They could have just shot Negan as soon as he walked out ...

Spoiler: read after watching


Frustrating! This keeping Negan alive story is starting to wear thin with me, esp with all the chances to take him out.

And why didn't our dear Father just back the vehicle up to Gregory to let him in, and then drive away? You've got mobile cover, USE IT. Speaking of, I was hoping when Gregory got tossed down the stairs, it was to a waiting zombie.

Aww Carl feeding the outcast - I doubt we've seen the last of him (tho I hope he has a can opener.)




be sure to catch Talking Dead on AMC.com, very good 100th episode - they got the entire old cast together with the new. direct link if ya want it: http://www.amc.com/shows/talking-dea...-dead-on-mercy

I can't stand Chris Hardwick anymore so I don't watch the Talking Dead these days. He is just a shill and not a voice for the fans. He didn't even have the balls to call them out on the Glenn dumpster shenanigans or the lame cliffhanger with Negan's kill.

I read that the actor who plays eugene asked why the ricksters didn't just shoot negan when he was standing there and that Hardwick changed the subject.

I hear you FF, Hardwick can be a bit much to take - but I wanted to hear what all the actors had to say, esp the ones we haven't seen in awhile. Eugene DID say he wondered why Rick didn't just waste Negan - and yep, CH changed the subject.

Re: The Walking Dead S08E01 "Mercy" - SEASON PREMIERE

I want to punch Scott Gimple in the face every time I see that guy for his writing choices. He treats his audience as fools to create fake drama. A real person would have blown Negan away first chance they got. Not let him monologue for so damn long.

But hey, let's create IRONY. Gabriel could have gotten away. Easy. But he goes to save Hilltop Drunk dumbass no one likes. Only to run into box of a room surrounded by walkers. but GASP!--Negan is in the room too. So Gabriel is gonna crap his pants. Yet Gabriel is the one with the gun and could easily start firing and wound or kill Negan. Yet does nothing.

These writing choices make me so angry. I quit watching FTWD for the same reason, and I will quit this show too if they keep it up. You can be realistic and still create drama. These contrivances are maddening. And it is all Gimble knows how to do because he isn't smart enough to create legit scenarios to make it work.

yep, they should have left negan inside and covered - to talk with them. There really is no downside to killing Negan right away. Lazy writers.

What sucks is that Gimple is taking over FTWD when they actually had a better season than TWD has had for years.

The comics get really bad after this current arc in the comics so it doesn't really bode well for their 20 year plans for the show.

Yes! I just burst out laughing!

I often, very often, have to remind myself that I'm essentially watching a comic strip. The dialogue, editing, ... all of it is misshapen as to what it would be in reality, much like a comic strip. I don't remember ever bitching about a comic strip not being 'real' enough. Through that lens, it all makes sense, and frankly, sans that pov, I might have to stop watching.

Eh. Ready to stop watching. Negan storyline could have been solved already. They had no problem taking out the sentries on top of the buildings. Sniper shot to Negan and be done with it.

And now we have flashforward / vision type of story telling going on? :jumpship:
