    I may take a while to compile my thoughts.

    I have a migraine, so I can't really elaborate but I give it a 5 or 6. It was what I expected...misery/torture porn.

    Hey ya'll!
    Not sure if it's denial or anything. I'm just not sure how I feel about this season. Is that normal?
    My opinion of Daryl is for another forum.
    I'm honestly disappointed. I knew who was going but there's still a few things that should have been tightened.
    More than anything I'm underwhelmed and the only thing that fully grasped me was the Carl/Rick scene.

    I haven't been going through spoilers. Hopefully, my fellow fans here can tell me there's something to look forward to...Anyway, hope everyone is well, it's been awhile since I've been on this forum. I'll come back through season 7/ Just not sure I'll be watching every week.

    Negan was extra. A little to cartoonish.

    Honestly, it was an OK episode for me. Would have been much better if the death was shown in the season finale. I guess we got a 2 for 1 deal Abe & Glenn die.

    I will say that the bright spot was Rick breaking down at the thought of cutting off Carl's arm or risk having everyone else die. Beautifully acted by Andrew Lincoln snot and all. I knew that Carl wasn't going to get his arm cut off because that would have been overkill with two deaths already in the episode.

    I do blame Daryl for getting cutie Glenn killed off cause he should have remained seated. It would have just been Abe if Daryl had just sit the hell down. It wasn't time to play hero or protect damsel in distress just cause Negan was antagonizing Rosita. Rosita at one point looked like she was smirking a little bit, I don't know what that look was for, but okay. I thought Negan was gonna kill Rosita.

    I do feel bad for Sasha & Maggie because they have lost so much. Sasha with losing Tyreese & Bob and now the guy she was starting a relationship with. Maggie losing Beth, Hershel, Otis, and now Glenn. They can't catch a break.

    The guy Simon (I think that's his name) who told Negan what Daryl's name is. I'm gonna forever remember him as Trevor from Grand Theft Auto V. It's going to take a really cool minute for me to erase that character from the actor.

    Abe I could have cared less that he died because I didn't like it and knew he would be one of the victims. No more Glenn, that's so sad always enjoyed watching Glenn on my screen. I'm so happy that it wasn't Michonne who people were speculating was going to be and happy it wasn't my Aaron.

    First thoughts? Very underwhelmed (as I unfortunately expected to be). Some good moments and performances for sure. But the episode kinda of dragged to me at times. Ugh.... Still trying to process.

    I gave it a 5 and I might lower it. It wasn't worth the wait or the CH.

    Andy gave a fantastic performance and so did Steven for that moment and Lauren at the end. Still don't know how she didn't pass out. Also LOVED how strong Carl was and Michonne's breaking for Carl.

    I kind of liked the ending with Eugene/Sasha/Rosita carrying Abe. I feel his death was tacked on to salvage the CH damage. But I'm glad those three did it together.

    Negan is over the top and has to die. Not sure what Gimple was going for. Morgan's cell will be unacceptable to me.

    I gave it a 6. The deaths were gruesome but the violence towards Rick to show how big and bad Negan is was just over the top. JDM was too over the top for me.

    Thoughts off the top of the dome:

    I thought the moment between Sasha and Rosita was WONDERFUL. I thought it'd be awkward. It wasn't. The hand hold over Abe's lifeless body ALMOST got me.

    Maggie has moved up to my second favorite female character right now, after Michonne.

    "Suck my nuts" cheapened Abe's death to me. It annoyed me.

    "Dream like sequence" was utter bullshit. The end. Though the end part was nice.

    CR is amazing. He was soooo angry as Carl. I loved it.

    JDM was super over the top to the point that he was annoying af. Idk if he's that good of an actor. I just thought it was... bad.

    It's NOT like Harry Potter. NOTHING compares to that.

    More later =]

    I gave it a 7. I thought it was a solid episode with good performances from AL and JDM. Negan is over the top - but I think that's the thing with him - he's disturbingly eccentric in the way I would expect from the character. AL expressed the barely contained anguish and rage I believe the other characters and many in the audience felt. I hate that Glenn is gone.

    That said - it did not in any way justify the cliff hanger.

    After being thoroughly disappointed in season 6 (a season where I only liked 6 out of 16 episodes) I am shocked to say that season 7 is off to a fantastic start. This episode was a 10 for me, mainly because for once in many seasons TWD did not drop the ball.

    - TWD capturing the emotional moments and allowing them a moment to breathe so that they can have an actual affect, something that we, the audience, haven't been given a chance to experience since The Grove.

    - All of the emotional gut punches. I did not believe that I would care if Abe died but I did ( and he went out like a Ol G triple Ol G!) and of course the heartbreak that was Glenn's death and the little glimpse in to the future. TWD actually pulled it off and I had my doubts.

    - Everyone's portrayal was Emmy worthy IMO, specifically Christian, Sonequa, Lauren, and AL. But bravo to everyone!

    - The ramifications that this episode will have for all of the characters in the future. The groundwork was laid really well.

    - Finally having a suspenseful moment where you don't know what will actually happen. I really believed that Rick would have to cut off Carl's arm. I hope we get more moments like this in the future.

    - I'm actually excited again about what is to come for TWD.

    There are more reasons why this episode is a 10 to me, but these are just the ones off the top of my head.

    I change my mind and giving it a 5. I was able to tweet, post and bitch all while not missing much. Lol. The dream sequence was just messy.

    I think I hated it. I'm not sure yet. I know one thing tho....I don't like JDM as Negan.

    I gave it a solid 9. I think it really set the tone for the rest of the season.
    It also really solidified Negan as a real threat to the group and really shook things up within TF.
    This ep was an emotional free fall and I'm still processing it!
    Seeing Rick this fragile was extremely hard to watch but it was also needed because of the direction his character needed to go. So, overall beautifully painful start!

    AL's acting was again..just mesmerizing. LC, DG and SW was also superb as usual!

    Those moments between Maggie and Sasha and Sasha and Rosita was so needed and extremely touching!

    I think what SY said about Glenn dying in a very "Glenn way" was perfect. Maggie was his heart and reason for living and she also became his comfort in death with "I'll find you".

    Carl also really stood out this ep. He was so brave and fearless. I hope we see a lot more of him!
    Carl is such a dynamic character and doesn't get enough praise.

    I enjoyed it. I gave it a 10 bc I was hype. I'm very angry tho at negan so he did his job right. I'm mostly very sad for the group.

    7 seasons in and pacing is still an issue.

    Actors once again saving the script.

    Didn't meet the over the top hype and will be interested in what the media reviews for the episode will be like.

    my expectations need to be more realistic
