    "As if you didn’t have enough reasons to love Daryl, prepare to love him even more. He saves the day more than once in this episode."

    Hang me with something that'll snap my neck fast.

    Until I get to reading...Did they exclude Michonne like so many of these reviews do?

    Things happen in this episode that will permanently change the show in ways we haven’t seen before. Sorry, I know that’s horribly unspecific.

    I'm intrigued by this.

    That's the only thing I could think of. Sorry dude, get on the winning team, the satisfaction is at an all time high. The ending has been anything BUT swift.

    At least he's acknowledging that the Anderson arc was a fail or an "infection" if you will.

    Yeah, one thing I can guarantee about this arc is that I'll be completely satisfied with how it ends.

    Yep. We have objective proof that the Messie storyline sucked like a toilet plunger, without the usefulness.

    This line in particular nails the really glaring problem with how No Way Out was adapted like so many people called during the summer hiatus:

    NWO should've ended around episode 4-5 to prevent so much plodding. After "Thank You" it really ground to a halt, and then ending with that weak note really didn't do the arc any favors.

    What really shot the show in the foot was the decision to make the timeline approximately two days. I get the risk, and can appreciate it a little, but it just did not work.
