Opening with some of TWD's most unsettling imagery to date, "Ghosts" ratchets up the tension with a heady, psychologically-driven story.
There is some incremental progress made in the Whisperer storyline during "Ghosts", but otherwise it's a bunch of uninspired or redundant character work.
Dear Eugene: Please stick to the overwritten one-liners and the inexplicable ability to provide essential intel - from zombie head counts to weather patterns - whenever needed.
The beginning of "Ghosts" gave off those same horrific vibes... It's insanely tense, and though the sequence only last two or so minutes, a clear highlight of the episode.
The meeting at the border may be one of the finest conflict scenes The Walking Dead has ever done. It's tense and taut.
Another well-made episode that is building up to the eventual war with Daryl, Michonne, and company vs. Alpha, Beta, and The Whisperers.
All the "maybe these are hallucinations, maybe not" scenes makes me wonder if I am hallucinating.
Only the sharpest and strongest writing can make up for a lack of action, and while The Walking Dead has its moments of nuance and sophistication, it's script rarely justifies the constant deceleration of pace.
The walker onslaught opening the episode is one of the more chilling images The Walking Dead has played with so far this season, creating this sense of doom as there is seemingly no end in sight.
That beginning sequence was outstanding, building tension expertly.
This was very interesting episode of The Walking Dead. I don't think the TWD writers have focused on the trauma of the apocalypse this much since Rick left. We always dealt with his trauma, guilt, PTSD, and grief, but not so much the other characters.
Ghosts didn't match the heights of the previous two episodes... That doesn't suggest this was a bad episode at all as the Whisperers wall of walkers and Negan's emergence into useful killing machine opens up some very intriguing storylines.
That was tense from start to finish.
