The only character where I'd say their weapon is part of who they are is Michonne and her katana, mainly because there was actually a plot point regarding it in her arc last season. Daryl's crossbow is definitely iconic, so while he'll probably get it back at some point, I definitely wouldn't say it's integral to his character, considering it's never had anything to do with it. Oh and Dwight in the comics is also iconic for his use of the crossbow, so that's why he has it now. Of course we'll see them again, and not just because of a throwaway line by Daryl.

I mean it's a possibility but there's no reason they'd have to work it in. One of the biggest motifs of the franchise is that what has been lost isn't recovered, be it items of value or lives. Also "You will be [sorry]" has plenty of connotations, revenge being just one, i.e. they just gave up their best shot at a safe haven. I mean I don't see why you're adamant that they'd have to work these things in just because a character's staple weapon was lost. You wouldn't say Rick needs to get his revolver back if he lost it and that's a far closer parallel to Daryl's crossbow than Michonne's katana.

I think it's far more likely that if it's Glenn on the radio, they'll go off and rescue him, get back to Alexandria to help out and then either the new group will attack or the couple will end up there begging for safety since they've run away again. Either way Daryl's probably going to get his crossbow back at some point.

That's exactly what I thought, he will be able to hide under the bin and get out of there somehow, you cant have a main character die with out another main character seeing it happen, it will also be interesting to see how Rick gets out of his situation
oh well thats exactly what happened,

Can't help but feel slightly disappointed that Glenn turned out to be alive, kind of disproves that it was Glenn in the radio seen as he spent the episode with that person I always forget the name of, Edith or something.

Also next weeks episode should be amazing judging by how it was set up tonight.

I reckon they can pull it off, they have a gooseberry fool ton of guns and now that Glenn and Enid are back they could draw some away from the outside. Plus Daryl, Sasha and Abraham are on the way back with a fuel tanker and an RPG, doesn't take a genius to see where that's heading. Only twist I could see happening is if they draw the walkers into Alexandria and blow up the fuel tanker in there, but destroying Alexandria would be a bit pointless since it'd make the second half of the series too similar to the aftermath of the prison getting overrun.
Also, totally calling Jessie's kid shooting Rick/Carl as the end of series cliffhanger.

Yeah looks like Ron is going to shoot Carl, or Ron could take out every single walker on his first go with a gun?

I've heard rumours that the MSF doesn't go as far as most people are thinking it does, so I really hope it's not as disappointing an episode as this implies, considering all people are really expecting is the whole Carl getting shot thing.

Yes I agree, I did think that the guy with the W on his head (wolves) would have just shot those people once he got the guns given how nasty he is, it was a shame Deanna is dead

Deanna's death was handled fairly well, but really it was just an underwhelming episode, and it's irritating how all they've done is build up to the promise of cleaning everything up next time. Admittedly I actually quite like Dr Denise so hopefully that development with her being kidnapped by the wolf goes somewhere to redeem things, because compelling as it is to watch two of the better actors and characters on the show fight over their ideologies, this whole Carol and Morgan conflict has been far too one sided to be anything other than frustrating to watch.

Thought the finale was very 'meh' altogether.

Deanna's death was done well and they're bringing Negan into it really soon.

Not so well was the Morgan and Carol storyline reaching its peak.

As part of the season finale so not particularly soon and probably not significantly yet.

That's a bit rubbish if they're going to tease everyone with one of the most anticipated characters from the comic just to leave him out even longer, will be good to see how they handle the two storylines then, of Negan and his group on one side and the wolves on the other both interacting with Rick and his group.

I was pretty disappointed with the first episode back, don't get me wrong it had loads of action but it was just lacking something, not quite sure what but it just felt very underwhelming to me as a whole. Even Carl getting shot wasn't shocking.

Pretty damn intense, sequence with everyone getting eaten and Carl getting shot was genuinely shocking and had the sort of impact it's been lacking for a while, I mean even the Glenn "death" last half wasn't that bad because it was such an obvious fakeout, whereas with this it could easily go either way depending what direction they want Rick's arc to take; even the ending was ambiguous since it could be zombie Carl grabbing Rick's hand. Shame the wolf guy got killed, that looked like it could actually have been going somewhere interesting till Carol happened.

Also Abraham and Daryl being the best as usual, Gabriel took a level in awesome too. The whole wimpy thing was getting a bit annoying, nice to see him being useful for a change.

The bullet hit his eye at an odd angle and didn't actually enter his skull, survivable in most circumstances but that eye is useless now

This weeks episode was great but I'll not spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.
