I believe that Negan freed himself. That wasn't a very secure prison cell. And he had been there for 8 years and must have known that he could leave any time he wanted.

Last night's episode hit a new record level of boring. I couldn't even keep track of the characters with all the flashbacks and masks.

One interesting observation, however, is that whisperers...

The idea that Alpha (Deborah?), a stranger nobody knows or recognizes, could just wander in to the fair raises all sorts of concerns about their security. Did she walk in with a group? Nobody asked...

Adding 6 to their presumed ages before the time-jump, I am guessing that Enid is supposed to be 22-23 and Henry maybe 16-17.

The scenes with Judith were laughable. That gun should have knocked her over. And looooong conversations between people standing a foot apart while one holds a gun on the other don't happen in real...

It's been reported everywhere. You don't need to read the comics to get this information. AMC itself has said that the talking zombies are whisperers.

The speaking zombies are the new enemy, the whisperers, who are really live humans who hide among the zombies. Not sure of all the details, but the fact that these are whisperers (familiar to any...

I really can't figure out why zombies would congregate into herds, anyway. It's a pretty poor survival strategy, considering that only the leading edge is likely to find any food. And herds can be...

I probably shouldn't get so emotional about this, but that whole scene was outrageously bad. It should win an anti-Emmy! In what imaginary universe would a warrior woman like Michonne allow her good...

I believe they're going to try. Not sure if it will work. Interestingly, the actress who plays Judith is the same one who helped restart the Star Wars franchise (young Rey in The Force Awakens).

The whole "Negan as symbol" baloney is silly, too. In a time of limited resources, keeping unproductive prisoners alive is unlikely -- setting aside all the terrible things that Negan has done. There...

Yeah, I saw the 2-hour time block and thought this would be the season finale. AMC played a trick on us. I promptly switched the channel to HBO for Silicon Valley.
