    Lots of stuff has been leaked, please don't post it here.

    Who do you want to live/die, and what unforeseen whopper/shocker do you predict?

    I'm just hoping for a good season of writing. The last few really blew butt.
    I'm anxious to see where Carol and darryl go from here.

    I think this season of Fear The Walking Dead has been better than most seasons of the Walking Dead. They must have stolen the good writers.

    I agree. Fear the Walking Dead just keeps getting better every season. The most recent season was great.

    Same here. I need to catch up; last episode I saw was two seasons back when they killed Glenn. I may be in the minority, but I think season 1-3 were the best. Season 2 being my favorite. TWD works best when zombies are just a backdrop for telling stories about people interacting with people.

    I live right in the middle of where they film it and have seen many of the locations. Pretty neat to see a fiction about TEOWAWKI that looks like your own backyard!

    I have often said that the zombies don't matter. They're just props and you could tell the same post-apocalyptic survival story without them. I have seen it done with everything from airburst-nuke EMP attacks to asteroid strikes to nuclear war to the flu.

    In a traditional monster movie, the monster(s) is the threat and it's about people fighting the monster. A zombie apocalypse story is about people surviving without civilization and the zombies are just the cause of the end of civilization, interchangeable with any other. Only those movies that just cover the start of a zombie problem, like Night of the Living Dead, are traditional monster movies.

    I'm hoping the opening credits contain an apology for how terrible the last few seasons have been.

    The adverts have already been proclaiming that these will include Rick Grimes' final episodes, and have already shown scenes with Darryl's new motorcycle. I wonder if they will dub in the Harley sound effects, like they did for his Honda and Merle's Triumph?

    All I know is that it has to be better than Season 8. Otherwise, just kill everyone.

    Morgan will bring his Fear the Walking Dead friends to Alexandria.
    I've been predicting Gabriel's death since his first season, it's overdue.

    Maggie will finally show a belly bulge and have her baby, who will be half black.
    Oops, I meant half Chinese. Whatever.

    But Judith kills it.

    Season 9 is off to a good start.
    They finally crossed the 14th street bridge into Washington DC.
    Silly to live in Alexandria without doing that.

    New motorcycle needs a backstory.
    Lots of horses instead of cars makes sense.
    Nice to see the Oceanside girls made it.

    Nobody rides bicycles?

    FAKE! If there was a glass floor and ceiling in the Smithsonian, I'd remember sitting downstairs watching pretty girls walk above my head wearing miniskirts.:suntan:

    Finally saw a walker, on the streets of DC, wearing a necktie.
    And they held a proper necktie party too.
