    Interesting are we thinking the same thing here, the final statement on the face of it seems pretty much like Eugen has chosen to side with Negan and give him the ammo needed to finish Rick's group off. On the other hand he did spend an awful lot of time detailing how easy it would be to sabotage the ammo, seems very unlike Eugen to do that given that he is clearly a pathological coward who is only doing what he can for his survival. It would be a nice redemption for a character who was one of my favs in season 4 and 5 but who I have come to hate over S7 to the point that I wanted Daryl to put an arrow in him and be done with it in the last episode.

    Eugene did stop Negan from using Sasha as a weapon against Rick last season. Now, I find it strange that he would put Father Gabriel in charge of sorting the bullets. What would happen if Gab coughed on or did not sort the bullets correctly?

    Season 8 final, Wrath all-out war left me disappointed after the 2 seasons buildup.
    Also, did Rick even bother to discuss with the Hilltop and Kingdom how best to punish Negans for his crimes.

    Well they sort of followed the comics with this conclusion... but let me tell you, the comics did the whole Negan War a hundred times better (and I'm not even exaggerating). It's sad because JDM is a great actor, but he couldn't portray Negan properly (it's not his fault, language censorship and bad writing). As a fan of both TV shows and comics I have to admit that quality dropped dramatically in this season. Horrific writing, pacing, nonsensical plot lines and holes, characters vanishing for no reason for several episodes. An last, but not least, way too much annoying political BS that was definitely not as visible in the early seasons, but I guess this comes with the times we live in.

    I'll give AMC a break this time though, because I love The Terror and think it's a brilliant series that they came out with this year. So they CAN put out quality content when they want to.

    Do not forget that it was Darryl's little outburst that got Glen killed. The fact that no one else seemed to have a word in Negan's punishment did not sit well with me either. Maggie though has been allowed to stew on all the events without any kind of counseling. That completely explains why she is mentally off the rails at the end. How can Jesus go along with all that? He is the one who is always fighting for a more humane way when treating others that have wronged you. When will all of Carl's letters be handed out?

    But still, Negan done away with all deals when he arbitrarily introduced Lucille to Glen and big red headed dude, Abraham. Automatic dealbreaker, die on sight.

    Abraham got it because he said one had to die and if everyone sat there and just accepted it for what it was, no one else needed to die. Darryl pushed back and that set Negan into motion to select another person to send the message home with. The fact he came out of the shadows backing Maggie...he has been unhinged ever since his brother sacrificed himself to save him.

    What I do not get, The Governor was put out of everyone's misery, what makes Negan so different that allows him to live? Both characters are bat sh|t crazy in my books. The Ricktatorship begins to show its imperfections.

    Look out for Maggie, the one that is the most driven! Plus, think she has Darryl’s loyalty.

    Is it though, remember have a little think, WHO actually killed The Governor?

    I don't believe Maggie, Daryl and Jesus are planning some coup or doing something to Rick and Michonne, I just think they are going to want to kill Negan. The issue comes down to how big a show they want to make of it but more importantly is what Rick's reaction is to it. If his reaction is a shrug of the shoulders kinda try to stop them but let them have at it then fine, my fear is that Rick is going to go full Rick and suddenly do everything and anything to protect Negan because 'that's what Carl wanted' even at the cost of breaking apart their long term group.

    What I am hoping is that S8 to S9 will have a similar time gap that S3 to S4 had, the first episode will show the communities rebuilt moved on, doing stuff together but more importantly giving a chance for that massive F OFF heard to now be a real threat. Would love to see a season that returns to zombies being the big threat again.

    Oh and yeah Eugene's a good guy again :)

    Darryl pushed himself into being taken prisoner by Negan. Lucille upside Glens head was more bat-Sheed crazy to me.
    I consider Darryl kickin Ricks asss as a vote of no confidence in Ricks leadership.
    The Govs hands on Ricks throat.

    I hear ya TLM, First Maggie needs her closure, regardless of what Rick wants.

    Eugene is still on my collateral damage list.....

    Yes, with fast forward - luckily with subtitles on my language. Too boring on real speed...

    I hear ya bro, I use that that code to jump forward 10 secs all the time when it gets bogged down with “Carl” letters. Yes Carl walked on water but Carl got his dumbazz bite. Let us move on and not look back. A “Whole Bunch of Loved Ones Have Been Killed”. We miss them all, some more than others, (i.e. Glen, a whole lot more than Carl).

    TWD had much worse seasons than 8th. Those other were not only poorly written, but boring to point that one could watch 1st 2 episodes and last 2 episodes and no story or action would be lost.

    Thus the code that jumps 30 seconds on your Comcast remote and back 10 seconds at a time to find the new starting point. Honestly, without the this I would not watch any tv. When the sponsors cram in 3-4 minutes of commercials and producers load in 3-4 minutes of "OH worries Me" garbage.....where is my bottle of scotch and my handgun?

    The worst is when it appears to / seems like they jump to commercial right in the middle of a sentence.
    It's why I never watch anything in real time any more.

    Not really an issue here in the UK, we get it on FOX over here, 3 adverts per broadcast with the adverts usually cutting in at pretty logical times, no odd cut offs or break ins. Then again they did censor the Season 7 intro episode, specifically Glenn's bit after Negan goes batty on him, where he turns to Maggie and does his best 'HEY YOU GUYS' impression. They also cut the scenes showing Negan getting bat happy on what was left of Abraham.
