How anyone can complain about the character who spent four seasons training to be an assassin assassinating the biggest bad guy is beyond me. Her sneaking in close, after spending a long scene earlier showing how quietly she can move and avoiding detection, makes way more sense than John single handedly fighting through the lines all the way to Bran to save the day.and 12 others.
It can’t be a coincidence Julie was calling herself Mary July and now we find the one eyed man is named Mr. June. Ms. July seems like a cute nickname you’d give yourself based on “Mr. June”. I wonder if June helped her escape eventually and tried to let her live a normal life; maybe Julie viewed June as her father, which is why she made that phone call when her real dad was on the screen. It’s a bit confusing to me why Julie knows/remembers her real name and doesn’t turn herself in.
I honestly thought it was a great episode independent of the cliffhanger bullshit. I think they should have killed Abraham in the season finale and had Glenn's death come out of nowhere, but I can see how that might be viewed as repetitive in back to back episodes, as Abrahams death would have been shocking to people who don't read the comics.
Speaking of the comics, that scene with Carl's arm was agonizing for me as a reader. Not sure how spoilery an explanation would be but I know other readers had to feel the same.

The Island is a great premise for Black Mirror, but it's a shit movie.
Her is the ultimate example; it's one of the most unsettling movies I've ever seen. No movie has really struck the fear of AI into me like Her did. Sure, killer robots and AI taking over the world is a scary thought. But the idea that AI might simply be better than us in every way, even emotionally, was really upsetting to me. Would that make our grand place in the universe simply the harbinger of the ultimate life-form?
Murderbear said:Hell yes! Love this movie. Probably one of the first that I watched where I really started becoming interested in the process of making films. Alfonso Cuaron is a genius and I love everything he has done so far.A small and unimportant shot that stuck out to me was a moment following Theo in the woods, when we hear the trees blowing and the camera pans up to look at them; when we pan back down Theo has already walked away and we have to catch up with him. It gives you such a sense that you’re just an observer along for the ride witnessing something real.
If the links ever start working I'll pay, but even if it never works out I'll still set my lineups and do the draft.
