    Regarding Fr Gabriel, I wonder if (sort of Comic Spoilers below)

    Dr Carson is going to check Gabriel for bites and only find a cut that became infected by the walker guts. This will lead the Saviors to discover how using weapons coated in zombie goop yields the same death sentence as a zombie bite, thus giving Gabriel’s death purpose…for the Saviors.

    Hi guys! As always…fun to listen. First the only reason the “shitting pants” line was on the show is because it is a big one in the comics.

    I feel like the writers of the show are trying to slowly prepare us for Negan being spared at the end of the war. Yeah, I agree with you. I have never found Negan menacing on the show. I always want to laugh at him. He is a ridiculous joke, and I wanted him to die at the end of the war, but I feel like they are going to let him live.

    Well, the weapons blowing up was NOT a waste of time…now a lot less people will die–Rick’s group lost them, but the Saviors cannot use them either. I think it is far better that they are destroyed. No one can use them.

    I think this is the best season in two years, and FINALLY the infantile writers are beginning to come up with some good story lines.

    Thanks for all that you do…we enjoy it!

      Hi Denis,

      The song in the middle of the podcast is “Double Darkness” by Big Scary. Sorry, I forgot to mention it in the post. If you’re a Spotify user you can also find all the music we’ve ever played on this playlist:
