Okay, I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but I was weak and started watching Fear The Walking Dead again.  And something incredible happened.  The last few episodes were really good---I mean seriously, edge of your seat good.  I hardly believe it.
When FTWD went after Christians and preppers, I signed off...waiting for TWD's return.

@SZonian

Really? What if the Christians they  went  after were a re-incarnation of the Jim Jones cult? Or a new Catholic Inquisition?

Although come to think of it,people with your mindset might cheer for a return of "dat ole tyme religion",where the cult officials know what is best for everyone,and enforces their laws with an iron fist and  the occasional pot of flaming oil.

@sneakypete

No, I initially did the same thing myself, but like I said, I was weak and went back and watched again.

Stop kneejerking every time Christianity is mentioned, Pete.  Deciding you're not going to listen to your religion being bashed has zero to do with a theocratic rule.  It's a silly comparison.

I will stop when the Bible-Thumpers stop preaching hellfire and damnation.

Well, sorry hellfire and damnation triggers you.  Hope you can manage.

@sneakypete...that's a stretch...the episode in question was quite overt and wasn't even straying into that kind of strawman.  Sorry if my position offends your sensibilities...but I am still free to choose which series I watch, correct?

Peace out.

You can speculate and it will still be a surprise.  I hope he bites it.

Hard to say. I have seen people,mostly women,who like to see men like Eugene hang around because they feel superior to them in courage,strength,and determination in aggressive situations.

After all,who enjoys being the "bottom Indian on the totem pole"?

Sorry, he's got two more seasons.

Season 9 is set to focus on Carl gradually taking over from an injured, probably  dying, Rick, while he (Carl) begins to show signs of madness.  Every indication is that he's turning into another Governor, possibly even eventually another Negan (who Carl killed, finally, in season 8).  In the series finale, Eugene starts babbling on about something, probably Trump, and Carl shots him in the knee.  After letting Eugene whine in pain for several seconds, Carl smiles broadly and shoots him in the head.  Twice.  And with that we know that everything is going to turn out okay in the end.

That's too bad. Carl is the one I have been looking forward to seeing him die. Arrogant little snot.

@sneakypete, @InHeavenThereIsNoBeer is kidding.  No one knows what's going to happen in season 8, much less 9.

Carl is my boy.  He's a stone cold killer, that one.

@aligncare, we won't spoil you.  I swear I can't wait until Negan dies.  Just the fact the his mouth will finally shut will be good enough for me.

He can't die until we have some Negan backstory. I'll bet he was an embittered high school gym teacher.  :finger:

Lol

I agree, I'd love to see an episode set aside for that.  And I'm one who normally doesn't like bottle eps.

Kinda like General Bethlehem in "The Postman". He was a copier repairman before the collapse of civilization.

Nothing should make a man happier than knowing his government couldn't care less about him.
I'd rather lose defending the constitution than win at its expense.

I have to say, that was some superior firepower going on in the premiere.  Rick taking a Polaroid of Negan....lol.

A couple of things: 

I want to know where they're getting all that ammo.

Jesus can die because he's an idiot and a dangerous liability.

Cool trick to bring back Morales.

Good question about the ammo...I don't see anyone reloading, just a whole lot of "A-Team" type of effects with a few finally getting hit towards the end of the episode.
I can suspend reality for a bit, but that sequence was just a bit too much.
I agree about Jesus, especially after the kitchen scene.  Jesus is putting the entire plan in jeopardy by not killing saviors.  They now have to worry about an enemy in their midst and take care of them.
Ezekiel acting like a fool (positivity) in regards to tactics, pressing on even though they aren't supposed to because they've lost the element of surprise...appears that in the trailer for next episode they get surrounded by some group..."Garbage Pail Kids" maybe?
