The Walking Dead: Alone Review (Mania.com)
Review Date: Tuesday, March 11, 2014
We gonna keep it light this week because The Walking Dead continues to bore and waste time.
Bob, Sasha, and Maggie started the episode on their way to find Glenn. They ended the episode on their way to find Glenn. So basically everything that happened in between was a waste of time, except for Bob getting some screen time and a cool sequence with all three of them fighting zombies in the fog. Was anything that happened here really necessary? No. All three of them are now on their way to Terminus hoping to find Glenn. Yay!
Daryl & Beth’s part of the episode was pretty good though cause at least something happened there. It gets even better if you follow the comics since you might have a clue as to who were the people scavenging through Rick’s house a few episodes ago.
Daryl is bonding with Beth, showing her how to use the crossbow and track. While they are out they find a funeral home with a little stash of fresh food meaning someone still lives in that funeral home but who? Everything was going fine until the infected from World War Z show up. The zombies in the funeral were fast as hell, those suckers were running which proves there are no zombie rules in this show.
Daryl & Beth split up, with Daryl sending her outside while he remained to lay waste to the World War Z zombies. When Daryl finally makes it out of the funeral home to look for Beth he sees she’s been kidnapped and a car is driving away with her. He goes all T-1000 and just starts running after the car. He runs all day and night until he finally stops due to exhaustion. While on the floor he’s approached by the same group of guys that Rick ran into. Who are these guys? Are they from Terminus? Why do they kill/choke each other out over sleeping beds?
After that we get a Glenn sighting. Guess what, he’s on his way to Terminus too. Yay! Next week we follow Tyrese and Carol on their way to Terminus. Hopefully something interesting happens.
What did you guys think? Leave comments below and please put up a spoiler alert if you’re going to talk about the comic book.
