    I wish. Then we wouldn’t have to watch her cringeworthy ‘sexy walking ever again.

    Funny uncle Negan. Why are no red flags going up with anyone that this psychopath man is so sweet on a little girl. Hullo? Michonne?

    Why was the snow glowing on Negan.? Did they throw sequins on him?

    Nothing about this guy (character AND actor) isn't annoying as fuck to me. I bet in the original script he played a ukulele.

    And why doesnt any smell that enormous herd of them? And why dont the seemingly supierior helicopter people not drop homemade napalm on them, or something, it is a menace? Or warn people via pamplets? or something, anything, because it sure as hell can be seen from above, and they fly those friendly skies. Nothing makes sense, or ever will. Sometimes it sounds like Morton's only exposure to a southern accent has been Jessica Lange's Constance Langdon one from American Horror Story: Murder House, which was deliberately campy.

    Where's the democracy in Alexandria or any of these places? Because in a sane world, the majority od itizens in those small struggling communities, having been told about the death cult of creeps, would have booted Lydia out, immediately. If they wanted to be nice about it, theyd give her food and gear her (& Henry, even) up, and then tell them good luck and scram. And why should anyone care about Lydia? Lydia remembers movies, so she must be older than Hornry. She looks about 18-21 years old. At 14 youre probably old enough to run away and make due, in this world. Carl could have done it, and plus she knows how to use walkers to her advantage. When Michonne was telling her she needs to get up and leave the community on her own because if not she was going to get a lot of people killed essentially, and she was just looking at her dumbly, I was so rooting for Michonne to just say, Fuck it, and grab her by the ear and drag her outside the walls. And what about Michonne's Big Reveal from last week? ABout how she doesnt trust anyone anymore, So much so that she turns her back and doesnt even visit with any OGs who took her ass in, like Carol, or ones who fought with her, like Tara, etc? It should have meant she never would have relented on taking dumbass kids into the community, or old school buddies that you hardly knew. Not the people who took her in, and fought alongside her. Another character ruined beyond any redemption. And Warden Rick sent your ass *packing*, Michonne. He DID decide to turn you over to the governor, and under way less harsh circumstances. It doesnt make a g.d. difference if he had accepted her in the beginning, because she was a nobody. It wasnt until the Guv gave Rick an ultimatum to hand her over or get wiped out, that he had to make the hard decision between her and everyone else getting slaughtered. And this was *after* Merle took Rick to task and told him exactly how the Guv was going to brutally torture Michonne for days before killing her. Hershel himself was ready to hand her over, not wanting his daughters to get killed by sparing a stranger. Honestly, there is no choice for a leader. You do not sacrifice your community of people for a stranger. At least there was a third option for Lydia, and that would have been to send her packing with supplies. She'd have had a fighting chance. Barring that, she could have slunk back to her mother and still recieved the beatings, until she eventually ran off, fought back and killed her. She wasnt living under a death sentence. But what do you expect? This show is so badly written that the questionable things that dont make sense, outweigh any plausible character development and story 10:1. You can literally go on for days pointing out the nonsensical stuff in these episodes, The writing is so bad that posters on forums have to make up reasons or how things off screen and never explained may have happened. At that point, it just becomes writing fan fiction in order to make any kind of sense. The weather is obviously not the same in their alternate universe or non-humans and non-zombies, too. As it doesnt freeze any of the limbs of thee rotting walkers, re the preview.

    The stink of uncool is pretty heavy on this show, now. I doubt that they are going to get many young people on board to watch the franchise, which is what they are rolling the dice on. Young people got better things to view, in every direction but basic cable.

    I bet the snow & heads on spikes was done in homage to GoT. They arent in competition with them as they dont air simultaneously, and it' s their last season. Also, chief showrunner supreme leader Gimple has used th eshow before to give homages to his favorite nerd shows. Eg, the Trash People were a nod to Star Trek. He basically uses ths show /franchise as his own toilet paper. I never want to see another character like Tara. Anywhere. Ever. But I didnt begrudge Tara's extra weight because the actress was pregnant and didnt deserve to lose a paycheck because of it. However I DO begrudge the casting of the two lead Highwaymen, who were sporting ginormous guts, with no valid excuse.

    Because she reminded you of a turtle? I guess I see it, a little?

    Tara, Enid, Osso Bucco and the Ocean Spray girl who is no longer on the show now?, always have their mouths gaping open. I don't know why, other than bad acting. But they all deserved their head on a spike.

    Well don't look to the writers. They can, but they wont. Because this way is much easier for them. Experiencing horrible trauma, especially the repeated horrific trauma that's displayed on this show, can destroy people. Can bleed them of all hope. I know this is all some bad writers' fantasy, but it's hard to watch characters, who are supposed to be human, go through torture/murder , over and over, and still have any human connection to them. It's too extreme, which makes them even more fantastical, and non-human characters. I liked the very human aspects of this show, when it was still good. Because when it was pretty good in depicting real human behavior and plots, you could ignore all the other stuff. I also think it's awful that they are leaning so hard on depicting beheadings for entertainment, when real beheading were happening and being broadcast to traumatize scores of people, not long ago. And probably are still happening, now. I know a lot of people who were legitimately traumatized by seeing those very real, very viral clips, not long ago, at all.

    'But she went down fighting! And that's how I want you all to remember her! She really knew how to tie a kerchief, that old broad. Didn't come off in the fight, nor when she was beheaded and kebabbed.' I laughed at her, too. And at Hipster Glasses Girl (who looked just as blank and lifeless as she was when she was alive). Things are really bad when you elicit a laugh in a scene of beheaded characters. All the heads. It was a great way for their ageist asses to get rid of the olds. Everyone knows this is a story for tweens, now. There was no way that Connie or Kelly was going down that fast. They have some hefty plot armor; for a while, at least. It's a common criticism now that POC, LGBT and physically challenged characters get killed off pretty quickly. I'm glad about that, if they can deliver more scenes like the one between them. It was well-acted, if not well-written. So Connie also has a dead child in her past. This is getting to be pretty cheap development for the women characters. Give me a break. Not every fucking woman has a kid in their past. They're using this crutch cheaply, and it's gross. It's also, again, too close to Michonne's character. They really think that they're going to toss the old characters and set up the new ones in the same mold. These writers need to be publicly ridiculed for being greedy hacks.
