ThreadTWD: THAT’S IT?!

^ That design is pretty much how we all looked staring at the screen last night…the blood-spattered, faded-to-black-too-soon screen.

We wanted Negan and ho’boy, we got him. Negan’s reveal was pretty intense. But probably not as intense as the emotions we’ve all been left to deal with until next fall.

There was one tweet from the night that just summed up this episode and our feelings beautifully:

Let’s start out easy with some selfies. Because you gotta love the zombie selfies…plus they’re happy fun things that make us smile, unlike the ending of this episode.



“Zombie Walnut” by Laurenz Loehr

Then, The Walking Dead gave us the best phrase since “Don’t Dead Open Inside,” “CORAL,” and Rick’s “Stuff n things.”  Say hello to “Bitch Nuts.” Leave it to Abraham to have the best quotes of the show. He had a few other winning one-liners in this episode too, but “Bitch Nuts” pretty much takes the cake by default. In honor of Abraham, cue responses to one of our flash challenges: recipes with “bitch nuts”:



“Zombie Food” by Ben Chen

Our other flash challenge? Abraham-themed again. Of course. And although in hindsight we know the best book title for Abraham is undeniably “Cooking With Bitch Nuts,” here are Chapters in Abraham’s Book of Swears:

“Outlaw” by Alex Solis

Then I don’t know if it was the stress of the imminent doom we faced at the end of this episode or what it was, but at some point in the episode, people got super obsessed with the horse our characters find in the episode:




“Join the Awesome” by Mathiole & Hafael

And the moment of truth…oh man, you guys; dat Negan reveal. Between the whistling and the super creepy, heavy soundtrack that deserves a freakin’ award for how creepy and heavy it was, Negan got one hell of a reveal.




“Braaains!” by Ray Frenden

And thennn the ending…Our ThreadTWD fam had some feelings about that ending…or lack thereof:

“Vegetarian Zombie” by Javier Ramos Eguiluz

Whew…that episode was a lot to swallow… BUT even though this episode ripped out our hearts and ate them while they were still beating for whatever character FREAKIN’ DIES at the end, we have extra winners to celebrate this week! First winner of the night:

“Abraham’s book of swears” winner:
