Comment: First Three Episodes
Someone told me I would need to get my hanky out in tonight's episode ~ there was me thinking it was just about the demise of the lovely Daniel!
|The Lovely Daniel|
The contrast of the rousing Braveheart stuff at the beginning, compared with the reality, was so well done ~ and finally we saw the man beneath the crown, who had never really done much fighting at all. Not like the totally awesome Carol, who saved the day once more. Like with the hand grenade at the CDC in Season 1, and the explosion at Terminus in Season 5, she kept her wits about her when all around her were losing theirs. Makes you wonder if, during those long evenings in A&E when she was married to Ed, she used to read self-help books called 'Discover Your Inner Post-Apocalyptic Warrior'.
The best bit of all was the sight of Daryl steaming down the road on the Dixon Machine, after the Saviours and their Big Guns.... with Rick following. Btw, anyone else noticed that Daryl has been wearing the same shirt since he escaped from the Sanctuary?
|If he'd like to come round to my house and take it off, I'll wash it for him. No worries.|
Had I read the recent comic books I would have known that Shiva was to die, though I didn't think it was as sad as the death of Buttons the horse in S5... if only you'd been able to catch him, Daryl!
At least we won't have to listen to anymore of Ezekiel's pantomime speeches, though I felt so sad for the sorry figure he cut, as he walked through his expectant subjects at the end....
But at least you've got the guns, Rick 😉
