good news, Living Dead fans: people who have watched the show for so long that they feel compelled to watch it until the end, no matter how much they enjoy it. Which can either could not comes from that! Pamela Milton has finally declared war on all the people who have made her comfortable life difficult since her arrival, and things may finally start to look up. slightly.
“What’s Been Lost” is a fairly straightforward episode of TWD, but direct is a direction that means long-standing hostilities are finally getting somewhere. Pamela has her Commontroopers and private troops kidnap all of the Alexandrians, Hilltoppers, and assorted friends who have been causing trouble and disturbance, though Daryl and Carol manage to escape her would-be captors. The only Pam has no voicezed is Yumiko, who wants to put Eugene on trial for killing Sebastian (by turning him into a zombie). Yumiko, unsurprisingly, is unwilling to do this, but Pam threatens not only her friends, but her brother Tomi as well.
Daryl and Carol visit Hornsby, hoping he has some information that will allow them to free the others. They find him in his cell, covered in blood, muttering to himself as the chained zombie Sebastian writhes in a pool of more blood, trying to grab another meal. After some light torture, Hornsby agrees to show them where they have been taken and how to get out of town, but Daryl is forced to stay behind to cover Carol and Hornsby’s escape from prison.
Hornsby is actually the highlight of “What’s Been Lost” because forces one of the main characters in the series to consider what they are doing in the Commonwealth and what the consequences may be. He accurately points out that it is civilians who are always injured in revolutions. “You and your people will have the lives of 50,000 people in your hands,” he says as Pamela is knocked down. “Will you let the Commonwealth burn?” When Carol says that it’s not her problem, he reminds her of the many children in the Commonwealth, “Do you really want to deny them the only chance to have the kind of life you take for granted?” But Carol has no answer for that.

Hornsby takes her to one of the Commonwealth’s abandoned “infrastructure repair projects”, where they fight in the dark with zombies whose skin seems to peel off too easily. He is a bit busy until Carol and Hornsby leave, they are confronted by a group of Commontroopers, who are also busy because Daryl shows up and shoots them in the back, saving the day.
This is where Hornsby makes a near-fatal mistake: he mentions that all the trio have to do is follow the train tracks to find where they’ve all taken them. With that, Daryl and Carol have all the information they need to save their friends without the demonstrably unreliable Hornsby. They seem to be seconds away from killing him, telling him they are about to kill him repeatedly, but offer him give him a chance to run. And that’s when Hornsby makes his fatal mistake. He grabs a rifle from the fallen Commontrooper’s jeep and Carol instantly pierces him with some arrows. Goodbye, Hornsby. You were weird and reasonably interesting while you lasted.
Back in the Commonwealth, Yumiko is forced to keep a press conference where he will announce that he will prosecute Eugene to the extent of the laws the Commonwealth still has on the books. Instead, Yumiko announces that she will defend Eugene, shocking everyone at the press conference and with no one watching the TV series. The last show is everyone getting on a Commonwealth bus, tied up and with sacks on their heads, where are they going, where the hell is Pam stabbing dissenters.
There weren’t, as predicted, any of the newer, more intelligent zombie variants which, unfortunately, gave last week’s episode a bit of a thrill. Which means that even though this episode made the conflict between Our People and the Commonwealth obvious, and even if Hornsby bit it, “What We Lost” is somewhat less exciting than last week’s doorknobWhich is the cruelest way I can say it, although I don’t really mean it.
It is just that The Walking Dead It’s still reeling from whatever its conclusion is, which should be pretty epic considering the show was once the most popular drama series on television. At the very least, one would think that the creators of the show would want to ratchet up the tension to hopefully inspire the remaining fans to check out the spin-offs. dead city Y Daryl Dixon. Instead, The Walking Dead just past…
But if you want to be optimistic, there’s still four hours left in the series, and there’s no reason the show couldn’t get more exciting in that time frame. Is it too little too late? Probably. But I’d still appreciate some something before the end comes.
- Hornsby admits that bringing Alexandria and the other communities into the Commonwealth fold was “mishandled”. That made me laugh.
- Commontroopers also took Dog. It’s ridiculous.
- After Pam threatens Tomi, Yumiko cleverly thanks her for all her contributions to the Commonwealth at the press conference, making sure people take notice if Pam encourages him. Intelligent! However, she is still technically doomed by the rest of her friends, at least as far as she knows.
- When Daryl and Carol took Horsnby out of his cell, the body was gone. Sebastian‘head was fine minus a knife hole in it. But when Pam goes to the cell to check on her later, Sebastian’s head is smashed in and Hornsby’s double-headed coin is caught in the veil. Was my screener missing a scene? Or was it the same for you?
