Same here. I skipped the last half hour last week but will probably just watch this so I won't be confused by tomorrow's Internet rage boner. Other than someone flipping off a little kid and Rick in full dictator mode, did I miss anything at all?

Watching, but not that hopeful.

That was fun. I was glad they didn't draw out the scene with Negan and the bat and Rick and Carl--I didn't need to see a repeat of the season opener.

Not bad. Still a lot of bad writing, but at least there was some things that were unexpected. The fight was kind of bland, but after the season we had to sit through it seemed amazing. Low expectations can really do wonders. They MUST fire Gimple.

Negan has some incredible plot armor. He's the high value target in this conflict and is able to avoid getting bitten by Sashawalker, stands out in the open when bullets are flying, and manages to not get eaten by a fucking tiger... twice.

Not terribly surprised that Jadis and the junkyard fuckwits were turncoats. They were too weird and creepy to be counted on.

Be nice if, when this is all over, Maggie gets to brain Negan with Lucille, but I'm not holding my breath.

This to me still felt like nothing happened.

Okay, we were going to lose someone and that someone wasn't really a surprise.

Rick gives the same fucking speech.

Blah.

You guys should be happy that they finally showing them riding bicycles.

It was pretty cool that the trash people rode in on garbage trucks.

How does a tiger know which people to attack?

I thought there was a chance that SMG might stay on, but I guess not.

I suppose we'll see Heath back next season if Fox doesn't pick up 24: Legacy, or if they continue it without him.

I still enjoy this show, but had to laugh when Dwight says, I'll slow them down...

Me: It's impossible to make this season any slower!

This.

Also, what's the point of Jadis asking Michonne if she minds if she bangs Rick afterwards if they were just planning to screw the Alexandrians over the whole time??

Tiger attacks not only the right side but pretty much the exact moment and person to prevent Carl from finally being killed. Beyond deus ex machina. How many times are they going to tease us with Carl's death.

Liked the literal dead red shirt in the street.

Yea, because that is what was messed up, not the fact that no one noticed the big ass Tiger running through the courtyard until he was already on top of the guy!

I mean, shouldn't that go without saying. I'd say tiger jump should replace jump the shark but this show jumped the shark years ago.

For an otherwise terrible season, that was a pretty good finale.

The tiger attack was pretty awesome.

I'm curious how Sasha died in the coffin. Did she really suffocate or did she choose to go out and Eugene gave her something that killed her because she was making a sacrifice?

Was not surprised that the trash people turned on Rick and company.

Presumably took the pill Eugene gave her last episode.

Ok, I must have missed that. I guess I was caught up with her listening to the MP3 player and her visions with Abraham.

It was OK. Probably the best episode of the season after the premiere, but yeah.

So next season it's going to be a lot of battles I guess. And the season finale when they take care of Negan.

She took the pill then took a sip of water. It was the whole reason she asked for a bottle of water.
