Do we still need to specify no comic book spoilers? Has the show diverged so much it doesn't matter any more?

I am going on the assumption that if you're reading this you've watched the first episode of season 6... Spacing just in case.

Anyway, that sure picked up in the middle of stuff, didn't it? I really like the image of the sea of dead shuffling around in the quarry, every so often squeezing one or two out of between the trucks to go out and terrorize a little. I saw a couple of them falling down a sort of sand dune to one side-- pretty neat.

Nebbishy guy who faces death, gains new confidence and dedication, then gets eaten immediately? Nice 10-minute character arc, I guess.

Who's running a siren in Alexandria? One of the kids? Kid whose dad just got killed is going to be trouble. Nice that Carl gets to hold hands with a girl, but that other kid is gonna mess them up somehow.

I wasn't sure about this season, but I think I am now looking forward to it. That crowd in the quarry at the beginning is pretty big, though-- they're gonna have to pare it down some to get to a good-sized ensemble cast where viewers can keep track of the characters, so I expect mass carnage next episode.

i felt so bad for eugene when he got caught overhearing that conversation! i usually don't really have strong opinions about him, but yikes.

the ending with the siren was really well done -- my stomach actually dropped when it happened.

I'm happy that Heath made it to the show. I was afraid that they cut him because the cast was so big. And I already love the guy!

Carol's conversation with Morgan had me cracking up, and she didn't once let her guard down.

Excited for next week.

SPOILERS!!!!!!



Well you know, Nicholas fell on to of Glenn, he would have fallen on top of Glenn and have been eaten first. His guts would have spilled all over Glenn and zombies don't bother people with guts all over them. Those intestines were pretty high. lol so in denial.

I am mad by the way they took him out. Why couldn't it be more like Tyrese or Bob, quietly succumbing to his injuries surrounded by friends? Or quickly like Beth? He didn't deserve to go out like that with Maggie never knowing what happened.

A lot of people are claiming that Glenn is still alive. Saying that TWD never was one to hold back the gore and if it really was Glenn they would have made it unquestionable. The theory that scares me more is that Enid took Judith to the Wolves and that is why that one Wolf had a jar of baby food in his pocket.

I was told to watch the final scene of Glenn being devoured from above. It looks like his head disappears under the dumpster. He wasn't in the TD memorial nor was Steve Yeun on Talking Dead. That's a little strange. Not even an interview. I'm holding out hope.

(But there are still people who claim that Beth is still alive. The theories are wild! Check the Team Delusional tag on tumblr!)

Hmm. I will hold onto a shred of hope based on this evidence.

I have a super small/the very tiniest shred of hope, but really I think they are just toying with our emotions. As in, if he somehow miraculously doesn't get chomped on through Nicolas (if Nicolas is indeed on top of him, as it kind-of sort-of looks like upon repeated viewings) & survives, he will just be killed shortly thereafter. Like they did with Beth. You know, just to fork with us and tear our hearts out, too.

I know, I know- it's just a TV show. But Glenn!!!!!!!!!

But I would be very happy to be wrong about this.

Next week is going to be a 90 minute flash back with Morgan and how he came to his philosophy. Some people are upset that it is taking a break from the story line but I do want to know his story. And Lennie is a good actor, he can pull it off. A lot of people were frustrated with Morgan in 602, and I do agree that wasn't the time for a debate on whether or not to kill the wolves, but I don't think his philosophy is completely worthless in that world. I just hate that the moral compass always has to die. Maybe it will be different with Morgan? (Not holding my breath)

I think they took it because it's food and they were hungry, and it's very dramatic.

And yeah, I think Glenn was covered up by dead Nicholas and got a nice closeup of feasting zombies, but will somehow survive...

My 4yo has been playing with my walking dead figures. He sets up walkers vs human fights. The day after last episode he put Glen on the walker side. I think he is onto something. (he doesn't actually watch the show) I think Glen is bit but will get out somehow.

I'm still laughing about Morgan asking Michonne about his protein bar. If I remember Clear correctly, it shows her eating one.

Morgan is pretty cool. I enjoyed that episode a lot, especially that they extended the circle of compassion to include non-human animals. I felt so bad for Tabitha.

I wonder, though, whether he has doomed Alexandria by sparing the injured Wolf.

I thought it sounded like Rick, but I hope it's Glenn, too!

Woot!

Too bad about those guys who stole Daryl's motorcycle. Will we find them eaten next episode, or will there be some sort of on-camera poetic justice? I don't think he's just gonna shoot 'em. That's not really his style for that sort of thing.

Zombies under melted glass was pretty cool.

I just listened to this episode of the Imaginary Worlds podcast:

http://www.imaginaryworldspodcast.org/z ... erapy.html

In it he points out that it's the people who retain the most of their humanity that end up eaten, and as soon as I saw that the three escapees (sex slaves I'm assuming?) were trying to get away with insulin, I knew that at least one of them was going to get et soon... :/
