To conclude the bumpy season built around the war between Rick and Negan, the season finale would be expected to heavily feature gore, violence and the loss of main characters. However The Walking Dead did not follow this and instead ended up with a bit of an anti climax.
This weeks episode was riddled with guts, death, nostalgia, action, but most arguably; a great flaw in logic throughout.
The Walking Dead episode titled 'The Key'centres prominently around Rick (Andrew Lincoln), the Saviours and the Hilltop. The episode featured the introduction of a new group which I'll discuss later one and a showdown between Rick and Negan as well as further betrayal by Simon (Steven Ogg).
Last week's episode was relatively pleasing, it was consistently engaging and in all honestly, this episode was much the same. The episode titled 'Dead or Alive Or' was an enjoyable enough episode despite little of huge significance happening. However long term, the recent character death and twist is likely to develop into an interesting thread.
Last weeks episode of the popular AMC show honestly didn't impress me too much, however the episode titled The Lost and the Plunderers to me was a much better episode than its predecessor.
I have never personally been sure about tribute acts as I feel they will be underwhelming, however both the AC/DC and Thin Lizzy acts (Live Wire and Limehouse Lizzy) were impressive!
Episode 8 of season 8 of the AMC show met with backlash over the shock 'kill' of one of the central characters. Episode 9 had to do this infamous choice justice and execute the mid-season premiere well to engage the fading fans.
