After last week’s amateur hour, I was really hoping that this week, with a return to Daryl, Abraham, and Sasha, would provide us with something a little more solid. Ultimately, that’s exactly what we got: something a little more solid, but not much more than that. Click through for my snapshot review of Episode 606.

Episode: 514
Airdate: March 15, 2015

Showrunner: Scott M. Gimple

As the group attempts to settle into their new “normal,” we just know that things can’t possibly be as smooth as they seem. There have been a few hints of underlying issues with the Alexandria community since the very beginning; in fact, Aaron and his presentation seem just about the smoothest part of the whole place (then again, that’s what you usually get from brochures advertising retirement communities). So, with the inevitable entropy that is the hallmark of The Walking Dead, tonight, three shows to the end of the season, seems like just about the right time to throw the monkey wrench (spanner for my British readers) into the works. And while we do, indeed, get some of this, it all happens in what is, for my money, the best paced and edited episode of the season so far.

Steve and Dan TWD 2

In a more-potty-mouthed-than-usual episode, Steve and Dan complain about rough-around-the-edges Rick and homosexual stereotypes. Contains mild comic-book spoilers and juvenile tittering. Does becoming the voice of reason mean a death sentence for Michonne? Why is Glenn channeling Dirty Harry-era Clint Eastwood? Will the group pass Aaron’s audition? And can you trust a man who doesn’t like apple sauce?

Episode: 509
Airdate: February 8, 2015
Directed by: Greg Nicotero
Showrunner: Scott M. Gimple
Written by: Frank Darabont (creator); Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, Charlie Adlard (series of graphic novels); Scott M. Gimple (written by)

With the shocking (if not terribly surprising) and heartbreaking end to the first half of Season 5 already over two months in the rear-view mirror, it’s just about time to pull out the zombie survival kit and get ready for the latter half of the season. Starting this coming Sunday, we’ll get to see what the group decides to do, following the climactic events at Grady Memorial Hospital. I suppose it’s only appropriate that the episode is, in fact, named “What Happened and What’s Going On.” While I’m not going to go too far with prognostications here (and frankly, a knowledge of the comics would seem to be largely irrelevant for the most part, what with all the changes already made by Gimple and co.), I will have a look at the preview videos already released, and analyze the first two minutes of Episode 509, released two days ago (February 3) by AMC. Click through for the videos, and my commentary.

Will Abraham find Eugene’s pressure washing technique useful in getting out, out that damned spot? Tune in to find out.

Airdate: November 9, 2014
Directed by: Ernest R. Dickerson
Showrunner: Scott M. Gimple
Written by: Heather Bellson, Seth Hoffman (episode); Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Tony Moore (graphic novels)

Last week was a change of pace as we got to catch up with a long-lost member of the group; this week is another focus episode, again following a group that’s split off from the main bunch. While last week felt a little like a hiccup after three amazing episodes to begin the season, how will tonight’s turn out, with a much more action-oriented crew involved? Click through after the break to get my take on “Self Help.”

Directed by: Jeffrey F. January
Showrunner: Scott M. Gimple
Written by: TBD (episode); Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Tony Moore (graphic novels)

Bob was left in something of a tricky situation last week – no leaving his plight on the back-burner, as it were. Gareth and his group of remaining Termites, the self-described Hunters, will need to be confronted, lest Rick and the gang go the way of Bob’s left leg. So how are they going to get out of this one? Click through for my complete review.
