Mid-Season finale promo promised fire and flames. In fact there have been gunshots and explosions, nor is a lack of (almost) death shock in the final minutes of the episode, a must now for the mid season of The Walking Dead. As shown by previous episodes, all this is not enough.
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.
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.
We left with "Not today" and we can easily repeat it this week – and in all probability with the life to come. Having made progress where it seemed impossible, The Walking Dead slows again with an episode where, Apart from the final minutes and a few words here and there, virtually nothing happens again. And besides, wouldn't even be possible considering the short timeframes covered and the fact that we're not looking 24.
New episode, new stage. Do Not, is not Peking Express, but the seventh season of The Walking Dead. A random place in the woods for first meeting with Negan, The Kingdom, The Sanctuary, Alexandria and now Hilltop, These are the places visited in the first five episodes. It is clear that this development does not facilitate l ’ advance the plot and in fact once again the steps forward are very few.
It's been over six months since The Walking Dead has left us with that questionable cliffhanger. To want to tease you even more, This year the premiere came with about 10 days later than we were used to the timing. But tonight the victim of Negan was finally revealed and every minute he made straight to reach higher levels at presentation of man as the most evil villain ever.
If you don't love the cliffhanger, We could not follow a tv series, it our mental health. However the finale of the sixth season of The Walking Dead puts a strain on even the most hardened series addicted because another epilogue so brutal, anxiety and mysterious is hard to find in the television landscape.
It promises to be a tough week for us fans of The Walking Dead. Not only will the Season Finale with the coveted and anticipated arrival of Negan, but our emotional stability is put to the test as never before in previous seasons because a final episode so don't you'd never expected. I sent back the final minutes because he believed he had lost a key frame that would change everything; but no, I had not seen bad.
