pissed. But the main parts of this episode were focused on Glenn trying to get inside Alexandria to save Maggie, Rick’s group covered in Walker guts trying to get to safety, Daryl’s group escaping this random biker gang, and Carol’s group huffing and puffing while the Wolf walks away with his hostage.
In summary, Daryl destroys the biker gang with an RPG, Carol gets pissed at Morgan and ends up killing the Wolf from a distance, Glenn barely rescues Maggie after Daryl’s group shows up with some big guns, and Rick looses half of his group… oh did I mention Carl gets shot in the face? All in all, this episode can be described in one gif…
This episode was so freaking good! It is being called one of the best! I mean it is hard to pick things about it and say it was awesome, because basically people were just dying left and right so that’s kind of sick. Moments that made me yell “YASSSS” include Daryl not saving the day once, not twice, but three times! He is the man! Carol blowing that guys brains out made me smile. But the moment of the night we are all thinking about is the tragic minute of television where we watched those three people get torn apart one by one which ended up with a bullet in Carl’s eye. Like what the hell! So yes, this was absolutely terrifying, but Carl is still alive which means we all owe the producers a round of applause because that was good television!
This episode… like I can’t even begin to understand this family who got torn apart. The little boy was torn apart… I didn’t think the show would ever go there. But it WENT there. I am still stressed out. If you could see my face when this all happened, you would still be laughing. I don’t have any complaints about this episode except for the high blood pressure levels. BUT, I did see the sneak peek for next week. Why in the hell is our group venturing outside of the wall already! Take a break for just a day please.
Daryl is by far the true MVP of this episode. Want to know why? Well if Daryl wasn’t here, the show would end and we would be forced to watch Fear The Walking Dead…. Nobody wants that. So thank Daryl Dixon once again.
This episode was crazy. If your blood pressure comes down in time, the show is on again this Sunday. Here is a sneak peek. So enjoy if you are up for it. Until next time, don’t be afraid of the dark because Daryl Dixon will always keep us safe.
