Yo I have to admitted I totally thought TWD would pussy out and kill off Eugene but I was wrong. Killing of both Glenn and Abraham was pretty redeeming IMO.

The show wasn't perfect and Rick's whole "I am gonna kill you, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow" was just way too over the top and inconceivable. No way Rick would be dumb enough to say that with guns to his whole crew including his son. That was just cheesy.

Although maybe the biggest inconceivable from this episode is you really expect me to believe Negan and his merry band of like 300 dudes (all dudes no chicks) would just leave fly ass Rosita back with her crew? She is like the last hot women alive. She would have gone down like a bunny in a wolf pack. Unless the show is going to surprise us with a big reveal that Negan's whole crew is a gay crew, that is just unbelievable.

Overall though good episode 4/5.

Yeah that's one area the walking dead show doesn't really get into, their post apocalyptic world is far less rapey then it would be in reality. All the chicks, from hot Rosita to the ugliest bag of bones would get raped. And kids would too. I think the show writers/producers probably know that but dont want to go down that road with how violent it already is. Game of Thrones took a ton of flak for their Sansa rape scene and even Jaime - Cersei rapey incest scene and that's an HBO show, the femi-tumblr-nazis would go insane if it was on "regular" cable.

That's true but they could at least have the male characters show some interest in the female characters haha.

Negan could just be like "Rosita, you're with me now"

I hate Morgan episodes.

They did a pretty good job introducing Ezekiel. He's an outrageous character so they did a good job making him believable.


My anticipation going into this season was that The Kingdom was going to be a huge and developed community more than capable of taking on The Saviors, and that most of this season was going to be Rick and crew trying to convince The Kingdom to join them in the fight against The Saviors.

It was an interesting/welcome twist that The Kingdom is already under the control of The Saviors.

Sad to say, but I've watched TWD for every character but Rick since season four. I can't get into his cowboy mentality. Like Mr. Nice Guy said, his constant swinging for the fence isn't buyable as it use to be.

Where is Dr. Dre?

This is going to be a looong build up. The problem with this show is there are 16 episodes a season so the pacing just gets fucked up, too much time to kill, so we're going to have probably another 11-12 episodes of Rick and Co being bitches and eventually team up with other groups, stockpile weapons and come up with a plan for a rebellion. I do like that they are following the comics much more though, with a few twists.

Yeah I've never been a big fan of Rick Grimes but I will say it's an interesting time for the Rick character though. He's the leader, has always been leader and now forced to be someones bitch. Then the revelation to Machonne that Judith his baby isn't even his, that it's Shane's, and that everything he's been doing is to keep them alive even if that means be a bitch. It's probably the most interesting time for his character since season one. The Negan story line really breathed new life into this show and if they stay true to the comics, which seems like the direction they are going, the next season or two will be good (minus the pacing issues die to having 16 episodes).
