Now I can buy every Hero Masher Admiral Ackbar they have in stock.

I like how they made Maul with the spider legs...for 3 3/4? NO. For some silly line that will be gone in a couple of years, he's in the second wave!

It's all a fake out and like 6 people die in the February episode.

Abe, Sasha are gunned down and Daryl runs off in the woods, wounded again. Gabriel, Jessie and her kids are ripped apart.
That's all before the opening credits. LOL.

After that, the Wolf and the doctor die, then Carol wakes up and slits Morgan's throat. Then she demands Tara, Rosita and Eugene toss his body to the hungry walkers to cover up her actions.

Zombie Deanna defies her brainless state and leads the herd away to a new zombie community.

Rick remembers his promise to Deanna about looking after her son, only to discover his severed head being used for hacky sack by some walkers.

By the end of the episode Rick and Michonne are doing the nasty.  Not gutting more zombies, the other nasty.

Got nothing for ya. Underwhelming entirely.

Tara nor Rosita were willing to take the shot? Knowing what kind of people the Wolves are? In fact those two and Eugene almost might as well not have been in the episode.

Glenn got to shame Enid and then look over a wall. Wow.

The crib fake out...boooo! (It may have been the only effective bit in the episode actually...even if it was ridiculous that Deanna later summons enough strength to go out fighting.)

"Mom? Mom?"
She's gonna have to stop and break his neck, I guess.

I was wrong, I thought the first half of the season would cover a mere two days, now it's more than half the season.

I even hated the 2 minute preview for the mid-season premiere. Stopping. Getting out of the truck....really? REALLY?

Admiral was rocking those 70's sideburns.  8)

Kind of a small crew for Sato's ship...3 guys and Ezra?

Imperial Engineers (?) with the gunner helmet...another EU thing.
Rex not being able to see a thing in the stormtrooper helmet, yet he wore clone trooper helmets.  :P

Chopper still kicking butt...killing hundreds.  :D

Poe, Rey, Finn, So, La, Ti, Doe!

Will William Hurt go all Red Hulk on us?

Will Nicholas Cage as Ghost Rider show up in the end credits zinger?

Predictions for mid-season "finale"

- Daryl, Sasha and Abraham will not arrive in time and will not be in the episode at all, thus leaving us hanging.

- Jessie is shot and killed by her son Ron, the Carl feud was  red herring.

- Carol will attempt to save Jessie's youngest son, only to fail as he gets bit and she has to put him down.

- Father Gabriel will hide in some building and lock the door behind him...just like he did before.

- Glenn and Enid will arrive in a hastily and improbably constructed hot air balloon, with only enough room to save our core heroes, everyone else dies or is presumed so (leaving it open for Morgan to return again), next year they are back on the road!

- Enid doesn't go with the group because the balloon is too heavy and to save everyone, she jumps out shouting "YOLO!" or "JSS" or something. Then she disappears from view.

- The big shocker is that as they leave they look down  from the balloon and several walkers have formed letters...the words read "You can't escape Rick", without a comma, leading some to wonder if Rick isn't to blame for something. Also, are the walkers controlled by a hive mind?  Or is this all Rick's dream?

Given what we're seeing, what would Hasbro & retailers want to charge for something like the ARC-170 or the upgraded X-Wings today?  $100?  The pricing on this vehicle line is looking much more like a cash grab, especially considering the way the designs have been dumbed down.

Some years back, we already saw the ARC-170 jump to some $65 to $70 for that deluxe vehicle line that lasted 2 waves (the second was the CLone Wars Y-Wing). And in 2005, it was $29.99.

The Vintage boxed Gunship was $119.99, the 3 3/4" scale gunship began retail existence during AOTC (2002) at $40, then down to $30...then sky's the limit! Though, the vintage boxed one included turrets and a few figures.

God's Will. Alexandria is a modern Gomorrah.

It was safe before, then Rick brought SIN in.   :o

He didn't have FAITH, he hid weapons. He coveted a neighbour's wife. Carol stole chocolate.

He tore down Gabriel's flyers.

No one was noticing the tower crumbling.

Signs this takes place in an alternate universe:
gasoline doesn't go bad
US Army uses Russian-style RPG's
dumpsters have enough space to crawl under.

Also, the dead come back and eat the living.  :P

Who is gonna perish next week?
My monkey is on Deanna. (BAD MONKEY)
Eugene? In some noble sacrifice?

Blood Sisters gave us a some small revelations about Sabine's past.

Not bad, kinda "meh".  Chopper's being owning it lately. Also, a GONK droid.

20% off Force Awakens stuff at Toys R Us.

Yeah, means regular figures are $7.19. What a bargain.  :(
Still worth a look for other stuff. Two packs are $12 with that discount.

What they need is a catapult to deal with herds. Easy to find ammo for a catapult.

Also, a big boulder ala Indiana Jones, or a giant cheese wheel like Z Nation.

Yeah, some obligatory it's a cartoon/small galaxy moments.

Agent Kallus has nothing better to do that run a small blockade? Isn't that job for a fleet officer? See, that was a spot to use another OT Imperial Officer.

Not annoyed by no mention of Ackbar, because that story stank of EU's own "it's a small galaxy" moment.

Quarrie doesn't fly, how'd he get to that planet?  ???
Or did he mean, doesn't fly fly, like a test pilot/fighter pilot?

Hondo vs. Vizago...Hondo has personality, Vizago not so much...he hasn't been characterized beyond "black market guy".
