Read More about The Walking Dead, Ep. 5.04, “Slabtown” another solid entry worth discussing
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; The Walking Dead does well with episodes featuring fewer characters that we know. “Slabtown”, written by Matthew Negrete, is a testament to the improvement of storytelling ever since Scott M. Gimple took over as show-runner. That the hour maintains the quality and entertainment of previous episodes without Rick and the gang, is good news. Putting Beth, and only Beth, in the spotlight back in season two would have been ill advised, but ever since last season’s “Still,” Beth is a character we’ve all come to know and love. Of course “Still” is one of those episodes mentioned above, in which the writers focus solely on fewer characters; in that case the focus was solely on Beth and Daryl, and unsurprisingly “Still” is one of last season’s best instalments. Beth’s time travelling with Daryl.
