Last night’s ep, “Time for After” offered powerful performances, astounding dialogue, and a great action sequence of Rick with a lesser version of Winslow. Eugene struggles, continuously so, on how to proceed–on how to be a Savior without getting anyone else hurt. Josh McDermitt delivers a fantastic and compelling performance as the faux scientist, giving life to the struggle on what should be done, how to proceed, and what is right.
Christian Serratos also has a powerful moment as Rosita, for what seems like the first time ever, being a voice of reason to the group. Sadly, her message is mostly fell on deaf ears, resulting in potential disaster for AHK (Alexandria, Hilltop and the Kingdom). Last night, she proclaimed, “I believe in Rick Grimes.” As an audience member who fell in love with this story because of Rick’s tale, that resonated heavily with me.
The mid-season finale will air this Sunday, at ninety minutes, and I have no idea what is in store. I do think, however, given the many loose canons on the Grimes side of things, it will not bode well for one of our leads. Maybe more.
