A crash is heard from within the perimeter. Whatever calming essence was lingering through Hilltop at the beginning of this week’s episode came to a frightening halt. Ezekiel and the others come storming out of their homes to witness the origin of the sound: a large tree had toppled over and crashed through the perimeter wall. It’s not long before the residents of Hilltop have to combat a wave of walkers attempting to storm through the newly created hole, while also devising a way to reconstruct the damaged section.

With help from some Alexandrians, including Michonne, Judith, and Eugene, Hilltop is able to withstand the attack. Yet, the attack was enough to push Ezekiel to considering ending his life at the bridge–that is until Michonne talks him down and the two embrace. That embrace leads to a kiss, but nothing more as the two agree that a relationship between them would never work.

Meanwhile, Lydia has had to face anti-Whisperer sentiment from Alexandrians who blame her for what happened to theirs at the end of season 9. It’s not long before three of them decide to take matters into their own hands–by viciously beating Lydia late at night. However, Negan arrives in time to prevent further beating, tossing the three aside. What Negan didn’t count on was accidentally killing one of them when their head split open against a wall.

Now, Negan sits back in his cell, awaiting to hear if the council has voted to execute him or not. Lydia continues to remind them that Negan came to her aid, but that wasn’t enough to change the heart of the likes of Aaron–the same Aaron Negan saved the episode before. Daryl, on the other head, votes in favor of Negan, believing Lydia’s story. The deciding vote comes down to Gabriel, but his vote ends up not mattering. The reason being is that Negan has escaped his cell and is nowhere to be found.

This episode kept a well-balanced story, focusing on character development and intense situations. The highlight of this season has been the evolution of Negan. A character that has earned the mantle of “most hated” is suddenly finding ways to make viewers cheer for him. This is a result of great writing and a superb performance by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who has excelled in making the Negan character his own. Also, on a minor side note, there is a great scene where Judith shows just how skilled she is with a katana blade. A moment that brings a smile to Michonne’s face, and its worth seeing.

The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights on AMC, and is available for streaming on the AMC app.
