Holy knuckle sandwich Batman! What an episode! Welcome back to Walking Dead Weekly. I watched the last few seconds of last night’s episode with my mouth hanging open. Literally. It hung open a good 30 seconds or so after it ended. For a non-season finale to end like that is quite impressive. So much to talk about, but before we get started–
Try, started out being very annoying thanks to the “Run mix” featuring Nine Inch Nails. I appreciate what Trent Reznor did for music but that song just grated on my nerves. I commend the Walking Dead sound staff if that’s the effect they were going for. I absolutely loved how they had Deanna watching Nicholas’ interview while Glen was letting Rick know what really happened.
Sasha, I love you but I am officially on the “Sasha needs to die” bandwagon. Seriously. Shape up or let’s have Michonne take you out. I get that she has to work things out, but she is wasting a ridiculous amount of ammo in a world where resources are not all that plentiful.
Carl and Enid sitting in a tree. I think that whole deal was well played. They didn’t go for the traditional kiss. There is definitely something she is hiding. Not sure totally what it is yet. I’m thinking we might find out next week.
Rick’s collision course with Jessie’s husband, Pete, came to fruition and in grand fashion. I was sure Rick or someone else was going to kill him. I didn’t want it to be Rick. Especially after he told Jessie about his feelings for her. I think Rick went right to the edge and actually held on to the last shred of his humanity. I was shocked at the one who ended the situation, but understand fully why she did. Next week’s finale should be amazing.
Questions: So what happens now? Daryl and Aaron are close to finding out who is butchering and torturing people in the forest. It looks like Rick might be put on trial to see if he should stay or not. He openly challenged Deanna’s authority, waved a gun around, and threatened pretty much anyone who stood against him. What about the good doctor? I’m not sure how they plan on trusting him, especially with Tara. Speaking of trust, where was the minister of deception? Gabriel was absent. Why didn’t Deanna interview Glen? (perhaps she did off screen)
Deanna seems a lot more shrewd then she let on. I think between her son dying, Gabriel talking trash and Rick’s rumble in the middle of happy town, she has probably had enough of the entire group. I am going to call my shot that Rick’s trial gets interrupted by hostile forces. Either walkers or the people who have been mutilating them.
Will we finally see Morgan in the season finale? He could come in handy right now. Perhaps he could get Sasha back on track. I mean, if he came back from losing his wife and son, maybe he could help her. He could also talk some sense into Deanna. I have a feeling things will end like all the other sanctuaries: being over run by walkers.
Zombie kill of the week: It’s kind of a tandem win this week. The scene where Sasha was shooting walkers in the head while Michonne was having flashbacks of beheading them with her katana was beautiful. Well, I mean as far as killing walkers can be.
That’s it for this week’s installment, hope you liked it as much as I do. See you next week!
