This post will cover the mid season premier of the hit TV series on AMC The Walking Dead.
***CAUTION – THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW***
As mentioned above, there will be spoilers… Lots of spoilers, such as Daryl Dixon saving the day twice, and Carl getting shot…. You knew what you were getting yourself into when you clicked the link. So lets dive in! Welcome to Season 6 Episode 9 No Way Out.
Daryl saves the day #1
The episode opened just as we have been teased the last few month with Daryl, Abraham, and Sasha driving along in their new tanker truck before running into a group of bikers who work for a guy named Negan. Great now we can finally learn more about that notorious character from the comics!
Well the gang was ready to kill off Abraham and Sasha when Daryl unveil his newest toy. The missile launcher Abraham found the last episode. After collecting themselves the group hops back in the truck and makes their way to Alexandria not expecting what is to come.
Also continuing from the last episode we find the heros making their escape from the hoards of walkers that have over taken over Alexandria and taking a trick from Michonne to help them blend in with the walkers the group covers themselves in blood and begin their escape.
All was going fine as the group slowly walked until Sam began having doubts and feared being eaten alive. Unfortunately for him the fear was enough to make him cry and the walkers quickly noticed and pounced on him quickly.
His mother also began to cry and to was quickly devoured. Rick looked in horror as he watched his new found love being eaten before his eyes. He came back in time to help free Carl from her grip but that was enough for Ron (Sams brother) who was already angry with carl and he pulled a gun. Michonne tried to intervene but was too late.
As in the comic Carl took a shot to his right eye. At the end of the episode there was hope he would survive.
Alexandria fights back
At this point Rick is past his breaking point. While Denise attempts to save Carl’s life right quietly grabs his axe and heads out into the mob of walkers and begins mowing them down. After a few minutes Michonne and several other survivors join Rick and begins taking taking a stand to save their community.
The courage of the other survivors encourage two other characters who are usually cowardly and tend to stay away from the fighting. Those of course being Gabriel and Eugene. When told Eugene he can stay away from the fight he responds “No one gets to clock out today, also this is a story people will tell”
The full group converges and begins slicing and dicing through several hundred maybe thousands of Walkers never letting up.
Daryl Saves the Day #2
Glenn meanwhile attempts to save Maggie who is stuck on top of platform. While leading the walkers away all begins to look lost for Glenn who finds himself trapped against a wall. At the least second Daryl, Abraham, and Sasha make their heroic entrance and Abraham shots down the Walkers surrounding Glenn.
Daryl comes up with a plan to save the town and unloads the fuel in the tanker into the lake and pulls out his new missile launcher and ignites the lake into a raging inferno. The fire attracts the Walkers who begins to walk straight into the burning lake burning by the hundreds.
At the end, the group has beat the Walkers and won their town back. No doubt they won’t have much time to relax with Negan nearby now. All together we believe this to be the best Walking Dead episode yet. It had all the Walkers we could handle and plenty of action from beginning to the end.
Let’s hope the show keeps it up. Who knows what will surprise us in the next episode and we can’t wait to see how Rick handles the situation with Carl!
