The Walking Dead Season 10


Recommended Posts

After a couple decent seasons in FTWD I am afraid that show has just about jumped the shark for me.  I watch simply for something to watch on a Sunday night to keep my tradition alive, but it is leaving me wanting the 'A team'.  Which is why I decided to look and see what was going on with production of season 10.  Not much going on apparently.

I am guessing October 21st for a return date.

The comics had a big thing happen 

Spoiler

Rick gets shot and killed while in a hospital bed.  He came out the way he came into the series

 

There's also a theory that the group that took Rick away is tied to Morgan and FTWD and that the end of FTWD will be the convergence of the two sets of people.

Thanks for keeping that in spoliers.  I do not want to see any of that.  

I really do not want to see the 2 groups come together, but I am guessing it will happen eventually.  They already have 2 pretty good sized characters from TWD go to FTWD.  I would guess they will promote is as 'the first time in network history 2 shows come together to form one while both are still in their run"...something along those lines.

I like Jons character from FTWD.  Strand is pretty good also.  Morgan would be back.  What would really irritate me is if they did it and then created some BS drama to make them hate each other and they end up fighting....until the 'reunite and come together' or some crap.

It makes sense to merge the shows.  I wonder if all along they have been planning some huge story where these 2 merge, we get 2-3 movies with Rick and then all of a sudden Rick is back (after taking his sabbatical to be with his family for 3-4 years)...that would be season 12 or 13 or something.  I could see them merging with FTW in season 11 or 12 then at the beginning of season 13 they bring Rick back or something.

yeah we watched too but I've got a backlog of things to finish and a few coming up... I'm just not sure we're going to keep at it.  But further backstory on Alpha and Beta made episode 2 more watchable than 1.  I guess as long as the show makes money and the actors are willing to work then it'll stay on.  The way they structure the episodes probably makes it easier to retain the talent.  They aren't required to make the same time commitment as before.

Just seems like it's all a bunch of TED talks now...

I do not think anyone is even watching anymore, but I still am....Negan....he will integrate to the point where you really think he has bought in...they will go as far as to show him killing someone to appease Alpha, then he will be the catalyst to the group defeating the whisperers...just like Eugene.  This will most likely span the rest of the season and maybe even into next season.  I feel like they are running out of ideas....which also leads me to believe FTWD will be merging with the show soon.  I am about a season behind on that show...when they showed John Dorys character firing a bullet at an axe, having the bullet split and killing 2 walkers at the same time...for no other reason that to show it is when I kind of backed out of that show.

That is my prediction....for what that is worth in a show not many people are watching any longer.  And I have to agree this season has blown so far...and it is almost over....at least this half.

Another dud, but it was a LITTLE better.  The whisperer reveal actually took me by surprise.  I knew the guy was kind of db'ish, but they wrote the character well enough to where I still thought he was alright.

That was about the only thing of note to happen really....Lydia running off because Carol "is just like my mother" was super forced.  Daryl getting mad at Carol for taking a prisoner/bringing a gun when out in the wild?  WTF is that all about?

They are forcing drama at this point, but it is still must watch for me..I have been falling asleep at points though...9pm is getting way too late for my old ***.

Coming back February 28th I believe for anyone who cares.  The synopsis for the last episode we saw for those (like me) that forgot:

Quote

With the hospital surrounded, Daryl and other survivors sneak through the horde and lead it away using a wagon and loud music; Beatrice is killed on the way. Several Whisperers make it into the hospital where Gabriel remains behind to allow the others to escape. Maggie and a masked survivor rescue Gabriel, having received Carol's letters and then saving Alden and Aaron. The Whisperers destroy the makeshift sound system, forcing Daryl's group to infiltrate the horde and kill the Whisperers one by one. After a fight with Negan, Beta is wounded by Daryl and consumed by the walkers. Lydia and Carol lead the horde over a cliff. Meanwhile, Eugene's group is captured by armed soldiers while trying to make his rendezvous, and Virgil finds an exhausted Connie near Oceanside.

