Yeah, I'm still recovering from last week and the death of Shiva, and now, we have to deal with Gabriel and his stupid decision to help Gregory. Speak of the devil. Flashback to Gregory in the Sanctuary, where I believe he should have died. Simon is an annoyance. Man, Gregory deserves to die. Seriously, this is the dude Gabriel risked his life for. Gregory says he doesn't like to kill people. Negan says he likes to kill people. Oddly enough, Negan and Rick have similar ideas. Dwight leaves the room for a smoke, probably to signal Daryl.  Did Gregory really believe that he was still in charge of the Hilltop?  Seriously, the nickname the Widow is perfect for Maggie. Gregory is the wussiest wuss who ever entered wussdom. Simon is always for kill somebody. I don't think I could work for Negan. He wants to capture the leaders (Maggie, Ezekiel, and Rick) and kill them very publicly. Now, here we are where the season began. Crap, I had forgotten about Eugene. Seriously, Gabriel you had a gun. Negan calls him a big baby.  Please don't tell me this is going to be an hour long rap session between Negan and Gabriel. 

Negan calls Rick an a**hole to which Gabriel responds that Negan is an a**hole. Truth. Thank you! Even Negan thinks Gabriel is stupid for trying to save Gregory. Gabriel feels there was a reason for him to save Gregory. Negan, thinks Gabriel is creepy. For a second time, I agree with Negan. Then, Gabriel gives him a creepy smile and says he's there to take Negan's confession. Boy, bye...

Rick and Daryl look like a raggedy tag team from the NWA days. The Savior who was driving the Humvee, just informed Rick that only Zeke, Carol, and Jerry were the only survivors from the Kingdom. Then, Rick put a knife in his head. Negan believes that a lot of people are going to die without him leading. Negan, of course, is just as creepy as Gabriel by telling Gabe that he pleasured himself where he is sitting. 

The remaining Saviors are plotting, and Regina is plotting to kill some of the workers. Eugene is making better suggestions, so she suggests that they use Eugene. This other random dude has figured out that one of their own has set them up. Dwight has gotten ballsy since the real Negan "maybe" dead. He challenges them to stop back biting and get out of the Sanctuary. Simon buys the bravo, but then again, Simon believed Gregory, but Eugene looks hella suspicious of Dwight.

Eugene and Dwight make a heck of team. He took over from the previous leader by making them "strong." Now, he wants to make Gabriel strong and find his purpose. This dude Gabriel is still trying to get Negan to confess. Gabriel went to far, and now the walkers are breaking through.

Rick and Daryl are fighting now.  Daryl wants to kill everybody, Rick is all nah, we got a plan. Rick is kind of tripping now. Daryl and Rick are really rolling around on the ground fighting while the guns are in a vehicle that is on fire, and nooooowwwww, explosion. Guns are gone.  This cannot end well with Daryl and Rick walking in opposite directions.  Negan is trying to convince Gabriel to come out and walk across the courtyard. Now, he is confessing his greatest sin to Negan. Negan is confessing about his real wife. He is telling how he could not put her down at the end. I love how he just punched Gabriel dead in the face for saying that he is forgiven.  Ugh, I hate it when they do the dead guts thing. I wonder what the fish people are up to...

These are some rank looking walkers. Where have they been? Gabe and Negan are not having an easy time getting through these walkers. Uh-oh falling zombies. The Workers are not playing anymore. The Workers are saying they are tripping. Simon is trying to keep them in line, and Regina killed one of the workers. And who shows up, Negan and Gabriel. Negan has some of the second best lines. Abraham always had the best. I don't know why he always has to talk about his junk, but here we are.  They are taking Gabriel to number 2, and I don't recall that place. I hope it isn't where they kept Daryl, and I definitely don't need to "Easy Street," again.  We only have seven minute left.

