Dr. Eugene Porter: [to Gabriel, fuming] The answer is no! I will never, not on your nelly, be on board with your plan. Your invite is declined. I will not end up like Sasha or you. You both made your choices, what I imagine most will calculate as the right thing, rolled your D20s and came up dead, and seemingly soon to be. I cannot do the same. Now judge me if you choose, but I'm seeing 20 for 20, I'm feeling 10 for 10, and I'm receiving 5 by 5 that staying safe means staying alive, and I'm A-okay with doing ...

Lacking Build Up
3 December 2017 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

After last week's very uneventful episode, I had little expectations for 'Time for After'. This whole "All out War" story has slowed down to just a rehash of most of last season's back half episode arcs. And it just feels like it's taking a long time to get to the end result of this 'war', while at the same time it doesn't feel right if the conflict ends next week with Rick taking down Negan, capturing him, or whatever they end up doing. I've liked this season thus far, but it just feels like there's been a slowed tension and a lack of build up to the mid-season finale. And this big moment that AMC is teasing for next week? Yeah it better be good.

Tonight was a big Eugene-Dwight episode, two characters that could not have gone in more different directions these last bunch of episodes. Dwight has developed more depth and reasoning behind his decisions than I ever thought he would, but is also putting himself into position to dying next week. It's almost guaranteed at this point. Eugene on the other-hand is making a case to not be redeemable at all, and the only thing keeping him from going too far is not telling Negan about Dwight's betrayal. Otherwise, I don't see any reason to let Eugene back into the group assuming he makes it out of these next batch of episodes alive.

Rick spent the majority of the episode in his underwear trying to convince Jadis and The Scavengers to join them in the fight against The Saviors. Why? Well, for some reason Rick still believes they can be trusted. Or maybe he is going to double cross them just like they did to him last year? That would be welcomed, although I find it more likely The Scavengers will back out when time is most vital.

Meanwhile, at The Sanctuary Morgan, Daryl, and Tara enacted a plan to send the walkers inside the building to draw The Saviors out. Much like last season, this was yet another inner team conflict as both Rosita and Michonne claimed they couldn't be a part of such an act as it put the workers from the sanctuary at risk of dying. Well, at least Rosita learned her lesson from last year right? I don't know how much consequence will come of this choice by Daryl, Tara, and Morgan, but I doubt this won't be addressed next week. Then again, all I really hope is that we stop getting episode one-offs with the team at odds with each other. Can Rick not spend one episode away from Alexandria without this happening?
