The Walking Dead Ep 715 "Something They Need" - Review

This is We Talk Dead from The HMC! Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe review The Walking Dead, Season 7, Episode 715 "Something They Need".

The season 7 finale of The Walking Dead is quickly upon us - No! This week in Ep 715 "Something they Need", Tara leads the Rick and the gang to the Ocean to meet the ladies with all the guns and we also meet some of the coolest Walkers ever - Barnacle Beach Walkers! Gregory proves even more useless than we thought when he can't manage to kill a Walker and must be saved by pregnant Maggie (#maggie2020). But it doesn't look like he's gonna take her help so graciously, plots of betrayal are hatched. Over at the Savior's compound we find Sasha locked up in Daryl's "Easy Street" cell about to be raped when she is saved by Negan - what! Not so fast, he has plans for her. It seems Eugene also has plans, to stay a total coward.

Listen up for all our thoughts and predications for the finale. And as always, visit for more episodes of We Talk Dead, movie reviews, Game reviews and more.

The Walking Dead Ep 712 "Say Yes" - Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe review The Walking Dead Episode 712 "Say Yes" for the HMC's weekly We Talk Dead podcast.

Rick and Michonne go on a vacation in search of batteries, guns and sex. On their extended travels they discover an old carnival stock full of supplies and soldiers, for some unexplained reason. Those Walker soldiers have the guns they need however they have to get to them first. But this is no problem for our heroes, right? They seem to think so taking a momentary respite from the pain and suffering of their reality, the two flirt it up like a couple on their honeymoon. Of course, that doesn't last long. In true Walking Dead style, they face some close calls that lead to a moment of panic wondering if Rick has finally been defeated. They can't kill Rick, right?

Justice for this episode as it delivers on some great zombie action reminding us why started watching The Walking Dead in the first place.

Review - The Walking Dead Episode 710 "New Best Friends"

This week on We Talk Dead, a review and recap of The Walking Dead ep 710 "New Best Friends". Is this the Walking Dead or Resident Evil? Is this the Walking Dead or Road Warrior? Yeah, we're asking the same questions. Rick and the gang find themselves in a landfill with some new best friends and Wilson, the spiked up, armored Walker that Rick is forced to fight. Meanwhile back in The Kingdom, Daryl defends Carol, then reunites with his pal, Morgan loses his big stick, and Gabriel finds his balls - who knew he had them!

The Walking Dead Ep 709 "Rock in the Road" - Review

The Walking Dead is back! So is The HMC with our weekly series, We Talk Dead. This week we review the midseason premiere, Episode 9, Rock in the Road.

Rick and the gang are back and they are recruiting! It's gonna take more than just the gang at Alexandria to take on Negan and the Saviors. Roll call, Alexandria, Hilltop, maybe/hopefully The Kingdom, and it looks like a brand new group based on the "You've got to be effin kidding me" look on Rick's face at the end of this episode when they're surrounded by a new group. No sign of Negan, part from a radio appearance, but buckle up folks, we are in for a rocky and drawn out finale to Season 7.

On this week's episode of We Talk Dead, we recap The Walking Dead, Season 7, Ep 703 "The Cell".

We find our beloved Daryl Dixon at Negan's compound at the mercy of Dwight, who is tasked with breaking him into a loyal Negan warrior. He's got three options, 1) Work for Negan as a Walker fenced in on a spike, 2) Work for points wrangling walkers 3) Bend the knee and lose his identity but gain a warm bed, clothes and human food. What shall he choose? It is Daryl #neverbroken
