Spoiler:
Ep opens with a past motivational speech from Zeke, before coming back to the present where we basically find all of his people shot by snipers. Ezekiel is still alive, though wounded in the leg, after his subjects protected him from the gun fire.

They all turn and shamble after Zeke, before he is captured by a Saviour.

Turns out the heavy guns Rick was after were moved to this outpost. Carol, who had left to sweep the compound earlier, stalks the Saviours in charge of the guns. She kills several, but gets overwhelmed by numbers and trapped. She out-thinks them and opens a gate that allows zombies to sneak up and chomp on them.

Meanwhile, the geek Saviour and Zeke get trapped by walkers. The geek Saviour says he'd rather take Zeke to Negan but his head on a spike will do (as he is slowing his escape). As he is about to kill Zeke he is cleaved in two, by Jerry!!!! Zeke and Jerry are then hemmed in by a wall of walkers.

Carol has dealt with all but 2 Saviours but sees Zeke and Jerry in danger, so has a dilemma.

A flashback explains that Zeke was a meek zookeeper who saved Shiva the Tiger after the apocalypse unfolded. Shiva then became clearly devoted to Zeke.

Carol decides to concentrate on Zeke and Jerry, which allows the 2 surviving Saviours to escape with the "heavy guns". But Carol's not worried as she sees a growling motorbike race by.

Daryl and Rick chase after the heavy guns. Other than a silly bit where one Saviour is firing a machine gun at Rick's trailing Jeep yet can't get a single hit, it's a good scene. Daryl takes out the gunner and Rick jumps into the gun transporter and stabs the driver. They get the guns.

Carol, Zeke and Jerry have made their way to the woods but get cornered by a large hoard. Things look grim until Shiva attacks the hoard. She is swamped and killed by the herd. RIP Shiva. Carol, Zeke and Jerry escape. Zeke is sad.

A question - who writes this stuff and why do they consistently confuse horde with hoard?

I write this stuff, so it's obviously me confusing the hawds. Cool

It is my review of the episode. I find it useful to refer back to as a reminder of what happened "Previously on the Walking Dead". It's quicker than FFing through the previous ep.

Ah. I thought it might have been copy-pasted from a fanboy website or something.

It's a f*cking tiger. How in blazes would it get overpowered by a handful of weak, decaying walkers who have been bathing in toxic waste for months?

The same number of fit, healthy, unarmed humans wouldn't have stood a chance against it.

Seems to have been killed off to save on the (bad) CGI budget.

Anyway, onto next week and part 5 of sweaty people hiding and peering around corners in between gun battles with unlimited ammo.

S08E05. Bit of a gab-fest.

Spoiler:
We get a long opening teaser that takes us back to before the good guys sieged the Saviours' compound. All a bit meaningless & pointless, with Gregory simpering before Negan. Then we jump forward to the zombie-surrounded shed, with the Rev claiming he's there to hear Negan's confession.

Rick & Daryl learn the Kingdom was wiped out.

Negan's head group suspect an insider has lead to the siege. Dwight shuts down the discussion, but it's clear everyone suspects Eugene. Later Eugene thanks Dwight.

In the shed, Gabe learns more about Negan's background but tricks him & swipes back his fully loaded gun.

Rick and Daryl get into a fight when Daryl wants to use captured dynamite to blow the Saviours' compound to kingdom-come. Rick doesn't want to jeopardise the innocent workers. Rick throws the dynamite back on the rolled truck which explodes (leaking fuel). All guns and ammo are lost (really??). They go their separate ways.

Gabe confesses his cowardice at the church (locked his congregation out) and Negan confesses that he couldn't put his cancered 1st wife down. They then throw the escape-from-Alexandria Hail Mary of covering themselves with zombie guts. They successfully escape, with pistol-toting Gabe saving Negan from swarming walkers.

The Saviour workers revolt & Simon tries to strongarm them but fails. Regina shoots one worker & all hell is about to break loose when zombie-guts Negan saunters in and restores order.

Rick sees a helicopter & then is spied by a Garbage people lookout.

Negan tells Eugene he wants him to fix the zombie siege but if he doesn't he will mercifully kill him to save him from the horror of the Saviours' compound being overrun by walkers.

Eugene visits the incarcerated Gabe, who has become sick. Eugene wants the doctor to see him but Gabe wants the doctor to be returned to Hilltop for Maggie.

The best part of the ep was a bit of Negan character development and plenty of juicy dialogue from the baddie.
