The Walking Dead, Season 7, Episode 3 Review

Here’s this week’s list of things from The Walking Dead that made me want to feed myself to a walker.

Who’s The Boss?!!
This episode started with the opening credits to the 80s sitcom, “Who’s The Boss?

Were the writers using symbolism to tell us that Negan’s the boss? Because, if so, I think we got the point when he bashed Glenn’s head in with a barbed wire bat. Did we really need Tony Micelli and his feather duster to drive home that point?

Or, maybe it was a tribute to Mona. She was walker-ish 30 years ago. By now, she must be dragging her leg around looking for some poor kid to eat for lunch in the backwoods of Atlanta. Right?

Or, maybe they were trying to show us the true horror of the zombie apocalypse because the only thing worse than having to shoot your best friend in face to keep him from eating yours, is living in a world where the only thing to watch are Who’s The Boss? VHS tapes.

That totally awesome 80s montage!
I bet someone from the network called the writer’s room and said, “Sooooo research shows that we may have stayed on Glenn’s mangled eye for just a beat too long. We need to lighten the mood this week. How about turning the opening scene into an 80s montage? We think it will really add some fun to watching a hungry burn victim steal food.”

Darryl’s Spa
Please! He had a private suite with free dog food and music entertainment! In some countries this is a treat. Americans are so whiney. 

If they really wanted to torture him they should have forced him to watch Fuller House on Netflix. Or Season 2 of The Walking Dead (we get it, you’re on a farm!) Or anything produced by Ryan Murphy. 

Dwight’s Wife
I’m so confused. Did Negan steal Dwight’s wife? Or did Dwight trade her for an egg sandwich?

Tom would totally trade me for an egg sandwich—especially in a zombie apocalypse. And I wouldn’t blame him. My idea of roughing is not being able to fast forward through the commercials. I’m sure after a few days of listening to me whine all it would take for him to leave me on The Saviors doorstep would be the promise of some Cheetos and a luke warm beer. And honestly, I’d be fine with that because look at Dwight’s wife. She obviously has access to mascara and smoothing serum for her hair. 

Does snot smell?
I watched this whole episode while I was horribly congested and I couldn’t stop wondering: Has anyone with a cold ever retained their sense of smell long enough to know if snot has an odor? It’s a logical question, no?

    When I have a cold I can’t smell anything so I guess I’ll never know the answer to your snot question because I’m sure as hell not going to smell anyone else’s snot! Love the Spew TWD review!!!
