TWDTT 034 – No Way Out (S6E9)

Talking Through No Way Out

What an amazing episode to come back to after that break that seemed like it might last forever, especially with the issues that some of us had with the first half of season 6. But No Way Out just made it all better, they recaptured us with sweet words and explosions! Well, all better for some of us; for Sam and Jessie, not so much. Just like Rick did, we also fell in love with Jessie; and just like Alexandra Breckenridge, we are super bummed about Jessie’s fate, too. However, when it comes to Sam, responses vary wildly. I, for one, think he was a kid in a tough situation in which this outcome was probably inevitable. Major Dodson’s poor character just couldn’t catch a break. But after seeing him on The Talking Dead, he endeared himself even more, at least to this fan, making it that much harder to see him go.

We loved it, even if not everyone else did…

While we have heard that some people had less than favorable reactions to No Way Out, we both wholeheartedly loved it! Our only disagreement is whether this episode is the best of the show. We got the best from all of our favorite characters, and even a little redemption from those we thought was beyond help. Alexandria survived the night, and it was really good to see the other Alexandrians do what scared them the most and face the walkers. The shots at the end – what I call the “faces montage” – were easily our favorites of the episode. Sometimes it’s a swing and a miss, but sometimes when you swing for the fences you hit a home run. This one was definitely a home run.
