It was convenient that Daryl went through the one open area of the wall that wasn't framed properly.  Aren't studs normally 16 inches on center?

If only Daryl had stood up suddenly and faced Beta with a serious look on his face. "Damn it, we have mold."

In response, Beta would have said, "There goes the budget."

I really wanted to hear Beta's non-whisper voice, and for it to be really funny and non-menacing.

I did think it was interesting that unlike every other group, they celebrate when one of their members turns.

Daryl should have kept the fight to where it suited his group the best, and that is out in the open and at stringed weapon range, yet we all know the show wants something more exciting, hence the breaking down walls, hand to hand switchblade fight that we got.

I don't know what I'm missing here, I just don't understand why there had to be a fight at all. They escaped with Lydia. They were far ahead of anyone following them. It's not like they HAD to stop and make a stand. They could have just gone back to Hilltop or wherever. And if Alpha and her friends came looking they could just say "She's not here." How would they prove otherwise? They could even let them in to search. Just hide Lydia and Henry somewhere for the duration.

What don't I get here?

Here's what I've got.  Daryl is sure that if they go to Hilltop it will be overrun.  He says something about the Whisperers are only a few and stay in the middle of the herd I think?  So it seems he is thinking that they will be tracked back to Hilltop and the zombies will overrun Hilltop, much the same as when Daryl led the group into the Whisperers for the rescue.   Daryl assumes that anyone who makes it up the stairs will be a Whisperer that they can pick off via the chokepoints; Whisperers dead, zombies downstairs and can be distracted away for the escape (which is what happens).

The whole zombie climbing stairs thing is inconsistent because they sure were able to when Merle was trapped on the roof, way back when.  One of the whisperers actually brings a group of zombies up the stairs in this ep, unless that was a whisperer group.  Apparently if you are wearing a zombie skin, you can shuffle any old way and they will follow you?  When Beta recognizes the trap, one of the others says that zombies can't climb over the barricade.

We're not really given a good idea of how many zombies there are but I can appreciate Daryl not wanting to bring an actual threat back to Hilltop.  It would help if the group of zombies/whisperers appeared larger and more threatening.  He seems to think that if they kill all of the Whisperers and esp Beta, maybe the rest won't know where to track them to?

As for the rest of it, I don't know how long the Highwaymen will be around but I appreciate that they were bought off rather than killed. 

I basically enjoyed this one, even though Henry is dippy.

Highway Men are a joke. Where did they get their costumes from, West World? Love Connie the most from her group (followed closely by Magna). And as my luck goes, Connie's probably next to die. 🙂

I enjoyed this ep; there were a couple of nice turns to it.

1. Connie and Daryl. Honestly I don't see them as a couple. In fact, when he kind of guy-punched her shoulder in approval, my immediate thought was, "Awww, Daryl found a new Rick." I don't mean that in a sarcastic way, either. I mean like a possible best friend, trusted battle partner, just relax and hang out kind of relationship.

2. Dog followed Connie instead of Daryl, and he actually sputtered. Heh.

3. The Highwaymen turned out to be a fun addition to the Kingdom instead of ohdeargodanotherenemy.

4. Carol's cool, smiling assertion that the Highwaymen weren't actually Jed's group of Saviors under another name.

5. Ozzy(?), the head Highwayman twice eyeing Tara and Tara's kind of horrified look in response. Ha! I got an immediate Tormund/Brienne vibe from that. Loved it.

I really am liking this back half much more than I thought I would. Kudos to Kang. (Which has just become my new fake band name.)

How did fat people stay fat during the zombie apocalypse? Food was scarce and there's so much running involved.

Well...  You take some potatoes that you submerge  in vegetal oil and you have french fries,  then you take some tomatoes to make ketchup, eat that every day and you're all good.

I know because  I am on a diet right now and every time that I open the freezer or that I look at the bag of potatoes getting old I have the answer to your question.

Still they could do as I am doing and make soup,  They will multiply their ressources and get in better shape at the same time.

