Il promo del Mid-Season finale prometteva fuoco e fiamme. In effetti spari ed esplosioni non sono mancati, così come non è mancata la (almost) morte shock nei minuti conclusivi della puntata, un must ormai per i finali di metà stagione di The Walking Dead. Come hanno dimostrato gli episodi precedenti, tutto questo però non basta.
For the first time I have not watched The Walking Dead during the airing of 21. And not because I couldn't miss the final of GFVip (the sooner the 21,45 There was no hope began), but because it was easy to guess that would have been the umpteenth episode boring. I was wrong and the opening led by Ilary Blasi was the right rewards.
This episode is a competition to see who takes the worst decision, at the end it's hard to decide who to give the not coveted. Surely no one removes the writers, responsible for everything we're seeing with immense effort in weeks (not to say for months). We jump from one place to another for 40 minutes without anything happening to relevant, no step forward, on the contrary, If you do not turn on themselves, It is much more likely to jump back.
Finally Negan! Since it appeared on our screens, each episode of The Walking Dead which is lacking seems to be missing something. Especially after those disappointing that we left behind, his return is a breath of fresh air. Not all of the episodes are devoted to a single character were much, but this is the best of the season without difficulty.
The first three minutes are enough to frame this episode as nearly identical to the previous two. Motivational speeches, gunshots at random, forced moments of reflection. It's a bit like press replays in three weeks. Seguo The Walking Dead da quando ha debuttato, I defended when was criticized in the second season, I proudly bought the action figure of Daryl and I'm sorry that things are so, but the negative parable seems to have no break and no end.
A video game, This is the episode 8×02 di The Walking Dead. A shooter where to arrive at the finding of a central object or to a destination, you have to shoot down whoever is equal in front of. Generally there you got a map or a compass that will allow you to figure out where you're going and you're able to recognize your potential mates. In this installment no. Indeed, It reinforces the suspicion that the series in General doesn't know where to get, circling around the same things.
The return of The Walking Dead marks the achievement of an important milestone for the show at AMC: the series won the episode number 100. Remember when you started looking at it 8 years ago? Had debuted on Halloween night, the first season had only 6 episodes and never imagined that we would arrive at an altitude 8 seasons. A destination that is undoubtedly pleasure, but that poses with greater force the question with which we left in April, how much longer can last?
The foundations of the earlier episodes were not encouraging, the promo for "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life" on the other hand was a hotbed of tension can turn up the hype. The result reached by the Season Finale is a compromise between these conflicting feelings because overall it is a nice episode, with twist, scary moments and emotion. But perhaps he's missing something; something that cannot be because there was its building or just because they somehow need pull ahead until next season.
"Something they need" in better times would have to be a mediocre episode, Today it becomes more than good. At least hot, because in hindsight there too we find the slowness and lack of tension that have accompanied us during this season after the premiere. In both storyline followed they do try to make us stay on your toes, Yet at any time the feeling is that everything will be alright, that although certain characters we seem to have now a short life, they pull up to the imminent Season Finale.
