Well it seems everyone has kicked the shit out of most of the things I came to look for; excellent.
To the Carol issue. Is her turn in the graphic novel? I hate it so much. That said I’m intrigued by the Wolverines who show up and how that will play out.
Who’s left in Alexandria? I mean, that we care about?
Neegan and the Saviors. OK, so they’re a pretty impressive crew. Big. Must take a lot of work to feed all those mouths. And pre-Rick and Co. Alexandria escaped their notice this whole time?
That Alicia Witt band was pretty much 50-50 men and women and women were calling the shots even. Why is that not apparent in any of the other run-ins with them along the way?
Related to this, and not to be creepy, but how come there isn’t any implications at any point during the making of threats and menace that the big strong men are going to take all your women and, you know, have their way with them? So the successful 21st Century post-Apocalyptic survivors not above the ‘might makes right’ way of doing things. But they draw the line at sexism and racism and bigotry too because apparently every band of survivors must be a polyglot of ethnicity.
And was it the intent for the Saviors en masse to only show Hilltop a little of their hand to keep them guessing at their real numbers? Why? Why not roll in all your heavies, make an example of someone, and put them all to work and talk half of everything or whatever? Besides the fun that Rick’s folks had in figuring out the mystery of Neegan and the Saviors, how does this help them or make any sense?
