In seven days (“Seven days…”), The Walking Dead Season 8 will start out with their 100th episode.
It did take a long time for us to get here, us DeadHeads have to suffer a longer break than normal shows, then there’s this mid-season break to go through. I mean SHIT.
In anticipation of the event, AMC released these videos:

Season 8 will also be the beginning of war between Rick and ‘the good guys’ and Negan and ‘The Saviors’. Season 7 ended with Shiva, a tiger (YEAH, a TIGER!) jumping in and saving the day and ripping Saviors apart! I have waited so long to hear Negan’s response to Shiva! I can’t wait how he puts that in words. There was also that moment when we saw in Rick’s eyes that he got his balls back, wasn’t submissive at all and calmly told Negan he would kill him! OMG that quickly became my favorite scene of all time!!  I am so ready for the war to begin. The show was already suspenseful, not it will be pretty damn close to unbearable! So much to take in! So many emotions to go through, I personally am creating new cuss words to shout at the screen during the first episode of season 8!
Through the years, Entertainment Weekly has put out some incredible photos of the cast before the newest season. This coming season is my absolute favorite!

RECAP: TWD, S07E07, Sing Me a Song


By Tammie Parker

OMG! Carl gave me a heart attack! This kid right here, though! Talk about gung-ho! First off he's going solo, huh? *Yells at TV* Hey, at least before Jesus jumped out he sliced through some boxes so when the Saviors pick them up the bottom comes out. PERFECT 😀 Then here's Carl, just going to ride til the end and just start shooting huh. OMG!

And Negan's reaction was ever so smooth. Not freaking out because someone is shooting or that his men were killed. No go ape-shit and killing Carl there on the spot. Just Mr.Calm. Negan just takes Carl into The Sanctuary and proceeds to go about his regular schedule.

Pause. Check out everyone stopping what they are doing and kneeling for Negan. Not a sound. WOW. Talk about discipline. YES, Negan is the King Dingaling. Some may see it as fear, some may see it as respect, and some say both are right. Regardless, Negan is in full control, and Carl notices, which (A) Shows him how unprepared he truly was for this task and (B) is a bit of a look into the future and in the past, as far as how Rick handles leadership in Carl's opinion.

Negan has a Harem! And here he is again, offering someone a lady for the evening. I'm sure Carl is scared beyond capabilities at this point, however! He has come to terms with what a stupid move he just pulled and is noticing he had no clue the full Negan effect. The boy just had his first kiss and didn't even pause to enjoy that.

Now back to respect/fear! Negan has a sit down with Carl in his room.


Fat Joe comes in bringing him Lucille. Negan gets completely weird, BUT I was happy to see AMC let him use more of his colorful words. Bats don't have pussies! Back to Negan and Carl. Negan makes Carl take off his bandages and we finally see the grotesqueness that was his right eye! twd-carl-eyesocketI was feeling more pity for Carl at this point to even be disgusted at that sight. Carl is on the verge of shaking like Olivia right now. And Negan wants a performance. Carl must sing and entertain this asshole. Carl is not a singer, never claimed to be. So wtf? Carl did jump up at one point and tell Negan to jump out the window! OH, you almost had it, but you've gotta be quicker than that. So here we have this boy going through puberty so his voice is all over the place anyway, he is scare out of his wit, and now embarrassed and out of his comfort zone entirely and he must sing. Sing what?? Negan suggests he sing a song his mother used to sing to him. OH SURE, I bet that really helped Carl calm down. So, shaking, Carl starts singing 'You Are My Sunshine'. If he was not nervous enough before, here comes Negan swinging his bat all around, bashing in invisible heads. Negan stops him to say that the iron is ready. Comic book gold, I tell ya!!

So Negan paces around this room of a kneeling audience while talking about respect, and rules, and the need for punishment when someone breaks the rules. Look, a handsome man here in The Sanctuary..........oh well. Looks like Negan is a little confused about what to do for face wrinkles! Mark was Amber's (now one of Negan's wives) boyfriend. These two had a tryst, apparently, and Negan found out.

