Dumbest move ever - handing over two guns to a dude holding a knife.

Biggest plot fail ever - psycho wolf dude who has declared his intention to kill everyone gets two guns in his hands, and then walks out without killing anybody.

I think the story has gotten too conventional.  Now we expect each character's story to wrap up before they bite it (or, more accurately, get bit).  In the first few seasons, it didn't work that way.  It felt like anybody but Rick could die at any time.  Bad decisions had immediate, fatal consequences.  And you could do everything right and still have a house fall on you.  Now that's gone.

I think the writers like the characters/actors too much now.  I remember when Beth died, one of the showrunners went on about how it sucked to kill anybody off because that meant they didn't get to work together any longer.  I understand the core folks are supposed to be very competent at this point, and wouldn't die as easily.  But now they just live on for no good reason despite idiocy.

Looking forward to mid-season when they come up with some stupid reason why the bikers don't gun down the folks from the truck.  "Now go back and tell your people that Negan's coming for them!"  Or maybe it'll be a kidnap and torture thing.

I thought it sounded like the dead were in there, shuffling around.

Funny - seems like Ward is generating almost Joeffrey-like hatred from some of you guys.   ;D

I actually like him as the foil.  I'll be sad to see him eventually buy it.  Though I think they still have something in store with his relationship with Daisy.

SHIELD sure did a heck of a job this week tying up every single loose end into one cohesive plot.  I was thinking "Oh, the alien planet thing - that's a totally different plot from The Inhumans."  "Oh the Ward revenge thing - that's not connected at all to The Inhumans."

But... NOPE!  Everything is The Inhumans.

I can't imagine they planned all this from the beginning.  I'm talking Cap: First Avenger beginning.  Because that'd just be ridiculous.

Any guesses on the Hydra Leader on the alien planet?

Couldn't you just launch a stick of dynamite down the road?  They'd hear a bang and start in that direction.  And then continue moving...

Why would anyone choose Sasha over Rosita???

Abraham isn't all there.

Different strokes.  Rosita is gorgeous, but she's also not all that bright and she's kind of needy.  Sasha post-breakdown seems a bit more capable.

I say, it's the apocalypse - why not both??

I haven't read any of the Negan books - I'm trying to stay a season behind with the books - but I expect the whole kneeling thing is part of his gig.  I'm thinking he's king of the wasteland.  Submit to his will, and he takes care of you.

Didn't they say the name of the leader of the exposition to find the thieves?  Wade maybe?

It does seem to be a different group than the Wolves.  They're in clean clothes, have vehicles and guns... totally different MO.  And also no Ws on their foreheads.

This show is so good at generating tension.  I believed Abraham could have bought it when he was messing with the soldier over the bridge.  I believed Daryl could have been popped by the couple.  That's very refreshing about this show... you never know when someone's going to die, so you're always scared.

So does the "Help" at the end mean they're going to resolve the Glenn issue before the fall finale?

Decent casting.  He was excellent in Supernatural.

I see plenty of women post on FB about Glenn/Maggie.  I interpret that to be a big draw for the ladies.

Did anyone see the cover of the book that Tera kicked across the floor to the new "doctor?"  It was blue and had gold embossed lettering that said "Gray's Anatomy."  Stupid ass show, but still pretty cool to see.

Pretty sure that's the real name of the standard medical anatomy book.  Anybody know if dude's "cure" holds any medical truth?  I don't think removing puss from an infected wound typically results in vast improvements to health.  But I could be wrong.

The only thing that seemed amiss, was the crack in the steel wall at the end.  I saw all the walkers banging on the fence and was thinking back to the prison when the walkers eventually pushed the fence down.

I didn't think that was a crack.  I thought it was blood dripping from somewhere.

I agree with the rest of your assessment.  Not a great episode.  I think the plot developments this week were all about who's hooking up with who.  Not super interesting to the members of this forum, but they gotta cater to their female viewers at some point.

They run smoother on current gen than they do on last gen.

So I'm guessing he's skipping Daisy because Daisy is very effective at drawing out Inhumans to eliminate?  It can't be just so he can get to the lightning dude.

This week's episodes blew me away.  That the survivor survived was completely unexpected.  The identity of Lash was even more unexpected.  But the top thing that happened - Powers Boothe showed up!  Playing, one must assume, the same character he played in The Avengers!  The Security Council dude who tried to nuke NYC!!  And he's with Hydra!!!  I was like "holy crap!" over and over and over again.

Every single episode this season has knocked it out of the park.

Great update!  I hope you get it resolved soon and without much hassle.  I also hope that the guy who has it now doesn't trash it before you can get it back.

I wouldn't worry about that much.  If he trashes it, he'd be liable for damages.  It's one thing to lose your million-dollar stolen car.  It's another thing to have to pay to repair a million-dollar car you intentionally damaged.
