The Walking Dead Some Guy Recap Season 8 Episode 4 – Unlike previous seasons where an episode ends with heightened tension and is not followed-up on until multiple episodes later, it seems as though this season is making a concerted effort to keep the action flowing. Last week there was a quick conclusion to the Morales story arch and in this episode it picks up directly after Ezekiel and his ranks are mowed down from a browning machine gun above.
The Walking Dead Some Guy Recap Season 8 Episode 4
As bodies are littered everyone on screen, it becomes apparent that Ezekiel was wrong about not losing a single life. In fact, he’s the only left alive and buried underneath a pile of bodies. As he makes his way out, he’s devastated to see that he is the lone survivor. The dead start to awaken and close in on him as he stumbles away but he comes into a creepy looking Savior who holds him at gun point. Instead of killing him, he forces him to walk to a nearby closed gate as walkers follow.
Ezekiel tells the Savior they’ll have to fight the Walkers off together but he’s thrown the floor and marked for execution. As the Savior raises a sword to kill him, he’s literally axed in half by Jerry who managed to survive the attack. Ezekiel is startled to be saved and tells Jerry he doesn’t have to call him King anymore, to which Jerry adamantly retorts by telling him “Dude, yes I do!”
While this is going on, Carol is in the middle of a shootout with the Saviors nearby. She has them cornered behind a pickup truck full of weapons, including the browning machine gun. However, she also notices Jerry and Ezekiel fighting off a horde of walkers closing in on them. She has a choice to make between killing the Saviors and securing the weapons, or saving her friends. Unsurprisingly she chooses to kill the walkers, but the Saviors quickly get away in the truck as she turns her back to them.
As the Saviors drive away, Rick and Daryl follow them in what turns out to be one of the first car chase scenes of the show. The chase seems like something from a 90’s action film and not that practical since they manage evade the gun fire of a machine gun directly in front of them, but the point of the scene is that the Saviors don’t get away. Rick and Daryl secure the weapons without as much as a scratch, but it was still fun to watch.
Ezekiel, Carol, and Jerry continue to flee the walkers, but Ezekiel’s injury holds them up when they reach a pond. Ezekiel pleads with them to leave him, and tells Jerry one last time that he isn’t his King. He breaks his Shakespearian voice cries out that he’s just some guy. Carol and Jerry aren’t sure what to do, but just then as the Walkers get closer, Shiva jumps out of the brush to save her master. Unfortunately, there are too many walkers for Shiva and she ultimately meets her end.
The episode closes with a dejected Ezekiel returning to the Kingdom with just two other survivors and everyone there watching in horror at the failed mission.
