What is this sound you hear? Likely to be an audience the walking Dead says in unison “finally!” Because a certain character we hated from the moment they were finally introduced turned into Walker Chow. But let’s not rush to the happiest of endings – happy for it we, In any case. Let’s first set the table, so to speak, for the main course.
Early on in New Deal, the confrontation between Daryl and Lance’s forces ends with Carroll’s timely arrival with Pamela and Mercer. Carroll, as hinted last week, has struck a deal with the governor of the Commonwealth that would allow her and her friends to jostle for supplies to rebuild their communities while Lance replaced Sebastian in the hot seat. It was all well and good for Maggie and Negan & Co. But not too hot for Commonwealth residents. So, Max takes matters into her own hands, tricking Pamela’s son into becoming his usual D-baggy…and secretly registration His cries about how the citizens of the CW are too stupid to realize that the game is rigged so that the poor will always remain poor, and the rich will get richer.
Next, Max asked Eugene to play the tape over the speakers at a Founders’ Day event. In no time, a riot broke out, which became even more chaotic due to the machinations of Lance from behind bars. It turns out that he killed the guards’ staff Shera and Calhoun on Founders Day so they could bring them back to life and wreak havoc. And Yao boy, that’s what they did.
Knowing very well that it was Max who scored, Sebastian chased after her until he saw an opportunity to direct an infantry at her. She might have been bitten, had he not rescued Eugene and pushed the zombie at Sebastian, who screamed for help and no one in the crowd was willing to give it to him. In the end, he is bloodily and fatally bitten at what he has to do in series history as one of the most satisfying deaths.
In other developments… | When Lydia and Elijah took off with Aaron and Jerry to check on Oceanside, we learned that the kids had become sweethearts. Although Annie’s amniotic fluid was high – and Annie’s transformation greatly changed Negan’s perspective – she remained determined to make paths out of the Commonwealth. Just as Judith struggled to leave another home, Daryl struggled for his role as a surrogate parent. Ezekiel told Carroll that he would stay put and “help the people of another kingdom before it collapses.”
