Philosophical Episode
30 October 2016 | by DaniloJavarottoSee all my reviews

Great Episode. Amazing Sayings and plot. Very "well" developed showing Ezekiel as a wise and peaceful leader using the theatricality to teach people virtue and nobility. Claire is as dull as she could have been looking for something outside herself, which, of course, will end up, in finding the light and the right path inwards helped thoroughly by Ezekiel, in a relationship that could spring some odd ways for the show. Morgan is quite clever and is finally coming across the humbleness he took so long to bow finding himself halfway from the noble man he wants to become. The Saviors were barely shown and that part was also the representation of a "to do" list by the writers just to bring to the audience the fact that the Kingdom also provides for Negan and his Satanic group. Finally it is essential to mention the Ezekiel is, probably, the most balanced and philosophical leader on the show. He seems to be the point of encounter between Negan and Rick, or Morgan and Rick. He is courageous when he needs to be, he is wise when he needs to be and very defiant when he needs to be. He is a kind, courteous and noble man, choosing freedom over dictatorship, and wisdom over despair. He produces and teaches his people the most valuable virtues, morale and respect in a chaotic world. Let's see now if he is the one leader people are looking forward to having at the dawn of war that seems to be coming against Hilltop, the Kingdom and Alexandria in the future.
