Whenever Negan is featured, this show gets better. The depth this character adds to TWD is exactly what this series needed. While not the main character in this episode, it is intriguing to see how a character like Eugene changes under Negans arm. As someone who has read the comics (don't worry, no spoilers!), this episode is an interesting take on that character arc. As with every 'individual character episode', this lacked a bit of depth for me. It was cool to see Dwight eventually finding out about Sherry and it will be interesting to see where the final few episodes take us till next season when surely, the war will be triggered.

+ Unique story-line not seen in the comics, which could alter the Eugene character we know and love + Eugene's credentials are backed up with his science experiments - TWD is clearly stretching out what it can from the comics so it doesn't surpass them
