But is there more to Strand’s turn that meets the eye? While he won’t say whether Strand has ulterior motives (he always does), Domingo insists that Strand is never, ever careless with what he says—or doesn’t say.
“[People say], ‘Well, Strand lies.’ I mean no, he doesn’t. He’s never lied,” asserts Domingo. “I have to hold that to be true and say if he’s going to lie, it has to be a big moment because the things that I know about him is that he may not tell you everything that you need to know, but he’s not going to lie.”
In Domingo’s mind, Strand is methodical and even ethical in his decision-making.
“It’s case by case, it’s very mathematic,” says Domingo of Strand’s methods. “That’s the thing I have always loved about this character. And I sort of fight for that. When you’ve been playing a character for six seasons, you have some ownership, and you work with the writers.”
As one of the longest tenured characters on the show, we’ve seen Strand go through many changes. Compassion and self-preservation have always been at odds within him, but Domingo believes that Strand is settling into a place where he’s finally found balance.
“It’s been interesting to me to see all these different versions of Strand,” says Domingo. “I personally feel this is leading to the ultimate version of Strand, and now we’ve peeled away that sweet onion and we see what’s at the core and what makes him tick. He’s building himself up with all of these things that have kept him alive: being part of the group, being an individual, being a survivor, and I think now, he’s becoming the ultimate version of himself. He’s a bit more ferocious. He’s like, ‘If you’re going to come at me, come at me hard, cause I am coming for you.’”
When Alicia and Strand take notice of a bruised Daniel's uncharacteristically subdued demeanor, Virginia explains he was "just hellbent on getting that darn cat of his."
"Things got ugly because he wouldn't stand down when it didn't go his way," she says. "Everybody's gotta contribute. So just be grateful he still knows how to give a decent haircut, or he'd be cadaver chum right now."
Was Skidmark turned into cat-flavored Fancy Feast and fed to zombies? Daniel, seemingly amnesiac and traumatized from whatever happened since the separation, says he doesn't recognize Alicia or Strand and has no memory of Skidmark.
Reminds me of the joke in which a guy brags he was able to beat a bear with a .22-caliber pistol, but the friend he shot in the leg wasn't so lucky.I thought that that kid was a liability & needed to either grow a pair, or go as he did. His fear was going to end up killing someone other than himself, as some do-gooder, who feels sorry for the guy, trying to save him from his own weakness, ends up dying in his place. With him, it was only a matter of time. Reminded me of TWD when Shane (was that the guy's name?) shot the other guy in a similar way, in order that he, himself could escape with the medicine, etc. Give the walkers something to eat, & maybe you can escape. I would not last 5 minutes!

Yes, he must have been safe enough, as long as he had enough ammunition. I would have thought that by the time he climbed down it would have been all over, one way or another anyway, so we not stay up there until it was?by the time Alicia started shooting they'd all fled. Including the guy on top of the silos.
Yes, unlikely. What if the earlier group had managed it? Or was that the point, was she testing out different groups? So, she was loosing two rangers every time a test occurred. How many times? Didn't the rangers speak to each other?What? The whole sorting out the walkers from the molasses thing to get he secret weapon was just a leadership candidate ingenuity test? Very disappointing, not to mention a plot stretch.
I thought that that kid was a liability & needed to either grow a pair, or go as he did.
But how had he survived so long? This world is over ten years old now. There is no place that characters could have been hiding for ten years. When it was only one or two years than that was possible, but not now. The only people who could have survived for ten years could not be a liability.He was too weak to survive Kirkman's world.
I wasn't sure but surprised we found out so soon.I completely bought Daniel's amnesia, then again its Daniel he knows how to play the long game.
Eugene could make weapons and ammunition. He could fix electrical and electronic items. He was useful and was therefore protected by various different others. I think he's an exception that proves my point. Sanjay being a coward wasn't the problem. Standing out of the way while others got killed instead is a very sensible survival option, but what else did he have? I just don't see how he didn't get used as bait before by someone. We have seen several times that hiding out is not a long term option for survival. No place is safe from either the undead or living gangs.What about Eugene?
