Coming up: comic book and tv show spoilers. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read on.

Not having cable at my house is the coolest thing that could have happened to me, and not just because I don’t watch hours of CNBC’s prison shows anymore. It’s because now, every Sunday night I have a Walking Dead date with my mom!
Tonight we talked a lot about the episode and about what we think is going to happen upcoming. I thought I’d share some of our thoughts.
On The Voice On The Walkie. First off, the end of the episode. I definitely just thought it was Rick on the walkie talkie, no big deal, until Mom was like “Oh, that was Glenn,” and I said, “Say what!?” and she rewound it twice. lol. It was nearly impossible to tell, but she said until she finds out otherwise, she’s positive it was Glenn. And it does make the most sense. Rick would have said more than just help, and I think, knowing what I know about the new group from the comics, they aren’t the type to cry out for help to get people to come to them. It’s just not their style. But we do know, from what Rick said to Jessie, that he is hoping for Sasha, Abraham and Daryl to come back to Alexandria and lead the walkers away, so I think it still could be Rick as well.
On Sasha & Abraham. Also comic book stuff, I’m pretty sure Rosita and Abraham’s relationship gets a little bit tricky when Abraham starts getting with another woman. And it really did seem like Sasha was considering Abraham’s proposal when she looked away from him after his not so subtle come on. But I think it will take a long time before Sasha and Abraham are back in the safety of Alexandria and in a place where she could take him up on the offer. I don’t think they’re going to be scrambling around fighting walkers and stop for a kiss. Also, did anyone else notice Sasha stopped wearing Bob’s jacket? #SonequaHadHerBaby.
Daryl and the Insulin. Totally cool that he took it back to them, right? Totally lame that the girl died anyway. #LookAtTheFlowers
On The New Group. They weren’t wolves, no W’s and they had guns, so comic book fans unite, it’s definitely Negan’s group. I know because one of the guys said, “he likes his ass to be willing.” Negan has something of a harem of women, that’s their ‘payment’ for being part of his group. So that’s what that was about.
On The Pacing. I feel like this will be an episode that, even though everyone on Twitter is saying it was just a filler, will be really important to us once we learn more about this new group. All of the stuff these new folks were saying that just seemed weird and cryptic is going to make complete sense.
On Abraham’s Weird Language. It just bugs me. He’s like an odd cartoon to me.
I think we’ll get a Glenn reunion either in the last episode of this half season or the first of the next. I think it will be with Sasha, Abraham and Daryl and I don’t think they’ll make it back to Alexandria for a while. I don’t think Morgan will get exiled next episode, that is just too far out there, even for New Rick. He hasn’t done anything that wrong. I think he might die though. He’s too much of a moral compass. I don’t think it will be until next half season though. But someone has to die, it’s what they do, either in the second to last episode or last episode of each half season. And we have a mystery guest on Talking Dead next week, which ultimately could mean a show death. Something kind of makes me think Tara, I don’t know why, but it’s just a weird feeling I have. Mom thinks it could be Deanna, and I think that could be the case knowing what I know about the comics, and also, since we saw so much of her journey in the last episode.
I like charts, so I’ve compiled a list of second to last or last episode deaths in all the seasons just because I want to prove my point about how the show rolls. Here it is:
- Season 1: Second to last episode: Jim. Last episode: Jacqui.
- Season 2a: Last episode: Sophia
- Season 2b: Second to last episode: Shane. Last episode: Patricia and Jimmy.
- Season 3a: None! Unless you count Penny in the last episode. But I don’t really.
- Season 3b: Second to last episode: Merle. Last episode: Andrea.
- Season 4a: Second to last episode: Hershel. Last episode: The Governor.
- Season 4b: Second to last episode: Mika and Lizzie.
- Season 5a: Last episode: Beth
- Season 5b: Second to last: Noah. Last episode: Reg and Pete.
- Season 6a: ???
Note: that’s 6/9 second to last eps and 7/9 last eps, so pretty good odds they’re going to keep at it, I think.
Okay, I think that’s all I’ve got. If the episodes keep at the pace we’re at, we have a great two weeks ahead of us I think!
Don’t forget to be awesome,
