Sunday's Return of AMC's THE WALKING DEAD

Sunday's Return of AMC's THE WALKING DEAD

After meeting up with his old buddy Morgan, now a member of Ezekiel's Kingdom, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has to relay the horrific fact that Negan cracked two of his friends' skulls. They chose to disarm the explosives and save them but to make this situation just a touch more interesting, there was a sea of dead heading towards them and the pressure was on to get real creative. Allthough it seems that Rick Grimes will decide to immediately eliminate the villain in the season finale, Negan might end up in Morgan's jail cell after all. Daryl's found himself again, too, projecting that combination of toughness and vulnerability that just isn't possible while wearing Walmart sweatpants. What they find appears to be a whole mess of trouble, depending on how you interpret Rick's goofy smile. "Alexandria already fought them once and won, thought we took out the threat, but we didn't know then what we know now", said Rick. He leaves his Bible behind. His initial attempts at bartering with Hilltop leader Gregory fell on deaf ears, but Rick had a natural faith in his allies as he put faith in Jesus and Maggie to sway popular opinion. Rosita redeems herself in the end. Hey, who needs that weasel's help when they have ... No one, including the audience, is surprised by this turn, but there's an eyebrow lift when Enid's underground recruiting amasses a sizeable group of courageous Hilltoppers that are all-in to fight if trained. Not a total victory, but it's a start. Rosita is able to disable the explosives and they grab the dynamite sticks. A few scenes later, Ezekiel sits at a sleeping child's bedside, reciting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.

Could not Morgan have at least said that Carol has a house nearby?

"Rock in the Road" demonstrated that dual objective under the confident direction of Greg Nicotero - our heroes covered plenty of ground, from Hilltop to the Kingdom to the highway to Alexandria and then out on the road again to try and rescue Father Gabriel from an angry hoarder who was mad at Rick and Aaron for raiding his boat. So far fans who obsessively wait for innovative zombie deaths, "Rock on the Road" is your magnum opus. Now, that's all changed - though the details seem to be a bit in flux. Carol's story still makes absolutely no sense ("uhhh, I live in the woods now because this season I'm a reluctant '80s action star who just wants to be left alone"), and when she inevitably pulls her latest 180 four weeks from now, it will still make no sense. Don't squander your pomegranates on her mopey ass, Zeke. But things started to improve once the group arrived at the Kingdom. If Daryl does turn up here, there's no statute of limitations on this. We don't blame the guy.

Fit-again Faletau set to be a 'finisher' for Wales against England
It has been an ongoing topic of discussion leading into Saturday's Test with Wales openly stating they wanted the roof closed. Wales' plan failed, the kickoff was delayed, and England won on opening night, ultimately costing Wales the championship.

Travel Ban Could Go to Supreme Court
The travel ban would prompt businesses to build operations outside the United States, said the companies. How and when a case might get to the Supreme Court is unclear.

Betsy DeVos' Crucial Senate Confirmation Vote
A number of protestors gathered outside Fisher's Omaha office this weekend, asking the senator to vote against DeVos' nomination. One critical reason why DeVos is up before Sessions is they need his vote as an Alabama senator in order to confirm her.

It's been a long time since we've last seen our group of survivors when The Walking Dead had their December 11 midseason finale. Without Fat Joey, Skinny Joey is just ... Rick plays innocent and claims they didn't even know Daryl was missing until Simon told them. Daryl wasn't given a choice in the matter and is left standing at the gate looking like an abandoned puppy.

Lennie set the rumour mill spinning earlier this year after it was announced that Sky had commissioned a series called Gone written and starring the actor. I got to look in my rear-view mirror to make sure I'm not being followed home. This isn't just a whim that endangers everyone's life, it's a desperate gamble, the sort of risk they'll need to be willing to take if they want to have a chance of beating the Saviors.

If you find yourself getting into that bad habit of judging a book by its cover, or rather a TV show by its title, then perhaps you should take some time to reflect on the wonderfully mastered drama that is offered within "The Walking Dead". The women have guns...lots of them. These aren't enemies in his mind - they're recruits.
