On Talking Dead, they mentioned something about feature length films being planned for the franchise- which are supposed to feature Rick, wherever it is he ends up.  So even if he's not coming back to the main series, at least his story should be resolved.

I feel sorry for Michonne & Daryl, but this is one of the best TWD episodes in awhile.

Maggie surprised me here.  I thought she was going to clonk Negan to death with that crowbar, but sometimes words can be a better weapon.

 

I wonder how these AMC Original movies for Rick will end. Like will he die, or will it be open ended with an eventual return to the show?

I didn't even know The Walking Dead was still a thing. Thought it pretty much died out a few years ago.

 

A lot of these hour long dramas start to lose their luster after the first 5 or 6 seasons. I felt the earlier episodes were better, but some fans will probably still say it's still worth watching.

 

Don't really care at this point, I'll just watch the episodes on the internet anyway at some point.

I felt a lot better about the episode once I learned about the films.  The idea that they'd leave Ricks future open-ended in the way that it looked like they did didn't sit well with me at all.

 

Works out nicely for everyone... Andrew Lincoln gets to spend more time with his family like he reportedly wanted (since it's probably easier to allocate time for a few movies than it is to be available for 9-10 years of a perpertually evolving television show), AMC gets more Walking Dead to push, and fans hopefully get a more adequate resolution to Ricks story.

I'd hope that he lives & is reunited with his group someday (maybe in time for the show's series finale, whenever that may be?).

Just saw 9-06, "Who Are You Now?".  This picks up right after the time jump, with the group that Judith saved being brought in.  Michonne is taking over for Rick, & has to decide whether or not to admit them.  Even without Rick, TWD is doing fine.  I'll keep watching.

 

Spoiler

A woman is crying for help in an alley.  Henry takes off to save her & Carol follows... this turns out to be a trap!  Jed & some of the Saviours ambush the 2 of them.  He wants Carol's ring along with some other stuff.  Henry gets hurt trying to fight back, & Carol turns that ring over.

That night, the Saviours will meet their match when Carol pays them a visit.

 

Near the end, this one brings another meaning to "Talking Dead".  Just 2 episodes are left til the mid-season finale.

Daryl's dog has to be my favorite addition to the show... Like ever.

Yeah, I was so glad to see Dog.  I wouldn't mind seeing him kick some ass also... maybe go total Shiva on a Whisperer or two.

Do not kill Dog, damnit! 

 

What's with the X-shaped scar on Daryl's back (& also Michonne's)?  I heard a walker growl that sounded like "Let's get them!".  Shit's probably going to get real next Sunday before they go on winter break.

Some of the walkers acted a little different in the mid-season 9 finale. A few of them seemed a lot smarter.  Yeah, something serious goes down near the end.

Spoiler

One of the walkers really wasn't that at all.  When was the last time you saw a walker grab someone's sword & stab them with it?  As Daryl rips the face off one of the dead walkers, it comes off like a mask, & reveals a human's face.  The Whisperers have shown up & Jesus is their first victim.

Just saw the mid-season premiere of TWD & it was good. 

Spoiler

Daryl & his group encounter some Whisperers then wipe them out except for a teenage girl who surrenders.  She's Lydia.  Later on after being locked up, Lydia was interrogated by Michonne & Daryl.  With her being a tearful wreck, they couldn't get anything worthwhile from her.

Negan goes home to the Sanctuary & whistles that Saviors song.

 

Michonne will be a recurring character in season 10 rather than a regular, & that will be her final season.  I am bummed.  Please do not let her get killed off... when she leaves, have it be because she's gone off to search for Rick.  Hopefully in one of those feature films they'll be back together.

 

What if some of the Alexandrians tried dressing in walker skins to confuse the Whisperers?  Just wondering.

In my opinion it was a pretty boring episode, especially for a mid-season premiere. Negans parts were the most interesting ones but the rest didn‘t tell you anything. I would have been glad to something more about the Whisperers for example finally Alpha.

Is it just me or does having a southern accent make Alpha a lot less badass?

 

And why the fuck did they take "Lydia's being raped by every guy in their group, we absolutely have to protect her" and change it to "Lydia is being hit with a stick, we absolutely have to protect her". Like... What?

 

I love the Whisperer arc, and I still have high hopes for it, but it's off to a rough start lol

Haven't read the comics in awhile, but sounds like your typical "toning it down" for TV. Not the first time the show has done this.

Yeah you're right about that. Judith still being alive is a good example of it lol. Just seems to cheapen Lydia's plight a little bit =/
