If TWD 7B titles were a drinking game, “Say Yes” is champagne

So far in the second half of The Walking Dead season 7 all of the episode titles have been used in dialogue. What does that mean for episode 712?

If you’re playing The Walking Dead 7B drinking game (not that it’s a thing, but it certainly could be…) then you might have noticed that so far every episode title has been used as dialogue in the first three episodes of the second half of season 7. The next episode of The Walking Dead follows Rick and Michonne on a solo mission that is equal parts adventure, fun at an apocalyptic amusement park, and some apocalyptic sexy time. The title of that episode is “Say Yes.” What could that possibly mean?

In the season 7 midseason premiere, Rick tells King Ezekiel the story about a “Rock in the Road” that prevented people from using the road until an industrious little girl decided to do something about it.

In episode 710, Rosita pointedly asked Father Gabriel if the Scavengers were his “New Best Friends.”

Then, in episode 711, Eugene tells Negan that the key to avoiding rotting Walkers is to cast them in molten metal. This will make them impervious to “Hostiles and Calamities.” (Honestly, as soon as I saw the title for this episode I knew those words would be coming from Eugene. They’re so Eugene!)

Clearly, there is a trend with titles. So let’s think about how “Say Yes” might fit into an episode featuring Michonne and Rick….

Yes, I’m thinking the same thing. Running through a quick mental list of questions asked that would require the follow-up of “say yes” you arrive quickly at one big question: “Can we get a cat?”

Well, maybe not. Not yet anyway. Maybe Rick and Michonne need to settle down first (hint, hint), and then they can get a cat.

You can probably guess where I’m going with this. I’m leaning toward that usage being too obvious in this situation, but if that question gets asked on episode 712, you saw it here first!