It's gratifying to see that Daryl has never bought into Rick's peace, love, and benevolence bullshit.  If he had, instead of slaughtering that guy behind the sheet, he would have tried to reason with him,  show him the error of his ways and maybe even broken a few windows.

He did leave the scary monster alive in the well of the elevator.  Same as Rick did with Negan a couple of times.

That’s the second show in a row that I’ve enjoyed, a little bit of Jerry humour, a little bit of action, the story moving along albeit slowly, it’s making me feel hopeful for the future.

It’s also the second show in a row that has been spoiled by the ever present ‘ridiculous’ scene. Last week it was the unit of stealthy, silent commandos Daryl managed to round up to hit the Whisperer camp, this time, probably the most awful scene that I’ve ever watched on the show, the introduction to Black Bart and his gang of desperados.

 I think he summed the whole thing up perfectly with his response to Carol “seriously”?

Just because they didn’t kill Jerry or Diane they’re trusted enough to walk around the community, I don’t know if this bunch are in the comics but I wonder if Bart is going to become Kingdom’s ‘loveable rogue’, or whether theyve been brought in to provide some red shirts for Elpha & Co.

Except for stealing a sword they have done nothing wrong,  so I am glad that they are onboard.

And that underscores the problem with this show. Think about it: If anyone from Oceanside showed up for the fair, would anyone in the viewing audience even know who it is??? They'd have to be wearing name tags that we could see at home.

If they go to the fare I could see them breeding with the new cowboy gang.  A little positiveness in the show is very welcome for me.

Only a Whisperer could climb over the barricades, so the plan was to kill every Whisperer that made it to the upper floor, Daryl was a little over confident about the numbers they faced

They travel in a herd - but there’s only like five or six of them in the middle, right?” - Daryl

Actually, Daryl was right on the money; there were six Whisperers in the herd.  Remember Beta’s instructions to the black-haired Whisperer when they were on the building’s ground floor...

North stairwell.  Take half.  Leave them no way out.

...immediately after which, Beta headed to the other stairwell with two other Whisperers - presumably constituting the other half of their hunting party.  

So the Whisperer contingent was six total - although I wouldn’t fault you for counting Beta as two.  🙂

Quote

and in reality Bayda could and should have killed Daryl.

Would coulda shoulda!  😄

Actually, I thought that fight was pretty balanced.  Beta definitely had advantages in reach and brute strength, but Daryl had the advantage of better intelligence on the immediate environment.

In houses, yes; in office buildings, though...?  It depends - primarily, on how cheap the building management thinks they can get away with.  General rule of thumb for non-load-bearing interior office walls is usually maximum 24” between stud centers - but in my younger days I frequently cut holes in office drywall for new computer cable drops, and more than once I found walls which were little more than a single square aluminum frame supporting an entire 4’x8’ sheet of drywall at its edges, with no intervening studs.  Like I said - however cheap they can get away with. 😉

Why didn’t Lydia identity Beta so Daryl could take him right out?  Why not pick off as many as they could before they got inside? Or how about get them inside, lock the door and burn that shit down?  Carol would.

But there should be an infestation of cats happening. They’re fast and smart enough to escape zombies. Maybe they’re all stuck up in trees and don’t know how to get back down. 🤔

It is bad enough when dogs, horses, and other animals get eaten, the last thing I want to see are cats getting eaten.  Sure, cats are fast and agile, but that didn't help Shiva.

The Whisperers don't seem like a trustworthy lot.   I think they would destroy Hilltop no matter what Tara might tell them.  Just because Lydia wasn't there, there is no reason why Alpha wouldn't assume that Tara would know where Lydia was being kept.

Plus, Daryl has just led the walkers to feed on some of the Whisperers, so she might want revenge just for that.

Yes, he did leave scary Chewbacca without making sure he was dead and should have known better. Would have been easy for him to zing a bolt into Chewwy's noggin, but y'know - plot and Opie's contract. Daryl may have had more motivation to make sure the monster was not merely, but most sincerely dead had he watched him beating Glenn and Abe to death and been tortured by him.

