Never thought I'd say this, but I actually hope Jadis dies a more brutal death or has a far worse injury than Negan (who I know is still alive in the comics).

Acting was great yesterday though, and the ending was perfect IMO.

I'm wondering if the trash people and Negan's crew end up having their own separate battle. I'm betting that is a very tenuous alliance.

Also, Shiva jumping in like that and eating people was fantastic. Negan looked legitimately freaked out. Then he just looked furious when he saw Maggie.

"They have a [dang] tiger?!?!?" - Negan  :laugh:

Yeah I was thinking the same thing, but I still wouldn't mind seeing the trash people wiped out as a result LOL.

Shiva is now my favorite.

I was expected gunshots or something as Negan was about to swing, but then the tiger came in. PURE GENIUS.

loved the season premiere.   good to finally see a plan of attack from the 'alliance' against Negan and the zombie hoard added a lovely finishing touch to wiping out Sanctuary.   Rick should have taken out Negan when he first popped out the door though--missed opportunity that'll likely bite in the butt later.

anyone have any thoughts on the differing timelines presented?

I知 not buying that a dozen walkers in a muddy ditch could take down a full grown angry tiger.

If I can suspend belief enough to buy walkers I guess I can suspend belief enough to buy them taking down a tiger but it is not easy...

They can. These monsters are not afraid to just pin down anything alive, and would keep going unless their brains stop.

Shiva is strong and big, but she's going against a horde of hungry zombies who has no remorse and no fear. She might be able to take down a couple, but eventually she will be overwhelmed with the numbers, which is what happened.

Regardless, I didn't feel sad when the Kingdom fighters went down, but the Shiva death really dragged me down.

the hardest part to suspend belief about is that Negan just walks out there with his cohorts and no one shoots them when they all have a clear shot at it. 
  I'm liking the general tone of the season - much more upbeat etc, but it is getting harder to follow - who are all these people at the outposts - and what exactly is the overall plan? it seems scattered.

 Negan is great in the comics but it just hasn't carried over good enough to PG 13 rated TV. They need to kind of move on a bit i think. it just seems too cartoon-like now.  just my 2 cents.

A horde, yes. A dozen or less? No way.  We池e talking about a 400+ pound agile killing machine.

Yeah, for me this was the point where the show completely jumped the shark.  So they refuse to take a wide open shot at 2-3 of the leaders of the saviors and Negan, but after they go inside they waste hundreds of bullets shooting out the high windows that a zombie isn't going to be able to go though to the the saviors (if that was the point, I am not sure.)

After that my 'do they thing the viewers are idiots' radar came up, and I don't even care if I see the show anymore.  In season 1, 2, and 3 this was great television.  The show I think needs to end, they are repeating themselves, and it has seriously gone down hill.

Well, you could also make the argument that Negan could have simply killed almost all of Rick's group that night he had them on their knees, but he didn't.

Yeah, I agree it's kind of stupid, but that's just how TV shows are lol.

The part I found funny is when Jerry comes in and practically slices the guy in half in a gruesome, violence scene, and people cheer and are like "yes, I expected it!", but then Shiva goes down and suddenly it's emotional terror and everyone is so emotional  :laugh:

I hated seeing her go, but I knew it was coming (like in comics), and I think the cast/crew wanted to save up by not having to use CGI anymore  :P

have to agree in the sense that I would have expected Shiva to be able to get away.  instead the show just had her back into the gully and not try to escape.

this is what bugged me about what I suppose was their plan.  Negan's right there for the taking and not even a shot fired at him until he's in the building.  no wonder Negan feels he's going to win the war and can control the 'sheep' in the civil communities.
