He was a little desperate but things turned out alright. What impressed me is Rick didn't break and Negan had nothing left to play psychologically. He broke Negan. It's quite telling when the governor met Rick it was Rick trying to reason with him. Governor was unable to be talked out of taking the prison. Rick was not going to give into Negan despite his failed attempts at mentally ****ing with his psyche.
Negan ratings are also shit. I said this from the beginning Negan sucks and is a tired and boring villain. Kill the douche off.
Respect to Carl for taking the initiative, he's catching up to Daryl as the show's badass, don't even think he barely flinched when Negan was gonna kill him. Hope they only take All Out War up to the mid-season finale next season though.

Finally got around to watching the season finale. Good episode. Great play by Negan pulling a Tywin and getting Ricks allies to turn against him in secret. That had me shitting bricks. It felt like we were about the get a repeat of the premier on steroids.
I wasn't a fan of the Kingdom and Hilltop showing up right on time though. That wasn't even coordinated. They just happened to decide to both show up fully armed to the teeth at Alexandria at the exact same time? Deus ex machina of the fking DECADE. Not even an exaggeration. Rick should have been screwed. Negan got blocked pretty hard by plot armor there.
Fking loved Sasha too. Her, Michonne, and Carol are the only good female characters at this point. Her taking one for the team was great, and actually pretty damn sad. Sad to see her go.
