    She has been full of remorse since awhile ago when she killed that wolf guy prisoner who saved the doc lady. Remember how she handled that? Then baked a cookie for the dead kid and kissed that one guy. She went soft a few episodes ago. It's been done so many times in this show where a tough character catches feelings and they kill them off shortly thereafter. Not saying Carol is on the way out but it's either that or her softness gets someone else killed to make her hard again. Honestly it seems like the writers are lining people up to be killed just so people can't guess who is actually going to get the axe.

    Carol got soft. Abraham wants to die so he can see his kids and wife agin. Glen is gonna have a kid but he's still killing people in their sleep. Maggie is pregnant and doesn't want to fight anymore.

    The last few episodes were really good, but feel like the next couple are going to be filler. I'm looking forward to the finale, but getting sick of hearing how CRAZY it's going to be :roll:

    ^ Agreed on sick of hearing how crazy it will be. Yadda yadda yadda we all know:

    Negan will be introduced and the only thing no one knows is who's head he's going to bash in. Glenn in the comics and it's been foreshadowed for a few seasons now but I'm hoping it will be Daryl. AMC better not pull some shit where you see a bat in the air and a bunch of the gang tied up and then you need to wait 6 months to find out what happened. That will definitely make me want to do the same to the executives over there. Last season's finale sucked!

    Well some B side character took Abraham's fate so no telling who gets to step up to Glenn's plate. It's such an odd gimmick. The whole who is going to die thing. Feels like people watch just to find that out and the slowly paced story and mostly repetitive dialog doesn't matter to anyone because someone is going to die. Though every single time I feel bored with the show I see a commercial for that horrid spin-off show Fear The Walking Dead and it reminds me that things could be so much worse. Whatever though. Everything is just filler until Ash vs Evil Dead comes back.

    The first 5 minutes aside, I didn't mind that episode. The dialogue btw Abraham and Eugene was hysterical. At least they started:

    Thinning the herd. Denise would not have been my first choice but its a start. That whole Carol leaving thing was kind of dumb. It's a red herring for her saving the day next season for sure (just like Terminus).

    Actually taking stock of who's left:

    Denise is right up there with Tara, Maggie, Morgan for prime "die already will you?" candidates. So yes happy about the arrow to the head/eye

    Yes indeed. I hope Abraham lives, his dialogue and Eugene's are some of the few things I enjoy about the show. Besides, he's finally getting to be with someone he wants (Sasha). I think I'm OK with Glenn getting his head bashed in now. At first I was like Nooooo! Original Atlanta crew, not many left- and I loved Glenn's comic relief for the first few seasons. But I hate Maggie and ever since Glenn has been with her they've become this smarmy self righteous couple and do the most soapbox speeches on the show. Those are the people I want to die the most.

    Say, if a pregnant lady were to loose her baby in this apocalypse, could he zombie-out like a Alien ? :D
    Not really a spoiler ^

    The virus is both airborne, and spread by blood. Pretty much guarantees the baby is infected in the womb no? So if it died before birth it most likely would be a zombie. With no teeth and little baby hands though, I doubt it could Alien itself out.

    Rick's wife had a conversation about that a few seasons ago. She was scared of that exact same thing. I don't think a baby could do that since it doesn't have teeth or anything but zombies in this show are ridiculously strong so maybe? They do rip people apart like they are made of wet tissue paper.

    How to watch season 6 episode 15 (and what's happening in the finale- you are warned):

    Skip the first 10 minutes. If you downloaded on iTunes just fast forward you are not missing anything but sappy boring dialogue (basic premise Carol runs away by herself and Daryl is seeking revenge on Dwayne- so they both leave at different times thus we are not stuck in Alexandria the whole episode). If you tune in just go make yourself coffee or a sammy -you have time! First action is at 13:00 minutes in. Yeah that car wasn't just going to pass on by as Carol drives the opposite way. Then the dumb dialogue after the fact that they shoot Carol's tires out and her plea 'to not hurt her' by some Captain Obvious red shirt- "Why does everyone always assume the worst?" Ummmm I don't know maybe because 99.9% of strangers try to hurt you and you just shot my tires out? The rest of the episode switches btw the same meaningful boring WD dialogue about how ppl change and people getting captured.

