Well, there goes another episode of The Walking Dead, under our collective belt. And this one was a real doozy! ‘Hostiles and Calamities‘, was a little jump back in time to see what happened with Eugene, when he got to the Sanctuary. It also gave us some insight into the Daryl’s escape, and who helped him. Dwight was also a key player in this episode.
The best part of 711, was the appearance of Eugene’s downward spiral into Neganism. He was such a scared rabbit, when he was let out of the truck. But as Negan, started the cruel invasion into Eugene’s head, something snapped. Eugene decided to bring up the all encompassing lie, that he told Abe back in the beginning. To save his own life, and to further his acceptance into the Negan world, Eugene, brought up the Human Genome Project. As ridiculous as it sounded, Eugene was successful in getting into Negan’s head, and making him believe the story.
Eugene is rewarded with a wonderful furnished apartment, stocked with books, video games, and a food filled fridge! Negan is so damn impressed with Eugene that he offers him some wives to play with in the meantime. Of course, Eugene is not one to go for that, but instead, played video games and showed off some tricks for the girls. He pulled out some ‘Bill Nye the science guy’ things to show the girls. He made a volcanic explosion of sorts, much to the excitement of the ladies. When they ask him later to make poison pills for one of the girls, so that she can take her own life, he agrees and gets all the supplies needed. Later he refuses to give them the poison as he realizes it’s for Negan.
In this extended episode, Dwight’s ‘Daryl’ problem, and the aftermath was featured. When he realized Daryl was missing, along with a his motorcycle, he lost it! Figuring out that Sherry was the one responsible for Daryl’s escape, he really is at a loss.Taking a trip down memory lane to his old home he shared with his wife Sherry, who has also skipped out, we feel some empathy for Dwight. Sherry has left him a bittersweet ‘dear John’ letter. He was once a good man, but Sherry has seen what he became, and has decided to leave for good. The mess that comes after is Dwight’s scheming to blame someone other than Sherry, fearing repercussions from Negan. He sets up Dr, Carson to take the fall. Negan sets off to burn the Doctor’s face, but decides at the last moment to throw him in the furnace. Brutal! Eugene is forced to watch, as to cement the fact, that rules can’t be broken. In the end, Eugene is approached by Negan. When Negan goes to ask the ‘ question’, Eugene blurts out, “I am Negan”, putting a big smile on Negan’s face.
