Who is IT? Warning TWD spoiler alert?

So the new TWD season will be coming up. Who do yo think is IT?



My votes are:

1. Abraham. He presents the most danger to Nagen because of his size.

2. Maggy. She is pregnant and is too to be pretty much worthless and a burden to the Nagen clan.

3. Glen. Just because the writers seem to want to get him off of the set.

But it might not be Nagen since supposedly the actor was recently interviewed on the set. Unless he could have been there in some kind of advisory capacity?


I don't see mullet man as being IT. He has a brain and that might be useful to Nagen.


And why are the evil characters on TWD, so darn likeable anyway.

I agree about it being Abraham. The most recent preview has Nagen talking to Rick about his right hand man (Nagen's) and hints that maybe he just killed Rick's.

I also read an article that said it might be Maggie. While possible, I think Abraham, Glenn, or Darryl are more likely

Backlash over killing a pregnant woman, so it won't be Maggie. I like the show but its getting way too gloomy with over the top violence.

^Perhaps. Although, they didn't have a problem killing off Lori - granted it wasn't a murder. Or the girl Carol put down for that matter

nobody thinks it'll be mishone?! she is sitting to rick's right, although so is daryl. I don't think it's abraham, he's too burly and loyal, and negan would try to use him.

I think it will be Abraham.

In the comics Abraham was killed off by an arrow through his eye/head like Denise(the makeshift Dr./Nurse) was in the TV show, so now I think they will bring balance to the force by taking out Abraham.

Plus Abraham dumping Rosita for Sasha and his talking about the future with Sasha is a foreboding that it will be him.

I was done after season 6. Too much of a mamby pamby soap opera snoozefest. Too little action. It's turned into a Mad Libs game. Insert new antagonist, defensive setting, individuals with xyz skillsets...build/snooze for several eps with eventual offing of said antagonist. Repeat.

That, and it's hard not to read spoilers if you open any TWD thread on any forum...including last night's show.


It would be great if gas-powered vehicles were no longer an option due to a lack of gas and/or problems with the remaining gas. There must be a few refineries, transport/trucking, and 7-11s still operating what with the ease with which they seem to drive everywhere.
Yeah I know you've got to largely suspend your belief in reality. But still, it'd be nice to have some elements of realism (like completely running out of vital stuff) included. If/when the show ends, it'd be good to do so in part due to a "tapering down" of supply availability where basic existence becomes the challenge...not even including the z-factor.

Agreed somewhat. They did start to address replenishing bullets last season - not crossbow bolts surprisingly though. Medical care and food were also issues resulting in working with the Hilltop community.

Getting back to this - I watched Westworld last night at 9:00, thinking I would catch TWD on demand today or later in the week. In the past, I hadn't had any problem with spoilers ruining the show. I'd see 'em, then still watch the show. The clips I've seen and the articles I've read gave me no impetus to actually watch it this week. Too gruesome added to the feeling that I'm being too overtly manipulated by the show's producers.

On a similar topic, I stopped watching FTWD after an episode or two this season. I stopped partially because it felt like "same old, same old" and partially because I just didn't give a damn about even one character. So many / too many flawed people - it got to a point where I actually wanted some of the main characters to either get bitten or shuffle off some other way.

Well, it was fun while it lasted!

I agree. I didn't watch the episode, but this gives me a good opportunity to jump the shark. I'm not big on watching a lot of tv anyways... in fact I hate being tied to watching a show on TV. Maybe 10 years from now when walking dead is over, I'll binge watch them... but I might not even care at all by then to bother.

^ Agreed. I didn't watch the episode last night (and didn't regret that decision, either). I asked a co-worker this morning what went on, and I am most definitely done with the show now. Altair 4 mentioned feeling manipulated by the producers- that sums up my feelings as well. Stop dragging the show on for 3/4s of the season and then always leave on a cliffhanger to get people to watch again. I'm tired of it. I'll binge-watch next fall when it comes out on Netflix, maybe. But now Sunday nights are my own again.

I've never thought The Walking Dead was a great show, but have always found it an easy enough show to watch and for the last few years have often let half a season or more pass, then do some binge watching to catch up.

The most recent episode was very much inspired by the comic source material, so . . . . .

Did anyone watch the interview with the actor that plays Nagan? He is a fairly little guy. They make him look so huge.

How did the hatchet get on top of the camper? Then suddenly it was on the ground. Or different hatchets?

He looks unhealthy with how skinny his body is.

This is the same guy who played The Comedian in The Watchmen.

That's what I was thinking too. They didn't show him finding the hatchet and climbing up the ladder with it (else why not use it to chop off some walker grabby-arms?), and if he somehow grabbed it on the way to his running jump, they didn't make that clear either.