I bet Daryl wouldn't have thumped Negan a couple times with the handle of a bat, then dived out the window and left Negan with nothing more than a few bruises.

I liked that Daryl has never had a love interest, because I hate when shows feel the need to pair people up. I never saw romantic chemistry between him and Carol. I liked that they could have such a close platonic relationship, with out it having to turn into something else. But saying that... at this point in the show, I wouldn't mind if Daryl and Connie become a thing. I don't get the conversations about their ages. The actress is going to be 41 next month. She's hardly a young millenial. She's smart and brave and strong-willed. Hopefully she teaches Daryl some ASL. The note writing does slow things down a bit.

You'd think ASL would be an invaluable thing to know in the ZA, since you can communicate silently (without waiting for notes to be written.)   I'm glad so many others enjoyed this episode, usually this forum is just people slamming the show (while continuing to watch.)  I definitely enjoyed it and I've been enjoying the more lighthearted moments being threaded throughout these past episodes (the music distracting the zombies last episode and the movie bartering this one.)  I love watching them actually begin to rebuild civilization.  There's only so much "surviving" people want to watch.  Eventually we want to see how people start living.

I don't think there is anything wrong with being critical of some aspects of any series.

Viewers are viewers whether some hate watch or not.   Viewers  (even hate watchers) contribute to the ratings of television series.  Good ratings are what keep this and other series on the air.

It's hard to believe that Daryl Fucking Dixon WOULDN'T have put a bolt in Beta, if only just for kicks.

I agree with those that think that knowledge of ASL would be very useful.  The Whisperers wouldn't have to whisper so much if they knew sign language.

A lot of people view the differently-abled as weak and helpless and a burden.  One look at Connie would show that wasn't true.   And anyone who knows anything about the actress who plays Connie would know that she isn't weak and helpless either.  She's better than most of the actors on TWD who have full use of their faculties.   How many of them have Tony-awards?

Also, on a totally unrelated note, I’m sick of Georgia. That’s right, I said it. When the plot stinks, at least having some nice scenery that varies would be nice. Zombies in snow would be cool. They’d probably be better preserved too. Heck, stick them in Yosemite and push zombies off Half Dome. Much more entertaining. 

Aren't they supposed to be in Virginia? There are actual seasons there. There would be snow. Maybe I missed it when they went back to the South.......... Hell, I don't know any more

We're not really given a good idea of how many zombies there are but I can appreciate Daryl not wanting to bring an actual threat back to Hilltop.  It would help if the group of zombies/whisperers appeared larger and more threatening.  He seems to think that if they kill all of the Whisperers and esp Beta, maybe the rest won't know where to track them to?

Wouldn't Alpha assume Daryl, Henry and Lydia have gone back to Hilltop anyway, regardless of whether they go there or not? I don't see how not going back to Hilltop prevents Alpha from attacking it. They've drawn a line in the sand regardless of where they head, and it's not as if Alpha knows they're somewhere else.

Exactly. I guess this whole grandstanding thing in the abandoned building made sense to a lot of the audience but it went right over my head. The only reason for it I could see was because the writers wanted some kind of cool fight scene.

I have no idea if the show is planning on a Daryl-Connie pairing or if people are seeing what they want to see, which is how a lot of ships are born.  I know the actor has been vocal over the years about not wanting Daryl paired off and playing the character almost asexually, something I've found amusing given how the show has promoted him as the least sexy "sex symbol" ever with his sleeveless leather vests and series of implausibly gassed up bad boy motorcycles.  While I don't really care one way or the other because I really don't have any vested interest in any possible romantic inclinations of a guy who has been living in a tent in the woods the past six years, I concede it's been something of a novelty watching one of the bigger stars of such a long running show never show the slightest undisputed inkling of an interest in that direction toward anyone.   I am curious to see whether the show continues down that road with him now that's he's the top billed "lead character."

Actually I do understand it.  As a fan of Supernatural and  Justified any attempt to  hook up the leading men led to a massive hazing of the actresses/characters they were being paired up with.  Which is a real problem and very unfortunate.  All of their characters ended up being alone in the love department.

