I'm originally from Columbus, but now reside in NC. I am a youth and worship minister at a church in High Point. Outside of the Buckeyes, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors (skiing, hiking, camping, kayaking), riding roller coasters, playing frisbee golf, listening to/playing music, and watching movies and TV (LotR, 24, Psych).

Well, don't forget that we have not actually seen Negan's brutality yet. Plus this was the pg-13 version. When the blu-ray comes out, it will be full on Negan, complete with his love of the f-bomb. I think the point of Negan, though, is that you kind of like the guy. He is charismatic and funny, and if he wasn't killing the people we've come to know and love over 6 years, we'd probably love him like we do Rick or Daryl.

That's why I was so angry with the ending. The whole episode was about Rick realizing that he is in way over his head. It was about completely breaking the group, stripping away their confidence until they realized how screwed they really were/are. The whole purpose of each roadblock was to break them down a little more. The final scene of #100 is the group sobbing over the mangled corpse, completely broken. To me, this is the completion of that breakdown, and in doing what they did, the focus changed from a broken group to #whoisit. The reveal will not have nearly the impact in 6+ months that it would have Sunday night. Chances are most of the audience will have it spoiled by then anyways. Having been avoiding spoilers for months, the thought of having to try to avoid them until October really sucks.

This is my reasoning, as well.

This was the catalyst for her growth into a leader at Hilltop. I don't know where that push would come from without this event.

It's not that it takes that many hits to kill them. Negan just beats the person that savagely. Probably dead after 2 or 3 hits. The rest is just making a mess of someone's head for show to the group.

I don't agree with the cliffhanger ending. I get why you would do it, but I still think the other option would have had maximum impact. The last panel of #100 was chilling with the group sobbing around a mangled corpse while Negan left with a "Ta ta!" In that one panel, you saw how broken Rick's group was. The cliffhanger ending completely changed the tone of that whole scene from brokenness and sorrow to "who is it," not to mention that when we see that scene finally playout in October, it will have lost its edge from 7 months of rewatching, scrutinizing, and theorizing. Imo, it was a waste of some incredible acting by the group, and especially by JDM, by not bringing the scene to its full conclusion.

That tournament completely turned me off to a football playoff until its current format was revealed, and it still makes me dread it's inevitable expansion.

Exactly. Give many of us 11 dubbers his salary and I imagine we would put it to just as good, if not better, use. It doesn't take million dollar donations on the news to be generous.

We really like the Walmart extra bacon pizza, and then we add red onion and fresh jalapenos.
