Gage, Roy and more Train Cars!

For episode 125 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Brian, and LT talk through The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 2 titled Acheron, Part 2. It was written by Angela Kang and Jim Barnes and directed by Kevin Dowling.

Maggie, that was cold!

Well, Maggie doesn’t seem to be bothered by the choices she makes. She also isn’t that great at giving a pep talk but I guess she has seen some things and has had to make some hard choices to stay alive. We do get to see the return of Gage and Roy but without the supplies, they ran off with. And Negan has an interesting arch in this episode. Is there going to be a change in relations between him and Maggie?  I guess we will have to see.

We did like the look of this episode and a glimpse of those who were surviving down in the subway after the fall. But as with most things, walkers get involved and make a mess out of things. Luckily we know our group can handle themselves. Even if some of their Train car clearing tactics were a bit weak.

Yumiko, Eugene, King Ezekiel and Princess finally get reunited and step into a brand new world.

This time we see Yumiko show off her skills against the Commonwealth Buerocrats. She knows how to read a room. This does play out well for our group but they did take one last poke at Eugene to break him, but it didn’t work. At least that is what Kyle thinks. This in the end gets our group reunited and passing inspection for entry into the Commonwealth and a surprise (well, not really) introduction to the one and only Stephine. Eugene is finally getting a girlfriend…well we think so. Guess we will have to wait and see.

We want to start offering Patrons a real reason to stay on our Patreon and to get more people to become Patrons. As such, we are going to start experimenting with bringing you some new content that will really make it worth your while to be subscribed.

We hope you will enjoy this first experiment. We are going to try offering Patrons early access to our regular episodes. These versions of the episodes will be less polished than the final version of the podcast, will largely be uncensored, may contain things we fix up in the final version (like when we speak over each other, awkward silences, etc.), content that we remove from the final version and may not have all of the sound effects mixed in properly (and in the case of this episode, doesn’t have the beginning and ending music mixed in at all).

To do this, we edited a different version of the podcast where we’re all on one single track, and only edited major things. Aside from that, the process is similar to how we’ve been doing it. We think, at least from an editing perspective, this was a major success. In fact, this process may influence how we edit the main version of the podcast going forward.
