Forgive me, but i cannot do a TWD review without spoilers. A review seemed due, just because people seem to be losing faith in TWD. Sure, they used cliffhangers as a lure. But who doesn't? We've reached the 7th episode now and it seems as though the script is being dragged on. I believe we feel this way just because of the massive pace the end of last season and the first episode was in. You can't always skip to the dessert. The 6 episodes that have followed the dreaded executions had to be mellow. Sure, 'Swear' was a little out of the box, but it wouldn't be there if it didn't have a purpose. Story arcs are something people seem to have lesser and lesser patience with. In 'Sing me a song', Carl is shown that there are consequences to his actions. He somehow didn't get that the last time he met with Negan. Although it seemed that Carl was the center of this episode, it was actually a certified Negan analysis yet again. But that's the thing, Negan has been analyzed and over analyzed. This is to give the viewer a sense of accomplishment that they now definitely know him. Murderer, Killer, Angry? Nope. He it the 'Joker' of the Walking Dead. The Non Consequential Villain. He doesn't care whats before or after, whats good or bad. Sure, he's looking for respect right now. But his character says he wouldn't care if he didn't have it too. That's the difference between Negan and the Governer. Not the crassness, just the fact that there is no consequence. This makes him a very dangerous adversary. Just like the joker is to batman. The most powerful villain there can be. The episode wasn't anything to go crazy over. But don't lose hope yet. TWD is as good as it gets on TV.
