Ezekiel: We shall be ready regardless.
Carol Peletier: What's about to happen, it's not just a few walkers, you know that right?
Ezekiel: Yes. And yet I smile.
Carol Peletier: Why?
Ezekiel: Do I feel the supreme Confidence or is my lot, my job to simply protect such certainty. No and yes. Yes and no. And then finally yes to both! Fake it till you make it, baby. That's what I've done and what I do, I am king ...

That didn't go too well
29 October 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

Well, my last review was my most hated ever, but I'm going to keep on making reviews because I love this show and want to get my thoughts out. Anyway, what makes this episode so interesting is that it doesn't focus on a single character or even the same group of characters. This is what makes this show so great is that we get a great cast of unique characters that all contribute to the story well. It was interesting to see some fight walkers and others fight living people. They actually overlap as one scene features the formerly living people transform into walkers. The action's as good as ever.

Rick and Daryl are the most noteworthy but we get lots of great bits too. There's Carol and Ezekiel in one group and Tara and Jesus in another. They hold a guy hostage who looks a lot more like Jesus. We get a great opening as we see shots of the main characters' faces. That's also what we end on. It doesn't use the same angles however which shows how diverse the storytelling is. Most of the conflict is still caused by the humans which is why it's great to see how an apocalypse affects the still normal people. I did miss Negan though. ***1/2
