"Sing Me a Song" propels TWD forward by returning to multiple storylines and revealing substantial layers of Negan's character and influence.
Negan and Carl made for an intriguing odd couple in one of the season's meatiest episodes yet.
How all these come to a head next week is yet to be seen. But things don't look good for our heroes...The bad guy is in your gates already, and he's got the weakest among you sitting on his lap.
Filling more time is a burden this show really doesn't need.
Sunday's episode was a perfect example of how to balance servicing one character, Carl, while still showing what is going on in the world around him.
"Sing Me a Song" gives us a chance to see different sides of a villain whose only traits thus far have been gloating and posturing.
Whatever the case, "Sing Me a Song" works, and it does so by adhering to the blueprint already drawn up by Kirkman and co.
Honestly, "Sing Me a Song" felt like a long-winded way to set things up for the midseason finale. While it was great to go back to multiple storylines during the hour, I wish more actually came from it all.
This was another episode that was long for no reason that felt like the writers are on full stalling mode. Maybe they need a wake up call more than Rick?
I actually felt that this was one episode that should've stood alone from everything else that was going on. Of course, that's asking a lot from a show that's constantly setting things up.
It's the Spencer/Rick tension which holds the most promise here, with potential ramifications down the line.
Ultimately, this episode marks a new chapter for not only Carl but the future of the series.
We know bad stuff is going to go down - Michonne will behead that walker, Negan will brand someone's face - but however hard it is to look, it's harder still to look away.
