Review: The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 1 "First Time Again" [Season Premiere]


In the Season 6 premiere, Rick and the group continue to have trouble assimilating into Alexandria; and a new threat could bring them closer together or drive them further apart.

AIRED: October 11, 2015

RATING: 4 ★★★★✩ Excellent!

In this Season 6 Premiere episode, the show picks up right after the events of the Season 5 Finale. It switches between past and present events, which are shown by the past events being in black and white and present events in color. Rick and the people of Alexandria are trying to lead a HUGE hoard of Walkers out of the nearby quarry and away from Alexandria.

The episode intermittently switches to past events, starting from what happened right after Reg was killed by Pete and Rick killing Pete, and shows how the people are feeling about it and the new dynamic within the community. There's a lot of distrust and hostility, especially coming from an Alexandrian named Carter. But then the very serious problem of the quarry full of Walkers comes up and they have to work through their differences to protect the community and its people.

There's a lot of character growth in this episode. It truly amazes me how much the writers can fit in just one minute of the show. And then there was a HUGE cliffhanger at the end. That cliffhanger is just torturous. All in all, it was a good solid episode and a great start to the season. I was just a bit overwhelmed with the back and forth between the past and present.
