The plot holes are only from a stand point of someone who loves this shit. Every man loves to think he's got the apocalypse sorted

But I would have tuned in to see the fallout regardless. Joe Snow being killed worked because people were like "Oh shit Jon Snow is dead, what happens now?". I think they should have showed us who died and have THAT be the cliffhanger.

I still loved the season none the less.

A monumental episode for the season 7 premiere introducing a far more deadly antagonist.

A slow build to reveal who had taken one for the team.

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

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

They definitely got Neegan right, that was brutal but if you have to pick between Daryl and Rosa why would you take Daryl.

I am 100% ready for Shiva

Make the WW division great again

The ending of last season was atrocious, but that misdirection imo fully made up for it. While I did think the first one went out like a complete boss and in the perfect way, I also thought it was the stupidest coop out to give us someone who is barely a main character yet. Then...boom. Perfect. Unfortunately I kind of spoiled it myself beforehand but none the less it was epic.

Negan's absolutely killing it as a bad guy. The Governor was a bad guy for sure, pretty mental, but he made stupid mistakes and never had full control. Negan won't make the mistakes as he's a sick bastard but not an "insane" one, and he has ultimate control.

My only issue is that there were loads of chances for Rick to kill him. Yeah, sure, the first time didn't go so well. But when Negan's sitting right next to you with a hatchet in one hand and a bat in the other, you have a shot of ending that. This being said, Rick got smashed by Governor so he isn't much of a fighter. Shane woulda ended that shit. Seems like the storyline they are going for with Rick is the Reek one. Rick will be mentally broken down to the point where he doesn't even want to kill him anymore.

I still love the henchmen. One thing TWD has been missing is having notable people that are important deaths on the other side. Tank Driver dude wasn't enough. Now we've got the blonde guy with the burns, and Trevor Phillips (who I'm thinking is actually a very solid actor, even if he only has one character). Both of them will be solid in Negan's team.

Since Glen's DEAD...

I saw this MMA ad and it kinda put a smile on my face and made me forget about how bad I hate Negan. Hopefully, it makes you guys laugh as hard as I did

It's funny. I'm watching TWD, thinking "How do they live like this?" but so many people in the real world have to live like that. So many countries, like Russia, where people just do what they want and the "little people" just have to smile and accept it.

One thing that shows me that the show has been brilliant is how much I have answered from above. Before, I thought of the concept of Negan controlling the area for manufacturing. Using Alexandria for housing and general production and Hill Top for food. I thought that it made more sense for them to focus on that side of things. But since then, TWD has answered why this isn't the case. Negan isn't looking for a stable community and world. He wants it to be decay. He likes a dictatorship. He encourages people to abuse others. He's a psychopath who gets a hard on for making people suffer.

All through the episode, I wanted Rick to try and approach it like business. I've always thought that in these situations, it would be good to make your "captor" believe you are assisting them. Talk to Negan about plans for better growth, ask for advice or help in doing something, make some form of suggestion about something. Just get it rolling. But I keep forgetting that this isn't what Negan wants. He doesn't want a business partner. He doesn't care about you providing for him. He just wants to see that look of hatred in your eyes, followed by the look of helplessness when he snaps it out of you. Trying to act like you're happy with the arrangement would only make him feel that you're not quite unhappy enough, so he has to do something much worse to get that reaction from you.

I like the dynamic of the "rebellious few". These people have no connections. Rosita has nothing without Abraham, Spencer has nothing without his parents and mate. These people won't lose sleep over the mutilation of Carl. They're not up at night thinking about Glenn's death. They make these decisions because they have no consequences to fear, that's a cool dynamic.

I wish The King was a stronger character. He seemed like a joke, and he even admitted to just being into theatre in the episode. He feels like Iron Man's Mandarin. If there was actually some big badass black dude with a tiger, it'd be interesting to watch him clash with Negan.

They are gonna head down an interesting road too. Currently, the only ones people are pulling for are Rick and Daryl. Rick sees the situation and we all want what he says to be followed to avoid cnts dying (I mean from an engrossed point of view, not from an entertainment point of view) and Daryl is still being a badass prisoner. But Rick's treatment of Spencer was to mimmick how Negan's treating Rick. It's going to be like how the school bully always had an abusive father. Negan punishes Rick, Rick punishes Spencer. Negan makes Rick feel weak, Rick makes Spencer feel weak. So we're gonna get Rick, the only current "good guy", doing some bad shit. Daryl will likely "turn to the dark side" for a while, a little bit like he almost did with that group last season, and he's start doing some bad shit for Saviours. So our good guys are turning into bad guys, which will be cool.

Okay. This season is really pissing me off. I thought the first episode was decent. Everything since then has been crap. Last night was an hour wasted of my life. I've been waiting to see how Rick and the group are going to get their balls back to fight Negan all season. I saw a notice last night there's only two episodes left before a break. WTF. NOTHING HAS HAPPENED SINCE THE FIRST EPISODE.

I wasn't upset at the ending from last season. I am starting the get pissed at the show right now.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

This show has been quite a waste of time for a while. When it's good, it's excellent. When it's not, it's just boring filler crap that know one really gives a shit about. Give me Shiva back as well you cunts. Still, Negan when he's on screen is amazing. Him, Rick, Ezekiel, Maggie, Daryl and Jesus need more screen time.
