Was on vacation this past week and missed the live airing, which is a real rarity for me. Caught up last night though and it was about what I expected. I figured there would be a few episodes like this, letting things settle before they start building again. I don't want them to rush into the comic storylines too soon, we've only just gotten over the Governor and Terminus at this point.

That scene with Carol and the kid was off the hook...she just broke that poor kid. Dark stuff indeed. I love where her head is at though.

The scene with Rick reaching for the gun was about more than just jealousy I think. I think that was a protective instinct which will play out more and more over the coming weeks. It seems clear to me her husband is very controlling if not abusive. The way he cut her off at the party when getting the drinks, the possessive arm around her after she says hi to Rick, not to mention the way he referred to her last week as "my wife" and not by name. This is not a good guy. (Sucks that he is the only doctor though)

The W brand was definitely interesting. Curious to see where they go there. The Buttons-feast was some pretty quality splatter too. I'm glad they find ways to sneak that kind of brutality into episodes like this. Poor Daryl can't catch a break. He sure loves him some spaghetti though!

The scenes with him and the gay guys were great...sort of typifies what Deanna was talking about at the party, people from different walks of life coming together to form a community. Nice to see him sort of soften up at the end there. Dude needs his chopper back.

I had totally forgotten about Gabriel. I have to wonder about him too. And it's hard to blame Sasha for being disgusted with everything because it really is a bizarre kind of dreamworld those people are living in. Freaking pasta makers?!? Oy vey. Get up on that tower, people!

I was hoping we would get more on that girl and her excursions outside the wall but maybe next week. I think that's who took Rick's gun.

Meh...just bought the house for $160 off cl.  Guess I'll have to get this now too.   :)

From where?

I need one too...time to get crackin'.

Our TRU finally put some single carded Rebels figures out again and I was able to snag 4 more AT-DP Drivers and 2 more TIE Pilots.  ;D

I think I'm good with this wave aside from any other Jedi Temple Guards I might happen to stumble across.

Curious when/if we will ever see that Rebels Obi-Wan teased a few months back on that poster.

I agree another new figure would have been preferable. I'm tempted to try hunting these down at Walmart instead.

Sabine has a variant

That is some great scoop! This is gonna be a tough one to track down unfortunately. At least with the Ezra variant there were plenty of those TRU multipacks laying around to pick through. I haven't even seen any of the new 2-packs lately outside of that one week they showed up at Target.

I swore to buy every JTG I saw on the pegs, and so far I'm up to 7. I'm army building the hell out of these guys.

I wanted to do the same with the AT-DP Drivers but that guy is impossible to find around here.  :(

There are just too many companies running separate lines for this franchise. It would be next to impossible for someone wanting to jump on board at this point to catch up. But there is definitely some cool stuff out there.

Found the rest of the BTILC figures I needed (Rain, Lightning, and Thunder) at Target tonight. They did a great job with this line.

Yeah, it's a better value with the pack-in figure to be sure. I went ahead and dumped my loose one on eBay in favor of the Target exclusive, if/when that ever shows up.

I grabbed a mintier carded Gree tonight, to replace the busted up one I got previously. Not sure I want to open the spare since I have the original CW figure laying around loose already. Maybe good custom fodder though.

So Rayna evolved into the chick from "Nightbreed"?

Funny I don't recall any Inhumans with thorns growing out of them. And the only one who could teleport was Lockjaw. And they all had eyes.

So WTF?

I liked seeing Fred "Hunter" Dryer (where was DeeDee?) back on TV for five more minutes. And the play against Hydra was pretty enjoyable, if a bit silly. Not liking the subterfuge with Fury's toolbox though. Haven't we had enough "mole on the team" BS to put up with already? It's played out.

I also liked Fitz giving fanboys the world over a stiffy when he told Skye her heartbeat was "inhuman" - so coy, you writers!

I don't feel like I really missed this show all that much after all. At least we get SIF next week.

Picked up 3 more Jedi Temple Guards at Target over lunch. I may have a problem... :P

Finally found some of the new BTILC figures at TRU this afternoon...picked up Jack, Gracie and LoPan. No sign of the other guys. Interestingly, they each rang up at $6.99. Pretty great deal there IMO, hope I can find the rest at that price too.

Got Otachi yesterday, incredibly underwhelming. For $70 this thing should be a LOT bigger. First figure I've been disappointed with in this line.  :(

I saw the 2 new building sets at Walmart this past week, which are basically the Prison Gate and Tower set split into 2 with some exclsuive figures thrown in just to piss you off.  ::)

I also saw they re-designed the blind bags. How about a new wave instead?
