That was the plan originally, but when they were stealing the explosives and saw the walkers coming, the plan changed. Rick said something about putting the cars back to keep the walkers from wandering off of the off ramp. He has other plans for them. Though it didn't look like an off ramp to me. It just looked like the other direction of traffic lanes.

O.k., this is getting confusing.

I remember hearing Jesus saying he overheard some of Negans guys saying that the cable had something to do with walkers?

Ricks plans for the walker herd didn't go far since he plowed them all down.

I mean, it's TWD. Nonsensical drama trumps everything else.

Me too. That's why, if my didn't care to not watch the show any longer, I wouldn't mind. Not one bit.

I assume the plan for the wire was to block the walkers from moving forward, they'd all bunch up there, then someone detonates the explosive and kills the herd?

I dunno. The two cars and the wire was cool. So glad those junker cars started so easily!

Overall I liked the episode, it was a good companion for the end of mid-season. Hopefully this part of the season stays like this.

What the heck was with Rick looking like he got overrun by walkers only to pop up in a box behind Michonne? Are they adding magic tricks to the show now? And what was it the walkers were eating, a deer? The same deer that took off just moments before Rick fell off the ferris wheel?

Why should I be surprised?

And what was up with the shooting zombie? How was it supposedly doing that?

Talking Dead said he was hung up on some (convenient) re-bar and one of them pulled the trigger.

My biggest issue is how no Saviors ever heard/saw/found that location before the love birds did. Even with all the noise they made, you'd think somebody would have been like, "Eh? Let's check out over there where all the noise is coming from..."

The convenient writing/drama really is the reason I've gotten indifferent to the show. I'm no longer at all excited to watch it off the DVR. In fact I almost dread it. It's become so obnoxiously annoying. Like a few other shows we watch, if the wife didn't care, it'd be erased from our scheduled recordings list.

I wouldn't call myself indifferent to it. I enjoyed the Eugene episode, but last night's romcom was annoying and boring. And... I'll say it... Eugene and Tara are both too fat for the zombie apocalypse...

Oh yeah, one more thing, what was with the two guys and the truck that Mich and Rick found? A minute later they (Mich and Rick) were in the truck driving down the road. Did they kill the two guys?

Time for this show to end. Tonight's episode was just another shovel of shit on the pile. If they kill the Saviors next episode and wrap it up neatly, then I will probably consider that the series finale.

Another ambush walker. I just imagine one on his tiptoes like the old Looney Tunes toons.

I'm pretty sure I saw something that Negan signed on for the next season already, didn't he?

I caught up on the last 3 episodes last night, and it wasn't terrible. The one (3 episodes ago) with Morgan etc was really good I thought. I kind of feel like this is similar to the "Farm" season, where they're taking a really long time to get to the point with the season. Yeah, they're connecting the settlements etc.. but it just feels so long and drawn out.

Imagine nothing will be resolved next episode, and will at least go into a few episodes next season.

My problem with the show, as I've mentioned before, is there is zero danger/drama from the zombies. Other than the contrived "SURPRISE ZOMBIE!" that pops out every episode or two, they are zero danger to anyone. The show successfully showed us our cast progressing as killers and improving their skills, to the point where a pregnant lady can easily take down two zombies without breaking a sweat. Yes, this shows our cast is badass.. but also takes away one of the big reasons people watch these kinds of shows.. for the danger/drama. I get it, The Walking Dead are the people not the zombies.. blah blah, but realistically how many ways can you keep reinventing the danger their facing from people? Ohhh this guy is REALLY BAD, this guy HAS A BAT! I don't know. I think Negan and the Saviors are interesting, I love Trevor (from GTA) too. It just doesn't feel fresh or new, which is understandable considering how many seasons in we are. I just think because they made the zombies so.. static.. there is no way to return to the suspense of the first couple of seasons. Zombies don't level up, there isn't a BOSS zombie to face.. just more, deteriorating shambling (and sometimes sneaky as fuck) walkers.

Yeah, it's to the point (a while ago, actually) where it's boringly repetitive. The walkers are about as big of a nuisance as mosquitoes and the crazy, evil, insane villain of the year plot always seems to feel kinda different but also not different at all.

I guess that's the problem with all of these villain reliant shows. The Flash, once really awesome, has gotten super repetitive, not to mention the forcely written drama, which also often plagues TWD.

I mean, at least with the superhero type shows, the villains can very much be different from one another because powers, but with TWD, no matter who you put in the villain role, it's always going to just be a regular ole human. The problem with any type of villain based show is their motivations. That part seems to be nonsense no matter the show, and it gets oldest the quickest.

TWD has shown flashes of being something less repetitive - the theme of the main characters' becoming more badass and taking out the Saviors' outpost, the theme of rebuilding some kind of a stable society and adaptation to the new world to name a couple. But none of these things are really fleshed out as genuine plot elements, more just a plot devices.

Instead there has been way too much "major bad person appears, threatens and kills some minor major character(s), drama drama drama then the major major characters kill bad person and drama." Rinse and repeat. I would love to see more of the how they survive, how they adapt, all the struggle and work that would go into it. Then it would mean more when it's threatened.

Or... 28 Days Later screaming, running rage zombies appear and everybody dies!!!

Yeah, I don't know how to rectify it either.

Maybe get them on the road again? It's cool with the different settlements, but its all so.. static. They all have their little safe houses/areas and we see them over and over and over again. I'm not sure growing CROPS is good drama/tv. Even with weevils!

Like, maybe make it so a huge super herd or something is approaching and X, Y, and Z happens and they have to leave their settlements. For whatever reason they need to go north, winter will freeze the walkers.. so we get TWD in snow! At least that would provide something new (although done before in other zombie mediums). The only real threat walkers provide now (other than thsuper thstealthy ones) is in large numbers, where someone will invariably trip or run into something that allows them to get devoured.

Like I said before, I think the show is at its weakest when they're in one place.. the Farm, the Prison, etc. Since we have a few places now instead of one its.. better.. but still wearing thin I feel.

Still the biggest missed opportunity for me is on FearTWD. The potential in the how it all started and watching it all unfold was immense, and they just glossed right past it. There was SEASONS worth of material there. Really cool material.

Don't even get me started on that.

From leaving the Army base to getting on the boat.. that could have been a season!

A season on the boat would have been a season! Visiting different islands.. ports.. making trips inland for supplies.. head to Hawaii.. maybe to Asia..

But fuck all lets just go to MEXICO and ditch the boat and run around like idiots.

FUCK!

I'd definitely enjoy seeing a military unit and their families in a zombie apocalypse environment. Although, with their training and skill set, you'd have to imagine you'd need running zombies to keep it interesting. Putting them in TWD would make for a very short series... "We set up a fortress on this island and have begun the process of rebuilding western society. Anyone who approaches aggressively will be eliminated. Once the mainland zombies have rotted away, we will return to start again... the end..."

Yeah, I always thought a fun spin off would be having a (competent) military unit making its way from point A to B. Kind of like they sort of had Abraham etc on their mission in the beginning.. but with actual people who know what they're doing.

With a rolling story, you could believably have different circumstances come up as they cross America.

And really.. where DID all the competent people go? Seems like we've seen National Guard units all messed up.. but not the military proper.. maybe they are all on an island sipping boat drinks
