Dale and Herschel provided good male role models, and there was a moral thread then.  Now it's all just disjointed crap.  But I continue to watch, as I'm invested in a Negan's death.  And Simon and Dwight also must die.

Is Jesus really gay? I must have missed that part. I was kind of rooting for Maggie and Jesus. I know it hasn't been very long since Glenn got whacked,  but these are strange times....

What about Carl, once he grows up a few more years?  I know they seem to have paired him off with Enid, but I'm hoping she gets eaten.

I thought about him, but I don't even know how old he's supposed to be. I've favored killing of Rick and letting him develop into a strong lead since season 4, but I doubt it will happen. He acts like so much of a kid at present it's tough to imagine him in that context.

Quote
I would suggest Morgan, but that man has way too much baggage and can be nearly as unstable as Rick.

Yeah, Morgan, Rick and to a lesser extent Daryl are all a little nuts and not really worth bothering with IMO

Quote
I'm not sure about the King -- there's just something in his scenes with Carol that make me feel he's interested.  And since he drops the whole Camelot facade around her, I don't have a hard time imagining something coming of that.

I could see that, but he needs more character development first. I couldn't see Sasha or Michonne with him though. Maybe he could talk his way in to Sasha's heart the way Bob did but I feel like Michonne would find it all bullshit.

Quote
And speaking of the Kingdom, what about Jerry?  He strikes me as the goofy but lovable teddy bear type.

Is the cobbler dude? I couldn't remember his name. I do like him but again, no real character development. I feel like he would really appreciate Rosita as a real person and just be kind to her, but I honestly don't know.

I've missed Dale immensely. Herschel too but I really liked Dale.

I miss Merle too. Not that he added anything admirable to the group but he made for interesting conflict without someone having to run in bashing skulls all the time.

And a lot of lesser characters that seemed really interesting but they used as walker bait. Like the prisoners they let join them and then immediately died.

Yeah he "came out" kinda ridiculously to Maggie last episode or two ago. They were just talking about fitting in and he mentions past BOYFRIENDS really obviously and pauses and then everything moved on. It felt forced but also glossed over to me, which is silly - either it's going to be a plot point and make sure people notice, or it's not and who gives fuck.

Also there is SO MUCH Daryl/Jesus stuff online, so I guess the should could fan pander that in to existence too...

I'm OK with that too. I had hoped for a captain that wasn't a white guy, but I like still like Jason Isaacs.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

They mentioned that on the Talking Dead, and good for her!  I'm just glad this pretty much ensures she won't come back as Negan's pet Walker in Season 8 (I don't remember seeing Walker Sasha killed).

Jesus and Maggie took her out. It wasn't well done - she was really only identifiable by her shirt and that Maggie started sobbing.