    I also hear next week is going to end with Negan bashing a character's head in like the comic BUT you will only see it from the perspective of the victim and you won't get to find out who till next October! Basically you'll see Negan swinging like it was you and the camera will fade to black as he's done and this mystery person hits the ground. Talk about a fucking major troll by AMC and a letdown but really are you surprised? Hope i'm wrong!

    also not that anyone cares but

    the ejection port on Glen's rifle was closed, meaning it was not ready to fire when he & Michonne were ambushed. The door flips open when you pull the charging handle back to chamber the first round.

    Wow.

    A boring 90 minute episode and they don't even show who died. Pretty damn lame. Though Negan did a great job. Regardless, bleh.

    Not the slightest bit.
    Typically avoid any/all spoilers, but grateful to have read that (100% accurate) warning... deflected all the potential anger I'd be stewing in right now.

    Blerg. Negan's speech was five minutes of the most boring TV I've suffered through recently.

    They should rename this show The Talking Heads. Wait, that was a band. Disregard that.

    Who wants to wager...
    Aaron got Lucille'd instead of Glen? Other than the finale we haven't really seen him in the second half of this season.
    He might as well have been wearing a red shirt.

    i don't get disappointed easily, i tend to see the positive in things, but the dude playing negan really let me down! where's the charisma? i had high hopes stemming from his great performance as the comedian in the watchmen.
    this one moment was the one i looked forward to the most. they fucked it up in every way. what was supposed to be a heart-wrenching, utterly shocking, fucking-leaving-you-speechless moment was the complete opposite.
    at least we've got the comics :?

    fucking lame fucks

    That was the only part I actually liked. The fact he is played like the exact opposite of the homicidal maniac everyone is expecting was kind of cool. Everything he said and did was so matter of fact it makes it seem normal somehow. Once the terror of the experience is removed it gets surreal and confusing and I was hoping he would actually rip out Carl's eye and feed it to Rick like he said he would. I hope Negan kills everyone.

    Fuck spoilers,who hasn't watched this? -we're at the end anyhow.

    So I started watching my download on my home computer at 7am but had to get to class so I could not finish it until I downloaded it again on my iPad btw classes. Fucking hell could they have condensed that episode or what? I mean it was sort of cool how every detour lead to a bigger massing of Saviours blocking the road but there never seemed like an urgency with Rick & Co. For all their collective supposed badass-ness they really just walked right into the shit. The Carol/Morgan diversion from the main story was dumb. Great they'll be on the same page about when and when not to kill by next season! :roll:

    I'm so pissed my spoiler about the end was true. AMC you suck. Like Waterbear I didn't mind Negan's speech, but AMC is so desperate for ratings locks that it could not even give us the identity of the character killed till season 7?! Do they really think people won't tune in unless it's a cliffhanger? Everyone would regardless just for the aftermath.

    There is a campaign on spoilthedead to say fuck you to AMC/ Gimple by spoiling the Lucille death before season 7 starts. These people are really good at what they do including having people go to filming locations to see who's missing. Hell AMC could not even keep the finale a secret without audio leaked and thats without promos sent to reviewers. I hope they do.

    WOW! That seems like a bit much...it is just a TV show.

    I wasn't happy with the way it ended, but I don't have to go after the network/show. Maybe some of these folks need to watch less TV and go outside 8)

    Yeah it's just a tv show but for people that have invested years of their lives reading the comic books it can be a little more important to them.

    It's funny though because for weeks leading up to this episode interviews were being shown all over the media at how horribly upset the cast was when reading the script for the season finale. A couple actors said they couldn't sleep for days. Daryl threw his script across his trailer and didn't show up for filming on time for the first time ever. Other people cried and whatnot so everyone thought it meant something horrible was happening to someone. Now it's come out that the actors themselves still don't know who is getting killed so their frustration was about the lack of an ending just like the fans. And it's being reported that it will be used in contract negotiations so if someone wants more then AMC wants to give it could easily be that person who gets their head smashed in. Which is a tactic that was used on another show Gimple worked on before. Using a cliffhanger someone will die season ender to crush the actors in negotiations before the next season because everyone becomes expendable.

    You know even before you said that I was thinking the same damn thing. AMC is notoriously cheap and only cares about lining their pockets, plus I don't think much of Gimple, Hurd, Nicotero and the crew running this show- far be it for them to take some sort of cut. The fact that Nicotero gets to direct at all is beyond me- stick to make up assclown! Yeah but why not pull this strategy...."Oh you want a pay raise? You are on a zombie show and no one knows who's head Negan bashed in. If you ask for too much it will be you!"

    They ousted Darabont in a similar way and the actors who sided with him all soon found themselves written off the show via a death.
