I had a similar thought on Rick/Pete fight but it seems like he was losing at times, and I can't see him letting it get that close is all.  He should've just beat Pete solidly, IMO.  They could've shown him struggle to not kill him a number of ways.  Have Pete come at rick with a shard of the window even?  Make him out to be even more or a dillhole.  I just hated him having any real one on one advantage.  Drives me batty.  Guy beat Shane!  And that was a long time ago when Rick wasn't as hardened.

I'm curious how the finale will set up next season.  It's gonna be interesting for sure.  I figured they'd have established the new threat more by now honestly.

The problem is that once they introduce the "new threat" they're done. They're out of material. They are very close to catching up to the comic now. The next bad guy is the last one. I think they need at least another season of "Farmer Rick" type filler to let the comic forge ahead into some new territory.

And I haven't seen any casting scoop for that role so I am guessing that person will not be in the finale at least.

This is season 5. TV shows don't normally last that much longer even when popular (ie breaking bad). The bad guy, soo excited,  will be hinted if not named, but not shown, on Sunday. They can cast him soon. I think they could do two seasons of him and let the comics jump ahead if the show is still running then and then have more material to base things on

Walking up on a camp of unknown people at night would be dangerous.  Aaron waited until morning to contact Rick's group.

Disagree.  I don't think there's any more danger coming up at night versus the daytime.   Daryl can flank Aaron as backup and they would have a greater element of surprise.  Remember Aaron was watching Rick's group for days and was close enough to overhear conversations. Coming up on a group in daylight without any recon seems like about the most dangerous thing you can do in the WD universe.

I think it might seem that way given how fast they have covered comic material, but they're really still years behind.  Assuming they even go that route, the bad guy you refer to in the comics was around for 3-4 times as many issues as the Governor.  They can easily make a couple seasons out of that storyline if they want to.  There's a ton of material there depending on what they want to cover.  The comic is also several issues past that and on to another threat that would be even cooler to see on TV IMO.  That's three seasons worth of TV if the comic stopped today.

I think if anything Darryl/Aaron would want to recon the group in daylight, just to see what's what.

And yeah, Aaron had a listening device in the car.  That was what made even Michonne question her decision to trust him before they went zombie mowing.

My prediction is the season ends with us hearing his voice while we see Lucille.

That's totally prediction. I don't read internet stuff.
