well, that episode sucked balls overall.  Just one giant cluster of nonsense.  These dudes really suck at telling a story.  You have the fake it till you make it group randomly calling in a Tiger to take care of the job, Rick and Daryl randomly taking an outpost all by themselves because that makes sense, repeat of the Satellite outpost going down ending with repeated story of kill them/no we are better than that routine out of nowhere despite mauling down hundreds in the episode,  the let's pin them in group battle.  Just a whole lot of action that went nowhere and was confusing. 

Hope everyone enjoyed the Daryl man pain flashback when he saw the similar cell. 

I mean big picture the realization Rick has when he made it into the nursery was a pretty good moment in terms of Rick being forced to realize what he is vs what they are.  The Morales thing seemed to be a weak "wow, look at this moment". 

also what is the ratio of Saviors vs Team America? Abe/Glenn/Sasha/Tara's girlfriend vs what has to be hundreds and hundreds? 4 to 1000 at this point?  What are there 50,000 Saviors at this point?

Yeah that episode seemed OK as it was happening, but looking back now it's like "WTF that was dogshit".

 

I should have known the entire thing would have been awful after the absurdly bad intro. Go back and watch the first bad guys fall down after being shot. It's actually kind of hilarious. They actually brace themselves and kind of just lay down. Just awful direction. And the boss savior lady admonishing the guy, that entire scene was grade A horsepoo.

To recap the episode, it was about 90% close-ups with generic automatic gunfire audio. The other 10% was dramatic string swells.

When did this turn in to one of the worst shows on TV?

 

Random thoughts:

-Norman Reedus got fat. I guess Daryl has been living large on those rations.

-the talented actors that play Morgan and Carol are absolutely being wasted, but at least Morgan is going to go all psycho again it seems

-The directors have caught up to the piss poor writing on this show. Just an awful episode all around

lol 1 hour long of:

Dramatic face shots...

Endless guns and ammo. Does anyone else remember that Negan and the Garbage group took ALL of Rick's guns? I guess the Kingdom was fully loaded with all these weapons/ammo they are now using, even though they were training people to use spears and staves??!?!?! lol

I can hardly get past an Ezekiel scene now. The dude obviously has the chops, but they are wasting it on making everything he says so over the top and unbelievable that it just comes off as hot garbage. Then, whenever I hear his voice, I just see him as Cyborg from Teen Titans cracking some jokes with Robin and co.

We're being set up for another "Morgan Goes Crazy" arc. Basically, it is their cheapest/least effort route to write the character off. Terrible use of Lennie James.

LOL That guy "Todd" on the Saviors side of things that the she-Negan was being rough handed with before the attack was from Boy Meets World back in the day. He also did some One Tree Hill IIRC, but I guess getting this small part on TWD was just because he's a fan or something. Maybe he survived and will end up being a bigger character on the show.

"Let's attack this outpost and steal all these weapons with a team of 5 guys, who we'll be sure to split up pretty much as soon as we go inside!"

Oh look, a baby I most likely just made into an orphan. Oh well, onto the next room!

Hello Morales! It'll be good to have you back for like two episodes for the closure of knowing what happened to you and your family I didn't really care about all those seasons ago.

Cue ending dramatic face shots...

This show... lol... I mean, I will keep watching, but it is basically getting to the point where it is unintentionally mimicking a Monty Python show...

Now how the hell does the Tiger know who to attack?

I really don't know why I am still watching this show.

it is like he called in an airstrike.

The King literally told someone to go back to Kingdom, unlock the cage....that guy then teleported to the Kingdom and had the Tiger air dropped in front of the Ezekiel to take out the random person they were searching for. 

I mean TWD IMO has been shown to be envious of GOT IMO.  I think that was what sparked the whole Glenn/Dumpter thing was the Jon Snow envy.  But TWD does teleporting worse than GOT too.

Only thing I enjoyed was the baby. I don't read the comics but that has to be neagans daughter right? Maybe it was a "weapon" not guns that Dwight sent them there for. If he told Rick he was going to kidnap neagans child he wouldn't have went through with it. Why else would that baby be in a secluded place with at least 4 guards and no woman in site?  Probably dwights wife and neagans daughter.

I assumed it was the daughter of the dude Rick killed given the tattoo connection to the baby's name on the wall

Dwight knew exactly who was there and it doesnt look like they found any guns. I doubt it is just a random baby but I guess it could be.

So, go figure, but there are some pretty heavy rumors that indeed:

Chandler Riggs (Carl) wanted off the show, and that the show writers gave in and wrote him/killed him off either on the midseason finale or second half premier.



These are still just what they are, rumors, but apparently there are some sort of indicators that it could be rooted in truth.



So, I will probably just stop watching if this is true. I know I said I wouldn't, but it would be pretty pointless at that point.

I still don't know if I believe the rumors, so I'll have to wait and see, but LOL if true.

I don't think it impacts TV like the comic if true.  Only ones that view that character as a strong focal point are those who are bringing the comic baggage into TV land IMO. 

I mean, per comic fans some of the greatest characters......simply suck to TV only viewers.  Then of course one of the TV's biggest and most favorite characters doesn't even exist in the comic.  Just plays out different.  I would have no problem with it.....if done right.  

However, if that were true.  I would suspect TV would screw up how they did it.

Herschel, Glenn, Michonne, Maggie, Jesus, Rick, Morgan all simply suck to tv viewers?

Or did they just poo the bed when it came to casting characters like Andrea?

Also, Carol exists in the comics, she just died during the prison arc, and Daryl is just some sad fug wish fulfillment for beta incels.