I don't see Norman as being in the same league as Jensen, Jared or Timothy - but others do.

I'm especially critical when I see (although usually, I try to avoid listening to anyone connected with the show) someone like e.g., Kang, beaming and raving about how wonderful and clever it was to put those dogs after Negan. All I can think is: Are you really that stupid, or do you think WE are? It's hard not to be personally insulted by dumbass drivel like this.

"Love to hate" is rather enjoyable. I binge-watched "Aftermath" and adored hating it. I cannot stand the sight of Henry and there's no love there at all. Every word he says, everything he does is like nails on a chalkboard for me. 

This show, with its usual historical incompetence of having no clue how to sustain any momentum at all, just takes yet another nosedive when we leave whatever action may be taking place and go to, "Meanwhile, back with Henry the Lovelorn Brat" and everything comes to a screeching, coma-inducing halt. Maybe also that he's being rammed down our throats as "Our Replacement Carl - don'tcha love him?" fuels the hatred. I'm not sure.

Now that is interesting. Do female fans think if a fictional character remains unattached, he'll come looking for them? I must find a psychological study of the bizarre workings of fandoms because that's kind of fascinating. My only objection to Daryl hooking up is I will call absolute bullshit if we don't see him wash before gettin' it on. Not even an apocalypse would induce any woman to be intimate with someone who probably hasn't even washed his balls in years.  If Daryl doesn't wash, we riot.

A glow in the dark pen would make much more sense.  They have her writing notes when they can be easily seen.  What happens when it is dark out with no lighting?

Actually I do understand it.  As a fan of Supernatural and  Justified any attempt to  hook up the leading men led to a massive hazing of the actresses/characters they were being paired up with.  Which is a real problem and very unfortunate.  All of their characters ended up being alone in the love department.

I don't see Norman as being in the same league as Jensen, Jared or Timothy - but others do.

The Rosita love triangle with Eugene as a possible side piece is enough of a reason not to have Daryl hook up with anyone.   I am not a fan of romantic angsty shit.  That Rosita romantic shit is a horrible story line.

I agree - we need more cats!  The thought of Shiva, or swift and easily spooked horses, for that matter, not being able to elude zombies is ridiculous.

agree. as a cat owner many times over - cats are NOTORIOUS natural predators. cats would be the first to find the safe place to sleep and relax. a zombie is way less dexterous than a mouse, but a cat would totally be in charge in a cat/mouse situation. unless you had a giant herd of zombies dropped from a cat OUT of earshot, a zombie taking a feline is OUT of the question. ditto dogs for that matter, tho dogs being more forgiving MIGHT give a zombie a chance to friend-pet it.

Now that is interesting. Do female fans think if a fictional character remains unattached, he'll come looking for them? I must find a psychological study of the bizarre workings of fandoms because that's kind of fascinating. My only objection to Daryl hooking up is I will call absolute bullshit if we don't see him wash before gettin' it on. Not even an apocalypse would induce any woman to be intimate with someone who probably hasn't even washed his balls in years.  If Daryl doesn't wash, we riot.

The short, sad answer is YES, there are fans out there that think if Daryl stays single, they have a chance.  It's one of the reasons Meagan Markle gets so much hate.  There are women out there that think a bi-racial, AMERICAN TV actress stole their prince.

I also think the shower is a must-have.  I'm surprised Dog puts up with Daryl's stank ass.  The actress who plays Connie said the first intimate scene between Connie and Daryl would have to be a shower scene.  And he's going to have to burn those clothes too.

I just realized that I don’t miss Maggie one bit.  

I miss her a lot.  I wanted to see Maggie and Michonne work out their issues.  We rarely get female bonding scenes and the show is the worse for it.

I have a soft spot for Tara.  I don't know why.  Maybe it is because she is so disliked.

I am still waiting to see if Heath ever comes back.

I don't mind Tara.. She's not great, but not awful either, just kinda keeping the status quo. She seems competent, as opposed to Maggie who got queen status and decided her way or the only way attitude.
