    I like it too, because it makes this world more realistic and I know that vengeances will be in full swing during AOW.

    I'm ready for TF to come back in attack mode.

    I love TWD, so I like seeing what is happening with all of Rick's group. The story is definitely different since the loss of Glenn and Abe. I even understand why--after a lot of consternation and wringing my hands, I understand why. A "reset" was putting it mildly. This is complete rebirth...in TWD world, it is "coming back", but not as the dead walking, but "coming back" to life--a real life. No longer just surviving, but, as Rick said, "getting to live," as Abe said "making the world safe again for that little one(s)", as Glenn said , not " letting the world die", "living because they can't"...the ones you've lost.
    You guys, you know, when we, (at least me, lol), thought Glenn was dead and they put his name on the wall...if I'm remembering right, Maggie marked through it. I'm sure it has been added, not to be marked out this time, along with Abe's. Rick is hurt and very afraid, but he is going to remember. Remember his friends, Glenn and Abraham, remember Dale, remember Beth and Andrea. He was all ready brave enough to mention/think of Shane. He will remember Lori, he will remember Hershel and all the loved ones they have lost. Then, when he remembers how hard they were all fighting to stay alive so they could live, he will know. He will know that to have a life , not "some kinda life," but a real life, like he was holding in his heart, the life in his vision/dream, he will know he can't let all those they have lost, die in vain. Let the ones they love deaths be so they can kneel to Negan? Not possible. Live in fear of losing someone else to a man that sees no difference in the living and the undead, who bludgeons the head of a living person just as nonchalantly as that of the undead? That would dishonor their lives, their sacrifice. Rick will think of Hershel living under a man like Negan, of how Dale would think it his duty to stand up to Negan, even if it meant his life, how T-dog would think giving in to Negan was helping him hurt others. He is going to remember that Sophia and Beth could be forced to "choose" a life as a Negan "wife," if not to Negan, then to some other man not of their chosing, that boys like Duane would think Negan's way was the only option. Rick will remember. And, he will know that living under those circumstances is not living, is no better than being a walker. I am seeing now how the themes of the past seasons are leading to this new direction. Now we will see what kind of Next New World there will be. Team Family started out, from the very beginning, working to have a real life, building a life for each other. They would sit and eat and talk and sing, communally--together, around the fire. They would gather and reflect about the day, think about the day to come. I think there is a scene, maybe sometimes, two, every season of them close together around a fire (correct me if I'm off base). Very symbolic of home and family and community. I don't think even fear of Negan's savagery will be able to snuff out that fire. That flame burns in all of Team Family, but Rick's fire is what sparked it for the rest. That fire still burns. It may only be a low glow at this point,embers, but it could never go out completely. I look forward to Rick and Team Family showing Negan the error of his ways, of offering him an alternative for his wrongheaded ideas, bringing him to a place of correction. In short, beatin' that mofo like he stole something. I had to remind myself, even if it doesn't look like it or if it takes a really long time, the good guy always wins. And, Rick is the "good-est" of good guys.

    It doesn't seem like Negan has control of all his people. When Simon went to the Hilltop I think he told his men to load Negan's truck and then load the other truck which is probably Simons truck.

    Also why does King Ezekiel's men still have their guns yet Negan took away everyone's guns from Alexandria and why don't Negan's men visit the kingdom directly. They meet the king outside of the kingdom. Has there been a side deal made without Nega's knoweledge.

    I was wondering something about Michonne and Abe talking at Deanna's welcome reception. Was that supposed to be a wake up for Mich? Abe asked her what has she done and her response was not enough for him. I felt like he was asking her what has she done to make life. Like "what are you doing for you?" :unsure:

    I wish this would play during the Mid-Season Teaser Trailer that comes out in Jan/Feb. How epic would this be?!?!

    Oh this SONG! It's perfect and has me all up in my feels again!!:gabe:

    I've re-watched the last minutes of the msf at least 10 times because I am just overwhelmed with a resurgence of feeling for this show and why I fell in love with it in the first place. Rick has risen from the lowest he's ever been and he has the woman he loves, his equal, perhaps even his better, at his side. And the family is together again!!! So much love between these characters. Validation, forgiveness, comfort, it's all there....always has been and always will be.

    I have a great deal of hope for the back eight, everyone. They're going to figure out how to beat Negan. It won't be easy. They will stumble, they will falter but they will always....RISE UP!!

    That was a great mid season finale. Like I said in my previous post, I think 7B is gonna be even better. The last 10 minutes of the episode were especially incredible and showed me why I love this show; it's the characters, especially our main crew.

    Dumb ass Carl pulled a gun on Negan. That's why Alexandria had their weapons taken away from them. There was an agreement made at the beginning of the deal with the Kingdom that the drop would be made off site. Ezekial doesn't want his people to know that they are living under a tyrant..
