Some passing questions lingering after the finale:

I think they definitely overdid it as far as the sheer # of Saviors and their omnipotent ability to be everywhere at once. For one thing, it makes it seemingly impossible to believe that with all those guys running around they wouldn't have found Alexandria months ago. I also find it hard to believe they wouldn't have run across the Wolves or vice versa. Or more recently Tara and Heath who have been out on their run for awhile now.

Is it really smart to keep glomming all these people together anyway? What happens when there are so many Saviors they cant support themselves anymore? You can only steal so much after all, it's a very finite # of resources available. I would think the Governor's way would work a lot better - only take the strongest and fittest and eliminate anyone that might be a potential source of trouble.

Seems like the more people you collect the more trouble you are asking for. What if someone wanted to leave and live at the Hilltop? Or Alexandria? Would that be allowed?

After never seeing one in the wild, I got super lucky and snagged a Green Helmet Resistance Trooper for $10 off eBay.  ;D

A worthy addition to the shelf...

Agreed, looks amazing...and more positive role models for my daughters.  :)

You guys are killin' it!

Not sure if this merits a separate thread so please feel free to merge. I watched all the deleted scenes last night...surprised there were not more footage in there, I had heard they cut out a lot.

The scene with Finn and the villager would have been good to keep in there since it was so short and does serve to further underscore Finn's abrupt conversion from soldier to sympathizer.

The message from Jakku scene did seem superfluous although it does provide at least a little plausible backstory for how Poe got away.

I liked the X-wings hitting light speed because of Parkman's, er...Snap wexley's one liner "is there any other speed?"  :D

I loved Kylo searching the Falcon, if only for the gratuitous Snowtrooper shots and his demonstration of yet another heretofore unseen power of the Force - psychometry. Interesting how this kid is able to do all these wondrous thing with the Force that no Sith Lord has ever pulled off before, not even Bane or Vader.

Really happy they pulled the snow speeder chase because that whole segment looked like crap I thought. Really bad CGI. Cool to see that this toy actually existed in the film though.

Oh, and still not a single sign of Constable Zuvio anywhere. WTF?!?

Apparently there are some internet photos floating around that claim you can see the outline of a certain characters silhouette shadow on Neegan during the last POV scene.   The speculation is that "clues" were planted in the episode on who the victim was.    I haven't bothered to go look for these photos yet.

I just spent the better part of an hour searching for these pictures and I came up empty, so if anyone finds a good link please share. Kirkman definitely said there were clues on TD, so I am keen to find out what. I think it has to do with how they were lined up and where he ended on just before "it".

I finally snagged a Green Helmet Resistance Trooper off eBay for $10. All caught up again.

Ordered Vader, Maul, Boba Fett and another Grievous this morning when they al popped back up. Now I see there is a Prototype Armor Fett coming too.

Here is my personal ranking of who I would prefer to see die based on how much I like the character/future potential:

1 Sasha
2 Rosita
3 Aaron
4 Eugene
5 Abraham
6 Maggie
7 Carl
8 Michonne
9 Daryl
10 Glenn
11 Rick

The main problem I have with killing Glenn, conceptually, is that it destroys the last vestige of true family in this world. There are no other couples with kids. (their own, anyway) Having Glenn and Maggie and baby would provide a nice counterpoint to the onslaught of everything around them. There is a lot you could do with those 3 as far as writing potential. I still feel like we've only just scratched the surface of Glenn...

The best option of all, IMO, and one I am really sad they did not take, would have been for them to kill Carol. She's been around long enough that it would have the dramatic impact they are looking for, and her character wants to die anyway, and she's more or less worthless now so it would have been a nice alternate route.

Also, the more I think about, the more surprised I am that one of them didn't stand up there at the end there and volunteer for batting practice. Take one for the team as it were. That seems like something one of them would have done, out of some sense of guilt or sacrifice or whatever. Guess they were all too in shock.

Gripping stuff...Jeffrey Dean Morgan was just a brilliant casting choice. what a great introduction.

Cool to see the dudes from The Kingdom. Also like what they have done with Father Gabriel lately. Awesome to see Morgan finally man up and realize hard choices are inevitable.

too much else to process tight now, gonna be a long six months...


Meanwhile, next week FTWD will return with an entire cast I wouldn't mind seeing meet Lucille.

My vote is that it's actually gonna be Morgan. Like Matt said - a different choice than the comics, will throw the comic book fans for a loop and kill off a character that a lot of fans wanted back, but lately with the whole "you don't have to kill" stuff he's been preaching, I think there are quite a few fans out there that wouldn't mind seeing him go - which would make him a semi-safe "sacrifice" by the producers.

They do have a recurring habit of killing off the "moral compasses" on the show, so he's got that going for him...(fingers crossed you are right)

I feel more and more it's gonna be Glenn

The more I think about, the more concerned I am that it's actually going to end up a cliffhanger and we won't know for sure til the fall premier.  :(

Season 3 of Star Wars rebels to be the final season.  The final season will set up Rogue One and will make way for another animated series.

Still just a rumor...for now.  :-[

I figured it would be a short run for this show, but I was hoping for at least 1 more season after the next.

Also not sure how they plan to have this lead up to Rogue One when that hits theatres before the tv season is even half over.  ???

Give us The Ghost before it's too late, Hasbro!

I really hope you are right about that, Matt. I am not looking forward to tonight's episode...

Ps - Tara is with Heath...Aaron & pal are chilling back in Alexandria. At least they will be ok.

I don't have the link handy but that April Fools day SW live action streaming Netflix trailer is off the chain. Quinlan Vos versus Maul...dead female Mandalorians...I would SOwatch that if it was real. The spoof was really well done IMO.

I will have to go back and re-watch but I thought they clearly showed Ahsoka after the shot of Vader...she was going back down into the depths of the Temple or something. Either way, yeah, I am sure she is alive.

Other thing that struck me, granted as a minor quibble, but it seemed highly unlikely to me that there would be any Sith holocrons just lying around in an abandoned temple like that. In the Darth Plagueis novel they make a point to explain how Plagueis had obsessively collected all of the ancient Sith lore, including all of the remaining holocrons not destroyed by Darth Gravid. And Sidious himself was supposedly fascinated by Sith worlds, visiting them repeatedly during his apprenticeship (Dathomir, Korriban, etc). So I don't see how they would have possibly missed this one along the way, given that Malachor's history was well known.

Yeah, I am over-geeking... :D
