They're pretty much following the comic. Just to sum it up, Rick is going to get as many groups together to fight Negan. Sasha and Rosita went rogue because they loved Abraham's orange D so much they done lost their damn minds. By the last episode we will be at All Out War (and it will be great and you will love it! :lol: )

What are your questions Daniel San? The warrior monks here will try their best to answer them.

Just seems like it doesn't follow any kind of logic, like an 80's horror movie.

For example, why rush in to get Neagan when they had a perfectly good sniping spot? Sure, by coincidence Eugene announces they will search the abandoned buildings for walkers (aren’t there walkers everywhere??), but wouldn’t it make sense to leave and come back later? Or just wait for Neagan to show back up to their camp again and take him out then? It really was a perfect spot. Ok, so they left and were able to walk right up to the front/back door and get in pretty easily…Sasha somehow locks Rosita out of a fence....really she thought all of that thru and was carrying a masterlock? I dont know. That entire sequence was too contrived and pointless. Plus why not just wait when the rest of the group is finally on board??

In general, the story arcs and character arcs keep repeating. Every episode the Saviors show up at someones camp unexpectedly, bust some balls to piss people off and Daryl hides in a closet somewhere. The characters keep flip flopping from hero to coward to hero. Morgan and Carol are back, but now Eugene is back in coward mode. I don't know anything about the comic or spoilers, but my guess is Daryl will flop personalities next when this is over (probably after Carol dies).

I am waiting for the war but you know they are just setting this up with a big cliff hanger that will wrap up next season.

But yeah I still watch so I guess they are doing something right :lol:

Didn't they have more than one scoped rifle? They could have set up in a pair in different windows and dropped Negan and another person at the same time....a lot felt wrong with that episode.

Big things coming


That's what Gould said about the final 3 episodes. I didn't dislike last night's show like some others here though I thought there'd be more action. All that said, I believe you're right. Shyt gonna hit the fan.

People act like every episode has to be fast and the furious 11 or something

Part of what makes this show so good is that they are unafraid to take a breath, take a beat, develop some characters, and then kill them. Lol

You can't just off everyone with no stakes

You gotta build character too

You can't just have all action, you need to have pauses as well

Expect more action soon

People always need something to bitch about. Everyone will continue to love and watch like an addict, then complain how terrible it was. Its the human condition

I think the audiences today are too accustomed to fast paced storytelling and have no patience for development. Personally I prefer extended story arcs and spending time with the characters so I develop attachments to them and actually give a damn when something happens.

That being said, they've told about 4 episodes worth of story in 14. It's clear the show is being milked for every dime it's worth now. I'm definitely going back to binge watching this next season. So I can plow through it in days instead of months.

I do too. The problem is that TWD doesn't really have compelling characters.

A little spoiler action for Episode 15. Should be pretty good.

Enough practice from being a Knick fan right? :D
My earliest memory as a Knick fan?

In middle school, being pissed off when they small screened the Knick-Rocket NBA final game for the stupid O.J. chase. Still SMDH.
