    I'm having a hard time feeling bad for Negan. It's a bit late for that. :(

    Morgan's detachment will definitely be what sets him on the path towards leaving and heading to Fear.

    Again, I'm surprised how soon the show is giving all these details of Negan's backstory that the comic didn't introduce until way down the line from now. Between this and what he told Gabriel, there won't be much to share post time-skip if the show goes that same route.

    Same. This episode is putting me to sleep. And oh joy, it's even extended by 15 minutes.

    This show is pretty predictable. I knew Henry would be there to hear what Morgan did.

    They ALWAYS do this I feel like. The most boring episodes are always the longest ones.

    Hn. I'm liking it, particularly seeing crazed Morgan and Rick losing more and more of himself. But then, the consensus here in particular every week is from most of you folks is that you don't like it, but still watch, so I can't be too surprised.

    But good that Jared's finally out of the picture.

    Interesting how Carol finds the boy in almost the exact same type of place Sophia was left in before she disappeared. Underneath an overhang in a creek. Definitely playing up the “second chance to save a child” theme.

    The problem is that when I've watched a show this long it's hard for me to drop it. :( I am running out of favorite characters though.

    Yeah, that crossed my mind as well. A redemptive moment.

    I mean, I thought the last two episodes were pretty good, but my reasoning is I've made it this far, so I might as well keep sticking with it.

    This.
    And this.

    I'll watch until the end, but I'm so sick of characters' philosophies flip flopping all the time. All Gimple knows is character regression.

    i actually like this episode more than the earlier ones (basically episodes 1 to 9 of this season).

    There are some issues though......

    a)Negan picked up a hitchhiker - could that be gregory ? The thing is when negan went back to his base....there was noone next to him.

    b)One moment morgan and carol were walking together and the next minute morgan was with rick and carol was off her own .... was any scenes cut ?

    c)How did negan get a torch and photograps when he was tied ?

    i am not sure if these scenes were cut from the version i was seeing.

    Yeeeaaahhh... They didn't show how Negan got that stuff. This show has become so incompetent.

    No, I'm guessing there will be an upcoming flashback where they give Jadis' explanation for the helicopter and why she let Negan go.

    Just how are they going to wrap this all up in the next two episodes? Because I'm fearing this war will continue on to next season.

    According to Talking Dead, that overhang in the creek looked so familiar because it was the same exact spot they filmed Sophia in back in season 2.

    Gregory is the type who's afraid of his own shadow. He's useless to Negan at this point. Plus I doubt Gregory is daft enough to be walking around on the road in the middle of the night without protection, but you never know with this show. I was wondering where Gregory went because he escaped with Jared and the other prisoners in that Hilltop "cell" in last weeks episode, but was nowhere to be seen with them in this episode. He wasn't even mentioned by any of the saviors.

    I think it's that savior (Laura) who found out Dwight was a traitor. They haven't wrapped up that plotline yet. Negan already knows about Simon's betrayal so it'll add even more tension between him and Dwight in the next two episodes. Though I don't know why it's taking Laura like three days to make it back to the sanctuary.

    And yeah, I noticed nobody's was in the car with Negan when he came back to the sanctuary. They couldn't find or afford a stand in or anything. Honestly I think it's AMC being cheap and not wanting to pay the actor/actress, which was probably the main reason they kept this character hidden on screen.

    Believe it or not, The Walking Dead showrunner says Rick-Negan war will end in season 8.

    Anyways I'm so over this Rick vs Negan war, which should've concluded in 8a. I knew before Season 8 started that they were going to stretch All Out War thin the whole season. They should've condensed the season from 16 episodes to 8-10 episodes. All that's happened this season could've been summed up in fewer episodes. At this point TWD is just getting me through the wait of FTWD, which is becoming the superior show compared to the last three seasons of the main show.

    That sequence with Jadis and Negan....oh my god that was TERRIBLE. Everything from the "action" to the dialogue and the characterization. Also, i get that Negan didn't want to kill her people but why would he open up to her like that? He actually told the story of Lucille to Jadis....freaking Jadis! Not Dwight, not Simon, not Carl but the garbage lady. Of course one could argue that he did it to save his own skin but i think he genuinely wanted to share that.
