"It's more than just hope. What, are we just going to kill all of them? Finding some way forward, that's harder. That's something more. That's how it's gotta be." -Carl, who spent his adolesence in the apocalypse. I know it must sound profound when you write it, but having a kid say it outloud is obnoxious.
She is the only believable character.
This would be a lot more tolerable if I could finish this shit in one weekend.
She drew first blood. It's the Zombie Apocalypse, old lady.
All the Saviors had to do was run up the stairs and put up a barricade. Not totally easy in the moment, sure, but you don't think it's possible Negan can roll up to Alexandria after that?
Why am I doing this?
Whats-her-face finds out D is the saboteur, so she shoots him... in the arm? Come on. He had just gunned down like half a dozen Saviors but she decides she wants to question him right then and there? Just cap him.
Maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about, but people are walking through smoke bombs like they're Razzberry Mint hookah mist.
He doesn't seem to be dying, so I guess the lemon juice and garlic powder cured him. That's bullshit.
They were just asking for him, so they could kill him. Also, shoot his fucking legs if you want him alive.
Are there any fans that are like "yeah, this is still good?"
Rick HAD NEGAN. He knocked Negan to the ground, took his bat, and... poked him a bit. Have you learned nothing? This should be The Walking Dead's version of Cleganebowl, but it was a worse bout than when Rick kicked that wife beaters' ass.
He bearhugs her and instead of doing ANYTHING ELSE, he starts talking trash while she still has her sword? She backs him up like 3 feet into the nearest hard surface and he's all "ouch owie my bones" and just lets go, giving her the opportunity to stab his face.
This should have been all taken place in three episodes. It was so drawn out that I can't imagine anyone even fucking cares anymore.
All of that screen time in previous episodes and they are totally MIA.
And why bother putting a bandaid on it? *Edit: People are saying Carl got bit a few episodes ago when he was killing zombies with that rando. Cool. That would have been a nice moment to actually see. I'm sure the actor, Chandler Riggs, is a nice fellow but I'm glad we're seeing the end of Carl. Time to pass the hat down to Judith.
The midseason finale culminates into a roaring "meh." I'm done. When does Game of Thrones come back?
