It's cool that they are developing thw made for TV Movies with Rick and such, but WHY did they not develop the Jesus Character??? Makes no sense? No wonder he didn't mind being killed off! Don't really think this will last past season 10.

    My main question is , which way does Negan go now?
    I'm no longer a fan of Michonne. She's always too moody and frowning... but I do like how the Whisperer's plot is starting to develop.

    Maybe another two good seasons left in it. STILL, it beats the totally POINTLESS Fear the Walking Dead!!!!! Has anyone tried watchin it??? Truly PAINFULL!!!


    They are so desperate, they have MORGAN joining them, and sorry, even THAT does nbot help!
    I am trying it now.... it can be very painful....

    The civil war part is made up for the show though. Apparently it's a time filler because the current arc is still being written and is a time jump forward. So the show is possibly choosing to fill the two year time jump with an internal conflict.

    What pisses me off is if they can take the liberties there to invent a story that doesn't exist in the comics then why can't they take the liberty to choose to kill negan instead of follow the comics? It's what a majority of fans wanted since Glen's face got beat to a pulp.

    Yeah, I usually give the show the benefit of the doubt. It's getting hard. I just feel like AMC and the writers really take the show for granted. The story is too repetitive. Character progression and dialog seem to get worse each season. I think, for me, it's time for a break.

    Yeah the whole thing just didn't sit well with me. But most of this season hasn't anyway. There will be fans that love it and continue to watch. I'll hear raves about how improved it is next season. But I don't care. I won't be tuning in with the die hards anymore. I hope this show fails and continues to plummet to lower and lower viewership every episode.

    I honestly don't have too much of a problem with Rick doing that. He does seem to regret his decision once he hears Negan talk about Carl. I don't think it's completely unreasonable for that to be his turning point.

    Pretty much everything else about the episode bothered me though. A long, drawn out sequence in which Negan appears to be 3 steps ahead of Rick and Co.? A moral discussion between good guys about whether or not to kill? None of this is original, and it has gotten old.

    The big twist? Negan was sabotaged by....a former Alexandrian? WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT?

    The scene with Maggie, Jesus, and Daryl really bothered me. The dark room, overly ominous music, and Maggie trying to play the villain card just felt forced. It was extremely cringe-worthy to watch.

    I see a lot of fans defending how it's following the comic. Well to that I say that just means the comic took a dumb turn as well. I just don't see how after everything that's happened, Rick just expects the rest of the group to accept turning a blind eye to it. And we spent all season with various people "trapping, or imprisoning" negan for an episode and he always gets out and returns to villainy. Why should I believe he won't again next season? Because he doesn't in the comics?

    The show has warn out it's welcome for me. It's lifecycle should've been 8 seasons. Really probably less. It should've ended with a stray from the comics by killing Negan and show ends. I don't care to see what's next.

    No they didn't. He is alive. And now they are hinting that next season will be civil war between Maggie and Rick. Ultra dumb.

    After this past episode I'm not longer that confident that we will get closure to this story arc in the finale next week. I'm sure the show just wants to set it up as Rick's group walking into an Ambush so that we don't see how they can work their way out of it. But I'm guessing maybe Rick new Negan would catch on to Dwight's plan and he has a plan B we won't see coming.

    But if they truly walk into an ambush and lose a lot of people and have to retreat into a season ending cliffhanger I'm done.
