The Walking Dead 7.07 “Sing Me a Song” Top 5

Negan and Carl at Sanctuary

Another 90-minute episode of The Walking Dead. Carl finally encounters Negan and we see how he fares. Rick and Aaron are off on an adventure. Spencer continues to be flippant in his hatred for Rick. Rosita shames Eugene. And Michonne is off on a mission all by herself. Everyone seems to be scattered. A scattered crew is not going to help in defeating or appeasing Negan. Here are my top 5 moments from “Sing Me a Song.” 5. Michonne’s plan Michonne has gone off by herself. We see her walking down the…

The Walking Dead 7.06 “Swear” Top 5

Another mostly slow episode this week, but we finally get to catch up with Tara. It’s been 9 episodes since we’ve last seen her; since the raid on the Saviors’ outpost. A lot has happened in that time period, while Tara and Heath have been out on the road, scavenging. With Tara mysteriously washing up on a shore, we get to meet the Oceanside colony. Tara proves herself to be quite humorous and it helps to save her life (for a while anyway). Here are my top 5 moments from…

The Walking Dead 7.05 “Go Getters” Top 5

Jesus and Sasha

Finally back to the Hilltop! We get to see what has happened to Maggie and Sasha. I’m so happy to see Jesus again….not so happy to see Gregory, however. The Saviors prove to be relentless with not only Rick and Alexandria, but with Gregory and the Hilltop as well. This was an interesting episode, delving into the dynamics of power, not only in the apocalypse in general, but also when it comes to facing a dominant opponent. Here are my top 5 moments from “Go Getters.” 5. The Saviors It…

The Walking Dead 7.03 “The Cell” Top 5

Well, it seems that the Walking Dead has slowed down to its normal slow pace. This episode reminded me that this show has moved so much more towards the human element of the zombie apocalypse and way away from the walker element. We got a lot of small pieces of information and we got a glimpse into the world of Negan and his Saviors at the Sanctuary and we got to find out what happened to Daryl. Here are my top 5 moments from “The Cell.” The Sanctuary We finally…

The Walking Dead 7.02 “The Well” Top 5

Ezekiel

Well, this second episode is a little breather after last week’s traumatic premiere. It expands our walker world a little further. We get to meet new people (King Ezekiel!) and a new “oasis.” We get to learn what has happened to Carol and Morgan, as they wandered off with a couple of strangers at the end of last season. Morgan continues to be Morgan, and Carol continues to fight against it all. Here are my top 5 moments from “The Well.” 5. The Kingdom The strangers have taken Carol and…

The Walking Dead Episode 7.01, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be” Top 5

Your regular The Walking Dead Top 5 writer is traveling tonight, so I am stepping in. Hopefully I do her justice. As often happens with this show, I was watching most of it through my fingers. Many tears were shed on screen and in my room. I hope you kept the tissues handy because, as promised, this was a doozy. What made this episode different from previous losses was the personal nature of the violence. Others have fallen due to circumstances. Never before have we seen this level of sadistic…

The Walking Dead 6×16 “Last Day on Earth” Top 8

As always, the season finale of The Walking Dead was intense and filled with scary moments. While I’m rather disappointed in the lack of an ending to the episode and to the season, I think the episode overall was a good one. We got to finally catch up with Carol. Morgan did something I wasn’t sure he was capable of. Eugene stepped up and came up with a great plan trying to save the others.  And Rick’s confidence comes around to bite him in the ass. Because this was a…

The Walking Dead 6×15 “East” Top 5

The penultimate episode of season 6 did not disappoint. It set up so many dominoes, and we’ll get to see them all fall down in next week’s 90 minute finale. Our characters are spread out across the map. Carol has fled Alexandria. Daryl leaves on his own mission. Morgan and Rick go searching for Carol. Rosita, Glenn, and Michonne go out after Daryl. With so many of our top characters outside the walls, that leaves Alexandria a little bit vulnerable. This was a perfectly done episode to set up the…

The Walking Dead 6.14 “Twice As Far” Top 5

“Twice as Far” went from 0 to 60 in no time flat. The Walking Dead did not disappoint this week. What I thought was going to be an episode full of emotion and set up for the final 2 episodes of the season, turned out to be an episode full of intense surprises. I should’ve known to never get comfortable with this show, and to never get emotionally invested in a character. Sometimes, I just never learn. Here are my top 5 moments from “Twice as Far.” More Saviors? The…

The Walking Dead 6.12 “Not Tomorrow Yet” Top 5

This week we are back to an action packed episode. Rick brings the options to the group at Alexandria and they decide to go to Negan’s compound to take care of him and the Saviors, and to get back the Hilltopper Craig, as promised. The group forms a plan and moves into action quickly. There’s some emotional scenes, some quite disturbing scenes, a lot of action packed scenes, and definitely some heavy moments. Here are my top 5 from “Not Tomorrow Yet.”   Morgan Previously on the show, Morgan has…
