Remember, I'm just writing what I see and reacting.

Welcome back, everybody!!! IT'S THE SEASON FINALE!!! Who do you think will make it to the end? I'm really hoping Negan bites it tonight. I've really had all I can take of this guy. Sure, I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but I hate Negan, and he can take Eugene with him. I officially hate that dude. He is in the boat with Lori and Andrea. He's got to go...

Opening with Rick and little Carl on a farm. I'm still ticked that they killed Carl. I could do without the closeups of the walkers. Where is the little Savior Alden going? Siddiq telling Rick about his mother's story, and he is telling him about Carl getting bit. He said that Carl died paying respect to a woman he never knew, but it was dangerous. Jerry and Ezekiel talking philosophy. Daryl thinks that Dwight might be setting them up. Morgan is hearing things. That's not a good sign, and he almost killed Henry. He has slipped. Maggie tells the Saviors they are staying behind. Rick tells Morgan that maybe he should stay. Morgan tells Rick that they are worse than they were. He tells Rick that he has crossed into the wrong because they have lost everything good. Rick says they haven't. He says that they have lost everything so let's finish it. They have all left Hilltop.

Dwight has been demoted to one of those dirty jogging suits and from the looks been beaten. Of course, the weasel Eugene has arrived with bullets. He is giving tips. Eugene is volunteering, and Negan is taking Gabriel with him, and then telling them that he sacrificed a group of his own men to give fake intel to Rick. Now, Morgan is now seeing Jared. Rick and the crew found the other map that is a fake. Gabriel just threw himself out of the moving car, because that's a good idea. What does he think he is going to do? HE IS BLIND!!!! I mean what is the plan, Gabriel?

Where is he going to go with no peripheral vision? Of course, Eugene is the one who catches him. Negan hits him in the bat. Now, Jesus and Morgan are talking. Jesus what are you talking about? Jesus tells him to use the pointed end for the dead, and the dull end for the living. Saviors are attacking the Hilltop, and Negan just announced to our guys that they are surrounded. He is telling him that Dwight set them up not on purpose. He is going to let Dwight watch them die, and he is going to kill Gabriel, too. Eugene set up all the Saviors with bad bullets!!!! The fight is on!!! Negan is on the run!!! The Hilltop guys have left. The Hilltop Saviors are going to help Tara slow down the Saviors. Jesus is able to get through to the MOrgan about killing. Bombs are going off outside Hilltop. Aaron and Oceanside arrived and are bombing the Saviors!! What? Negan's people are surrendering? Rick is chasing Negan, but he is out of bullets. Negan is hiding behind a tree, and he hits Rick in the gut. There is so much going on right now!!!!

They are in hand to hand combat, and you know Negan is not going to fight fair. What's with the stain glassed windows. Rick tells him that his people have surrendered. Rick is also hurt badly. Rick is trying to compromise with this dude. He tells Negan they don't have to fight. He used one of the broken stain glass window panes to slit Negan's throat. He tells him that Carl didn't know what he was talking about. Maggie wants Negan dead, but Rick is telling them that Negan is still alive, that all of of this is for what. He tells them all to go home, and let's start over. He says that there has to be something after. Rosita asked Eugene if he did the sabotage. He says he did. Then, she punched him for the puke. Morgan takes off his armor and tells Carol to give it to Henry. Rick is under the tree asking for forgiveness. This is so freaking corny. The war is over, and no one important died. Seriously, this is...Negan should be dead, Rick. I'm with Maggie. 

Alden wants to stay behind and help build the Hilltop. They are helping the Sancutary people put their stuff back together. What is Daryl up to with Dwight? He brought Dwight back to where he killed Denise. Dwight says that he knows that he has to pay. He was just happy to see Negan taken down. He apologizes to Daryl. Daryl gives him the keys to the truck and tells him to leave, find Sherry, and never come back, or he will kill him. Morgan has arrived at the trash heap. He tells Jadis that Rick wants her to come to Hilltop. He tells her that she does not want to be alone. Jadis tells him her name is Anne. He tells her that he is going to stay. That he needs to. Dwight finds Sherry's note. Ezekiel, Jerry, Carol, and Henry have arrived back at the Kingdom. Maggie and Jesus and talking, she is going to build up Hilltop, but she believes that Rick and Michonne are wrong about Negan, and she is going to show them. Daryl comes out of the dark to agree with them. Michonne and Rick have Negan captive. They are going to put him in a cell for the rest of his life. He is going to get to see them rebuild. He is going to be a symbol of the wrong way. Gabriel is back at his church in Alexandria. He thanks God, and he says he understands now, and he can see. Rick is writing a letter to Carl. He said he helped him remember who he was. He said that he showed them a new world and how to live in it. Sigh...

