This week’s episode was a little longer than normal. There didn’t seem to be a huge reason for it, the episode dragged a little for me, but overall it wasn’t bad. We saw a lot of Negan and Carl this episode, and some of other characters too. However, I’m glad most of the story line went to Carl. It’s been a long time coming, but Chandler Riggs is too good of an actor, and Carl is far too interesting, for there not to be a story line specifically for him.
First, let’s talk about the characters who got some screen time, but weren’t really the main focus. The first we see is Michonne. She’s out by herself, clearly up to something. It seems like what she was doing in this episode will lead into something later on. In this episode we get glimpses. We see her luring Walkers, and by the end of the episode we’ve seen her create some kind of roadblock with the Walkers so that she can ambush a Savior and force them to take her to Negan.
Also during this episode we have Carl going after Negan, Jesus trying to find out where Negan is staying, and Rosita planning on going after Negan. So far it didn’t work for Carl, so I feel like they’re building up to all these characters being unable to single handedly take down Negan which will then prompt them into putting more effort into joining forces with other communities like Hill Top and the Kingdom. We don’t get to see whether Michonne is successful or not, but again, that’s something we’ll probably see in a future episode.
With Rosita we see her plan is somewhat working out. She convinced Eugene to make her a bullet, but we still don’t know how she’s going to get to Negan or if she’ll be successful. If Michonne gets there and fails, and/or Rosita finds out about Carl failing, then it’ll either spur her on to do a better job or she might back down, at least until a bigger plan can be put into motion.
