    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Considering they've wasted 45 minutes so far, I'm guessing we don't find out who dies.

    Seriously, what's the point of making this a 90 minute episode if they're just going to add in 30+ minutes of filler?

    I'd imagine someone's going to explain this reference to me and I'll feel dumb for not getting it :embar:

    Ok, I've given the show a pass on most of the stuff that people call them out on, but 90 minutes of bullshit to leave us with that cliffhanger? Fuck that.

    I´m too invested by now. I still like it a lot. This was fucking bullshit, but Negan´s season could be awesome so I´ll keep watching.... Still can´t believe we have to wait 6 months to know. Glenn and Daryl would make the most impact but by now they´d be too obvious. Michonne would really impact on Rick, but are you really gonna kill a 3rd love interest for him? The only one who might have some sort of impact (besides glenn and daryl) is Abraham. No one would care if Rosita, Eugene or Aaron, and Carl isn´t going anywhere. But wait, it´d be pretty bold if Maggie was the one to meet Lucille, but would they kill a pregnant character?

    Abraham got all the screen time for character development; making ends with Eugine and telling Sacha he's ready for kids.

    What a waste of an entire season. Literally nothing happened. Almost approaching farmhouse level.

    Just spent a minute looking through the amc website, trying to find a feedback form so i could tell them to go fuck themselves.

    They must have pre-emptively disabled it.

    This - I call chicken shit. They couldn't commit to killing a major character, or at very least, which character to kill, so they come up with this bullshit so that they can figure out which character's death would have a big impact, without alienating their audience too much.

    If it's an Alexandrian or an auxiliary character like Eugene, rather than one of: Maggie, Glenn, Michonne, or Daryl (since it is not going to be Rick or Carl), then I call incredible horseshit. I am torn between Glenn and Daryl. I feel that Glenn's character should be dead already, but Daryl would have more of an impact, since he is one of the most badass characters, and his death would leave much more dread in people's minds, if even the most beloved and badass characters are killable.

    It's gotta be Daryl or Glenn to have maximum effect. Knowing the show, though, they'll probably settle for Abraham or Eugene.

    Maybe even Rosita or Aaron to troll us further.

    Wouldn't mind seeing Sasha go.

    Negan was aiming for Glenn, but the reanimated zombie corpse of Nicholas somehow shuffled past all of the Saviors unnoticed, and was just about to take a bite out of Glenn's ear when Lucille came down.

    That was bullshit. Plain and simple.

    Pros:

    - John Winchester aka The Comedian aka Alicia Florrick's new investigator as "Negan" was great.

    - Uhmm....Morgan?


    Cons:

    - Everything else



    Honestly, it was nothing but a marketing gimmick. They predict ratings will go sky high knowing people will tune in to see who got beat by Lucille. Given that this show is on basic cable, I actually thought it was kinda cool with the first-person perspective. Hearing Negan say "taking it like a champ!!" was neat. But I expected them to cut to a wide-shot to see who was actually getting beaten. But nope. What a crock shit. Who would have thought I'd be praising Morgan as a positive? smh

    Wrong: a dumpster wheeled itself in out of nowhere and took all the blows as Glenn slid under it with the rest of the gang.

    And now I'm reading the usual "Fuck you AMC!! I'm out!" and "Never turning into this show again!!" online when we all know you'll be back in six months to see who got killed.

    But yeah, look up "cop-out" in the dictionary and you'll find this scene right beside it.

    Twitter.

    An entire season as preamble for 15 minutes of one of the dopiest bad guys in comicdom.

    He's so bad.
    How bad?
    His baseball bat has barbed wire wrapped around it!
    Whoa.

    It's possible that a number of actors are vying to get off this POS and AMC is waiting for the best offer.
