The Walking Dead: Season 7 Episode 2 - The Well

Hello friends and welcome back!  Season 7 of The Walking Dead took us by storm last week and decided to slow things down a bit this week.  Some may complain, some my cry out in praise.  As the show has done in recent seasons, we focused on one specific storyline for the entire 40+ minutes.  I'm sure they know that Carol and Morgan can carry an episode on their own.  Hopefully, we won't be getting a Tara/Heath romp through the forest solo episode!  We certainly learned a few things in this episode, met some new characters and saw a bit of how the larger world ties together.  Let's dive in and discuss!

The Walking Dead: Season 7 Episode 1 - The Day Will Come When You Won't...

Hello everyone and welcome back to The Walking Dead season 7!  It's been a long off-season of guessing.  We knew we were in for a stressful hour of television, but we still anxiously anticipated it for months.  And WOW what a crazy episode.  The show runners defended their decision to end last season where they did suggesting that this season would kick off a new ERA of The Walking Dead.  Now that we've seen it I think I can understand where they were coming from.  We worried if we'd be able to mentally get back in the intensity of the moment and be invested in who Negan took out.  I think they successfully had me nauseous the entire hour.  So, kudos to them!  And big kudos to Jeffrey Dean Morgan.  The man is a likable actor in pretty much every role he plays.  You definitely want to hate him as Negan, but there's something about him that is just irrefutably charming.  He's literally killing it as Negan.  It's going to be an interesting ride this season and beyond!

I don't really know if there's much to recap after that grueling hour but I'll certainly jot down a few notes before we head into the comments.  Let's dive in!