I'm not sure how I feel about this ending, but the war is over. Negan is still alive and, probably, plotting. Maggie, Jesus, and Daryl are definitely plotting to kill Negan. Michonne and Rick are going to start a new world...until the next bad guy comes along. It's been a season, y'all!!! Enjoy Fear the Walking Dead, see you guys in October!!!!!

***WARNING***
***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***
***I update during commercials.***
Remember, I'm just writing what I see and reacting.


Welcome back, everybody!!! Last week, we had a little issue with the old cable company, and well, hopefully, all the problems have been rectified. Only one more episode until the season finale. 

Opens with Rick reading Carl's letter and looking at Judith. Awwww, Carl is reading it, and reminiscing about the happy days with family before the fall. Jerry walking with the littlest baby. Showing everybody in the calm before the storm. He is talking about everybody finding a way to peace. That if Negan won't do it, that he should. Carl wants the killing to stop. So, Michonne is about to read what Carl wrote to Negan, huh, why did she wait this long. It wasn't like Rick has been around to stop her. 

Of course, Gregory is back with the Saviors and talking to Simon. I hate this dude. Oh, so Simon thinks he's in charge, and he does not know that Negan is back. Uh-oh, so stuff is going to hit the fan tonight. Speaking of stuff, Gregory has a ton of it coming out of his mouth right now. Simon is like, dude, you are a dead man. Wow, this speech Gregory!!! That big talk lasted all of five seconds. He is going to be coffee boy for Simon. Dumb. The ladies of Oceanside has said that Aaron is on his own. Eugene is still making these people eat some mac and cheese and sardines...eww. He has turned into a boss who is trying to boss the guys into the number of bullets they need to keep Simon. He has Gabriel masked up. Gabriel is trying to screw up the bullets. Gabriel is falling back to the scared Gabriel. Ugh...Eugene has taken him off the line and told him to go sit in the corner and keep his crying to a minimum. LOL...Rosita and Daryl have kidnapped Eugene. A whistle, and Dwight sees that Negan is back. Dwight told him Simon was number two, and he was just following Simon. He tells him to remember this conversation when the time comes. 

Ha, Simon, Negan's home. He is talking about screwing up Hilltop. He doesn't know that Negan knows about the Heapsters. Negan says that he should have taken out Simon in the beginning. He makes Simon get on his knees and tells him all is forgiven. They want to keep Hilltop cut off. Negan plans to try to snipe them until they are scared to leave. He holds Dwight back and sends the rest off. I think Negan picked up that girl savior who got away from Dwight. I think Dwight is going to die tonight. 

Eugene is already getting on Daryl's nerves. Eugene is trying to justify his becoming "Negan." Eugene blames Rick. Rosita says he'll live, but they will keep him for his knowledge. Someone may be in the bushes watching them. Dwight is still in spy mode, but in comes Simon, who still wants to take over the Sanctuary after Negan let him go. Simon is planning a mutiny against Dwight. Dwight is siding with Simon? What? One or both of them is dead tonight.

Eugene is up to...eww, he just threw up all over Rosita. Of course, he is hiding in the ashes. Whatever happens to Eugene now, I'm done with him. Walkers are stalking Aaron, who at this point is running on fumes. Yet, Aaron took out five of the Walkers, before he wakes up to the ladies of Oceanside. He gives them a King Theoden fight speech before passing out again.

Dwight is back where he started earlier tonight. Simon and his mutiny crew with Gregory...LOL...really? This is the crew that is going to take out Negan. Simon wants to take out Negan and then destroy the Hilltop. Dwight turned on Simon...LOL. Whooo. Took out the whole crew except Dwight and Gregory. Simon asked Dwight why. Dwight says Negan would win. Now, Negan tells Simon that he knows about the garbage people. Then, he goes all Ric Flair. To be the man you've got to beat the man. Simon is still talking trash as he is about to fight Negan. Negan is holding up well considering he's been in a wreck and a fight, and Gregory is trying to sneak out. For Real Dwight, you are going to trust Gregory? Well, Negan just choked Simon to death. 

