thing is about? I've tried looking it up and can't find anything about it.
Basically, Rick is appointed the town's Sheriff upon arrival to Alexandria. He takes on the role happily and takes it seriously, knowing that in a big community like the one they have, it has to have order in order to survive. He ends up falling for a woman who is married to a guy named Pete (IIRC). He abuses her and her son, and Rick learns of it. He goes to confront him, and ends up in a fight in which Rick kills him. Then, the leader of the town, decides to step down and make Rick leader. But, the shot that killed Pete draws a group called the Scavengers to the Safe Zone, and all hell breaks loose
The "audition" for them being in Alexandria is like the comics, an interview process. Rick and the gang give their guns up, but stay cautious and can't quite fully trust the place. Rick pretends to "go along to get along", but he's planning something if/when poo hits the fan.
I think the season ends with the domestic violence thing mentioned earlier, and Rick taking control of Alexandria.
I'm hoping Morgan is already in Alexandria, and he and Rick see each other and have a great moment.
I think Cook is going to be looking to get a big number, but if push comes to shove, I don't see Cam being the type to let his agent screw him or the team over here. Cam will take a lower number if he has to for the sake of the team. Just a gut feeling.
Al is a double edged sword, really. He gives us a big man down low that is hard to stop. But, as pointed out, he just doesn't fit with the other 4 guys on the court at any given time. Sure, if we had a sure-fire 3-point shooter to kick to on the wing whenever they collapse on Al, it'd work better. We wouldn't have to go from fast paced, efficient passing to a snail's pace with Al working his man over in the post for 10 seconds. But, we don't have that right now. I think we just have to keep an eye on his minutes. Pepper him in and give Vonleh and Biyombo more minutes, because they're the future here. Jefferson is a stop-gap to develop those two more without throwing them to the wolves and when he was picked up, he was sorely needed.
Long term, Jefferson isn't a problem. He'll be gone and I think our offense will be more solid for it, both in his helping guys like Vonleh with their post work, and with just giving the young guys a chance to develop while doing good work on the boards to give us a chance to win now instead of just saying "we'll win whenever we get our young guys developed". And in that, as said a million times, our tempo on offense will pick up. Because honestly, our offense is fuging boring a lot of the time. Nice to see Al get like, 3 straight buckets down low every quarter, but still, I want us playing to our strengths. Efficient passes, get good mid-range looks, take the occasional 3, drive the lane with guys like Hendo. That's our identity and we need to stick to that.
If the radio transmission were not a figment of his imagination, it sounds as though there may be organized and identified factions fighting for control of what's left of civilization.
Notice how precise those bodies were cut? Bottom halves left and then all of those torsos with no arms or legs fell on the car at the end?
"The Wolves" are not animals, in my opinion.
I'm thinking they are animals, in a sense...but they're basically the pets of a group of savages. It will be a short arc with them, I'm sure.
Honestly, I really hope that the wolves are just in fact wolves and not some group. I wish I knew why those bodies were sliced up. Was definitely one of the creepiest aspects of this show. It was very, very dark. Just to see the bottom halves on the edge of the neighborhood, then have all the top halves come out of that one vehicle when Rick hit it.
