Man, I think Michonne and Negan are gonna make short work of the Saviors.  But they might be shot in the end.  It will be interesting to see!  Negan must die!

I have to say I am pissed that the contaminated weapons thing really worked.

 

But it shouldn't really be a problem right? Now they know, they are protected, they can put down the sick and get on with it.

 

Rick isn't ging to die, at least from the shot, because he isn't burning up at all.

If anyone has ever read that comic the same dam thing happens when people infect the weapons with contaminated blood.

Good issue. Loved the Eugene bits and the Hilltop figuring out that those slashed are contaminated. Poor Nicholas. LOL does this mean we'll finally get some Paula/Mikey development?

 

 

Also damn at the Alexandrians going down hard. Heath, Aaron and Olivia being the only semi important ones left??? I hope the 3 of them stick around for awhile. 

 

I wish they didn't have so many gun battles for the simple fact that it's fucking ridiculous that Negan NEVER gets shot. Literally everyone around him drops like flies yet he continues to be untouchable.

I wonder how many bullets Negan has dodged so far. I know it's been a handful of times.

Eugene was around pre-ASZ

Imagine a group of a hundred motorcycles driving down a freeway. Eventually, they hit a junction. One road goes northwest and the other goes northeast. So one guy, we'll call him S, says, "Let's go northwest!" A mile past the intersection, a semi careens into the group and kills ninety of them. Ten are wounded, but they survive and keep going. Eventually, they hit 10,000 miles. S suddenly has his consciousness thrown into his past body right before the junction. Now, he says, "Let's go northeast!" All 100 bikers survive. Happily ever after, right? But what about the ten, no nine, who went northwest and survived? What happens to the reality they were living? Does it just disappear now that S has changed the past? It's not like only bad things happened on that 10,000 mile journey. Maybe one of them fell in love with a gas station attendant and got her pregnant or maybe one adopted a homeless kid that joined the adventure. That 10,000 mile journey would be full of stories. Romances, farewells, friendships...the loss of those ninety lives is horrible and unfortunate, but what would rewriting their history mean? The nine who survived lived full lives and did the best they could with the hand they were dealt. How could it be right to just erase all that? Isn't that worth something? Is there a point to a world where everything is happy? Are people who struggle for a better life just idiots? Being human is about fighting even when it seems hopeless and finding happiness in a world that hates it. Are you saying that's worthless?

I'm pretty sure in this case "Alexandrians" refers to the characters who were first introduced in ASZ, so the main group who came with Rick (which includes Euge) doesn't count.

What about Barbara? She's an Alexandrian and she's probably the most complex character in the entire series

I'm not sure if the fact that I don't even remember who that is makes your joke more or less funny.

... he saved Carson, Holly, Mark and the 3-4 other people with him, Euge is a hero!

 

Holly is dead. Negan sent her through the gates of Alexandria as a walker with a something tied over her head. That chick looks like Holly, but it isn't.

I don't know. I wrote a zombie story before and had contaminated weapons and I've never even read Cross. Once you realize that a bite turns people and a lot of people's weapons are getting contaminated, it's not hard to think of the next step in which a character actually uses said weapon

Beautiful actress indeed. That was one awkward scene though, the director was probably like "we need to show her boobs at least in one scene... so *spoiler alert* lets have the main character guy who shes at war with bang her! cool! boobs! yeah! haha

 

(     o     )(     o     )  WE REMEMBER !

 

Never forget.

Makes sense 'cause he's basically calling her fatass every opportunity and she takes it. She was smart to him once or twice and he let it slide...
