The Bad Things From 712
- Pushing too hard. People have to know their limits. Whether it is exhaustion, needing to return home and drop off supplies, or just regrouping and evaluating the situation, Rick’s decision to press on makes sense, but is also more dangerous than he likely thinks. Spending time with Michonne is great, but Alexandria needs them.
- Rosita’s impatience is wearing thin. Her impulsive moves have put too many people in dangerous and deadly situations and her not changing that pattern is a danger to her, the group, and the community. She really needs to get herself under control before she drags more than Sasha into her path of death.
- Improbable gunfire. So, a walker with a gun got the trigger caught on a stick when trying to walk toward Rick and Michonne, spraying gunfire in their direction? For the purpose of the story, it’s an interesting development…but one that takes viewers out of the story for a moment trying to figure out what was happening.
- Getting out of the car was too easy. There was hope that this would be a scene where humans would find walkers to be a huge threat again. Sure. the walkers were a threat later, but this felt like the RV situation back with the walkers from the quarry and The Wolves all over again.
- Too many fake-outs! It’s great that Michonne got so emotional over the thought of losing Rick, but too many false kills will decrease the shock value of them. The last one was Heath, and there appears to be no payoff in sight for that fake-out. At least this one got some Michonne tears, I guess…
- Sasha and Rosita going rogue. It’s understandable that they both want Negan dead, but this is not the right way to go about it. It’s not surprising that Rosita is willing to do this, but Sasha should know better about how this impulsive nature can be horrible.
