Rick and Michonne, who are on a mission to gather guns and ammo for the Scavengers, arrive at a walker-infested outdoor carnival that they believe hold the supplies they need. They quickly discover a room full of supplies, where they set up camp and discuss how they’ll live their lives after Negan’s gone. Elsewhere, the always optimistic and chipper Rosita comes up empty-handed on a supply run and returns home to blame Father Gabriel. Cool.
The next day, Rick and Michonne separate and take out the walkers one by one. Their plan to block the fence gap with the car is foiled when the brakes fail and their car is suddenly surrounded by walkers. They escape out the sun roof but are surrounded again so they separate again. They thin out more of the herd until Rick spots a deer by the Ferris wheel (he owes one to Michonne after surrendering one to Negan earlier in the season).
Trying to get the deer Rick loses his footing and Michonne runs over to help, when suddenly she THINKS she spots the walkers devouring Rick (they’re actually devouring the deer). She drops her katana in disbelief but thankfully witnesses Rick emerge safely from an enclosure. He tosses her the katana and together they go full super saiyan and take out the remaining walkers. Afterwards, they gather a healthy supply of guns and return to the junkyard.
Jadis inspects Rick and Michonne’s guns but declares they’re STILL not enough for her people. Rick scoffs and takes some back for his people to search for more. Later at Alexandria, Tara tells Rick about Rosita’s mission to take out Negan. Meanwhile, Rosita arrives at The Hilltop to recruit Sasha on her mission. She agrees and Rosita hands her a sniper she lifted from the junkyard. Sasha agrees, so long as she gets to take the shot. They both agree on the plan, and that it’s a one way ticket for them both.
What did YOU think of tonight’s harrowing episode? Tell us in the comments!
I enjoyed this episode way more than I thought I would. Finally some of the good old zombie slashing we’ve been missing got so long. Great Richonne moments. So yeah, there storyline was good and I’m glad because I went into it thinking I’d don’t like it.
Rosita is now officially my least favorite character. Sick of her attitude, her lack of understanding etc. looks like she’ll be the Holly of the TV series. At this point, good riddance. I’m enjoying Gabriel’s development and am starting to like him a bit. Still not down with the Jadis plot line and there speech issues.
Looking forward to getting ass kicking Carol back next week.
And good lord. If I only I could type. Half the shit I wrote sounds like Jadis wrote it. Need a bloody edit function.
I sort of think Sasha has taken Holly’s spot. She did when she got with Abe.
Again, not my favorite episode, but good. It was good to see Rick especially get a brief break and vent about Glenn and the situation.
I was hoping that Rosita was gonna die soon, but now it’s looking like Sasha will… not happy at that prospect. Rosita deserves to die!
I been waiting to get Carol back, but am concerned about her mental state. Hope she’s ready to handle the news cause I don’t want to see her spiral out of control and do something to cause her own death.
Jadis is getting to be really annoying. Don’t understand her lingo, honestly she sounds like the “onlys” (a group of survivor kids) from the original Star Trek series, episode: Miri (If you’re not familiar with it, try watching and you’ll see what I mean). And what’s up with the hair? How is she able to keep that cut & die job in tact w/o a salon? Again, very Star Trek-like. She looks like a Romulan.
Yes! That’s is it exactly! I was trying to figure out who Jadis reminded me of. Glad you reminded me 🙂 She has to be the most irritating person on the show. All of them look and act like the came from Village of the Damned LOL! I was wondering about the hair thing also. And why is one of them all covered up? Reminded me of the Wolves.
We know nothing about The Junkyard from the show. They can be foreigners that have traveled to US and didn’t know the language. Obviously, you can’t really learn it, when 75% of human population is trying eat you. What if they were on a flight and ended up stuck in US, when everything started?
I am sorry, but hating some character that has been in 2 episodes (1 mainly and 1 briefly), because they have not revealed their plot line and all the cards in the same exact episode and because they are quite different with their speech is… I don’t know. Ignorant?
You won’t enjoy TWD properly, if you don’t have enough patience.There are may other shows that are more rapid. I do recommend switching to them.
And as of Rosita, there’s no need to blame her. Annoying, yeah. But you’d have people acting like she does. In fact, she is a good example of any casual fan – wants everything to be done quick, does not appreciate the details and can’t take it slow.
But again, I agree that she is annoying, but I would not blame her.
And if you give her Holly’s death, who will be with Eugene? She fits perfectly to have a romance that is broken from the start with Eugy. Who else could, if not her? Tara? She can bi-sexual, but I don’t see her in that story. That Savior girl seemed nice to Eugene. As nice as it could be possible. Rosita in the comics was into big pretty dudes, too, but turned to Eugene. That Savior was into Spencer, so maybe she could. Especially considering that Eugene is not planning to run back to Alexandria.
