TWDTT 063 – The First Day of the Rest of Your Life (S7E16)

As The First Day of the Rest of Your Life is the last episode of season 7 of The Walking Dead, there is one thing for sure we can all agree on: there are no more episodes in season 7! This show has definitely taken us on a roller coaster this season, with plenty of ups and downs for all fans. Whether you liked or disliked this latest episode, no one can really say for sure where future seasons will take us. Another character’s journey has come to a close, and what a shocking ending it was. Why did Negan say she had him wrapped around her little finger? Must have been the beach ball sized lady nuts.

TWDTT 062 – Something They Need (S7E15)

Something They Need is the penultimate episode of the seventh season and is the one where they finally go to Oceanside. It’s also the one where Sasha has to make a decision about her future. And it’s also the one where we get a character named Rapey Davey. But, this isn’t Friends, it’s The Walking Dead where the future is uncertain. Rick and the gang go to Oceanside and take all of their guns, but promise to bring them back. Will they be able to keep this promise? Sasha tells Negan that she will join him, but then tells Eugene that she doesn’t want to be used to hurt her friends and asks for his help. How will she get out of the situation she has created for herself?

TWDTT 061 – The Other Side (S7E14)

The Other Side, also known as the antepenultimate episode of season 7 of The Walking Dead, was a rather middle of the road episode for the two of us. While it wasn’t terrible, it didn’t really knock our socks off either. This episode mainly focused on the unlikely–and reckless–pairing of Sasha and Rosita, with a little bit of the Hilltop sprinkled in for good measure. While we know what it is that motivates them, it’s hard to understand why they are making such rash decisions. It also seems unlikely that Sasha will survive her decision.

TWDTT 060 – Bury Me Here (S7E13)

Bury Me Here is the title of the 13th episode of The Walking Dead this season, and it was also what one character wanted, and, in the end, got. That character was Richard, and the one who buried him, both literally and figuratively was Morgan. Although the previews lead us to believe that this was a Carol-centric episode, it was really all about Morgan. Morgan was the one who arguably had the biggest character change this episode, a change that was brought about ultimately by Richard, the one he buried. What a circle of life and death this episode was; and it also brought a little rearranging and mind-changing.

TWDTT 059 – Say Yes (S7E12)

Say Yes is the next episode of The Walking Dead and there was a lot of yes in this episode. Michonne and Rick said yes to each other, Jadis said yes to Rick’s deal, Sasha said yes to Rosita’s ridiculous plan, and Tara said yes to herself when she (we think) decided to tell Rick about all the guns at Oceanside. What will be the result of all this yes? Probably something pretty spectacular, but we won’t find out next week! Next week looks to be a Carol-centric episode, which is quite alright with this podcaster. I hope she has a come to Jesus moment and will be ready to join the fight against the Saviors.

TWDTT 058 – Hostiles and Calamities (S7E11)

Hostiles and Calamities is the next episode of The Walking Dead, and it is an all Saviors all the time episode. If you couldn’t tell, neither one of us really cared too much for this episode. However, one bright spot, for at least one of us, is that Dwight gets beat up. Even though we didn’t, we always like it when our listeners enjoy the show!

TWDTT 057 – New Best Friends (S7E10)

New Best Friends are what Rick and the gang found in this episode, as well as a porcupine walker and a wire cat statue. While Winslow didn’t survive the encounter, hopefully the cat found a new home with Michonne. Also hopefully,

TWDTT 056 – Rock in the Road (S7E9)

What an episode back from hiatus! Rock in the Road showed us all the things we wanted, and none of the stuff we didn’t. Like Brian said, it was Negan without Negan. Unfortunately, even though I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan, a little Negan goes a long,

TWDTT 055 – TWD News & Other Stuff

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Yup… just shy of two months! But, in a few more days, our beloved show, The Walking Dead, returns for the second half of Season 7!!! We can’t wait to talk about it with you! We have news for The Walking Dead, read what we know about 7B, and if you don’t mind to listen, we also talked about some of the other TV and movies we watched during the hiatus!

TWDTT 054 – Hearts Still Beating (S7E8)

There are many Hearts Still Beating after the mid-season break for season 7 of The Walking Dead, but a few that have been stopped forever. Thankfully it was Spencer, unfortunately, it was also Olivia. Some characters weren’t on the road to learn the lesson that Rick learned, but some were and didn’t learn it good enough. I’m looking at you, Rosita, and now Eugene is paying the price for your stubbornness. I hope she has now learned her lesson, the lesson he tried to tell her when he told her that it might not be her that pays the price for her actions. Hopefully she will remember those words and how mean she was to Eugene and work extra hard to get him back.
