I guess they just stole some stuff from them, because Talking Dead didn't list them in the "Goodbye to those who died".

Seems nuts to tip their hand  by killing Saviors at this point...even though Michonne already has...and Carl...and Daryl...

Meanwhile, ratings are down to their lowest levels since Season 2

Maybe, just MAYBE, fans are finally getting sick of these horrible filler episodes

To me I want to see them explore, or find themselves in some kind of NEW situation.  To me, Negan is just a more extreme version of the Governor, or the Terminus guys...  He's a hell of a character - but we've in a sense got two whole seasons invested in him.  That's all fine and dandy, but it's getting stale - especially when you kind of START the season at a crescendo.  I hope the finale is everything we've been patiently waiting for - and then I hope something actually new happens going forward.  I love this show, even when it's not great, but it's only going to last so long while the gang is just going from bad guy to badder guy.

If they really want to jump start the ratings again, just ditch the comic already. Let the show chart its own course organically, instead of being enslaved to Kirkman's blueprint. They have to get off the bad guy/people of the week mentality. I agree that it is getting really old.

Would be way more interesting to see some kind of evolution of the virus or the walkers themselves. Or more about the mysterious black helicopter from Season One. Or anything other than just meeting other bad survivors.

The Terminus people were actually interesting...  They were insane, and weird.  Negan really is just a more extreme version of the Governor and what the Governor would've maybe become over time had he not flipped his wig on his people and met up with Rick. 

I'm anxious for this war to start and see how that goes, but it's all just build-up now like (again) the Governor's whole deal, which happened twice to boot, so this is three times now down the same basic road.

At the same time the whole character growth thing is sort of important to see too and I liked watching Rick and Michonne's relationship grow and fall apart (in a sense) in one episode... 

Sasha and Rosita are fn stupid.  I'd actually like to find them under Lucille's anger at this point.  They should just somehow wind up FearTWD at this point they're so annoying.  Maybe Tara can drive them out West.

The show has already taken a pretty big departure from the comics.  Characters like Daryl and Sasha don't even exist in the comics, nor do the river people are the junk yard people.  Heck, Andrea is still a huge part of the comics.  I like the Negan storyline, but they should be doing more with it instead of these filler episodes.  It;s like they come up with what they want to be milestone episodes, then just fill in the space around them.  Post Negan, the comics skip a few years to find an older Rick/Carl and gang, so that will have to be a nother big departure from the show.  And if they bring along the next batch of challenges from the comics, I think people are going to be pretty happy with what comes next.

I think one thing weighing it down at this point is that the survivors pretty much have the zombie thing under control.  Zombies don't pose the risk they once did.  Sure, there's accidents here and there... but even in a room full of zombies, you don't think any of the experienced zombie-killers are in any danger.  Like someone joked here - nobody watching the show thought Rick was dead (although I did believe Michonne thought he was dead, and there was a chance she'd get bitten while in shock... probably the most on-edge I've been all season).

When the main threat is no longer a threat, it's kinda lame.

When its played for laughs now...macabre humor of Rick getting GI Zombie out from the windshield, you know the threat is done.

How about a new twist where they encounter walkers but the walker are robots. LOL. Fake zombies!

That's great it starts with an cantaloupe, Lennie James is not a dope...

Richard didn't know Morgan used to be a detective under a LOW WINTER SUN.

Carol's premonitions make her seek the truth! I guess.

Hey, Morgan want some earrings to go with that choker?

Lot of rigamarole ultimately signifying nothing, except they found a way to stop paying two more actors, lol.

If the guy really wanted to start something, why not just pull a gun and shoot one of the Saviors when they showed up for the drop? I guess that wouldn't take a whole episode to develop though.

At least Morgan got his wood back.  :D

He needed to be the victim in order for Ezekiel to authorize going to war with the saviors.

I believe the idea is to make The Kingdom want to join the other groups wage war against The Saviors and catch The Saviors off guard so killing a Savior at the drop would be a terrible idea

I am so bored with the show. I don't even watch it on Sunday anymore. I DVR it and watch it when i get the chance during the week. I am unsure what they could do to get my excitement back though. I dislike the character specific episodes without a doubt.
