While most discussions about Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead (Season 7, Episode 15: Something They Need) centered on Sasha’s (Sonequa Martin) fate and Eugene’s (Josh McDermitt) cowardice (or is he really pulling a long con?), I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge how amazing the “Water Walkers” were. The episode opened with discussions of the Seaside community juxtaposed against images of walkers emerging from the ocean after escaping the hull of a cruise ship.
Immeasurable props go out to Greg Nicotero‘s KNB EFX Group, the team behind all of TWD’s outstanding zombie FX. Sunday’s Water Walkers were standouts, even on a show full of amazing envelope-pushing gore and violence. Sporting salt water rot, seaweed adornments, and crustaceous growths, these guys were absolutely captivating—and beautifully terrifying!
