Tonight, AMC is airing a special The Walking Dead eighth season finale/Fear the Walking Dead fourth season premiere crossover event. Last week on The Walking Dead, Negan returned to the Saviors, who were surprised to see that he was still alive. Negan quickly dispatched Simon for his betrayal, chaining his walker body to the fence of the Saviors’ compound. During the chaos of Negan and Simon’s brawl, Dwight helped Gregory escape, sending him back to the Hilltop to warn Rick and the gang about Negan’s plan of attack. However, Negan later revealed to Dwight that he knew of his betrayal and purposely told him a fake plan so that he would in turn feed it back to Rick. Despite Dwight’s actions, Negan announced he wasn’t going to kill him just yet. Meanwhile, Daryl and Rosita kidnapped Eugene in order to take him back to the Hilltop. However, Eugene didn’t want to leave, so he forced himself to vomit all over Rosita as a distraction and ran away. Finally, Michonne called Negan over the radio in order to read the note Carl had left for him. In the letter, Carl pleaded with Negan, asking him to call off the war, but the words seemed to fall on deaf ears as Negan was still planning to go forward with his plan to completely eliminate Rick and the gang.

Will this battle with the Saviors finally come to an end tonight, or will the writers drag this on for yet another season? Has Eugene really changed sides, or does he have some sort of plan he’s hatching to sabotage the Saviors’ ammo? Will Rick and the gang fall into Negan’s trap, or will they figure out his real plan in time? Will any major characters not survive tonight’s episode? I really hope we see the end of Negan in tonight’s finale so that the show can move on to some other storyline next year!

Following tonight’s finale, Morgan will make his way from The Walking Dead to Fear the Walking Dead. I’m really curious to see how this is going to work, as Fear takes place before The Walking Dead and in another part of the country. Will Fear do a time jump? Or will we see a pre-The Walking Dead Morgan? Will the helicopter we’ve seen a few times this season on TWD play a role in transporting Morgan to the other series?

On tonight’s The Walking Dead season finale, “Wrath,” the communities join forces in the last stand against the Saviors. The season’s story lines culminate in all-out war.

And in tonight’s Fear the Walking Dead season premiere, “What’s Your Story?” a lone traveler’s wearying journey is interrupted by new acquaintances, some who become friends, others who becomes foes.

Catch all the action tonight on AMC starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Timeless, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Last Man on Earth, Killing Eve, Worst Cooks in America, Trust, Silicon Valley, and Barry.

Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead Special Review

The stop-motion animated series Robot Chicken has ventured into the worlds of Star Wars and DC Comics for previous specials, but for its latest 22-minute themed special, the series takes on The Walking Dead. As the special opens, a nerd is visiting the U.S. Walking Dead Museum, which was established to honor and celebrate the heroes who saved the humans from the walkers, found a cure to the walker virus, and brought an end to the Walk-pocolypse—the group known as “Rick and the Gang”. The young man acting as the tour guide for the museum is being quite liberal with the facts, getting all sorts of information wrong. This angers an older Carl who is hiding in the shadows. He pulls the nerdy tourist aside to correct this information, and starts to recount the events that really happened.

The special is a collection of shorts based on many of the memorable/major events from the first 7 seasons of The Walking Dead. These are a fun mix of recreations, parodies, comical speculation as to what happened after the moments we saw on the show, and other general craziness set in the The Walking Dead universe. There are some funny running jokes such as people thinking Carl is a girl, due to his long hair. There are also some really hilarious musical moments such as Negan singing about his signature dip move, a chained-up Merle singing a love duet with a walker, and the Terminus folks (led by he voice of Daniel Radcliffe) singing a welcome song to Rick and the gang about how they have no plans to eat them. There is also a really creative sequence that is shot from the POV of a walker—we hear his inner monologue as he searches for food and falls to his death (again). And another sequence gives a Superman-like origin to Lucille the bat. Overall, the writing is quite clever, and you can really tell those involved are big fans of The Walking Dead.

