Last weekend, after spending a little time convincing the Alexandrians that the deal they’d made with Hilltop was worth the risk, in The Walking Dead episode 612, Not Tomorrow Yet, Rick and the crew went after the Saviors by night. Things went off without a hitch… almost. So what did Undead Walking readers think? Keep reading to find out.

After a very fast paced episode full of bloodshed, and finally, Carol being featured prominently after several episodes without her, where we see her both smoking and kissing Tobin (though not at the same time), viewers seemed much more pumped up – whether happily or unhappily – and therefore voted in much larger numbers.

After Knots Unite (episode 611), only 73 people voted in our poll. Over the course of this past week, on the other hand, 214 of you voted. 76% of voters gave Not Tomorrow Yet 4 stars, back up from 64% last week. This is still 2% lower than the previous week’s episode, just to give you an idea.

14% of voters gave Not Tomorrow Yet 3 stars, compared with 25% last week. Both the 2 star and 1 star ratings came in at 4% this week, compared with 11% for 2 stars last week, and no 1 star votes last week.

Average Reader Rating: 3.66 stars out of 4

Here’s what a few fans had to say about episode 612, aka “the one where they killed the Saviors in their sleep and Maggie and Carol were kidnapped.”

Andrew Dawber – 4 stars for me… I’ve never been so anxious watching TV in my life.

Victoria Hodges – I love the character Gabriel now.

Ricktatorship – 4 stars… this was a really good episode. I loved the fact that we didn’t have a 3 episode build up before the attack. It was also refreshing to see Carol show compassion and that she has a potential love interest and the struggle for Glenn and Heath. I liked Abraham before this episode. IDK how he broke up with Rosita. That was cold.

Hershel’s Walker Head – 3 stars. I enjoyed it. Carol became human again. Gabriel went all Gene Hackman Poseidon Adventure. Glenn’s no longer a kill virgin but still a decent human being. The episode felt very John Carpenter, particularly the Saviors base scenes, which I liked. The invasion was folly though, and showed Rick as a bit stupid and that he hasn’t learned anything.
