Did You Know?


The bullet casings in Eugene's outpost were collected from an actual shooting range. The props team filled them with pepper instead of gunpowder. See more »


This season takes place about three years after the initial outbreak, at this point most medications, especially antibiotics and opioid painkillers like morphine, that are not stored properly (in a cool, dark, dry room) would have lost most of their potency and would be useless. The pills on the floor of that room Gabriel finds were exposed to sunlight and fluctuating temperatures and humidity over a period of years, which will cause most medications to decay rapidly. If properly stored most medications can actually last for years beyond the expiration date, FDA guidelines for stockpiled medications stored properly says most medications are safe to use 6 years past their expiration date. So at this point in time the only medications that would still have any clinical effect would be ones that were stored in an air tight, pitch black, temperature controlled room. See more »


Negan: I'm disappointed, Eugene. This crap was supposed to be behind us. Two flushes and out the pipe. Top it all off, my only doctor and that creepy-ass priest somehow managed to jump ship without anybody knowing about it. You have any idea how something like that could happen, Eugene?
Dr. Eugene Porter: No, I would not venture to guess.
Negan: Carson was never one of us. He was a weasel, just like his weasel brother. That's my best stab at it.
Dr. Eugene Porter: Drawing together associations and behaviors, that's a solid stab.

Another lukewarm episode
12 March 2018 | by xxxNomadicxxxSee all my reviews

Another lukewarm episode, nothing great but not bad. Easily forgettable, no high points, pointless parts where they still dragging their feet to make it to the season finale. Nobody remembers a lukewarm day, that's what this episode is. An easily forgettable episode.
