In a display of raw emotion, actor Andrew Lincoln renders Rick’s inner torment as he sees a child that clearly reminds him of his own daughter Judith — while realizing that he likely just murdered her father. He barely has time to think before he’s caught at gunpoint by another Savior, revealed to be a character named Morales from all the way back in the show’s first season. (Morales split with Rick’s group when they decided to travel to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.) The man is now apparently a member of Negan’s crew, and tells Rick that he’s already called in backup to capture him. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 2: The Damned

Slack's billing growth, a key indicator of future revenue, slowed in the second quarter and the workplace messaging app owner said it took a $11 million hit in the first half due to the Covid-19 related concessions. The company said it offered credits, payment in installments and billing duration of less than a year to help users tide over the economic downturn triggered by the health crisis, sending its shares down 18% after the bell. Slack had in the previous quarter signaled weak demand from worst-affected industries like retail and travel, prompting it to withdraw its full-year billings target. "In Q2, growth in many of our customers contracted or flattened versus normal seasonal trends. In August, growth began to trend at more typical seasonal levels," Chief Financial Officer Allen Shim said in a call with analysts. Slack's quarterly billings rose 25%, but it fell short of the 38% growth it posted in the first quarter. Billings are an important metric for growth for a … [Read more...] about Slack’s quarterly billing growth slows due to Covid-19 concessions

The duo end up running into a pair of straggling Saviors which does inject some real purpose to the escapade. The Saviors are trying to rig a truck with a giant pair of speakers in order to lure the zombie horde away from the Sanctuary, buthe ensuing firefight feels silly and pointless. It’s made even worse by some sloppy CGI employed when Rosita fires a random RPG at one of the men, and he disintegrates in a bloodless explosion that looks spliced in from a B-movie action flick. When one of the Saviors escapes in the truck, there’s a momentary sense that there’s some real gravity to the situation — perhaps it’s Michonne and Rosita’s failure that sets Negan’s comeback into motion! — but even that justification is tossed aside when Daryl and Tara miraculously appear to sideswipe the vehicle and save the day. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 6: The King, the Widow, and Rick
Rick and Jadis redux Last week Rick found himself trapped again by Jadis and her group of garbage dump-dwellers, and “Time for After” checks in with the pair throughout its running time. Rick is routinely trotted out half-naked from a shipping container to be photographed by Jadis for “sculpting” purposes, and is flatly ignored when he offers her a deal. The situation comes to a head when Jadis finally decides to execute Rick by putting him up against another gladiator-style walker with a spike-ridden helmet, similar to the battle he faced last season. It’s another effective Mad Max-style sequence, building on Jadis’ cult-like ritualism and offbeat linguistic quirks. Rick, of course, manages to turn the walker against Jadis to coerce her into negotiating, and she finally agrees to help — on the condition that she get one-fourth of the Saviors’ supplies. … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead Villain Watch season 8, episode 7: Time for After