OH hey Spencer being more of an ass. And Rosita strapping on, and reminding him who has the reigns. We will get back to Rosita in a moment. So Spencer and Father Gabriel take a ride 🙂 Spencer rambles on about not liking Rick and how much Rick has screwed things up. Now it's Father Gabe's turn to put him in his place. Did the pastor just say Spencer is being a shit? Then, LMAO, FatherDick has ShitDick pull over, and Gabe just walks home. That is too good!

Am I the only one who missed Eugene rambling on? It took me a minute to catch on that he was going on and on and on. LUVIT. But hang on, Rosita has blown a socket! Go easy on our tender scientist, young lady, and stop bullying. You need a time out. Well now damn, Eugene you are not helping by actually making a damn bullet anyway. Eugene, the fluffer. #FacePalm

Speaking of women, we see Michonne back out there. Oh Lort, she starts whistling. Please, no, we hear enough of that from the Saviors.


Couldn't she have sung to get walkers attention? LOL. At first I thought she was going to make new pets, so I was really confused when she just took them out and dragged them away. Later we see Michonne has made an awesome roadblock(!), and whoever this woman is has no sense for surroundings, so she must be a Savior! What's really ironic is now Negan is in Alexandria!

Speaking of Negan in Alexandria, he manages to get Olivia to cry. Then he offers her a mercy fuck. That gets him a slap on the face - and a real good ear ringer at that! Which Negan enjoys, OF COURSE! And here comes my favorite quote of the night, "I am now 50% more into you"! LMAO. My laughs were quickly silenced with Negan going around the house exploring. I was actually typing nononononono in our group chat last night as Negan opens Judith's nursery door. DAMMIT! What is he going to do? I hardly ever worry too much about what is going to happen on this show, but this has me worried. After all, Judith didn't have a chance in the comics, and Negan does like to take half your stuff! This bastard is actually sitting on the porch with scared, one-eyed Carl, sipping lemonade and talking baby talk to Judith, enjoying the evening. OMG.

Wait a minute! What are Rick and Aaron doing in the back of another truck?! Whose truck is it? How did they get in it? When did they get in it? Why? Who has the crappy handwriting and is making these lousy signs?


That some security system, I tell ya. Until the two get to the pond with the boat out in the middle, I was thinking the owner was a complete tool. But, WOW, at least he had one genius thought! The Walker/Bobbers are flipping awesome! So someone has to hop in this aluminum boat, and oar their way through walkers to get to that boat! I love it.

And we see Jesus has made it. OMG, I thought Negan figured out he was up there when they stopped. I'm glad to see he was able to get down and hidden without a sound. I do love ninjas! Wonder what his next move is? Is he going to run into Daryl while looking for Carl? I bet $100 he will be the one to get Daryl out properly!

Daryl does have the green light to go! That was the key on the back of that 'Go now' note slipped under his door. Negan must have forgotten to leave one of his minions in charge while he's in Alexandria, just like he forgot Lucille when Carl showed up. D'OH!

Remember next week will be 90 minutes for the mid-season finale.

RECAP: TWD, S07E05, Go Getters

RECAP: TWD, S07E05, Go Getters

By Tammie Parker


Well, we caught the birth of a phoenix, aka Maggie Rhee. It was a powerful scene, seeing her waking up in a sunlit room and first things she sees are the tiny flowers left by Jesus. That scene said so much. I was shocked to hear the baby was okay! I hope she is able to carry full term. I was overjoyed to see her come out of the clinic trailer looking pretty good. It was heart warming to see Sasha sitting there waiting for her as well. Remember, Sasha and Maggie were having a moment and watching the sunset when Aaron introduced himself, so these two have grown pretty close. And throughout the episode we see Sasha pleading for Maggie and willing to bend over backwards to keep her at Hilltop.

