Last time I saw Rick Grimes, he was in an RV with a herd of walkers encircling the vehicle. Tonight, he is running toward the safe zone yelling, “Open the gate!” How did Rick escape his impending doom? Things went from bad to worse as the walls are now surrounded by thousands of walkers. This episode comes as a reckoning for the Alexandria survivors. Everything that Rick told them in the beginning stares the community right in the eyes, especially Deanna. Clearly, ignorance is not bliss. Everyone receives a large helping of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Jessie takes a stand, Deanna concedes leadership to Rick, and there is still no sign whether Glenn is alive. At some point, the wall is going to fall.
Things are building toward the mid-season finale, and there is “No Way Out”.
One response to “Review: The Walking Dead – “Now””
I cannot agree more. The writers of the show took the easy way out by skipping the herd of walkers. It may be possible that they revisit the RV scene later, most likely when they get around to discussing Glenn’s death as the two events happened at around the same time. The creators of the show keep saying how “nobody is safe” yet they have not killed any major character since Hershel. Don’t get me wrong, I very much hope that Glenn is alive but I believe that one main character should be killed before the mid-season break, and I hope that this person is Carl.