The other ones don’t have any history with Eugene.
trying to eat you*
But didn’t you say anyone can learn anything in a few months? Like Eugene becoming a Dr? If so, why haven’t the Scavengers learned the language? I would think it takes less time to learn English then to learn how to be a Doctor.
On your second point, yes Rosita is annoying but I do agree that there has to be different kinds of people who react differently to trauma in the group. Her reaction is rage and the immediate need for revenge.
I really thought for a moment that Rick was actually going to die… oh the sweet panic. Love the show, but the cut scenes are getting old. Why do they always have to change the scene when a character is about to reveal something. Like back when Tara came back from her run and met Eugene at the gate, they completely skipped over her finding out who had died. I would actually like to see these conversations unfold.
Then in this episode, Tara was about to tell Rick about Oceanside, but then they cut away. I guarantee whenever we see them again, the conversation will have already happened and everyone will know everything.
Also, it is about damn time Carol. Getting back into the game. Finally she will know what actually happened with the Saviors.
And she will join the war and persuade Ezekiel into telling his people about the saviors and telling them they have to join the war. Too bad we won’t see it this season and we ll have to wait again
You’re right about Carol but I don’t think she’s gonna find out from Daryl or anyone who was actually there. In the clip Carol was heading for the kingdom so I think Morgan is going to tell her, but he doesn’t know the gory details and how truly traumatic it truly was. She won’t feel the full impact which is a shame since we’ve waited so long to see her reaction to the horrible news.
They skip the some moments and that is good. It really is. Watch some other shows or jsut movies, it has been a huge cliche to just show everything that is not necessarily has to be shown. Game Of Thrones has started this thing, I believe. When they have skipped a whole battle of Stannis, because everyone knew that he’d fail. Why show it, then?
And same thing with Tara talking about who died. What, would she jump on the fence and laughed out loud? No, it’s obviously how their conversation would turn out. Why waste the screen time on it, then?
Again, there’s no need to show how she says it to Rick. That would be a lame scene to shoot. She had explained herself to Judith and pretty much that was it – that was your scene that you want.
Look, you need to understand that it’s not being cut without a reason.
What a sweet episode! I call it “Honeymoon for Richonne and a bond of Hollie-twins”.
I’ve always wanted to get more of Rick and Mochonne to establish their relationship a little bit more and this episode did it just perfectly. Such a joy to see them both happy. I’d totally be up to get another episode or two just about them, huh.
Also Rosita and Sasha are going for a suicide mission. I wonder if it’s both of them to take Hollie’s death or just one. I mean, Rosita has quite a story later on, but I find it to be possible that they both may die. Tara could fill her role possibly. I mean, she’s lesbian, sure, but she could be bi-sexual. And Eugene is not the most manly guy on Earth…
Oh, and Rick and Michonne had lots of cool walker kills in this episode, which is great. Love me some walker slaughtering from from yelling Rick and elegant Michonne. Very nice.
Soundtrack was very good in this episode. Sets the mood perfectly, suits the scenes.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan said that he is in 3 episode in this half of season, so since E11 was all about him and Eugene, we still have 2 appearances in this season (a finale, of course + 1 ep), which is great. Another pick up from Alexandria? Another The Sanctuary-based episode? I’m totally up for it.
Rick is becoming a little bit reckless, tough. It will serve him bad later on this season, I presume. But I understand why he’s like that – he’s getting back his mojo after a psychological trauma and considering how lucky they have been recently, can’t blame him for having a little bit of reckless attitude. He’ll get better as time goes on. That’s how you actually become a leader or a better person – though mistakes.
Next Sunday is all about The Kingdom and, I think, Daryl and Sherry meeting up on their way to Hilltop or to Alexandria. Possibly, Sherry is going to try to make Daryl show her a way to Alexandria. Is that whole Sherry-thing a remix? Is she keeping her comic character? Is Dwight the one to be a double-agent in Saviors forces… I don’t know, but I am already happy about it playing out this way.
Remembered one neat moment: “Twice more guns” she says. Wow. So, The Junkyard is the biggest community after The Saviors. It really is dangerous to arm them up, but what choice does Rick have? We are coming to a much bigger and wider war than it was in the comics, which is exciting.
I’ve said previously, but this season is already my favorite in the series so far. First half was amazing with all of its development, Neganism, just a whole other tune for the show and now second part kicks in with this whole “rise up” thing. So good!
