Re: The Walking Dead S07E10, "New Best Friends"

Are this new group the last surviving goths or are they vampires? This episode had an oddly Twilight feel to me for some reason.

Spoiler: until everyone sees it


well they all wear black, have weird haircuts, some have weird eyebrows and the lead woman speaks disjointedly. that's all very vampire-y.

Ok, someone double check me on this - when Rick climbs out after the fight and we get a face shot of him with miles of junk behind him, look to the right in the sky - I thought I saw either a plane or a bird.

i thought those shots were major CGI looking it was awful. It was obvious Rick was standing in front of a screen.

I think the new group are gothic and odd, but not vampires because they want real food.

Re: The Walking Dead S07E10, "New Best Friends"

I think the new group is super odd, but capable. They leave supplies out, then track the people who took them to get them back, plus more. They are well armed, and they are disciplined. In a battle with Negan, both aspects will help.

I enjoyed Daryl seeing Carol again, and think it was smart that he lied to her. I think she will come around again, and soon, but she needs time to get her head straight. The war will come to her and she won;t be able to hide forever. And same with Ezekial. The war is coming.

Re: The Walking Dead S07E10, "New Best Friends"

I hope we get a better understanding (explanation) of the overall demeanor of the new group. Some insight into their eccentricities would help to keep it from seeming too contrived. Some mysteriousness is cool, but I would like some idea as to why the leader talks the way she does, and what peculiar thing they may all have in common.

Re: The Walking Dead S07E10, "New Best Friends"

The new group seems a cross between The Borg and a mash up of the Sharks and the Jets. I like them. Regardless of their seemingly primitive motivations, at least they move forward and have a purpose. Maybe it's just that the Saviors haven't stumbled on them.

But Daryl and Carol together was the best. Their chemistry is the highest on the show and the actors inspire each other to make truly wonderful moments. I agree that Daryl was right not to tell her. Such disaster can wait.

The garbage pit battle reminded me of the Star Trek episode with the Gorn. Where Rick (Kirk) had to use elements available to defeat a stronger opponent.

Oh---Jadis is the name of the white witch in CS Lewis' The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. I doubt there's a connection, but I found the sharing of names interesting.

To me it was like a cross between a bad episode of Season 1 Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. I was waiting for Jadis to tell Rick how many of them had been jumped by Mister Death, and ask if he would take them to Tomorrowmorrow Land. Sheesh.

It's been, what... 2-4 years since the ZA happened? It is waaaay too soon for a group of people the same age as Rick to alter their speech patterns and behavior this much. Maybe if they were kids when the ZA happened, and it has been all they ever knew... but a few years ago all these people had normal lives, regular jobs, and talked with regular words.

And is this the most gullible Rick's people have ever been? "Give us lots of guns, and we'll fight for you!" Yeah, right!!! Come ON! There is absolutely no reason to believe this group is trustworthy, and plenty of reasons to think that they are bat<snip> crazy.

Unquestionably great. This episode was a mixed bag. Great acting from Melissa, she got the snot flowing quite convincingly!

Re: The Walking Dead S07E10, "New Best Friends"

I don't know. I found the group's coordinated dance moves and speech patterns interesting. Jadis (I assume---although there could have been an earlier leader or several leaders) probably devised these physical and verbal rituals as a way to bond these people together so that they all could benefit. In crisis people tend either to want to belong or to be alone.

One problem I do see is that suddenly there are all these groups who trying to out-imagine one another in terms of surviving the apocalypse. I mean in terms of the writing. I'm thinking who's next? Scientology? Druids? Neo-Vikings who live on ships and raid coasts for supplies? On the other hand, I find both the Saviors and Hilltop so boring that a part of me automatically gravitates to weirdos like the Kingdom and this new theater group quite easily. At least Rick and his community can talk openly with them about fighting and progressively gain something of a result.

Re: The Walking Dead S07E10, "New Best Friends"

the hand gestures of the Garbage Pail Kids reminded me of the Fremen from Dune.
