Since I don’t analyze TV shows/movies as in-depth as I do books here are just some of my general thoughts on the finale tonight:
1. I was convinced Glenn or Daryl were going to die for pretty much the entire episode. I’m not sure why but knowing that Glenn is dead in the comics always makes me nervous when he’s in any sort of peril.
2. Morgan’s back! And he’s not crazy! He’s oddly zen and I really hope that in Season 6 they go a bit into his backstory and we find out how he went from the total crazy person he was in ‘Clear’ to one of the more sane people in the finale ‘Conquer’. Now that would be a story.
3. I kind of want Michonne to take over Alexandria. She’s got far more sense than Rick or Deanna. Rick’s riding the crazy train right now and Deanna is probably going to get there after losing her husband and son in such a short period of time. I don’t mean that Rick is as crazy as he was in the prison but he really does need to tone things down before he goes full Shane.
4. Go Carol!
5. Who are the Wolves? And what’s their endgame? They seem pretty messed up and I think they’ll be a major plot point in Season 6 but at the same time Scott Gimple has said that while people were the main threat in previous seasons, they won’t be in Season 6. (That was in the letter Chris Hardwick read aloud on Talking Dead.)
Did you guys watch the finale? Thoughts?
