As it started its eleventh and last season Sunday, The Walking Dead went to considerable lengths to guarantee that even the most bored, seen-it-all watcher got an eyeful of something new — and I don’t simply mean potential zombie straphangers, by the same token.
No, in “Acheron, Part I,” we got a gander at walkers accomplishing something they never had (not to my memory, in any case… not as once huge mob).
The scene likewise restored a Big Bad to disgusting structure, uncovered the horrible organization that is the Commonwealth, indicated the destiny of a distant memory character and left in peril Maggie as well as my (our?) most loved person. Peruse on, and we’ll go over every one of the subtleties. ‘WE NEED FOOD — LOTS OF IT — NOW’ | As the hour got in progress, Daryl, Carol, Maggie and an entire wreck of our regulars took into Fort Connors to recover MREs for a stuffed and starved Alexandria.
There, they discovered the entirety of the enrolled walkers… resting. In a real sense conked out, making ZZZs. What’s more, I surmise we’ve seen zombies go still previously, however these folks were pretty much as out as me partially through some random scene of Fear the Walking Dead.
At any rate, when the pack had, ahem, stirred the dead, snatched however many snacks as they could and got back to Alexandria, Daryl heartily embraced Dog, Judith and RJ, and Maggie traded glares with Negan prior to being told by Hershel that Cole had an astonishment for her: a couple of lost individuals from their old gathering, Duncan, Agatha and Frost.
Close by, battles were starting to break out over grub — and there were more to come. The cabinet would be uncovered in seven days, Gabriel cautioned the directors. Fortunately, Maggie knew somewhere new where they could score some vittles: her old gathering’s HQ, Meridien. Of course, it was at present swarmed with the Reapers, who’d butchered a large portion of her buddies, yet it was all around loaded. “We simply need to take it back,” she said. Eventually, Daryl, Gabriel, Alden, Negan, Dog, Gage (recall him… by any means?) and C. Thomas Howell (whose Hilltopper is evidently named Roy) joined Maggie and her old group on what Rosita called “a self destruction mission.”
As night fell on the gathering, so did an entire lotta downpour. So they moved underground, proceeding to make tracks by means of the tram burrows underneath DC.
Again and again, Negan waved warnings that something was not right down beneath, yet the group was less enthused about tuning in than in giving him a role as Chris in an exclusive creation of Everybody Hates Chris.
“It ain’t working,” heaved Daryl, “you attempting to run s—t.” By and by, the gathering happened upon a mass grave — a squirmy, vivified mass grave gift-enveloped by plastic. Hello, “for what reason didn’t [that walker] make any clamor?” asked C. Thomas Howell. Apologies, I mean Roy; that is going to take some becoming accustomed to. The walkers’ throats had all been sliced so profoundly, their heads were almost cut off. “I’m going to require another pair of clothing,” said Gage’s demeanor.
Not to stress, demanded Maggie. The Reapers hadn’t done this, these walkers had been killed in the fall.
All things considered, she needed the way cleared so they could proceed — an assignment which damn close got Gage nibbled. In the wake of saving the kid, Negan blamed Maggie for playing despot and dismissing the way that whoever had cut the walkers’ throats truly may in any case be down there. “So this is a passing walk,” he finished up, “and you are the goddamn Pied Piper.” With that, he proclaimed himself out, Gage and Roy both choosing to bail, as well.
In the mean time, in the Commonwealth, as Mercer (Michael James Shaw) noticed, Eugene, Ezekiel, Yumiko and Princess were put through Level I appraisal, which comprised of an unending battery of inquiries regarding everything from their old postal districts to the quantity of solid discharges they required in a day.
(Not making that up.) After hours of this, Ezekiel snapped, inquiring as to whether he was the person in control (he was) and speculating that he’d recently been “a—opening beat cop,” which was the reason “all they needed to do was give you a pumpkin-shaded space suit, and you’re back to control stumbling with your head up your own butt.”
Ezekiel may have dove himself in considerably more profoundly had he not been surpassed by a hacking fit, the aftereffect of his, um, innocuous goiter.
Subsequently, Eugene asked his buddies to have confidence in Stephanie, who’d cautioned that her peeps were extremely careful. However, after they saw an individual detainee being dragged away for “reprocessing,” even Eugene resembled, “Alright, gotta go.”
Thanks to Princess’ snoopping, they realized exactly how to several stormtrooper regalia. Nonetheless, with the exit in sight, they passed what Ezekiel called the Wall of the Lost — an announcement load up brimming with pictures of people to be hailed “for facilitated appraisal and permission.”
Among them was a flyer looking for a person named Heath — perhaps Corey Hawkins’ person (not seen since Season 7)? Our heroes didn’t see that even a note from Yumiko’s sibling, Tomi. In case he was there, she… Well, she needed to remain. Unexpected development.
