The Walking Dead -- Season Finale -- "A" -- 3/30/14





As multiple paths collide, Rick comes face to face with sheer brutality. Will he and the group have what it takes to survive?

Written by: Scott M. Gimple & Angela Kang
Directed by: Michelle MacLaren


Episode 16 of 16



Last episode of the season. Will return in October.


Should be an interesting episode. Michelle MacLaren in case you don't know was also one of the Producers and Directors on Breaking Bad. She usually directs one of the better episodes.

I wonder if that poster is a red herring to make us think someone will survive who won't?

Re: The Walking Dead -- Season Finale -- "A" -- 3/30/14

That picture above seals it, she's dead for sure... plus, Glenn burning her picture last episode, way too obvious.

Now, that being said, because I like her character and I think she's hot... the show runners could throw a complete curveball and NOT kill her off but that's highly doubtful seeing how simple and silly these episodes are playing out. Plus, I'm starting to lose (read, have completely lost) interest in the "what main character are we gonna kill off this episode?" aspect of the show. Why do they feel the need to kill off main characters every season, we get it already... BORING! Don't the writers have anything more creative in that brian trust of theirs? They (the writers) are using the rule book from "freshman lit 101" and in doing so will just continue to ring that cash register. Like I said, I'm losing interest in this show at a rapid pace.

I have a theory on how they wrap the entire series... it's more than obvious that they (the production) will never leave the Atlanta area, the final episode of the entire series will be Rick waking up in his hospital bed surrounded by his friends and family, everything normal... it was all just a dream. Boom, book it!

Re: The Walking Dead -- Season Finale -- "A" -- 3/30/14

After watching all of the episodes this season, I've drawn the following conclusion about the finale:

- Michonne and Tyreese won't make it out of this episode alive.
- We'll discover what happened to Beth (not good)
- We'll see that the guys that Daryl are hanging out with are far, far worse than we think

"Claimed"

Re: The Walking Dead -- Season Finale -- "A" -- 3/30/14

Not really specific but this has my interest:
Spoiler:

According to Lincoln, something happens to Rick that, even accounting for the deaths of his wife and (he believes) his infant daughter, will be the most brutal thing he has endured in the show’s history.

“I will say that something happens in the finale that when I read it, I called Scott Gimple, the showrunner, because we’ve always been incredibly responsible with the violence in this show. And I just wanted to ask, ‘Is this a step too far?’”

Comic Spoilers
Spoiler:

I was thinking that perhaps Carl gets shot in the face or has his hand chopped off like comic Rick. As I posted in the death prediction thread I expect Carl to go at some point, as the actor is getting bigger quickly and the story is only 2-3 years out.

Another suggestion is that perhaps Rick will just lose track of Carl or he is lost ala Sophia. This way they can always have a spin off or reintroduce the character later on as an adult.

I think it would be neat to have one character survive the Walking Dead from child to adult, as I'm sure AMC fully intends to milk TWD forever.

I thought the same about Mad Men but it's done after this season, kinda shocked cause it's one of the better shows on TV seems a bit premature to end it IMHO.

I think that's preferable to dragging it out forever though. If they have a good proper ending that's emotionally satisfying for the viewers, then I think that's great.

I'm thinking that this is the point where Carl get's popped in the head.


I also think that the folks that Daryl are hanging out with...
Spoiler:
... are the Terminus townspeople.

If they do that, the final scene should be everybody turning to the camera and giving the middle finger to the audience.

I think that perhaps

comic spoiler
Spoiler:
Rick loses his hand this ep. The Governor took it off in the comic, but this is completely different, so I wouldn't be surprised to see that happen now, given how they like to keep the same events, but in a different order.

Exactly what I was thinking. I was happy seeing "comic" Rick there as well.
