Thirty years after Grace Foley helped send Tony Green to prison for the murder of young men, a copycat tries to force her to recant her stand on the case. 9: Sue Johnston on marvelous form as Grace, in a very personal storyline going back to her first murder case.
A serial rapist/killer currently serving a life sentence may hold the key to solving a copycat murder. A chilling performance from Samuel West and Susannah Parker on better form than usual makes for a very good episode.
After serving half her sentence for the murder of her husband and neighbor's son, new evidence suggests that Annie Keel could be innocent. 7: The story is gripping, full of twists and turns, the acting superb (Lynda Bellingham and Harriet Walter in particular), and it is quite harrowing, but beautifully written and filmed.
The plot is clever and interesting, and fairly original too, and I like the juxtaposition of the humor with more haunting scenes with chilling music. Sixteen years later, Jason is struck by a car and identified by his DNA after he is admitted to hospital.
When a London flat is being rehabbed a bloody Nazi dagger is discovered in the fireplace and the team joins with a Massed agent in a hunt to solve the case. The storyline features sensitive issues: Nazis, concentration camps, immigration in WW2, and child murder, but these are dealt with very well with a brilliant script by Declan Croghan, who surpasses himself here.
The solution is clever and believable, and ties up all the loose ends (something which LTD fails to do in later years!). Some humor here, too, the flashbacks are not violent, and Sean Per twee is marvelous as Carl MacKenzie, the convicted killer.
As the series staggers on towards that decade milestone like a member of Beta’s horde of walkers, now feels like a good time to assess and reflect on the comic book adaptation’s finest on-screen moments. Hats off to the show runners for executing one of the strongest Walking Dead twists yet (with the show deviating from the source material of the comics in selecting its victims), turning what started as a good day for our survivors at the jolly Kingdom-hosted fair into one of their worst yet.
The Goriest moment: A grinning Lizzie standing in front of Mikey’s dead body (with baby Judith next in her sights) with her hands covered in blood, promising that what she’s done is OK because her sister will “come back”. After meeting and learning walker 101 from Morgan, Rick heads into Atlanta where, naturally, all hell breaks loose as he’s forced to take shelter inside a tank to evade his first-ever horde of the undead.
Mere moments from being slaughtered by Gareth and the Terminus residents, Rick, Glenn, Bob and Daryl’s bacon is saved by a heroic one-woman assault on the cannibals’ base by Carol. ), decisively resolving the season four cliffhanger, putting our heroes back on the front foot in a classic battle of good vs. evil and quickly earning the affections of Walking Dead fans all over again.
From 2010s first season which redefined what we could expect from genre television, through to Rick Grimes’ explosive exit, there have been plenty of episodes that will live long in the memory. While this rundown of the best Walking Dead episodes very many sticks to the first half of the show’s run, there are still a handful of classic episodes from recent years well worth seeking out.
Call it what you will, “The Calm Before” is proof that the Whisperers, despite only having been around for a few episodes, deserve a place on the Mount Rushmore of Walking Dead villains. (Image credit: AMC)Some episodes belong here simply because they either shook the show’s foundations or delivered devastating deaths.
(Image credit: AMC)”TS-19” is unlike any Walking Dead episode for one reason: there's actual hope of a cure being made. The episode takes place entirely in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where Rick meets the sole surviving scientist Edwin Jenner.
Rick is reunited with Judith, Carol completes her transformation into full-on badass, and the group takes down the cannibals who held them captive at the tail-end of season 4. The two alpha males eventually lock horns in the tense penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s second season, which takes place on Hershel’s farm while an army of Walkers closes in.
Fresh from being rightly slapped silly by Machine in the previous episode, Rick eventually escapes the threat of exile thanks to Pete murdering Reg, the husband of Alexandria's leader.
