Confused though. Does Negan want more people like him, or does he just want a bunch or slaves? Get the sense that anyone he sees as a threat(other than those with "feelings") he'd take out.

I would guess that the ones who come to an understanding that its better to get along will be useful...

You take the able bodied men who have come to the realization that intensity of violence is the currency of the world. They become your army.

The ones who are too weak, too stupid, or too soft go and work to provide resources. Those resources are given to the men in his army who put in the dirty work, which attracts more men to his ranks.

Kind of like how North Korea does it now. You can starve in the fields, or you can join the army and you, and your family, will be taken care of. When you have a stranglehold over finite resources, you can do as you please.

Any thoughts on Ezekiel?


IMO this is the most interesting the show has been in some time. However again, I feel like it's much of the same storylines with different faces.




I do like the characters of Negan and Ezekiel though

Any non blanket statements to express your opinion? Are there specific examples?

Another safe haven where everything isn't as rosy as it first appears? Haven't we seen this before?

it's a zombie apocalype.
There was a guy above who wrote that he's done with this revenge shit... in a show about zombie apocalypse.
Guys just don't understand what they're watching.

Doesn't make it any less redundant.

It's nice that our main faction will now be split as third parties among two other factions. How good those other factions will be is a guess. Historically they've been pretty bad. However I'll admit these seem more interesting. But that also is based on an awfully limited sample. And I thought Ezekial was pretty ridiculous until that third act last night. Cautiously hopeful.

Man I still wish they'd do more with the sets. Nothing looks nearly apocalyps'y enough. Where's the recyclable steampunk type technology? Why does everyone look like they've had an infinite number of Banana Republic's to raid? Good to see horses around.

Damn. Carl was bitten by a zombie. You saw in the trailer that Rick buried him.

I just got caught up. That whole fight scene with Rick and Negan didn't make sense. You get pushed out a window and have a gun on you and the guy inside has nothing but a bat? Kill Negan and the war is over. Why not kick down the door and go back in for the kill shot?

Answer: To drag this show on even longer.

Not true, the WD has had some great episodes, characters and action. But it does have issues in between.

Also, I wish the zombies were more like 28 days later at first until they got older. After a while, it got old with how easy they were to kill by hand unless there were overwhelming numbers. And they're so loud and dumb that they should never be able to surprise any human.

I'm a couple episodes behind. So you're telling me yet again someone had a shot at Negan and they didn't take it? How many times has that been?

They really are dragging out the Savior conflict. I feel like the Saviors & Negan have been kind of lame despite their swagger. Every time Rick's group decides to take them on, a ton of Saviors get killed, and hardly anyone of importance on Rick's side dies.
