The Walking Dead Spoilers


I blame the script writers of The Walking Dead , for when it suits Kirkman's narrative, they allow the characters to assue new directions of behaviour and motivation that often don't make any sense at all  to the die hard fans who have followed the series from day one.
I understand why they do it.....they have to manipulate the story into areas that only make sense in the comics.........and the  comics are more suited to teenage geeks who love the salacious...the scriptwriters forget that ........the tv series are for a more sophisticated audience! 
So in East  we have almost all of the  alpha characters outside the soon to be besieged Alexandria. 
Daryl is off on a somewhat perplexing revenge raid followed by Glen, Rosita and Michonne . The newly pacifist Carol is cornered by another ( yes another) group of Saviours and spectacularly has to  kill again ( and gets injured in the process) and Rick and Morgan leave a near defenceless hometown to go and retrieve her......
Oh and Maggie gets pregnancy pains which means ( with the timely death of the lovely Denise) that a trip to see the hilltop doctor may be in order...........and .............Daryl definately gets shot! 
The scene has therefore been clumsily set! 
All of the main characters are out! And at the mercy of the new uber villian Negan who is set to appear in the finale..........with his overblown and silly barbed wire baseball bat in hand....

  1. Totally agree w/you John. And it makes no sense for so many of the main characters to be running outside Alexandria. They are not that stupid, but the writers make them so. Think that this is the last season for me.

  3. I thought they had Negan in custody at the end of the previous episode. did I miss something? and...spoiler alert...I read that the actor that plays Daryl won't be on the show next season. in an interview he said he had had a great time but was looking forward to new projects. so take that for whatever you think it means cause I won't say it but if it happens, that me be the end for me. they could get rid of Rick first as far as I'm concerned. but then I kept expecting Abraham to get killed this season from something I read previously and he's still around. but yah, all the soldiers are outside the walls.

  4. I do not watch the WD but I enjoy reading your reviews. I read another blog that sometimes does not agree with you so it is fun for me. I always like your review the best.

    cheers, parsnip

  5. I agree with you John. It was another episode where we watched and kept saying ' They wouldn't do that '.

  7. I'm lagging behind this season, but I don't really care -because of what you've said. They're following too closely with the comics and as a result the plot lines make no sense in the context of the last several seasons of character development. It's also annoying me that they keep talking family planning like it's a thing 3+ years into the apocalypse. Unless there's a good witch doctor in the group that we don't know about, Maggie shouldn't be the only one who's pregnant. And why are they still not clearing buildings completely, as in taking all supplies, instead of just the things they need right now. Had nobody watched "I Am Legend" in TWD world?
