'The Walking Dead' Season 6 Premiere Review: 'First Time Again'
Rick and his compatriots have taken matters into their own hands to protect the Alexandria Safe Zone.
With the new blessing of a grieving Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh) the survivors have been given carte blanche over the future of the town and its inhabitants.
There’s a new sheriff in town, sort of.
What this really means is that central protagonist and complete jerk Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) can shape the future of the town and its inhabitants to his will. The rest of his crew will follow his lead, either happily or grudgingly.
Rick is a loose canon, bitter and reckless and eager to get things done regardless of input. I get why he’s this way, but I find myself feeling exhausted whenever he’s on screen.
That he still thinks Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge) will fall for him after killing her abusive ex-husband and the father of her children shows just how skewed his worldview has become.
