As of December 12, this season has had so many ups and downs, it's been an emotional rollercoaster. Yes, they 'should kill Negan', but as has been shown to anyone who has logic abilities in their brain, it's not that easy. The psychological terrorizing in the last episode of last season continued into the first episode of this season was masterfully written. Negan is fairly brilliant in his use of mental terror. He manipulated Rick and his group into a situation where for the first time in years, they were helpless and unable to stop or even unable to act on a terrible thing happening in front of them. The worst part of it being it was being done by a fellow human, so they can't blame the mindless zombies or nature or chance.
This last episode was well done. I know that it follows a lot of the comic verse, which is cool. I'm waiting for Maggie to take over Hilltop and honestly, seeing Daryl back was truly a balm after all of the brutality. I loved when the Kingdom guy was telling Carol how she probably hasn't had anything to do with any fighting... I mean, she's still pulling off the helpless housewife. It's frustrating as heck to see her turn back into the mousey little woman she started out as though. I want to see her find her inner warrior again. Perhaps the knowledge that Glenn was murdered and Maggie will be at risk will bring her around. They need Carol. From her past exploits, I'd just say point her at the Saviors' camp and let her take care of business. Taking out the cannibals was one of my favorite episodes. Badass Carol.
