THE BOOB TUBE: THE WALKING DEAD – OVERKILL TO THE MAX

Tyreese

No way to talk about the return of The Walking Dead without spoilers. So if haven’t caught up, read no further.

–SPOILER ALERT!–

Yes, Tyreese bites the big one. That’s it basically. After Carol’s death, Rick decides to bring Noah back home with tragic results. Everyone’s dead, houses are burned and deadly walkers prowl the estate. Noah is devastated but nothing prepares us for Tyreese’s demise.

The episode is presented in a dreamy Terence Malick-esque fashion as Tyreese is caught in a pre-death fevered state that is both poignant and horrific. Personally, I think this was all unnecessary – all that has been achieved is a sense of frustration. The episode does point the way forward for the ever-decreasing group of survivors but has the death count paused for now?

Mm??
