. I'm already tired of the junkyard crew...what's it been a few years since the illness? Why are they talking like a combination of Yoda and the Borg already?
. It was nice to get Rick and Michonne focus for a bit, but my two complaints would be that the whole gun mission wound up ending like a castle in Mario "the princess is in another castle" and that they make the walkers look entirely non-threatening when they wipe out an army full of walkers with the only threat for death being Rick's stupidity (dude should know better than to watch deer ever since Carl got shot that way).
. I'm REALLY glad we're moving on the plot finally though. The visit to the all woman camp with ammo is long overdue, the Kingdom hitting breaking point is long overdue and Carol finally wondering what's actually happening to her loved ones was overdue the day she ran away for no good reason. That all of this is finally happening should signal the end of the filler and we'll be getting development finally!
. And how nice was it not to have a random Negan scene forced down our throats for a change. We get it, he's a bad guy and people are scared of him. Now let us watch the people we like for a while and make his threat more ominous instead of having him kill random nobodies every episode.
. I assume the last pieces to the puzzle will be the women's camp joining up and two-face jumping switching sides to save his girl. My guess is they milk that build up through the finale and next season will be the war we expected to get this second half.
