6.12 Not Tomorrow Yet

Very few shows on television can match The Walking Dead when it comes to lớn tension. In last week’s episode, where basically nothing of serious danger happened, there was a lot of developing tension. There was nothing to get really tense about, but it worked because this is a universe where letting your guard down, starting a new relationship & giving a monologue about how you’ll never give sầu up or let go of your humanity or whatever, usually leads immediately khổng lồ certain death. Like the walkers that dot the landscape, trouble pops up at the worst times for the survivors.

That’s why Riông chồng and company, after a town meeting, decide to lớn take the fight khổng lồ Negan and the Saviors, rather than wait around for them to lớn find them, lượt thích The Wolves or the Woodbury folks did before them. It makes sense, particularly for people who have sầu been around the post-apocalyptic bloông chồng a few times. Get them before they get you, get some delicious food courtesy of the folks at Hilltop, và eliminate a threat. Everyone seems to lớn agree that this is a good idea, except for Morgan, who hasn’t learned anything from his attempted rehabilitation of the captured Wolf who nearly made off with Denise.

This week is split up very effectively between characters preparing for the assault on the Saviors và with the assault on the Saviors themselves. It’s interesting to see how different members of the group prepare themselves mentally for the end. Some, lượt thích Tara, confess love in an attempt to lớn hide the truth: she’s done this kind of raiding before & she didn’t lượt thích it. Others, lượt thích Abramê say, decide to lớn take the opposite tack and destroy their girlfriend’s self-esteem in one of the most brutal break-ups I have sầu ever seen on television; it takes a uniquely cold individual to lớn tell someone that they only got together because he thought she was the last girl on Earth right before they all go off to potentially die. As for Carol, well… she finds a little time lớn pacify herself with a little domestic activity before sneaking in a make-out session with Tobin.

Once again, on this show, any of these things means that someone’s more than likely going khổng lồ die. Carol finds a love sầu interest and gets a great bit of advice from Tobin (a wonderful scene for both Melissa McBride & Jason Douglas) about how she’s basically been the mother lớn everyone in Alexandria; Glenn và Heath discuss how they’ve sầu never actually had khổng lồ kill someone và both are very nervous about it, & Tara/Jesus/Gabriel have sầu a nice moment in the vehicle where Tara confesses khổng lồ Gabriel and Jesus that she’s been involved in situations lượt thích this before, & Gabriel và Jesus both have sầu to lớn talk her down và let her know that now is different, because she has something khổng lồ fight for.

Full credit lớn Seth Hoffman, who wrote this week’s script, because it’s really good stuff. Gabriel gets lớn redeem himself as a Scripture-quoting action hero (kudos khổng lồ Seth Gilliam for really making that scene work much better than it could have) và for actually having Glenn undertake underhanded behavior while still being the upstanding nhân vật of the show just the same. The interactions between Melissa McBride và Jason Douglas also work great, because we’ve sầu seen how Carol the character has changed. She might be middle-aged Rambo in a blood-splattered ponmang lại, but at heart, there’s part of her that just wants to make cookies for everyone. She’s the uber-mother; she couldn’t save sầu Sophia, she couldn’t save sầu Lizzie and Mika, và she couldn’t save Sam, but… she’s trying, & she’s doing the work that notoàn thân else can bởi vì, from killing Wolves lớn building the town’s morale via beet và acorn cookies.

When the attaông xã is planned và executed, the episode shifts gears from a character-driven episode full of mini-arcs to lớn a full-on action movie. It’s lượt thích the assault on the building in The Raid, but on a smaller scale và with a lot more stabbing sleeping Saviors. It’s incredibly tense, because at any moment, any of the rooms they open up could contain killers that aren’t asleep, and when they bởi find the sleeping Saviors, they could wake up at any point before the stabbing. Gregory Nicotero has put together a brilliant episode, and once the sneaking ends & the assault rifles come into lớn play, the episode gets even better, with multiple “guy shot at the last second by a frikết thúc of a protagonist” scenes, all powered by a propulsive John Carpenter-style score from Bear McCreary.

Of course, lượt thích most episodes this season, Not Tomorrow Yet has a happy ending, but not for very long. The assault is expertly undertaken by Riông chồng và company, & even the inevitable alarm doesn’t actually get anyone killed. However, it’s a pretty undermanned station, if that’s all of the Saviors… so of course, that’s not all the Saviors, và after shooting a guy off the bachồng of a motorcycle, Rick & company find out the hard way that they’re not alone, và that Carol (gulp) & Maggie (double gulp) are now in the hands of the enemy (in this case, Alicia Witt, if my voice ear isn’t off).

So much for a quiông xã và clean assault on the Saviors. Nothing ever goes right for Riông chồng, even when they get lucky. At least there were two more great musical tracks used this week, with the show opening with Poor Old Shine’s Weeds Or Wild Flowers và closing with Hozier’s Arsonist’s Lullabye. All of a sudden, the apocalypse now comes with a subscription khổng lồ No Depression magazine or your local adult album alternative sầu public radio station.
