"Open Your Eyes" fulfills the potential of the foundations laid earlier in this season with a surprising character death and some ingenious twists.
I didn't see the turn with Dante coming and the episode pulls a clever trick in obfuscating it.
Episode 7 has left everything to play for, but -- more importantly -- The Walking Dead is starting to feel relevant again. If Siddiq's sacrifice was the cost for that uptick in quality, then so be it.
Well, it had to happen some time. After weeks of minor deaths and building tension, The Walking Dead delivered its first, truly shocking moment of the season on this week's "Open Your Eyes."
It's redundant to say that an episode of The Walking Dead is dark, but "Open Your Eyes" is dark even by The Walking Dead standards.
I've got to admit, I did not see that one coming. I thought Dante was weird and off-putting from the first episode, but I never pegged him as a Whisperer.
An intense episode, on several levels. Things are about to get wilder as the mid-season finale approaches.
As interesting as it was to see Siddiq dealing with the trauma of losing his friends, it was starting to get repetitive and the fact that he was finally able to realize who was partly responsible for said trauma was a short-lived breath of fresh air.
The groundwork the series has been laying finally paid off.
This is one of the best episodes of The Walking Dead season ten. The whole season has been good, but this one had me on the edge of my seat. I haven't reacted like that since the season seven finale.
This was, for the most part, a very good episode of The Walking Dead, and I'm glad that they're still giving us surprise deaths.
Although "Open Your Eyes" isn't good, it's not completely bad. A lot of it is just fine, and there's still some deft storytelling and some excellent character moments scattered throughout it.
This episode brings Siddiq's story to a natural and honest, but perhaps premature, close. The show has reached a solid place where its grasp on character is used to inform the story in a way where anything can happen next.
