That’s insane numbers, but I feel like the show is plodding and really drags on… the past episodes seem like that. You only get 5 minutes of interesting footage. Daryl is my favorite character.

I LOVE this show! But I agree that it dragged a bit in the last few episodes.
AMC has some of the greatest shows out there at the moment.

Loved it!! I hope there’s more Daryl in next week’s episode though!!!

Daryl & Glen are my favs, but I hate Shane hope he dies soon

It was an emotional. Absolutely loved it. Hope they can keep up the surprises.
