Though lacking significant plot progression, "Go Getters" presents a satisfying female perspective, strong character choices, and a rare glimmer of hope.
While "Go Getters" offers several familiar sights (yes, we get our third Savior collection over the past four episodes), strong acting and solid character arcs make it one of the better episodes of Season 7 so far.
Glenn lives on in [Maggine] -- n the child they'll have, but also in the person she is now. Which is why it's significant that this is when she fully claims her married name.
Thankfully, The Walking Dead didn't leave us hanging with Maggie's fate the way they did with Glenn's last season.
The takeaway from all of this? Even if Maggie doesn't realize it yet herself, she is ready to be the leader who can unite all three camps to overthrow the Saviors.
Sunday's episode was largely about the continuing fallout, as the Saviors returned to the Hilltop to reassert their dominance. But there was one bit of good news: Maggie and her baby are doing fine.
The dialogue was often hard to believe despite the episode featuring some of The Walking Dead's strongest actors. Still, Lauren Cohan, Xander Berkeley, and Tom Payne often struggled because of on the nose lines.
...a lull Season 7 can't really afford, especially when the series wants so desperately to enter a new phase of its heightened brand of storytelling.
"Go Getters," hones in on a non-Alexandria locale, Hilltop Community. And thankfully, it gives most of its denizens an easy go of it after last week's exhausting Negan bullying session in "Service."
Despite having the dorkiest title of any episode yet this season, "Go Getters" gives The Walking Dead's viewers something they've been missing for this past month: closure in the wake of Glenn and Abraham's deaths.
Sunday night's episode of The Walking Dead may be the worst episode ever made in the long-running zombie franchise. I certainly can't remember a time I've laughed this hard at the bad writing and terrible plot devices.
What makes "Go Getters" such a good episode for [Maggie] is that it returns to one of the core truths of TWD: What makes our heroes worth following is that they don't give up the spirit of what was good about the pre-zombie apocalypse world.
I wanted to care more about Maggie taking on that leadership role and diving more into the Hilltop as a community, but really, I was left bored by most of it and eagerly ready to just get on to the next episode.
