As always, I’m breaking down Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead over at The Mary Sue. I hope you’ll join me over there!
This season of The Walking Dead has been moving at a pretty frenetic pace, and this week’s episode, “Self Help”, slowed things down a bit with a more character-focused episode. If you’re not caught up on The Walking Dead,this is your official spoiler alert.
“Self Help” focused solely on Abraham’s group as they began their journey towards Washington D.C., and I’ll be honest, this was probably my least favorite episode of this season. Though, to be fair, after last week’s episode, I don’t think I would have been happy with any episode that didn’t continue the Beth, Carol, and Daryl story. Last week’s episode ended with the ENORMOUS cliffhanger of Carol being wheeled into Beth’s hospital, and all I could think during Sunday’s episode was, “Wait though, what’s going on with Carol?”
Regardless, this episode did still bring us some really important back story to Abraham, and Eugene dropped a giant bomb on everyone at the end of the episode…
