Kirkman said his "ideal" pick is currently Jon Hamm to play Negan, but I think he expects Hamm will be "too big" for the show by the time Negan shows up.

Hamm did this little show, so anything is possible

but he will probably try to distance himself from AMC I think

I expected Negan to die one of the most gruesome deaths ever, but im guessing he will escape to cause trouble later

or they might visit him from time to time Hannibal style

hopefully the show kills him properly when the time comes

I'm reading them by Volume, so waiting for the next one to drop(August 5th). I guess I could just grab them free online, but I'll just wait for the physical copy.

If Terminus was suppose to replace The Hunters...I'm disappointed. The Hunters storyline was so much better.

Though I do think showing the group locking the Terminus folks up and raping them and what not could definitely be an early shot at Negan's crew.

Interesting little thing they threw in for the comic readers with Glenn almost getting hit with the bat. Really hope he eventually meets Lucille.

Turns out the guy in the car that came out with all the crazy hair/beard was the same guy that was keeping the Terminus people locked up earlier. So doubtful that it had anything to do with Negan or his minions.

Perhaps Father Gabriel means we'll still end up running into the Hunters later.

Saw the discussion in the other thread, but felt like I'd accidentally spoil something for someone if I posted too much.

So Bob is definitely Dale, which is what I expected to happen IF we saw the Hunters this season. I'm glad they're doing this storyline, but I'm a little disappointed they morphed the backstory of The Hunters from the comics. I really thought the comics gave them such a dark/crazy past that it made them that much creepier/memorable. This is more of a revenge ordeal than "oh shit, those people are fucked up and ate their kids."

Also after I saw this post in the other thread:
Quote :
"so was Bob in shock/having a tough time dealing with what happened at the Food Bank? The way he was acting I thought that maybe he was hiding the fact that he had been bitten and was going outside to kill himself before he changed. But obviously not.."


Was very tempted to say something about Bob's leg being "tainted" if he was bitten, haha.

yeah it will be interesting to see which way they go with it

I wonder if the end of the termites will be black silhouette, or if rick will line them up over a trough

and instead of "not exactly" rick should say "nothing personal"

looks like the hunters are gone, they could have drawn that out a few more episodes, kinda disappoint

im thinking this whole beth thing will be a non-comic story element, kinda like the Spanish flu

maybe the doc from the oath will show up

I didn't see how they could really drag out the Hunters, it was a really brief storyline in the comics. Felt like they did the whole Terminus angle just to kind of give it a little more story.

I thought the story of the Hunters from the comics was better, but never really saw that lasting more than 2-3 episodes without moving far too slow.

Curious to see how the next few episodes play out. Will it be 1 episode of a flashback to Beth being abducted, then an episode of what led Daryl back to the church, or will we jump around with multiple story lines?

Really wanted them to all just get on the damn bus and head for DC.

I have a feeling next week's episode will be what went on with Daryl and Carol concurrently with the hunters. And that'll include flashbacks with Beth and where she's been for the last few weeks.

^Nope. Beth is not a character in the comics, and this whole "hospital" storyline is no where to be found. Feel like since Carol is dead well before this point in the comics, and Daryl and Beth are no where to be found in the comics, they created this side story just to give them something.

Personally hating it so far, but do like that they did drop one reference that might encourage our group to finally head North by the end of the season. Felt like they should have just kept the group together after the run in with the Hunters and moved on with the storyline from the comics.

As soon as Noah mentioned Richmond, VA, I was hoping for an Alexandria tie in. Moving forward, I assume Noah will join Rick's crew to go North, and lead them to Alexandria.

If I remember correctly, they were going to DC in the comics as well, but Eugene got exposed on the way. I think Eugene had a radio he was using to communicate with DC, but it was really broken, and had been for a while, and it was finally found out he was lying and really a high school science teacher. It was shortly after this, they came across someone from Alexandria (Aaron?).

However, there is no mention of this radio in the show, so idk how they are going to expose Eugene.

I don't see the TV show ever making it that far into the comics.

In the comics, they first reach Alexandria in Volume 12 (#67-72). I don't see the TV show making it to Alexandria until the end of season 5 at the very earliest. They still need to resolve this Beth/hospital crap, expose Eugene, meetup with Morgan, possibly encounter a massive horde, possibly Maggie's attempted suicide, plus whatever else they make up.

Since the Whisperers are not until comic #132 and 133 (end of Volume 22, beginning of Volume 23), the TV show will be on season 11 or 12, if it ever makes it that far. I would be very disappointed in the TV series ended before Negan, which is drawn out between Volumes 17-22, and is technically not 100% resolved yet. I can see the show calling it quits after the Negan war is done.

With that said, the Whisperers might be the scariest concept of the whole series so far. I don't think they will make it an epic drama like the Saviors and Negan.

this isn't really a show that you can "end". I've wondered for a while now what the end game plan is for this show. It can't go on forever...no show ever has...and it will never catch up with the comic book...so i'm just wondering where its going.

I still feel a good ending point for the show would be the war between the Saviors and Rick. Even the comic did about a 3-4 year jump after this.

maybe they should pull an "x-files" and make all out war part 2 into a movie and release it in theatres between seasons lol

(i thought it was a bad idea they way they did fight the future, but some people liked it)

Starting to think we may never get to Negan at this pace, haha. I enjoy that they've just picked up Season 7 and they're actually on the road(half the crew), but they're only 15 miles north of the church and haven't even made it to SC yet.

Hopefully they'll jump some of the travel, ready for them to get back together and get to VA.

I think the crew has definitely gotten too big at this point though, I expect some bodies to start dropping soon(Carol, Tyrese, Sasha would all be good candidates).

Not that I recall but I could be forgetting something.

I think they were more or less pointing out how ridiculous/horrible the whole van landing on it's wheels off the flip was.

Remember, the whole Beth/Daryl/Carol thing isn't in the comics, so most of this stuff doesn't have any direct ties to any of the stories/references from the comics.

Yea, but I was thinking maybe they tried to tie in some comic book elements.

And I was thinking last night how impossible it would have been for that van to land on its wheels.

^^Yes, 0% chance that van does a full flip and lands on it's wheels given the height of that bridge, angle it fell at, and lack of speed. Much more likely they nose-dive or land upside down.

^I mean when the premise of the show is a zombie apocalypse, I'm fine buying into that if I want to watch the show.

The flipping the van thing just looked horrible and made no sense. Still not sure why they thought that was a great scene to add to this side-story. Pretty sure this side-story is going to end with one of the main crew dying, just wish they wouldn't take half a season to wrap it up.

Liked the foreshadowing in the last episode.

The radio broadcast talking about "Republic", "vigilante groups", etc. Then couldn't help but smile when Glen picked up the baseball bat. Not to mention it was clear that Richmond group was attacked by humans and not overrun by zombies.

Hoping they'll make it to Alexandria(or the equivalent) by the end of the season.
