I honestly loved this episode, and albeit having a lot of downtime, discussion and butchering of some community favourite characters I found this episode a thrill ride of "Oh shit" stomach drop moments, gut wrenching choices and one of the mind-blowingly fucking bat-shit insane climaxes any of the episodes so far.
This episode literally blew my mind when it came to breathaking moments. What about that moment where Alvin was shot and you thought he was dead but instead was like "NOOOOOPE" and shot a fucking goon, right after one of the saddest moments in the episode? What about the horror of seeing the zombie biting Sarita's hand, and the feeling of "I've gotta fucking do this" before you hack her hand off; not to mention right after shit goes to shit and Carlos gets shot in the jugular and Sarah "cease's" to function? What about the sick pleasure of witnessing Carver's beating, or knowing , after leaving, the kind of fate he will have? What when Carver decides Sarah needs punishment? Or about when Kenny's orbital is crushed, or when you see Luke has made it?
Jesus H. Christ people, this episode was great for pay-offs, and though at some points it may have felt a bit disjointed, and may not have been the best one so far, but in my opinion it is not the mess it is painted to be on the forums. Plus, I think the down-time during this episode was a welcome change, and pacing is very necessary in telling every story. But that's only my opinion.
