Talking Through The Key

This content has been moved and can now be found here.

On this episode number 76 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Mark and I talk through Season 8, Episode 12 of The Walking Dead, which is titled The Key. This episode was written by co-executive producers Channing Powell and Corey Reed, and directed by executive producer Greg Nicotero.

Car chase!

This episode brings us something seldom used on TWD but a staple for action movies, a good old-fashioned car chase! Rick went after Negan, and nearly got him. What ensues is part action, part dialog and part predictable story. Yeah, in episode 12, we knew that neither Rick nor Negan would die or get seriously hurt in this confrontation, but it was entertaining and tense.

Simon and Dwight

Simon, who you would normally expect to search for Negan, basically doesn’t. Simon tries to feel out Dwight. Dwight doesn’t realize until the end that the prospect of The Saviors led by Simon may be far worse than Negan.

Georgie and the Mystery Machine!!!

Georgie, Hilda and Madge. At first, I thought they were from Oceanside. This encounter, and the information it brought, was definitely not expected, but I suspect this will set us up for Season 9 or 10, and a possible time jump.

Tuesday Deadline

For S8E13, titled Do Not Send Us Astray, please leave your feedback by 6 PM Eastern/5 PM Central on Tuesday, March 27th, 2018.

Other Fun Stuff Completely Unrelated to The Key!

I announced that there’s been a serious personal/family issue that’s happened to me since we last recorded, the details of which I will not publish on this blog, Facebook, or Twitter. However, I do talk a little about it during the episode, starting at 4:20. I’m not going to set up a new one, at least for now. Instead, I’m repurposing last year’s request to help me pay for a new hard drive on GoFundMe, and will update our situation there, with a new dollar amount.
