Imagine the first scene of the new season: some of the series regulars herding a giant group of walkers using noise, similar to Rick's plan for the quarry zombies a while back. The group is sent shambling away from a settlement, then the regulars go back into the settlement and we see that it's been built up significantly using the techniques from the book. The herd from the first scene wasn't the herd from the end of this season, but we've seen how they now deal with large groups of walkers (including, presumably, the herd from the end of this season). Boom, time jump. (I also thought that Rick's "they're the problem" speech was more about walkers in general, and not a huge threat from that specific herd, but it was vague enough that the writers would do well to deal with it right up front.)They cant do a time jump after pointing out the herd
Her speech did talk about building Hilltop up first. It wasn't a quick strike the way she described it, but more of a long-term goal. I think the problem there is having someone like Jesus hold onto his anger for long enough to still want to set the settlements on fire just to kill Negan after all that time. It was iffy that he'd want in on this plan in the first place, and he's going to want to tear down civilization to satisfy someone else's bloodlust?If they do a time jump they're going to have to first address the Maggie, Jesus, and Darryl coup against Rick for sparing Negan's life.
Yeah, that made no sense to me - one minute Jesus is lecturing Morgan on how "not killing people" is the way to go, and then in the next scene he's all cool with Maggie saying Negan should have been killed?Either way, I suspect Jesus will warn Rick. He was being agreeable to everything Maggie was saying but it looked like he was thinking "what the fuck are you talking about?"
And I still don't recall when Morgan went from "All Life Is Precious"(tm) to what he became. I don't recall the moment that change happened again for him. Sadly, Morgan's character has been a big part of TWD and, now, FTWD.
Morgan is crazy and damaged but he's also a good person.butt fighter wrote: Thank you for the summary.
Morgan's character is autistic...? When's he driven by conviction he devolves into a childish drone. It's not heroic or even anti-heroic. It rather reminds me of the classmate in 1st grade who insisted on eating Elmer's Glue upon getting scolded.
Oh, and I totally forgot about Logan.
Yes, they can do the time jump with the herd. This is how it was done in the comics:snakey.losttheunofficalforumfortheabcseries wrote: They cant do a time jump after pointing out the herd, they have to deal with it in some way.
