The bad things from TWD 805
- Longest intro ever. The Walking Dead usually does a nice job of teasing an episode before rolling the opening credits and sending the first commercial break to fans. This week, it was a LONG opening, with credits not rolling until over 15 minutes into the episode.
- Savior-vision! The view looking up from the view of the member of The Saviors who was stabbed during the vehicle chase was distracting. It felt like they were trying to make Rick and Daryl look like superheroes instead of giving us the whole scene. I don’t care for that.
- Father Gabriel making his move. I get that Gabriel sees Negan as a bad man, but it seemed like the two were having a good conversation and there was plenty of learning to go on from both sides. Taking that chance with all those walkers around was bold and unlike him, and not the best move tactically.
- Daryl going rogue. Daryl is one of the most inconsistent characters on the show. He rarely respects leadership and often times gets the group in trouble because of his individual actions. This time, it resulted in him and Rick fighting and nearly killing each other because of explosives. Not good.
- Fitting Rick and Daryl into every episode no matter what. Episodes can stand on their own without their two cash cows being involved. I get that many fans want to see these two characters in every single episode, but it isn’t something that should be absolutely necessary if it feels out of place or messes with the pace of things.
