    So Rick is going to not finish off the saviors because he wants them to come and Jack Alexandria? Those people sat and watched as neegan beats people around them to death for fun.

    That is it, Carol and Daryl need to hook up and take charge.

    Has anyone mentioned Rick taking random Polaroid pictures for no apparent reason? :calli:

    Really Rick? You couldn't give Shane another chance but the lady who stabbed you in the back for neegan gets another chance? Has her group ever been helpful or trustworthy? Did coral get the brain this season, is that it? Now you will need Carol and Daryl to save your dumb ass again. Maybe you should be a dad more because coral seems to be a bullet magnet. You might want to teach him how not to get shot, or at least put him out of his misery considering you did screw up so he had to kill his own mother after cutting shane's baby out of her with Maggie. Perhaps it is a mercy killing at this point.

    I never saw "Lucas" - TV show or movie? Regardless, raping kids doesn't get the "creative juices" flowing on the set! :nono:
    Didn't they just do coke for inspiration back around that time?

    well I answered my own question as to why Rick was taking those pictures. BTW do you think he was any nekkid pictures of Rosita? :wub:
    OH SHIT! Now Rick is naked! :huh: Hope he doesn't waste film on himself. :jayzus:

    Its Carl! He's not a reef at sea!

    But yes, Ricks plan getting the scavengers involved seems like a nice way to cause unnecesary complications and drag the season out longer.

    No resolution on where the helicopter came from a few episodes back? Something big/bigger must be brewing.

    They are planning a crossover between fear and TWD. That helicopter might be the fear people flying in considering they were mucking around with military helicopters before they were kicked off the ranch by omfg stupid. There are stupid that makes Rick and the scavengers seem like a good idea. I am now rooting for the zombies to cleanse the gene pool of that cast. Maybe they will end both series by flying Madison and her dumb fucking kids and they guy who destroyed the ranch in and kill them and everyone in the walking dead so we have a fitting end and can go on before neegan gets any more weak sauce and Rick has to be saved by Carol and Daryl again.

    I dropped the show right before the conclusion of the Governor story.

    Just couldn't take the overwhelming stupidity anymore.

    Rick should have put a bullet in the Governor right in that meeting they had.

    And no other character was worth a damn to make me want to watch the show.

    Same with the comics. It was just repeat after repeat. Just different people playing the same roles.

    Ok, the writers of this show need some consistency. If the survivors could kill off all the zombies with a superior position and bullets, why didn't they get everyone to high ground and make a controlled breach while blocking off the bottom floor? Supposedly the walkers were supposed to be so many they could not do that. You don't need to be a fucking genius to figure out you could kill them off slowly and safely with the available scaffolding and blocking off the ways up. There had to be some reason they didn't do that aside from we were waiting for Daryl to drive a garbage truck in and make a hole.

    What was this master plan? Because it sure as hell seems that it was almost for sure neegan could get out and fuck their shit up. Which means Daryl was right all along that they needed to somehow kill off the trapped saviors because they would eventually escape.

    And Dwight has got to be the dumbest fuck ever. Eugene knows you are the rat, you need to kill him. Push him off the roof when Daryl opens up the hole. Confusion and Eugene died. You can even shoot him considering no one knows what you are doing and where you are. Neegan is just going to kill your traitorous ass. Fuck, shoot Eugene, grab some food and water, and sabotage the saviors so the walkers kill them and find a place to chill quietly until the heard dissipates. Then you go to Rick, him you fixed his problem but could not save anyone, and everyone lives happily ever after until Rick puts them in danger again.

    This just does not make any fucking sense.

    No, no no... I cannot even. None of this makes any sense. If there were enough saviors left to make assaults on the kingdom, hilltop, and Alexandria how the hell were they trapped and needed Eugene to help them escape? I think I am done with this.

    That is one of the things that makes no sense. Given Rick could not have been that far behind, and they had to leave enough people behind to have repelled Rick coming back with the junkyard group, how did they mount three simultaneous attacks against the kingdom, hilltop, and Alexandria? Not to mention they could not have known Alexandria lost all of its warriors, or had time to search through the bodies to be sure the king was not killed there. If that many people were outside of where neegan was then then wannabe daryl neegan's second in command would have told Rick about that huge force when he was giving away the guards positions and other outposts.

    Dwight could not have been unaware of that many people unless he was planning on leading Rick and company into a trap, and if he was neegan certainly would not have allowed that many of his people to die in the attack. It just makes absolutely no sense they could mount such an offensive that soon after being hit that hard unless Dwight was entirely wrong about the numbers neegan had. That number of people could have easily shot their way out of captivity or rescued those held captive by the walkers around neegan's compound.

    Again,is Daryl fucking stupid? You hang around and ensure no one gets loose by sniping anyone who tries to exit. You also go in after the walkers clear and find neegan. You make sure he is fucking dead. There is just so much wrong with what happened I could not get around it. This series has done some stupid shit before. I have been thinking that no one would do a lot of things Rick and company do since season one, but I watched it because I never agree with what people do in zombie movies. This had some good holy shit moments to see up until after terminus. It has not impressed me since they got to Alexandria and even the hospital and their trip to Alexandria was a little sucks.

