The Mary Sue Post: Walking Dead Season 6 Recap!

I am SO excited to have The Walking Dead back in my life. I missed that show so very much, and after checking out the spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, I only missed Rick and the gang that much more.

Happily, we’re back, and this season kicked off with a bang, a generous usage of band-aids, a walker-parade, and helium-filled balloons. Weird, I know. BUT the episode was fantastic, and I’m over at The Mary Sue talking about it. I hope you’ll join me there to talk about it.

Oh, and remember:

spoilers

…when we arrived back at Alexandria in the season 6 premiere, we find Rick calling the shots, acting as hardcore as when we saw him in the latter episodes of season 5. This episode is structurally different than most, as it bounces back and forth through time, showing flashbacks in black and white. The flashbacks start essentially the moment after Rick pulls the trigger to shoot Pete, and end with a mysterious horn blaring to derail the group’s attempt to address the issue of an enormous horde barreling down on the faulty walls protecting Alexandria.

The flashbacks largely center around the tension back at Alexandria. Several Alexandrians are very unsettled with Rick’s new role among the community, especially after shooting Pete, and they decide that they need to develop a plan to overthrow Rick. The group of dissenters is led by a man named Carter, played by the one and only Ethan Embry. Carter decides that the only way to make Alexandria safe again is to take out Rick, and he leads a group of people to try to develop a plan to kill our favorite sheriff…
