I agree with the reviewer, I like Carol WAY better than I used to. Beth as well. But Fr. Gabriel needs to die AND SOON. Tired of his whining and crying. He "escapes" with no plan, no supplies, no weapon-please someone eat him! I also didn't like the contrived "Sasha so grief stricken over her boyfriend of 10 minutes, Bob, that she does something really stupid to advance the plot.." part. Looking forward to next week, my money's on Beth dying, I think Carol makes it out.

I don't want Beth to die. Close-up shots of her wide open eyes are a wonder to behold.

How come Carol Burnett got to sing and Frankie Valli didn't?

Kudos to Davis... with the sporadic style of story telling the show takes, Viola Davis is able to portray a character that grows more interesting and less "predictable" as the reveals are dolled out while keeping full attention at all times while on screen. How far gone is this character? How driven? is any of the vulnerability real... if so, which parts? keep watching.. keep guessing.. very well done. I also really like Asher. The last two episodes did well to justify the flash back sequences... they were largely boring me until we started hearing word of the "bonfire tonight" in the current time sequence. The wrap up was good, I'm very curious to see where they go from here.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 7 Review: Crossed

I'm 3/4 through the second compendium and I quit reading because of the story lines, all though not a total copy, are very similar. I called some of the biggest moments of the season and I haven't picked up the comic in months due to the "I told you so" attitude I've acquired.
I'm finally to a spot between the show and comic that I really don't know whats going to happen. My idea is people are going to die on both sides of the hospital vs the group's oncoming show down. Rick's group is going soft it appears showing compassion even though they're showed nothing close to that in return. This could be due to Rick's growing brutality, losing the prison due to the kill or killed mentality brought on by the Governor, and although Terminus was a flash they were still in a very vulnerable situation that cost them Bob and helped split up the group.
If this "lets make a deal" mentality gets people killed, Rick is going to go into super brutalitarian mode even more so than he already is. The pastor is a confusing character and should simply be put down or eaten. There's no clear answers that gives me a bad taste in my mouth. There's been multiple "filler" episodes that leave me guessing but also confused. Hopefully this season finally is kick ass and sets up for a great second half.

there have been no filler episodes. this is simply a show about the zombie apocolypse. most of the shit that would really happen is a lot of talkin to whoever is around you.

I haven't a clue who the Reverse Flash is, but I thought this morning of kind of a twist on Eddie's character they may be doing (based on what Eddie is described as doing next week) is sort of Javert from Les Mis. Like, technically, as much as you rooted for Jean Val Jean, Javert wasn't entirely wrong in his stance either. Sort of the same for Barry and Eddie. Heck, it was almost that way with Quentin Lance and Arrow. But it might be interesting if Eddie doesn't let it go, doesn't come to an understanding about the Flash, and that leads him on a path similar to Two Face in Batman. Like, he was always trying to do right, but its a true good intentions path.

Is Kol wanting to dagger Klaus out of revenge? Wasn't Kol threatening 10 yr old Marcel to turn him? Boy, Marcel is going to hate Kol!

i might have imagined this but when abraham picked up the bottle it looked like there was glass or something poking out from underneath the bandage...like why was the close up of his hand necessary, added with the change in tone in the background music? ive a feeling eugene's a zombie as well. that noise just didnt sound normal.

@ dipdab

They HAVE been focusing on his hand ALOT, I wondered about that too. Is it infected? I'm assuming it's not bit as he would have turned by now. And no great loss if Eugene has turned.

Terrie
@ Mrs. Cleaver

I don't think Eugene has turned.......Maggie ran to him at the end of the episode and she would have killed him right away if that were the case........

@ Terrie

I agree, Terrie. If she pleasantly told him he'd be just fine, blah blah, and, what, just because of the blanket and shade didn't see he'd turned, I'll be disappointed. She's too smart for that. That would be a jump the shark moment for me.

I thought so, as well, about Eugene. Sounded more 'zombie' than human...

I watch with captions on, and while it sounded "gruntish", the captions said "Hello?" when Eugene grunted.

The Flash Round Table: Friendship or the Reverse?

I agree with Carissa Harrison being The Reverse Flash is too obvious he's too smart to go after Joe and warn him after talking to him about it minutes ago I think it's Eddie and he's only pretending to be a perfect nice guy if anything he's too perfect and I'm sure we'll see what he's planning soon though we might not find out until the midseason finale when they actually reveal who it's.

@ Reozen

While I agree Harrison Wells is way too obvious, I'd argue Eddie had no knowledge that Joe reopened Barry's mother's murder case. Why would he suddenly and without a reason appear as Reverse Flash and threaten Iris? True he's too perfect, but the timing is just off to me.

@ Henry A. Otero

Actually, I believe Eddie knew Joe was looking into the case especially with him visiting Barry's father in prison.

I was thinking that the point at which Carrie told Saul "This is not who we are. This is not who you are. Please. Please. Please,
Saul. Get up. Get up. God dammit. Get up, get up. Please, please. No
more dying. I wanna go home" would have been a great point at which to end the show (with perhaps some wrap-up), but, of course, I know there's another whole season coming, so, that wasn't to be. But that ending - Man, oh man! And, byt the way, we have to wait 2 weeks - the suspense!!
