Let's be frank: The series is clearly in decline.

Rick, and his band of survivors... aren't passive victims anymore; they're active and fighting back. It's the way longtime fans are used to seeing them, and it feels good.

This new season of The Walking Dead should be more fun to watch almost by default.

The AMC blockbuster has given viewers a welcome respite from getting kicked in the teeth, and that's made it much more enjoyable.

For now, though, The Walking Dead can get back to the bloody business of the battle for authority over this bleak world, as well as the souls of its central characters.

Well-done, but then TWD is always well-done. What's missing is the thrill of surprise, or the shock of surprise. "Mercy" at least offers a hint that one may be coming.

The urge to expand the story beyond the constant flight from mindless flesh-munchers is understandable. But much of the dread, as well as emotional urgency, has gone out of the show in the process.
