Overall I like the season, but TWD continues it's traditional of things I just can't buy.  It's too much to believe.  In last week's episode, it's the capabilities of the Whisperers.  They went from people living out in the open along with the walkers to people that can build tunnel systems, harvest resin bombs, build super sling shots and field a well equipped archery force.  They could have taken hilltop with the mass of Walkers alone.  Why was all that necessary?

I'm with you, and Michonne's actions in her last episode are really confounding.  I've been increasingly losing interest in this series this season, mostly because the writers seem to make creative decisions that don't jibe with character traits or situations they've previously established.  Like what you mention above, or Michonne totally going to a mysterious place with a relative unknown, letting herself get poisoned, leaving her kids, etc.  At this stage in her reality, I can't fathom she'd make the choices she made in this show.  I admittedly haven't even been watching every single episode of this season, merely kind of checking in whenever I had the time (which, as a HS teacher, I have a lot of these days).  While I think the narrative of Michonne's "What If..." alternate life are intriguing, and kinda reinforces my legit belief that Rick's crew look like a bunch of A-hole badguys from a different perspective, getting her to that tripped-up state was confounding to me.  It's like the bad-writing act of "I have this idea of something cool so I'm going to completely force it narratively instead of organic actions bringing us here."  For me the actions leading up (and coming out of) were handled so dumbly it's hard for me to get over them to embrace the cooler aspects.

I really felt like Danai Gurira's final episode had potential, but we're in a stage now where show runners don't want to "burn" characters that are popular and instead will just make their disappearance vague with hopes they can woo her back in the fold at some point.  I haven't been posting a lot this season mostly because nowadays I want to live my entertainment with THE LAST JEDI philosophy: Don't fight what I hate, but saving and embracing what I love.  I don't want to trash something I'm not that interested in just because, but instead focus on what excites me.  And this season, unfortunately, TWD just isn't thrilling me.  There's potential, and I'm interested to see how the show handles 'The Commonwealth,' so maybe I'll check back in at the end of the season, presumably after the much-drug-out Whisperers storyline is done (note: Samantha Morton is a great actress and wonderful as Alpha; I can get why the show runner & writers want to keep her around as long as possible).

AMC has announced that the last episode of this season will not be aired as scheduled, since production on it cannot be completed at this time.

It will insead be aired as a standalone episode at some time in the future.

Morbidly, I kinda dig how this pandemic is shedding the light on just how last-minute production studios work on Visual FX prior to release.  BLACK WIDOW finished principal photography back in early October 2019 and still had to be pushed back.  Production for season 10 was completed in November 2019 but post still not completed 2+ weeks from air date!  Obviously, we all already experienced the debacle of CATS a few months ago, where VFX weren't even complete upon the film's wide-release opening!  Maybe this pandemic will force studios to maintain a better production schedule, and not necessarily start with the concept of a release date and work backwards

I think a lot of us, (especially those of us on this site) can find a lot of similarities between aspects of Princess' personality and our own.

She is going to be popular with cosplaying, it's a really easy comfortable outfit.  Plus you don't need the gun to know the outfit, which I like.

Yeah, when I read she was introduced I think _now_ I'm going to have to catch up on what I've missed.  I really dig that character, and if she's played fairly accurate to the books I'll be happy (and that's the type of character, IMO, "The Walking Dead" needs to inject into their world, tonally).

So far (1 episode) yes, she is.