This commercial for next week's The Walking Dead with Negan bringing Gabriel as a hostage reminds me of Hershel. Gregory actually came back to Hilltop and brought the map that Dwight gave him. Now, Dwight and Negan are together in the bowels of the Sanctuary, and Negan has "made him his right hand man." I knew it!!! I knew that's who he picked up. The girl who escaped. She has told on Dwight. Negan used Gregory to send his fake plan. He said he thought about killing Dwight, but he has some other plans for Dwight. Negan wants the bullet order filled by tomorrow morning. Eugene is full Negan, and he will fulfill his orders. Man, Negan put Simon on the fence. Michonne is talking to Negan. She tells him to shut and listen. She is reading Carl's letter to Negan. He said the same thing to Negan that he said to Rick. Negan said that he will not accept their surrender. He only wants them dead. That Rick started this, and their destruction is the only way to start over. Season Finale Next Week!!!! Looks like they are meeting on the battle field!!!

Dead Viewing: Season 8, Episode 14-"Still Gotta Mean Something"

***WARNING***

***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***

Remember, I'm just writing what I see and reacting.

Who is Jadis hiding? She's pretending to be dead as they kill her people. She has an Ikea room in one of the containers? Why does she have Negan's bat? FYI, I am hating CableOne right now. They are giving me a thousand reasons to cut the cord. She has Negan tied to a rolling dolly.

Carol and Ezekiel are talking. Ezekiel wants to look for Henry, and Carol does not want to go. Ezekiel can not believe that she does not want to go. He tells her that he thought she was brave, but she is a coward. Tara tells Daryl that she is clean, and Dwight used a clean arrow. Daryl still does not trust Dwight. Now, Michonne is reading Carl's letter and offers it to Rick to read, but he does not. Rick reveals to Michonne that he has not read Carl's letter. She told him that she did the same thing when it happened to her. She tells him that Andrea stopped her, and she is going to stop him. He's not leaving until he reads the letter. Morgan is off to find Henry and Ezekiel. Carol decides she is going with Morgan. Maggie and the rest are now meeting to see about the Saviors. They believe they don't have enough ammo. Rosita reminds them about Eugene "the bullet maker." Negan tells Jadis that the murder of her people wasn't part of his plan. She doesn't need to hear that as she puts the bat next to his head to shut it up

Missed a piece sorry guys, but I came back to Morgan and Carol trying to pick up Henry's trail. Rick decides to go after the Saviors after seeing Carl's hat. Alden (finally got his name) the "good savior" tells Rick about the dive bar. Negan is mostly loose now and has a gun and flare as Jadis pushes a corpse between him and her. I messed up with this segment. Sorry guys, important phone call. Hopefully, I will not miss any more.

Morgan and Carol have come across a walker herd. They see a Walker coming toward them impelled with Henry's stick. Morgan is determined to continue after he killed the walker. Morgan tells Carol she saves people, and he watches them die. Carol tells him that he knew that she could come back, and she knows that he can come back, too. Morgan says that he has to be the one to kill Henry. Jadis and Negan are discussing as Negan threatens to burn her pictures which is all she has left of her people. He tells Jadis that the bat was named after his wife Lucille. There is a helicopter. What is this? Jadis signaled, but it's gone. He tells her that he can settle the debt, and she does not burn the bat. Rick comes across the herd and Morgan. Morgan's cheese has definitely slid off the cracker. Rick tells Morgan that he is out there for them and to finish it. They will finish it together. They see a hand and leg, and then Rick gets knocked out.

Rick and Morgan have been captured by the runaway Saviors. Jared needs to die. For reals. They think that is they give Rick and Morgan to Negan that they will have a win. The other Saviors want out. Rick is trying to convince them that his way is a way to a fresh start for all of them. Jared, of course, does not believe them. Rick is telling them a herd is on the way. Jared is telling them that he saw Morgan kill one of his own men. Morgan agrees saying that he came here to kill all of them, but that the herd is still coming, and he should save his bullets. He says it doesn't matter because everybody turns, and here comes the herd. Finally somebody knocks the crap out of Jared. The other Saviors free Rick and Morgan. Then, Rick and Morgan killed the Saviors, except Jared who is trying to escape. Morgan sees him though. Jared sucker punches Morgan and has him down, but Morgan throws him off and locks him in with the walkers who summarily eat him. One Savior is still alive, and Rick tells him that he lied and put a bullet in his head. Morgan walks past Rick saying "Everybody turns." Rick tells Morgan that he saved him. He asked him why did Morgan save him. Morgan tells Rick that he saved him because his son was there. Rick is looking at himself covered in blood in a broken mirror.

Negan tells Jadis that she did not lose her. He insists that she tell him about the helicopter. He tells her to come with him. She chooses to stay. Carol has found Henry. She apologizes and says that he can survive. I thought Zeke went out to look. Carol brought him back. 

