Welcome back to Walking Dead Weekly. Last night’s episode, Not Tomorrow Yet, was probably the most brutal to date. You might need a drink, a hug, or something stronger. Before we get to all that,
Say it aint so: Last week we started off with Abraham and Sasha, kind of parting ways, then Abe went back home and got it on bigtime with Rosita. This week, Abe tells Rosita he is leaving. I can’t take this kind of emotional roller coaster. Especially when he tells her he was only with her because he thought she was the “last woman on earth”. Really? I can’t even. Neither one of them died–yet. It’s not going to end well. I warned you.
Preemptive strike: Rick holds court at the church and lays out his plan to hit the Saviors before they hit them. Morgan is the only one who vocalizes that he wants to talk first.
Morgan situation: We got a situation here. It’s brewing. Morgan and Carol had a few words over it. While she says she let it go, there is something that is haunting her. She took up smoking after she chastized Mrs. Neudermeyer from doing the same. You could see it’s bothering Morgan. At the end of the episode he is welding something. More on that later.
Tobin kiss: Carol sat down next to the man and he let her know that he thought of her as more than a “mom”. Then he showed her. I was cheering but at the same time I was like, wait, no. What about Daryl?
Daryl needs some ass: Everyone is hooking up, it’s been a long time coming. Daryl needs some ass. I can’t put it any other way. I would not be shocked, nor would I disapprove if he went for someone like Ross. His sexuality has never really been defined. I thought he was getting close with Beth, then, well, that ended.
Jesus knows the way: In, that is. Jesus pulled up his scarf and disappeared, only to reappear inside the bunker. He’s pulling up the scarf like that is going to make you forget about his hat or long hair, or ridiculous long coat. He knows the way in, and that might mean something.
Blood’s coming: The scene with one of the Saviors and Gabriel was classic. It reminded me a little of Tombstone. Love how Gabriel ended the dude with an “amen.” Such a righteous ass kicker now.
Questions: Why do they still keep taking Maggie? This week it cost them. Carol would not have been in that situation if she didn’t have to guard her. I personally don’t know how someone gets the drop on Carol, but it is what it is. It will be interesting to see how they get out of it. Especially since Carol is the person to pull them out of the shit. Heath and Tara go off right before the Savior comes out, maybe they will see something and double back? Maybe Jesus uses his super hero powers?
Building a better jail? Is that what Morgan is doing? We see him welding something. In the background you see a steel frame around a doorway. It seems like he is in an abandoned house. The house they use to hold people? Someone joked on Talking Dead that he should make a jail and crawl in it. Is he reverting back to that? Or is he preparing for possible prisoners?
Where’s Daryl’s crossbow?!? At the end of the episode we saw a dude try to escape on Daryl’s bike. Last time we saw it, it was the two “ex-Saviors” riding away on it, and with his crossbow. It should be there right?
Love triangle: Now that Abraham left Rosita, will he move in with Sasha? How will Rosita take it? I hope they don’t take the easy way out and kill one of them off. Will Sasha even be interested? She didn’t seem like it, unless she was separating herself to see what Abe would do. Love is so confusing. Even in the Zombie Apocalypse.
Zombie kill of the week: Again, not many zombies killed this show. A whole lot of living humans bit the dust. Nothing real spectacular. There was however, one pretty historic kill–Glenn killed his first human of the show. 80 episodes in, give or take. He buried his knife into the skull of a sleeping Savior. I felt for him. He then took a kill from Heath who was obviously uncomfortable with the task. This wasn’t fun, or cool. It felt like a part of Glenn died, and it probably did. It’s not something that should be celebrated, but should be recorded for what it is.
