so what was Abraham talking about?

 

"we'll talk to em, but not just yet..."



He was just talking about timing. This episode clarified that point. After escaping Terminus and the emotions over all the reunions, he didn't want to piss them off by asking too much. He was waiting until they all sort of calmed down and were considering a long-term plan of what to do so he could convince them.



This episode was great. Got a glimpse of who took Beth, but it doesn't look like we'll see anything from that for at least another 2 weeks. Next week is gonna be awesome. Hope they don't run the Hunters arc too long. Should just be this next episode, really. MAYBE one other episode after. Regardless, I'm sure they'll handle it perfectly.

Impressed by the start of this season. Some of the best writing thus far. Dialogue has improved. Pacing has improved. It's like the writers are starting to really "get it" (and I'll note, I haven't been a huge critic of much on this show, including the pacing and dialogue. So, when I say it improved, I am saying it seems a bit more natural. Nice to hear Rick talk in regular voice instead of whisper voice).

Being taught why things are a certain way should be a priority with science and history, but with math just knowing it is should be enough. At least at that early level.



Science and math often go hand-in-hand. And it's about consistency in education. You don't just teach kids how things work for the first 5 years of their education, and then mandate that they understand why they work that way. Math is something that needs to be understood, not just known. The idea of "just teach them how it works and let them get through school" is why the US is falling behind in education. This is important because we're also falling behind in science. You can't have good scientists if they don't understand complex science, and you can't understand complex science if you've had a watered down education. Gotta raise the bar. We shouldn't be relying on the small portion of society who just have the desire to be scientists to be our only scientists. The whole country understanding science results in an improved society where we can all understand how AND why things work in order to effect change that benefits the world.

So, I'm starting to worry about longevity. This game is fun, but it's noticeably worse (for me) if I don't have a friend on to play with. Playing this game in the quiet is not as fun (since when you get thrown into match making with strangers on strikes, they never have their mic, which makes communication and strategy impossible). I'd rather play madden if I'm playing alone. Or beating Last of Us again.

Hopefully the story DLC they release will be good. I'm still enjoying the grinding and some of the strikes. Some are getting a little repetitive, just because the strike playlists seem to run in the same order over and over again. The daily and weekly heroic stuff offers something a bit more, so that's good. I like the limited events, like the queen's wrath and now the iron banner. I just don't want to be sitting in January/February wondering when something more is going to be coming our way with this game. My thoughts were this game was going to fill ALL my gaming time, and I find myself playing madden more and more lately.

Star will be fine, I think. Dude is being gameplanned against up front, hence why Short is having a great year so far and is head and shoulders above our other DTs. Once teams start having to account for both at all times (you can't without giving up second level blocking), we'll see the Star that we saw last year, I believe.
