Remember where we left off? Carol is missing. Morgan is looking for her. Rick has gone back to Alexandria to rally the troops. Maggie is having some mystery pregnancy illness. Daryl, Glenn, Michonne and Rosita have been captured by the Saviors and Daryl was shot.
|Cheer Cheer the gangs all here!|
|That must have been one heck of a party!|
Alright so Morgan finds Carol who doesn't want to be found. Carol is bleeding and looks like she is about to pass out about every 2 seconds. Still, she tells Morgan to shove off. He doesn't and takes her inside to rest.

Apparently Negan and his troops are waiting, pretty much everywhere for Rick. No matter where they go, they come across a bunch of Negan's henchmen, over and over, and over again. Rick and one of the Saviors get into a deep discussion about never knowing which day is your last day on earth mixed in with an all you need is love talk. My thoughts while I was watching this? First this guy telling Rick about appreciating his folks is bad news. Someone is going to die. Why would Rick pick a fight with a group when he knows nothing at all about them? Alexandria's resources are depleted and unless I am missing something, a ton of the residence have been killed in the last 6 months. It seems by now that Rick would have, you know, done some research on Negan and the Saviors. Maybe watched them and tried to figure out how many millions of them there are, exactly. Eh, what do I know? I am sure Rick has this covered.
Morgan has gone to town looking for what? We don't know and when he comes back Carol is missing. Hmm, since she said she wanted to be left alone and told Morgan to pound sand, it is a real shock that she would leave the moment he turns his back. Anyway, Morgan sets out to find the missing and kind of crazy Carol.
Carol on the other hand is only half conscious and walking around town without any regard for her well being. After nearly getting eaten by a walker with an elastic face she is attacked by the guy who survived the road block attack last week. Okay, so savior number whatever has been shot (by Carol last week) and isn't much better off than Carol but he manages to overpower her and shoots her a couple times for good measure. He starts to leave her in the street to die when Carol tells him that he can't just leave her, she isn't hurt enough to die. She then explains that he is suppose to tell her to look at the flowers and pop her. He is about to do just that when Morgan comes to the rescue. After giving the guy a chance to walk away, Morgan kills him.
Just about that time, low and behold the guy with the missing horse from last week shows up and he has a friend and his friend has a horse. I don't know who these people in armor suits are but I am going to call them the Knights because well they are wearing some sort of protective gear/suit and they ride horses so who else would they be? Anyway, the Knights offer Morgan and Carol sanctuary and they ride off into the sunset. Well, kind of anyway, I start saying to myself, Self, these Knight people may be able to help Rick and the Scooby gang if only they have the power and the numbers to help them overthrow Negan.

So Rick and Eugene have a pow-wow and Eugene decides to take off in the RV alone while the Scooby gang carries
|Daryl was shot last week but he is alive, or is he?|
Fade to black.
I want to hate Negan but anyone who gives Carl crap can't be all that bad, can he?
I want to like this episode but I seriously don't understand the cliffhanger. Wouldn't it have been just as miserable to know who Negan apparently killed and spent all summer saying Daryl of Glenn or Maggie or whoever isn't really dead, right? I mean, I know Game of Thrones did this with John Snow and we all know somehow John Snow is coming back but why not let us cry ove the loss and worry all summer long. Now I kind of just don't care.
My guess, and it is only that, is that Eugene was the one killed. I am thinking that only because he had a really sad look on his face and he gave Rick the recipe for bullets. Still, this is suppose to be a shocking event and if they want shock they kill...well, I would kill Maggie. I mean there can't be anything more shocking than a pregnant woman getting beaten to death with a bat.
Hubs has been saying he is done with this show for months and I am starting to feel like that is what everyone should be saying. This cliffhanger was a Jump the Shark moment and I just don't care.
