All that mentioned, Alexandria’s plan for beating the Whisperers and their horde is totally outrageous, resulting in not solely the one greatest second of the episode but in addition a type of uncommon situations the place the present doesn’t take itself too significantly. Within the post-Scott Gimple years, this present has actually discovered to have enjoyable once more, and “A Sure Doom” is a first-rate instance of how Kang has modified the tone of the sequence for the higher. Wait till you watch the scene I’m speaking about. It’s nice, particularly since all the actors concerned play it straight.
It’s not a spoiler to say that Lauren Cohan is back as Maggie in this episode. These anticipating an enormous reunion will get it, however the episode doesn’t actually discover the place Maggie’s been all of this time or what her plans are actually that she’s again. There’s barely any time for exposition. At a brisk 45 minutes, the pacing is extremely tight, at all times shifting forward, with only some fast breaths in between for characters to speak issues out. Carol and Lydia get a very good second to handle the elephant within the room.
We additionally get to see a bit extra of Eugene, Yumiko, Princess, and Ezekiel’s journey to fulfill the mysterious Stephanie. Followers of the comics by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard seemingly know the place this storyline is headed, however figuring out the present’s observe file relating to adapting the e book, you may anticipate The Strolling Useless to vary just a few issues alongside the way in which. Our time with Workforce Eugene in “A Sure Doom” is temporary however worthwhile.
Melissa McBride is undoubtedly the star of the episode, giving us Carol at her most susceptible. I liked each single scene she was in. Jeffrey Dean Morgan stays extremely charming and enjoyable to look at, too. He shares a scene with Norman Reedus that can seemingly be a fan favourite. Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel solely will get higher and higher, too. We hardly ever see the actor in motion sequences the place he’s entrance and heart, however he will get one right here, and it’ll get your coronary heart pumping.
The Strolling Useless is again and over too quickly. However whereas “A Sure Doom” is taken into account the finale of season 10, it gained’t really be the final episode of the season. AMC has introduced six “extra” season 10 episodes to air in 2021. “A Sure Doom” undoubtedly leaves just a few doorways open to discover subsequent 12 months. Till then, followers will certainly be speaking about that ending.
