Excellent. I can't even remember where we left off. What was happening at the end of the last season? :conf: I seem to recall Morgan wanting to bring the group back to Alexandria.

No, he had given up on that. They had just tracked down the warehouse that the trucker had been using as a base of operations, and were going to start looking for people to help.

^^ Ahh yes, thanks.

And I just watched the episode. Apparently, they haven't been too successful helping people. The plane crash was amazing -- these walking dead shows have a way of arranging for cast members to suffer the most gruesome impalements. And now encounters with dangerous people.

The apocalypse just isn't meant to be easy :no:

Plane crash?! :eek:

And impalements? Somebody's dead, I suppose.

Well, I saw the beginning. Holy crap, a plane crash. I think Lucinda is doomed. :no:

Not necessarily doomed. She has remarkable recuperative abilities. :wiggle:

Maybe she's one of those people like Rick, who was made superhuman by the Zombie virus.

Hey, Max Headroom survived the Zombie Apocalypse. It's always good to see Matt Frewer in anything, but I have to wonder where this is headed. He's not exactly Negan-- just a guy who wanted his factory back, even if he is kind of an asshole. I mean, he could have easily negotiated with Morgan.

In any case, this is an interesting beginning to the season, especially given that it started off with a plane crash. I don't know if flying a plane that's been sitting around without maintenance for five years was such a smart idea, but it made for a dynamic opening. And now we've got radiation signs, guys in protective gear, and Zombie fences complete with hanging Zombie heads. Those clicking teeth were spooky.

I hope Luciana doesn't die, but I'm kind of resigned to the inevitable. Most cast members don't last very long in the Zombie Apocalypse.

^Well, she's still alive. So far...

Interesting episode. I like the idea of radiated zombies.

But the highlight for me was seeing Salazar. He was my favorite character back in Season 1. Why he's been AWOL all this time is a crazy mystery.

I've only seen part, but I'm glad Luciana is alive and wants to play the accordion. :lol:

The radioactive Zombies should be interesting. Z Nation did that once, but I'm sure Walking Dead will handle it differently.

By the way, I heard that the same symbol that is on the radiation suits was on the helicopter that helicoptered Rick away.

"Say, doc, will I be able to play the accordion?" :lol: I got a kick out of Luciana on drugs, especially Morgan's bafflement at their radio conversation. Well, her close call with the Walkers wasn't that funny, but at least they didn't get in and overrun the place.

So Karen Davis is working alone, apparently, so the people in the black armor are a separate group. What's their deal? And are they responsible for the clicking Zombie heads, or is there yet something else going on in this neck of the woods? The kids from the last episode seemed to fear somebody or something. Karen Davis is supposed to be a regular, so I assume she'll be back soon, despite her alleged death sentence from radiation.

That was a strange encounter between Strand and Salazar. Now Luciana thinks the plane is on the way, but Strand is just hoofing it back to wherever on his own, leaving them in the lurch. I wonder if Salazar will show up on his own to help Alicia and Luciana, bypassing Strand altogether, since he seems to think he's a Jonah.

So there's a lot of balls in the air so far this year: Max Headroom, Karen Davis, the Men in Black, the clicking Zombie heads, Salazar, the new kids on the block, and the nuclear reactor may still be in danger of melting down. And Morgan lost his stick. :(

The stick is a significant loss for Morgan. It's like Michonne losing her sword or Daryl losing his crossbow.

Was Salazar right about Strand being hopelessly selfish? And given Salazar's past, isn't it the pot calling the kettle black?

You're right there are many balls in the air. I suspect we'll get some resolution in the next episode.

I don't think Morgan will give up on his stick so easily. :D

I think Strand is legitimately reformed. I think Madison's death hit him pretty hard. I'm not convinced that Salazar can be reformed, though.

Well, I reckon that was a good 'un. That town weren't big enough fer John and a bunch o' dead folk. San Antonio Split, eh? I once had a filly who split to San Antonio.

Nothing like a showdown with a horde of Zombies in an Old West town. The Walking Dead shows don't usually demonstrate this kind of humor, and it's nice to see it slipping in now and then. Between this episode and the radioactive Zombies, I wonder if some of the creators were fans of Z Nation.

So the Walker Walls and the Clicking Zombie Heads are the creations of the kiddies. Are they weird post-Apocalyptic children who have been completely dehumanized by the Zombie Holocaust, or is there something else going on? They seem to just want our people to go away, but they're not trying to kill them. Are they hiding something, or someone?

And poor Morgan with his fake substitute stick. :lol:

That split was, uhh, a bit far-fetched to say the least. But cool. I guess we need John to be superhuman in this subhuman world.

Yes, there's something rotten in denmark with those child-beasts. I'm sure the secret will be spilled soon.

He's hanging in there. The reunion with Dwight was a little awkward -- they weren't exactly long lost bosom buddies.

I wonder if it will turn out like that episode where Carol had to shoot the kid.

Do you remember any scenes where they interacted on Walking Dead? I think we're supposed to assume they knew each other off screen.

Well, there were scenes when Dwight left the Saviors and was briefly adopted by Rick's group before Daryl chased him away. Morgan was there. Or am I misremembering?

No, that's true, I just can't remember any specific interactions between Dwight and Morgan. Mostly Darryl and Rosita. But I'm sure there's plenty that I don't remember. :lol:
