    From what I saw, the Sanctuary looks exactly like the comics. It reinforces my feeling they are reserving the grand tour for Carl. The focus in this episode was on Dwight and Daryl's relationship, not quite a proper intro to the Sanctuary

    Yeah, I gave it an 8, but downgraded it to a 7 because I am not happy with Negan's depiction so far

    It makes no effing sense for Daryl to be there. It should've been Carl.

    I may be setting my expectations too high, but it just feels that way.

    One shallow note: What are Negan's standards to hotness? Sherry and Lisa are beautiful, I cannot deny, but "super hot"???? Lisa had a childish body/face, Sherry is, imo, a little bit too slender. If he was talking about Paula and Chelle I would understand...:denise:

    I wonder what will he think when he sees Michonne, Sasha, Rosita, Maggie and Carol up close. TF women are hotter than his "super hot" examples.

    I mean it's all subjective and I wouldn't read too much into it. To most American males she is a catch. Some men like that and don't think she's too slender. Not every man desires curvy or thinks it's a must. They may also like other types too. To me, Paula wasn't all that. I dunno. I wouldn't judge too much what any man is suppose to find "super hot." It varies and we aren't them to understand.

    I'm gonna rate it a little better than most of you seem to be rating it. It was 5/10 for me.

    I went into it expecting the worst after reading your opinions, but while I wouldn't say it was a good episode of TWD, I enjoyed a few moments. I mostly enjoyed Dwight's stuff and I like that they seem to slowly be setting up his future struggle, even though at the moment he seems to be completely loyal to Negan. I also feel like Negan wasn't as over the top as in the premiere. Some of the stuff with the women had me like :dale: but overall I feel like the writing for him wasn't terrible (maybe the language he uses would be more of an issue to me if I was a native speaker, but I'm not so :denise: ). I also enjoyed Sherry's role and I hope we see her working against Negan in the future. I really feel for her, the situation she's in is totally fucked up.

    Daryl, well... first off, I really didn't need to see him naked. Second off, how stupid is he? Did he really think that guard accidentally left the door open? And then when Sherry warned him... he really is immune to good advice, isn't he? I rather enjoyed Dwight telling Daryl that he got Glenn killed.

    Oh yeah and that "Easy Street" song is in my head now :lol:

    Overall I think it was the weakest episode of this season so far to me, but it's still not quite as bad as the likes of "Still" or "Slabtown". I'm really looking forward to next 2 episodes though.

    Yes, to the hotness aspect. I know we are in the apocalypse and everyone looks a mess...but I mean..."super hot"

    Also, really, someone wrote "super hot" in the script for Negan. I am assuming they wanted to say fucking hot but couldn't. I have issues with the dialogue for this episode.

    I hope so, but I am NOT setting my expectations high. Was that Dwight's personal room? Was it Negan lounge...this Sanctuary episode was used to show us that world but it showed very little. Not nearly as detailed as "the Well"

    It won't surprise me if Negan tries to get Sasha, Michonne, Maggie, or Rosita to "marry him". He hasn't seen them when they're fixed up and not emotional. Carol too but he wouldn't wanna marry her cause I'm sure Carol would shoot Negan before they even consumate the marriage.

    Now when is Jesus coming back to grace my t.v. screen dammit?

    Well, I think any of them would make his other wives a widow if he tried. But yeah, where is Jesus?

    Negan should've asked Daryl himself about more brutal ways of torture. :denise: Remember Randall?:gareth:

    So i just watched this episode again with my sister, and it improved for me on rewatch. Still the weakest episode of the series so far though. Negan's dialogue.... I just... no. What grown man says "super hot" so many times in one sentence, he sounded like a horny 15-year-old boy! They really need to improve his dialogue because he is annoying the shit out of me right now. It feels like they're setting up Dwight to rebel against Negan, with that conversation he had with the random saviour he killed - (obviously not an exact quote) "a big guy comes in with a baseball bat and a smile and we give him everything?!" - Indeed! Anyway, I rate this episode a 6.

    It didn't feel like a mercy killing to me. Mercy killing (to me) would mean doing it in such a way as to prevent one from turning into a walker.

    Guys, did anyone notice I called Sherry's sister Lisa? :lol: :lol:

    I think her name is Tina.

    I think that's what it is I don't like the way Negan is being portrayed. He's too over the top. Being over the top is not necessary his brutality speaks for itself

    I like this post so I thought I'd respond to some of your points...
    • Nude Norman - I am not mad at Mr. Reedus' biceps.
    • I agree this sort of ep is a ratings drag. I wonder if NR's massive fan base showed up? Does anyone know what the rating were?
    • Yep - the sneak peek was more riveting than anything that happened in 7.03. But, I'm totally biased....so...
    • Daryl can grunt in the background and show off his guns - and his fans would be happy. If maybe they had him bathe or something, that too would be appreciated.
    • I wondered the same about Sherry? WTF? She didn't seem to have much to do. I was bored for her and with her.
