Okay, who else was PSYCHED to finally see Carol? She is such an interesting character, you guys. I loved watching her become badass, and harden into something scary. In this show, that’s cool and useful. What we’re seeing of Carol now is something that we barely remember, and she barely remembers either– I hate how she says she was a mom! Carol bakes cookies; Carol kisses Tobin on the porch. I think Carol doesn’t want to kill.
While one couple forms, another falters– it’s not like Abraham and Rosita were ever compelling. ( Side note: I couldn’t tell if Abraham was leaving just Rosita or Alexandria in general… I guess to be revealed.) Regardless, Abraham’s words were unbelievably harsh. He only was with Rosita because when he met her, he thought she was the last woman in the world and now he knows she’s not. If I were Rosita, I’d have plenty of tears.
The raid on Negan’s compound was somewhat impressive. It’s neat to see the group work together with ninja-like stealth. It’s not nice to see the pain in Glenn’s eyes as he knifes his sleeping victims. This group is hard, yo. As evidenced by the comments as he punches the decapitated head of a walker, Rick is what is to be feared these days. While flashes of humanity seem to return to the others, it’s been a while since we’ve really seen that in Rick.
AND HONESTLY THAT ENDING. Terrifying, in a way. Thoughts?!
