You must be a pretty big fan Alpha if you keep watching despite thinking every episode of this season sucked except for one episode.

I've thought most of them were decent, but three stood out for being awesome in my opinion. Episode 5, Internment was great. Mostly centered around Hershel doing his best to save the sick. I was just a big fan if him in this episode. He was very selfless and showed that the apocalypse didn't crush everyone's humanity. The world never brought him down with it and I thought the actor Scott Wilson (Hershel) did a wonderful job. Easily one of my favorite episodes of the series. Hershel still stands as my favorite character of the series.

Episode 8, too far gone was an action packed episode that I really enjoyed. It brought a conclusion to a huge storyline and set the pace for a new chapter in the series. Great episode that left me in awe.

And of course, episode 14, the grove. Good stuff.

Good points, no mercy. I look forward to see how these conditions continue to effect the characters mentally. I continue to be impressed with Carol. She may be the most developed character of the series.

With the bar being set incredibly high to create shock value I think "The Grove" was one of those episodes for The Walking Dead. Not quite as poignant as the ones below, but it's up there. It'll get there when one of the major characters fall in a heroic moment.

SOA - "Laying Pipe" with Opie. An episode I'll probably never watch again and til this day one of the most powerful ones I've ever witnessed.

GOT - The Red Wedding - Second to "Laying Pipe" for me only because I had already expected it. However it was still very intense. Major credit for the actors all across the board for playing out a very difficult scene.

The Sopranos - "Long Term Parking" w/ Adriana. That was so well played out.

Hershel was a great character. He was exactly like Dale; the conscience of the group.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Genuinely didn't get all the fuss about this episode. It was good, it was dark, but nothing overly shocking happened imo. Probably because as characters, even though they were children, I didn't really care. We didn't see the death of Mika, and tbh it didn't come as unexpected. Lizzie just irritated me so I wasn't bothered with her being killed. As soon as Mika was shown dead it was pretty obvious Lizzie's time was limited.

Hey, I have hope. Maybe things will get better. I should at least finish these last one or two eps and see where it's going.

Also, when I said every episode has sucked, I meant the second half of this season. First half was good for the most part. The last episode with the tank was amazing.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

The surprising part to me was that she killed Mika instead of Judith. As soon as the episode started I bet my buddy that Lizzie was going to kill the baby. I was almost right.

I like the way the story paths are starting to cross, with the smoke in the woods and charred walkers means that Beth & Darryl weren't that far away, also with Darryl being with that group with Rick under the bed is clever. I now believe that that group are The. Hunters, which will culminate at the end of the season with all of them reuniting to take them on.

I always held hope that the long game of this season would pay off and I think once once the end of the seasons credits have rolled we will look back and see how clever it all was.

A friend said Daryl...ahha. But he's one of the main characters and I think tons of fans would probably stop watching. I'll say this though I don't have the same affinity to the characters as I did with the Sopranos, SOA, or Game Of Thrones. They usually kill off minor supporting characters and keep the core. But eventually the mains will die off one way or another.

It won't be Daryl or at least I will be beyond shocked.

I don't think anyone. There will be a lot of deaths once Negan gets introduced so I think they leave every alive.

I'm guessing Carl and Glenn. Those would both be pretty surprising, but not a total loss.
