I liked the ending of this half of the season. Lays out expectations for some serious violence in the fall. I assume the core go guerilla. It seems the only tactic that makes sense.

I assume they are going to join forces with the Hilltop and the Kingdom and maybe the crazy bitches for a big fight.

About the only good thing in this episode was Rick's look when Negan told him what was going on while he was out risking his life collecting things.

The rest was just boring and shock death writing which just isn't shocking any more.

The last 3 minutes was cringeworthy.

Too much misery. Perhaps they had to end the run of Rick's group steamrolling over everyone else, but it went so far the other way that it's just unpleasant.

They haven't ended that at all.

The past half season has not seen Rick's group steamrolling over other people, has it? Two of them had their brains bashed in, Daryl was locked in solitary, they handed over all their guns etc.. ??

The comics tell us what's coming. Maybe a surprise with daryl or carol, but the bare bones is there. No pun intended.

I'm of the view that once the saviour war is over the show should end. Maybe that's just me.

Yeah, I stopped watching after a couple of episodes of the last season. Lost all interest in it, no longer cared at all about any of the characters or the story (or lack of).

Glenn died and the ratings cried.  I didn't even see more than 1-2 people excited about it on Facebook.

I haven't watched since the episode before the cliffhanger "who is going to get beat to death episode". I thought this story arc wasn't particularly good in the comics and it's even worse here. Maybe I'll come back when they get past it, but probably not.

I watched.  It's more of the same: talk for 30 minutes, 5-10 minutes of zombie "action" followed by another 10-20 minutes of talking with a "surprise" cliffhanger at the end.  It's really not that horrible compared to the other dreck on TV, but it's not must-tune-in TV.  It's the kind of thing I wish was already released so I could just marathon it in a weekend without annoying commercials.

Midseason finale was last night. The war still drags on. The idiots on Team Rick screw up the plan and now everyone is scrambling. The traitor is revealed. And a *shocking* reveal at the end of the episode. (*SPOILER* it's not really that shocking*SPOILER*)

There was a perfectly good reason for that:  .

Honestly, this season has felt more like an action movie than the Walking Dead.  They've strayed from their roots.  There was a way to do the current storylines - even with characters as vivid as Negan - and not have it feel like Die Hard: Zombageddon.  They needed this to feel more gritty and less heroic.  Rick's solo mission, rocket launchers... that is not what the story needs.

That leap forward was obviously a delusion since

My guess is that the leaps forward represented Carl's hopes for a peaceful future.

Now, Negan seems to think that injuring someone with a bat coated with zombie goo is going to have the same effect as a bite.

It's possible he might just be proved wrong, but leaving that aside - we've seen people covered in zombie goo many times in the past, for one reason or another, and it stands to reason people sometimes got that stuff in their eyes or mouth or whatever... plus people are liable to have the odd cut or scratch on their hands even when they don't live in a post-apocalyptic society ... yet up to now it's seemed clear that no amount of zombie blood and guts has any effect if you don't actually get bitten.

I'm still enjoying this show though.
