Episode Title: Hearts Still Beating
Original Airdate: 12-11-16
Since we checked in with everyone this week, and it was a 90-minute mid-season finale, there is a lot to cover. First, over at the Kingdom (or just outside at Carol’s new place), Richard pleads with Carol and Morgan to convince Ezekiel to attack the Saviors before their deal turns sour and the Kingdom falls. Both refuse to help and Carol demands to be left alone, which would totally be me in the zombie apocalypse. Actually, that’s pretty much me now.

Episode Title: Sing Me a Song
Original Airdate: 12-4-16
Was anyone else ready for some Negan and Carl bonding? I surely wasn’t. In this week’s 90-minute episode, Rick and Aaron may have found a compound full of supplies, but must cross a lake full of bobbing Walkers to get to it. Eugene made Rosita a bullet, after she belittled the hell out of him. Spencer was a spoiled d-bag, per the norm, who also found a small stockpile of goods. And Michonne set up a Walker road block to sabotage one of the Saviors, so she could hitch a ride back to the Sanctuary.

Episode Title: Swear
Original Airdate: 11-27-16
Time to catch up with Tara and Heath. After Rick & Co. thought they took out all the Saviors at the satellite compound, the dynamic duo set out on a two-week scavenging mission, so they know nothing of the tragedies we’ve witnessed over the last nine episodes. In this episode we find them at the end of their tour with very little to show for it. Tara convinces Heath to push a little further out than planned, but they come to a blocked bridge covered in sand. And of course the sand pile is full of Walkers. The two are not prepared for the fight and become separated when Tara goes over the bridge into the water below.

Episode Title: Go Getters
Original Airdate: 11-20-16
We’re back at Hilltop this week, catching up with Sasha, Maggie and Jesus. Maggie is still pregnant, but with a slight complication (*insert medical jargon*), for which the Hilltop doctor would like to keep her close in case of further issues. Gregory, the Hilltop’s “leader,” is completely against Maggie and Sasha staying, since they failed to take down Negan like they promised and Gregory doesn’t want the Saviors thinking he had anything to do with the attack. After getting Gregory to agree to let the ladies stay the night, Jesus promises them he will change Gregory’s mind.

Episode Title: Service
Original Airdate: 11-13-16
Not a lot of plot to cover with this week’s episode. Negan makes his first stop at Alexandria to take whatever he desires…and is the most obnoxious house guest ever. Aside from mattresses and other random comforts, Negan demands all the fire power Alexandria has to offer. When two guns come up missing from the armory, Negan threatens to kill Olivia, as inventory is her responsibility. Rick finds the guns hidden in Spencer’s air vents, along with food and liquor, because Spencer is a spoiled brat.

Episode Title: The Cell
Original Airdate: 11-6-16
This week we visited The Sanctuary, main hub of Negan and the Saviors, as we watched Dwight torture Daryl with possibly the most annoying song ever recorded and dog food sandwiches. Daryl is left in a tiny cell under the aforementioned conditions, as Dwight tries to break him, because Negan really wants Daryl to join his ranks. By the end Daryl, still refuses.

Episode Title: The Well
Original Airdate: 10-30-16
This week we caught up with Carol and Morgan. Carol ditched Alexandria at the end of last season, came across some Saviors, killing all but one, and was followed by a concerned Morgan, with whom she has never seen eye-to-eye. Eventually, Carol was shot by the Savior she failed to kill, and was saved by Morgan when he broke his own “no killing” oath. They were then rescued by knights in armor…literally. The knights took them to a a settlement known as (what else) The Kingdom, led by the eccentric King Ezekiel, who happens to sport a pet tiger, Shiva.

Episode Title: The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be
Original Airdate: 10-23-16
Last night was rough, y’all. I went into the Season 7 premiere with a ho-hum attitude, and an hour later felt as though someone had ripped my soul in half. A bit dramatic? Sure, but this episode did not let up, and by the end I was physically and emotionally drained.

A bit of a nutty season, no? As much as I still love Rick, maybe he shouldn’t plan things anymore. First his plan to lead the quarry herd away from Alexandria got a lot of people killed in the first half of the season, which led to the walls collapsing and more deaths, like his girlfriend. Then he planned to kill all the Saviors with zero information about them or their compound, and ends up on his knees with his son, new girlfriend and 8 besties all at the mercy of Negan. I think maybe we should put someone new in charge for awhile.

Episode Title: Last Day on Earth
Original Airdate 4-3-16
I’m just going to get this out in the open right out of the gate: that wasn’t a cliffhanger, it was a dick move.
So the “90-minute” finale (with enough commercial breaks to rival the Super Bowl), was split into two plot lines. One was Morgan, on horseback, looking for Carol. He finds her in pretty bad shape and tries to convince her she needs to come back to Alexandria for stitches and healing. She refuses, gives him the slip and ends up on the wrong side of a gun held by the one Savior she failed to kill on the road in the last episode. He shoots her in the arm and leg, and walks away, but she taunts him into coming back to finish the job. As he’s about to pull the trigger, Morgan shows up and gives the man a chance to back away, but eventually nixes his “all life is precious” mantra and kills the Savior to save Carol.
