| December 13, 2016

Negan is back in Alexandria for another confrontation with Rick, Rosita has obtained a Single Bullet to take him on, and a powder keg is ready to blow in this week’s Walking Dead. Also, there are some Zombies around. Toward the edges.

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.

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. Yiiiiiiikes.
