Overall impression of TWD 802
This is the kind of episode that The Walking Dead needed after a moderately disappointing season 8 premiere.
The extreme domination of The Sanctuary that Rick’s group had during the premiere finally met a match, with the follow-up episode that gave a bit of a look into the power that The Saviors have as far as numbers, resources, and defenses.

While body counts are never good to see, they are needed in a situation like this. Losing a couple of minor characters who are connected to major characters is a great way to do that without making it all fall apart.
It was a little confusing with the stories jumping around a bit, but once the stories were told it was fantastic. It added more power to the story as a whole, just showing how much preparation and hard-work went into executing their plans.
As a whole, I didn’t care for the return of Morales. However, I’m more interested to see what happens with the kid in the crib and the members of The Kindom who are entering a situation where The Saviors know they are coming.
On a scale of 1 to 10, this episode was a 9. It’s a fantastic rebound episode from a cartoony premiere that might help draw in viewers and add more intrigue about All-Out War going forward.
The Walking Dead will return on Sunday, November 5, 2017 with season 8 episode 3 titled ‘Monsters’. With lives in the balance and plenty more fight left in the war, fans won’t want to miss a minute of the action!
