What did grenade guy say before he pulled the pin?

Ha. I rewound and listened like five times and still don't know.

Yeah I gave up after 3 tries.  I was thinking maybe it wasn’t English.

Just looked it up:

Quote
The Reaper drops his knife like a mic, grins, and mutters what sounded to me like a Native American chant but I’m told by the internets was actually the words “Pope marked you” in a British accent — all before pulling the pin on a grenade.

I agreed at first. But afterwards I did appreciate seeing that side of Daryl.

I guess, but 10 years in to the show I'm not sure how much backstory I need on the main characters. 

I'll be interested to see how they wrap up the show as it comes to a close, and what sort of constraints COVID might have on the script.  Maybe its just the cynical side of me but watching last night's show (3 actors and just a few walkers) and based on next week's preview too it looks like just a few actors as well.  I wonder if we're not going to have any big walker hoards, or large groups of core characters all together.

I wonder if that is what is delaying Eugene and Ezekiel's story line or why that hasn't been touched on yet.

I also thought when I saw next week is just a couple characters that we might get nothing but that now. "How few actors can we get by making an episode with?"

Even the way they shot yesterday's episode I don't think there were more than a couple of brief scenes where any of the actors were on camera at the same time, much less within 6' of each other.  Lots of point of view camera angles where there was only one actor on the screen at one time.

I always watch with the CC on for this very reason.  I knew what he said, but still doesn't make any sense to me.  Who the hell is pope?

We finally have the origin story for the most interesting character in the Walking Dead universe....Dog.
This is the way.

Just watched it yesterday... agreed it was boring. 

And now the Reapers... another clan, another name... this show unfortunately has gotten insanely repetitive, but without most of the most interesting characters.

Wow.  The ending of last night's episode took a bit of a dark turn.

A little more action than the first episode, but still a bit of a snooze.

I would have preferred they ended it without finding the brother. "Did Gabrielle do the right thing?". Aaron was talking about helping people and then look what Gabrielle has become. I liked that feeling from the show I got immediately after he kills Mays more than after seeing what he had done to his brother and family.

Totally agree. 

You felt the conflict after Gabriel arm-maced him, but after seeing the messed up stuff with the brother you had to wonder how sick in the head the guy was.  It kind of took away from the previous scene.
