Negan is a banana split, but at least he is having fun doing it.


This idea that everyone eventually becomes a Negan (just depends where on the scale you currently sit that determines how good or 'less bad' you are), is one of the main themes of the show now, but it's just done with zero subtlety or finesse.

The last scene of this week's episode was such a lazy 'Hang on, maybe Rick is also bad! Like Negan! The bad guy!' moment.


Rick turned full bad guy a season or two ago when he (unprovoked) attacked and murdered an outpost of the Saviours. Sure Negan was a banana split with the baseball bat, but in this conflict, there is far more blood on Rick's hands.

Finale:
That seemed pretty amateurish TBH, the fight scenes were awful. It even looked like Tara shot Rosita, lol. The music didn't fit either. The twists came from a mile away, the coffin was a bizarre thing to do and felt like a really contrived "surprise" zombie Sasha attack (another drawn out character death). The Kingdom riding in with the "not this day" speech was downright ridiculous. Still hate the garbage people, why can't they just talk properly? They were unbelievably incompetent as well, they had everyone in Alexandria at gunpoint but managed to lose control of the situation - lolwut. There were so many things that could've been done better. A poorly made finale for the worst season of the show so far IMO, I genuinely loled at the stupidity of it. Walking Dead used to be better than this.

I sort of liked it although I was expecting far more casualties in Rick's group, the fact that only Sasha died was a bit unrealistic, Rosita should have been killed and probably the useless vicar whose name I can't remember too as they're both awful characters.

Actually laughed out loud at the tiger bit.

Currently 77% on rotten tomatoes for the finale, looks like this is so far the "least fresh" season though not many reviews:

US viewing figures have dropped by a couple of million compared to season 6:

Yes.
Fabian Delph is a banana split.

That was awful. It's remarkable how little plot progression there's been across 16 episodes. Another season of Negan bullshit. :dread:

So, what's actually changed since the start of the season? What a waste of time. At least we had a hilarious gooseberry fool CG tiger moment.

I didn't mind it but this season has gone no where and the finale continued down that path.

Absolute terrible finale :lol:

when the third Abraham flash sideways came one we both said, "oh strawberry float OFF".

The tiger :lol: :lol: so now we've got Stealth cg Tony the tiger coming in out of strawberry floating nowhere :fp: :lol: :lol: How far back did it run from?! All those saviours stood there and not one clocked jar jar binks running at them :lol: Love how Tony also selectively attacked only the saviours and didn't maul anyone else by accident. King Ralf's speech was also terribly acted and completely out of place. You could tell they were going for an Aaragorn BUT IT IS NOT THIS DAY moment, but what they actually got was the first part of this:




Negan, for the love of, just KILL RICK NOW ffs. Just do it. Now. Because now we have the zombie version of this:



did ANYONE actually think Michone died? :fp: :lol:

This strawberry floating show. Litterally a gooseberry fool show.

see you next series

Yeah that was bad.

Those scrapyard people had Rick's entire group at gunpoint but somehow they let everyone get away alive. It was one of the stupidest gunfights I've ever seen.

That tiger came out of nowhere to kill someone who is right in the middle of the action. How did nobody else see it before it got that far!

I'm still not sure if those were flashbacks or a dream but whatever they were it was overused and dull. Seems like the only point of it was to bring back Abraham. I liked that character and the actor but I still didn't care to see him again in flashbacks or as a ghost or whatever it was.

The only good thing I can say is that the tiger didn't look quite as bad as that deer a few weeks back.

It had its moments but too much stupidity and boring nonsense ruined it.

The Abraham flashbacks were dull and were made worse by being dragged out over 3 or 4 separate scenes.

The tiger was hilarious, that's one hell of a well trained beast to know which humans to attack. :lol:

They need to quit the annoyingly obvious "oh gooseberry fool are they dead?!!" bits. When they didn't show her actually falling we all knew Michonne wasn't dead.

Sasha's coffin plan was stupid. "I'll die in the coffin and then kill Negan as a zombie!". Yeah nothing could happen to muck that plan up.

Rosita has still done strawberry float all. Swaggering around with a petulant attitude all season and has done absolutely nothing to show she's a "badass".

Coral should have died. The show is lacking tension with the bigger characters and Coral is an annoying little gooseberry fool.

The junkyard people are awful. Awful. Awful. Hopefully they wipe them all out in the first 2 minutes of next season. Or better yet just forget all about them and never show them again.

Overall it was a better episode than most of the second half of the season. But that's not really saying much.

It was definitely one of the better episodes in the latter half of the season (though not difficult!) there were some really stupid scenes (basically covered by you guys) and other scenes (Like Abe) which were not required/ overly long and drawn out.

For a finale, no. It wasn't very good. No sense of dread. No danger. The only major character to die was because that character chose to. And like I've said, other issues that's been covered by you lot.

I think the only reason why I will carry on watching the next season is that I've invested too much time to just walk away. They need to wrap this up, and soon.

Surely to strawberry float someone in the cast or crew, when watching it back during editing, must have laughed out loud at the tiger attack. Are they so scared of being sacked that they just applaud enthusiastically at the nonsense being served up?

As usual though,I'll watch the next season like the frustrated zombie junkie that I am.
