Both Maggie and Glenn knew what the world had come to, and they didn't have any foresight to protect themselves.  That is on them.  Yes, Negan is responsible for a lot of deaths, including Glenn and Abraham.    Still, if Maggie doesn't get pregnant, there would have been no need to rush to get to the Hilltop.

I don't have a problem with Nagen still being alive.  If he was going to die, TPTB should have scripted a much better fight scene.  That was pathetic.

I don't think we have seen the end of Dwight.  I hope not.  He is the one character that I had some interest in, and now he is gone, at least for now.

Did we ever find out how they knew they would be rushing to the other community? 

I've always found that the build-up to the ending, is always better than the actual ending. At least in things like Stephen King stories/horror or scifi stories, or just showdowns. The ultimate showdown ends up being a, "That's it?" ending.

I've yet to figure that out.  All of that manpower, all of those resources, all of that effort to...what, hold in place indefinitely until some day the crew *might* roll by?

I remember a theory going on back then that Enid was somehow a mole and had put something in the pickles she gave to Maggie knowing it would make her sick and require a trip to Hilltop.  It made sense, as far as this show goes anyway, but turned out not to be true.

It's one of the many things the writers chose to never clarify.

And speaking of not being clarified, did anyone catch TTD and Gimple and Kirkman dancing their way around the time line gap between TWD and FTWD?  They pretty much laughed and indicated they would engage in deliberate vagueness to explain it away on the show.  No surprise there, unfortunately.

Ricky G's mercy prevails over his wrath?  Tell that to the men you butchered who were stupid enough to save your useless ass.

I was SO angry when Rick slashed Negan's throat, Negan deserved a much more gruesome death than that.  Hint, when Father Pee charged at Negan I shouted for him to stick Lucille up Negan's ass.  So, needless to say, I was LIVID that Negan was saved.  And then even MORE livid that Rick was too incompetent to even properly slash Negan's throat, being that he can still talk.

I really thought Daryl was going to kill Dwight, following in Rick's "let's murder someone who saved us" footsteps, so I was relieved when he didn't.  I spent a long time wishing for Dwight's death, but I liked his redemption story, and when he told Daryl he was ready to die, talked about what a horrible person he is, and seemed genuinely remorseful...well, I think at that point someone broke into my house and started chopping onions.  I hated that Daryl sent him away, but at least he spared him.  Now go find Sherry!  I swear if he did find her, I would have been blubbering like an idiot.

I'm glad Eugene did the double cross.  Regardless of how he behaved, I couldn't help but like him.  As someone mentioned, when Eugene was taken, nobody made the effort to save him like they did Daryl, and while at the Sanctuary Eugene was given pickles, wine, and even a little bit of respect, so I sympathized with him and saw where he was coming from. 

I didn't think the scene at the end was about Maggie, Jesus, and Daryl being the big bads vs Rick and Michonne (not really sure why Michonne's name was dragged into that, unless it's because she never goes against Rick anymore), I thought the thing they still had to do was somehow murder Negan...but then I guess a part of that would be usurping Rick's authority as a leader.  I guess I'll find out.  I may get mad at the show, but I'm in until the end.

I don't think it's so much about what Carl wants, because Carl was wrong.  But where this show constantly fails is in character consistency and ignoring its own history and context.  Carl JUST died, like a day ago.  You'd think Maggie and Daryl would at least think, ya know, maybe Rick isn't thinking straight right this minute.   I mean, he's not talking to ghosts on the phone, sure, but he's obviously working some shit out.  Maybe don't freak the fuck out and just either convince him later or take care of it when he's not looking.  That's what friends and "brothers" do, they don't immediately plot against you.

I agree with this.  It didn't seem like there was much arguing or attempts to convince, browbeat, threaten, etc. Rick into allowing Neagan to be executed.  Jumping straight to "Let's overthrow (and kill?) Rick!" makes no sense at all for these characters we've known for so long.  

Even if Coral hadn't just been killed and Rick was just being an idiot for no particular reason, it wouldn't make sense for Maggie and Darryl to jump to wanting to violently oust Rick, without first expending many other measures to get what they wanted.

