For the first time, I found myself wishing both Rick and Darryl would die. I counted. They made 14 boneheaded decisions this episode. All of which
were no-brainers. I kept saying to myself, surely they can't be THAT stupid...and yet....boom! Another dumb decision after another.
You have a truck of supplies. Why do you stop, for ANYTHING? Get back to town, come back out tomorrow!
Guy physically bumps into you? (and you and a buddy have a gun!), other guy holds gun on him while you check for stolen property. Hell, we do this NOW
(guy bumps into you, you check for wallet, keys, etc.)...let alone in the zombie apocalypse!
You just let the guy walk off? No! You at least tie him up (something they kind of figure out later) if you don't just shoot him.
You hear shots. One of you guards the truck, (especially from the guy you just let go), and one of you investigates (or even better, you don't care,
and just get back to town with the truck!
You track down the guy. Kill him now! Nope, after he goes Bruce Lee on both, you just tie him up loosely? Then you just SIT in the truck twirling
keys? No...at least DRIVE!
So, he's on top of the truck, you brake hard and he falls off. Good! Now run over him. Nope. Darryl wants to beat him up. What? Fine, so they do that
(again ignoring the truck, and ignoring this walker trap), and somehow put this truck anywhere near a lake? Yet again, Darryl ignores a chance to just
Ok, so they lose the truck, but Jesus is knocked out. Do they cap him? No. Do they just leave? Nope. Let's take him back to the city. Are you effing
kidding me? He nearly took out your top fighters (sans Michonne), and you think it's a good idea to take him back and stick him in a room with a
flimsy glass windowed door? Seriously?
Just painful the level of stupidity they gave these two characters this episode. I'm pretty much on team Jesus now, because at least he can think.
How much do people want to be there is a letter carved on his forehead?
Far too smart for that. My bet is that he's one of Negan's upper echelon, and was sent to do the very thing we see in the last minute of the episode.
Deliver a message to Rick.
