While I don't think this was a 'classic' episode, it was OL. Steve, trying to make this sensible would defy anything we have ever watched on TV. It is fiction and it is from a comic book series. It is entertainment, and I feel it is still entertaining me, so I want more and more. You can take most series and find fault with it. If we took the time to analysis Breaking Bad, maybe the best TV show ever, we could find many silly and stupid things the writers made Jessie and Walt do. We just ahve to sit back and let it happen, suspend reality,a s this show is just not a reality show.
I have a short memory, but do Rosita and Sasha really know what Rick is planning. Has he made his intentions known to the entire group? But I do understand the girls need to want their own vengeance on Negan. Rosita was in love with Abraham and he was killed, so her Latin temperament wants to extract her own vengeance. Pausable--maybe, entertaining, I think so.
For me, I really don't think Sasha is going to get all the way to Negan and kill him. She may be doomed. I kind of figured Eugene becoming a turncoat now, as he has an important 'job' as part of the Saviors, but I do believe if he is pushed to a certain extreme, he will revert back. Like if Sasha is caught and he has the ability to help her, I believe he will.
What I don't get is we keep getting bits and pieces of Jesus, and we like what we see, yet he continues to remain in the background , even though his character could be a winner. Why they don't sort of 'promote' him to 'star' status, I don't know,
Did I miss something or did he admit he was gay? Didn't he say something like he has boyfriends?
Over all, as I said, not the best episode, but it still piques my interest enough to want more. I agree with Weeze that there will be no battle this season, but maybe the opener next year.
