For all that has been said about the pacing of the seventh season of The Walking Dead, an event happened in “Bury Me Here” that was necessary, but not expected. Last night’s episode, which was penned by Scott Gimple, gave audiences a different type of episode with some foreshadowing time jumps and disconnected scenes that all came together at the end to give viewers a different sort of experience. The episode provided viewers with an important, yet unforeseen step on the path to the war with the Saviors.

The Walking Dead trudges on in a mostly ho-hum season. ‘Say Yes” was not the worst episode audiences have seen during this boring season. Not by a long shot. However, there were some moments that could definitely have been edited down to something more poignant. While The Walking Dead is weakest when it follows individual characters, this weeks offering was not as bad as it could have been. Rick and Michonne are out on the prowl, looking for guns and love in all the wrong places, namely, a carnival where very bad things happened.

Oh c’mon Walking Dead! You were doing so well! The first half of season 7 was downright boring, but hope was renewed during the second half as the main group of survivors got back together and began making their plans to take down the big bad Negan. War is coming and we can’t wait!….So you give us an episode about Eugene and Dwight?!?! Fear has returned as the audience braces for more long and drawn out story lines that we really don’t care about.

Now, we’re talking! After months of dry, boring episodes from The Walking Dead, things are starting to pick up. Rick and company have gone from being sad, little puppy dogs, back to the bad ass warriors we all know and love. While this weeks episode lacked in the action department, it gave us a few moments where we at least THOUGHT there would be some really cool action scenes. That may not sound like much, but for those of you who stuck around for the first half of the season, the hope of action is better than no hope at all.

The Walking Dead has been an emotional rollercoaster so far this season. It opened with a mighty bang with the deaths of major characters. But then something strange happened. The show absolutely deflated after the season premiere, to the point where the show started losing an alarming number of viewers. The show blandly followed the journey of all the separated main survivors and struggled with pacing and entertainment value. For the most part, Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s turn as Negan has been the highlight of the show, but even that has become stale and routine. But then the mid season finale rolls along and renews much of our faith in the show.

The Walking Dead has been dragging on slowly like a walker in mud since the murderous season opener. Thankfully, there have been some bright spots in the season such as “The Cell”, despite that godforsaken “Easy Street” song. Now we can add the Tara-centric “Swear” to that painfully small list of enjoyable episodes that have been aired thus far. You read that right: an episode all about Tara was actually a pretty good one. To be honest, most people had probably forgotten that Tara and Heath had gone off on a “two weeker” scavenging run immediately after the ambush at the satellite bunker.

The seventh season of The Walking Dead trudges on as the series continues to show the audience what is happening with all of the main characters since the bloodbath of the season premiere. The pace of the show is starting to bog down. It’s the 5th episode of the season and we are just now getting a look as to what happened with Sasha and Maggie. When we last saw them, Maggie was sick, both physically and with grief over the loss of Glenn. Sasha had volunteered to take her to get some medical attention from the doctor at Hilltop.

The audience for AMC’s The walking Dead is huge. Bigger even than the shambling multitude of corpses that chase its protagonists around our screens every Sunday night. Now that the show has earned its well-deserved eighth season renewal, there’s no reason to think that the end is in anywhere near in sight. The story of the intrepid band of beleaguered survivors battling undead hordes can’t be contained in a paltry eight seasons. In fact, as Show runner Scott Gimple recently hinted, It can’t even be contained by the small screen.

After the losses of the season premiere, it feels as though we are going through something akin to the 5 stages of grief when it comes to The Walking Dead. Last week, we were all still pretty depressed. This week, however, feels closer to acceptance than anything else. Acceptance comes as the audience realizes that The Walking Dead has a rhythm and pace that we all know. Some love it, while others hate it. Whichever side of the fence you sit on, you know that after a strong opener, The Walking Dead will now spend a number episodes explaining what is going on. In the case of episode 3, we were treated to an interesting view of what Daryl was going through as a prisoner of Negan.

If you’re anything like me, then you have spent the vast majority of the summer months discussing at great length all of the possible “what if,” scenarios about whose gray matter was going to see the light of day during the opening minutes of the Walking Dead season premiere this past Sunday. You also probably mapped out all the different paths the show would have to take depending on who they decided on. Some of you were way off, (you knew Daryl wasn’t going to bite it! Come on!) some of you were close, if not spot on. That’s all behind us now. Creatives Scott Gimple, Robert Kirkman,and Greg Nicotero have decided on the path they are going to take us on and the journey has begun. Tragically, that meant the brutal death of not one but, two beloved characters. Yes, they’re dead. No, this is not a dream. Their heads no longer exist.  (more…)