Carol and Zeke holding hands, and Morgan and Rick made it back. Morgan told Henry that he killed the men who killed his brother. Henry apologizes for that. Morgan ends crying alone. Jadis brings in a suitcase. As she contemplates. Negan picks up a hitchhiker. He tells the guards that they are to keep it quiet. Rosita and Daryl have found Eugene's warehouse. Rick has showered. He thanks Michonne and tells her he is sorry and that he loves her. She leaves him alone to read Carl's letter. Episode ends with Rick reading the letter. Only two episodes left...

Until next week...

Dead Viewing: Season 8, Episode 13-"Do Not Send Us Astray"

***WARNING***
***You may want to stop here.***
***There will be spoilers.***
***This is not a review. It is just my thoughts as I'm watching the show.***

Remember, I'm just writing what I see and reacting.


Welcome back, everybody! Opening with Morgan, seeing Gavin's dead image telling Morgan that he was supposed to. To do what? Then, Morgan here's horns, and the rest of the crew blow horns to signal the influx. Ezekiel and Carol have to convince young Henry to stay put while the rest go out to defend the Hilltop. This older lady Hilltopper is being condescending to Siddiq questioning his every action. He finally puts her in her place as she tells him that she likes him. They go to commercial as the Saviors are about to reach the gate. 

The Saviors are welcomed with spikes, but they don't notice at first, but now they do.  Maggie Rhee introduces herself to Simon. Simon tells her that Negan received her package. She tells Simon she has 38 men and 38 bullets, and she is willing to use them. He tells them that they are on their own. He basically says screw the Saviors she has. Gregory tells her did she really think it would work. She says it will. Dwight tries to convince Simon that Negan may still be there. Up comes Daryl with guns blazing. The Saviors follow Daryl in and all Hell has broken loose. Guns from the Hilltop Side, and guns and arrows from the Saviors. Siddiq comes out to help Carol save on of the Hilltoppers. Daryl sees Dwight with Simon. Somebody is down, but I can't see who, it may be Tara, and Maggie has given the fall back signal. Lights are out, and everything is quiet. Simon adn his crew are coming out in the open without being able to see anything. They are trying to surround the house. Simon tells Dwight that they will be making a "house call." It was a set up. As soon as the Saviors get close, lights come on, and they are surrounded as the Hilltop starts shooting; the Saviors try to retreat, but Rick and his crew come from the outside. Meanwhile, Gavin is acting like Lori's ghost and harassing Morgan during the fight. Some of the Saviors still manage to escape as Rick and Maggie chase them away from the gate. Maggie said she wanted to kill them all, especially Negan. Rick agrees with her. Rick tells Maggie that Negan wasn't there because he tried to kill him, for which she thanks him.

Tara was scratched by the arrows. Tara believes that Dwight tried to save her life. Daryl, however, does not trust Dwight. Michonne and Rick are finally alone together. He's trying to open up a window for the kids, but I believe it's just to keep busy. He's been cut, too. He's telling Michonne how he tried to take out Negan by himself. Maggie cuts the young Savior loose to bury "his people" who he claims are no longer his people. Dianne tells Maggie she's a good leader. Maggie isn't sure because of the people who died, but not Negan. Carol saved her Tobin's life for now. He asks if Carol is going to stay after the fight. She says she doesn't know. The end of the fight just gives them one day. There are no guarantees. Why does Henry have this gun?

Siddiq offers to treat Rick's wounds. Do not send us astray after them, Siddiq tells him was the end of a prayer for the dead that he was taught. Who is this? Hilltopper telling Maggie she is a better leader than Gregory who was all for himself.  Everybody is sleeping in the mansion. What's happening to Tobin? Dude, Tobin turned hella quick, and just killed the watcher, and the doctor lady. Now, he is on his way to the house with the Walkers he has made. The other sown up dude who was talking to Maggie has turned into a walker, too. How freaking soundly do these people sleep?!! People are about to die. 

Henry has the gun at the pen. Henry didn't believe that Gavin killed his brother. Gregory trying to talk the kid into giving him the gun. Henry doesn't trust him. Tobin and his crew are taking out folks left and right. They are doing amputations on the floor. Oh, Henry has his eye on the real killer, but he has opened the gate and is now inside the pen. He is threatening to kill them all if Ben's killer doesn't step forward, when a zombie attacks one of the Saviors! Henry is so stupid, now the Saviors and Gregory are free with a gun. Henry went all Carl the wrong way. More the Carl getting Dale killed stupid. 

