    Negan's the best. I just hope we're getting more of him in the TV show than in the comic.

    I hope so. The show really needs a protagonist to step forward and be the focal point. Daryl is better as a secondary character and the same for Michonne.

    The season is great so far, with last week's (11/06) my favorite.

    Yeah, the episode airing tomorrow night is awesome. Negan and Beta = Love. In fact, I'm going to rewatch that montage now.

    Tonight's (Tomorrow's) episode was pretty good, but every time it jumped away from a Negan scene, I found myself getting annoyed.

    Yeah, it's a definitely set up episode. It sets up some pretty big things, actually, for the next few episodes and beyond this season. Negan and Beta definitely steal the show though, you're right about that.

    Spoiler:
    It seems everyone is getting sick because of what Gamma was doing and it's their water source that's getting them sick. I'm not sure if it's enough to kill those who are sick or if it is just a measure to weaken them and it's more like when Gabriel got sick from wearing the guts. It seems whatever makes people sick with the walker bacteria works more like venom than poison since infected weapons killed people, but getting in you in other ways isn't a death sentence. But if it is fatal then it's going to get pretty interesting in the next episode or two. And if it is fatal, then it's interesting that both Ezekiel and Rosita both have life threatening illnesses right now after they both survived the pike deaths they got in the comics.

    I couldn't tell if the set up with Eugene/Rosita and her not returning to the radio later was to make it extra sad for Eugene if she dies or if it was merely a way to be disappointed before essentially meeting someone new on the radio and getting over his infatuation with Rosita. It could be either one right now, or both.

    Also I'm quite enjoying Dante on the show. He's in a different role in the show than the comics, but he definitely has a very similar personality...in many ways he's a good natured version of Negan by talking too much, taking the piss too much, and being generally gregarious.

    I really enjoyed the mid-season finale. A lot of people seemed to be underwhelmed because it was a midseason finale. That leads me to not being able to understand the mindsets of people. For years, people complained that the structure of TWD meant you only had to watch episodes 1/8/9/16 and everything between the premieres/finales were just filler, and it's bad that they save all the big events for those four episodes. So now we have a relatively quiet mid-season finale that accomplishes quite a bit by wrapping up the Dante plot, setting up a Gamma turn, establishing a new character and Michonne's direction, and we get a nice little cliffhanger at the end with our heroes in trouble. I thought while not a great episode, it did everything a mid-season finale should do in wrapping up some plots, introducing new stuff, and leaving us with a pressing situation to be dealt with. I think a lot of people were expecting a major event to happen in the mid-season finale (comics readers will know what I mean). I'm glad it didn't happen though because that should be given some room to breathe. Hopefully with a little remix of events that event will still come as a shock because even comics readers won't know when to expected it, but for all we know that event simply won't happen or it will involve other characters.

    Father Gabriel killing Dante was absolutely awesome. He stabbed him like 25 times. I loved it. Makes me wonder if Gabriel is going to end up dying in the second half since he's sinned now. Walker Siddiq looked great. Now, I'm not sure how far in advance Kang has conceived stuff, but in the Season 9 premiere when they go to the Museum, Siddiq has a run in with a walker with a bunch of spiders that come out of his face. We see in Season 10 that his panic attacks show a spider that was in the barn quite often, and the spiders came out of the walker, similar to how Dante's true nature came out...I wonder if it's just a coincidence or it was foreshadowing, either at the time or retroactive foreshadowing.

    All in all, Season 10A has been a home run for me. A lot of people aren't super engaged in it, but it's a major slowburn storyline going on now, similar to how most of Season 9 led up to the pike deaths. It's been a half-season of set up and I expect the next half-season to have tons of payoff. I'm extremely excited for it. Judging from the preview for what is to come, they are remixing events quite a bit, which I'm perfectly fine with. Most of The Whisperer arc so far has been totally remixed while telling the same core story.

    I was just thinking about who might die in the back half of season 10 and, if they follow the comics, there should be at least 3 significant deaths, but I imagine on the show we'll see at least 5. Some characters on the show have already outlived thier comic counterparts time with The Whisperers. Some are nearing their deaths. Some key deaths in the comics have no true equivalent so a remix will definitely be in order. But it got me thinking that by the end of the season...and it's crazy to think it...but Negan could be anywhere between 5-8 of the longest-surviving characters on the show. I figured I'd just make a little chart showing the casts current longevity. Of course some characters (Rick, Maggie, Morgan, Dwight, Sherry, Jadis) were written out of the show without dying. I also left off Oceanside since they're rarely in the show. To be honest, I can't even remember the two main girls names...



    Season 1


    1. Daryl

    2. Carol


    Season 3


    3. Michonne
    4. Judith



    Season 4


    5. Eugene
    6. Rosita


    Season 5


    7. Father Gabriel
    8. Aaron


    Season 6


    9. Negan


    Season 7


    10. Ezekiel
    11. Jerry
    12. Laura


    Season 8


    13. Alden



    Season 9


    14. Earl

    15. Magna

    16. Yumiko
    17. Connie
    18. Kelly
    19. Luke
    20. Lydia
    21. Alpha
    22. Beta


    Season 10


    23. Gamma






    To show just how much the show has changed, here is the order when Season 9 started (below). From the top 15 longest lasting characters, the show lost 6 of them in Season 8 with 4 dying and 2 being written out while adding 10 new characters during Season 9. When Season 10 started, only 7 pre-Alexandria characters were still on the show and only 8 pre-Negan characters remained, compared to 10 pre-Alexandria survivors and 14 pre-Negan characters at the beginning of Season 9. As it stands now there are 13 post-Negan (debut) characters (not including minor characters) on the show compared to the 8 pre-Negan characters. Just under half of the longest surviving characters on the show going into Season 10b only debuted since the Season 9 premiere.


    I'm probably the only person here who finds this interesting, but man, the cast turnover in the past two years has been quite insane.

    I don't know what happened to that post above. Some weird things have been happening when I post things with enters that don't appear while writing the post show up. Weird.



    We're less than 6 weeks away until The Walking Dead returns so I wrote up a preview for the year coming in the world of The Walking Dead