Eugene sees the paint on the bag. Eugene knows now that Dwight is the one who is helping Rick and the Crew.  Rick is on the road alone, and wait a minute, where did a helicopter come from? Eugene has been put in charge of finding the mole. Who is this watching Rick? Gabriel is where Daryl was.  Has Gabriel been bitten? So many questions that will not be answered until next week!!! See you then!!!!

***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.

Evening, y’all! Is this a flashback to the beginning of the fighting with Ezekiel preparing for battle? This must be a flashback. Ezekiel’s dreads are starting to bother me. Jerry always looks like he began he day with a piece of cobbler. Dude, Ezekiel with these damn speeches. They are great, but man, every week beginning with one of the leaders giving a speech. Back to reality, all of Ezekiel’s crew is dead except him. They protected him. Now, they are turning, and he is surrounded by them.

Where are Jerry and Shiva? Did Carol get into the building okay. Okay, Ezekiel is hurt. There are a few of them still alive. Okay this group of Saviors are not playing. They have military grade machine guns. Carol has made it into the building safely so far. She is hiding in a corner from the Saviors. Carol took out all of those dudes by herself!!! Wait she did not get them all! There are more! Carol is ghosted. Zeke's rescuer is picked off by this weirdo Jeffrey Dahmer looking dude. Ezekiel and Jerry are on The Talking Dead tonight. That's cannot be good...

So, the Jeffery Dahmer creep is holding  Zeke hostage, while Caorl is stalking the Saviors. This dude mocking Zeke's "sheep" while he blindly follows Negan. This guy is going to make Ezekiel go all Morgan in a minute. Carol just going about her business Caroling...

This dude has got to go. He has got to die. I don't know what his name is but Zeke has got to kill him. I'm tired of him threatening Zeke. There's Jerry! My boy!!!! Taking out serial killer!!! Zeke tells Jerry that he does not have to call him your majesty. He says dude yes I Do. Meanwhile, Carol is still Caroling away, taking out Saviors. I love Jerry. Please don't let him die tonight. Carol sees Zeke and Jerry in trouble. During this commercial break, let me say that there are too many commercials. Random thought: I wonder what the fish people on the coast are up to?

Flashback: Carol and Ezekiel talking about fighting. Zeke explaining again how he has become the king he has. If you are asked to be the hero, be the hero. Carol tells him that she decided to be who she is. Jerry is still alive.  So is Zeke, Carol saves them both, but it looks like the Saviors are escaping with the guns. Zeke wants to get a message to Rick, but Carol says that they didn't get the guns, and she is smiling because she hears Daryl's bike. Rick and Daryl have caught up to the gun runners. Rick and Daryl are going to take this Humvee with a motorcycle and a 1990s Jeep Wrangler. The truck goes off the road, but Rick bailed before it crashed. Let's go see if this a**hole is alive, Rick Grimes.

Zeke wants them to leave him, because he is injured and slowing down. What the heck kind of zombies are these? Zeke just broke character, and told Jerry he is just some dude. Shiva saves Ezekiel one final time before the walkers surround her and kill her. Only three return to the kingdom: Jerry, Ezekiel, and Carol. We see into the Saviors side next week. Pouring one out for Shiva, y'all next week. See you, next week...

Dead Viewing: Season 8, Episode 3-"Monsters"

***WARNING***

***I update during commercials.***


Zeke beginning the episode with a speech before they are surrounded by Saviors? Well, that escalated quickly. Temporarily, held hostage before some other part of the group mowed down the Saviors. Seriously, Shiva just wanders around unleashed all willy-nilly.  Zeke scares me sometimes.

