The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 3

Richồng is determined to lớn push the survivors into lớn some sort of Utopian new world, in which everyone works together for the greater good, everyone cooperates, và everytoàn thân puts all their dead friends and family members in the past. To Rick, letting go of the past is the best way lớn honor the dead. As Justin the long-haired Savior’s reanimated corpse sits up after being mauled by a group of walkers, the telltale weapon wound in the middle of his chest—which bled out prior lớn his death, not before—suggests that other people have a different idea of how to lớn honor the dead.

Riông xã says let it go và make a world their lost friends would be proud of; someone else clearly believes that the best way lớn rethành viên the dead is by getting revenge for them.

The Saviors are being targeted. Despite having the advantage in numbers, they’re relatively unarmed—they have sầu axes và hatchets, everyone else has guns and spears and bows. Despite their protests, & the knowledge that they’re being targeted for murder, everyone seems lớn agree that giving the Saviors guns is a bad idea.

So it’s up to lớn Riông xã và company lớn traông chồng down the person or people hunting down and killing the Saviors while keeping the disappearances quiet khổng lồ avoid a full-scale job walk-off. For Rick, helping the Saviors is a matter of conscience. For Maggie, Daryl, and pretty much everyone else, helping the Saviors is needed to keep the peace and get the bridge finished before the stormy season rolls in.

“Warning Signs” operates on something lượt thích the buddy system, literally và figuratively. The literal use of the word comes into play when Richồng tells his team lớn break up into lớn pairs with people they trust and go looking for the missing Arat (và all the other Saviors).

They have sầu to use small groups and keep it quiet, because just a few moments earlier, the Savior workforce gathered together khổng lồ protest the disappearances, và their laông chồng of protection by their armed guards. Pushing và shoving happened, Daryl và Anne/Jadis were accused of being the secret killers, threats were used, and just when it seems as if the complaining would become violent, Richồng rides up on horsebaông xã & gives out a lot of assurances. He’s got the best people, and the Savior crew will be kept safe.

The tìm kiếm mission helps the big cast spread out. The pairs that go out—Riông chồng and Carol, Daryl and Maggie—reflect the divide in the characters Angela Kang has been fostering since the beginning of the ninth season. Corey Reed doesn’t belabor the point in his script. Richồng và Carol discuss the whys of Rick’s decisions, & how well they work, while Daryl và Maggie vị the real detective sầu work & traông chồng down the people who have sầu been eliminating Saviors. As it might turn out, the killers are kindred spirits with the revenge-minded Daryl & Maggie, as established by the discussions Daryl và Maggie have sầu regarding capital punishment, revenge killings, và local politics.

In other hands, revenge killing could easily become something kind of silly. It’s the basis for thousands of movies of dubious chất lượng, but there’s something about the concept of getting back at people who have sầu hurt you và your family that is appealing. The scene in which Arat begs for help from Maggie và Daryl (along with her work keeping the Saviors in line) establishes that she has changed, at least for the moment, but the details of her former life are chilling, & merit punishment of some kind.

That punishment was inspired by Maggie having Gregory hanged in front of the people of Hilltop; as the leader of the assassination crew says, Maggie is proof that Rick’s way isn’t the only way. Oceanside cooperated, says Cyndie, because they wanted lớn fight the Saviors. Now, they just want to make sure that the people who ruined their idyllic life are punished khổng lồ the fullest extover of what passes for the law in the post-apocalyptic wasteland.

One or two set pieces aside, it’s not a plot that lends itself khổng lồ any flashy action sequences. “Warning Signs” leans more heavily on ambiance, aside from a couple of people put into lớn walker peril due to their own silly behavior. There’s still a problem with that on The Walking Dead, even if the resulting scenes of Cyndie in peril are fun. Dan Liu mostly works with tension here, with shots of actors creeping through the woods và the occasional scene of walkers shambling a little too cthua kém for comfort.

The square-off between Maggie and Kal with the Saviors hunting for their missing frikết thúc is well crafted; Maggie might have sầu a gun, but they have numbers & they were able khổng lồ come out of the woods without being detected, so their threat feels real. The Saviors clearly have sầu a larger group at the camp, and they’re all armed with melee weapons, while only a few of the other bridge employees have sầu guns and the rest are similarly armed. Until Richồng shows up, that pushing match could go either way, and could easily spill over inkhổng lồ violence.

There have sầu been some fun action sequences this season, but the biggest change from season 8 seems lớn be a renewed emphasis on characters having relatively logical reasons for doing the things that they bởi vì. The discord between the groups is one of the most reasonable things that The Walking Dead has put forward since “All Out War” began.

It doesn’t matter how long you work alongside someone, when groups keep separate—as these groups seem khổng lồ have sầu done—and as long as there are hard feelings from all the murders carried out by The Saviors, there will always be that risk for sudden, vengeful violence. The people who are used to being in charge are now just working alongside the very groups they used khổng lồ terrorize.

Rick has quite literally reshaped their known world with a waved gun & a cavalry charge, và no matter how long the time jump has taken, a years-long campaign of terror isn’t something people will forget easily. The Saviors are still a separate community. They work alongside the others, & they cooperate under the leadership of Eugene và Daryl, but they’re not part of the greater community in any real sense. All the Saviors are is a food burden on Hilltop và a reminder for Oceanside, Alexandria, & The Kingdom how much has been lost.

It’s hard lớn build a new world when the remains of the old refuse lớn be buried.
