Okay, so an old Soviet-era satellite fell from the sky and landed largely intact-- enough for Eugene to think he can salvage valuable hardware-- and started a forest fire. Didn't see that coming. But our people had to enter Whisperer territory to fight the fire, so apparently that's going to start something.

But they're going to be prepared, because they've been training to fight as an army. Weird, but probably wise.

In other news, the rebirth of civilization continues, with Carol out at sea and the Doc training some assistants. One of whom has already developed a god complex. And something's up with the Doc. He's having flashbacks. That can't lead to anything good. But the baby has a lot of people looking after her, all of whom are pretty weird, but it's better than nothing.

And Daryl wants to hit the road-- maybe the deaf girl has him worried.

It's tough finding time with Olivia here visiting. Plus, she's making me binge-watch Stranger Things while she's here. Have you seen it? I think you'd love it -- it has an adventurous and mysterious Twilight Zone quality to it.

Oh wow, be grateful you don't have Netflix because then binge-watching dozens of shows would become your full-time job for several years.

I'll have to catch up on both these eps when Olivia leaves, which is Wednesday.

^^ You should be able to catch them on On Demand with no problem.

So anyway, this was a very special episode about The Whisperers, showing how Alpha and Beta met during the early days of the Zombie Apocalypse. He was an inmate in a rubber room and she was a sociopath long before the Zombies came. And that's about the size of it. Next week, back to our regularly scheduled show.

It was a good episode, with an ominous ending featuring a stare-down between Alpha and Carol. You've seen the follow-up to this, so I can only imagine a major bloody conflict between the whisperers and our good guys.

The trained army sequence was cool. It makes sense that they should formalize their defenses into an organized military -- it's part of the evolution of a society.

It was fun seeing quite a bit of playful banter between Carol and Daryl.

Negan's rehabilitation continues. Slowly he's becoming a good guy who will save everyone from the whisperers. At least that's what it looks like.

Judith is now a zombie-killing badass. Hard to believe we saw her born in that prison all those years ago. This series should now be called TWD: TNG.

I should be able to watch the next episode tomorrow and be all caught up.

"We could make matching bracelets." "How about if we just not talk?" :lol:

They've got to have something in mind for him. Jeffrey Dean Morgan isn't hanging around just to tend the vegetable garden.

I think that's basically the premise of the new series that's coming up.

^^ That could be pretty cool :yes:

Just saw ep 2. Not real impressed with it. I get it, the villain's origin story needs to be told. It's actually part 2 or 3 of the origin story which began in segments last season.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting back to our regular cast. The only really interesting thing about this episode was that Alpha seemed to recognize the guy under the mask.

Yes. Plus I liked her exchange with her daughter:

Daughter: Is that man a monster?
Alpha: Now we're all monsters.

Well that's more like it. A very good episode, despite the continued rehabilitation of Negan.

Too bad Michonne didn't allow Carol to kill Alpha. How do these arch villains manage to have 9 lives?

I loved the scene where Carol imagines herself married to Daryl. I give the series a lot of credit for never forcing that obvious relationship down our throats.

Well, that sounds like an interesting fantasy sequence. I started watching it today, but I didn't get far. I should be able to watch it all in the morning.

Okay, so Carol has a bit of a pill problem. That kind of came out of left field. I wonder how it got started. Did she find some crates of Schedule II narcotics in the hold of her boat, or what? It seems unlike her to get caught up in something like that, and I wonder where it will lead. Her hallucinations were kind of interesting, especially that scene of domestic bliss with Daryl.

Similarly, the doc is seeing things, too, but in his case it looks more like flashbacks to Alpha's massacre. Seems to be a combination of trauma and survivor's guilt. I wonder if any of the communities have any behavioral health providers among their citizens. Probably not, because they're not generally the type of people who would survive a Zombie Apocalypse. :lol: But what was really interesting was that it was his asshole assistant who understood what was happening and came to his aid. I wonder how that relationship will develop.

And speaking of assholes, we have Negan who is congenitally unable to stop being an asshole, yet seems to be genuinely attempting to adjust to his new status quo. Or is it a plot? It's been six or seven years since he was deposed and locked up and he's just seeing the light of day now. Could he still have ambitions of taking over? Or does he just not care anymore? In any case, he saved Abraham, although it seemed like he was thinking over his options at first.

Meanwhile, the Whisperer plot trudges on, with Alpha demanding territorial concessions, and Carol failing to assassinate her-- but succeeding in wounding one of her followers. I think that the three Whisperers that Carol saw were real, and that this girl was one of them-- but are they doing Alpha's bidding or are they rogues?

They've made his character impossible to read. Which means he can do anything, become anything, and we'll just have to roll with it. :no:
