Excited for what's to come in February, but wish it was already happening in the episodes we watched.

 

Interested to see how they get weapons for this war.

I seem to remember a community that had quite a bit of firepower that had no men...the kicker for all of this is that Rick and Aaron found a few firearms...but no ammunition. Who can make ammunition?

The questions are:

 

1- Did they stash weapons or ammo in those graves or somewhere else?

 

2- How do you go about sneaking in and stealing weapons from those women, actually you want to recruit them to go kill Negan with you....

It was a real hoot watching Negan troll the castaways. But there are too many main characters to follow now. They get like one scene in the sun and that's their half-season.

It's the same way in the comic, too many people are drawn the same it gets hard to care about most of them.

 

But not to fret, soooooo many people are going to die this season.

Well, they seem to have found the ladies and the weapons.

Who is that last group that had them surrounded?

I assumed it was the women that Tara encountered, but then Rick smiled as if he reckognized someone so I'm not sure. Maybe he was just excited about potential allies.

What did you guys think about lasts episode?

As expected, it was a bit slower. I did absolutely LOVE the double car steel cable clothesline zombie mower, epic stuff right there.

 

It layed some important ground work for the rest of the season. But as many will point out it could have been done in half an episode. Personally, I don't want to rush this.

I thought it was "boring" but I sort of expected it would be...I don't mind it though but like you said it could have been done in 30 minutes.

On the other hand, it could have been done in 3 episodes. The way the first half of the season went with each episode focusing on one specific place, thank God they sped up the pace to include Hilltop, the Kingdom, and Alexandria all within the run time.

I think that is what was implied by the Director on Talking Dead.

Exactly. I want this show to last another 10+ years if possible.

How could it have been done in 30 minutes?

 

Rick to Gregory: will you help us?

Gregory: no!

 

Cut to next scene, already at the kingdom

 

Rick to Ezekiel: will you help us?

Ezekiel: no!

 

Rick: well sh#t, lets just wander around and hope we come across people with guns. Great, it happened!

 

Rushing a storyline is not building a storyline. Sometimes a slow a steady build is worth the payoff.

I think they meant, 30 minutes commercial-free ;)

Ha...I get what you are saying but I think that it was clear or seemed clear that the answers were going to be "no" so it could have sped it up a bit...

 

I don't know, maybe I am just bitching for the sake of bitching.

It wasnt that clear that the kingdom was going to say no. I thought he was going to say yes after his talk with that kid outside of the bedroom

A television show will never please 100% of the audience. Some people want sped up storylines so they can skip the boring parts. Then the other half complains about storylines being rushed and sloppy and the writing is terrible.

Agreed. I thought he was going to say yes. I do think he will come around though in the end.

A YT channel I watch that does recaps of a few shows I like made it seem as if Ezekiel has mind made up that he WILL help them and is just making Rick work for it a bit more. It makes sense I suppose.

I think it is pretty obvious that all of the small communities are going to team up for an epic battle against the saviors

Exactly but it wouldnt be a drama without a little drama haha

I didn't think the group at the end was Oceanside since there were dudes in the group.

 

I assume Rick saw Heath and/or Father Gabriel at the end of the episode.

 

I liked the episode and didn't really feel as though it dragged.

Me either. At all, really. It had a feeling of tenseness the whole time, I thought. After seven seasons, it's actually a pretty remarkable feat that the show writers can still make me feel on edge with main characters almost getting bit or swarmed by zombies, even though the zombies are almost an afterthought as far as survival goes these days.

Exactly. I mean they were just punching them off to get into the vehicle in the highway, and I was still worried he was maybe going to get bit there.

He's the black guy now doing 24. He was on the bridge with Tara when she fell over and when she went back to find him found tire tracks and (I can't remember what now) laying on the ground.

Someone else said that, but I didn't think it was actually him.

 

Is it for sure? I thought they just looked alike.

It's for sure. He just doesn't have his dreads/braids wig in other shows.

FYI, there was someone in the back of the car Gabriel left in.

Lol well yeah, we saw them pop up. I think it was the person from the boat at the end of the mid season finale outside the gates lurking

Hey look everyone, Matty is pretending he noticed! Make fun of him!

 

I think it's possible Gabriel could have been the backseat passenger, perhaps he wasn't the one leaving in the vehicle. Maybe he is being kidnapped or is hiding.

Dramatic characterization. This is the weirdest group they've encountered to date.

Were the trash people from the comics?

 

 

I thought there were some glaring logic flaws in this episode, but I didn't mind it, really. I just wish the exposition of why Gabriel wrote something about the boat would have been given a little bit more clearly. That boat episode was so long ago in real-life time, I had completely forgotten that there was somebody watching them until after they had spelled it all out.
