Not to mention that those weapons,shooting full auto, would empty a magazine in a matter of seconds, yet our heroes were letting off consecutive multi-second bursts.
I'm not as down on the show as some, but this is the first time I haven't been totally bummed the season was over.

It felt very GI JOE cartoonish with the gun fire. So much of it, yet so little damage, even with point blank closed in setting.



HAHAHA Exactly!

As for the explosives, I watched the episode a second time primarily to investigate that. Here are the facts:
1) Dwight left, to return to the sanctuary, prior to them setting it up.
2) When the GPK arrived they proceeded dirty through the gates, no one stopped and the bomb was outside the gates......
3) The people wiring the bomb were Aaron, Darryl and Rosaria.

As far as I can tell, either this is a major plot oversight, tor one of those 3 is a traitor. Nether really works for me, so was it something to do with the whistling trash dude? I dunno....

There has been talk that the Saviors planted one of their own in Alexandria long ago. Many still think it is Jesus. A long term watch dog who becomes part of the community.

With what you said above, it could I guess be Aaron. It would be a major surprise but believable in a way since when he was first introduced he came out of nowhere and seemed to know where the good guys were out hunting, like he had been watching them for awhile. He obviously wasn't a candidate for getting his head smashed in the 1st episode if he's part of Negan's crew. So it COULD be possible. As he has some back story mystery to him, but he's really helped out the good guys above and beyond, but who knows. I guess that could be it or ya, it's a serious plot hole OR some unexpected thing like CAROL disarming them knowing that setting those off is not the solution to the Negan problem? Of course, SHIVA could have bit through the detonation wire, and absorbed any kick back from it, no problem! hah

Aaron makes some sense with him catching a beating from the Saviors

So does that stupid Fear The Walking Dead show start up again?? I was hoping it was cancelled.

At least it finished strongly. I'll give it a few looks. Hopefully, they will have learned their lesson about annoying characters making unlikely choices in a zombie apocalypse and they add some real men to the mix. Tired of the whiney archetypal LA homebodies they used for this show.

I can only come up with SHIVA cleared the fence (obviously), and then opened the gate up very quietly for them to enter? The cat can do a lot of things obviously.



Isn't there a backside underground entrance? In an earlier episode, didn't Aaron and Maggie (I think) exit out of Alexandria perhaps through a sewer system to head out on a mission?

Don't recall the specifics or if, in fact a true sewer, how the tiger could easily navigate it .....

But Maggie was with them and I believe she was privy to it's location.
Barney who?

YES!!!!!!!! Thats absolutely the answer. Since it was an in/out from Alexandria, you'd assume everyone in Alexandria would know about it. That was bugging me a lot...

...any flash of genius regarding why the explosives didn't go off?

The explosives didn't go off because "Fuck you, we're #1 in the ratings!"

Nothing specific but the likeliest answer is the trash people disarmed them. I am sure Rick, in his wisdom, gave up all his secrets to the group whom he just met (and more or less attempted to kill him).

I believe Dwight is a convert and stayed true to his word in helping the Survivors. He did, after all, drop a bunch of trees as promised. If he was playing both sides - doing so would've gained him nothing. I also didn't notice him shooting at anyone in the (pathetic) fire fight.

So Dwight had returned to the sanctuary prior to the explosives being set. They were in a closed truck, so I really think he isn't responsible - those doors are pretty nosey, someone would have noticed it rolling up. As for the garbage people, they approach Alexandria and roll right through the gates.... didn't see anyone stop. There was the whistle guy, but I don't think he could have opened the rolling door and done anything.....

....I watched the episode twice just to try to figure this out.

Good call HANNY on that underground sewer entrance/exit. That has to be it.

I think it will be a surprise on who disarmed the bombs. Like Carol or Morgan or even Enid. Something twisty and stupid. If it is the garbage people than it would create a plot hole as none of their people would have been able to have the time and patience required to do the disarming unless they all of a sudden had an ex military bomb specialist we didn't know about.

Great, the actress who plays Jadis has been upgraded to series regular. More "Me Jadis. You Rick. Fuck you I will." to look forward to.
The good news is that Simon has also been upgraded.

Simon is awesome, happy to see him as regular. But Jadis? I mean, she canĀ“t even put a sentence together. Agree with Jax and PR, the junkyard group and Jadis...just dumb. I was hoping they would be killed off early in season 8. Making her a regular will probably mean they will be there for most of the season. Well, her name is probably inspired by Judas and betrayal as she betrayed Rick.
