    Wow, thought we got a fair bit of Alpha in the flashbacks, we still only got little glimpses of the current Alpha at the ends of both episodes. I don't mind waiting another 7 days to see her real debut. But I like the decision to build her up through Lydia's story, as it developed her quite a bit. Alpha doesn't really get much of a backstory in the comics so it will be nice to see her character fleshed out more in the TV series. I can already tell Morton is going to be great in the role. And I liked how they were Lydia's flashbacks, and how we got conflicting accounts in the flashbacks...part of it the narrative Alpha force fed to her, and part of it what really happened.

    The writing has been pretty smart too. I liked Tara's no nonsense 'it's dangerous out here, we're going back and we're going to plan and think' approach. I liked that Magna didn't want to leave after nearly screwing their chance completely in Alexandria. It makes sense Magna's group would want to go find their friend, and it made sense they'd realize it wasn't smart to be out there, and it made sense a guard would be looking out for Magna's group to do something since they haven't fully earned trust yet to bring back the two sisters who stayed to look for Luke. And it made sense that The Whisperers would use them to track down The Hilltop. I don't mind characters making stupid decisions, especially emotional decisions, so long as it doesn't feel forced for plot reasons.

    What I liked most about this arc in the comics is the slow burn, and even when an event happens, there's another slow burn to the next event. I was expecting the end of this episode to be the end of the premiere, but I'm glad they held off. They're taking their time, establishing the new characters.

    A few comics panels...again, I wouldn't search for Alpha, Whisperers, Lydia when it comes to the comics. You will get spoilers in the google image search But I won't post anything unless it's happened on the show!






    All the interrogation stuff on the show was much better. More time to work with. As good as the comics are, few scenes really get the room to breathe. Also how ironic is it that Jesus interrogates Lydia in the comics lol. Maggie too at the end of this issue!





    Cool little comparison of the end of episode 909

    I'm hoping we get to see these weirdos becoming a formidable foe. So far, I'm not getting it.

    Especially coming off of a few seasons with Negan's crew where we saw a well-armed, well-coordinated group of people.

    15 of them show up at your door with knives. Mow them down with your guns and move on with your day. What am I missing?

    You'll get it by the end of the season. But it's a much different story in how it plays out than against Negan's group. Don't forget The Whisperers have Alden and Luke. Killing these Whisperers would be killing them, and starting a conflict. Which wouldn't be smart, especially when they know nothing about The Whisperers, what kind of weapons they might have, how many might be out there. For all they know they're surrounded by hundreds of them. Their conflict with The Saviors started because they were stupid and thought the satellite outpost was all of the Saviors. The Whisperers ain't to be trifled with.






    Those Alpha flashbacks were great in how they messed with the viewer. We see the father being crazy and cutting his beard while Alpha held Lydia and she had the tattoo, but in reality that was Alpha cutting her hair and her father holding Lydia, and he had the tattoo, and most of those flashback scenes are mostly the indoctrinated lie Lydia had been fed, which is why the part about her father singing to her so she wouldn't be afraid is the only part that didn't sound like bullshit to Lydia, because that was actually her recollection of events, and not the lie force fed to her. At first I thought the change in Alpha was just too quick, until I realize what they were doing.

    Fuck 'em.

    I'd take her daughter and slit her throat at the top of the wall. They started this shit by killing Jesus.

    The guns seem to have mostly gone away. They are using more knives and bows and swords than ever before. I'm not even sure I remember a single bullet being fired since the time jump after Rick left. I know Judith has a gun but I don't think she's used it yet.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    She fired at Negan as he was riding his motorcycle towards her.

    Yeah, guns are definitely in shorter supply at Hilltop. I imagine they're reserved for emergency use only. Eugene is the bullet maker and with Alexandria being isolationist, I imagine they're hoarding a good chunk of the ammo.

    This little clip from an early scene of next weeks episode has me hype.

    This season has been the best for me since VERY early when the show started. I’m excited again for each week. I was away and just had time to view it and LOVED THIS episode. I always said the Walking Dead could have gotten rid of a lot of filler by doing “a la Lost” back stories as I think they serve so so much. Even could use Fear characters too on some of them to make people hyped. I think it was a missed opportunity on their part. Either way, would love to see more of it.... cannot wait to finally see “Opie” from Sons of Anarchy too. He was one of my fav from that show. Keep it up Walking Dead.... your killing it and I hope word of mouth brings some fans back!!

    Agreed about Ryan Douglas Hurst! He's outstanding in everything he does. Really liked this character in Bates Motel as well.

    We might see Hurst Sunday. If not, next Sunday, I'd imagine.
