Gilbert Speaks on The Walking Dead S11 E04

13 Sep

In last week’s episode everyone was worried about the whereabouts of our number one favorite person of TWD universe. This week we find out what happened to Daryl and Dog.

Rendition

Well, we finally find out who the Reapers are, and who knows Daryl. After being surrounded by Reapers, Daryl learns that his former lover, Leah (Lynn Collins) is an important member of the Reapers. The leader is called Pope (Ritchie Coster) who, along with his team is not only former military, but also a mercenary. This explains their ninja abilities to attack unseen. Pope is also a religious nut job, so there is that.

Pope wants to know who Daryl’s people are. Daryl denies that they are his friends which gets him waterboarded. When that doesn’t work because Daryl is the poster child for loyalty…Leah tries to sweet talk him into giving Pope the needed information. Finally, even though Daryl doesn’t tell the truth, Leah vouches for him, and Daryl is put to one final test. The test of fire.

Conclusion

In the final season of TWD, we are learning that walkers are not the real enemy. Pope reminds me of the governor…he demands complete obedience and heaven help you if you try to save your own butt. Pope shows his craziness when he kills one of the Reapers by throwing the man into a fire and holds him down until he is a crispy critter.

This was one of the better episodes for two reasons: Daryl might have gotten into a mess that he can’t walk away from…and we met a worthy enemy. I am hoping that Negan, having been a former dictator, will know how to deal with Pope and the Reapers.
