Airing on Sunday, November 12, The Walking Dead Episode 8.04 is titled "Some Guy" and is described as follows: "A new weapon in the Savior arsenal proves to be a giant hurdle as fighting continues between Rick's forces and those of the Saviors".
And it looks like there will be a number of casualties and perhaps more deaths in the opening moments of episode four, Some Guy, as Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and the Kingdommers were ambushed in the closing scene of Monsters.
Still hoping to find out what happened with Gabriel and Negan? Ha! In fairness, shuffling off a small cliff is one of the few ways zombies *could* conceivably catch the living by surprise by generating the velocity needed to get the jump on them. Director (and vfx veteran) Greg Nicotero made the most of the opportunity for some splatter, and the sight of one unlucky Savior having his head chewed on by a zombie was capped by Morgan shooting the walker, its blood spraying all over the camera. When a beloved character (or a character beloved by a prominent character, as Eric was) resurrects, he or she is always, always shot in the head by a friend or lover to spare them the indignity of wandering the earth as the undead, scavenging for human remains. They'd both lost so many people, but they had both survived this long by learning to be ruthless. So the guy did.
Shockingly, by the time the battle is over, Aaron moseys back to the tree, feeling elated at his victory, but Eric is gone. Gracie is an original character created for television, though, so anything could happen with her.
At the end of the episode, Rick and Daryl encountered another Savior.
The two share several touching moments throughout the episode. Even the one relatively upbeat subplot in "Monsters" - tracking King Ezekiel and Carol's remarkable run of luck out in the field - ends with an ambush, and a huge chunk of their party getting machine-gunned.
That was without a doubt another eventful episode for The Walking Dead. A portion of the wine was Bourbon barrel aged for three months. He doesn't talk about it after, but the stricken look in Rick's eyes again suggests that he's wondering if this war is worth it, or if they're just pissing away their righteousness.
At the battle's conclusion, Rick hands Gracie, the baby from the last episode, to Eric, who promises to take care of her. Soon after, someone fires a shot at Rick and Daryl. Morales seems to think that that makes him a monster, with Rick right there with him, but that is an oversimplification. I figured Morgan would chase them down, but I didn't anticipate he'd go full Donatello on Jesus. Tell us in the comment section below. He and Jesus get in a fight while everyone else stands around watching, like some schoolyard scrap. This leads to the two characters engaging a ridiculous kung fu fight before Morgan storms off into the woods. It remains to be seen whether that will become a liability for Hilltop in future. Rick, Maggie and Ezekiel are "prizes", the only survivors Negan wants captured alive. I can bleed here fine on my own.
Later, Rick and Daryl are about to ride to their next location when a Savior shoots at them. This red blend is also brawny and bold, creating devotees with its robust, extracted flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate and caramel.
On a quick note: Can we just kill Gregory already? Gregory admits he's a wuss.
Let's hope this decision doesn't come back to bite her in the ass. After the fight, it looked like Morgan didn't even know where he was or what he was doing. The premiere sprawled just a little bit past its hourlong time-slot, but the past two episodes have ended right on the dot.
I often wonder what Ezekiel's soldiers are thinking. All the dialogue between characters just reiterates points made last week.
