Quotes

[after killing David]
Negan: [to a henchman outside Sasha's cell] Hey! Get, uh...
[he looks at Sasha inquiringly]
Sasha Williams: Sasha.
Negan: That is a beautiful name.
[to the henchman]
Negan: Get Sasha here a new T-shirt.
[he kneels down and cuts the rope off Sasha's hands]
Negan: I'm sorry you had to see that. Sorry about the rope, too. Probably overkill, but you did cause one hell of a fracas last night.
[he looks at her for a moment and chuckles]

Tomorrow is Gonna Be a Big Day
26 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tonight was one of those episodes that attempted to build up the next episode in a dramatic way, but didn't hit on all the levels it probably should have. We caught up with almost every section of the cast, but with very little return.

However, there are a few things that worked well for me, one being Sasha's arc. The whole "Rapey Davey" thing in the beginning felt out of place, especially because most of The Saviors have felt unhinging in less disgusting ways. I didn't need to watch that creep nearly rape Sasha, a different approach would have been more appropriate, but I guess it wouldn't have led to Negan's proposal. But besides that whole sequence, I loved every time Sonequa Martin- Green was on screen. She barely said anything to Negan or Eugene, but you can see every emotion in her face and body language. I particularly found it devastating hearing her plea to Eugene for a weapon to kill herself (only to find out she was likely playing him, and then consequently see him give her a poison pill instead). Just seeing Eugene's face and hearing her voice is all we needed.

The rest of the crew went to Oceanside to take their guns and attempt to get their group on board with fighting the Saviors. Only half was successful, getting all of their guns, but this whole thing felt a bit anticlimactic. We didn't get a battle with any consequences against Oceanside, all we got was a quick and predictable spiel with some walkers. I expected more out of an Oceanside conflict. At the very least, we could have gotten a shocking (even if unimportant) death, ala the Beth conflict at the hospital in season 5. No matter, I'm sure Oceanside will come into play down the road.

The other thing worth noting is Gregory's little mix-up with a walker and Maggie. Did anybody actually think Gregory would kill Maggie? Or better yet, him step up and kill a walker? The man is so pathetic, which pretty much guarantees that he will make an awful and devastating choice next week that could lead to something horrible happening. I happen to think he was the "little bird" Negan was speaking of to Sasha early in the episode. Figures he would be the guy to mess everything up.

So it was a frustrating episode in some regards, but perhaps an episode better suited as part 1 of 2 as next week's episode surely will have some major stuff going down. Dwight's switch to the good guys is exactly what I hoped for. I love Austin Amelio in that role, and his turn can only mean good things for his character. The question is, will it all be too late for him. I think the march to war is nearly over. War is coming.

+Sonequa's acting

+Dwight's turn

+Negan monologues

-Oceanside was anticlimactic

-Creepy Savior was unnecessary

7.3/10
