The Walking Dead recap, Season 8, Episode 10, “The Lost and the Plunderers,” Aired March 4, 2018
It was another week that we inched closer to a final confrontation between Rick and the Saviors. Now that we have gotten the emotions and crying (mostly) out of the way, we can continue on with the second half of season 8. Here are the best moments (and one I didn’t like) from the 10th episode, “The Lost and the Plunderers”
4 Best Moments
#1 Negan and Simon. A little trouble in paradise? Looks like the problems with Rick are causing a little tension between Negan and one of his top guys. Honestly, Simon might have a point though. Maybe they should cut their losses and just kill everyone. Negan isn’t down for that though, and put an end to that talk real quick in a very Negan typical/awesome fashion. Something tells me this won’t be the last time Simon and him have issues before this is all over however.
#2 The end of the trash people. First off, I love Simon. Easily one of my favorite characters on the show. His entire interaction with the trash people was just great. BULLLSHITTTTT. Oh, Simon. You just knew this situation wasn’t going to go well because those people are nuts and he was pissed off. And then he just snaps, and good for him. The garbage people needed to go. Not just because they kept switching sides every other episode but the way they talked was horrible to listen to. He does leave Jadis alive, giving Rick a little time to talk to her. Of course he then leaves her behind and pretty much offers he up to the walkers. Pretty cold Rick.
#3 Jadis. Yeah she talks like a psycho and her haircut is a mess, but damn girl. I thought she was for sure dead once Rick left her, but nope. She manages to round up the Walkers and lead them into a machine that turns them to mush. One of the grossest ways they have killed on the show yet, but it was pretty cool. Probably not the best idea to leave her though, Rick. She is for sure going to come back for vengeance and after seeing what she just did I would be a little afraid. And did that zombie paste make her hungry for applesauce? Gross.
#4 Negan and Rick. We really saw a different side of Negan at the end. He definitely had a soft spot for Carl and I think he is genuinely sad over his death. Also, he was dropping wisdom on Rick there at the end. Was he actually wrong about anything he said? Not really. Rick’s decisions do get people killed kinda a lot and Negan does seem to want to avoid mass bloodshed. Is Negan actually the good guy here?
The Worst Moment
Everything to do with Oceanside. I don’t need anymore of them in the show, it is too slow and too boring. Of course most of the beginning of this episode was pretty slow to be honest. About half way though I wondered if anything was actually going to happen or if it was just going to touch base with everyone before the season continues to bigger and better things. The second half made up for it big time. Not the best episode the show has ever done, but did end with a bang, so it’s not all bad.
