[8x09 spoilers] Do you think this is related to the ending of 8x08?

100% yes

wow, a somewhat decent(not great, just decent) episode of this terrible season, COOL NOW YOU HAVE TO WAIT 2 months to see a new one!

man, just fire damn Gimple aready

I hope it’s not. I personally want to see Carl just kamikaze himself against Negan and his gang

He’s not dead yet. He should definitely go out with some glory.

scott gimple is the downfall of this show

I just can’t believe this. I would have completely understood if it had been Chandler’s decision, but this is just so fucked up. I really really hope this doesn’t end up killing the show

How does this death benefit anyone? Chandler lost his job and there’s no way the ratings won’t go down slightly after this, what a joke

I don't see how it doesn't, there are sooooooo many storylines involving Carl directly in the upcoming arcs in the comics. I honestly have no flipping clue what made Gimple decide this was a good idea. They're either going to have to come up with original content, which by looking at their OC, I'd drop the show now; or have someone take Carl's place, which I don't see working.

:/

The real Carl

Could the show like decide whether carl is peaceful or not, he didn't go to the sanctuary last season to have a tea party did he?

They did you dirty Chandler. Don't let Gimple try to steer it any other way.

I'm proud of your performance and more importantly happy for you getting to spend 7 years on this show but can't say you weren't the one us fans have been rooting for the most. And looking forward to seeing you "be the future" of the storyline like the comics.

Fuck Gimple, just take solice he removed you from a show that's dying because of his decisions.

Also - its cliche and I'm just some random internet mod but trust me when I say, I'm not a God-fearing /religious type of person but always believe "everything happens for a reason" - you're gonna go off to college, have a fucking blast, do the acting stuff you'd never have been able to do before, and will generally be so much happier having moved on. This stranger promises you that. It just sucks you couldn't go out on your own terms cause Gimple is a fuck all.

Wow. I know people dump on Gimple a lot, but I'm genuinely shocked that this was his decision instead of Chandler's.

Scott may go down as one of the most reviled showrunners in history.

I was willing to accept this death if it was Chandler's decision, but it was Gimple's decision all along? To patch up a minor inconsistency from the comics? Maybe this is why Kirkman left, to get off the train before it crashed.

Wow, so it wasn’t his choice after all, I’m actually quite shocked

IT WAS GIMPLE’S DECISION?!

fucking fire him. He is sacrificing story for shock value.

I’ve defended him for so long but this crosses the line

What I think that episode lacked was a lot of pointless face montages...

MAGGIE YOU KILLED THE WRONG SAVIOR!! You should've killed the long-haired prick!

But honestly, her face when she was walking away and no one could see it was too real. You know she still has a heart deep down.

I like Carol, but the way she said "Eziekiel no!" when he locked himself inside the Kingdom was pretty damn weak. It was like she was telling a kid not to jump on the couch.

I like how Dwight gives them the Saviors on a silver platter at every turn and then Rick's group never ceases to not fuck things up, and even after Dwight wipes out a whole convoy for them they still give him shit. I get their anger at him for the past, but they're more than square now. Show him a little respect ffs.

"the saviors got out" = the shark has been jumped

Specifically, that it happened off-camera, via some unknown ex machina that allowed them to totally and silently break the siege without alarming the Allies generally, which is the only reason this big counter-attack worked at all. That and Hiltop team being idiots who just sat and waited patiently to be surrounded and disarmed by a far inferior force. And Alexandria just running because... Carl said so? No, that '?' isn't really right, it was literally because Carl said so. And because only !Michonne (wtf has happened to her?) was there to argue with him (where was everyone else?). And The Kingdom being left literally entirely undefended, with all their remaining soldiers apparently being routed and captured off-camera (although we only see one... or was he actually literally their one and only soldier left?).

This entire fucking episode happened off-camera. All the major players were unaccounted for for most of the day. Daryls crew had basically all the heavy-hitters at the siege, presumably in contact with the sniper teams(?), they sent in the truck, and then ??? what happened ??? apparently they all just went home? What? What? Daryl didn't know what had happened and they're all alive, so that's basically the only explanation. Wasn't the plan to END IT? Why did they just leave? Not because that was the moment the Saviors pushed out and struck back at the immediate siege forces.

The 1v1 Rick v Negan brawl was terribly forced, and of course pointless (because the writers are going to drag this shit out as long as the merch keeps selling). Let's start counting how many more times these two sworn blood enemies get conveniently left alone with each other to trade punches and escaped unharmed in this gritty grimdark hyper-realistic 'anyone can die' show.

Carl got chestbit off-camera with absolutely no hint or explanation until the final moments of the episode (in place of real plot progression). Ok. Just, fine. Whatever, TWD writers. Whatever.

Was anyone else confused by the character placement in this episode? I had no clue where anyone of them were headed to or leaving from.

It was pretty obvious that the no-named guy sitting behind Maggie in the car was only there to get killed.

What a CF!

Can we please just get rid of Gimple now? He's continually ruined the show and made it terrible. Thanks to that asshole and the bad writing, I think I'm finally over giving a damn about the show. I'll stick with the (superior) comics. The ones that Gimple hasn't had a chance to ruin

Overkill's The Walking Dead - Aidan Trailer

I didn’t even know about this, that’s sick!

So of course it's not gameplay, and thus basically worthless for judging the actual game in any way.. but shiiit that got me so hype.

The only issue is that they haven't released much information about it yet. They've said that it's going to be a first person shooter with 4 player co-op and stealth elements.

Everything else they'll be releasing information on next year by the sounds of it.

I would assume the comics universe as that’s where the other walking dead games take place as well.

Everyone Hates Eugene's Idea

Eugene is acting like a grade A bitch.

Well done by the actor.

I feel bad for him honestly. He's been bombarded by nasty comments and death threats from people who can't comprehend that he's playing a character and isn't actually Eugene in real life.

Lol seriously what have I missed in the last few episodes? I can't even tell what's real and what's a meme anymore.

Can't fix stupid

Rosita: “why don’t we just stick to the plan?”

Now that’s some character development right there

I’m on the Eugene needs to die train. I’m tired of the way he talks and looks

“Catch the finale next week for the epic moment everyone will be talking about after the episode ends”

What a weird tagline lol

I’m trying to figure out whether Eugene or the trash people are easier to understand.
