Critic reviews for What Happened and What's Going On
Part of the fascination with The Walking Dead, of course, is that unlike many shows, it offers no continuing hints of where it could end, if it ends at all. Sunday's episode reminds us that's the conversation that matters.
You might be a good show, The Walking Dead, but our relationship would be as toxic as blah blah blah you get the point.
Stylistically, the episode was bolder than usual, upping the montage, flash-forwards and surrealism to almost arthouse levels.
The visual poetry of Tyreese's memories, as well as the many unexpected cameos make tonight's premiere a memorable one, albeit not tremendously exciting for the season itself.
Before The Walking Dead I would have never expected a zombie show to look so lovely at times. It fit the mood tonight.
