One Massive Nod to the Comics
This episode, “Go Getters” has to be one of the worst episodes since that dreadful Sophia arc that stretched about five episodes too long. Damn near nothing of serious note happens in this particular episode, however, AMC is at least lining the story up to almost precisely mirror the happenings of the comic books. I was lulled into a near coma, so if there were any great Easter Eggs, I missed them. Instead, let me share some similarities.
Here are a few of the key points that can be found on screen and in print, virtual carbon copies of one another:
Maggie takes up resident at the hilltop.
Gregory is emerging as the unquestionable coward.
Maggie is stepping in as the de facto leader of the hilltop.
Jesus is distancing himself from all others by pursuing the right things to do at every opportunity (thus, living up to his name).
Carl hitches a ride with Negan’s people, unbeknownst to Negan, headed back for the Saviors’ territory.
