I thought it was Eugene.

Awful episode that just drags.

With the crossbow? I thought Darryl was too obvious of a choice. Would he have made it to them so quickly?

I thought maybe it was that Captain Burnt Face guy who's obsessed with Daryl, I'm pretty sure he took Daryl's original crossbow.

The last 90 seconds was the only bit that was vaguely interesting. Hope most of the characters die at the end of the season.

wow, that's quite possibly a new low, even for TWD.

the only vaguely fun bit was simon's eyebrow acting.  really could not care less about any of the characters tediously going through their pained motions (and a pained motion is a pretty good description of the episode...)

best line was definitely "we'll never get another shot.  [dramatic pause] because they'll kill us!" :lmao

as an aside, after the lennie james masterclass last week, i went and watched the first season of 'line of duty' in the hope of seeing him working with a better script and cast - and yet once again he was literally the only good thing in it.

He is so frustrated that he goes and starts kicking empty boxes on the street. And surprisingly, the missing melon is under one of those boxes. The yellow one, to be precise. He immediately connects the dots and decides to avenge.

Weren't the melons always meant to be found like that though..?

Thank God there's more people who feel the same about that episode/this season. I'm wary of coming in here and ranting every week but I really think this show has gone to complete shit.

When it's good I will say it but it hasn't been good since episode 1 of this season I think. The farm season was better.

They had a character in Negan who they could have done so much more with. This season needed more Rick v Negan, the more Negan the better! If they kill him off at the end of the season then it is a tragedy.

It all started off so well with the bat and went shitter and shitter each week

There's what..2 episodes left now? I feel like nothing has happened, seriously struggling to remember anything of substance this season bar the opening episode. I can go back to every other season and think of loads of moments of genuine interest, intrigue and excitement, that has all evaporated.

Agreed. Upinsmoke more or less said what I was thinking last night too.

Seriously, what in the absolute fuck are the writers even thinking about here? It's terrible. I fast forwarded the moment where the two idiots had a heart-to-heart about Abraham and all. I literally couldn't give a fuck about that thread because, well, it was hardly developed to begin with. A couple of episodes back, the two sort of looked at each other and the other tried to be mates, only for Rosita to give the cold shoulder, and I had to jog my memory a bit to think what that was all about. The major problem this show has is trying to convince the viewer into suddenly giving a shit about characters that you previously didn't give a shit about because of their lack of screen time and development. Oh, and for fuck sake, someone put a bullet in Eugene. For the love of Christ, he is the most useless, annoying bastard in any TV show that I've watched. I mean, seriously, what the fuck is the point of him? He does nothing but gurn and pull faces that would make Phil Jones enviable. If Rosita had have put a bullet in his mullet, I'd have seriously laughed and applauded. That would have been great, but alas. Again, the writers of the TV show have found a way of taking a character from the comic and completely fucking it up. He's actually a caricature of his comic book self, and that says something for the fact that he's based off a comic book character.

Another thing I will say in criticism is that the editing was terrible. Does whoever directed and edited that episode not have any sense of time?

 Just baffling shit. Awful.

This show has already been renewed. It had better reinvent itself and improve big time for the next series, otherwise it's viewing numbers will fall off a cliff.

I seem to remember the actor who plays Rick (Andrew Lincon?) giving it loads before the season started about how this was going to be the biggest and best season yet. We wouldn't believe what what is store, etc.

To be fair, what did you expect him to say? He's probably going to say the same before the start of next season too.

It's a pity because we had a terrific first episode and barely a memorable one after that.

they're on about 100 more episodes apparently... so that's maybe 15 good episodes, 20 OK episodes, and the rest talking about knots or something similar.

So much God damn filler. It honestly blows my mind that people try to talk about this show next to things like Sopranos, Breaking Bad or even the likes of Game of Thrones. The show has great episodes, but it's just watered down by AMC being so money hungry that every season is just needlessly dragged out and you have to sit between 2-5 needless one story episodes between each exciting one.

Even if they kill Negan, do Rosita and Sasha not think Trevor from GTA and the other guys won't go and slaughter Alexandria and the Hilltop in return? Dumb shit. And I still don't understand WHY they told the Saviours that Maggie was dead. What did it accomplish? All it does is needlessly puts them all in danger if they find out they lied to them.

The season had such an awesome opener but it's been such a slog since then. From awful characters, shoddy CGI, crap dialogue, weak acting. The show would be better if it was just Rick, Daryl, Carol, KORALL, Negan, Dwight, Priest, Jesus and a bunch of red shirts who get eaten by zombies

I've given up.  At the end of the last series I decided I wasn't going to watch it anymore.  Due to my shit memory I forgot and began watching this series.  This series hasn't really bothered me too much, some things I liked and kept me interested.  For some reason though after watching the first 5 minutes of last nights episode, I turned it off.  All the smiles and cheesy music during their fighting drills made cringe and ask myself what the hell am I doing watching this.  I honestly feared I was going to witness someone skipping down a prairie.  Episode now deleted as well as the series link.  I feel a burden has been lifted :)

Well, you would learn that one pretty quickly, I reckon. What's more jarring is that Maggie is somehow qualified to teach combat techniques with a knife like she had Navy Seal training for 10 years. That montage at the start was something straight out of a cheesy 80's action flick starring Chuck Norris.

That absolutely killed me. 5 minutes of torture. No one talking and them practising with their shitty weapons.

That's the one bit I can explain, it looked likely that Negan was gonna take Maggie as another wife so they lied about her death to keep her away. Not a great plan but there wasn't much of an alternative.

Is it a budget issue?

Shite CGI, crappy filler episodes then the occasional bigger budget episode which is pretty good?

If the news about 100 more episodes is true I can see them keeping Negan on for at least another series, so no doubt more of the same crap.

Best thing (only good thing) about that episode (the whole show) is Trevor from GTA. Just get rid of Negan and make him the main baddy.

So Rick's Grand Attack Plan (tm) will have to be set up in just one episode before the Season Finale. I'm dubious.

Coz what we needed right now was a relationship-filler episode with lots of soul-searching about Rosita and Sacha's dead EX.

Even though I haven't seen or heard anything, we all already know what the next episode will be about. It'll be another shitfest where Rick finds out about those women that had all the guns (remember them?) from whatsherface, and off they all go on a jolly fine roadtrip where 40 minutes are spent trying to convince the nags to give up their weapons. Can't wait.
