@CatherineofAragon

I think that recklessness is exactly why Morgan is going to try to kill the saviors. He thinks he can prevent a war by killing the saviors himself. Unfortunately that's pretty damn reckless of Morgan. He hasn't encountered the Saviors at their worst. He's never encountered Neegan or Neegan's 2nd in command.

The Savior that is in charge of the meetings with the Kingdom is kind of interesting. He's an ass but it seems like his heart isn't in it. He's just trying to do his job and doesn't want any more crap from his own people than from the Kingdom.

I've also noticed that Neegan doesn't go to Hilltop or the Kingdom. I wonder if there's some significance to that.

@Cripplecreek

The mid-level guy who oversees the Kingdom's tributes seemed really regretful over Ben's death.  He didn't hesitate to get rid of the long-haired troublemaker, even told him he would kill him.  I wonder if he could be a possible ally in the future.  He must understand he's living under the thumb of a psycho who might throw him or anyone else into the fire on a whim.

I've kind of wondered about the lack of Negan's presence at those places, too.  I wonder if that's going to change.

I also think Jana's group "Scavengers"? is going to be a lot tougher than they appear. They're disciplined to the point of following orders given with a simple hand gesture and there appear to be a lot of them. I wonder if Neegan knows about them and avoids them?

Maybe Jana is Neegan's ex wife.  :silly:

Lmao, I'd like to think so, because she looks like she might be able to give him a run for his money.

Every time they go back to that group I start thinking I fell into an episode of Star Trek.

I think we're about to get the old Carol back.

I think what drove Morgan to abandon the pacifism was the realization that the situation was unnatural and causing people like Richard to attempt to sacrifice themselves and getting innocent people killed. I don't think he killed Richard out of anger at Richard so much as it was anger at the whole situation. I think he was angry at the realization that his pacifism wasn't going to save anyone so he intends to kill all the saviors on his own.

I actually have sympathy for Richard. I get it. He lost everything and every attempt to fight back was blocked as he was forced to kiss the Savior's asses again and again and again. I think this is what finally got through to Morgan. These people are being driven insane by repeatedly being forced to turn the other cheek.

I love the old Carol that is, as Negan says, a bad@ss.

She will be needed in the battle to come.  They all will.  I just hope Rosita and Sasha don't get themselves killed before that battle.

@XenaLee

I'm worried about them, too.  Rosita has become one of my favorite characters.

I thought tonight was dull.  All that planning to shoot Negan, and nothing happened.  Get to it and succeed or fail, but quit fooling around.  Too much talk and not enough action.

I thought this was a good episode.  I liked seeing Rosita and Sasha finally lay everything out between them.  Sasha saved Rosita's life by taking off on her own, but she also took away Rosita's chance to avenge Abraham.

If I never see Daryl cry again, I will be FINE with that.

Lol, you won't agree with what I posted.  I think they're going to really pour the gas on the fire for the next two eps.

It's a DRAMA...there are many things going on at once...Their plan was 2 fold...try for long distance or go in.  They were forced to go in and Sasha and Rosita came to closure...epic episode IMO.  All things leading up to who will and who will not fight against Saviors.

It was stupid to give up on "plan1" They had a perfect location. They saw that Negan did come out that door. After the first opportunity did not work out, they folded and went to "plan2". No discipline at all.

I don't buy it. He's a coward but a good man. He didn't want Rosalita to come and save him partly because he's a coward and partly because he cares about her more than anyone else. He doesn't want her getting hurt.

When it comes down to it, Eugene knows Neegan will eventually kill him. Everything he's told Neegan so far is a lie and will eventually be exposed. Eugene told Neegan he was a doctor and he turned around and killed his doctor. He's a psycho but Neegan isn't so stupid as to kill his only doctor if he didn't think he could replace him easily.

Well... at least it wasn't all about Rick and Michone getting busy by candlelight after a scavenging session.  Next week will be action-packed.  It is about to hit the fan.

I think they were forced to ditch "plan1" because of Eugene's call for more walkers to be found.  Mentioned checking the buildings or something over the radio.

Kind of foolish of the Saviors to leave high ground overlooking their compound unsecured in the first place.

They were never going with plan 1.  They had numerous clear shots at Eugene and never took one.

I was thinking the same thing...plus, the way Sasha and Rosita were flinging that rifle around in daylight, I'm surprised the reflection on the scope didn't give them away when they kept scoping the compound.

Lots of foolishness.  But the way things are being set up, it'll be interesting to see what transpires when the conflict begins.

@XenaLee

Two episodes left, right?  I think they're going to really bring it for those two shows.

Not to hijack the thread, but just as an aside, if anyone is looking for a good show to watch, I cannot recommend Bates Motel enough.  It's in its fifth and final season.  It's an amazing show, and the acting is stellar.
