Review: The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 6 “The King, The Widow, And Rick”

Initially this episode proposes a clear sense of direction, pushing forward with the final assault on the Saviours and in safeguarding the multiple communities. Unfortunately, however, any momentum is quickly lost as the show retreads familiar, and honestly simply tedious, themes of someone’s innocence, who is ready to fight, and the emotional drive to succeed. Contrived and predictable conflict no so much as erupts as it slowly arises from its slumber, further weakened by the fractured structure and desire to cover way too many perspectives. This is a typical ‘The Walking Dead’ episode. The writing is not atrocious, nor is the direction. But it just plods along, not really concerned with audience interest or enjoyment. 5.3/10
