This show continues to follow its storytelling by going back into the past. As we see into the past of Captain Hook (portrayed by Colin O’Donoghue, “The Rite”), we learn more about who he really is. It’s always really enjoyable to find out more about a character because that’s what a story is supposed to do: build character. One of the main characters, Henry (Jared Gilmore, “Mad Men”) receives a message that he does not want to hear and a tense scenario was added in which Hook will need to make a decision. Is he going to do the right thing or is he going to be the usual selfish Hook that we know? It can only get better from here.
Sunday’s episode of the Walking Dead reminded us why people love this show. There was action, there was suspense and there were questions answered, all wrapped up in one episode. It brought suspense to the almost death of Tyreese (portrayed by Chad L. Coleman, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), a comic book fan favorite, but no one has officially died yet. The story is still not fully unraveled, but it doesn’t seem like they’re going to be dragging our questions out for very long. Being that viewers were unhappy with previous seasons lagging on, this is a great direction for the creators to go in. The next question on the list is who’s going to die next?
