Glad to see they are still able to do a classic Walking Dead filler episode.

I dozed off a couple times last night, but powered through. It was a very slow episode, but had a couple of enjoyable moments.

I liked Maggie's treatment of Gregory and her general ruthlessness toward the Saviors. Jesus needs to stop being such a hippy faggot.

Did you guys see the casting news on Talking Dead? (I didn’t but I saw it on the Twitters)

Lennie James is leaving the show after this season and switching over to Fear the Walking Dead as the same character in flashback form.

I too saw it on Twitter.

It still wouldn't surprise me to have him come back to TWD as current Morgan. I still won't watch FTWD.

Most of the speculation I saw was that it was going to be Abraham.

I like how Eugene writes like he talks. What was the third column on his poor-man’s #spreadsheet? Something like “things of that I am thusly totally unaware”.

I think it was "Things I am unaware of wholly." Good call, though. I still thoroughly enjoy Eugene, despite his douche turn.

When Eugene talks like an intelligent idiot, it can be entertaining. That’s Eugene. When the Scavengers can’t put together complete sentences, I want to throw stuff at the TV. The zombies eat people. They didn’t eat all the prepositions.

The Scavengers may be the worst collection of characters in TV history. They serve literally zero purpose, and there is no possible way to explain the way they talk. Why have they not all died in a fire yet?

That seemed like kind of an anti-climactic midseason finale, but I guess the final "death" counts as a pretty big deal.

With 5 minutes left I said out loud to my TV, "When was the last time anyone of consequence died on this show? Move it along, AMC." I guess they listened. OK.

I agree though. Seemed like more should have actually happened in that episode.

Some good explosions and stuff, but now we’re going to be stuck with a bottle episode from the sewer to kick off the second half of the season where we get a 44 minute soliloquy of the virtues of staying pure in a topsy-turvy world yada yada yada. That’s going to be painful. If I were showrunner, here’s how I’d write the cold open of S08E09:

Prime Bbcode Spoiler Show Prime Bbcode Spoiler:
Camera slowly pans upward from Carl’s walker bite to his face. His eyes look blank as the virus is finishing its work. Death is imminent. Sweat pours from his brow.

CARL: “Dad. It’s okay. I would rather die doing the right thing than live in a world where I’ve lost faith. I have 38 things I need to tell y....”

A quick flash of steel cuts through the frame. Carl stops talking. After a slight hesitation, the diagonal cut of Michonne’s sword is clear as the top half of Carl’s head slides off the bottom, falling to the ground. Rick looks at Michonne, horrified.

MICHONNE: “Oh come the fuck on. I knew what he was going to say. You know what he was going to say. We all fucking knew what he was going to say. Sack up Nancy. Let’s get some plot movement up in this bitch.”

The string music cues in as the opening credits roll.
