There is a scene in walking Dead The latest episode “Hunt”, which completely encapsulates all of my frustration in this new and improved zombie show. The embarrassment of seasons 7 and 8 has improved the situation, but quality control has yet to be found anywhere when it comes to the screenplays that the show’s scriptwriters continue to tinker with under Angela Kang.
The scene I’m talking about includes some of the surviving women of Alexandria who went out to get the horses back in the community. Carol, Magna, Rossita and Kelly began looking for horses and instead found many of their bodies. Feeling defeated, they decide to go home before it gets dark.
Then, miraculously, the horse appears at the top and runs around the field. They are heading to the dairy, one of the women shouts. You can put a pen there! And they walk to catch the horse.
We headed to the dairy farm where the last horse was successfully enclosed. Well done work. But how? How did these four women all roll up all these horses on foot? How could they catch up with them in the first place?
In previous scenes, they tried to catch only one of these beasts, but couldn’t lasso all four at once. So how do you believe they have captured all the rest? It’s ridiculous.
All clean plot holes
Ezekiel, Yumiko, Eugene, and Princess manage to get out of the cage and steal two Stormtrooper armors. largely Successful escape from the Commonwealth.
Sure, I knew that the two guards had to ugly bump into each other during the break and take off their armor to do that, but the hero knew where that was happening. Or just below. Do you get out of their cage in the first place? It’s not just an oversight, it’s a lazy and arrogant writing. Angela Khan may say it out loud.
It was an arrogant attitude walking Dead Showrunner since Scott M. Gimple was in charge. Is it a zombie? Is it a zombie? We expect characters to act in plausible and wise ways and suffer the consequences of making stupid or selfish decisions.
Things just can’t happen, and that’s especially true off-screen. Carroll’s group of little cowgirls couldn’t stand the reasonable chance of easily langling a dozen or so horses on foot, so they don’t show it. Why is there a sequence from the beginning? Would you like to let your horse roam the town?
A better scene is Carol’s painful decision to kill one of the horses so that the people of Alexandria can eat, but see the kids eating meat at exactly the same time Carol goes out. And still confused stables kill poor creatures. So wasn’t it horse meat? Did they eat anything else? It’s complicated.
Don’t be afraid of the reaper
Carol’s Horse Whisper is a side plot of tonight’s episode. The true flesh of the story (well, the metaphorical flesh of the story anyway) is entirely focused on the survivors of the Grim Reaper’s attack. (At some point, the names of all these groups are very stupid and annoying — wolves, saviors, whispers, reapers, and yet our own heroes don’t have such a monica, why? )
The opening scene is a disaster that pretends to be an exciting sequence of actions and is poorly choreographed.
What about the strange lighting of Maggie’s face during each close-up? Why was this shot taken from such a distracting angle, with our heroes running around all sorts of things while the off-screen reaper throws a hatchet and knife? When big guys are hit with those knives, they look like they are moving in slow motion. Why does one Grim Reaper hurt Gabriel’s neck? It’s a distractingly bad opening segment.
From here, things recover a little. Maggie suddenly finds himself mysteriously wandering I just run away or guess to find another survivor? She goes to an abandoned department store and brings a throwing knife almost behind. When she gets inside, the Reapers seem to be there already. I think one of their superpowers knows exactly where the good guys are.
She found Alden in a large open room at the top of the building. He gets hurt and how he has done it himself remains a mystery. The two reapers literally appear out of nowhere, piercing Alden and Maggie into the ground. Another reaper superpower is the ability to move with complete silence and invisibility. Maggie is almost a success when Negan appears to save her.
He can save most episodes, but it’s not perfect. Still, with him the situation is better. They help Alden get out of the building and find two more Maggie people. A woman named Agatha and a big man at the door of death. Why bother learning one of these people’s names when they are just used as cheap deaths? Maggie has now lost almost all the people she brought to Alexandria.
Elijah, Maggie’s own masked friend, who appears to be in a style similar to the Reapers, seems to have been taken prisoner, but I’m not 100% sure about it. So, only a few minutes later, she is bitten by a zombie, with only Agatha left. Maggie tries to save her, and Negan is forced to take her away — not that Maggie is grateful, but saves her again from a particular death. She gives another speech about not being one of them, never so, somehow somehow. Maggie you’ve been away for years. Negan is a member of the group more than you at the moment.
After Negan says he needs to call Maggie, they leave Alden lonely and she continues to make a silly confession about how he can no longer decide who will live and die. “You still have to decide,” he says, looking tired above all else. So they leave Alden behind and promise to return for him after them. .. .. Well, I’m not sure about the plan at the moment. Negan kills a zombie outside, and the blood dripping from his bar reminds me of both when Glen met Lucille.
I remembered when the show got so bad that I was confused about how much I liked Negan and how much I hated Maggie.
Watch my video review of this episode below:
Verdict: Negan and Gabriel for victory
The best female character in this show is not that star. Carol is almost always frustrated by her constant wishwash melodramatic nonsense. Maggie is a one-note bore and we shouldn’t have her.
Please tell us more about Rosita’s high level of sensibility. Details of the strange strangeness of the princess. Magna and Yumiko are more interesting and layered when not written in the stupid relationship section.
However walking Dead Insisting on making Maggie and Carol the female stars of the show, whether or not they bring them to the table, Michonne all when he left the kids in the midst of a desperate and horrifying war with Whisperer. After losing his trust, he left. So I’m here.
Meanwhile, Gabriel continues to be one of the show’s most amazing characters, from cowards and rat-biting to one of the most ruthless murderers in a cheerful little band. When he chases the injured Grim Reaper, the man asks him to pray with him (publishing the group as a band of religious enthusiasts) and Gabriel gets the best line of episodes. increase.
“I thought you were a man of God,” says Reaper.
“God isn’t here anymore,” Gabriel replied before killing him.
In many respects, Negan and Gabriel are the two most consistent and most varied characters. Carol is constantly changing, but her arc is not truly consistent. Rick was the same. Darryl changed a long time ago, but he remains almost the same man for many of the seasons now. Negan and Gabriel have the most dynamic and interesting arcs.
Anyway, this was a pretty weak episode. The first two were better (although still good for one long episode), but putting all three side by side would be a pretty volatile start. walking DeadThe final season of is rarely optimistic about what’s coming next. Maybe this was a bad episode hidden in a good episode. We will see.
