Opening with some of TWD's most unsettling imagery to date, "Ghosts" ratchets up the tension with a heady, psychologically-driven story.
There is some incremental progress made in the Whisperer storyline during "Ghosts", but otherwise it's a bunch of uninspired or redundant character work.
Dear Eugene: Please stick to the overwritten one-liners and the inexplicable ability to provide essential intel - from zombie head counts to weather patterns - whenever needed.
All the "maybe these are hallucinations, maybe not" scenes makes me wonder if I am hallucinating.
That was tense from start to finish.
That beginning sequence was outstanding, building tension expertly.
This was very interesting episode of The Walking Dead. I don't think the TWD writers have focused on the trauma of the apocalypse this much since Rick left. We always dealt with his trauma, guilt, PTSD, and grief, but not so much the other characters.
Another well-made episode that is building up to the eventual war with Daryl, Michonne, and company vs. Alpha, Beta, and The Whisperers.
"Ghosts" is terrific in the way it advances the story, develops four characters in new ways, and ties those storylines together on a theme.
The walker onslaught opening the episode is one of the more chilling images The Walking Dead has played with so far this season, creating this sense of doom as there is seemingly no end in sight.
A lot going in this episode. Many interesting things progressing, such as new developments with Carol, and it's fun to see the various things that are pulling people together v. what's tearing them apart.
All told, this was one of the best episodes I've seen from The Walking Dead in a long time. Exciting action. Great dialogue. Some trippy bits with Carol that were scary and tense.
Ghosts didn't match the heights of the previous two episodes... That doesn't suggest this was a bad episode at all as the Whisperers wall of walkers and Negan's emergence into useful killing machine opens up some very intriguing storylines.
