There is no way back for Carl, surely?

He must die from that bite, unless it wasn't a walker that bit him.

He's hardly been in this season so his character isn't going to be missed, not by me anyway. I don't dislike him, he's just not a character I enjoy watching.

I'm irritated by a lot of things in this show. Last week it was Darryl's hair, this week it was Eugene mumbling every line he was given.

I'll watch the next epi to see how the Carl thing plays out, but this show is on borrowed time!

Next time they show a montage of their faces, I want to see several red exes.

lol. remember when the show was about having to find food? when was the last time you actually saw anybody eat? I know you can say off camera, but still little details like where is the food/water coming from bug me to no end (yes been accused of nitpicking many times.)

Re: The Walking Dead S08E08 - "How It's Gotta Be"

The success of any show is in the details. Once details disappear too much a script becomes just words with actors/characters having to convince us that the story makes sense or is compelling as is. Much of the plot lately hasn't made reasonable sense and that's lazy writing. But worse The Walking Dead story is certainly no longer compelling and that's because the details we would care about have been coopted by either caricatures or total bores or both. The characters we like seem so flat now because their stories themselves have been flattened. Games of Thrones is trying to wander into this story style especially with time traveling appearances in other continents and kingdoms. Fortunately there's still some balance there. But Walking Dead has lost its balance all together.

Re: The Walking Dead S08E08 - "How It's Gotta Be"

great way to put it, boonian - the stories are now flattened. each week now it's just war and garnishing reinforcements, with the occasional skirmish. we're not getting the gut wrenching emotional stuff (well that last part I guess that counts, but even that I have my doubts on.)

I wonder if Siddiq is going to be TWD's Sayid??? I think there's more to him than he's letting on.

Here's an article about Chandler Riggs' dad ripping Gimple.

And here's an article showing the ratings for mid season finale are the lowest (amongst TWD finales) in 6 years.

Wouldn't be surprised if Gimple is replaced next season.

I considered discussing the Chandler Riggs stuff somewhere. Depending on who you are the article itself may tend to contain spoilery info. If nobody cares (I certainly don't) then we can discuss away.

As for ratings, the show itself is to blame. Management and writers are to blame.

Gimple deserves to be eaten by two walkers which start at the toes.

When Gimple pulled the dumpster stunt with Glenn, I was mad. When he then killed off Abraham first, and then Glenn after and put it on Daryl, I was more angry and was over him. But this year has been so crappy overall with the writing and those stupid glamour-smokey face shots. The writing is atrocious with the stupid gymnastics his writing has to do to get characters to do things against what they;d normally do. It makes me mad at characters I like and pissed at him even more. It is a sign of a terrible writer. He has to go. He is blowing it.

As to Carl going, I'm fine with it. But I want Tara next, then to see Maggie kill all the Saviors in her pen. Keeping them alive in there is so stupid.

Stop ruining characters by making them do stupid stuff.

OK. I'm a tad confused. Why didn't the saviors attack Hilltop or accompany maggie back there? It seems unlikely that it would be left alone and the only reason to do so is the typical lazy writing.
