Storyline

The psychopath Negan is still in Rick's house shaving and eating with Carl, Olivia and Judith while Spencer gets closer to the Saviors. Carol is visited by Morgan and Richard that bring supplies to her. Richard asks Carol and Morgan to help him to convince Ezequiel to surprise and fight the Saviors before it is too late and The Kingdom is destroyed, but Carol refuses. Meanwhile Rick and Aaron scavenge supplies in a barge in a lake full of walkers. When they reach the barge, they find an ironic note congratulating them for winning. They return to land and while loading the truck, someone watches them. Daryl succeeds from escaping from his cell and tries to flee from the Savior's compound. Michonne is trying to find a way to defeat Negan and the Saviors. Enid learns that Sasha has a secret agenda and does not want Maggie to know. In Alexandria, the weak Spencer meets Negan and asks him to make him the leader his mother was. Rosita takes a decision that will affect the lives of Olivia ...

Yeah, it's great
11 December 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

I admit that I was kind of expecting a big epic fight in this, but it doesn't really matter. We still see things being set up perfectly. It's great to see so many characters coming together and how they're relevant to the story. Negan isn't always the focus in this episode. We get some good bits with Rick (away from him), Michonne, and Daryl. When you have characters as popular as these, you have to treat them well. Fighting zombies with oars = awesome. It's interesting to see Negan legitimately angry when he's shot at. Well, we killed off more characters in this episode, but it's always been a show where anyone can die.

We even get a nice Book Ends with the same scene and person shown at the end of the episode. This was a little short of airing for 90 minutes as the ad said. It stops about six minutes before then. I thought there'd be a really long scene after the credits. It's entertaining to see Negan try to justify his actions. Just seeing Carl's eye like that in the episode's beginning gives me scares. It's easy to build up tension with these characters. I am aware a lot more of my reviews are liked than disliked here. I believe I agree with what most people say and I will never mean any ill will towards the people who downrate my reviews. If you don't like them, don't read them or follow me. Finally the last mid season finale for me to review! ****
