I kind of liked this episode
11 March 2017 | by pjgs200See all my reviews

I don't usually write reviews for the Walking Dead, but I felt like this episode could use a more positive one. I get that "Swear" isn't as good as other episodes of the show and doesn't advance the plot too much, but that's not what it's supposed to do. This episode had some good character development for Tara and introduced the group from Oceanside, which I'm sure will make a return at some point to fight the Saviors. Alanna Masterson always does a good job with what she's given, and this episode was no exception. I think that Tara is a cool side character who is a lot more lighthearted than the rest of the people on the show.

All in all, Swear isn't the best episode of the Walking Dead, but it's certainly not the worst episode either. It's lighter in tone than most episodes and tells a pretty good story too. 7/10