That is the problem with this show.  The characters give speeches instead of having conversations with one another.  That is why the characters can't transition from one thought/belief to another properly.  We can't see what is going on in their heads, they have to communicate  with other characters in order for us to know what they are thinking, doing and why.  I don't know why the writers can't understand that.  If they did, the writing would improve immensely.

I finally finished the ep today. Seems Rick's speech (letter?) to Coral was awfully similar to what he told him after his got his eye shot out. New world, blah blah. We'll see how long that lasts.

Yes! I've been thinking and saying that for so long. No one ever has anything that might be construed as a normal conversation between real people. Ever. People just take turns monologuing and this is not how human beings communicate, even in an apocalypse. There is no longer any way to relate to, or care about, any of the characters we see.

Probably because Michonne forcibly held Maggie back from finishing off Negan.

I totally forgot tonight was "finale" night for TWD.  Therefore, I only caught the last 30 minutes - sorry show, I'm just not that into you anymore.

Soooo... the Saviors got the jump on Camp Dinner Bell ... AGAIN.  "I AM everywhere!  Be vewwy afwaid!  We're comin' to get you, Barbra!"  Ah, yes that Negan monologing never gets old, does it?   Apparently, Eugene was not only manufacturing bullets, he also built more Saviors.  How is every Savior encounter a 10 to 1 ratio of baddies to Rick's guys?  Hasn't CDB killed like 500 Saviors over 2 seasons?  Not to mention thousands of windows!

Morgan is suddenly "out of here" again.  Funny how characters get to say "I just can't with you" and suddenly skip off by themselves.  C'mon, Morgan.  Either you're nuts or not.  Quit buggering off, only to join the group again and then bugger off once more.  If you're too crayzee to hang with us, then "bye Felicia!"  If you think CDB was a pain in the ass, wait til you have to listen to Madison blather on.  So, where does he go?  The dump. Mmmmkay.  So he kicks out Jadis/Anne so he can be with his feelings and thangs.  BUT... But... what about the helicopter?  Do we get to see/hear/know anything about that?  *Production handwaving intensifies*

What WAS with the random stained glass windows hanging from the tree?  And Rick's python shot through one of those windows and only managed to chip out a little piece of glass. Huh.  BTW, Rick.  Your gun only holds so many bullets...supposedly.  Oh, it was so Rick had a weapon against Negan's bat.  I'm somewhat disappointed that after Rick slashes Negan's throat, he didn't say "PSYCHE!".  BTW, how in the hell did Carl write those "eloquent" letters - hell, he only had at most a 3rd-grade education.

So, now CDB is going to imprison Negan for his crimes against humanity. Will little children get to mock him and throw rotten cantaloupes at him?  Will Alexandrians get to poke him with sticks?  Will Rick and co. have to empty his chamber pottie?  Will Negan be more like Otis the town drunk and get to let himself in and out of his cell when appropriate?  It's all too riveting!

When the camera was panning, I thought maybe they had amputated his arms and legs. Watching the communities get along is not a punishment for what he did. Having this psycho able-bodied and hatching new plans is not safe for anybody. The communities have already decided to live in peace. Rick showed mercy by accepting the truce. Mercy for Negan would be a clean shot to the brain. Why does anyone care that Negan may see the light eventually? This is bad, cliched writing 101.

Watching JDM fight is like watching a fight at a G.G. Allin concert.  His stance and reach is so awkward and puny.  I don’t believe this rickety old so and so could even take Eugene

Gah! You made me look up G.G. Allin because I had never heard of him before. Gross! Almost as bad as when I looked up the plot for The Human Centipede....really, JDM is not that bad. Nor is he that old. He's only 51! A veritable whippersnapper. Good thing, since he just had his second child with Hilaire Burton. We're not in Michael Douglas territory yet. I really do blame the directing of this show (as well as the writing). He really isn't that puny looking. It's just completely bizarre directorial choices.

That's what a lot of women think....but I totally agree, especially in relation to Stephen King books. I've tried reading a few and even if they have an intriguing concept, they always fall apart well before the end. It's as if he has a brilliant concept but hasn't thought ahead of how to tie it all together....and as he gets near finishing, he decides the hell with it, he'll just stick any old ending on it. I've found that in so many movies too, the villain is soooo bad and done so many bad things, but when he/she finally dies, it's as if the air has gone out of the movie and you think, is that all there is? With Negan, we didn't even get the satisfaction of thinking the end was as lame as the remainder of his story.

