Evaluating the Villain: As in previous weeks, it’s hard to measure Negan’s growth as a villain if he doesn’t show up for work. It’d be one thing if actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan were only a supporting cast member, contracted for a certain number of episodes per season and playing a diminished supporting role. That would explain the mind-boggling choice to have him in only two episodes this season so far. But as the biggest, baddest villain in the series, his absence is inexplicable. It’s also befuddling after last week’s episode. “The Big Bad U” proved that TWD can do better, and the only takeaway from “The King, The Widow, and Rick” is that the show is choosing not to. Perhaps it’s related to budget constraints or adaptation issues, but whatever the reason it makes for frustrating television. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 6: The King, the Widow, and Rick
That said, the show has demonstrated it can still be good when it wants to be, which is what makes the last two episodes before the mid-season break so crucial. They’re The Walking Dead’s final shots to prove that the season has been worth watching, and that the dead-ends and constant bottle episodes have been part of some grander, meaningful design. The show has been flailing ever since Negan’s introduction and Glenn’s death. If showrunner Scott Gimple wants to prove that there’s been a point to it all, then last night’s episode, “Time for After,” is the time to start doing it. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 7: Time for After
A meditation on violence The same criticisms that apply to Eugene and Ezekiel's arcs this season can be said of Maggie, Jesus, Daryl, and Dwight as well. The Hilltop crew believe they’re going to help Alexandria force the Saviors’ surrender, but they get stopped on the way by a large convoy led by Simon, who breaks the bad news that Negan is free. Simon forces Maggie and the others back to the Hilltop, senselessly killing one of her people. Probably no one watching this show remembers that character’s name, but the death leads Maggie to finally disavow Jesus’ pacifism, and shoot one of the Hilltop prisoners in retaliation. Not only is she making a point that she won’t tolerate Jesus’ tactics any longer, she also plans to use the imprisoned Saviors as a bargaining chip to keep Negan and Simon at bay. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 8: How It’s Gotta Be
All of this made me feel sympathetic toward Richard. I understand his plight as a character, and I can relate to feeling how he feels here. His methods may be wrong, sure, and he might have been better off fleeing the Kingdom than attempting to get himself shot in the face for the greater cause. But his logic is sound and his heart is in the right place. What I don’t understand is Morgan. As a non-violence advocate, he strangely seems not all that bothered with the Saviors for nonsensically shooting Benjamin over a single piece of fruit. No, the real problem is Richard for some reason, who is desperately trying to convince everyone around him that they’re a single transgression away from being murdered. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Redemption Club season 7, episode 13: Bury Me Here
