At last something to smile about in a dreary season
16 December 2016 | by JenniferLeeThomsonAuthorSee all my reviews

When Rick and Daryl were reunited in this episode they could have been collectively hugging the whole audience because boy, we all needed a hug. Who likes to see their TV heroes like Daryl and rick reduced to blubbering wrecks by a pantomime villain like Negan (is it the script, the acting or the direction that's made him the most annoying person on telly when he's meant to be one of the scariest?.

Getting rid of Alexandria's most annoying character was also a masterstroke. It's the first time I've actually found myself liking evil Negan.

Now I can't wait for Rick to be reunited with Morgan and Carol when they meet King Ezekiel - a character so well acted he deserved more screen time instead of those overlong bottle episodes they choose to show instead.

When The Walking Dead returns, I'm looking forward to hearing Rick, Daryl, Michonne and the gang roar in unison with Shiva the tiger as they take down comic villain Negan.
