Apparently stories of twd and ftwd are going to cross in next season of fear the walking dead.

I think they said it was just going to be

Morgan

showing up. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense for him to be so far west of Georgia at that time period. Abraham would have been a better choice because it was at least established that he came from out west.

I dunno about that.

 

 

Morgan is at least 100% guaranteed since Talking Dead confirmed it.

 

 

Also, the crossover is going to be after the war. Apparently the ending of season 8 is going to shape his story arc for Fear, so no need to worry how he went from Georgia to the West and back again within a year.

I feel like that was as good a send-off as they could have given Carl. I still vehemently disagree with the decision to kill him off though. Negan and Judith in the garden made me chuckle.

Quite why they decided to do what they did, I don't know. Audiences need a speck of light and good humour in an otherwise grim show so they don't completely tune out. Removing that just makes everything pointless, it removes any investment I might have. If it's the final season, and that's the point? Fine. The Sopranos did that very thing. But this isn't the last season, and with what they've done I don't feel like watching any more. It just comes across as cruel, intentionally battering the audience over the head with how hopeless and pointless everything is.

I mean, sh*t, throw us a bone here!

Who knows, maybe it's the one decision that ruined the show for good. From now on, the show can't follow in the footsteps of the comics anymore. It's completely it's own thing from now on. I can't possibly imagine how this decision should pay off, especially considering a Season 9 is coming.

 

If S8 was the last season, that would've been acceptable and a good twist before the ending. But now it just f*cking sucks and turns people off.

the only reason they killed carl off was because chandler riggs had a disagreement with the producers. it should've been Judith instead. it still would've been sad but they killed off the biggest co star on the show. they had him survive getting shot by a hunter , almost getting raped by nomads, getting shot in the eye and two brushes with negan just to kill him off.

Wasn't it because Gimple wanted to fix the plot hole in the comic about

 

Rick going from "kill kill kill" to sparing Negan?

 

 

Anyway I read somewhere that they won't kill Judith because of Audience Induced Apathy, good things need to happen to the characters and Judith represents those good things supposedly.

Who the f*ck cares about Judith? Seriously?

 

 

Of course, she's cute and all that but she is not a character that people watch the show for.

it always has been. anyone who has/is reading the comics and watching the show know this. Obviously there's source material, but it has been its own thing for a while now.

 

Really weird killing off Carl. I know a few people who "are done" with the show. I've invested some years into this show, and no matter how bad it becomes I'll still be watching it to the bitter end. Really interested to see what happens with Morgan and Rick this season... honestly thought that Morgan was going to bite the dust, but we shall see.

I heard Lauren Cohan is possibly leaving the show next season, which would be disastrous considering her role in the next story arc. This could quickly become a dumpster fire without Maggie or Carl next season.

If this does indeed happen, I hope

they just stick with the peaceful aspects of "A New Beginning" next season and wrap the show up. The Whisperers arc isn't all that interesting to me and I hope they skip it.

Pretty sure I read somewhere that Kirkman was talking about integrating that storyline...

 

But, really, they keep doing this - poaching story-beats from the comic, and cramming them into current events. It's kinda frustrating, because then they have to turn around and repeat 'em in the show, so you get that drama with the guy chained in the shed in season two and then again when the comic moment finally makes it to TV, Jesus in the shed in whatever season that was; the same dilemna. If you've read the comics lately you'll know that Carl went out exactly like another long term character, far in the future. It's kinda frustrating.

 

I really only watch the show out of obligation now. I mean, it's still more fun than 90% of the other stuff on cable, but god DAMN do they need to stop pretending to be an indie film and sort out some bloody character motivations.

I certainly hope that she (Lauren) decides to continue a recurring role. There was some talk earlier about Danai Gurira leaving the show. Not sure how concrete it is. I'm a bit unsure atm about watching the next season. Carl's fate was a bit unexpected and I was certainly hoping that they'd keep Riggs for another season considering how much his character has faced and survived since the 2nd Season.

with the show somewhat following the footsteps of the comic it's making the whole situation worse. the Story in the comic is on another level, the TV show has its boundaries it can't cross. if only HBO got their hands on this it wouldn't be a problem, imo. but I gave up thinking the show was a direct adaptation during the second season.

