Spoiler warning: warnings spoiled.
Hello WordPress, Kevin here bringing you my review on The Walking Dead 7.5 episode, “Go Getters”. I rather like this season of TWD so far as it’s being mostly driven by plot. I know past seasons dwelled on character development and moral humanity, but this season just blends those aspects without as much “filler” content. And by “filler”, I’m referring to a lack of bland subplots as deviations from the source material have always been a part of TWD. Anyways, onto my thoughts on the show.
What I Liked:
It was great to see the cooperation between Maggie and Sasha with how Maggie is becoming a stronger character, as opposed to Maggie being distraught by Glenn’s death earlier in the season. I enjoyed the subplot of Enid and Carl’s little romance growing, with a good laugh I got from them using the roller blades. I liked seeing how Greg cowered before Simon and the Saviors. I felt the whole scene was well played out and acted between Simon and Greg. IE, I liked how Simon channeled his inner General Zod and made Greg neal. Lastly, I loved the scene where Jesus knew Kung Fu, and Maggie reminded us all that she grew up on a farm and knows how to use a tractor as a deadly weapon to kill the walkers and crush that car with the loud music.
What I didn’t Like:
I spent all of this episode being reminded how much of a selfish and cowardly prick Greg is, since we haven’t seen him since last season where he was a sexist jerk towards Maggie. I can’t believe Greg was going to sell out Maggie and Sasha to the Saviors, that’s just solidifying my hatred for this character. Other than Gregory being a prick, I had no qualms about this episode. Even if it lacked a lot of action, I still found this episode to be top notch.
I’m looking forward to seeing how things pan out next week with Jesus and Carl infiltrating the Saviors compound. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t get them both killed by Negan and Lucille.
