Guys, I don’t know if you know this, but everything in the post-apocalyptic zombie world is just terrible. You can’t trust cops, danger lurks around every corner in the suburbs, and prisons are just the worst. Even hospitals end up killing more people than they help! Okay, so the world of The Walking Dead isn’t all that different from our own world, except of course for the wild card that is the shambling, flesh-eating Walkers. Considering how strange life in this fictional world is on a weekly basis, I was amazed that the creative team managed to put together an hour that was even stranger than usual. More than once I was convinced that “Slabtown” was a fever dream or a drug-induced hallucination experienced by Beth Greene (Emily Kinney), right up until the last second. For fans of Beth/Kinney, I’d imagine this was a rather enjoyable episode, but judging by social media reactions, for most it was just torture.