Now Maggie asks Sasha to take her to Glenn's grave. It was a clever move burying Glenn and Abe at The Hilltop instead of Alexandria. That has given the crew back at Alexandria an opportunity to dig some empty graves to store much needed items and unaccounted for weapons, and Negan and his crew will be none the wiser. Jesus finds the ladies here and explains the meaning behind the color of the flower. Green, which is the color of the hydrangeas for the graves, he tells them, means release. Again a very powerful statement. And at that moment it seemed Maggie exhaled for the first time since this all happened. When Jesus explained the flowers, I instantly thought of the green balloons floating up. Green = go on. Then, in this important moment - the first time Maggie has visited Glenn's grave - as Maggie tries to let go, say good bye, and move on, here comes Hilltop Dick Gregory to piss on some graves. Pretty much. He's fuming mad that Maggie is even there because, after all, this is all her fault. And he doesn't believe there should even be any graves because they burn their dead. Finally, he gets Sasha mixed up with a Hilltopian and commands her to get back to her work. WELL, he couldn't be any more mixed up! LOL It is starting to feel as thought Gregory is going out of his way to make a point of forgetting who is who. In other words, he's as much as saying you are beneath me, so who you are does not matter. These girls will be remembered; that's for sure.

That night, during this episode's musical, Maggie gave us a peek at what it would be like with her in charge. The Saviors had all doors barricaded or jammed somehow, giving the walkers time enough to come through that open gate. We see Maggie climb on top of her trailer, yell for Jesus to go help Sasha, and command some other Hilltopians to go do who knows. Then she pulls the greatest stunt of all!! Keep in mind Maggie's physical and mental states right now, how weak she is (she just came out of the infirmary), and now consider that she probably used up any energy she had to spare to pull herself up on top of the trailer. But, OH, don't count her out! She is too damn smart and has too much gumption! Maggie goes and gets the biggest wheeled tractor imaginable and plows down that sweet old Gremlin! You see, a real ruler has brains and the bronze to pull the mission through! This also gives us another look into her wild past. We had not heard anything about it since they were on the farm and Maggie was talking about coming home from college and Beth finding her birth control pills. So Maggie had experience crunching a car, huh?! I say rolling over a boy's car is better birth control then those little pills anyway!

Maggie's prayer with the girls shows she has faith in the future and hope for a brighter tomorrow. Her prayer was the ending of a Thanksgiving poem by the great Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"For this new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends, Father in heaven, we thank Thee."

Next,we find ourselves in Gregory's study, and he's still going on about the girls leaving. Sasha steps up and says there has to be something to make them stay. This is when that sleaze Gregory came out. He looks Maggie up and down, like a sleazedick would, and in his sneaky-ass way put on his professional tone and states they could meet in private to determine if there was, in fact, something that could be done. Maggie's lip actually curls at the statement and he snaps, "Go to hell." Well, there goes their Rhubarb preserves! Damn. Now, make no mistake, even if Sasha had let this scum crawl into her bed, he would still throw her under the bus at the first opportunity. So, now The Saviors show up and Gregory tells Jesus to hide the girls in the closest. I actually loved seeing The Saviors arrive. Gregory has his quarters all dolled up with Chippendale furniture and elaborate art, and here trots in these sweaty, greasy, grimy Saviors. I truly was hoping they had at least a few cans of spray paint. 😉 Maybe next time. What did happen was equally as entertaining. Simon's demeanor has Gregory on the edge, man. He looked like he was about to squeal and run for the hills! Now, to me, he was surely playing when he seemed uncertain regarding whether or not to show Simon what was in the closet. And LOL what a great scene!! He looks right at Jesus and sees him shake his head with a "No" look on his face. He should have listened. LOL. Then Simon takes the whole box, even the single bottle Gregory was holding. HA! And he has his men take Gregory's prized painting. WELL, DAMN! And just when you thought Simon was through knocking Gregory down, he makes Gregory kneel to him in front all everyone in the quarters. Could you see the smoke coming out of Gregory's ears? So, once the Saviors leave, Gregory storms off to find Jesus to give him a "what have you" only to find Jesus letting the girls out of his own bedroom closet. HILARIOUS! Well, he should have been more specific. Now we see Jesus stepping up even more. That's not good enough. Maggie knows what he needs: a punch right in the face! All Gregory could do is hold his sore jaw (well, really what else could he do?) while Maggie takes back her father's pocket watch that he helped himself to, and, while she is in his face, she reminds him of who she is.


