5 Moments from “Dead or Alive Or”

1.When dead radio guy saves Gabriel’s life.. or did he?!

Poor ole preacher. What’s the lesson here peeps? Do we even try to save ourselves? Gabriel used to be the biggest scary cat. Then, even with an infection (or because of the infection) he wanders off into a forest, with a devil may care attitude, potentially full of walkers, saviours or both. And at first it appears that not all those who wander are lost, as he manages to save himself, find “Radio Guy” and his stash of ABs, keys a map. After his blind, gun, Han Solo-like (obscure nerd reference) heroic rescue of the Doc, it looks like his bloody blind faith may literally have set his course, only if his path is right back to the people he was trying to escape.

2. When Swamp Walkers are no match for Daryl and co…

Hell to the NO – that swamp is a no go zone, even if offered to ride on Daryl’s back. It is still perplexing that A. you would chose to go “Bear-Hunt style” into a thick, dark, Walker filled swamp armed only with your own bare hands in the first place and B. that all of them made it out alive? Surely there was a random chomping head lying at the bottom that at least one of them should have stepped on?

3. When Dwight leads the Saviours away…

Dwight, the ultimate flip flopper… the bad guy with a good heart? Has he finally made the ultimate choice to turn his back on Negan and the Saviours and side with Team Rick and can he be trusted if he goes back with them? Side note –  Daryl’s little outburst is the most we have heard him speak… since Amy #justsaying #tear

4. When Daryl leads the people of Alexandria safely to the Hill Top and informs the others of Carl’s fate…

Oh that silent montage of grief, cut our hearts out with a spoon, again! And then there is Enid… At least Carl delivers the doctor Gabriel couldn’t. And… #RicksHere!

5. When Negan and Lucille hatch possibly the most merciless plan yet…

Negan keeping his hand firmly on his… Lucille announces a truly medieval next level strategy. Of course it would have to be freaking good guy with a bad heart Eugene who suggests this final solution of biblical proportions straight to Kim Jun Negan, remind us again why they fought to save the guy? Just when you think the Saviours can’t get any more brutal… Cue special effects crew and hold on to your heart this is about to get very, bloody, messy.

*Honourable mention*

“Rick and his merry band of pricks” – quote of the season so far from our pal Negan.
