The Walking Dead Season 7 finale - Finally, we're going to war.

Just watched the season 7 finale of The Walking Dead and after a string of boring episodes it made good with an incredibly tense episode that has actually got me looking forward to the next season and the war with Negan. Overall the second half of this season has been a slog, with too many filler episodes but the finale didn't put a foot wrong and may rank as the best episode of the entire season.

The twist with the Trash-People was unexpected although the thing with Sasha could be seen a mile off - if there was one thing wrong with this episodes it was the flashbacks, there were far too many of them though the final one while we were waiting for Sasha to be released from the coffin really turned the screws on the tension.

The appearance of the tiger in action (at last) was a punch your fist in the air moment, though I still struggle to take that king dude serious. And what about Eugene? Is he still loyal to Rick? It certainly seemed like he was now loyal to Negan but given that he must gave supplied Sasha with that death pill and his final interaction of the episode with Negan it suggests that he may prove to be a hero after all.

Speaking of Negan - he  has been a disappointment - he comes across as a cartoon villain which is sad given the promising start he had in the show. Still I can wait to see that motherfucker die; hopefully in the next season. But please please don't give us umpteen boring episodes to get to the meat and potatoes.
