Things are chugging merrily along toward the midseason finale in Walking Dead land, and this week’s episode features a buddy comedy of sorts, between Negan, smiling despot and brutal murderer, and Carl, our ever-less-pint-sized would be assassin.
Less of a laugh track atmosphere than you might think though.

This week TWD takes us back to two characters who disappeared midway through last season after the raid on the satellite outpost, reminding viewers that all the grief, pain, and prolonged cliffhangers have taken place over two weeks in the narrative.

After last week’s grueling, disjointed, semi-hallucinatory psychic and physical beating of most of the main cast (and all of the audience), this week on The Walking Dead took a detour into an seemingly pleasant community looking out for its own.
If only they were Zombie Tolerant too… alas. They most certainly are not. More below.

The Walking Dead continues this fall, for better or worse (and from a Zombie Rights perspective, pretty distinctively worse). But one could be forgiven for wondering if the show is giving up on making its audience scared of the Undead in favor of a bat-wielding psychopath, at least judging from this first episode.
More after the cut.

And so another Fear the Walking Dead demi-season draws to a close!
The first half season memorably ended with the characters reaching the ocean, but not salvation. The second opened with LA in flames and closed with a cult in flames.
All very dramatic.
Which is why it’s strange that this half season ends with such a pronounced shrug. Not even a whimper… just a shrug.
Exactly how I feel each week after watching FTWD. Very compelling.

A double episode this week! Apparently.
Which is weird, really. Why… did someone not look at the calendar until recently and failed to realize the premiere of regular Walking Dead is coming up?
At any rate, the first half, ‘Wrath’, has made a lot of headlines, and for once, it lives up to its name all right.
