  • There were some rumors floating around that Joe's character had some sort of story relation to the characters from the flagship show, Tyreese Williams & Sasha Williams. Will we ever hear any follow-up on this, or was it just speculation and wishful thinking (on the part of Terry Crews, himself)?

  • Could we see Tyreese and Sasha at some point in this show?
    Greg Nicotero's signature on both Sasha and Tyreese deaths

  • Bridget: Based on trailers, and from what we have seen so far in this episode, are the connecting themes of these anthology episodes mental illness and/or unlikely duos forced to work together?

The Old Ways is streaming on Netflix!

  • Are the title sequences to Tales of the Walking Dead an homage to the intros of Fear the Walking Dead seasons 6 and 7, perhaps even seasons 4 & 5?

  • Would you have rather The Walking Dead keep their prior title sequence over the reimagining in Season 9+? Should TWDU shows change their title sequences to keep things fresh?
  • These title sequences can act as fun Easter egg hunts when they make slight changes from season to season or even episode to episode.

  • Do you like THE football? Our hosts get a little carried away laughing at how Evie refers to the sport, Football, as The Football.

  • This episode takes place roughly around the time that Rick Grimes and company were about to or in the process of leaving the prison.
  • Did Joe name his dog Gilligan because they were trapped together on a metaphorical deserted island (for you youngins, a reference to the TV Series, Gilligan's Island)?

  • Dave & Bridget sort out some confusion about the songs that play during the episode -- the takeaway being, ultimately, that Evie & Joe sing best when they are in sync, as friends.
  • This episode features new names for walkers: Toe-Tags & Dead-Eyes. Tap the image, below, to discover other names for walkers in TWDU (anything but zombies).

  • Joe's bike uses solar technology that was invented no later than 2010 which means their stops had to be more frequent so they could charge up (hence the long travel time between Flint & Mt. Pleasant, MI).

  • There are a lot of references to Gilligan's Island in this episode. Joe's dog is named Gilligan, who was the title character of the TV Series. The lamb in the episode is named Skipper, which was named after the co-lead character, Captain Jonas "The Skipper" Grumby.

  • Bridget read an article that theorized about a possible connection to Fear the Walking DeadTEOTWAWKI / Broke Jaw Ranch, from Season 3, had lists of preppers networks. Joe and/or Sandra could have been one of those lists.
