MID-SEASON FINALE, Y'ALL!!!!!!


I do not like these jump abouts. They are really annoying. Rick and the Heapsters are at the Sanctuary. The Dead have been stacked up. How in the world did they do this.  The Heapsters have run away, and Carol and Jerry have rescued Rick. Back to Rick and Carl talking after they left Sidiqq at the gas station. Carl says that there has to be more to this life than just killing people. Now, back to teary-eyed Rick. With theses flashes of main characters, I'm beginning to believe one of these guys is going to die tonight, and Negan is on the move. It won't be Rick, but Carl, Carol, Ezekiel, Maggie, and Jerry look to have their heads on the chopping blocks tonight, but I think Gabriel is definitely dead as well. 

This is an awkward conversation between Enid and Aaron who are on their way to Oceanside. Where is she going? Liquor? Judith had gotten way big. Daryl thinks their trapped worked, boy is he in for a surprise. Carl is writing a letter to his father. Now, Carl is alive in the comics, but I'm thinking he is not going to make it through this episode. Tara thinks it worked, too. She is wrong, too. Aaron was injured by Cindy's grandma, and Enid shot and killed her. So, I think she is going to bite it tonight. Carl is trying to go to the sewer. Negan is now at the gate. Michonne can't believe the Saviors got out. Rick is no where close to Alexandria. Rick, Jerry, and Carol are driving toward Alexandria, and Jerry's car was just hit!!!! NOT JERRY!!!

Ezekiel is reading Jerry's letter about leaving, and now the Saviors are at the Kingdom looking for Ezekiel. Who has bounced in a hurry for someone with a bad wheel. Now to Maggie and Jesus talking about the Saviors surrendering. There is a tree in the road. She knows things have gone bad. The Saviors have them trapped. Daryl and Tara have messed it up for everybody. Oh, no the Saviors have Jerry. What is in this box? Freaking Simon. Can he die already? Dang it, Daryl. Carl is saying let them have Alexandria...for tonight. This is so messed up. I hate the Saviors so much. Ezekiel has disappeared. They are taking some of the people to the Sanctuary to clean it, the others will stay to continue producing, and the Saviors are moving into the Kingdom.  

Don't hurt Jerry!!! Surrendering their guns to Simon, or they are going to kill Jerry. I'm so sick of the Saviors always coming out on top. Now, Carl is standing up to Negan, telling him that Rick is not there. Carl is giving himself up. He just said kill me. Carl does not want to die, but he says he'll sacrifice himself for all the others. The Heapsters have escaped with their dump trucks. I don't know what is going on. Dwight and another Savior. Now, Carl is gone, and the Saviors are blowing stuff up!!!! (Side note: Khary Payton is going to be on The Talking Dead, and I'm not happy about that at all.)

Sometimes, I think that I'm not cut out to be a fan of The Walking Dead. I really get tired of all my favorites dying. Carl may have gotten hurt during the bombing. Back at the Kingdom, they are looking for Ezekiel. He is asking them to give up Ezekiel, and he is giving them 5 minutes. Eugene helped them get out, and now they are leading the herd. They killed Neal in the back seat?!!! Maggie is standing down, and she asked for the box. I can't with this mess. 

Back at Sanctuary, Eugene is waking up at midnight, and I would like to feel sorry for him, but I don't. Spineless coward. Where is Carl? Is he still inside Alexandria? What is he doing? He almost got blown up again. Tara, you and Daryl, messed up. Y'all messed up.  Daryl and Tara's group have ambushed the Saviors. The female Savior has figured out it was Dwight. Daryl, Tara, and Michonne has taken out the convoy of trucks. Carl has made it to the sewer. Negan is headed to Rick's house, and he wants them to bring him Carl unhurt.

Where are Carol and Rick? What the freak is Eugene talking about? Eugene drugged the guard to help Gabriel take the Doctor to Hilltop. What is Ezekeil doing? HE has set off a bomb and is leading his people out. Carol arrived just as he was locking the gate. He told Carol to save the people. He has been knocked out though.  Maggie is back at Hilltop, and she just capped a Savior, because of what happened to Neal. Well done, Mags! Shut up, Jesus. I feel really bad saying that. 

Tara and Daryl have guns trained on Dwight. The female Savior got away, but she is going to tell Negan. Dwight can't go back He wants to come with them. Maggie is sending the Saviors a message in a box. Wait, Morgan is at the Kingdom gate. The tool in charge is threatening to kill Ezekiel. Michonne's crew is back at Alexandria. Wait, what is Michonne doing? Rick is back at Alexandria. He is looking for Carl and Michonne, but he finds Negan and Lucille. Rick and Negan fighting, and Rick just got away. Michonne is slicing her way into Alexandria. Michonne is chopping the the living crap out of one of the Saviors. Carl got the majority of the people to the sewer safely. Carol and Ezekiel and Morgan are still alive. So is Eugene. Gabriel is barely alive. Carl is bit. He got bit in the woods when he saved Sidiq. Seriously, The Walking Dead?! All of this was for Carl, now he is going to die. I'm drained. I'm so bitter right now. Seriously, Carl has lost so much, now they are going take Carl, too. I'm just...UGH...Guys, enjoyed it, I'll see you on February 25th. Good grief...

Of course, we begin with naked Rick in trouble again, because he trusted the stupid trash people again. Jadis is photographing Rick for one of two reasons, she still wants to sleep with him or for ransom. So she could sculpt him? What else did she say? I hate her. 

