TWDTT 151 - Family (S11E23)

Pamela is headed for a beatdown, and she better!

For episode 151 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, LT, and Brian talk through The Walking Dead Season 11, Episode 23, titled Family. Written by Magli Lozano & Erik Mountain & Kevin Deiboldt and directed by Sharat Raju. The Alexandrians and the prisoners head back to the Commonwealth to confront Pamela Milton. Meanwhile, a swarm approaches the city.

The Grimes curse strikes again, Pamela is on her last leg and shows just how much she feels about her citizen of The Commonwealth, and our people get in a variant-level sticky situation!

Hey Survivors! Here is the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead Series. Just one more to go, and after 12 years, our beloved show is ending. But not forever with all the spinoffs, and who knows what they will come up with (something better than Tales, lol). We have another explosive episode with Pamela showing more of her evilness that will not, I Say Will Not, be redeemable. The stormtroopers keep the streak of incompetence for a force that was believed to be feared… lol. And walkers that have more undead skills than we’ve ever been shown before since back to Season 1. And yes, the shocking cruse of the Grimes shows its ugly head again with a shot heard around the Walking Dead Universe. These poor Grimes children sure have some terrible luck. But Kyle is not too worried because he thinks there is some plot armor surrounding Judith Grimes, so he feels we will not see the end of her story. 

So Enjoy as Kyle, LT, and Brian discuss the penultimate episode of the series. The Walking Dead, Season 11, Episode 23, titled Family.

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).
