So here I am, back again, recapping the hell out of The Walking Dead 😉

Season 6, Episode 1, Entitled “No Way Out”
  • So the mid season finale of The Walking Dead saw little Sam calling out to his mother while the group tried to walk through the valley of walkers undetected. Considering the scene ended and fans were left wondering what the hell happened (but not in a “cliffhanger, what comes next”sort of way), it is no surprise AMC returned to an exciting scene upon its mid-season premiere. The scenario included Daryl (Norman Reedus), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) being pulled over by Negan’s group. While this scene has been around since the mid-season finale and then expanded on over the last few days, I must admit, to see it in full actually didn’t quite work for me to start with, it almost felt rushed, like it was a flashback.
  • So Negan’s group are intimidating and manage to get the group’s weapons. Sasha wants to know who they are. The ringleader of the group (he’s played by Christopher Berry but let’s call his Sassy Sam) is like “Fuck you, we ask the questions. Oh, and we are taking you hostage as well.” Daryl reckons they have no other stash, Sassy Sam calls him on his bullshit so asks his mate to take Daryl to the back to search the truck. They spend a large and unsettling amount of quiet time there while Abraham and Sasha play the foot in mouth disease game until Sassy Sam has both guns pointed at them and is playing his own little game called, Am I Gonna Shoot You? It is at this point I am totally expecting at least Sasha to die so let me just tell you how surprised (and, to be honest, just a little bit annoyed) I am when those fuckers are blown to smithereens by Daryl and his new favourite toy, Abraham’s rocket launcher.
