    Lots of teaser press out there saying we’ll be talking about this episode for a while.  
  • Hey, the thread got created before the episode aired, that's a good sign.
  • I’m quite certain we’ll be talking about this episode. Probably not in the way AMC is hoping though.

    It feels like they forgot how to write a well structured episode this season 
  • 15 minutes into this episode and I quit. It's going to be my first week relying only on the podcast to get caught up. I have punisher, the dark, etc episodes to watch, instead of wasting it on this incredibly telegraphed finale.

  • How the fuck can you think it’s a good idea to have TWO face montages in one episode?

    Why didn't Rick just slam Negan in the head when he had Lucille in his hands???
    He had the opportunity!

    I'm with ya. I'm done wasting more time on this show. I'll just wait till Tuesdays and the fellas can catch me up.

    Good on you for making it out Chandler Riggs. Have fun in college. Get a haircut my dude.

  • IMO would have been more effictive to have a gun shot at the end (we know they have to).

    I will say if they were going to kill him off, I’m kinda glad they did it like this. Like “oh yea I guess this show about the zombie apocalypse that people can get killed, by ya know, zombies. Almost forgot.”

    Holy Futz!

    What if the show is a brilliant metaphor for the zombie apocalypse?!?!

    What if this is the most genius meta work of all time?  Are we too plebeian to appreciate it?

    Are we the fools here?

    Hahhahahahahahah. Yes. Dick kick remixes of all dick kick remixes indeed. I was laughing my ass off.  So fucking stupid. My wife to the show at the end “Ffffffffuck youuuuuuu” lololol

    what shit

    I guess they just cut and run, and they don't even have to fight Negan now. Just move on to another location 


  • Welp, time to update that Watching Dead cover art!

    Makes me wonder if Gimple & Co are starting to massively diverge from the comics in part to avoid comparisons to the (vastly superior) source material.  Would make sense, especially if Kirkman is out of the picture.

    How do you dumpster a bite?  Get Maggie's doctor to operate and try to cut out any infection?  It's in the blood though by now, surely.

    Gimple confirmed saying “the bite will play out as bites play out in the show". But sounds like he will be back for one last adventure "He added that Carl, right now, is alive and he has some business to attend to"

    Talking Dead Nicole Brown is fuckin street team. She just put out of her mouth “this season’s story arc has been so satisfying” 

    Your sitting next to Gimple, but really?

    Of course, you have the Carl dying episode.

    Possibly the How did Carl get bit episode.

    The How did Morgan get Ezekiel out episode.

    The How did Carol end up down there episode.

    The How did Eugene and Gabriel make it there episode - possibly combined with how did (we assume) they get the Dr. to Hilltop episode.

    The Daryl, Tara, Rosita episode.

    The Who the fuck cares about Oceanside episode - likely combined with Enid killed an elderly person but it's probably going to be fine and who remembers who the fuck Oceanside is in the first place episode.

    The "Hey, does anybody remember Rick saw a helicopter 3 years into the Zombie Apocalypse episode and never mentioned it to anyone" episode.  That could be important.

    There's 8 flashback episodes.  And maybe they work in the end of the war in the last 15 minutes of the next half-season.
