RECAP: TWD, S08E07: Time After Time

I was really feeling the title of this episode. Really all characters that played a role in this episode has recurrences of some sort.

Rick giving Jadis another chance, and another, oh look and another.
Eugene doing what he sees are his best beats to stay alive . Also his conflection, which grass is greener (or which pickle is greener).
Morgan still helping out.
Michonne needing to check things out.
Daryl gung-ho

DAMMIT Eugene though!

I was hoping against all odds, that he was cozying up to Negan because he had plans to take him down. Naw! Eugene is Negan for sure. In Eugene’s ‘brilliant idiot’ mind Negan is his most likely ‘savior’, he thinks he has better odds of survival on TeamNegan even though he does realize the Saviors are the bad guys. And good Gabriel and them holy sun rays beaming down on you while you were coughing up who knows and telling Eugene to do that right thing. I see that played in his head hard and on repeat. Twice I thought Eugene was going to turn into The Hulk! With the visual shaking, grinding teeth and the fire in his eyes. That is what needs to happen with Eugene, he needs to get so irate/mad/anxious that he warps into a beast (better than the cowardly creature he is currently). I also love how Sasha’s coffin broke him down too. Sasha’s death was hard for him to swallow, and him using her MP3 Player to create this kite/drone creation was downright shitty! I’m glad Dwight shot it down rather than Eugene. GOOD! Dwell on the fact that it was all in vain!

Wasted time, wasted attempt at bravery (against Dwight). I understand why Dwight decided to hoot the drone instead of Eugene also. Dwight does not need to blow his cover, and killing Eugene would throw up a huge flag (or kite in this case). I am wondering though if at some point Negan overheard Dwight telling Eugene he is working for Rick, I would never say that shit out loud, not even in the middle of a desolate field! Too risky. Negan sure was acting like he knew something though. The shit eating grin on Negan’s face when he asked Eugene how it felt to be the second most important person in the sanctuary has me convinced he overheard, or someone else overheard and told him.
Β Let me also throw in the scene right after Eugene moping, and charges into Gabe’s sick room. Eugene barking at Gabriel like that while Gabriel is sick and dying of who knows what completely done me in. Eugene cannot stand up to anyone unless they are on their deathbed, NICE!

Speaking of which, OMG Gabe cannot die yet!! I love me a gun-toting, zombie killing preacher. I definitely need more of his Boondock Saints moments, where he gives the bad guy a blessing and shoots him down! Lort, is the doctor still alive?!?!?

WOW! Rosita THINKS, gotta be a first. And this time it’s her words that punch Michonne and knocks some sense into her. LOL! I mean, seriously, the look on Michonne face when Rosita’s words dawned on her reminded me of the time Michonne knocked Rick out. LOL! So good, Michonne steps down and it is back to Tara and Daryl, both having very good reasons for wanting Negan dead. But wait…what is this?! :O

Halleluyur, Captain Morgan to the rescue again. πŸ˜€ Speaking of senses, right now he is in some good senses.

I do also want to note Jadis’ and Rick’s bond. LOL. At first, while Rick was fighting, and after, the look on Jadis’

face, I thought she had a hard-on πŸ˜‰ Come to find out she was just sick of Rick surviving her awful attempts to put him down in these twisted ways. She was just frustrated that Rick keeps winning, she tries taking him out herself by going to shoot him again, not happening. Rick slams her down and she comes face to face (too close for comfort, close enough to learn a good lesson) with her creation.

And by the way, her negotiating skills again LOL I love it. Her wanting to sculpt Rick without the underwear… Oh dear! But why, oh why, did the writers of this episode leave us hanging like this??? If all of those Walkers are indeed all in the Sanctuary now, wouldn’t you still be able to hear their groans? Things to make you say hmmmmm.