Jesus stands back while all of this is going on. He's been throwing hints out here and there and giving the eye. Jesus is able to see that Maggie is perfect for the leader role, and I think he is preparing and greasing up the cogs for it to happen. That is part of the reason he was so eager to jump when Sasha asked him to find out where Negan was. Jesus is perfect for that sneaky job, too.

Now, about his riding companion... There were a lot of scenes with Carl that spoke volumes as well. At the beginning, when he was throwing darts at the dartboard, not a single dart even landed on the board.


At first I laughed, then it hit me as to what that means. Our sharp shooter has only one eye now. It's not even the eye he used. Back to the drawing board or, in this case, the dartboard. He should go out with Michonne to practice. There are also some WHOA moments with Enid and Carl. We see him driving for the first time, and he's just as bad a driver as his mom. We also get to see these two getting to be kids again.


The two of them skating down that desolate road was such a powerful image. They were free, they were alone, and they were happy for the first time in a very long time. The constant burdens on their shoulders were momentarily lifted. We are also treated to Carl's first kiss. It was good timing in that it happened after their skating adventure.


It was bad timing in that they kissed right outside of the Hilltop, and Carl's attention was drawn to other things as a result. That kiss had so much potential, but here in the Apocalypse everything is a quarter of its potential. So Carl hops aboard a cargo truck. The fact that Carl's blind ass is able to sneak around The Saviors AND Jesus really says a lot for these klutzes.

I would like to talk about talk about another kiss that did not get enough mention, a kiss that was even longer and more passionate than Carl's. Rick's parting kiss. When Rick goes to kiss Michonne bye on the cheek, Michonne was having none of that! She grabbed her man's face, brought it down, and planted one right on the kisser - staying there until she was satisfied that she started a fire deep within him! Michonne was reminding him of what he has to come home to. She was also ensuring that he went on light-hearted with a little bit of his worry gone.


Finally, Sasha sharpening that knife with Abe's cigar in her mouth was quite a sight! Wouldn't it be awesome if she grew a red Fu Manchu? 😀 That was interesting to see. What is Sasha becoming? Where does she go from here?

Until next time...

RECAP: TWD, S07E04, Service

By Tammie Parker


Man, I really wanted this episode to be called “The Fell”. Get it? The two before this were “The Well” and “The Cell”, and our team have definitely fallen at the moment! They truly did fall.

We start off seeing a sad, sad Eugene pouting and tinkering. His bff is gone. And he is desperately trying to show that he can still be useful without coming out of the woods and taking up post. Seems like they were making a point of him not even considering making bullets.

Let's move on to the fallen Spencer. I want to take note as to what has happened with this guy both visually and spiritually.


Spencer, like Maggie, has watched his entire family die - mother, stepdad, and brother - only in his case, he had not had a nice helping of the real world to toughen him up and all deaths were close together. Before Rick's crew, Spencer was royalty and an over-aged bratty 'princess'. His fantasy started fading when Rick's crew showed up, and when Alexandria's walls came down, so did the remaining shreds of the world he knew. His attempt to be a hero wasn't ill-thought and only got him in deeper trouble. And he had to put his own mother down. See how Carl grew-up, Spencer grew out (out of his fantasy). It didn't help in the least bit that Rosita had no problem telling him the only reason he was warming her bed. And you see it when you look at him. He looks completely beaten. Did a walker steal his comb when they busted in? His eyes are sunken and his clothes always disheveled.

