Spoilers for 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' Season 1 Episode 6 'Shadow Puppets'

'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' has not had the warmest reception. A vision of a post-apocalyptic world from the point of view of the teenagers who've grown up with it was an experimental risk from the standard format. It's largely fallen flat with the fans, who feel that the teen protagonists are too incompetent to be enjoyable and wish the plot would speed along faster. The latest episode, however, features shadow puppetry and teases for more CRM development coming soon as fans are finally warming up to the series with an episode that's gotten the best reception yet.

Whether it's the writing, the direction or the new characters introduced, something about this episode really hit home with the fans. "That episode was different... wow," writes one Twitter user. "#TWDWorldBeyond 2nite was brilliantly magnificent can't wait till next week I'm so head over in ❀ with this #ZombieTVShow so very much y'all," writes a fan. "First great episode of World Beyond, fantastic episode of Fear. Really getting "The end" vibes from both shows. We're in the endgame I think. Really beautiful stuff," writes a viewer, who's getting the most out of a 'The Walking Dead' Sunday.



 



 



 

The shadow puppet play that bookended the episode was the biggest hit with the fans. "I must say, that I loved that opening and ending montage. Probably the coolest thing that's been done on this show," writes a fan. "absolutely fantastic episode of #TWDWorldBeyond that part with the little paper movie of the end of the world was beautiful and sad" writes another. The puppet show replayed the end of the world, first with a voiceover from Iris Bennett (Aliyah Royale), and then as a silent musical montage at the end.



 



 

Another thing that the fans appreciate was finally getting a tease for more CRM inclusion in the show. The CRM, who was a big part of Episode 1, has largely been absent from the series – appearing either in post-credit scenes or in late-show moments seemingly unconnected to the series' main plot. Next episode, however, the group will head to a refueling station for their newly-acquired truck, where they are expected to run into a contingent of CRM soldiers. That, plus another post-credits CRM scene has fans excited for what comes next. "THESE CRM SCENES HAVE MY BLOOD PRESSURE SKYROCKETING," writes a fan. "This show is finally picking up speed looks like next week they get into CRM territory," writes another.



 



 

It may have taken them a while to get there, but 'World Beyond' has finally hit home with its viewers - hopefully, it will be able to keep this up for the rest of the season.

The next episode of 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' airs at 10 PM E.T. on November 15, on AMC.
