In the latest episode of The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, viewers are treated to a mix of good, bad, and preposterous moments. The episode, titled “Become,” features a surprising cameo by Gabriel, played by Seth Gilliam. The flashback scenes with Gabriel and Jadis, played by Pollyanna McIntosh, add suspense to the storyline, although some viewers found the plot developments to be implausible. The episode also explores Jadis’ redemption arc as she ultimately sacrifices herself to save Rick and Michonne.

One of the main criticisms of the episode is the sheer number of ridiculous coincidences and convenient plot points that detract from the overall narrative. Rick and Michonne encounter a group of survivors who turn on them, only to be easily overpowered by the main characters. The introduction of “stoner” zombies, with rock-hard skin that initially proves challenging to kill, is quickly resolved without much difficulty, leading to a lack of tension in the storyline.

The episode takes a turn when Jadis tracks down Rick and Michonne to a remote cabin in the woods, leading to a showdown where our heroes once again emerge victorious despite being outnumbered. Jadis’ redemption arc culminates in her sacrifice, as she reveals the location of secret files to Rick and Michonne before asking to be killed to prevent further harm. The episode ends with Gabriel discovering Jadis’ fate and a potential hint at future developments involving helicopter sightings.

Overall, the episode is seen as a letdown by some viewers, with criticisms of the lack of tension, implausible plot developments, and the ease with which the main characters overcome obstacles. Despite some compelling moments and strong production values, the episode falls short of expectations for a season that has had years to develop a compelling storyline. With the season finale approaching, viewers are left wondering how the story will be wrapped up in a satisfying manner with only one episode remaining. Future developments, including the potential death of Rick, remain uncertain as the series continues to unfold.