Speaking of Rosita, boy, isn't she just disgusted?! Her love was brutally killed by Negan. Her new found shadow (Spencer) is just so weak and completely opposite from Abe. She isn't happy at all with this 'maybe' charade Rick and the others are putting on, and is ready for war. Then here comes Dwight to taunt her and push her around. (Dwight doesn't like that pretty face because his pretty faced wife was taken from him, and his face isn't so pretty). Every flipping thing has her disgusted and aggravated! I'm surprised she hasn't flipped the script already. Now it is she who reminds Eugene that he has the ability to still be a useful part of the crew.

Then there is sneaky Michonne! As soon as she took her first shot at that walker, I figured out what she was doing. Michonne is a samurai; she doesn't have a clue how to use a gun! She needs to learn and quick. Guns are a lot easier to hide on you than a katana. And what do you do when your sword is taken away from you and there is no spare junk metal to make a makeshift one? She kept a pretty calm head on her shoulders when she confronted Rick about giving that unaccounted for rifle over to Negan. That was one odd way of getting it out there that he knows Judith isn't his. I mean I saw him telling Michonne before anyone else, that is his woman and certainly his better half. And I knew the moment they showed the new Judith in Alexandria which way the story was going - she looks just like Shane! He just had to come around the roundabout, long ass way to make any sense. I was thrilled to see her back out there and attempt it again. I shouted, 'Otis is gonna shoot you!' when she approached the deer. LOL. Loved how she plopped it down for Negan's men when they were leaving.

My heart went out to Olivia. Speaking of no survivor skills. Can someone PLEASE start taking her out on missions? Just leave some necessities with Carl or someone while gone. She was actually whimpering for crying out loud. Olivia needs a chance.

Now, how about that Father Gabriel? 😀 I was ROTFLMAO at his personal introduction to Negan. HA! I thought I wouldn't stop laughing at Negan's reaction. “You're one creepy son of a bitch!” Well, played Gabe! Loving you more and more each showing.

Now onto our HERO Rick. I really don't know (my guess is as good as yours on this) how much of the comics they are going to follow when it comes to Rick's fight with Negan. Hell, they take a left here and go cross country when it comes to the script. I FEEL that Rick is as submissive as he needs to be to get from A to B. And with those empty graves, I see he does have a plot or two. Rick is pretty infamous with burying and hiding weapons. He also has faith that Morgan will bring his Super Spy Carol back to him. There are also those at the Hilltop, Ninja Jesus for one, and another that is raising from the ashes that I will not name. Plus, Heath and Tara should be coming back soon. Now I do believe he went way too easy on Spencer. For one hiding the guns, for another that aweful remark he made about Abe and Glenn. I would have whipped his ass right there, then again knowing Rick he has something planned.

Last but not least, LucilleDick! OMG. having Rick hold the still bloody Lucille as Negan goes around Alexandria is such a head game. I mean he took out two of his beloved crew, two men, no less, with that bat. And holding your enemy's weapon while he plunders your village would screw with anyone. And coming early and taking whatever they damn well pleased...I mean, DAMN we didn't like the arrangement in the first place, but shit that is what we got prepared for. Taking the mattresses THEN burning them on the side of the road. Crucial. And Negan leaving with 'my dick down your throat'...


OOOOH that Negan! He's such a card!

LMAO He has so many members in my group, and so many of my friends pissed. All the while I am over here like 'HELLO? He is the bad guy. You are suppose to be pissed at him'. Negan just makes it so much more entertaining. And JDM is playing the peepee out of that role.

RECAP: The Walking Dead, Season 6

RECAP: The Walking Dead, Season 6

By Tammie Parker

With The Walking Dead season 7 around the corner, I thought I could help refresh your memory of what all went down in season 6.

