22129926THIS MEANS WAR!!!!

Yeah all I got running through my mind right now is Nickelback’s This Means War as I write this.

This is all about Negan and Rick, and Rick trying to bring the three communities of Alexandraia, Hilltop and The Kingdom together to take Negan out.

Aaaaannd that’s pretty much it.  Plotting, planning, secret rendezvous, actually got a wee bit boring at times cuz it was all talk talk talk talk talk.

There was a false start when Negan makes an unplanned visit to Alexandria and Rick sees an opportunity to take him out with minimal casualties, only to get his ass handed to him and eventually the partial destruction of Alexandria.  That leads to some lost of trust with the leaders of the other communities, but as Maggie says “I believe in Rick Grimes”.  And eventually so does everyone else.

Still a wee bit of time to go until the end of the year, so we’re going to move on with book 11 next.

24567929After Alexandria is destroyed by Negan, the remaining communities unite for one last stand against the Saviors. The aftermath to their war leads to the biggest status quo change in the history of this acclaimed series.
