Where do I start? Do I begin with Daryl and Beth feasting on snake? Beth trying on new clothes before getting blood splattered on her lovely attire? Beth and Daryl drinking moonshine and taking turns sharing truths that takes you back to your high school days? Or Daryl finally seeing himself as Daryl and not like his drunken dad or ill-tempered brother Merle by burning down his house with its bad histories? There is virtually nothing to recap about ‘Still’ due to the fact that nothing really had an appealing feature. It was very boring out of all the episodes I’ve seen! Yes, character development is vital as it breathes life and holds the audience together, something TWD has done correctly for years, but to be honest there is nothing notable about Beth. She has the will to survive unlike in season two where she cut her wrists. Daryl is just Daryl. We’ve seen him as a redneck ass in season one gradually evolving into a caring, sympathetic Daryl in season two, searching non-stop for Sophia, to a well mannered, upstanding Daryl in seasons three and four. We all know he looked up to his older brother, however flawed he was, and now Rick is his role-model. Funny because in another time and place, Rick would likely be handcuffing Daryl.
Bluntly, diving into Daryl Dixon’s past has run its course. He can still progress and spill out many surprises along the way, but I think his development is done in the sense that he is so one-dimensional it would be a waste of time for solo-episodes focusing on him.
Tonight’s episode looks great, at least greater than the Beth and Daryl episode shown last week. I don’t think Bob will meet his end. Maggie, on the other hand, will likely get bit. Her or Sasha–or both! Bob might have an episode of his Army days as a medic and go crazy.
