TWDTT 130 - Promises Broken (S11E7)

Shhhhhh, we’re whispering out here…

For episode 130 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Brian (in limited fashion), and LT talk through The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 7 titled Promises Broken. It was written by Julia Ruchman and directed by Sharat Raju.

Maggie and Negan have a plan and Eugene gets himself in a Pickle.

There were a lot of interesting things going on in this episode. Maggie and Negan have a brutal heart to heart, Eugene and the gang are working off their debt to the commonwealth but it ends up in a real pickle for Eugene. Yumiko is learning the ins and outs of the commonwealth political goings-on but kind of gets her newly reunited brother in trouble. So we will have a lot to see coming up in the two episodes left for this year.

We do talk about Daryl and Jane and the whole Reapers thing that is coming to a head. Pope is a kind of an unstable variable but what that means in the end we do not know. But we sure know Maggie, Elijah, and tag along Negan have a surprise that is slowing walking to Meridian. Next week looks to be pretty awesome.

We want to start offering Patrons a real reason to stay on our Patreon and to get more people to become Patrons. As such, we are going to start experimenting with bringing you some new content that will really make it worth your while to be subscribed.

We are going to try offering Patrons early access to our regular episodes. These versions of the episodes will be less polished than the final version of the podcast, will largely be uncensored, may contain things we fix up in the final version (like when we speak over each other, awkward silences, etc.), content that we remove from the final version and may not have all of the sound effects mixed in properly (and in the case of this episode, doesn’t have the beginning and ending music mixed in at all).

To do this, we edited a different version of the podcast where we’re all on one single track, and only edited major things. Aside from that, the process is similar to how we’ve been doing it. We think, at least from an editing perspective, this was a major success. In fact, this process may influence how we edit the main version of the podcast going forward.
