THE WALKING DEAD: SEASON 6 EPISODE 9 REVIEW
The Walking Dead returned with its mid-season premiere last Sunday. It was the ninth episode of the sixth season, made under the direction of Greg Nicotero and written by Seth Hoffman. Titled “No Way Out”, the episode was quite a spectacular premiere and is being touted as one of the best episodes of the show so far. The episode was quite an emotional ride with exquisite camera work and great acting.
The story resumes itself from the moment where Nagan’s goons have stopped Daryl, Sasha and Abraham. But most of the story of the episode focusses on events that take place inside the walls of Alexandria that have been breached. The fight that takes place is sure to be remembered, with a zombie-apocalypse like situation. The story is quite gripping for a TV series.
Nagan’s goon have surrounded Daryl, Sasha and Abraham. The goons arequite confident of their manpower, not noticing that the trio is somewhat bemused at the sight of them. One of the goons take Daryl to the back of the truck to rummage through the stuff, but instead ends up being worked upon by Daryl, who then blows off the head of the goons with a RPG.
Meanwhile, inside Alexandria’s breached walls, zombies are everywhere. The situation is that of a disastrous miasma. Humans are scattered and hiding wherever they can. The vision of thriving civilization seems more impossible with every hour. Out of desperation, Rick decides to lead a group through the zombies to reach the armory, but needs to improvise due to large number of zombies. They decide to get to the quarry to get hold of their cars.
Rick leads his group through the zombies while he and his team members are covered in bloodied bed sheets. Sam cracks under pressure and starts making noises due to which he is attacked by the zombies. Jessie too, is caught and eaten alive by the zombies. To free his son from her grip, Rick hacks off Jessie’s hand. Infuriated by this, Ron takes a shot at Rick which he misses, as Michonne quickly kills him with his katana. We then realize that the missed shot actually tore through Carl’s right eye as he falls while calling for his Dad. Rick quickly takes him to the infirmary, where Denise starts operating him. Rick goes out and starts fighting the zombies to draw their attention away from the infirmary. Soon, everyone else joins the fight and the Alexandrians eventually win over the undead.
Carl is alive and well. So is hope for the people of Alexandria.
