The Walking Dead has lots of female bonding, and a champion mansplainer!
We can all agree that there are certain aspects of AMC’s The Walking Dead that seem a little, shall we say, far-fetched. The most improbable of these scenarios will be reviewed here each week.
“Too Long, Didn’t Watch” Episode Recap
Sasha and Rosita scout out the Negan compound and become friends, yay! They try to break Eugene out but he ain’t interested, but Sasha gets inside (to kill Negan, we assume) and tells Rosita to leave, saying “it’s not your time, they need you.” Fortunately, Daryl is nearby. Meanwhile at the Hilltop, Maggie and Daryl bond over Glenn grief (Glief?), and Gregory and Jesus are two seconds away from a Jerry Springer-style throwdown. Next week, we still need to get this war going, and we have two episodes to do it.
I don’t know how it’s possible that Sasha didn’t know that Rosita made that necklace for Abraham. Or didn’t suspect it. Maybe Sasha is colder than any of us suspect!
Rosita’s pro-apocalypse-sex attitude is very refreshing! I’m surprised (but delighted) that a woman is the first character to mention this!
I’m not a knife-throwing expert, but the way Enid was holding that thing all wobbly and loose, it didn’t look like she could have made it stick. I would make an “I hope she does better with Carl” joke, but Christ, they’re CHILDREN, don’t be gross.
It’s clear why Rosita is so upset about Abraham, but Sasha? You barely knew the dude. And why hasn’t Sasha mentioned Bob in the last couple seasons? It would be relevant to this whole “dudes I like keep dying” discussion.
The training montage at the episode start is accompanied by mild classical music. WTF, where’s the Joe Esposito when you need it? You’re the best around! Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down!
The Saviors take the Hilltop’s doctor (who will deliver the Glaggie baby now?), but never fear, they leave behind all the medical stuff you’ll ever need…a literally INSANE supply of aspirin. First of all, that is a LOT of aspirin, you guys. Like hundreds of boxes of aspirin. Second, by now it has all long since expired. So…thanks.
Who is this asshole with the veggies? Sorry, VEGETABLES. Lord knows we have no time to abbreviate, nor to help with heavy baskets, but we have plenty of time for mansplaining and condescension.
