the-walking-dead-season-6

Episode: 610
Airdate: February 21, 2016
Directed by: Kari Skogland
Showrunner: Scott M. Gimple
Written by: Angela Kang, Corey Reed (episode); Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Tony Moore (graphic novels); Frank Darabont (creator)

The bad news: tonight’s episode does not maintain the high standard put up by last week’s episode. The good news: that bar was pretty damned high, so even falling short this was a very enjoyable episode, with some nice twists and more than a few surprises. Click through for my complete review.

Episode: 609

After a serious downturn in episode quality over the latter half of Part A of this season, I was beginning to lose faith in Messrs. Gimple, Nicotero, and co. And then they give me tonight’s episode. From an opening that absolutely blew me away, through a second act that just ramped things up, and ending with a third act that put nearly everyone we know and love to watch in grave peril, this episode had it all. Having just finished watching the episode twice, I can’t say for certain whether this is due primarily to what I just saw, or if the poor showing of the last several episodes is having an undue effect on my opinion, but this felt like one of the best episodes I’ve seen of TWD ever. Time and further viewings may adjust this initial impression, but I suspect it won’t fall far short of that assessment. Click through for my full review.

Best episode ever? If not, I’d have to firmly place this in my top two or three, right up there with last season’s premiere and follow-up. After last week’s relatively slow start (albeit with the sudden tension of the mysterious air horn at the very end), I was wondering how long it would take Gimple and co. to ramp things up in this sixth season. Wonder no more: things just got a lot hotter in Alexandria. Click through for my full review.

Last week’s episode left us with a lot of hanging plots, not the least of which involve how Deanna is going to take her son, Aiden’s, death, and how Rick intends to deal with the wife and child abuser Pete, who just so happens to also be the community’s doctor. Things are just a little too “normal” in Alexandria, and there’s a sense that the wheels are about to come off for several members of our group. Click through for my review and synopsis.

Two episodes to go, and a couple of real cliff-hangers left over from last week’s episode, means that we should be in for a tense and action-filled show this Sunday. In one of the clips below, there are several freshly dug graves – who’s in them? Click through for preview videos, and my ideas on what’s going to happen this week.

With strong reservations, Rick and the crew decided to follow Aaron to Alexandria last week, with some – such as Maggie and Michonne – being in favor of following Aaron, and others – Rick, Carol, Daryl – being less enthusiastic. But although they do have their differences within the group, there’s one thing for certain: when Rick refers to the group as his family, he means it with all his heart, and there better not be anyone looking to mess with them. So now that they’ve arrived at the gates of the Alexandria Safe Zone (as it is called in the comics), is this going to be Rick’s Ithaca? Or is his voyage not truly complete yet?
