No surprises there. Between reading the comics and getting some behind the scenes info that kind of pointed to the spoilers, the death toll was about what I expected. Curious to see where the season goes from here.
This is just my opinion: I found season 7 boring so far. Horribly decompressed pacing. Too repetitive. I just want the Negan story done. I find his character boorish not menacing. Move on to something more interesting. The finale? It was OK.
I love JD Morgan's Negan and it was a good mid-season finale; it was great to see the gang reunited. However, the first half of season seven was very poor in places. All those side-steps away from the main group just slowed the whole thing down after that high intensity opener. But it started on a high and finished on a high... so roll on February, where I imagine the gang will fight back.
