Has the tide turned in the Commonwealth?

For episode 137 of The Walking Dead Talk Through, LT and Kyle talk through The Walking Dead Season 11, Episode 14 titled The Rotten Core. It was written by Jim Barnes and Erik Mountain and directed by Marcus Stokes.

Sebastian needs to be a goner, and Maggie, Negan and the Riverbend people take a stand against the Commonwealth.

Hey Survivors, have we got an episode for you. This was a great episode that has so many future clashes between our people and the Commonwealth. Can’t wait to see how this plays out with only 2 episodes left of Part 2 of Season 11. We had two plots being played out this week. The continuation of the assault on River Bend and the sadistic games being played by Sebastian. I mean this dude better not have much left to this life. Karma is coming and I hope we get a glorious bloody result. I mean, he really, really, deserves it.

Join Kyle and LT as they discuss another great episode of The Walking Dead, Season 11, Episode 14 titled The Rotten Core.

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).
