"The King, The Widow, and Rick" spreads itself between too many storylines, and thereby doesn't accomplish much in the process.
There are a couple of decent scenes, but it's mostly people saying stuff you already knew or doing stuff they've already done in previous episodes.
If there's one thing that watching the opening to Season 8, episode 6 of The Walking Dead drove home to me, it's that this entire season so far has taken place in a pretty compressed time frame.
A solid episode...this episode didn't feel boring, or unnecessarily "artsy."
Last night's episode was a bit of a letdown from its recent hot streak, but as a lead-in to the half-season's "third act" it serves its purpose well.
The sixth episode of The Walking Dead's eighth season, "The King, the Widow, and Rick," was particularly full of stuff that had already happened on earlier episodes of the show.
Thankfully there are some redeeming qualities here, but those nuggets aren't enough to make this episode feel like anything more than just a time killer.
The Walking Dead totally drops the ball once again with an hour that's devoid of logic, redundant, slow, and mostly a drag to sit through.
This week in Rick Does a Dumb Thing, our fearless leader attempted to win over the mercenary Scavenger group by promising them a role in building a new, post-Negan world.
It's unsure how Jadis and co will factor into the season's game plan but whether you'll even care remains the bigger uncertainty.
Another hour of this story has gone by, but it seems we've still barely moved from where we left off the week before.
Slowing the momentum down after last week's gripping, life-or-death cliffhanger in the Sanctuary was disappointing enough, but it was season-low writing that made "The King, the Widow, and Rick" a bit of a slog.
"The King, The Widow, and Rick" is an over-stuffed, boring episode that doesn't include nearly enough engaging material to make it a memorable entry.
