You're not the only person who thought the episode was over the top. Aside from the countless fans, many of the actors including Jeffrey Dean Morgan thought the same thing. Jeffrey even stated this comment about the episode in a interview: "It got to the point where I didn't want to do it anymore ..." Link to interview for those who are interested. http://www.vulture.com/2016/10/jeffrey-dean-morgan-on-the-walking-dead-premiere.html I was angry, disturbed, and sad about the episode, also. I'm sure it was absolute torture for the actors/crew who were there to film it.
