Not talking about Caryl here but the show in general, is it just me or is the entire negan story and rising up to go to war just really boring? Boring because it's so predictable, there's no question TF will win, no question that Carol will return, no question that Rick will survive and go on making speeches into oblivion, the whole of 7b is just filler to a few nice fight scenes at the end, nothing deeper than "hey if we work together we can fight evil!" When did TWD get so basic?
Honestly, Caryl is the only thing that makes me stay with this show. The scene effects are terrible, the plots are terrible, and it speaks for itself that the Caryl scenes were the best of the episode, because it’s what Twd should be about, HUMAN CONNECTIONS. Not just negan negan negan, Rick being terrible but everyone praising him and the next cool Walker. Like, really… with all its flaws, I miss season ½/3 so much
The bests episodes of season 4 and 5 were when they dealt with the emotional baggage all of them carry around.
Season 6 and 7 suck so much cause they sidelined that over… some weird guy in a leather jacket who speaks into infinity plus cool walkers.
Also, I think they need to invest the money they have in better effects and start dealing with stuff that will add to the emotional level of the relationships instead of taking the focus away from it. What about the next villain being actually some natural disaster? What about something like people betraying each other and communities working together to rebuild the world and showing this progress. What about dealing with someone imune? They have soooo many options they can explore, but they don’t leave the mediocre field, it’s sad.
