The Walking Dead Season 8, Episode 7 Recap: "I Am a Small Person"

Welcome to Bleeding Cool's weekly recap of AMC's The Walking Dead Season 8, where we take a look at a too-damn-smart-for-his-own-good Eugene (Josh McDermitt) taking to the friendly skies to save Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors; Rosita (Christian Serratos) believing in Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) more than Tara (Alanna Masterson) and Daryl's (Norman Reedus) "revised plan;" and Rick engages in a little "desperation tango" with Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) in last week's Episode 7, 'Time for After'.

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.
