"Twice as Far" has a few powerful moments, but overall lacks enough focus or depth to make up for jumbled storylines, a pointless death, and a frustrating finish.
The last 15 minutes of "Twice As Far" wind up having major consequences, and it makes a dumb episode into an aggravating one.
It grasped for emotional weight, but came off as confusing. It was, in short, a bad episode.
What was the point of all this? Do we really need episodes focused on people like poor dead Denise and penis-biting Eugene, who are at best minor figures, and not particularly interesting?
Ninja [Morgan] may be, jailer too, but there's nothing he can do to stop Carol escaping into the great, scary beyond.
This episode impresses so much. It's the second killer episode in a row, so to speak, and also the second to really revolve around the female characters ... and Eugene. But mostly the women.
After the pressure cooker of last week's episode, The Walking Dead returns to the relatively wide-open spaces of Alexandria, where life marches on at its normal pace.
"Twice As Far" is as familiar as an episode of The Walking Dead can get.
[The prison] will play a vital role in Alexandria's future (if it has one).
One imagines the final two episodes of Season 6 will flow into any potential endgame much more smoothly, it's just a shame that "Twice as Far" had to suffer so much for it.
Eugene's attack on Dwight was one of those ridiculous and unexpected scenes that makes the show so fun-silly but memorable.
"Twice as Far" was a little disjointed, trying to get a lot of Rick-less story in before the Season 6 endgame, but there were still some nice, powerful scenes.
Between some solid character work and very aggressive survival tactics, there is a lot to admire, but I only wish the ending didn't feel so out of place.
