Yeah.  I agree with Maggie -‘should have let Negan die.  When you have the snake cornered, kill him.  Now she is going to lead a faction against Rick.

Yup, the scale of Negan’s crimes are beyond forgiveness and he will always be a threat.  I can understand forgiveness and amnesty for any of the non-psycho Saviors though.

Although Rick has some leadership abilities, he makes lots of mistakes.  (Which of course leads to some good drama.)  If his goal is to create a more just world, perhaps a Rick-dictatorship is not the best solution.  If he wants to keep his people unified, it’s probably time for a more democratic/committee approach, as was done for a time at the prison and at Alexandria when Deanna was alive.

I was a little puzzled by the last scene with Maggie when they were discussing going against Rick; Jesus was in attendance, and up to this point he has been making a case for mercy/non-violence.  It also seems quite out-of-character for Maggie to act in a conspiring manner rather than out in the open.

Her hatred for Negan for murdering Glen is overpowering.  It consumes her, and she has this sense of justice that is being denied by Rick’s mercy stance.  She was willing to play along while the fight was going on, but once Rick let Negan live, it was all over.  That is what pushed her over the edge.  I’m not sure about Jesus and Daryl in this scene.  I wonder if Jesus is going to rat on Maggie. And Daryl let Dwight live, so I’m not sure what his beef is with Rick.  It’s confusing.

I think you’re right – Maggie’s been pushed over the edge.  The simplest solution, rather than some secret plan, would be for Maggie to just take matters into her own hands and kill Negan.  (But simple solutions don’t provide interesting plot lines.)

I don’t think Jesus would rat on Maggie as they appear to have a special connection/friendship.  (I initially thought it was romantic before LJ pointed out he’s gay, which I missed.)  I think Daryl let Dwight live because he recognizes that Dwight has remorse and did try to make amends, but still wants him gone because he can’t forgive him for killing Denise.  As Daryl is more of a ‘pragmatic’ type, I can see how he’d agree with Maggie about Negan.  Perhaps these three together would be the best leaders, which I guess is the point that’s being pursued here.  But, yes, it’s confusing.

I guess we’ll just have to wait-and-see, again, and so will have to continue to tune in even if we find the time taken to resolve some storylines tries our patience.

Jesus and Maggie - I guess there’s an historical precedent for that!

It’s time to wind it down. Kill Negan, let Rick pass away, let Maggie and Carol take over the new world, where men will be emasculated and women will torture us in their own special way.

Okay, the two primary alpha-males can go (definitely Negan) ... but we gotta keep Daryl and I don’t think that he could be easily emasculated.

Take away his motorcycle and his crossbow, and he’s just a drone.

Granted, the crossbow and motorcycle make him especially cool, but he’s also the strong, quiet, bad-boy-but-actually-nice-guy complicated type ... who’d want to change that?

The season premier was OK. Not sure it lived up to the hype.  Also a bit clumsey introducing the storyline about the horse boy getting killed. Maggie is a pretty brutal authority, as shown by her hanging that dude.

Yeah, this episode didn’t live up to the hype.

Agree, Maggie is getting hard.  I can understand that in such a world they might be forced to be brutal in dealing with dangerous people, but at this point when they’re trying to build a society, they could at least have a semblance of a trial or something.

I think this episode was giving us bits and pieces to show that dissension is brewing in several corners, and to look out, battles to follow.

I like the romance with Carol and Ezekial.  And seeing a bit more of the old Daryl.

And where did all the horses come from?  There were a couple of previous episodes showing horses which didn’t end well for them.

The horses magically appeared. Also, did you recognize Ann, the Garbage Queen, with longer hair? Quite a transformation. She spoke in a full sentence once.
