Don't they show the car from a distance followed by a muffled gunshot?  I don't see any way she's still alive and/or helping, or who else would have been shot.

Oh yeah.  I forgot about that. That was kind of dumb that we heard a silenced pistol, through closed windows, at a half mile out.

Anybody back in on the second half of the season?

Last night was pretty decent, but it looks like this half of the season will be a total build up and the war might begin at the end of the season.


















Also, anybody think we might see an infection and a handless Rick soon?

I'm still in. Always will be. These two episodes have been fine. But yeah I think we will see the build up to the war, maybe the start of it and then wait until season 7 for the actual war.

Last night was pretty dreadful.  So we're 2 or 3 years out from the outbreak, and the trash people have forgotten how to speak proper English?  And have begun dressing like weirdos despite mountains of suitable clothing all around them?  And walk around like silent drones? 

Did the toxins in the dump cause widespread brain damage?

That was literally just about the stupidest segment I've seen in the series.

Sure, spike zombie was pretty awesome.  And there were some nice moments with Ezekiel and then between Daryl and Carol.  But pretty mush all of that good will got flushed by the mute trash cult.

My wife and I chuckled at the Trash People too - very Mad Max like while all the other groups are living fairly normal lives.

I couldn't decide if I thought the trash people were too over the top or if I buy anything can happen to people in this environment.

Yeah, that was some over the top Beyond Thunderdome crap right there. We need a catchy name for those weirdos. Refuseniks? Children of the Junk?

I don't think I got about half of what she was saying either. Not sure how Rick would consider them trustworthy co-fighters. Let's give the bunch of culty nut bars lots of weapons and hope for the best!

"Winston" was awesome and looked like something straight out of LOTR.

Will Tara give up the beach people?

And what about Heath!?  :D

I'd comment but I don't post here anymore.  :-X However, know that IMDB has shut down their boards 4-ever...I guess I'll chime in.

The autistic junkions were odd and the shots of Rick in front of the vast CGI junkyard were so bad... :D

Is it me or are women with bangs like that always odd? Even the actress seems a tad strange.

Too lazy to get the boat stuff themselves, but not too lazy to demand food by threatening Father Gabriel? What?  ???

Winston...lose-ston. Why would anyone go that much trouble to outfit a walker?

Daryl and the tiger...IT'S AN ANIMAL THANG!

Morgan lost his wood.  :P

Most poignant scene: "My sister had a dress like that."  :'(

Previous episode. I can't understand the saviors wasting RPG rockets for a walker trap. No one's making any more anti-tank ammo, probably not even Eugene

I just figured they were all the emo kids at Starbucks staring at their phones until they lost all wifi.
This is the way.

I did not understand the Scavengers group at all.  People living in trash piles was a neat concept, and that spike zombie trap was pretty cool, even if Rick was able to defeat it by throwing pillows on him.  But the weird talking and behavior was definitely over the top.  It was like they were a hive mind or something.  What was with that scene where they all walk out in different directions for a while then magically form a circle around Rick and company?  I thought they were going to bust into a flash mob performance.  Their policy of not interfering, but interfering was super confusing as well.  I hope there's a better explanation coming for these weirdos.  I may have to watch this week's episode again as I'm sure I missed a few things.  Nice to see Carol and Daryl reunite, but I didn't like him lying to her about everyone being okay.  I get it, but seems out of character for him.  They need all the fighters they can get - seems really odd to not recruit Carol back into the fold, though I don't really get her "retirement" either.  I will watch this show to the bitter end no matter what, but they need to do a better job of clarifying people's motivations going forward.

I haven't read the comics to know if the Trash People are part of the official story or not, but I just assumed from a TV perspective that they're cannon fodder for the coming war against The Saviors.

My guess is that Neagan will get Carol and Darryl will be the one that ultimately takes out Neagan.

Rick already told Neagan that he was going to kill him, so I'd be surprised if it wasn't Rick.

I haven't seen an episode this half season and I'm not sure if I will. The show is quickly entering "binge watch" territory for me