    I liked watching Carol nuke terminus, but that was a huge cop out after a lot of build up. I did like Rambo Carol, but it made no sense when she was caught off guard by the black kid from the hospital, and when she got hit by the car in that episode. What, did Rambo Carol suddenly forget how to check behind the locked door or to look both ways before crossing the street for the only running car for a hundred miles which would have been clearly audible. Bad writing has plagued every fall and this is no exception. No first half season has made much sense, and the writing always sucks, but I do not think I can watch this shit anymore after that crap fest. The saviors should have been crippled by losses at this point considering how many were killed before neegan killed Glen and Abraham. Daryl blew up their entire biker squad and they massacred the entire outpost staff plus. Where the hell did all those people come from that Dwight knew nothing about? If Eugene saved them they must have come from within the surrounded building, and if there were that many people there why was Eugene sweating getting out?

    None of it makes any sense. Screw you walking dead.

    Does anyone even care about this show?

    Tonight's episode was more of the same dreck.

    If there was any justice, this should be the final season. Like all once-great shows, the network milks the shit out of it until it's just not good any more.

    Spoiler - the hour and a half episode is really only the same time as an hour long episode, but they jammed thirty more minutes of commercials into it.

    I hope I did not ruin it for anyone.

    Seriously though this episode really should just have been a montage of two songs. The first one being a remake of Jim Croce's You don't mess around with slim only replace slim with Carol, and Whitney Houston singing I believe the children are our future. Yes I watched it because I have been waiting for bullet magnet, I mean coral to die. It took a fucking hour and a half if you don't consider the reality that the whole first half of the season was a sort of flashback of his death.

    Now all Rick needs to do is to create a gun that allows him to travel in between different dimensions so he can get a new wussy McOne'eye, or a morty.

    I'm still standing by my idea: the whole thing was a dream, and Rick is still in the hospital and when he wakes up none of this zombie shit actually happened.
    But wait! Somebody is shuffling down the hospital hallway - it gets closer - it's a ZOMBIE! And we fade to black......

    I am thinking it is all the fantasy Daryl has in his head to distract him from when his brother merle is sexually abusing him.

    Really, this was marketed as 1,5 hours? It's 56 minutes.

    Anyway. While not so bad (Carl's long goodbye had to be expected; I was wondering if they'd drag it out over the remaining episodes), this certainly goes in circles. As a seasoned TWD viewer you just know those premonitions/visions won't go anywhere and will just be left dangling while the group finds another shelter and another bad guy.

    This needs an infusion of asskicking. And I don't mean the warlike action alternating with boring talk, talk, talk and tears. I mean something to shake things up because it's pretty obvious they won't end it. Like the realization that Negan had the right idea all along and our heroes take his place. Now that would be a season ender - some poor schmucks kneeling where Abe and Glenn were kneeling, cut to the trailer door, out comes Rick with Lucille and a little grin on his face... fade to black.

    The only real hope I have for an actual endgame is when the actors get tired of TWD. However, why should they. None of them are such superstars that more than TV movies are in their future. Take the cash, do some indie movie in between, thankyouverymuch.

    There is something strange going on with TWD actors. It is shot in GA so it is not SAG. However they are some strange contracts which interferes with how they go to conventions and do fan events. I know this because I have a friend who works for dragoncon staff and is in the know about these things. I cannot remember all the details, but they were not allowed to attend dragoncon. That may be because it is a fan run convention where Comic-Con may have better dealings with the shows creators and owners.

    It is really strange because there was a legitimate sanctioned walking dead presence at a tiny Florida convention where I met Rick and Abraham. They had a bunch of other crew and extras around. For some reason I did not fully understand they were not allowed to do dragoncon but they were in negotiations. It may have something to do with the setup because there was a lot of production to the pictures and autographs I got, and it cost a bit. It might be the actors want more money for fan interaction.

    I think when this series ends they will be wishing they had any fans period. They are good actors and I hope it propels them to greater things for most it will be the steadiest gig they ever had.

    Since they'll never end it, here's my fanfic ending....

    *Rick and Daryl creep up on a house, Diacanu calmly walks out the front door with hands raised*

    Diacanu- Hey, Rick, Daryl, wanna see my magic trick? :diacanu:

    (Cut to them in Diacanu's back yard)
    *Diacanu sets up 4 things that look exactly like the transporter pattern enhancers from ST:TNG*

    *Diacanu lures some walkers into the perimeter of the enhancers*

    Diacanu- *Making kissy noises like you call a cat with* Come on, babies! Come on, babies!

    *Diacanu turns on the beams of the enhancers, and the walkers fall dead like puppets with the strings cut*

    (Rick and Daryl have watched this the entire time with weirded out confusion, until the moment of the walker deaths, then it switches instantly to recognition, and shocked awe)

    Diacanu- Yep, plague over. You're welcome. :diacanu:
