Overall impression of TWD 806
As a whole, this episode of The Walking Dead actually pushed the story backward, but by design. The plan that Rick had laid out is not being followed by his people and his plan to bring in Jadis and The Scavengers was one of the most misguided things he’s ever done.

The highlights of this episode were when two characters were together on the screen talking about humanity. The dialogue between King Ezekiel and Carol was fantastic and built what will likely be a fantastic story for the two going forward.
I loved the interaction between Siddiq and Carl as well. Learning what drives Siddiq to do what he does was so interesting and seeing Carl go against his dad’s wishes to help out this person in need, assist him on his quest, and even invite him to Alexandria was fantastic.
The bad side was a lot of the other material. So many people going against the group plans caused so many problems in the past and it is amazing just how disloyal and selfish many of the characters who have been around a long time really are.
As a whole, this was a mostly forgettable episode that was only really used to set up a major conflict for the midseason finale. It will likely be seen as a lot of filler, but there are some really good scenes among the rest of the fluff.
Grade for season 8 episode 6: 7.2 out of 10.
