Every time I think of TWD premier tonight - I keep hearing Wash’s voice in my head “Do we care? Are we caring about that?”

Pretty good episode last night.  The Negan storyline was a bit different from what I expected.

Bit of a slow episode last night...but it's needed to develop some of the new characters.

Glad to see some people are still making stupid decision in TWD universe.

Also, love the look of Alpha....they nailed it!

I really liked it. Loved Alpha. Thought it needed to be slow to sell Lydia and Alpha

Totally get why the episode was the way it was.

**Possible Spoilers**
























I liked how they handled Lydia's flashbacks to show how her mother had manipulated her throughout the early days of the apocalypse.

I don't have DVR since we've just about cut the cord, so I watch on Monday morning through the app.  I watched this morning after I got up.


Slllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

I know it's plot development, but goodness, almost the entire episode involved standing in front of Hilltop. 

Oh yeah...and everyone got a case of the conscience.  I know it'll develop, but I just wasn't drawn in, so I'm being grumpy.

This whole show is getting goofier.

We're ten years in to the zombie apocalypse and the fact that Henry is falling in love in one day with some random person when there is a small army outside the walls that just killed Jesus?

I didn't read the comic, but I'm still annoyed that a roving group (The Whisperers) can get enough food and water to survive 10 years in.  Nobody in The Whisperers has so much as a fanny pack with a water bottle much less a backpack filled with essentials.

I really hope they don't continue to let this show die a slow death.  They should figure out how many episodes they've got left (1-2 seasons) and write a compelling story line and wrap this thing up.  the actors that play Maggie and Rick both got bored and moved on.  I'm almost at that point too.

Teenagers getting crushes doesn't bother me. Carl did it with her in the comics and it was fine then too.

Still don't know why we've decided The Whispers can't have a camp. And I like the idea of the Whisperers so I just can't get worked up on how they get their food. I'll just assume it makes sense.

After two seasons of being let down I really like this season.

Ratings wise they should probably consider their end game different than the comics. But I also think it probably ends super opened ended so I think they have some room to wiggle

The whisperers are lvl 10 foragers (last week's scene of Lydia eating the worm was the establishment of that).  I don't remember if they have a camp per se, but they live like the animals....animals do survive in the wild even 10 years into the zombie apocalypse.

One scene I really liked last night was when the deaf chick saved the baby.  The way they muted the sound to put it all in her perspective was pretty cool!

Also, Darryl, Tara and Michonne have alluded to something bad happening between the communities after Rick "died" causing the current situation.  I'm hoping there will be a larger flashback this season explaining what happened and how Michonne and Darryl ended up so scarred.

I thought there was a good level of tension throughout the episode.  I was afraid that Jerry was going to bite it on the theater mission just because of the way they started the show.  The fact that they got away with so many stupid decisions scott-free was surprising.  I guess it speaks to their overall competence multiple-years post-apocalypse.  What's 30 zombies matter?  Barely break a sweat.  At any rate, it had me on the edge of my seat.

The whole Whisperer thing is still monumentally stupid.  Must be tons of potable standing water near the herds they hang out with.

Looked like Negan got sick after one drink of surface water a couple of weeks ago, but these guys seem to have it down pat.  It'd suck to keep following a heard with dysentery running out your backside from a breakfast of worms and muddy pond water.

When that happened, I immediately turned to my wife and said, "whelp....he's a goner!".  Only to find out the entire scene was a flashback.

Why can't they have a camp somewhere near the herds to get water at?

Don't answer.

1) I would seriously be afraid if I came across Alpha in a zombie apocalypse.

2) I can see the whisperers developing  immunity to bacteria they're constantly exposed to... if they don't die from dysentery first.

3) I thought Alpha said something about the walking dead crew going to their territory. So are the baddies nomads or do they have a base? And if the cemetery is part of their home turf, how is this the first time everyone's bumped into each other in 6+ years?

4) Latex gloves that haven't deteriorated 10 years in? Ok, that was a nitpick, but it did get me to thinking: Why aren't there more kids? Vinegar-soaked cloth? Fish bladders? Honey and crocodile dung?
