The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 9 has aired and another character exited the show. Tara, Bekah, and I covered the episode ‘Evolution’ along with ‘Who Are You Now?’ and ‘Stradivarius’ in Issue 13 of The Bitching Dead webcast.

Going over the viewership numbers for The Walking Dead Season 9, it is clear even the six year-long time jump wasn’t able to give this series the audience it has continued to lose. I am looking forward to the viewing numbers the current season is able to attract once it returns next year.

In The Bitching Dead Issue 13, we decided to cover three episodes because we didn’t have much to say about each episode to warrant individual webcasts.

The things were covered:

  • Maggie being written off the show without a proper goodbye.
  • The annoyance we feel about the characters being mysterious about what occurred during the time jump.
  • Carol’s weird-looking wig.
  • Tom Payne exiting the show because the writers decided to kill Jesus for no reason other than (not so effective) shock value. You should all consider reading Payne’s interview about how he felt frustrated the TV series didn’t do anything with Jesus even though he is one of the major players in the comic books.
  • Showrunner Angela Kang’s explanation about why killing Jesus isn’t meant to be another example of the ‘Bury Your Gays‘ trope.
  • Our reasoning behind Aaron and Jesus never hooking up.
  • Jacob dealing with zombies.
  • Not enjoying Michonne’s new attitude.
  • Daryl and his pet dog.
  • The boring relationships they are trying to force feed us.
  • Negan’s escape.
  • The appearance of the Whisperers.
  • Characters making stupid decisions just so the plot could move forward.
  • Henry being turned into Carl 2.0.