Only 3 episodes left until the finale!
Sorry for the mistakes. I wish this site had “Edit” function, sigh.
I’m a lot more concerned with WHO the hollie replacement is going to bite.
Another obligatory soap opera episode with a lot of splatter thrown in. Rosita’s fatty walker was fun. Sad, pathetic Rosita is getting annoying, but her only finding a toy gun was hysterical. My intuition tells me she’s going to be around a while. Though, I don’t think her assassination plan with Sasha is a good idea. Reference her slaughter for a toy gun track record. Rick pulling the zombies foot off was nasty. That zombie all around was great fx. I must admit, I also had a moment where I asked myself where will this show go now that Rick is being eaten by zombies? Of course you ask yourself this when Michone runs around the corner and sees Rick on the ground, and the next shot is walkers eating something! I asked myself a few times during this episode who the fuck was directing and writing it? Clusterfuck of edits at times. Anyway, Rosita needs to leave Father Gabriel alone. I do not fully trust this new group, the scavengers? The trajectory with them is they kidnap one of yours, test you gladiator style, then tell you to get them guns while they do nothing. I don’t think so. Something is fishy. Pond of walkers fishy. Also, snappy Rosita is frustrating. Though, her not trusting the steampunk hippy commune gets some respect. All in all, a great episode to make us look forward to the next episode. So…looking forward to next week.
Dude, this is not a new movie with Vin DIesel. This is drama and drama is in rude’s people language “a soap opera”. Go watch some action-stuff like Resident Evil. What, don’t want to? Characters are stiff? Well, maybe it”s because they don’t get any developments, duh.
Seriously, if all that has impressed you about this episode was how “nasty” one walker’s foot was. Then why the hell do you even watch it? Many other movies and shows, where you will get just nastyness and gore. Go watch that.
Jadis is the jar jar of twd at this point. Doesn’t fit in at all with the absurd language and the pseudo telepathic hive mind followers who don’t speak. Kill her off quickly please.
Also what is going on with the special effects lately? They were always top notch, but that deer looked as cut and paste fake as the up up up junkyard green screen.
I don’t agree about Jarvis. And encourage you to read some of my other comments in this post.
But I will totally agree with you about special effects. And not exactly, special effect, but CGI. Shiva is pretty beleivable, I don’t have any problems with her. But that zombie in E11 looked soooo bad! I’ve seen cheaper movies with better CGI. And that green screen of junkyard that you’ve mentioned, yeah. I mean, it’s junkyard, is it so hard for them to shoot some junk? The arena was cool, but they could easily make a shot of some … well, junkyard. Hell, they have built parts of the prison for the third season and the whole Alexandria for 5th, but they can’t throw in some junk and make a quick shot?
And that deer at the scene when Rick was almost eaten… man, that was bad. He was so shiny and jsut not real at all.
It’s because of AMC, probably. The show is not about one group anymore, it has lots and lots of characters, places and more “expensive” stuff to shoot. But AMC can’t understand that they need to step up the budget for the show.
Yea, the deer was awful.Rosita is awful, but I think Sasha will be the one who gets killed, the actress is gonna be in Star Trek, if I remember, so a similar story like with lost Heath.
I’m bored of Carol, hopefully she will change things and it will finally escalate when Kingdom meets the Saviors again. That long-haired asshole and his boss deserve to die.
I used to like this show. Now I tolerate it, hoping it will someday be good again. Rosita is annoying anytime she shows up, anymore. Carol used to be my favorite character, now I’m hoping a walker just eats her whiny butt and ends the misery. The junkyard people are just a bad idea for a storyline and should be abandoned. The show is just getting too unbelievable (once you accept the original premise of the show, that is). You’ve got a group that right out of the gate tries to kill Rick, and you go find a bunch of guns and just hand them over to them, trusting they will help you? What is up with their language problem? it’s only been a few years since the zombies took over. They really found the need to invent a whole new way of speaking english? Has it ever been revealed where they keep getting all the gasoline they use to drive around? If I leave gas in my lawn mower over the winter and try to use it in the spring, it may have fouled the carb/engine yet they keep using gas much older than that if we are to believe they keep just siphoning it out of other vehicles. gas has a ‘shelf life’! The whole time they drove around that motor home, I was thinking “that thing gets about 7mpg and with a scarce commodity like gas, that is the last vehicle you want to drive around”. The show is getting too many flaws creeping in, and I hope they turn this thing around soon.
They definitely need to explain how they achieved the language and hive mind so quickly. I agree, way too short a time for all that.
You don’t need to like ,you need to think. Let’s do it together.
