With 2 episodes left this season, you gotta think that this would be an exciting episode that really moves the story along. We'll see soon enough....

Re: The Walking Dead (S7E14) -- "The Other Side" -- 3/19/17

has the POTENTIAL to be an interesting couple of episodes since apparently this season

Spoiler:
doesn't end in a cliffhanger


and since Negan

Spoiler:
is alive in the comics, and JDM has signed on for more than one season


I wonder how it's all going to play out.

Sort of.

Hmm...other than the conversation between Maggie and Daryl, a whole lot of nothing going on. Hopefully Sasha
Spoiler:
and her wide eyed "acting" are history (since she's was created for the show, no big loss) since she's gone ahead with her nonsensical one woman attack on Negan.
She's been unbearable as a character for some time now

Yep, it was a boring episode.

Based on the previews it seems next week is more of the same.

Still taking forever to get to where they need to go.

They need to change the name of the show to "Stupid People Doing Stupid Things".
Darryl's stupidity caused Glenn's death (and it appears to bother him) - so let's double-down on the stupidity and try to kill a Saviour so you can be responsible for another of the gangs death in retaliation.

There's going to be a coordinated attack on the Saviours, so what point is there for Rosita/Sasha to go after Negan so early? You're exponentially increasing the odds of dying yourself (even if you do kill Negan), and you're certainly going to be unleashing retaliation and probably killing off the chance of a future attack. Even if we chalk it up to blood-thirsty personal revenge, why in the holy fuck would Jesus or anyone else allow them to leave?

sigh.. I swear if this shows was ANYTHING other than zombies I would of stopped watching a few season back. I'm disgusted with myself... lol

I am so invested in this show that there is no way I will be able to stop watching til the end. As boring as it is I still watch every week with so much hope. They really need to get rid of Scott Gimple. He is to blame in my book.

The episode was pretty much what I expected. I'm sure Sasha is not dead. She will appear as a hostage and maybe be killed later. Hopefully that Hilltop leader will be on his way out soon and Maggie can take over.

I was really annoyed at AMC for pushing in Into the Badlands between TWD and Talking Dead. I don't care about that show. I didn't even bother watching Talking Dead because it was on so late and that's not a show I'm going to record and watch later.

Re: The Walking Dead (S7E14) -- "The Other Side" -- 3/19/17

I think the problem is they've reached a point where 1) everyone still alive at this point should be skilled zombie killers/avoiders, and 2) the population should be dwindled to the point where anyone still alive can stake out an area 100s of miles from other survivors and never have to see another large organized group. But neither of these things lends itself to tv drama, so they continue to let their characters make stupid decisions concerning both zombies and human villains.

I lol'd during that scene. So many things wrong. Rifle out the window, facing the sun with the scope open. Just ridiculous, but this is TWD, and I'm still watching it, like a sucker.

It was also stupid, when in the scene with Maggie and Darryl in the cellar, Maggie's face was lit up like a christmas tree against the dark background.

Even the hardcore defenders at my work kinda shrugged this morning regarding last night's episode. There is just no buzz on this show anymore compared to earlier seasons.

Was cringing most of the episode. Writers of this show pretty much only know how to further plot via character idiocy. But this was stupid even by TWD standards. Standing in front of the window, gun completely out, not simply camping up there another day waiting for a clean shot - c'mon this is just beyond idiocy. Taking on an army obviously isn't going to work and now you've made it significantly more difficult for the others to carry out their plans as Negan's guard will be way up.

Re: The Walking Dead (S7E14) -- "The Other Side" -- 3/19/17

This is a show that would benefit a great deal from AMC giving it an announced end date, like ABC did with Lost. At least then the writers could map out the plotting and characterization. This being AMC's big hit, it will get run into the ground rehashing the same tired zombie antics.

I watched this episode in about 15 minutes by fastforwarding through pointless characters and drawn-out scenes. It's the only way I watch The Walking Dead these days.

Maybe not the worst episode, but certainly the most boring.

So Maggie isn't even showing yet? How many months is she supposed to be? It's been at least over a year of our time since she got pregnant, right?

Looks to me like we've got a future Sasha episode coming. No way they let us off with her just disappearing into the haze of battle. So stand by for that piece of magnificence.

I guess all of the speculation that Eugene was playing along with Negan and wasn't really turning to the dark side went right out the window last night. He may not be 100% Team Negan, but he's definitely abandoned team Lets Do Something Stupid And Get Someone Killed (aka Team Rick)

Not only is he at the Cool Kids table, he is given status towards the head of the table, of course he is all in and he saw what happens to elite positions that are not loyal, he is making sure not to make those mistakes.

I noticed the same thing. Her stomach was as flat as a board - basically the actresses in-shape body. Maggie has to be about 4 months pregnant at this point, so she should have a noticeable bump or something.

Seems like Eugene might have a Stockholm Syndrome thing going on.

Watching his solo episode, he was open to assassinating Negan with the wives, but backed out when he saw Doctor Carson burned alive. I also think he had a feeling Dwight set the doctor up and got paranoid about the plot to poison Negan, so he's not going to do anything to rock the boat or draw attention to himself. I'm also not 100% sure that the wives weren't testing Eugene for Negan when they wanted him to manufacture poison.

They don't treat it enough like their big hit. They need the writing teams from superior television shows like 'Breaking Bad.' The show needs a bigger budget and they need to be willing to go darker. I would have had Daryl be the final victim killed by Negan after Abraham and Glenn, and if the show didn't have the Governor take Rick's hand, Negan could have.

That said, I expected an actual 'Negan' episode by now. One that has him drop his cartoonish, grinning persona and show us how everything he does is meant for others to underestimate/overestimate him, but ultimately keep everyone too afraid.