6 more episodes this season, the next being titled "Home Sweet Home", then we get 24 episodes of season 11 before they kill it finally.  Spin offs with Daryl and Carol and we still have movies with Rick in the works apparently that are going to be straight up terror type movies...that may be tough to pull off.

Well that's good.  Something to watch after Wandavision.

It was really hard to remember where things stood when they gave us the season ending episode.

But I'm not sure on the spinoffs.... we might have had enough.  I haven't been watching any of the new series they did.  Maybe the cliff notes version is all I need.

Seeing Maggie was..... refreshing.

I wish they had spent a few min recapping things though.  

When she was talking about where she was I assume that's references to the other shows in the franchise?  She went to Knoxville?  The Smokeys didn't get in the way?

Close to a free trial run on AMC+ to get caught up.  4 episodes in, 2 left this year and a 7 day free trial waiting for me on Amazon Prime.

I am actually excited to get caught up regardless of where the show has gone and is going.  It is still my show.  Last episode this year is supposed to air in 11 days...which means I have about 3-4 days before I start the free trial and binge the last 6 episodes.

Well free trial activated and got 2 episodes in last night.  

The writing feels weird, but it may be because of how long we have gone between episodes.

For some reason I like to focus on things like timelines...it helps me wrap my head around stuff.....so all the flashbacks with Daryl looking for Rick....current day it said 5 years ago...then Carol says in that flash back that he had been looking for Rick for 2 years.  Dedication!

So we are basically 7 years removed in the current timeline from when quite a few people stopped really caring it seems because Rick WAS the backbone of the show....when he left...a lot of air kind of went out of the show.  I talked about this at length before, but we know Rick is alive.  Or at least did not die in that explosion...so either we are dealing with an amnesia type situation or a prisoner type situation.  I cannot imagine Rick NOT trying to get back in touch with his crew after 7 years.

I am wondering how they write all that because either we get his story and he never hooks back up...or we get some of his story and he does hook back up with the crew.

I am interested in this angle because I think it is coming....I think Ricks reintroduction is coming in some form ...be it the movies or back with the show or one of the spinoff shows. 

For some reason I did not think the time line flashed ahead that far...., but I forgot about the flash forward with Judith after Rick blew the bridge up.  Season 9 episode 5...almost 3 years since that episode aired.

The whole Michonne issue also...last we saw her she found something that made her think Rick was still alive after going to that island and getting drugged...then she finds a group who needs help catching up to a huge organized marching group of people...was that the end?  She has publicly said season 10 was her last and we only have a could episodes left...so she takes off looking for Rick and then is gone at least for now?  Potentially finding him and making a comeback with Rick?  If she just fades to black I would actually like that ending, because sometimes that happens in real life people just vanish, but it would feel weird from the way the show usually handles main characters.

I thought that episode with Michonne was going to lead to something else...that big group...finding that info about Rick..

Eugenes group being captured by those storm troopers...who the **** were they?

So Magna and Connie were trapped in the cave...Magna escapes by blending in with the horde and Connie later washes up on shore close to oceanside.  We have not seen much of oceanside lately either.  Virgil finds her...he is the dude who tricked and drugged Michonne on that island.

All caught up with a free 7 day sub to AMC+.  I may reup that at some point to finish up FTW and maybe get into the world beyond one.

So that was it for Michonne I guess...minus the movies.  

What did we get the last few episodes....still no idea who the storm trooper dudes are.  They SEEM ok.  Negans back story.  Then a mean mug by Maggie at Negan...she HAD her chance to kill him and decided to let him live, but now all the rage is coming back I guess...

I really have no idea where they go from here.  Last season makes me think they will do SOMETHING meaningful, but I am also thinking they are just going to drag it out so they can make some bigger splashes with movies or other spin offs.  I really do NOT want to see another season full of little skirmishes with Negan and Maggie and adding ANOTHER baddie group they have to deal with.  Move on with something more grand.  FF 20 years or something, recast Judith as a mid 20's woman who is the leader of a HUGE group or something.  Anything other than tirelessly walking through the woods looking for food while fighting another spin off baddie group.