This was a HUGE season!!! So many favorable moments:

  • Glenn is ALIVE!
  • Maggie’s pregnant. Who can think of pancakes at a time like this?!
  • Carol kicking the Wolves asses while not burning that casserole was jaw-dropping!! I bet Morgan shat his pants when Carol pulled down that handkerchief to show him who she was. I mean we know he had an inkling that she was something other than what she portrayed to be, but he was in for a HUGE surprise!!!
  • Rick and Michonne are finally a couple!!! This one I have said made sense for a long time now, Michonne has one hell of a head on her shoulders, and is quite logical. Carl has a strong bond with her already, and had accepted her as family a long time ago. If you think back, Carl is the one that told Rick she belonged with them.
  • Rick flew into Beast-Mode again when Carl is shot, and the crew comes together in this amazing badass scene of them taking down this horde of about 400 Walkers!!! The way they shot that part, going back and forth between each member, and the camera angle was ingenious!!!
  • We met a goat and a cheese-maker (bonus points if you know how Twisty fits in!) and we were all reminded of the importance of kindness, and how much we lack of it is in this new world.
  • Eugene found his balls; they were on Dwight the whole time.
  • Gabriel found his balls – while remaining a pastor, so he will say a final prayer for you as he puts you down!That’s just a new kind of badass in my book! Norman should teach him how to say it in Irish!!!
  • The introduction of Jesus had me glued to the screen!!! ~the chance ~the ninja skills ~the discovery of another settlement!
  • Daryl taking out a whole group of bikers in one shot, that brought back fond memories of him sticking a grenade down the barrel of the Governor’s tank. Fun times!

 

So many AW SHIT moments!

  • The rock quarry.
  • Alexandria under attack (first the Wolves, then the Walkers).
  • Maggie dangling from the scaffolding.
  • This damn red-head chic holding Carol and Maggie hostage!
  • Carol’s break-down.
  • Carol leaving!
  • Denise.
  • Deanna.
  • The Mayor of The Hilltop propositioning Maggie.
  • Morgan fighting Carol.
  • Morgan misguided ideas.
  • Glenn’s first kill.
  • The cat and mouse game.
  • The Dwight and Daryl romance.
  • Carl got shot after he left another house.
  • Abe’s dumb ass dumped Rosita to be with Sasha. (Yes, Sasha is one hell of a shot, but leaving someone to be with someone else is never a good idea,)
  • The Tinman Walker.
  • NEGAN.

 

A lot of new faces--We met Heath in season 6, he was struggling to see Rick as the good guy/the answer.

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

Jesus, and in the show you're still hanging as to why he is called that. Is it his looks? Or his need to be a savior?

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

A whole new gang at The Hilltop.

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

Eastman, he may be horrible at making cheese, but he had such a huge heart, and was such a wise man.

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

Tabitha, OH I loved having her on the show! She brought liveliness back to the show! I wanted Maggie to meet her.

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

And we were introduced to The Saviors in Season 6 and their obnoxious habit of whistling.

We also caught a few glimpses of some strange armored men, I am so looking forward to Morgan and Carol's next chapter.

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

And with season 7's promos, I am happy to see that we will be meeting Ezekiel and his kitten.

Now we were left with many of our loved characters kneeling in front of Negan, and one being Lucilled.

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

I did not/ will not put much thought into WHO was bludgeoned to death. I am concerned about Maggie. Is she in the middle of a miscarriage? If not, what's happening? And to have to be kneeling while you are in so much apparent pain! And if she wasn't already having a miscarriage, it would take a miracle for her not to have one through this. Also, remember, Tara is off with a group (Heath included) and has no idea that Denise is dead or that the gang is being beaten to death by a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire!

The Walking Dead / Fair use doctrine.

Y'all be on the lookout for my thoughts and feels for the premiere!