Well, many people died during this fight. Carol realizes it's Tobin, and she puts him down. They realized that Negan wanted to injure them with the walker blood so they would turn. Why is Siddiq fighting by himself? The young Savior tells her what Henry did, and that the others ran away. They can't find Henry. Why is Gavin bothering Morgan? Maggie is thinking of the cost of fighting Negan as they look at their filling cemetery. Sigh, until next week...

Remember, I'm just writing what I see and reacting.

Ugh, Negan starting the show. I hate this dude and Simon. Must we start at the Sanctuary. Dwight and Negan confrontation on tap. Dwight feeding him a lie. NEgan buying the line of garbage, and telling him to get ready for battle. They are headed to Hilltop to give wounds to make them turn. No head shots, and don't kill them. Not that Simon is known for following direction. Simon tells Dwight that he is to ride with him per Negan's orders. Scene ends with Negan in his black Charger with Lucille riding shot gun in a bucket of walker guts as he tells her how beautiful she is. I'm really sick of this dude. 

Rick and Michonne are walking through the gates at Hilltop, which is starting to resemble a shanty town with all of the tents. Aww, Judith is reunited with her father. Daryl and Rick exchange heads up before Rick goes to the graveyard. Daryl rolls in talking about how unfair about the people who are here and gone. Daryl apologizes for the Sanctuary hit. They both agree its time to fight. Rick tells Daryl he's okay, and they they well be okay. He thanks Daryl for getting every body to Hilltop. Maggie asks Rosita if he will come from back from this. Rosita says no, we just keep going. They agree that it won't be over until Negan is dead. Simon asks Dwight what he thinks of this road trip. Simon does not believe that this will "warning" will not work. Dwight says he is not paid to think. Dwight says that Rick, the Widow, and the King don't scare, which means he thinks this will not work, too. Someone has left a set a crates asking for phonographs, and they will offer the key to their future. Michonne and Rosita agree to take the records. Rick has spotted the Saviors caravan and more specifically Negan.

Simon sees the SUV coming does nothing, and Rick hits Negan and gets him away from the caravan. The Saviors want to check on Negan, but Simon says they block the road while he and Dwight go and check on Negan. Rick has caused Negan to wreck and over turn his car, and is wasting bullets shooting at Negan has escaped to an abandoned building, and both are followed by walkers, and Rick is now out of bullets. Rick throws his ax at Negan who falls and is dangling on the edge of staircase. He goes for Negan's fingers, and Negan falls, but you know Negan is like the Coyote. He's gonna get back up.

Who are these Hipsters Maggie, Michonne, and Enid are meeting with. Who is this Glenn Close wanna be named Georgie. This woman is wearing a seersucker suit jacket and pearl earrings. The woman is preaching goodness, but Maggie and Enid aren't buying it. Maggie wants the Hipsters to come to Hilltop with them. Rick and Negan are still insulting each other in the dark. Negan doesn't understand "Rick's problem" in letting him try to "help them." He says in honor of Carl he will lower their take to 25%, and Rick gets to be his janitor. Rick tells Negan that he doesn't trust them after he wiped Jadis's people. Uh-oh, Simon, somebody is in trouble, and Rick now has the gut covered Lucille. 

TOO MANY COMMERCIALS!!!!!!!! 

Simon and Dwight discussing wanting to kill Negan. This is not going to end well. Simon wants to team with Dwight and move on from Negan. They've found the "accident," and all I can say is that this cannot end well for Simon. They are contemplating staying and looking for Negan, or go back and start new with the Saviors. This is when Dwight decides to take a smoke break, wait a minute...he sets Negan's car on fire, and he and Simon are walking away. Hey, Jerry. Michonne still believes that they should honor their vow, and she tells Enid to stand down. She tells Maggie that things don't always work our, but this is not what Carl wanted them to do. Rick tells Negan he can't save anyone because he doesn't care about anything but that bat, and Rick declares he will let Negan kiss Lucille goodbye before Rick sets the bat on fire. 

AGAIN, TOO MANY COMMERCIALS!!!!!

Rick is fighting Walkers and Negan with the burning Lucille. Negan calls Rick a psychopath who's going to get them both killed. Rick says as long as Negan goes first. Negan has escaped. Maggie agrees to abide by the terms. They exchange the records for the crates. Georgie gives her a book on how to build up the Hilltop. Enid tells Michonne about Natanya. Michonne tells her that there has to be something after the fight with the Saviors. Dwight asks his men, who they are. They say they are still Negan. He says they need to keep to the job at hand. Simon has decided to erase the Hilltop for Negan. Oh...Negan didn't escape. Jadis has him at gunpoint, and she knocks him out!!! Wow...
