TWD Season Five Finale

Okay, So I don’t have a book review for you today because I am not quite finished with the book that I am currently reading.  I am about half way through, so hopefully I will have it done  by next Monday.  But I am going to share with you my thoughts on the season finale of The Walking Dead from last night.  And I thought that since it is based on a comic, it was appropriate for today’s topic.

STOP: if you have not seen the season finale and want to watch it please be aware that there are spoilers ahead.

So If you didn’t know, I am a huge walking dead fan.  Like huge.  The world and time stop when it is on.  My father and I watch it together with our dog, yes she is a fan too.  (we catch her watching it with it)  And last night’s episode was intense.  Really intense.  Everything came to a head.  I was quite concerned for our little family and at one point I thought we were going to lose all of them.  I thought Daryl was going to die to save Aaron, I thought Glenn was going to get eaten, I thought Sasha was going to murder Father Gabriel (still not a fan of this character), and of course I thought that Rick was going to be kicked out of Alexandria.  I mean it all really came to a head.  Father Gabriel, even though I don’t like him I think that he saved Rick’s life by leaving the gate open.  Without that he would probably not have met Morgan again.  The Wolves terrify me and can I just say that the guy that held Morgan at gun point in the beginning was an amazing actor!  I mean seriously, the intensity and emotion was just amazing!  The trap that the Wolves set up…ingenious.  I mean who would have thought that a rave party would reset the trap.  There is beauty in madness.  I wonder what conflicts will be like with them?

So as I said my father and I watch this together.  We get lost in each episode so much that we forget time all together.  That was what happened last night.  We were watching, literally on the edge of our seats and then it just ended with Morgan watching Rick kill Pete….OMG!  My father and I both said “sonofabitch that was intense” as we hit the closest object.  Excuse the language.  I mean seriously.  My best friend also watches it and her reaction was…mind blown. Which is a good description.  It was an amazing ending to the season.  I think it was seriously the best season thus far with all of the conflicts not just with the people of Alexandria but also themselves.  The writers and producers have really stepped it up a notch.

I am looking forward to next season, I am not sure if it will be the last or not, I am hoping for the latter.  But at least this time they are giving us a spinoff to watch!  So that is a plus.  It of course won’t be anything like the original, but I’m sure that it will be good all the same.  The spinoff is called Fear The Walking Dead.

Super excited about the upcoming season 6.  I can’t wait to see what they throw at up next!  What were your thoughts on last night’s finale?  Did you like it or not?
