The Walking Dead Recap: Out of This World. Literally!


There were fights. There was a Russian satellite sighting. There was a forest fire. There was romance.

And there was the ongoing threat of The Whisperers on The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 1.

But was there a reason to keep tuning in, after a handful of subpar years for a show that used to dominate the ratings and the discussions at all workplace watercoolers?

Let’s find out, shall we?

The premiere opened with a gigantic training montage, depicting nearly all our favorite survivors getting into formation to do battle with a horde of water-logged walkers from a shipwreck at Oceanside.

Aaron was leading the charge — and they came across like a very well-oiled machine at the outside; everyone had a job and the organization was impressive.

Behind the front line of spiked shields, there were archers, spear throwers, Magna rocking an axe and both Michonne and Judith putting their swords to good use.

Well done all around!

Due to the devastation of the fair massacre, it was evident they wanted to be ready for another attack from either The Whisperers themselves… or the massive horde Alpha and her followers threatened to sent in their direction.

Cut to Judith and RJ playing on the beach, where they discover one of the still-disturbing flesh masks in the sand, sparking significant concern from the adults.

Michonne, of course, didn’t want to start a panic, thereby agreeing to send out a group to scout the surrounding area.

As she and Aaron were on their lookout, they went back and forth on whether they were truly “the good guys” or “the villains to someone else’s story” — before he crossed over into Whisper territory to take out a handful of walkers.

Michonne was pissed he defied Alpha’s warning, while Aaron was equally angry she obeyed it in the first place.

While these two fought it out, Aaron said he’s “god damn sick of being nice,” something Michonne said never worked for her either.

“Smart did,” she told him. “They have a nuclear weapon and we don’t,” she added, referring to their horde. “Believe me, I hate this too.”

Thinking of all those who have died, Michonne went back to the original question at hand, saying “we have to choose to be the good guys, even when it’s hard.”

While all this was taking place, fans got caught up with a few other characters as well. To wit:

Kelly is losing her hearing, a development that was taking an emotional toll on her. For understandable reasons.

Connie was helping her deal, reassuring her everything will be okay — and saying being deaf “is not a disability, it’s a damn superpower.”

Connie also had some romantic sparks with Daryl, who had been learning sign language to communicate with her better.

As for Carol?

She was been spending her time at sea … away from Ezekiel, from whom she split in the Season 9 finale after the death of Henry.

They had a very awkward reunion on the dock before she ran off for some one-on-one time with Daryl, who adorably referred to her his “best friend.”