That would have been a great and completely appropriate ending to Negan and his lame ass story. My favourite version (that I am still hoping may come to pass in next season), is that everyone but Rick and Michonne rebel and decide to take out Negan communally. Just like Murder on the Orient Express, everyone takes a whack at Negan, and we'll never know who dealt the killing blow. So Rick can't retaliate, he'd have to kill all of them. It would be great if Michonne also participated, but it looks as if she is as far gone as Rick. Her walkie call to Negan was ridiculous.

OH, right. I remember thinking, "Why are those boxes on the street? Would people automatically discard cardboard boxes and paper products during an apocalypse?" I mean, they would have to think about folding them up and taking them out on the street to dump, right? You'd think people would have more pressing tasks at hand. But then of course I realized, "Plot device!' so Daryl could throw flaming papers. They couldn't just put a little pile of paper in the exact spot where he chose to stand. "I really need some paper... Oh, look - there's some right on the ground beside me!" That would look a mite too coincidental to believe, so they needed to have it strewn everywhere for no particular reason.

So... that's it? After two and half years of character development and having Tara begrudgingly come to trust him, the one character they actually managed to successfully redeem is forced to ride off into the sunset, never to be seen again? What the everloving fuck, show. (On the plus side, now he can finally go find Sherry and luckily never cross paths with these lunatics ever again, so... yay?)

I don't think any of us genuinely believe they would kill off Negan. Hell, I knew the fucker would live even after Rick sliced his throat. But as sure as hell wasn't expecting Rick to unilaterally make the decision of sparing him without at least consulting Maggie and Ezequiel? That was NOT his call to make and I will be 1000% behind Maggie, Jesus, and Daryl (has everybody suddenly forgot he wants him dead as much as Mags because he STILL blames himself for what happened to Glenn? He's been reaching Shane levels of frustration with Stupid Rick since the beginning of the season) if they had half a chance in hell of bringing down the Ricktatorship. Alas, this show will never have the balls to go there.

I like the pretty ex Savior. Dunno why people are pitting him against Jesus in the race for Maggie's affection since last I checked, Jesus was gay? And speaking of the gay, will Cyndie be a regular next season? Surely they wouldn't keep having Tara make eyes at her for naught?

Where was Carol???

@AngelaHunter, thanks for posting that Most Ridiculous Things video, I think they are hilarious!  I didn't know they were on YouTube, I always watch on Amazon, and Wrath wasn't up yet when you posted it.  Being able to laugh about the show with these videos is kinda therapeutic, it makes me forget about getting angry at certain developments.  Also, thanks to this, Rick will always be Ricky G to me :)

No, he wasn't, not until he starved 40lbs off his frame for a role in some minor TV mini-series. Big mistake. 50 is young, but that drastic weight loss - unlike in someone much younger - badly affected his face and he looks 65 without the beard. I'm sure it did his health no good either. His girlfriend/wife needs to start force-feeding him lard or something.

Stephen King is an absolute master of building up an incredibly compelling story for about 3/4 of a book. Interesting characters, intriguing premises, really good plots, all of it. He just has a problem sticking the landings sometimes.

I wanted Dwight to stick around, but then I thought that TPTB would find a way to make me hate him just like I hate everyone else.  So, perhaps it is best that he stays away, that is until if/when the writing improves.

Add Tara, Jesus and weepy FPP to that list (Lately I even want Daryl put on the hit list) and I might be good with it too. BUT, what will we have to endure to get there? Ricky G and the Funky Bunch going to Negan's room every day, lecturing him on the error of his ways, making speeches, reading him Coral's letters, launching into long, dreary parables and maybe even singing "Give Peace a Chance?"

I find his books, in general, too long and I love long books. A horror story like "Pet Sematary" loses its shock and the horror is diffused when it goes on too long, IMO, and there's too much repetition. "The Dark Half" is so original and interesting and truly scared me in many parts, but I swear by the end I never wanted to hear or read the sentence, "The sparrows are flying" again.

