Mute the psychobabble, shriek at the stupid horror - and pass the popcorn.
We're going to see the word 'epic' thrown around a lot in the days to come about this episode, and it is certainly that.
At episode's end, we get a second strangely beautiful digression, the sort that will keep those who prefer their brains behind the scenes instead of on a plate tuning in for another week.
The entire [ending] sequence is remarkable in how it achieves both shock value and earnest delight.
What works here, and works so well that I'm almost willing to overlook the dull bits, are the straight out horror sequences.
It was certainly a daring way to end a season premiere - you could practically hear the show's creators proudly yelling, "This ain't broadcast TV!"
With no coherence in theme or characterization, what's left of The Walking Dead is a goofy exercise in classic network dramatics.
It's the character work that makes the story and there were times - just as there were last season - when we found ourselves rolling our eyes or fidgeting in our seats.
The Walking Dead returned tonight, and they kicked off the episode doing what they do best: Unmitigated zombie mayhem.
