If you’d like to catch up on last week’s recap of Stephen King’s The Stand on CBS All Access before “The Walk, ” you can do so here.
The cold open of “The Walk” imparts us back to the Trashcan Man( Ezra Miller ), who has showed a nuclear weapon silo. He cuts the warhead off the missile and then quantities it onto a buggy, in spite of the notifications of his Geiger counter. Then, the commencement of the name card.
The Stand- “The Walk”
From there, we verify Harold Lauder( Owen Teague) and Nadine Cross( Amber Heard) as they explosion the projectile from the amphitheater above Boulder. After his little avowal that he’s doing this of his own free will, Lauder makes a joke over the radio( although I various kinds of envisage the walkie on the other aim isn’t working any more ).
But Lauder’s mood soon sours, and he tells Cross not to touch him any more , now that Flagg has what he required and the Boulder Free Zone is no more. Lauder says that Flagg will “give him” a woman, and Cross will go to Flagg, before saying he wants to get on the road. Cross doesn’t seem that are happy with the arrangement.
Elsewhere, the residents of the Boulder Free Zone are recieving therapy for the hurts that they sustained when the projectile was exploded at Mother Abagail’s home. Larry Underwood( Jovan Adepo) the negotiations with Glen Bateman( Greg Kinnear ), confirming that Frannie( Odessa Young) and the newborn are uninjured.
Bateman confirms that Lauder built the device and Cross facilitated sit it.
Meanwhile, Ray Brentner( Irene Bedard) is sitting beside Mother Abagail( Whoopi Goldberg) when the latter awakes and says that she needs everyone beside her immediately. Stu Redman( James Mardsen) wakes Frannie, and she immediately agrees to go to Abagail in spite of her injuries.
Abagail tells them that she has neglected because she has hesitated in her religion. She was of the view that she guessed the late Nick would guide them, but now it must be Stu who will lead them west, to New Vegas.
Abagail tells them God requires them to undertake the outing immediately, even though one of them will fall. She says that Frannie is not to go on the pilgrimage. And then she recites the lines that “weve heard” her say over the cold open of the first episode. Then she dies.
On the road to New Vegas
As they travel their motorcycles along the road to New Vegas, Cross jeers Lauder by speeding up. Then she decelerates as they approach a sharp turn … and Lauder goes over the edge, impaling himself on some disciplines below. He pleads with Cross to shed him a lasso, but she tells him its better this acces- then says that he can finish it himself, if he’s brave.
Cross is not so likable to Lauder in” The Walk .”
Back in Boulder, a dejected Goldsmith invites Redman how long it will take them to walk to Vegas, and Redman estimates they’ll arrive at the end of February, around the same time as the babe is due. Goldsmith says that she meditates Abagail did speak for God, and that the people in the BFZ are just slice for him to play with, while the person or persons in Vegas are the pieces for the other side.
Redman elegies that he didn’t listen to Goldsmith about Lauder, and then attests that he’ll try to return. Underwood causes his guitar to Joe before leaving Boulder. Then Brentner, Underwood, Redman, Bateman, and Kojak gather to have their illustrate taken by Goldsmith before they leave Boulder, discussing logistics as they go.
Pictures on Pearl Street in the Boulder Free Zone.
Lauder is still bleeding to demise. He snacks a few cases chews of a Payday bar and then draws out a notebook.
Meanwhile, the five characters from the BFZ continue their journey.
We return to Lauder to find him even more inadequately off. He introduces aside his notebook and searches up at a vulture before shooting himself in the head.
Then we get a Lord of the Rings style montage of the five BFZ on their expedition, watched by crows the whole way. They progress a billboard that used to say “The Lamb’s Reward is the Laughter of Their own children, ” but which has been altered to read “The Lamb’s Reward is the Slaughter of His Children, ” along with the additive of red junctions to the advert’s picture of a field.
The BFZ party comes upon a route of Payday saloons leads to an overturned motorcycle, which then leads to Lauder’s corpse. Underwood insists that they not leave Lauder’s body uncovered, and uses his way down the hill towards the corpse. He receives Lauder’s notebook, which isn’t precisely ashamed, but which confirms that Lauder played out of his own free will … and out of a lifelong spirit of cowardace. Underwood embraces the body with his leather fur and then leaves it behind.
Cross is traveling through the desert on her motorcycle when she stops, believing that she sees Flagg- but he appears to be a mirage. Nevertheless, she procures a route of white-hot arise petals that should contribute to a welcome mat. Soon she finds herself within Flagg’s penthouse.
Flagg( Alexander Skarsgard) is wearing the white arise on his lapel and drinking( surprise, surprise) a glass of milk. Flagg responds Cross and she tells him that Lauder didn’t make it. Flagg says that Lauder was never meant to “ascend to Olympus, ” and that his purpose had been served- unlike Cross.
Flagg and Cross begin making out, and Flagg remarks that Cross restrained herself “pure” for him, and now she gets to be his wife. Then they bang, which seems to start off passionate but then becomes terrifying, as Flagg is replaced with a Mummy-style CGI monster. Hey, I’m not here to kinkshame, but Cross does not seem into it.
The Walk … some more
The five personas from the BFZ are still walking. They reach a point at which the route is interrupted by a long chasm. All five members of them make it down, and then Kojak and Underwood have constituted it back up on the other side … but the must is pretty tense. Brentner stimulates it, and then Bateman slide back down but it still seems okay.
Redman reaches the top and remarks that there’s nothing to it … before the edge crumbles away. Redman topples down the hill, smashing his leg in the process. His friends hasten to his area and cure him pluck his leg into arrange. The theory of camping there is put forward but Redman says that Abagail knew this would happen- one of them would “fall.” He demands they go on without him.
Underwood and the twenty-third psalm.
This leads to an allusion to the 23 rd Psalm: “Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will horror no evil.” Redman stimulates Underwood recite the words, and aim it, and then tells him that he’s in charge now. Bateman leaves Redman with some lozenges that can either help with the sorenes or, at the proper dosage, specify release.
Meanwhile, Cross seems to have ascended to a brand-new position after accomplishing her relationship with Flagg. The duo gets into a automobile and psyches toward Vegas.
The Walk: Long Bateman with Kojak in” The Walk .”
At the bottom of the ditch, Redman isn’t doing well. He sounds barking and Kojak appears at the leading edge above him.
Elsewhere, Bateman is calling for Kojak. Then, they examine honking, and an repugnant limousine arrives. Out of the back sounds Lloyd Henreid( Nat Wolff ), in his now-characteristically flamboyant garb. Henreid tells them that Flagg told him when they’d be coming out of the canyon to the minute, remarking that it’s a crazy world.
The limo arrives in New Vegas, which is decorated with flags of Flagg and crucified people. They pass captives being forced to transform the statue in front of Ceaser’s Palace into the likeness of Flagg.
A broadcast of Flagg’s voice, set to the sound of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic, ” states that they won’t tolerate whiners, and declares that the age-old spaces didn’t work. They deliver a pulsate that’s taking place on the street.
At the Inferno, Flagg levitates above the flooring in his penthouse as Cross reviews on. Cross, who now appears to be visibly pregnant, responds Bateman, Underwood, and Brentner as they arrive at the hallway of the Inferno- all while “Baby Can You Dig Your Man” plays in the background.