Probably that's the reason this show has gotten so dull. It's the same thing over and over. By the 4th or 5th time CDB runs into another strange/evil/sadistic/bizarre group and have to figure out how to live with/annihiliate/escape/subjugate them or whatever, it's merely "Ho hum. Here we go again. How many eps until this settlement is destroyed and the Bad Guys vanquished?" I guess to combat that, we get atrocities like people living in a garbage dump, doing crafts in the nude and speaking like they were raised with Tarzan in the forest.

Why the need for the big mutiny planning by Maggie? Why can't she just walk into Negan's private room and blow his brains out? What are  his protectors - Rick and Michonne - going to do? Kill her? Drive her out in the middle of nowhere and dump her? Rick doesn't think she's justified in killing ol' BigMouth? This is so fucking stupid I almost like it.

You're discussing something that could happen in the future and we still don't know how that will happen ! 

Maggie is the leather of hilltop now and Rick Alexandria, we are talking on two communities and not small group as in the past. Rick will keep Negan under his protection in cell because it obvious that many people would like to kill him.

I meant she could have done right in the ep, at the end when Rick and Michonne are playing tag-team speeches: "Your days of tyranny and opression are ended, Negan. No more will you-" and then Maggie bursts in and shoots him right in the head, turns, blows the smoke from her gun barrel and strides out, past the dumfounded Rick and Michonne, muttering, "Theer. Ah took keer of it." I might even like her if she did that.

You mean like Daryl did with Morales less than six episodes ago? Or Carol did with Lizzie? Or Rick did with the cop who was slowly walking away from him near Grady? Or Carol tried to do with the captured Wolf? Or Rick did to Jessie's husband? Or all of them did to the sleeping saviors at the outpost?

That would be totally unprecedented, uncalled for, and out of character! How dare you even suggest it?!? 

(God these writers suck.  I'd have cheered on Maggie too.  If they'd done it your way, our conflict next season could be the same break between them but it's about Maggie having defied Rick, rather than some stupid plot against him.  Again, god these writers suck.)

There is just something about Maggie that bugs me.  It is like the death of Glenn is far more important than every other person that Nagen has killed.  I just don't get that.  I don't want her to get her revenge.   I just want her to go away, but it appears that I can't have nice things.  Given her reaction at the end of this episode, it appears that she is "all in" on killing Nagen.  I just hope that with a new showrunner, that they don't go down the path of having Maggie trying to seek her revenge for an entire season.  That is, if the actress is still part of the show.  I can't handle a season, if it becomes all about Maggie.

"The Dark Half" is so original and interesting and truly scared me in many parts, but I swear by the end I never wanted to hear or read the sentence, "The sparrows are flying" again.

I'm trying to figure out why I agree with you while counting "The Stand" and "Under the Dome" as two of my top three SK novels ("The Stand" is actually one of my favorite novels, period).

Well I was one who speculated about the pretty ex Savior vying for Maggie's affection (I hope not because I think he can do better, even in the ZA) but I must have missed the part where Jesus said he was gay.

It was one of those blink and you'll miss it things that was mentioned in one of the many interminable scenes of Jesus cheerleading Maggie as the leader of Hilltop over Gregory from last season.  He was talking about having never had a real home before because he'd mostly bounced around group homes as a kid and mentioned he'd had boyfriends.  I missed it too until I saw people discussing it elsewhere on social media the next day.  This is seriously it.

I meant she could have done right in the ep, at the end when Rick and Michonne are playing tag-team speeches: "Your days of tyranny and opression are ended, Negan. No more will you-" and then Maggie bursts in and shoots him right in the head, turns, blows the smoke from her gun barrel and strides out, past the dumfounded Rick and Michonne, muttering, "Theer. Ah took keer of it." I might even like her if she did that.

Right after she told Neegan - juster look a these flowers

There is just something about Maggie that bugs me.  It is like the death of Glenn is far more important than every other person that Nagen has killed.  I just don't get that.  I don't want her to get her revenge.   I just want her to go away, but it appears that I can't have nice things.  Given her reaction at the end of this episode, it appears that she is "all in" on killing Nagen.  I just hope that with a new showrunner, that they don't go down the path of having Maggie trying to seek her revenge for an entire season.  That is, if the actress is still part of the show.  I can't handle a season, if it becomes all about Maggie.

Its probably just her 16th trimester pregnancy hormones

Or Rick did with the cop who was slowly walking away from him near Grady? 

