The Walking Dead, World Beyond: Episode 8, a traitor in the ranks, our verdict

A new episode of The Walking Dead: World Beyond is available on Prime Video and it's time to find out our verdict!

Shortly after telling you about the only spin-off The Walking Dead that we want to see after Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond, we come back today to the latter after the broadcast of episode 8 on Amazon Prime Video. In “The Sky is a Graveryard” , 2 important things happen. First, the group find themselves split into two after Silas decides to leave, and Elton's decision to follow him – especially as Hope has finally told them the truth about his mother. The second comes at the end of the episode: Huck is Elizabeth Kublek's daughter and has been spying on the group since the beginning on behalf of the CRM .

This interesting twist of the situation portends further fractures in the last 2 episodes of the first season, but as for a little while, he finds himself drowned by countless unnecessary scenes. Silas' past has long been teased and it's good to finally have had the answer, but his far too fragmented flashbacks advance so slowly that it's hard to keep an interest in them , especially since we know already how it ends. The same goes for the discussions between Felix, Huck, Iris, Hope and Elton regarding what they are going to do with Silas.

No decision is made until Silas decides for them: he leaves alone without a word. The Walking Dead: World Beyond suffers from a pacing issue with the plot advancing far too slow to keep our interest awake . Since leaving Campus, the characters are still at the same point: on their way to New York. Which means that with just 2 episodes from the end of the season, the protagonists have only encountered a few disruptive elements without accomplishing anything of substantial narrative level. Sure, they've gathered some information about CRM and they've gotten to know each other, but these elements should fill the backdrop of a story, not be its main components.

It seems increasingly clear that The Walking Dead: World Beyond was only created to put in place all the necessary elements for films about Rick Grimes, but it's a shame the writers didn't get more involved. The series does not exist on its own and that aspect comes out too much in each episode when one wonders once again what the characters have accomplished. Since the end of the season is approaching, we imagine that at least the last 2 episodes will be more rhythmic and will finally make things happen. While waiting to see it all, a star of The Walking Dead: World Beyond series has confirmed ties to Rick Grimes and future films in the franchise.
