    There was no battle whatsoever. The Savior's guns blew up when they started firing at Rick's group and that was that. Tara and the all-female group ambushed the Saviors attacking the Hilltop without losing a single soul.

    I was expecting for them to expound more on the reference to the huge "Walker" herd at the end of the episode; that was definitely a Whisperer easter egg I believe.

    While Jesus was possibly just listening to Maggie talk about overthrowing Rick (if that's the case, as someone else said, I think Jesus will play Dwight's role next year as a double crosser) but to include Daryl into the mix and agreeing with Maggie for shock value...makes absolutely NO SENSE when we LITERALLY just watched Daryl let Dwight go in the previous scene....<45>

    I hope he isn't he was the one who got Nick off the dam I just wonder how big of a time skip there was from him helping Nick escape until he meet back up with his family and Strand.

    In real life Maggie would have a baby bump by now, unless she just had a miscarriage but someone said this entire season took place within a few weeks only?

    That herd is an easter egg, some people are saying that The Fear group is where the whisper origin is from?


    apparently Dwight leaving is for the Spin off show they are going to film soon, they are creating another spin off of Walking dead, it will be Dwight going up north to Canada like Minnesota area or something.

    I enjoyed FTWD's episode as well. The only 2 parts I didn't really like was the beginning and the end.

    1) I don't think there was any need to show the entire journey of Morgan for 25 minutes...The convos with Jesus, Carole and Rick were definitely not needed.
    2) the whole human bait in the middle of the road turned ambush is a total trope and if I called it, I would assume the characters in a zompoc would be smart enough to know what was going on.

    From what people are assuming on the TWD discussion boards, they say they will show Salazar mid season to discuss the time jump, Salazar was shot bad in the face with blood oozing out, Im guessing after he saved Nick he got infected from the wound and turned or Salazar went with the Indians and went his own way.

    All I know is he is most likely dead, sad that was the meeting people wanted to see Salazar and Morgan together, I think Gimple wrote Salazar off when he became Showrunner

    one of the first guys who came on the ice to help him was medic during the Vietnam war and knew what to do to stop him from bleeding out. Negan didn't have that type of blood squirting out plus it's twd universe there's a few people who had limbs removed and lived Negan just has a flesh wound.

    You can totally tell the garbage Gimple writes...I guarantee you he wrote the entire beginning of the FTWD episdoe with the TWD character cameos and cringey dialogue.

    they needed the beginning to show how the shows merged, basically they are going to merge Fear soon, with TWD, I think season 10 will be the time.

    Didn't they get massacred by some other group? I swear they alluded to that in a deleted scene.

    Here it is:


    They should have kept this scene in. It would have given a little bit more scenery to Season 2.

    yeah he is the man who single handily destroyed the series, he is a snake, slithered his way from writer to show runner to producer, he climbed the ladder and now is raking in millions.

    Well it was blatantly setup. Watched that episode again before the finale. I just didnt think it would take out a major amount of saviors. That was really a fuck job of a stand off.

    The puke scene, the hiding in the ash, i needed a benny hill soundtrack to get through that.

    So i stayed and watched the premiere of Fear, not watching it since the season 2 finale and i was impressed. I know who lives from s2 to whatever this season is..

    Sorry to go off-topic, but I've never seen Fear and hear it's great. I haven't been able to find the first seasons to watch. Free is preferred, obviously, but any info is appreciated.

    As for TWD season finale, for me it was back to the damned melodrama and skewed characters. The previous couple episodes were bearable, for a change, but now it's right back to season 8 garbage. For the life of me I can't figure why they spent 4-5 seasons developing rich, identifiable characters only to take so many off kilter since then.
