    Father Gabriel is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. Who'd have known? I love it when I begin hating a character and then I end up loving them. His development has been truly beautiful.:gabe: Please, don't kill him, Gimple.

    He's such a boss the way he came out of nowhere :lol:

    And I love that he's playing calm preacher, and Negan has no idea he participated in the raid.

    Keep the Gabe goodness coming.

    Gabe was straight BOSS with the Ninja moves. He scared the ish out of Negan when he basically apparated out of thin air. That was funny and he creeped Negan out. And he was so calm in his demeanor, while fabricating the Maggie lie. Quick thinking as he wiped the dirt from his pants. And his chat with Rick, lending him his support, and trying to look at the brighter side that "things will better", his "you are my friend" line to Rick and then the ultimate, 'I believe in Rick Grimes", :gabe:. The feels!! I so enjoyed his.budding friendship with Rick since Glenn/Big Red are gone and Daryl MIA. The posse of Rick, Aaron and Father G is giving me life. An alpha straight male, a gay alpha male and an AA priest who is bringing the righteous alpha male in a sheeps clothing. All so different. All boss in their uniqueness. Oh, I am so here for this beautiful trio of men and warriors!!

    To think I was NOT feeling FG at all in the beginning, but he is definitely becomimg a fave with this nice character arc. SG was awesome!! :gabe2:

    Gabriel was an MVP in "Service". Him creeping up on Negan was hilarious and made me laugh. His quick thinking spared Maggie from being the new object of Negan's revolting attention.

    Mine too. I never would have thought it after what he did in season 5.
    I really did enjoy him in last nights episode.

    I was going to start a father Gabriel appreciation and then I saw this one so I will just post my opinion in here. I have grown to like father Gabriel even more. He is a quirky odd sort of individual, but when he becomes passionate about something he really becomes passionate about it. Now he is passionate about being part of Team Family and keeping them and the Alexandrians safe both physically and spiritually.

    I like how in the beginning he disliked Rick and TF and didn't trust and care for them much, But now he loves TF and Rick. FG has like a" Rick is the Messiah" complex. He now has unwavering faith in Rick and would follow Rick anywhere and believes Rick is the answer to saving TF and Alexandria.

    I like that Father G and Rick are homies now. The fact that he's a priest will come in handy at Rick and Michonne's wedding :lol:

    Gabe is looking at him like "how are you related to Deanna?"


    And the first gif looks like the face Rick made when he saved Spencer from the herd.

    Gabe and Rick were meant to be bros :laugh:

    I love Father Gabriel. He wasn't in with my good books at first, given season 5. But since he has been trying his best since he figured out that he was truly sorry. He started getting in my good books when he was talking to Carl in season 6, JSS. Then when he took Judith to protect her, that was so ... I have no words. Then when he finally killed his first ever human, I knew, he was willing to do whatever it took to protect his family, his friends, his community. I love him.:gabe::gabe2:

    FG is cool in my book. Like most, I didn't like him whatsoever in season five. In fact, I remember being distinctly PISSED with him when he turned on TF and ratted them out to Deanna. I'm protective of Rick like that, lol. But he's clearly realized the error of his ways, so since about mid-season six I've been a fan. I will never not think the scene of Gabriel quoting scripture and then taking out a savior is bad ass. It was for sure a highlight of his character. I also really love his scenes in Service. That moment where Negan calls him creepy is hilarious.

    So, yep, I'm all for more Father Gabriel. He's now part of TF as far as I'm concerned.

    I used to despise Gabriel. My boyfriend and I dubbed him Judas. I especially wanted him gone when he went behind Team Family's back. But since then, he has proven himself to be a great asset and friend, and I really like him now. I'm glad he's made such a huge turn around and his budding friendship with Rick makes me smile. I hope he continues to make us proud and lives a long time. Welcome to TF Gabe. :holdheart:

    Old Father Gabe has really come a long way. Initially his scary cowardice left a bad taste in my mouth...but as time has progressed and I've begun to disassemble my self righteous soap box....I'm getting the why behind him. In a zombie apocalypse who wouldn't lose their $=÷×????
    The test of a good man of a righteous man is his positive progress and Gabe is on a great arc UP!!! It was magnificent how he countered Rosita last episode...I really wanted him to Drop ths mike on her behind....but he's practicing real humility....you go Gabe...that's whats up
