Why do they do that. Nobody cares about a side character who hasn't been seen for 9 episodes having an entire episode. Talk about filler.
I think eventually all the non-savior groups will make an alliance and take over. Probably 2.5 seasons from now. Until then their character and group build up is pretty bad IMO. I mean, an episode featuring Tara?! Fist bump, yo! *cringe*

Watched the latest episode and it had a few moments I liked. One thing I do enjoy about this season is bringing more people into the show that is interesting trying to figure these new groups out. What is not interesting is stretching this season out once again with all the main characters that are left.

I still have 5 episodes left to watch on Fear The Walking Dead and I am enjoying that show way more than the last couple seasons of the TWD (seasons as a whole because TWD does have some great episodes they are just spaced out way too far apart).

Finally, a normal episode without these full episode "vignettes" or personal stories. Hopefully, TWD never goes back to doing this hour long one character story arc again.

Well, I have to assume the Tara episode was setting something up that will be important. The people she came across seem like they went up against Negan and they lost all their men to him. Seems likely that they will help in some way to take out Negan and his empire, and they have weapons. That needed some sort of set-up but yeah it's not the most exciting episode.

I don't get too bothered about what the show does it's good enough to want to keep watching for me.

Latest episode was pretty good and I can't wait to see where this is going.

I am in agreement that all these single character or single story within the story lead up to a bigger story. I, as I think most other viewers fell, would have liked it if they broke the story up into timelines rather than whole show character pieces.

That's really early to set up taking out Negan. He's confirmed for next season.

I don't know anything about how the comic story goes or look for information on that as to avoid spoilers so probably any guesses I have about what's going to happen could sound really stupid.

So Negan won't meet his fate for a long time, interesting....

I don't read the comics either and everyone knows how I hate spoilers.I saw it everywhere this past weekend and thought everyone knew since it was everywhere. JDM confirmed it in an interview. I disnt think he was getting taken out this season anyway. JDM is too awesome of an actor to only get one season.

Yeah I figured he was going to last the entire season at the least, probably a cliffhanger in the last episode and they take 2 or 3 more episodes the next season to wrap it up and move on (or end the show, I dunno, they all gotta die at some point I'm assuming)

Should just be an hour of Negan making fun of fat people

That was a great episode. I didn't realize it was the half-season finale until looking it up afterwards, gets me every year.

Now all I got is Vikings and The Grand Tour :(

Good mid season finale I liked it. Negan and his crew has been a great addition to this show. For me the weak episodes this season have been the episodes that do not have him in it.

Ratings are getting pointless though due to streaming

Was told last week's episode was on of the worst and I didn't see it. This week's episode was pretty average to me. It's become a show I don't have to watch every week. I'd be content just waiting until the season is over.
