Love, sex, violence, and terror is how I can describe this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.
That is because there were so many stories that progressed the plot forward. To start, Princess and Mercer are finally together as a couple. Comic book fans were waiting for this for a long time. I do however wish that they showed Mercer and Princess becoming official rather than a post-sex scene. I believe that they made up for it later in the episode as Mercer opened up to Princess about killing his own men. It takes for someone to be in love to reveal that piece of information and that was showcased on that scene.
Remember early on in The Walking Dead’s winter return when it was lead to believe that Maggie and Daryl were on opposite sides? Turns out that was not the case. Lance and his army decided to search The Hilltop (without a search warrant may I add) for any clues. During the search, he encountered Hershel. The confrontation lead to Daryl making a threat towards Lance and dropping an uncensored F-Bomb in the exchange. I love the scene as it shows the level Daryl would go on to protect his own family regardless of what his position is. I can also say that It was a heartbreaking moment for Hershel to stand near Glenn’s grave!
Another couple that is officially together is Max and Eugene. At least The Walking Dead showed that these two were building their relationship from the start. Sure, it was from the comics, but consistency matters to me. Also to add, too bad that Ezekiel and Tomichi’s mission did not go as planned at first. Carol did save the day however which lead to them getting the medicine to the ones that needed it.
I can also say that I was annoyed that Lance offered Leah a job seconds after he found out that she was the one who stolen their weapons and killed some of The Commonwealth’s soldiers. Hopefully this mission Lance offered Leah backfires! Solid episode of this week’s The Walking Dead.
