WORST EPISODE EVER!!!

This most recent one? I didn't think it was too bad compared to some of the other ones, at least they actually killed some walkers. I have a feeling we're going to have filler episodes, and yet another cliffhanger going into next season and the eventual battle with the saviors.

For me, the worst episodes were the ones focusing on the governor after woodbury, and the one this season where tara ended up at oceanside.

I wouldn't say that the latest episode was the worst, but it was far from one of the best. There's been a serious lack of action lately, and i agree with iowa that there's a lot of filler leading up to all out war. In fact ... actually, I'll put this comment in spoiler tags since it's related to the comics ...

To me it was laughable . Did any one in this world really think rick was getting eaten . Then I literally laughed out loud when he jumped out of the box

Yeah that was a wee bit hokey but I think they were trying to illustrate how "close" Rich and Michonne are now.

dont get me wrong, I still think its a great show, just didnt like the episode. Also im not buying the Rick and Michonne relationship. It seems forced to me.

I was not impressed by this last episode. I'm getting really, really fed up with the Morgan/Carol/Kingdom storyline. They are milking the hell out of that for filler episodes. I can almost guarantee this season is going to end on yet another cliff hanger forcing us to wait until next season to see the much anticipated battle with the Saviors. Saddest thing about this second half of the current season is the total lack of Negan. Jeffery Dean Morgan is awesome when he's on screen, you hate the guy, but he almost makes you like Negan in a way. He has a certain charm, they couldn't have picked a better guy for the role in my honest opinion. Yet we barely see him.

I agree that we're getting a lot of filler to stretch out the storyline. If I'm not mistaken, this is about the fifth straight episode that had nothing to do with the comics. And you're right ... this whole season is the March to War. I just wonder if most of next season will be All Out War. In the comics, the war didn't last that long, so I hope they don't stretch it out over an entire season. But based on all the filler we've gotten this season, that's what I'm expecting.

With that said, I actually did enjoy the last episode. We got two character deaths. And I didn't see Richard's death coming. Carol is back in the game, and Morgan is unhinged again.

Drizz, it's a good thing you didn't post an actual spoiler ... your hidden text isn't so hidden.

You got the coding right, but use the word spoiler instead of hidden.

I will say this last episode wasn't too bad but I do feel like what they did to the Oceanside women was questionable. I get they need the guns, but to leave them with nothing to defend themselves? I get that it's supposed to be for the greater good but it kind of seemed a bit Negan-ish to me.

Yeah, that was pretty harsh. They said they'd return them though. That's awfully confident considering what they're going up against.

The Season 7 Finale though as a whole? I thought it was very predictable. As soon as things went south, I told my wife you just watch, they'll get bailed out soon enough. Admittedly it was good fun to watch though. Finally some action, instead of nothing but boring dialogue. They didn't hit us with a ridiculous cliffhanger either so that was great.

From a storytelling perspective, I liked the finale ... particlarly the scene with Negan, Rick, and Carl. What I didn't like was all the cheesiness and deus ex machinas. The gunbattle was so unrealistic ... groups of people standing out in the open and not getting shot. And like a typical Hollywood movie, the bad guys were slower on the trigger and couldn't shoot worth a damn. And how did Shiva know who to attack? That's one smart tiger. But what I disliked the most was the Kingdom and Hilltop showing up at exactly the same time, and right as Negan was about to kill Carl. The dialogue and suspense leading up to that moment was great. But it was ruined by a silly deus ex machina. I expect better than that from TWD.

Yeah I agree, they could've done it better. I did enjoy it though, in light of the other episodes it was an improvement.

I am starting to get quite annoyed with the gunfights as well, come on. These people are survivors that have been through hell, so they all stand out in the open like they're forming a Napoleonic style firing line and exchanging volleys? They need to pay more attention to those kinds of little details because it kind of breaks the immersion at times. Nothing against the acting, I feel like the actors are doing a fine job, but the writing and the choreography need to be better, especially for a prime-time show as popular as The Walking Dead.
