Although rumor is Daryl is going to get his head bashed in... He certainly seems to have more dumb luck than control of his own destiny lately.

Daryl is the super-popular hillbilly, right?  I hope he doesn't get killed -- I have so many friends who are completely starry-eyed about him, I'll be hearing lamentations for months.

Yes. To be fair,



I dunno if I'll keep watching if they kill him. Unless Jesus turns out to have a super hot friend or something. I mean, TWD is kinda a love-to-hate with eye candy deal for me. I openly stuck with watchinf season 2 because Shane kept taking his shirt off.

I like what happens at the end of that episode :D

Was that the Rick/Michonne mash-up PC is complaining about?
No.
Spoiler: show
Jesus (new guy) has been brought in and tied up. Cut to Rick and Michone laying asleep in bed the following morning. Off shot voice "Rick, we need to talk". Rick and Michone leap out of bed, gun and sword in hand. Jesus is standing there untied and unarmed. Cut to titles.

I don't like the "Jesus" dude - the show doesn't need another super strong character.  But I think he's going to lead them into the next crisis.  Maybe he has something to do with the Negan group, or something similar.

Well, I bit the bullet and watched the last three episodes of TWD and it wasn't nearly as horrifying as I thought it would be, or maybe I've finally gotten over my zombie-phobia.  Still, if the zombie apocalypse were to actually happen, and real zombies were as incapable of climbing as the fake zombies seem to be, I'd climb up the tallest, sturdiest tree I could find, build myself a little tree hut and live off a diet of nuts shared with squirrels and birds shared with my cat.   And I'd stay there forever and ever, even if I was told the apocalypse was over because it shouldn't have happened the first time so who knows that it wouldn't start up again?

Good grief, Gregory is an asshole.  It's a shame he can't find out that he's just a figurehead, his ego needs a good puncturing.

And what happened to Jesus' hair?  It was so nice in his first episode, and now it looks not only scraggly but much shorter.

So you would be Clementine. If somebody called Lee comes along you can trust them.

TWD zombies are more gross than they are scary.

I've never understood why trees aren't more widely utilized. I suppose it makes it difficult to flee when faced with an attack from other humans, but it's also pretty tough to flee a tiny-ass compound with 2 exits.

Anyhow... I feel like last night was one of those slow progression episodes. I have no new thoughts. I feel like it was somewhat rash to make the deal to take out Negan, but otoh they're going to end up facing off with him sooner or later so they may as well take the element of surprise and turn a profit doing it.

That's where I'm still catching up -- I thought that guy they took out last week with the bazooka (or whatever) was Negan.  So that was only a Negan group?

They are in the game "Telltales The Walking Dead" which is much better than the series (and the comic), the story is a little bit obvious but it works well.

Nope, he was only a minion of Negan.  I have a feeling that Negan is going to be the consummate psycho bad ass.  There will be blood.  I'm betting that someone will die.  Glenn has escaped twice now - he's toast IMHO, especially with Maggie pregnant (Oh! the Pathos!).  There are hints that something will happen with the Abraham/Sasha/Rosita group.  I'm betting we lose at least two of the core group in fighting Negan.  Just my gut feeling.

Hmmm.  So based on what I've learned so far, Rick should be sent in first since he ends up killing someone within 30 mins of meeting a new group.  Might as well take a shot that it'll be Negan this time.

So a priest, a lesbian and Jesus are sitting in a car...

I actually enjoyed last night's episode. Kinda fucking stupid that they wouldn't get a bit more intel on Negan before moving forward, I'm used to that sort of thing by now.

Father Gabriel is suddenly a very interesting character this season.

I'm a little surprised that Carol let herself get taken hostage by other women.  Maybe she was protecting Maggie.  Last night did fulfill my blood lust, however.  It was so cool to see so many of the Saviors get wiped out.  They deserved it.  I'm a little disappointed with how Abraham treated Rosaria, but that's life in the Zombie Apocalypse.

Abraham is an asshole. Not just for last episode. And I'm pretty sure Sasha knows it. I don't really care what happens there and I hope they don't waste too much time on it.
