Rick's guys are a lousy shot. I wondered what the heck they were shooting. Those five on the balcony, the whole group opened fire and they didnt get a scratch.

So again...Negan walks out in front of the group who have their guns drawn and pointed at him and NOBODY kills him. LOL

I understand the need to tell a story but **** that is so annoying.

Rick should've had Daryl's gun so he could've taken them all out in one shot.

And then proceed to waste tons of ammo shooting out windows. From that angle they had no chance of hitting anyone.

Shoot out the windows, release a zombie horde, and go home.

I agree. I had to watch the last couple episodes from last season just to remember what was going on. Maybe I'll get more into it as the season goes along.

No kidding. And yet when it comes to walkers they are 100% head shot shooters even with hand guns at distance. In this universe its also extremely easy to sneak up behind people. Even walkers do it all the time. I don't want to complain too much though. Its still a great show.

This

The most annoying of any and all movies. The "speech" before the kill that always results in no kill.

As soon as he walked out, he should have/could have been sniped. It really discredits the show. Yes, it is a comic book, BUT why offer "selective" plausibility? I mean, why not just have Superman swoop in and save the day?

I get the theater of it all....but the reality is that Negan would never put himself in that position. If he were gonna come out and give someone a speech it would be after the group was beaten and disarmed. Simply because it's so easy for him to get killed.

Or just do it hiding behind a wall or some bulletproof shield. But they want the drama of him and Rick looking each other in the eye.

I figured Negan and Co. would have counter attacked shortly after the episode started. I guess he had better things to do.

Yeah, I'm not real clear on how much time has passed between Negan driving off with his middle finger in the air and this episode. Michon's face looks fine and Rick's gunshot wound seems to be of no bother at all so some time must have passed. I would think the Saviors would have immediately attacked again, preferably attacking the weak Hilltop Colony first.

Apparently enough for a blacksmith to forge something. I mean, what the **** was the blacksmith guy doing?

And they had exactly 2 lookouts?

Lazy writing
