The Bad Things from TWD 811
- Father Gabriel’s illness. At this point, we aren’t sure what is causing him to be so sick, but we do know that it makes him sweat, makes him fatigued, and causes him to blur his vision. With a walker approaching and Dr. Carson not being much of a fighter, that’s a BAD situation.
- Tara’s impatience. There is nothing stopping her from killing Dwight if she wanted to. Yet, she asks for approval or help. It’s like the old saying goes: “poop or get off the pot”. Of course, that’s the PG version of the quote, but you know what I mean.
- “Do you care, Eugene?” There should be some reason for Eugene to care about Alexandria. He could say he wants to know how close The Saviors are to winning. He could say he wants to know the fate of those who tried to blow him up. For someone who thinks so fast, he didn’t do so well there.
- The Hilltop’s situation. If they don’t have food for themselves, how can they have enough for their prisoners or give to The Saviors if they end up losing their war? Maggie’s bloodthirsty nature has led the group to fail on their food production, which is not a good thing at all…and Maggie’s interactions with the prisoners (and Gregory) make it even worse.
- So, Tara did “poop”. You know how I said Tara should poop or get off the pot. Well, she went for it. Even though she didn’t end up killing Dwight, she took a chance at it. And that doesn’t bode well for there being any kind of trust between the two in the future.
- Getting caught. Dwight may have saved the people from the swamp, but two survivors still got caught. Gabriel and Dr. Carson got found by The Saviors, and a bold move from Carson led to him getting shot and killed by Negan’s men. Not good. Now Gabriel is stuck with sorting bullet casings for the rest of his life.
