Welcome back to Bleeding Cool’s weekly review/recap of AMC‘s The Walking Dead Season 8 as we take a look at this season’s fifteenth – and penultimate – episode, ‘Worth.’
If I had to subtitle this episode, it would be How Negan Got His Groove Back because the Saviors head honcho found two distinctly different ways to deal with two distinctly different problems: Simon (Steven Ogg) and Dwight (Austin Amelio). As if he didn’t already have enough on his plate, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) also had a fake attack plan “smuggled” to Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the Hilltop coalition to set them up for a one final, major ambush – and as he tells Michonne (Danai Gurira) after she reads Carl’s letter to him, this time there will be no mercy.
Meanwhile, Aaron (Ross Marquand) continued going the Bear Grylls route to win over Oceanside – and it appears to be working. To no one’s surprise, Eugene (Josh McDermitt) continued to make the case that he should be killed before Negan, using a little two-finger projectile vomiting to escape Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Rosita (Christian Serratos) and seemingly recommit his people to Negan’s ammo-making cause.
The Walking Dead Episode 8×15 ‘Worth’: With the threat of the Saviors still looming, Aaron continues searching for allies; Daryl and Rosita take action and confront an old friend.
Just to be clear, our “revap” (recap/review/stream of consciousness mash-up) is a “monster” all its own — and I will be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode, so just keep that in mind. Definitely not looking for pitchforks and torches outside my apartment so spoiler warnings.
