The Bad Things from 801
- Rick’s bloodlust. Wanting to get freedom is one thing, but just wanting to kill someone is an absolutely different thing. Making it his personal mission to kill Negan is just asking for trouble and something that could come back to bite him and his soldiers.
- The Talking Dead. After grouping up at the rendezvous point, we see a lot of conversations involving characters interacting for the first time. Sadly, these scenes which should improve recognition of minor characters act as only a backdrop and could have been used to really add more ‘oomph’ to the cast.
- And why aren’t they shooting him? Negan walks out a door first and is in front of MANY survivors from Rick’s group, but nobody shoots him or even shoots at him. Instead, they wait for him to deliver some dialogue. If they want Negan dead, they should take a golden opportunity when it is there!
- Shoot out those windows! It’s weird to see Rick and the gang not shooting at The Saviors and instead of shooting the glass out of the windows at The Sanctuary. This is a strange approach since they are at war, and the gunfire was for drawing walkers anyway.
- Having any more faith in Gregory. I get that Father Gabriel wanted to save Gregory and not see him die, but by now we know that he isn’t a redeemable character and he already chose his side. Gabriel’s mistake of trusting the untrustworthy puts him in a horrible position, as he’s was stranded at The Sanctuary.
