The Cell was better than The Well - that is for sure. I just can't get on board with this Ezekiel nonsense.

Great. I think I read somewhere there are comic books too.

Seriously though, spoiler that shit, if you refer to anything in the future. Thanks.

I actually disagree. While Ezekiel is a bit much at least it advanced the plot and wasn't insulting to my intelligence. I learned a lot about what is going on and could piece together, to an extent, where we are going with the Kingdom storyline.

But with Dwight and Daryl, we got nowhere. They hinted at the same little bit of character backstory for 40 minutes, then in the last few minutes, they had Neegan spell it out for you in case you missed it, oh and now we are exactly where we were before. The whole episode could have been handled with about 15 mins worth of scenes throughout a full episode.

Plus, it's obvious that Dwight is going to end up helping Daryl in some way, that's a reveal that they didn't have to hammer home so early on...slow reveal, give your audience a little credit.

And the whole thing with Dwight taking the bike out to chase whoever that guy was, none of that made any sense.

This show...sometimes I think about how good it could be if it stopped pandering to the general population. But that's obviously not the way to make the most money.

I don't want to fucking know anything, which is why I don't want hints about it in here either and it's why i'm not going to a wikipedia to learn what happens. What sense does that make? You COULD find out if you wanted to so no reason I shouldn't hint at it in here.

The guy that got out was simply someone who escaped Neegan and Neegan wanted him back.

anyone still watching?

That scene of Michonne and Rick cutting that herd in half last night was pretty awesome.

I still think the Kingdom is silly as hell, but I guess I get it. That kind of shit would probably happen if this were all real. All those ren fair weirdos.

I didn't have a clue there was a new episode until right before it started yesterday. Haven't watched it. Not really excited for it either

Words cannot describe how terrible this show is these days. Such a shame, so much potential, such great actors.

I don't typically quit dramas. Usually I'm invested until the end, but I don't know if I can continue watching. I wish they would just lean into the terrible writing and present themselves as essentially Z Nation. The fact that they still expect to be taken seriously really makes it hard to watch.

Liked the finale, but Maggie vs Rick may be a bit over the top,

I don't think that's entirely what was implied by that scene, but it certainly was confusing.

I THINK all she is saying is that she wants to kill Negan and doesn't care what Rick intends. Which is fair, and fitting for her character considering what Negan did to Glenn.

But it is framed in this sinister super villain way as if it will literally be Rick Vs Maggie which would be so fucking awful.

The writing and character inconsistencies are so bad. Five mintues before that scene we see Jesus begging Morgan not to kill. Killling isnt the answer.

Cut to him saying they must kill Negan.

Get the fuck outta here Jesus.

They do it so much. So many of the decisions made by characters either make exactly zero sense or completely flip flop from some point that same character made very recently.

It's also stupid as shit that he can take a piece of broken glass and make an expert cut on his throat just deep enough to draw blood but not deep enough to hit anything important.

And I love how both the oceanside and garbage people plots had exactly zero relevance in the eventual outcome of this entire 2.5 year saga with Neegan. I really don't know how they took such a great comic book storyline and beat it to death to the point where I hate watched the last season of it.

I know myself and how I get when I'm many seasons deep into a show. I can drop comedies like nothing if I want to, but I always struggle with dramas. I really wish this would have been the series finale.

Oh, I thought I read an article stating that. I could very well be wrong then. Didn't Kirkman sue the show producers last year as well?

I know there have been many changes and issues lately, but to my knowledge they are still going forward with no set end planned yet.

I personally am predicting they'll go 10 seasons.

This is my understanding as well.

And from what I've heard it's more than Krikman suing. I think there are at least 4 or 5 different suits pending, all of them in some way or another claiming that AMC is milking this thing for every dollar it can and doesn't give a shit about the people involved.

One thing that is clear... fans of the show are turning on it big time. Ratings are plummeting and fan forums are constantly bitching about episodes. It seems like most people still watching are just doing it for the sake of finishing at this point, or straight up just hate-watching it.
