I loved that they knocked off the radio antenna and then made sure the driver emptied guns, before they finalised the plan.
Well, you beat me to it. When the cowboys rode after the stagecoach I thought the same thing. Then they sit around a campfire drinking moonshine. All it needed was some plates of baked beans.This episode could have been titled "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly."
It had a definite spaghetti western flavor to it. I found myself thinking "they've got to be kidding" watching closeups of snorting nostrils and dirt-scraping hooves, as the rag-tag group of silly-masked riders awaited the SWAT wagon arrival.
Then came the chase, in which the battle wagon could apparently muster no more speed than a Gunsmoke stage coach.
I agree, they need to cut of the head off the Hydra and take down Ginny. Her deputies may try to take charge instead, some innocents will be killed, but there is no other way. However, their plan here was ill-thought out and poorly planned; Ginny didn't even come. If they had shot at the Rangers they would have failed. So, Morgan just happened to be right today. It cannot be put off forever. His 'promised land' is not safe while Ginny still rules. The best plan would be to work from the inside as well as out, so that an attack and an insurrection happen together. That is going to be hard because the people under Ginny's control seem to have reached the third stage of the three psychological reactions experienced by all inmates, that of disillusionment, which is the discovery that suffering does not end, and that the longed-for happiness will never come.Morgan was again a disappointment here. The pacifist, turned killer, turned pacifist, turned killer, has again turned pacifist? Seems like it would be easier to take Ginny out than to free all of the innocents from her various communities.

We'll have to see how Morgan can draw Ginny out to somewhere he can kill her without risk to the others. If she wouldn't come to see the new group of 100 people they claimed there was on the radio, then it will need to be something very special that gets her alone. She is cleverer than Negan, and she is always well protected. If Morgan has a plan, he is keeping it to himself. I just hope it isn't a long drawn out plan either, as those parts of the Negan and the Alpha stories were the most tedious on TWD. FTWD has always been much more fast moving.When Morgan decides to take her out, he'll do it when there is less risk to others.