Morales doesn't trust Rick. He just called Rick a monster. They don't kill Rick, the widow (Maggie), and the King (Zeke). Don't kill the leaders, I guess Negan is now Voldemort. I just saw a cutie shooting with our guys. Eric isn't dead yet. Eric is telling Aaron that he needs to leave him and go back to the fight. Such sadness, Eric might be a walker by the time he gets back. Aaron and Eric declaring their love before Eric sends him back into the battle. He'll be a zombie later. I just know. Tara pretending to take shots at the Savior hostages. I need Morgan just to kill this dude already. I don't understand why Jesus wants to save these members of Negan's cult. They are psychopaths. Morales' family never made it to Birmingham. Tell him, Rick! Negan killed Glenn in front of his wife. I hate that dude. Morales, you are nothing like Rick. Seriously, Morales. He has killed people who has threatened him with far worse. Daryl dropped Morales like a sack of potatoes. Daryl is like forget that crap dude. He is dead to me-literally and figuratively.

This dude has got to go. Talking crap about Morgan wearing Benjamin's armor. The escapees are just giving Morgan a reason to kill them. Really, Jesus?! Stop it, please!!! Morgan has been to this. Well, I wasn't expecting that!! Morgan attacking Jesus!!! Wow!!

Meanwhile, Zeke and them just taking out Saviors in between speeches. Jesus just beat Morgan, really? Morgan is losing it again. Morgan says he's not right, but he's not wrong, Tara says that he is right. Did the Saviors dip?

I would not let Gregory in, and Maggie says he's not worth killing yet. Gregory is a pain in the behind, but I'm with him on this one. Lots of turned people, where is Eric? Yep, he's a walker. I'm sorry Aaron. Poor Aaron. They saved baby Gracie, and Aaron is taking her to the Hilltop.

Who's shooting at Rick and Daryl? Who is this person? Sounds like a kid. Why is Rick taking all of these pictures. Who is this dork? Did this dude really just ask could he go? Daryl just dropping people tonight. Zeke and Carol. Man...Scattered too late. Several members of the kingdom are dead, but they protected their king. See ya, next week!!

Dead Viewing: Season 8, Episode 2-"The Damned"

***WARNING***

Wondering if Gabriel has used his pooping pants yet...should have left Gregory. Welcome Back, everyone to episode 2. Here we go....

Are they going to spend the whole season opening on Rick's eyes? Now Daryl's. Now Ezekiel  is down. Something bad has happened. Carol is down, too. The Alexandrians and the Hilltops are not down. These are the Saviors. Uh-oh, somebody's not reporting back. Rick and the Crew are taking our another Savior check point!!! There is so much going on this season, and I still have so many questions. FYI, there is literally not a single Savior I would miss, not one.

Daryl, Morgan, Jesus,Morgan, and Carol are trying to take the weather station again. Morgan is awful damn cocky. Oh, the explosion from the grenades from last week is why they were down. Jerry says protect the king. The king says protect yourselves. Ezekiel with his Medieval  talk, he is a handsome man, but at times, I just want him to shut up, and he sent that kid to get Shiva. Nah, man, I'm good. What place is this where Rick and the others are? What is Morgan...Oh, Diana with the arrows. Bye-bye, Saviors. How did... Seriously how did Morgan get in here? Just found out that the incompetent Savior was the kid who played Minkus in Boy Meets World. This female Savior is talking a lot of noise for someone hiding behind a Cherokee.  THERE IS SO MUCH DEATH AND DESTRUCTION RIGHT NOW!!!!! Luckily, none of our guys.

Daryl and Rick are on the forth floor of the building. Our groups have met up. Jesus was taken hostage briefly by a dude named Dean after Tara said to kill him, and Dean had peed his pants on purpose. What is Morgan doing? I know he was playing dead but...

Jerry is like Gimli in The Lord of the Rings. Zeke is turning into Season 1 and 2 Tony Gonzalez. A little annoying with all the drops, but cute, so I give him a pass. Carol really has a STFU look on her face right now. Be careful, Daryl. Is this where they held Daryl hostage? Is this Negan's brothel? Who is this!!! C'mon Rick!!!! Well, that's one way to take them out. Morgan is just capping everything that is moving? Tara and Jesus's group have captured a group of Saviors. Tara is all for capping them. Jesus is holding them hostage. MOrgan arrives to the bright sunlight with Rick's words from the church playing in his brain. Morgan is about to cap this dude that took his staff. Morgan is right. He tried rehabbing monsters. They don't rehab easily.

