TWDTT 076 – The Key (S8E12)

Talking Through The Key

On this episode number 76 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Mark and I talk through Season 8, Episode 12 of The Walking Dead, which is titled The Key. This episode was written by co-executive producers Channing Powell and Corey Reed, and directed by executive producer Greg Nicotero.

Car chase!

This episode brings us something seldom used on TWD but a staple for action movies, a good old-fashioned car chase! Rick went after Negan and nearly got him. What ensues is part action, part dialog, and part predictable story. Yeah, in episode 12, we knew that neither Rick nor Negan would die or get seriously hurt in this confrontation, but it was entertaining and tense.

Simon and Dwight

You would normally expect Simon to search for Negan but he doesn’t. Simon tries to feel out Dwight. Dwight doesn’t realize until the end that the prospect of The Saviors led by Simon may be far worse than Negan.

Georgie and the Mystery Machine!!!

Georgie, Hilda, and Madge. At first, I thought they were from Oceanside. This encounter and the information it brought was definitely not expected, but I suspect this will set us up for Season 9 or 10, and a possible time jump.

Ratings are up a bit

The Key got a 2.83 in the 18-49 demographic, with 6.663 million viewers. This is up from 2.80 and 6.604 million viewers last week.
