Milton, Hornsby, and New Walkers, Oh My!

For episode 147 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, LT, and Brian talk through The Walking Dead Season 11, Episode 19, titled Variant. Written by Vivian Tse and directed by Karen Gaviola. Eugene is on the run. Mercer is tasked to find him. Aaron’s group faces a complication on the road.

We get a new walker stalker; Pamela is on a tear about losing Sebastian, and Princess has a real heart-to-heart with Mercer.

Here is another great episode to discuss with some new questions now that we’ve been introduced more to different kinds of walkers. I don’t know what that means for the rest of this finale season, but maybe it has something to do with the spinoffs. Pamela is out for blood, and Eugene is at the end of her deathly stare. She is not the unknowing leader and looks like she is behind some of the dark issues behind the curtain of The Commonwealth. Lance looks like he’s on the losing end, but we will have to see.

Since this is getting out so late, I’ll keep it short again. So, enjoy as Kyle, LT, and Brian discuss this episode of The Walking Dead, Season 11, Episode 19, titled Variant.

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 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).
