I don't know...I feel like there is definitely a growing discontent with the show, and if they fuck up the finale, I think you could see a mass exodus reflected in the Fall Premier's rating

this whole season has made me shake my head in disgust so many times...I'm not even all that aware of what happens in the comic, I'm strictly invested in the TV version, and at this point, I feel like I'm watching more to make fun of it when it's over than I am for actual entertainment value

I have no idea why im still watching it.

I should just wait till its all over then watch everything back to back and zoom through the B.S.. I stayed on board for a very long time but the second half of this season has just been.....frustrating.

Something game changing will happen with Negan next week. He kills Rick, Rick kills him, or Rick imprisons Negan (it will definitely be the last one)

Negan surrending in lieu of punishment is a lame path that seems like a possible outcome given the show runners

I feel like this show lost its balls right after it killed Glenn and Abraham and it still hasn't found them...

As per usual with the season finale, they've sold the shit out of it so the show to ads ratio is about 50/50.

I like where that is going.

Overall, kind of a snoozer for a finale.

I actually hated that they turned the Maggie/Jesus/Daryl thing into the next evil conflict. Just let the episode be a positive outcome for once.

I loved this episode because it felt like a reward. For fucking once the "good guys" succeeded. The last few episodes, along with being slow and boring, were depressing as shit.

It was nice to see this show be a little more caring?

And no way Jesus would be up for that. You can't have him lecturing Morgan about not killing and them all of the sudden be all up for going behind Ricks back and Killing Negan ( or maybe even hint at going after Rick and Michone). Makes no sense.

Agreed. THey should have had Jesus go to Sanctuary and have Rosita be part of the new rebellion.

And enough with the rebellions and conflict. Let’s just Watch good happen now for fucks sake. End the show on a good note.

and the Oceanside thing was totally shoehorned in. They were in this ep for what? 40 seconds?

I admit to just watching for the big action scenes now and the increasingly occasional cool walker sequence. Last night set the stage for the former but the misfiring bullets sabotaged that.

Well that was the super-duper happy ending. No injuries or death among the main characters. That episode really could have been a series finale less Maggie's speech. I'm glad Oceanside was only in the episode for a few seconds - you knew they were coming to save the day. Jadis, err... Ann, is now in the group, but we didn't learn more of her helicopter friends.

The Maggie turn at the end was surprising. Lauren Cohan really holds all the cards in the contract dispute. She's the only main character with a open (and potentially really interesting) plot point. To kill her off-screen now would be terrible. I agree that Jesus wouldn't be part of the mutineers. He has no beef with Rick. Rosita would have been a better choice.

This whole Savior / Negan era was a tremendous stretch of the comics and disappointing stretch of TV. IMO, the stretch of comics upto the Whisperer "fence" was the worst. I really hope, for once, that the TV show is significantly altered.

Spoiler: show
While it's rumored that the Whisperers are not the next enemy, I'm guessing that was the Whisperer herd. I'm also guessing those stain-glass windows were Whisperer boundary markers - one pointed east/west and one pointed north/south. They were way too random to just be there. The final battle was in sight of the Whisperers and on their lands.

I just don't know how I feel about the finale. The whole Maggie/Daryl thing at the end, are they setting it up for Rick to split off and have his community now away from Maggie? Didn't something like that happen in the comics? The Oceanside thing was dumb, and seriously throwing a helicopter in two or three episodes and not addressing it at all is really fucking dumb. I liked the Dwight/Daryl scene though, thought that was cool.
