Except for that :) I am inferring from what we saw of the Kingdom that the only reason it continues to exist is because of some level of protection by Negan. They didn't seem particularly adept at...

Interesting philosophical question - if paying tribute to Negan results in implied protection (even if he's a psychopath and his henchmen are mostly a bunch of jerks), why wouldn't you want to buy...

There's a song on the new Pixies album called "Baal's Back" - very timely :)

I guess. Seems a little hokey as the final stroke of a grand plan dreamed up by the ancient Master of all immortal vampires seeking to extinguish the human race :)

More terrifying than having the city already overrun, on fire, and evacuated? Ooooh, so scary to take the bomb on a ferry :D (Not to mention - who was driving that ferry!)

Why the need to detonate at the Statue of Liberty? Why the need to detonate at a specific time? How does having 24-hr nighttime for some brief period of time in one small part of the world become a...

I love this show, but the season finale was simply, enragingly stupid. The Master's final plan was to smuggle two nukes over from Egypt so that they could blow up the Statue of Liberty? Really? This...

I would argue you don't need, or necessarily even *want*, the creative guy being the execution guy. They are two very different skill sets, and in a lot of ways they are mutually exclusive.

Its not clear to me if they are looking to be the Browser (ie. Netscape) or the Portal (ie. Google or Yahoo). Hopefully the 4th season brings with it the realization that the latter was the truly...

Remember, this is an "Amusement Park", and one that clearly only people with significant means can attend. This would naturally tend to cut down on the number of homicidal maniac guests.

Think of a modern analogy - US has unquestionable air superiority (and sea superiority for that matter). Does that mean the US does not need a standing army?

I'm predicting there won't *be* an Iron Throne by the end of the series. Heck, there might not be one by the end of the season if the wildfire has anything to say about it.

I wouldn't go that far, but it is a much better season than last season (even with this last episode being a stinker and a couple others being middling).

I am also skeptical they can wrap the...

Correct me if I'm wrong - I believe they did get the Tully army? There was a shot of them marching out right near the end. I am assuming they got them just in time for the battle next week :)

That's not what happened. She said that if he attacked the castle (and the Tullys) she would be honor bound to defend it. He did not attack, they surrendered - there was no reason she couldn't have...

They had safe passage. Are we to believe Jamie granted her a one-way pass? If he did it would make the tower wave that much stranger. An extremely silly episode, to be sure.
