Brutal episode, but then we knew it wouldn't be a walk in the park. As for Negan eventually getting his, if they follow the comic he doesn't. At least not in the manner we have in mind - a slow painful death. If I was Rick & company and captured him I'd chain him to the back of a car then let Maggie, Sasha and Rosita take turns driving/dragging him over the back roads for several hours until Negan was reduced to hamburger! Other than that let's keep thinking happy thoughts!  :laugh:

Great episode it was easy to predict who die with the comment about taking it like a man but I didn't see Glen going out specially sensed he had just come back from being dead or at least we thought he did

I think it was all part of their plan to lull us into a false sense of security. "They're surely not gonna "kill" Glenn, again, right?"

It was pretty horrifying. Hard to watch actually. Negan sure knows how to play the psychological game as well as use physical intimidation. Not an easy thing to do to get Rick Grimes to concede. Like you said Mike, now it's just a matter of time before Negan gets his but I think that's going to be a long time from now. Fans are really diggin' Negan thanks in large part to Jefferey Dean Morgan. Interesting factoid from imdb, he played an uncredited role as Bruce Wayne's father Thomas Wayne in Batman vs. Superman.

And Lauren Cohan "Maggie" played Martha Wayne in same scene.

I fell for it that for sure I'm like really the anxiety episode of the walking dead a whole episode to wait to see who dies

Well, I've seen my share of "horrible" things in horror movies over the years, yes I have, I haven't watched Walking Dead with every episode but, this one took the cake.  I can safely say, that this type of "brutality" left me sick with anguish and disgust, never thought this would happen, took me by "gut-wrentching" disguise, almost couldn't watch it, way beyond brutal violence, to the "n-th" degree, had to watch the "after-show" talk to be relieved, even if it was for only a little bit.

While the episode was undeniably brutal, it must be said that the show has always been brutal. We've seen walkers get their heads blown off, smashed in and decapitated. We've seen Hershel get half decapitated and his leg chopped off. We've seen Noah eaten alive. I think the real issue with S7E1 was that  for the first time we see our protagonists completely helpless as they underwent Negan's brutality and psychological torment.

Last night's episode was a nice - and much needed - change of pace. I took an instant liking to Ezekial, and think he will quickly become a favorite character.

Much as I wanted to see what happens next, for Rick and that group, this was a welcome relief.

I loved the way "Zeke" is sticking it to Negan, by giving them pigs full of zombie meat!  ;D

Another good episode. I also took a shine to King Ezekial, one thing I like about this show is how they often introduce a far-fetched, almost daft character (Michonne and her sword and leashed zombies/Morgan with his staff) and then make them plausible with a back story. This season is going to be a belter!

Though I really like Negan, I would hate to think this entire season will deal with the emasculating of the good guys. This seems frustrating to have to have to sit through.

(This) seems frustrating to have to have to sit through.

It is! You just want somebody to grab that bat and beat his brains out (literally)! Hopefully, they will keep the show interesting till that happens.

Anybody know what's happening in the comics? Not that the show is, necessarily, going to do the same thing.

Really didn't enjoy the last episode. It was excellent as usual with regards to acting, writing, suspense and what-not but it was hard watching the gang get bullied for the best part of an hour!
I can't stand Negan, to me he's just a slimeball with no redeeming qualities, and his sadism cancels out any charismatic likeability. But he is the ultimate bad guy.

I've read the comics, and if the season unfolds in more or less the same way then we're in for a treat!

I really enjoyed episode 3, and was beginning to like Dwight before his scumbag antics in ep 4. (I understand he is acting that way under duress). I loved the opening sequence, there's never a bad time to hear A Town Called Malice!

Is anybody going to mention how hot Maggie looked in last night's episode? I can't wait for her to unleash her badass side. I just wish she wasn't pregnant. The Zombie apocalypse is no place for babies.
