My biggest issue with the show has always been that it has so often given us protagonists who seem scarcely better than the antagonists, if that.

That refusal to make him an occasional villain nearly sinks tonight's episode, "Something They Need."

As for this week, it was good that the repetitive talking stopped and the action actually kicked in, and the positive upswing continued.

Its standout scene was an Avengers-style team-up between the hardened warriors of Alexandria and the Amazons of Oceanside, but what everyone is going to be talking about at the watercooler tomorrow is Sasha, so let's just start with her.

We're likely in for one long, and busy finale next week.

Heading into the season finale, this penultimate episode was uneven and very flawed.

After a solid instalment last week, The Walking Dead has reverted back to its frustrating self.

It's an old-fashioned walker set-piece that stands out as an episode highlight: as Oceanside are attacked by a horde of the rotting undead.

an enjoyable enough episode with some great-looking zombies and decent tension

It's the penultimate episode, so it's time to check in with just about everybody (the Kingdom excluded). That makes "Something They Need" a busy episode, but not a particularly compelling one.

As for Episode 15, "Something They Need," director Michael E. Satrazemis and writer Angela Kang do a nice job at tying up a few loose ends and keeping the uncertainty to a minimum.

Although the back half of The Walking Dead's seventh season has been a marked improvement to the sluggish and depressing first half, it is still falling prey to one of the show's worst traps: wasting time.

It's not that this episode was bad, it was just Morality for Dummies - an unsophisticated look at the thin line between hero and villain.

This week's episode of The Walking Dead, "Something They Need," bounced back from last week's clunker of an episode and put the series back on track as it heads into next week's season finale.

As a standalone episode of TV, I found last night's show to be very well done.

Never send a man to do a woman's job. That's the lesson this week, as we saw how to convert people to your cause in the zombie apocalypse, and how not to.

Season seven kicked off in a horribly memorable way, but since then, it's felt like we're the ones on the receiving end of Negan's mind games. The good news: The Walking Dead is finally on the brink of war.

It's not exactly a return to the golden days of The Walking Dead, but it's honestly what a normal episode this season should have looked like.

[The episode] also offered us something we needed: some answers. And while Sunday's hour certainly raised a few questions... it also addressed several outstanding ones from the past seven weeks.

Everybody knows The Walking Dead has lost its way, but so much of what once made it engaging is still clicking along. It's like a perfectly engineered car that has a bum engine.
