It was a long summer waiting for AMC’s The Walking Dead to come back after that Season 6 cliffhanger. Not long in a good way mind you. No, it was definitely long in the very worst way. It was long in the way that a drive-thru lineup is longest when you just need to grab a coffee before heading to work. Long in the way that makes you wonder if it’s worth even trying. It makes you wonder whether or not it’s time to put a series out to pasture for good. But sometimes you get that resolution that makes it all worth it. The drive-thru line zips by surprisingly fast. You realize it was worth it to take the chance and hope for the best because the best happened. Last night’s episode was not that moment for The Walking Dead. Spoilers below the cut.