Let me break down Rosita for you. First, Abraham decides that he needs to make pancakes and dumps her for some other girl. Second, she still likes him and then they kill a lot of people in their sleeps. Doing something like that is not a very pleasant life-experience, you know? Third, they get a deep psychological trauma at the line-up, when some guy that walks around carrying a named bat, kills her still love interest and makes her to watch on the weapon that was used to smash his red skull into the ground. Fourth, she can’t avenge him and eats herself up. That’s called a “survirvor syndrome” or something like that. And finally, fifth, she gets another trauma, she sees her potential love interest being GUTTED after playing pool, she tries to kill the man and becuse of her emotions, her friend gets taken to some torturing (as she thinks) and one woman dies. Again, because of her.
That does not sound like a very nice experience for her, does it? All my 5 notes. Nope. It does not.
Everyone reacts differently. Her reaction has turned to being an annoying girl that can’t wait and think that everyone makes excuses to avoid fighting and avenging.
Next thing. About giving up guns. Saviors never tried to kill Rick. They introduce themselves by spreading fear and by killing 1 person. Saviors would never try to kill Rick and if you were paying attention, Negan did expain that clearly. More than clearly. Also Rick and the team have killed how much of Saviors already? 50? Well, 50 against 2…
And again, you have not been paying attention. Rick was completely broken and seeing how much of the Saviors there are, how much power they have and what they can do, beeing in that line-up… what, you want him a fucking Rambo after that? This is not the show you”re watching, man. Some stuff like gas or CGI is not perfect, but they understand human reactions and characters perfectly. Which is what this show is about. Sigh…
When it comes to decisions, everything pretty much goes to Rick. He and everyone that have been on the line-up were totally in no condition to fight the Saviors. Hell, they don’t even know where their outpost is (until episode 9, I believe). There were 50 people in Alexandria, some of them are old and some are kids. Do you expect them to be able to kick a huge group by themselves? Hell, even Kingdom was not introduced to Rick when they have handed the guns.
Jesus should have been more quick with showing off the world. Maybe then something would play out differently. Maybe. But he was not.
Giving away the guns was an only option, in fact no on had a choice. Negan would just make another line-up and kill as much as it would take for Rick to give those guns by himself. Again, less than 50 people against how much? 200? 300? We don’t even know exactly how much by now.
Last thing. Gas. They don’t syphon gas anymore. In fact, I don’t remember them doing it after S3. How do you know that it was not kept properly? They don’t even use cars that much now. Kingdom is all about horses. Hilltop, too. Alexandria had lots of good supplies, so probably they have had some nicely kept gas. Saviors, too. Even if not, that doesn’t matter, because they slowly move towards using horses more and more. In the comic there is no cars after All Out War. The show will stop using them, too. After 8th season.
Junkyard is a bad idea, because they don’t speak your precious language so good? I mean, they have been in the story for 1 episode and 1 briefly and you’ve managed to crack them and your writer’s skill sure did say that they are bad for the show, right? Weird.
Again, shortly speaking, Junkyard is not explained yet. They can be foreigners that have travelled to US, when everything started. They look kind of European to me. What if they just didn’t know the language before travelling to US and hoping that it’s better there? What if they were on a flight and stuck in US, when eveything started? There can be hundreds of explanations, but you decide to skip waiting and ask for the sweets at night. Great.
I thought the same thing about the gas. And the cigarettes are probably pretty bad by now too. But hey, Jadis proves that the hair color solution has a pretty long shelf life. She must have stocked up on it right after the zombie apocalypse.
And speaking of groups… what the hell was the point of the all Tara episode and the all female colony by the sea??? It’s like Gimple and Nicotero have been watching Fury Road a bit too much.
Alexandria, Hill top, the Kingdom. It was good enough to win in the comics, and it should have been here as well. In the comics a tiger was pushing it. But I loved Ezekiel and dealt with it. These other odd groups are just too much and Unneeded.
The only point I can see to that group is they have a butt load of guns our group desperately needs. And I’m thinking it’s also to bring in a love interest for Tara. That girl who saved her will probably that group and develop a relationship with her.
correction – leave that group
I wondered about that group myself. Since they have had interaction with the Saviors they know how powerful they are. I am thinking after being extremely upset about Tara telling Rick and company about them, they will join forces with the rest of our groups. Or maybe the Saviors will find them and kill them, or when our group goes to meet them they will be all dead already. Hope not.
It is getting rather Game of Thrones like with so many characters to keep track of.
