The Walking Dead: "The Big Scary U" Review

The Walking Dead: "The Big Scary U" Review 


Given how long The Walking Dead has been running, and the "one lengthy film/war" aspect of the season eight episodes so far, it's easy to sense like matters are in a rut. While matters sense stagnant, while there's a "sameness" from week to week, one looks for something, whatever, out of the regular to spike the tale. this week, in "the large horrifying u," we were given that, though it nevertheless did not save the chapter from focusing manner too much, and giving manner too much screen time, to characters we do not know or care approximately.

Gregory, Simon, Regina, any of the strife inside the sanctuary - it changed into all extra or much less a placeholder. positive, Dwight should get caught being the mole for Rick's group, however, do we necessarily care approximately that once he shot Denise in the attention with a crossbow bolt? or will we care if Eugene accidentally takes the autumn for Dwight due to the fact he's each person's smooth select for the man or woman undermining Negan's plans? we virtually didn't want this extreme of a to peek inside the sanctuary proper now - even supposing it became seeking to graciously show us the alternative facet of the struggle (along with the real assembly that was happening while rick rolled up along with his "hillbilly armor").

But, like final week's "some man" and the humbling and crumbling of Ezekiel, we got to witness a facet of a character we would in no way visible before. namely, a softer aspect to Negan. Sure, this was Gabriel's high-quality fabric so far too, but declaring that dangerously indicates that Gabriel had decent cloth prior to this, which he didn't. and, like strolling dead has a tendency to do, getting to know a person, specifically, a person outdoor of the central cast, means they're equipped to die. similar to how all of a sudden the show cared about Bob right before he was given bit or when Denise started speaking about her youth right before she was given killed, Gabriel were given his time inside the sun right here, with Negan, and then got (presumedly) a bit all through their break out via the herd. right in the midst of his key cloth, he became a goner. as show formulas cross, it is unnerving.

The Walking Dead: "The Big Scary U" Review

Gabriel will nevertheless be around for one greater episode, in order that he can, in reality, die with cause, like he desires greater than whatever, but that doesn't make up for the reality that his individual turned into by no means allowed to get off the blocks. ever given that we met him, he's been solely described by way of his big act of cowardice and now, proper whilst we catch up with him on the end of his existence, he is nonetheless basically all about that moment. his sole directive now's to die in a blaze of sacrifice as a way to locate a true reason. It is a flat trait this is definitely born of his one massive mistake. It is also one this is, definitely, sort of lazy for the only solidly religious individual of the display. Positive, I nonetheless matter maggie too, but that detail of her persona turned into by no means the whole crux of her presence adore it has been for Gabriel.

No, the massive moment, the shining man or woman scenes this week went to Negan, who becomes a very different Megan. okay, certain, he nevertheless controlled to throw in a d*** and/or balls reference every little while, and he nonetheless had that cocky swagger to a point, however, this became a very distinctive color for him. First of all, we noticed "irritated Negan" at some point of that meeting. unhinged negan. but he also wasn't so off the rails that he changed into willing to surrender his principals(?) approximately simplest killing folks that mattered to ship a message. He was nevertheless all approximately sparing the little folks. His "sources."

Then, in the surrounded trailer, Negan was given to take his act down a few notches. We noticed "subdued Negan." He became part con-man/component survivalist. he diagnosed that he was in a bit of a pickle, logic kicked in, and he allowed himself to come to be a little vulnerable round Gabriel - whose presence, whilst not enjoyable on its own, allowed Negan to shed his armor a smidgen. we needed to take it all with a few grains of salt though considering that, you know, Negan's the type to immediately examine everyone else in an attempt to in no way examine himself in the metaphorical replicate, however, the excellent elements of negan are whilst you do sense like he can see thru the haze of his personal bulls*** and connect with someone else on a deeper degree. while he is in a position to talk with you and not just at you.


Gabriel was out to take Negan's confession and via this, we stuck the smallest glimpse into Negan's backstory. The comics have been delving into it these days, of course, however, right here we learned about his beyond paintings with children (seems like a faculty) and his unwell spouse. Evidently, with all people's apocalyptic takeaways being unique and vital, the lesson negan learned via his personal tragedy turned into to no longer be soft and mawkish. he wouldn't ever pass complete psycho, but he'd additionally by no means once more permit himself to hesitate whilst it came to tough selections. it is a lesson that involves, basically, shutting off your center feelings which will continue to exist, and protect your heart - and we've got seen human beings like Carol, Daryl, and Morgan do it to various ranges (Morgan is especially horrific at figuring any of this out).

The Walking Dead: "The Big Scary U" Review

Without Negan within the sanctuary, and most fearing him useless, things started to interrupt down in the manufacturing facility partitions - enough so that it helped prove Negan's point about him being the handiest aspect stopping each person inside from giving in to their personal dumb natural tendencies. rick, meanwhile, brushed up towards some sedition in his personal right whilst Daryl desired to trade the complete plan and bomb the hell out of innocent human beings. Daryl's absolutely shut himself off from remorse this year, with reference to anyone in the saviors' camp, and even as it truly is been an interesting factor to observe, his combat with rick felt empty honestly due to the fact we have already visible  of Rick's crew get right into a large 0-sum brawl over mercy a few weeks ago.

Rick vs. Daryl must have felt vital. It needs to have intended something. It's been pretty cool looking them group up for this specific section of the struggle, however, in the end, this changed into just some other character trying to stray from the plan. how did such a lot of people depart for this task without clear directives? The first Jesus wanted to spare a dozen armed saviors, at an awesome chance to himself the complete squad (idea: how about Jesus gets to shield them all in the hilltop 24/7?), and now Daryl wanted to go rogue and blow the entirety to hell? I simply don't know why all people concept this combat might be impactful or meaningful when they already gave us Jesus vs. Morgan first? it becomes any other combat about the same precise issue. also, it wound up amounting to nothing, in the long run, a stalemate, because rick detonated the bomb and the 2 of them simply huffed and gruffed it off.
