Warning: contains spoilers If you already recovered your breath after the previous Game of Thrones episode then you obviously weren’t paying proper attention. Death, dragons, Daenerys unleashing total devastation upon her enemies.

“No more talk” - after two seasons and 15 episodes of merciless baseball bat-swinging, gunfire and unadulterated battle, The Walking Dead is on the cusp of drawing yet another era to a close. The latest episode of season 8 - its penultimate outing titled 'Worth,' - was largely designed to put the playing pieces in place ahead of next week's conclusion serving as a 50-minute emblem of these three words spoken by the villainous Negan as the episode ends. Negan has a point: there really is nothing more to be said; his conversation with Rick has been exhausted. From the moment he ended the life of Abraham and Glenn two whole seasons ago, this was only ever going tend one way which in turn renders all the near-misses and detours featured throughout the past few seasons as filler.
