Welcome to Michael Cudlitz' directorial debut on The Walking Dead and the episode was a little all over the place.
I guess we were supposed to forget that Michonne was the target of an assassination attempt just one episode ago and wonder why she's still being so hard. Don't worry Michonne; we remember. We get a little subtle confirmation that Yumiko and Magna are a couple, we find out a little (or a lot) about what makes Luke tick and we find out that Connie has super vibration senses and can tell when a herd is coming. However, these new people are still exhausting, if for nothing else, the fact that we have to remember all of these names. Surely we can lose a couple of them in the mid-season finale next week.
Names we won't have to remember? Daryl's dog's, because his name is Dog. That is the most on brand thing ever. Daryl decided to take up residence in the woods after his search for Rick's body didn't come up with any results, but Carol wants him to leave his hermit life and travel back to Hilltop to stay with Henry so he can keep a balanced perspective in life. Almost immediately, Daryl scoffs at the idea, but a well placed scolding from Henry gets him to change his mind. Question: who is out there tying up Dog? We know it wasn't Daryl. Hmm.
Lastly, it seems the communities aren't as isolated as they seemed last week. While leadership from all three are not in official contact with each other, reluctant President Paul Rovia -- who has taken over since Maggie decided she wanted to leave go be with Georgie's group -- and Aaron have secret meetings to try to keep the lines of communication open. They also are training in extreme parkour or whatever, and no, that is not a euphemism.
