This episode is actually online already and I have to say, as a comic reader, after watching it, they jumped ahead and did something I didn't expect the show to do until later, but it's still a good moment how it's utilized here and sets up the growing divide between some communities.
A very good episode, though. Really liked the small talk and dialogue between characters, though one character didn't feel like as big of a deal as the show made it out to be. I'll leave it at that until after the episode actually airs.
Haven't seen it yet but I certainly hope this new season is better than the last.
Siddiq doesn't like spiders. Can't say that I blame him.
What the hell? This is stupid!! No farms to check and take the items??
I can't tell if that's hyperbole or not. You want the episode to be even longer by having them show every nook and cranny that they see along the way?
And then presumably gripe about the episode being long and drawn out?
I'm going to have nightmares for days.
Sneaky Gregory. At it again.
I'm loving this episode.
Won't do that again though
And there it is. Didn't expect Gregory's assassination attempt to happen as soon as it did compared to when it happens in the comic, as well as the way they slightly remixed it, but it does help set up Maggie and Rick's conflict, not to mention this will no doubt turn some Hilltop residents against Maggie.
I think the point (or one of the points) of the excursion is taking equipment that doesn't require fuel/batteries. Using pre modern day tools in a world that might actually benefit them.
Tons of farmers have non machines, just have to look around. If anyone knows where a Amish have lived they would have all they need there
how many folks live in the respective communities?
how far apart are they from one another?
It’s off to a promising start but I’m still skeptical about TWD without Rick.
Me, too. I don't see anyone else strong enough to take his place.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that happen after Alpha's wall in the comics?
This was a weirdly paced episode. Not much happens until the second half, wherein the grief over Random Dude's death spurs Gregory's final betrayal and Maggie's pull against Rick's leadership. It's all very truncated, hinging on several characters we know nothing about.
Agreed. I didn't like this episode either. I just don't care about that guy who died ans Gregory should've died a long time ago. Also, that part with the kids arriving just in time to witness the hanging seemed a little convenient. And what were they doing there anyway? Wasn't it like midnight or something? I hope this isn't what makes Jesus doubt Maggie.
Well so much for this being a fresh start, overall it felt like more of the same. At this point unless the next episode is much better I think I'm done with this show. They should've gotten outside talent to truly overhaul the series in a new way instead of promoting from within the same people who have overseen the recent decline in quality.
Seems odd for Rick to just stand by and watch Maggie execute Gregory too. I mean Rick won't let her execute Negan, but he's cool with her hanging Gregory? At least when that moment happened in the comics, Rick wasn't around and it got used against her to Rick later on.
