Critic Reviews for Go Getters

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.

It was a finely wrought hour of slow-burn television -- though the show was careful not to test our patience too much... amid the gloom and meditative angst, it was encouraging to know the Walking Dead hasn't lost its appetite for macabre derring-do.

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.

...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.

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.

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.
