Welcome to Bleeding Cool's weekly recap of AMC's The Walking Dead Season 8, and it seems that both Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) are having problems with their respective lieutenants following orders and breaking ranks in last week's Episode 6, 'The King, the Widow, and Rick'.
So my overview/recap of the episode is waiting patiently for your eyeballs below, along with some Spare Parts that I picked up along the way that I thought you might find interesting. You can also check out the transcript of my live-blog of the episode here or by clicking the link after the video.
But one quick thing before we get our recap under way…
Just to be clear, this is not a "formal review" — more of a recap/review/stream of consciousness mash-up "monster" all its own — but I will be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode. Just something to keep in mind before watching or re-watching the episode. Definitely not looking to have angry fellow geeks outside my apartment with pitchforks and torches because I slacked off on the spoiler warnings.
Here's a look at The Walking Dead Season 8's mid-season penultimate episode: Episode 7, 'Time for After'; as well as a sneak preview of where Negan gets some one-on-one "quality time" with Eugene (Josh McDermitt) to explain to him in detail why it's in both of their best interests that Eugene find a way to keep the Saviors alive:
The Walking Dead S08E07, 'Time for After': Negan has to enlist the help of his lieutenants in solving a huge issue facing the Sanctuary; Rick and the group continue to enact the plan.
