Why does this show insist on me yelling at my TV screen every week? Seriously, you guys, I can’t handle this show sometimes.
We start off with everyone doing their own thing. Literally. Michonne is out taking down Walkers left and right. There were a few shots during her Walker killing scene where she had two Walkers trailing behind her. Did anyone else notice that? Notice how much it looked like her pets were back? Is that a sign that the old Michonne is coming back?
Rick and Aaron are out in the wild as well, but they’re out scavaging for stuff to give to Negan. Neither Rick nor Michonne use the walkie-talkies to chat each other up. Is that a sign that the Richonne ship is sinking? I hope not.
Spencer and Father Gabriel are going out to scavenge, but Spencer is a little whiny douche about it. Which is pretty much his M.O. now. I get it Spencer, your mother, father, and brother are all dead. You’re pissed off about it. Don’t be a dick. Or, as Father Gabriel said when Spencer asked him if hating Rick was a sin, “What you’re saying doesn’t make you a sinner. But is does make you a tremendous shit. Just for now. It doesn’t have to be terminal.”
Dude, when Father Gabriel is calling you out, you know you have been a twatwaffle.
Next, we have Rosita and Eugene; they went off to “scavenge.” Really, Rosita just verbally bullies her way into getting Eugene to make her a bullet. She’s hurting right now, and I feel for her, but she was such a dick to Eugene. I love Eugene; he’s so dear. And his hair is the bee’s knees of mullets.
Finally, we have Carl. That little punk who snuck into the back of one of the Savior’s vans. Jesus hopped in there too, not knowing that Carl was in there. Carl tricks Jesus into jumping out of the van first so that the serial killer in training can go take out Negan all by himself.
Carl takes out two of Negan’s men, but Dwight takes him down. Negan decides that he likes Carl and takes him on a tour through Sanctuary. Carl sees Darryl. Carl witnesses how submissive all of Negan’s people are to him, and he also witnesses Negan’s harem of wives being terrified of him.
Negan makes Carl take his eye patch off and then mocks him until he cries. Negan seems to be honestly remorseful over that. They talk for awhile, Negan makes Carl sing him a song (hence the name of the episode), and then Negan takes Carl with him to show him how he punishes his people that mess up. You know, by sticking a burning hot iron on their faces. NBD.
Michonne traps a Savior and beats the hell out of her until she agrees to take her back to Sanctuary. Aaron and Rick find what they think is going to be a bunch of supplies, but they’re on a houseboat in the middle of a lake that has Walkers floating all around. Spencer finds a bunch of food and a compound bow. Rosita and Eugene make the bullet and end up back at Alexandria. Someone sneaks Darryl a key to get out of his closet and get away. Negan decides to take Carl back to Alexandria. While there he finds baby Judith and decides to wait for Rick to come home.
So, basically, there’s a giant shit storm awaiting Rick when he gets back. Lovely.
It’s the mid-season finale, so I want a lot of shit to happen.
