Spoilers for 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' Season 1 Episode 7 'Truth or Dare'

The teen-centric spinoff of 'The Walking Dead' has not been a huge hit with the fans so far. However, the latest episode focusing on one of the series' adult protagonists has fans noticing a major improvement in quality.

Whether it's because the show is telling a more compelling story about the start of the apocalypse, or because it feels like the plotting is tighter, or because Huck (Annet Mahendru) is simply their favorite character on this show, this episode has turned out to be the hit with fans that the series has long needed.

"This episode of #TWDWorldBeyond has cleared up any question I may have had as to who my favorite character is on this show! I Huck!" wrote a fan on Twitter. "Who would have thought that the Huck centered episode would be the best one so far?" wrote a fan on Reddit, adding, "I mean this is the first time I don't have too much to complain about."

"I appreciate that Huck is more of a believable character now. A nickname that allows for anonymity means she could reinvent herself while still being herself — the woman who did what she did is still the woman who helps Hope deal with her own actions," wrote another fan.



 

Other fans of the show are praising the flashback sequence, telling the story of how the Marines first dealt with the zombie threat as it rose - something that's been relatively unexplored in 'The Walking Dead'.

"Seeing the outbreak from the perspective of Huck and the military is absolutely fascinating. They really had no clue how to contain things at all. It’s no wonder the disease overtook the whole world," posted a fan account on Twitter. "LOVE this end of the world flashback stuff," wrote another fan. "Huck's backstory was awesome. Especially the use of thermal vision to differentiate between walkers and real people. I'm mad at the writers that it took seven episodes to give us a bada** Huck," wrote a viewer, on Reddit.



 

 



 

For those who have stuck it out with a show they've not been enjoying all that much, this is definitely the episode they've been waiting for. A plot that intrigues them, some compelling background for a person who is now a solid fan-favorite, and a tense action scene that gives fans the kind of stories they tune in to 'The Walking Dead' universe for — something that the show can hopefully keep up for the rest of the season.

The next episode of 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' airs on November 22 at 10 pm ET on AMC.