And the cop who was lying on the ground, hands tied, after Ricky hit him with the car. "Shut up." Ricky is all about compassion and mercy, except when he's on a killing spree and everyone else better be on board with whatever kick he's on at the moment. "Yeah, I tricked and murdered in cold blood the Savior who helped me in the bar. So? I just wanted to. Now I'm saying no one harms Negan. What??"

"Misery" is one my all-time favorites. I love Steven King and the two books I mentioned I DID love until probably the last 1/3 or 1/4 when I started saying, "Yeah, we already read all about that ("Oz, the Gweat and Tewwible" etc) many times." I didn't stop reading and did enjoy them but the pleasure fizzled a little.

I don't know why that was brought up. What does it matter if anyone here is gay, straight, bi, into BDSM or pony play? No one is ever allowed to put any of it into practice anyway.

The older I get, the more I have to look up words at urban dictionary.  That can't be good.

Not that it matters, but I wonder if he knows she is pregnant?

If we're talking about the same "pretty" ex Savior, I would have thought he had eyes for Tara.  Personally I like Tara better, and it is not just because Maggie's accent is driving me nuts.  There are plenty of other reasons why Maggie annoys me.

Where is Negan?  Is he still at the Hilltop?

I know Oceanside joined the fight against Negan, but I didn't see Aaron.  Was he there to see it happen?

I don't think Gregory was in this episode either.  There was a statement made that he was left inside the building at the Hilltop.

But Tara is a lesbian, right?  So the pretty ex Savior just needs to keep on looking, lol.

Wasn't he leading the Oceanside Fireball brigade? I know I missed a lot in this ep.

I believe he's referred to as "FacePubes" in the YT vid, "The Most Ridiculous Things... " How did he keep that jawline beard-thing so perfectly trimmed during his incarceration? But, yeah - how is he ever going to get hooked up? Find out next season!

I thought I was pretty shockproof until I started looking up stuff. Sometimes ignorance is best.

Yeah, she is.  I forgot about that.  I can't remember the last time anyone was intimate on this show.  I need a score card containing every characters social life.

Tara ought to park her ass over at Oceanside to see if there are any takers.

I wasn't paying that much attention.  There were so many characters on the screen at one time that I don't think I could pick any of them out of a line up.

He was there, but only for a second.

If I were an Oceansider I'd pass, Tara's ZA girlfriends don't do so great!

No, he wasn't, not until he starved 40lbs off his frame for a role in some minor TV mini-series. Big mistake. 50 is young, but that drastic weight loss - unlike in someone much younger - badly affected his face and he looks 65 without the beard. I'm sure it did his health no good either. His girlfriend/wife needs to start force-feeding him lard or something.

Ahh. I did notice that he looked a lot worse, and come to think of it, he wasn't looking so hot on The Good Wife either. It's true, losing major weight at midlife can really age you. Good thing that isn't happening to me....

Where did Carol and Ezekial get the horses they rode into the Kingdom on? Have they always had horses? Did they ride them over to the Hilltop then leave them there for the battle, then take them back to the Kingdom?

I am pretty sure the horses live in the old garbage dump, in an IKEA stable. It's behind the showers, so nobody will ever find them, except for Jerry of course.

Because IRL we as a society associate rapid midlife weight loss with wasting sickness.

In JDM's case, he said he starved himself deliberately, eating only one can of tuna per day. I've had cats who wouldn't be satisfied with that. Many actors doing terrible things to their bodies - starv ing themselves or feeding themselves into obesity with junk food -  for "authenticity" for some movie role (Hello, Christian Bale) and I think it's a completely insane choice.

Well, possibly, but with JDM he went from an extremely attractive man that could play romantic leads with ease, into more of a character actor. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I think it's taken away some of his choices. He just doesn't look good any more.

I found the link. Yes, it sounds terribly unhealthy. The article has two photos - before and after. Such a shocking difference! Admittedly, some years passed in between the two roles, but it does give non JDM fans a chance to see what he used to look like, and part of the reason some of us were excited when we learned of his casting on TWD.

I'm not convinced Dwight is gone from the show.

Maybe he will end up in Rick's camp (maybe they'll rebuild Alexandria), and that will just add more fuel for Daryl's unhappiness with Rick.
