Dear The Walking Dead,
This season sucks balls!
My recap of last week and the first 6 episodes of this season can be summed up in one GIF.
Well said Shia, well said. This is a visual representation of how it has been to watch every episode since the premiere. I need some Carol in my life. I need Daryl to be a bad ass again. I need Rick to quit being a baby. I need something! Anything! Please The Walking Dead, do something.
Dead so far this season
RIP Sgt. Abraham Ford
RIP Glenn Rhee
Most Likely to Die Next
Is Heath actually dead? What does PPP even mean?
My boner if I have to see anymore Rick and Michonne kissing scenes. You can tell the actors think that they are kissing their siblings because there is nothing romantic about it at all.
Gregory is a dumb dick and is going to get himself and others killed.
Spencer is going to die. Maybe not this week, but he's totally dying.
The current Mrs. Negan is going to do something dumb, right?
The kid hanging around Morgan is going to get it.
Punchy McDickhead in the back of the truck is definetely getting murdered soon.

"The mid-season finale is coming up and something HAS to happen or the show is going to risk their audience just never coming back. This season is boring and spread out too far and the show runners have to know that it got away from them. It will be a chore getting everyone closer and on the same page and I'm not sure how many people are up for that chore. It's starting to remind me of the boring Governor seasons where he stuck around about 12 episodes too long."
I wrote this last week and now, with only 2 episodes left, we are further away from the premiere than we have been before and have been stuck in a seemingly never-ending journey around a boring universe the show is desperately trying to expand. Is the show trying to grow into Game of Thrones? There just aren't enough compelling people and plots for that to happen. We know they want to expand and maybe they were hoping Fear the Walking Dead would be the outlet for that, but it hasn't been and this attempt is making it hard to stay engaged.
