The Walking Dead: Season 6, Episode 1 Review

Image credit: http://www.amc.com
The premiere of season six really did come back with a bang, and will certainly leave you wanting to know what Rick Grimes and the gang are going to face next. The first episode entitled 'First Time Again' certainly lived up to its title as it provided black and white flashbacks throughout the episode to correlate between what was happening in the present. I thought this was a brilliant idea and really helped you understand what the gang has endured in the run up to this episode.

What I found to be really spectacular was the quarry full of zombies, and thought it was one of the most full-scale sights that we have seen yet in The Walking Dead, which was very exciting to see. Of course, following Rick's plan to lead the zombies away from the quarry, and thus away from their new home in Alexandria, was also thrilling to watch and I was left on the edge of my seat at the end because something had to go wrong, didn't it? I cannot wait for next week's episode to follow on and show us what happens next.

Also, this episode was particularly good because we got to see Rick and Morgan building their relationship again since the series actually began. I must admit that I have been waiting for Morgan to catch up with the group for a while, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for these two. Plus, I am happy that Morgan is no longer a grieving maniac, but pretty skilled with his weapon so I am sure there are more exciting zombie fighting scenes to come.

Although, we did not get to see much of the others, as this episode mostly focused on the affects of Rick and Morgan, it only excites me further to see what is next. I do have one tiny question though: where was Carl for most of this episode? I would have thought he would be a lot more involved considering the past, and obviously being Rick's son. Maybe this is something to be revealed in further episodes, we shall see.

Have you seen the premiere of season six yet, and what do you think?


  1. I've been meaning to start The Walking Dead for so long now, I need to get my act together!

    1. Oh I'd certainly recommend you watch it, you're definitely missing out!! :)

  2. YES! I think it's all about to really kick off and I hope it lives up the momentum set up by season 5. I'm not sure I like how Rick's character has evolved but I also get that it's totally necessary for him to be how he is now. I totally agree, where was Carl?! My main thing was OMG who's honking that horn?! Can't wait for next week xx

    1. Omg I most definitely agree with you Sophie, it is all going to kick off very soon and it should live up to the momentum (fingers crossed)! I kind of like Rick's character, but he has gotten a lot darker so you never know what he's going to do next! And who the heck was honking the horn as the end?! I said it could be the vicar, but that may just be a silly guess haha so excited for next week! xx
