The Final Showdown between a Storm and the Pope..

For episode 131 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, Kyle, Brian, and LT talk through The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 8 titled For Blood. It was written by Erik Mountain and directed by Sharat Raju.

Alexandia and the crew in a stormy peril and Maggie battles for Meridian .

The showdown between Maggie and the Reapers is finally here and was there some whispering butt-kicking that was had. Pope sure does have some tricks up his sleeve but Leah ended up being the final trickster. The Alexandrians face a brutal storm with walkers knocking down the doors but Rosita showed up in the end that she is still a walker killing machine. 

There was a lot of talk about where the heck is Meridian where it was a calm night but somehow Alexandria was getting its butt kicked by a storm of the century. The Hwacha, that Brian enjoys saying that word, was a puzzling choice of a weapon of mass destruction, but I guess it does send off an ominous vibe. And we get into a longer than I thought, discussion of The World Beyond. Which is starting to hold its own compared to last year. It might be good. So enjoy as Kyle, Brian, and LT as well as all our wonderful listeners feedback discuss Season 11 Episode 8th For Blood.

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.
