Regardless of my past gripes about this season, I have to admit I liked the last episode .. having the "girls" get out and actually try and do something, at their own peril, was nice ..

The talk here about training folks for "taking a knife to a gunfight" .. well, hand to hand combat is a good first step, and I was under the impression these folks had to start somewhere, I thought fire arms were pretty scarce these days .. it's been at least 50 years since I went through Basic Training, but I'm pretty sure that's where we started ..

I do think, however, the shot should have been taken .. Mark Wahlberg would have ..

If Sasha ends up on the outs, I'll miss her ..

It's the same shtick that Lindelof and other Lost producers were pulling, to pad out seasons until they reached their target. So a lot of backstories over and over again.

If they decided to go to all-out war right away, instead of having each character deliberate on whether they're going to fight -- like they have a choice -- they could dispatch the Saviors story in a few episodes.

But they want to milk it so that is why we have this mess.

When they finally defeat Negan and the Saviors, what's the next villain, El Presidente?

They don't give up after the first failed opportunity and bum rush the bad guy. Chicks, often so impulsive, just rushing in without a plan. Can't see that going well.

That and if Miguel Bain leaves his post because things are taking too long, Robert Rath's lookout Electra might sneak in and steal Bain's weapon.

We see Negan, then someone takes a shot, and then fade to black for 6 months.

Maybe not a bad guess on that .. I'll say, we see Negan in the cross hairs, shot taken, fade .. then Chris Hardwick comes on and it's "Wow, this may be the best season finale ever, we want to hear what you have to say, and tonight, our guests are the One And Only, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, etc etc etc ..

At least it hasn't deteriorated to the level of a CBS show... Yet.
Yes, you can find it on the Internet. Gale Ann Hurd specifically said they are aware of the criticism that the show was to violent and she said in the later episodes they would address this and turn down the violence. She went on to say that most of the episodes were done so it would not be until the last part of the season.
