After the dreamlike beginning of “Out of the Ashes (11 × 05), which due to its particularity is close to the attractive bewilderment caused by several initial sequences of the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead (Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, since 2015), the from “On the Inside” (11×06) cannot present us with a more classic situation of The walking dead (Frank Darabont and Angela Kang, since 2010): characters cornered by zombies.
With a nice crafting of dramatic tension by director Greg Nicotero (Creepshow), who repeats in chapter thirty-five of the AMC series or forty-eight of the franchise if we count those of The Walking Dead: Webisodes (2011-2013). But what interests us is the identity of these characters; Connie (Lauren Ridloff) and Virgil (Kevin Carroll), whose hair has not been seen since “A Certain Doom” (10×16).
However, screenwriter Kevin Deibolt, supervised by showrunner Angela Kang (Terriers) and whose experience boils down to writing in Borgia (Tom Fontana, 2012-2014), Copper (Fontana and Will Rokos, 2012-2013) and Kevin ( Probably) Saves the World (Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, 2017-2018), does not want to immediately satisfy our curiosity about them, but to lengthen it a bit and focus on the other groups of apocalypse survivors. A) Yes, ammo is reserved to retain interest viewers during the entire episode.
The scariest thing from ‘the Walking Dead’ in quite some time
Actually, “On the Inside” pull certain threads coming from “Rendition” (1×04), about Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), and the aforementioned “Out of the Ashes”, linked the latter to Connie’s circumstances since “Squeeze” (10×09), the guilt that Carol feels Peletier (Melissa McBride), very helpful in solving a disturbing brown from the previous chapter with Aaron (Ross Marquand) out of his mind, and Kelly’s (Angel Theory) determination.
Secondly, the minimalist soundtrack and alarming notes composed by Sam Ewing (The Walking Dead: Red Machete) and Bear McCreary (Foundation), with their occasional bursts of battered rope, it is essential to build the tension to which we alluded.
And use one of the characteristics of Connie and Lauren Ridloff (Sound of Metal) herself, who is great here, to give us a curious auditory experienceCinematic and terrifying in the end, it’s a clever move. Especially in a horror plot like this, whose elements bring to mind three episodes of The X-Files (Chris Carter, since 1993). At the beginning, “Red Museum” (2×10); and then it seems that “On the Inside” transforms into something between “The Jersey Devil” (1×05) and “Home” (4×02).
With much, the best of the chapter and the creepiest thing on The Walking Dead in quite some time. And also, as if it weren’t enough, take the opportunity to offer AMC viewers a few moments of pure panic that remind us of a certain terrible scene from Scream 2 (Wes Craven, 1997) in which the intrepid reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) and Sheriff Dewey Riley (David Arquette) are involved.
The uncertain ground that Daryl Dixon treads
But it is not a negligible complement Daryl Dixon’s difficult position after his delirious baptism of fire. While Lauren Ridloff’s Connie and Kevin Carroll’s Virgil (The Leftovers) live their own nightmare in the house of horrors, the great crossbow survivor plays without his gadget. a complicated game of poker among his enemies, hiding his cards and maneuvering to favor the supervening family to which he has always been loyal.
