For episode 121 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Brian and LT and Kyle talk through The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 20 titled Splinter. Splinter was written by Julia Ruchman & Vivian Tse and directed by Laura Belsey.

Princess loses her mind…no seriously!

I mean did she ever. I mean there’s the ADHD, the anxiety, the PTSD, the depression, the crushing loneliness, and the active imagination that helps her cope with all of it. I guess you could say we had spilt personalities this episode. Kyle liked the episode after the second watch but Brian and LT were just okay with it. I mean for what it was we did get a little introduction of Princess but what does that mean going forward into Season 11. I guess we will have to wait a see. We did get more insight into the stormtroopers and about how they operate when they meet new people. This is our first introduction of the Commonwealth and it didn’t look like it was going in the way Eugene may have thought it was. We did have some feedback, good and bad, but while I hope what we are being given in this Season 10.5 of the Walking Dead, that it pays off for when we get to see Season 11 this fall. Fingers Crossed.
