"Silence The Whisperers" offers a meditative focus on the developments of some lesser characters, all while continuing this season's compelling narrative thrust.
Ezekiel (Khary Payton) finally gets some attention this week, sharing some tender moments with Michonne (Danai Gurira), which is a surprisingly fresh pairing on this show, considering how long both characters have been around.
There's a sweet cinematic standoff outside the gates of Hilltop in the moonlight - a cool panning shot of the scene as Magna's trio and the sisters arrow, slingshot, and hack the undead back to death.
"Silence the Whisperers" was another solid episode... The show is showing no signs of slowing down, and that's a good thing.
I love Judith, but it is a little strange that killing zombies has become a mother-daughter bonding experience for her and Michonne.
This season of The Walking Dead is focusing on the development of some of the B-characters, which I like a lot. But! The story line is dragging just a little bit.
The big exposition dumps are smaller, more contained, and spread out through the episode.
A decent episode that wasn't as impressive as the last three, so hopefully, seeing where Negan ends up and how he got there in the first place will be much better in comparison.
I really enjoyed this episode. It had some good zombie action. Like the previous episodes this season, the show is doing a great job at fleshing out all these characters and their relationships with one another.
Good episode. It'll be more compelling to see Negan again, where he's ended up, why, and also to see the Whisperers again.
Like Andrew Lincoln before her, Danai Gurira is getting some of her best material on her way out of the series. First it was in a nice scene with Judith and then as she stops Ezekiel from potentially killing himself.
Making the smaller story of Lydia and Negan fitting into a community that despises them and using it to tell a larger story of where this world finds itself is a compelling way to take the show.
"Silence the Whisperers" is a very thoughtful episode of The Walking Dead, which is not an adjective that normally gets used to describe the show.