In line with gas expiring…why are they always driving the shittiest cars in the entire world? Gas issues aside, they could literally pick and choose any fantasy car in the world to drive. Instead they drive a 1967 rusted out RV. They drive a 30 year old beater van with holes in the body. They drive 1975 oldmobile tanks made out of 1 inch steel that would get 2 mpg. They could all have 3 Bentleys, 5 Lamborghini’s and 2 Rolls Royce a piece.
Well, Rick did drive it. Saviors do choose their vehicles wisely.
And if you think that they have enough time and they are willing to risk their lives for fansy automobiles, then… I really can’t say anything, lol. I mean, you clearly understand nothing about their states of minds, if you even think about getting “fantasy cars”. They take cars that are available and the universe that show is in, is not exactly our time, when more and more people switch to new cars . Every show has its universe and its specific rules.
Glen chose the fancy Dodge Challenger in season one, and it got Amy killed 🙁
Well, I guess it’s because all the nice cars are in the cities, over run by walkers. We haven’t seen a really nice car since Glenn drove that red sports car out of Atlanta in season 1.
Nope. Rick did have a nice car. Guys, pay attention.
Episode 10 of Season 6.
Wow dude, can you perhaps not be rude to at least one person who comments? It is like you are the only authority on TWD. Guess what? You are not. You speculate like the rest of us do. So unless you are Kirkman, you don’t know crap.
Pretty soon you will be the only one commenting on this site, then you can slam yourself instead of everyone else.
PS…. It is just a TV show
How careless of us not to recall the one other nice car they’ve used over 7 seasons. Scandalous.
I am more than ready for Rosita to die!! I thought Sasha had more sense than Rosita..but that does not appear to be the case. This will end horribly and seeing how Negan is, other members of Rick’s group will pay the price. What a shame!!
Martin-Green will be starring opposite Jason Isaacs in the new Star Trek TV series this fall. Sasha’s days are numbered.
I can;t help but think this story line is being rushed because of that. I would hope not.
In the last part of the recap you said Tara told Rick she has something to tell him and she’s going to tell Rick about Rositas plan. I’m sorry that’s wrong and makes no sense. We saw Tara struggling this episode over weather to tell the group about Oceanside and their guns. We can assume that’s what she going to tell Rick. The whole part with her and Judith would make no sense if it was about Rosita. Specially after she told Rick she thinks Rosita went to get more guns. Which tells us she has no idea about Rositas plan
I’ve started thinking Rosita might be a suicide potential several episodes ago, now that sliusarek reexamined her repeated slaps I’m even more convinced. I can see her and Sasha’s plan failing shamefully, Sasha gets killed or better yet tortured and killed in front of Rosita and Rosita hangs herself from a tree or rung on a post. Initially I believed that Negan would take Rosita as a “wife” or slave and the series would get into his weirdness with women more in depth, but now I’m sure that’s not going to happen. Not with Eugene in the Saviors, anyway. Is it Sunday, yet? I don’t think we are going to have to worry about all these out of comics groups popping up. I do not trust the Scavangers, and after reading some of the comments above wouldn’t doubt the seaside gals wind up slaughtered. Negan has been bad, but he needs to up the game to really tip this into all out war. Killing an entire group for our heros to see would be a way. Maybe that is what the next episode is about; the Survivors go to the seaside ladies and the massacre is in progress, Carol went along because she needs some female bonding and she goes all kill’m all at the sight of Negan’s guys exicuting these women. She then tells Ezechial he’s gonna fight and he fights.
I never considered that, wow that would be brutal, and you are right, it would launch all out war and all out Carol! Probably even Morgan would go ballistic if that happened.
Here is another scenario, I am just pondering here.. no evidence, just my imagination 🙂
Supposed Sasha and Rosita meet up with the Oceansiders and either convince them to fight, they have the weapons and the ability. Or maybe Rosita and Sasha just stay with the Oceansiders for the rest of the season.
Not likely, I think Benjamin’s death is going to be the catalyst that pulls the kingdom and Morgan into the fight. And for Carol it will be that plus finding out what happened to Glenn, Abe & the others that will get her back into bad ass mode.
As for Sahsa and Rosita, they won’t run into the Oceansiders. Tara will take Rick there for the guns. Weather they join the fight is questionable, but I think not. But unfortunately, Sasha is doomed, not sure about Rosita…she. seems to be more of a carrier. Her actions keep getting others killed/kidnapped.
Although, I could be completely wrong. Some of what walkerplay4 said will happen (like the failed attempt on Negan) because we know Negan’s not going anywhere just yet.
Interesting, but most of that seems unlikely. But on this show you never know.
True. That is why it is great.
