One More Videos
It may have started off slow, but this dark, depressing side quest turns out to be the most compelling season-ten bonus chapter so far.
You're left with the sense that we no longer know what Gabriel will do -- and that's more than one can usually say about The Walking Dead.
Gilliam, Marquand and Patrick were all tremendous in "One More" and the writing, direction, music, cinematography were all top-notch. If this show could be this good consistently, I might look forward to watching it more each week.
Ross Marquand and Seth Gilliam get a chance to flex their acting muscles a bit more, as well as have fun with each other... Their adventure is largely about the strength of perseverance, and it works as a solid standalone.
The hook is a bit of a lighthearted excursion, the chance for some gags and some male bonding, and we certainly get that... then we get uncomfortably dark.
Everything was going just fine until the episode dusted off a far too common Walking Dead trope of the gang meeting another emotionally scarred nut job.
From the moment Robert Patrick steps into frame, he's an arresting figure to watch.
"One Time" acts as a stand-alone episode, and while one might call it a "filler" episode, the episode did what Fear the Walking Dead has done so well recently, which is to tell a intimate character story focused on a small number of individuals.
I loved this episode, right up until the murder, but I'm going to fully admit my shock and disappointment is entirely my own issue, not the show's, because the scene is true to Gabriel's character.
Aaron and Gabriel have never been my favorite characters, but "One More" was a perfect way to shed light on some of the finer details of them before throwing them in at the deep end.
