That was pretty cool. Well, except for the part where the Zombie dodged Jesus's sword fu and stabbed him in the back-- and whispered sweet nothings in his ear. And something tells me that Jesus won't be back in three days
I don't think Jesus is really dead. Definitely critically injured, but not dead. Even tho TWD is famous for killing off lead characters, I think he's too popular to die yet. I also think there's going to be a relationship between him and the other guy he was traveling with Sorry, I can't remember his name at the moment.
And on top of that, somebody forgot to lock Negan's door-- or deliberately set him free. I wish he would just freakin' die already.
I am so with you there bro, but I don't think that's going to happen. In fact I'll wager that he ends up leading that creepy necrophiliac group. Seems right up his ally, yes?
Henry turns out to have some solid character, despite his teenage whining (and possibly had a secondary motivation for moving to Hilltop, but Enid is already taken).
At first, I thought that was going to be a scene taken right out of FTWD. Where Nick and his sister got hazed when he first arrived on the farm so, I figured Henry was not going to be able to dig himself out of that big hole he jumped into and we were going to have to wait until March to see if he survived.
And the new kids on the block went with Micchone to save Eugene and the boys, so maybe suspicion of them is misplaced after all.
Eugene sure has changed. First we see him hitting on Rosetta and then we see him telling the guys to leave him behind because he was just slowing them down. Other than that, his personality hasn't changed much, which I am happy with because he makes me laugh all the time.
With the exception being the music man, I like the "new kids on the block". I'm just not sure about him yet. Do you think Michonne will end up taking them all back with her now? I think she will. TBH, I think the only reason Michonne didn't want them was because the girl with the criminal past reminded her too much of herself.
After all the ominous scenes of Zombies behaving in new and weird ways, and engaging in strategy and other cognizant behaviors, as well as Eugene theorizing that they are evolving intelligence, it's almost kind of a letdown to know that it's merely a bunch of necrophiliacs leading the pack. But still, this is something bizarrely different for the survivors to deal with.
I still don't quite understand this behavior change in the Zombies. It implies that they can be controlled just by "whispering" to them. That would mean the zombies still have some cognitive abilities? I don't buy that. Maybe if it were just the "newly/recently dead" zombies but, there were some that were so decayed, they could not just suddenly become evolved. Although, I suppose the decomposed ones could just be following the rest of them. They have always had that tendency to group together.