 

fear the walking dead is the red headed step child of this franchise and has had a lot of angst with it... and honestly it has surpassed TWD in quality as far as the past season or two goes.

I became an ardent watcher when I had my sister's DirecTV access, and they were DVR'ing it, however, they lost interest but not me. I followed the branch off Fear The Walking Dead as well, but into the third season I lost a bit of interest.

 

I came back here lurking to see if Steven Ogg discussions were up as soon as we saw him appear as a head Savior... I just wonder what happened since no one but me seemed to notice.

It's great casting because he seems to play very close to an alternative (think brother, or just as evil twin) as his persona in GTA5

Oh Trevor's performance it definetly one of the highlights of the last two seasons. Today's episode included.

 

It was probably the best

 

BULL S*IT

 

I've heard in my entire life. Need a short vid/gif of that asap.

Rather odd Simon decided to take over the faction completely, didn't Steven Ogg say that Simon didn't like being in absolute control much? We saw what happened when he tried to take control a few episodes back and that was almost disasterious so I don't know how taking absolute control a second time would change much.

 

I was also kinda bummed Rick didn't get his injury tonight, thought for sure the circumstances would result in it.

This week's episode was pretty solid, but it pains me to know we still have four more episodes to go. They've dragged this conflict out long enough and I'm just ready for it to be over. Sixteen episodes a season is just too many. I'd take 10 good, focused episodes over 16 with a bunch a filler thrown in.

 

 

Thankfully, the battle of Hilltop looks like it will come into fruition at the end of next week's episode, meaning we're reaching the finish line. I can't wait to see the look on Negan and Simon's (assuming Negan doesn't kill him for his disobedience) faces when they realize Dwight is the traitor. Oh and of course the final brawl between Rick and Negan. Just wondering if we'll have the time skip before or after the season is done. I hope we at least get Negan's speech to Rick about how he's only keeping him as a live prisoner so he can point to someone "worse" than him.

By the gods, the writing in e13 was terrible. I didn't expect to be this disappointed.

 

 

 

- Simon blindly walking with the entire army into an obvious trap. Slowly walking towards the house and giving away his position by whistling. Are they really that stupid? It wouldn't take a genious to see that it could be a trap. It's just hollywood bullsh*t at its finest.

 

- The hilltop trap was a massive failure anyways because apparently nobody at hilltop ever held a gun before. They had the entire f*cking group surrounded from every side with no cover whatsoever. But no, they decide to f*cking blindfire into the air. They could've easily killed the entire group.

 

- of course, all important characters leave without a scratch.

 

- "well, we have a bunch of wounded that could possibly die and turn into walkers from the wounds, but f*ck it. Let's just leave them unguarded. Who cares if their condition worsens?"

 

- "I agree, while we're at it, let's just leave nobody out on patrol. It's not like they could come back to kill us while we sleep or the captured saviours could escape or anything."

 

- "Nothing like a deep good night sleep after a massive bloodbath! I never slept so well in my entire life!"

 

 

 

 

Honestly, it was all so f*cking dumb. I wish I would've known sooner and didn't need to watch it.

I don't mind filler as much as others. Never read the comics so I don't even know exactly what filler is and what not lol. I'd defend the last seasons of TWD where others hate on it but that last episode has to be the worst episode I've watched so far.

^The whole thing with the Saviors attacking the Hilltop and them using the car headlights is straight out of the comics. The walkers getting the jump on the Hilltop I think was less dramatic in the comics. I'm genuinely worried they're not going to be able to wrap up this whole war in just three more episodes. Negan needs to come back asap.

 

And I would recommend you read the comics too, they're really great. They have about 90% of the issues released thus far available in three "Compendium" collections that have 48 issues each. I have them all and now I'm patiently waiting for them to release the fourth.

Yeah, everyone who read the comics can't recommend them enough. I really have to get started someday, maybe once this season is over. I admit though, comic books were never my kind of thing. I never went through a comic before, with the exception of those from children's magazines from when I was a kid.

 

E14 was very good. Morgan, Rick, Negan and the trash lady had some serious character development going on. It was a joy to watch it.

Finally that savior guy is dead and suffered a horrible death. He got what he deserved.