Eugene breaking out the KWL chart, must have minored in English. Eugene now telling Dwight to stop the back-stabbery. Eugene is a mess. BTW, what is happening with Gabriel, Eugene? Eugene just wants himself safe, he claims he's Negan, but just told Dwight, he will keep his treason to himself. Female Savior says they have a day maybe two. Gabriel has multiple infections. Did he tell Gabriel that he looked like a potato and crap casserole? 

Where is Morgan? He has a bead on Daryl. ONe of Negan's wives, is reminding Eugene that he could have ended this, but he only wanted to keep himself safe.  Daryl wants to break into the sanctuary, but Rosita doesn't want to be a part of this. She thinks its going to fail.

Negan and Eugene meeting. Negan telling him how smart he is and how he knows how smart Eugene is. Tells Eugene that he respects him. What is Eugene doing? What is his speaker leading him to do? They brought Sasha's coffin back? Is he going to use the ipod to fix the boom box? I'm thinking this side trip by Daryl is a mistake. It has fail written all over it. Michonne doesn't think it is a good idea. She is bailing on Daryl, too. 

Eugene is trying to lead the walkers away with his little airplane device, but someone is behind him, is that Dwight? Yep, it's Dwight. Eugene is such a turd. Just former traveling companions. Dwight killed the glider instead of Eugene. This is going to be bad, so bad. Well, maybe not too bad, the walkers are in the building. Eugene you better run dude. Eugene is gone. He only cares about surviving. He is about to give up Dwight. The intercom system? Eugene makes me sick. Now, he's drinking himself sick. I can't with this guy...

Making Rick fight another monster, and he defeated the monster and attacked Jadis. HE has its face right in hers. Took her down a peg. Rick wants to kill Negan by him by himself. He has her agreeing to a fourth of the plunder, but Rick and the Heapsters arrive at the Sanctuary, somebody is hanging from the water tower, no snipers are answering, and the lot is empty thanks to Daryl and Tara.  Mid-season finale next week y'all!!!

Welcome back, everybody! So it looks like Rick is off to visit the Junkyard Gang. Everybody looks worse for wear. So we are visiting all the compounds tonight. Maggie left a note for Rick, and Carol sent a note to Maggie. They are still talking over everything. Aaron and Gracie have arrived at Hilltop. They are meeting at Sanctuary in two days. Rick Still thinks the plan is working. Why are the heap people walking around naked?  The heapsters have a visitor. I'm thinking it is Rick. They got these Saviors lined up outside, and Jesus is feeding them. Gregory, man, nobody is listening to you. LOL, Maggie putting him in his place, "Go inside, Gregory." Man, Jesus is really still with saving these Saviors. Dude, talking to the wrong person.

Jerry is still on his post. Even though, Ezekiel has told him he can go. I love Jerry. FYI, Cooper Andrews, who plays Jerry, had a small role on S.W.A.T. Thursday night. Zeke still won't come out of his auditorium.  Jadis is so annoying. She is wondering why Rick is there after she shot him. Grazed him, Rick says. Rick is trying to get the heapsters on their side. Who is this clown of a right hand man?  You made your bed, Jadis. 

Gregory, why are you still talking? Maggie cannot stand Gregory, the sell-out. He is trying to turn Maggie against Jesus. Michonne trying to leave. Tara trying to leave with Dwight. The Saviors trying to get into Jesus' head, while they are keeping them outside the walls of the Hilltop. They should really smoke those fools.

Michonne and Rosita out "taking a look." Michonne is worried about Rick. Why are you out of the car? What is this weird sound they are hearing? Where is this music coming from? A Walker shish kebab chasing a bag, and the dude from the gas station kills it. Carl, be careful with this dude, Sadiq. Carl, why are you out here, and when did your sneak out? Sadiq looks like a more buff Aziz Ansari. He has killed 237 walkers and one person. He kills the walkers to try to save their souls to honor his parents. This little kid from the Kingdom is out here practicing. Why do these kids follow Carol? He wants to help Carol kill the people from the Sanctuary. At least he wants to fight unlike Sam. He might gonna die. Carol is like the pied piper of kids. They just willingly follower her to death.

Enid why are you out here? Wait...what? Maggie, what are you doing? That looks like a make-shift pigpen. Gregory, "We can't have people we don't trust running around." "I know." She is putting Gregory in the pigpen with the Saviors. Jared needs to die already. Just die. I hate this dude. What does care see? What Carl, why y'all messing with these walkers. Oh, Lord here come more. Why Carl, why? You just met Sadiq, and you almost got him killed. Where are Rosita and Michonne? This looks like the bullet factory that Eugene and Abraham found. This is an area Rick doesn't know about, and now they know that Michonne and Rosita are there. Really, girl.  Rosita just lost her gun. The girl Savior is fighting Michonne, and Rosita is after the guy savior, annnnnnnnnnd she just blew the other dude to kingdom come. Rosita, just made this dude evaporate with a bazooka. The girl Savior got away, but Daryl took her out with a dump truck, and a couple of bullets. 

Carol is ready to blast her way in to see Ezekiel, but Jerry tells her it's open. Zeke is broken. He just wants Carol to leave him be. Awwww, Zeke said that Carol made him feel real not fiction. She is telling him that it has to be him. He has to lead them to help them grieve and move on. She reminds him. If he can't be the King, then just act like you are the king. He still doesn't feel like he can. Aaron is still grieving Eric. Jesus wants to thank Maggie. Aaron is headed back out, and Enid is headed out with him. Looks like Jadis has Rick captured and naked. Wow... We are going to find out who the cross over character is going to be. Until next week.

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!!!!

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...
