Really enjoyed this one, especially due to all the various conflicts at the Hilltop. I'm sure would want Alden and Earl to let Gamma see her nephew, and the irony isn't lost that Alden was a Savior, but fact is the Whisperers did leave that baby to die. Gamma doesn't just get automatic visitation rights just because she's related. She's proven herself to Aaron, but not Hilltop.
Favorite episode of the season. I loved all the character stuff. Eugene singing Iron Maiden was great.
Negan's Joker smile Whisperer mask is awesome.
You know what's the best part about using that song? It's from 2010, meaning that it was probably one the last few songs released in the Walking Dead world before the outbreak and probably one of the last songs Eugene and Stephanie were listening to before the world fell apart. Pretty significant, given its lyrics and theme. This little bit of extra context makes the use of the song in that moment even better. I really hope this was intentional and not just a coincidence.
I'm not enjoying this show all that much anymore and a few of their decisions these past couple of seasons really turned me away from it, but the last couple of episodes actually had a few great moments in them. The use of that song on this episode was one of them.
