The finale was brutal.  Jimmy's gonna be in sad shape next season.

That droid is called an "Astromech Droid."

I take the anti-women-only protest as more of a "trying to prove a point" protest than a "legitimately offended" protest.  I read somewhere that there were some guys who drove hours to attend the Austin screening only to learn when they arrived that they weren't allowed in, and I'm sure those guys had legit beef.  But everyone else I think it's the same sort of faux rage used all over the place to point out hypocrisy and express general cultural discontent.

I saw it three times over the weekend.  Totally awesome.

There were a couple things I thought were a bit too over the top.  Defying physics for the sake of humor.  And I don't understand why those pillars started rising to the surface other than the story needed some means of transport at that moment.  But those are just a minor niggles out of 2+ hours of joy.

New toy line for it?  Hard to imagine $ being left on the table.  Summer movie and all.

Because all the kids want to play with an action figure of a 78-year-old man.

I'm loving this new arc after the winter break.  I was TOTALLY geeking out over the way the adapted the "What If?" comic book series (a favorite of mine as a kid).  And the way they've executed it is spot-on.

I also didn't expect them to spend as much time in the framework as they have.  Usually these alt-universe episodes are a 1-off or 2-parter.

It's been fun seeing some old faces.  And I'm sad to see The Patriot bite it.

In the comics now, he has a prosthetic hook....shouldn't be too hard to do in the show.

They wouldn't go CGI, so it'd have to look all goofy and huge like Merle's.  Unless they opt for a gold hand like they do for Jaime in GoT.

And honestly, there's really zero benefit to doing it.

And the showrunners have explained that it'd be too costly to CGI out his hand going forward.  I don't expect it'll ever happen.

It was a pretty decent finale.  I think they drew out the Sasha thing a bit much, given that everyone knew exactly what was going to happen way before the reveal.  It was nice to see Abraham, though.

My one nitpick - so trash lady has Rick covered with her pistol.  Shots start ringing out.  And yet she decides to just stand there upright, on an exposed platform, for several minutes, and doesn't pull the trigger??  Even if she was under orders to bring Rick in alive, that's some ridiculous self-control.  That's me... the first pop I hear and I'm unloading the magazine with zero prejudice.

It was brilliant stuff.

I can see how some people would find that line clever and funny.

Some people.

There's a theory out that Negan was bluffing, claiming to know something so Sasha might confirm it.
