Boring and predictable
23 October 2017 | by namikazedanteSee all my reviews

Mercy is not what this episode should be called. Hmm a more appropriate word would be No brains. Because that is what this episode shows us again.

The Walking Dead has no hype left after the writers of this show keep on delivering another pointless season. Rick had another chance to kill Negan and what does he do? Oh yeah ! He takes a picture of him. And also in what scenario do we have a bunch of people who is trained with automatic weapons just a few feet away and everyone misses? Even Rick WHO IS A FREAKING POLICE OFFICER ! ! ! AM I suppose to believe that they missed on point blank and Negan and the others just stands there and they don't even get hit?

And then we have the sheep on internet going 'Oh this was the best episode ever etc.

No this just proves that The Walking Dead team is planing on having a whole freaking season with Negan again. And That priest? Is he completely brainless? He tries to save a person who just sold out all his people and then get locked in with Negan. Negan has a baseball bat. The priest; a automatic weapon. And if he doesn't kill Negan I will lose all interest in this show because I have been asking myself why in the hell would they stay there? They obviously have lots of cars and guns. Why not go south, North? Anywhere. But no Rick is willing to risk his two kids life and everyone else just because of his ego.

This episode was pure crap. End of story.
