Well...it was what it was.

I was really, really underwhelmed by all of it.  The twist with Maggie and Darryl might be interesting if the writers actually do something. I can't see them being bad guys, but as was mentioned, some sort of rift between them.

The fight with Rick and Negan was boring.  The whole episode was just blah...so much hype and so little anything.  This had to be one of the worst season finales.  There was no tension at all in the episode, and nothing really leading into next season.  I guess we'll find out in October.

I didn't watch FTWD, but I plan to get to it later today.  (Took the day off to deal with what is about to become water damaged home renovation).

Yeah.... it was amazingly obvious what was going ot happen with those bullets as soon as Eugene had Negan try a few, and even moreso when you saw that no one else fired a shot until they were ALL going to fire at once.

Alright though, Eugene wasn't bad.

Also, in real life I'm a lock-'em-up-forever kind of guy who's not big on the death penalty, but in Walking Dead life, I'm on team Maggie in terms of Negan.

The season ended the way All Out War ended in the comics...kinda meh.

I'm guessing the Maggie/Jesus/Darryl plot will also, most likely, follow the comics....they're going to hatch a plan to kill Negan at some point, but they'll eventually not kill him.

I'm about halfway through FTWD, and I like what's going on.  I have a feeling half the season will be updating the audience on what everyone was doing throughout the time jump.

Lauren Cohan hasn't signed back up, seems unlikely she'll be a regular on the series.

Next season, big time jump and Maggie will have died off screen,  and her kid is a teenager.

Finished The Fear season premier last night and thought it was interesting that we see everyone but Daniel and Madison.  I have a feeling that Madison has been separated from her kids and Strand since the season 3 finale, and has set up a safe place that they will encounter in the next couple of episodes.  I have no clue where Daniel is, and I'm not sure if I care.

I watched FTWD last night and actually enjoyed the episode immensely.  To me it had the feel of earlier TWD episodes.  It seemed to offer the glimpses of hope and kindness and then shatters it.

As the episode ended, I found myself intrigued by the direction that the original characters have gone during the time hop.  I wonder if in some fashion they turned from trying to be good people to literally becoming the bad guys. Perhaps not bad, but definitely not extremely concerned with being decent.  I'm looking forward to the next episode.

Since Westworld took priority of FTWD last night, I am putting in a placeholder so I can see new comments and not get spoiled.  :D

FTWD has mech suits now. Our "heroes" are living in a stadium and have taught walkers how to play baseball.  The villains are the Great Northern Tribe led by Bruce Spence.

I forgot how Into the Badlands ended last season. Their world still makes no sense, but it's a decent show.

That stadium is about 15 miles from me! It belongs to the Round Rock Express, minor league team for the Rangers, and owned by Nolan Ryan's son Reid. Fear was filming there most of last summer/fall.

The team is doing a Walking Dead night next month, where the team will wear the uniforms from the show. I preordered the Armadillos hat they made a small amount of. :)

^^That's pretty cool.

Being a Texan, I do get tired of the stereotypes.  FTWD has definitely played into that with that new character.  It's a bit annoying.  We don't all walk around with hats, boots, and a revolver on our hip.

So in the 2.5 year time jump, Madison found her kids and Strand, made it to Texas, spent several months making the stadium into a fortress for it all to be taken down in 12 hours by lil' Negan and his band of travelling ********?

Lmao @ “lil Negan and his band of traveling ********”.

I’d go see that band.

Having lived in Texas for six years I can say that you're absolutely right.  You don't all do that. 

But most of you do.   :)