Rick is about to lose it over this baby crib. Who was Gracie? Maybe the dude who Rick just killed. Keep it together, Rick. Somebody is bleeding near Carol and Ezekiel's group. There is Shiva. Two Alexandriains have been shot. I think Aaron's boyfriend is going to be next. Way to go with the car, Aaron!!! Oh, no. Eric has been shot. 

Ezekiel and Shiva. Carol and Zeke make a cute couple. Is that a picture of Glenn?  Is this the same guy from season 1? Morales?  What the crap dude? Rick is captured. Looks like Daryl maybe, too. Eric is shot, and Morgan and Jesus are at a stand off. I really don't like all of this staring business. Morales has a gun...See you next week!!!!

Dead Viewing: Season 8, Episode 1-"Mercy"

***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.***


What's up, y'all?! I'm back. Yeah, I'm still not doing football posts, but I am back in action for The Walking Dead! Well, I'm partially back in action. The season change is playing fast and loose with my sinuses, and the Benedryl may kick in at any moment, but I'm going to try to soldier on, guys.

Tonight is the 100th episode of our favorite show, and I have heard that it will be AWE-SOME!!!! Now, there has always been hype before, and it made us go, "meh," but after that last episode (which I'm rewatching now). I have high expectations. Let's hope none of our fair favorites die tonight. Negan's is that a tiger? face will never not be funny. Still miss Abraham, Glenn, and Sasha! 

Here we go!!!! Of course we open on Rick and a cane? Are we at a funeral? I hope this isn't one of those artsy episodes. Everybody getting ready to take out Negan. Are Daryl and Dwight passing notes? Yup. Rick giving one of his speeches. What is Tara writing and where is she getting these Twizzlers? Shiva just chilling in the back of a pickup truck. Rick, Ezekiel, and Maggie leading their people to battle. Are they just gonna talk? Are those Abraham and Glenn's graves or new ones? I hate these artsy episodes. Just tell the dang story.

I forgot that I need Jadis to die, too. Who is this trying to hope that Carl won't shoot him? This calls back to the first episode with the little girl. Carl. Rick is like I don't trust anybody anymore.  Daryl is taking out the lookouts. I guess his is getting intel from Dwight. Well, Morgan is helping to kill?  That's a shocker. Guess Morgan has gone full-Rick. Judith finally aged!!! So, how much time has passed? Rosita is ticked that she could not go. They are just taking out Saviors right and left. Rick just stabs dude who talks smack. They are going to stop threatening Carl. Annnnnnd that is why a walker is now eating him.

Maggie is still not showing? This time line is messed up. They have turned the RV into a tank. Seriously, how much time has passed? They love wasting bullets. Negan kills me the way he walks. How dare you interrupt Negan's meeting. This flashforward stuff what is it?
Now, back to the action. Rick is offering sanctuary to Negan's men. Gregory...that little turd. I hate that dude is a mess. I hate that dude. He really thinks that he is still in charge. No sympathy for Gregory. Yes, Jesus! The Hilltop stands with Maggie! Simon is ticked. Enjoy your trip, Gregory. That tumble is the least of his problems. A countdown Rick. So, Rick has lost all of his chill. Carol is still not entirely with the program. Maggie shooting that pistol reminds me of that Harlem Nights scene with Arsenio Hall. Bye to the RV...Rick is too focused. Don't save that dude. Gregory is going to get Gabriel killed. That son of ....I HATE GREGORY!!!!! 

So Carl went back and took that dude food. Gabriel got left behind. Sanctuary is over run, and Gabriel just ran into Negan. What is this flash forward business? What is this Rick? What is this? I'm so confused. Well, at least no one we loved died tonight...Until next week, y'all...