Tonight, AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its eighth season. As the first half of the season came to a close, the Saviors retaliated in full force, doing devastating damage to our combined force of good guys. They stopped Maggie and her Hilltop caravan, killed one of the citizens as a show of force to get Maggie back in line, and sent her back to the Hilltop to keep producing their crops/food supply. In the Kingdom, Ezekiel set fires to buy his people some time to escape, before turning himself over to the Saviors. And Dwight stuck to his agreement, helping lure some of the Saviors into a trap that Daryl and Rosita had set but blowing his cover in the process. Meanwhile, Negan and his men attacked and burned Alexandria to the ground. Negan was out for vengeance, and Carl offered himself up as a sacrifice, but Negan wasn’t having any of that. Carl and the others managed to escape the town as it burned via the sewers. However, at the end of the episode we (and Rick) discovered why Carl was so willing to offer himself up — he had been bitten and it was now only a matter of time before he would join the ranks of the undead.

Will they really kill off Carl? (This seems highly likely, despite the showrunner’s recent backpedaling.) And if so, what does this mean for Rick? This whole series started with Rick’s desperate search to find his son — how will Rick change without this driving force in his life? And how will the rest of the group be affected by the loss of Carl? How will Dwight fit into the group now that he can’t go back to the Saviors? Will Eugene ever man up and do the right thing, or will he continue to stick with the Saviors? And will our group ever manage to kill Negan?! I can’t say that I wasn’t extremely disappointed with the way the first half of the season ended — I’ve kind of been disappointed with the series as a whole ever since the arrival of Negan. I really hope the series can course correct in this second half of the season and become the great show it once was. And if this is his final episode, I hope that Carl gets a great send-off and that he can make one final big move on his way out that helps our group.

On tonight’s midseason premiere, “Honor,” Rick faces new difficulties after a battle. Meanwhile, the fight continues in other communities as core members face hard decisions.

See how the group fares tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Celebrity Big Brother, A.P. Bio, Worst Cooks in America, Crashing, and Counterpart.

The Walking Dead Bingo!

If you like The Walking Dead and playing games, specifically bingo, you might be interested in this one… You can technically play this with any show, although this card has info specifically for TWD, such as Crossbow Kill, Rick avoids eye contact, and two Negan-centric ones. But it gives you the general idea to use to shape it for any show. If you have watch parties or love watching shows and then chatting with friends about them, you could totally use this to add some fun to it all. My family and I have played bingo with commercials during the Super Bowl, and that was fun too, so being able to do it with a show we all watch would be kind of awesome!


(To download the full version, simply click on the bingo card and then save the big version that comes up!)

 
 
If you’re a bingo fan, you can also play online bingo games like I do. It’s a fun time waster when you want to just relax and kind of turn off your brain for a while. Check out the other games available as well.

Tonight, AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for its eighth season. Last season opened with the reveal that Negan had brutally murdered Abraham and Glenn. Our band of survivors was forced to cooperate and meet Negan’s demands or more of them would die. Negan also took Daryl, and later Eugene, as recruits for his Saviors. While Daryl managed to escape and return to Alexandria, Eugene seemed content in his new position. Meanwhile, Rick and his group secretly plotted to fight back, joining forces with some other communities that were also being oppressed and threatened by Negan. Maggie and Rosita worked on convincing the Hilltop to join them (which caused Gregory to defect to the Saviors), while Carol and Morgan befriended King Ezekiel, the tiger-loving leader of the Kingdom, and Rick made a deal with the garbage-dwelling Scavengers. However, when it came down for the showdown with Negan, the Scavengers double-crossed Rick and aided the Saviors. The Alexandrians managed to turn the tide of the battle, and Negan and his Saviors fled, but they were badly wounded and this was only the first battle is what promises to be a much bigger war.

Now that the gauntlet has been thrown, there’s no turning back for these three communities. How will they stave off Negan and the Saviors? Can they recruit others to also join their cause? While it seems like Eugene has turned against his friends, he did give Sasha the poison and had to know she was going to use it to attack Negan. Is he really a spy working in the enemy camp? It also seemed like Dwight might be willing to fight for Rick—could the two of them help to cause unrest in Negan’s army? Will Negan discover what Eugene did, and how will he react? Will we lose any more of our favorite characters this season? (I think that’s probably a given, but who?!)

While I liked Negan at first, I wish they’d just kill him already and move on to a new big villain. It seems kind of ridiculous that he treats his Saviors horribly, rules by fear, and they all hate him, and yet no one has even attempted to assassinate him in his sleep?!

On tonight’s premiere, “Mercy,” Rick and his group, along with the Kingdom and Hilltop, have banded together to bring the fight to Negan and the Saviors.

To see if Rick and his group challenge Nathan tonight, tune in to AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Ten Days in the Valley, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Good Behavior, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and White Famous.
