Glad it turned out to be the Wolves and not the Whisperers, as some had been speculating online. I'm not so sure this is _____'s gang though, I think these schmoes may be more akin to the Scavengers from the comics. Leaderless riff-raff who just move from place to place looting and killing. That was some crazy ass walker trap though!



Haven't read forward into the comics yet to know about the Wolves, Whisperer's and whoever is "blank" here.  I wonder though if the leader of the Wolves is the guy that Aaron was talking about with Darryl (Davidson if remember correctly?).  I can't see why they would have "named" him during that part of the discussion if he wasn't going to come back and haunt the Alexandrites.


I thoroughly enjoyed the finale last night.  I thought they tied up the stories nicely and set up the next wave for Season 6.  I was on the edge of my seats a few times wondering what was going to go down.   Didn't have to kill off a main character to keep me in suspense.

I though that initially as well, but they seemed to strongly imply the Wolves only learned about the Safe Zone after recovering Aaron's backpack and looking through the photos. I think they said as much on TD. The exiled guy would have known about it all along.

I thought it was a great episode and I'm curious about who the Wolves are.  I'm sure there's more than just those two idiots, and they are pretty spread out since they alluded that they are the ones who attacked Noah's home.

I like how Morgan saved Aaron and Daryl.  Then the final scene where Rick kills the doc, just as Morgan shows up.  It's almost like their roles are reversed from the last time we saw Morgan and Rick together!

Glad the Fear the Walking Dead starts this summer.  It will ease the pain of having to wait until October to see the next season!

I guess all the gruesomeness of the Noah episode kind of made me ease off wanting a bloodbath for the finale...  So I was ok with it being more a suspense to the next season thing.  They always have some kind of thing to dangle at you anyway.

I thought Glenn was maybe gonna bite it at one point or another, since they basically had him escape, twice.  I figured they'd off him on a 3rd at one point and perhaps deviate from his comic story, as I've heard.

Look at things this way, the new show starts this Summer, so there's always that to look forward to a little sooner than the old show's return in October.

I acknowledge I say this because I'm still hoping that the Wolves are the S@%&#*s. It seemed like the pictures the Wolves guy was looking at were of Rick, etc. So maybe they were going for Davidson (do they ever tell us you know who's last name in the comics?) will be interested to know Alexandria has taken in new people and not that they are now learning of Alexandria all together?

Who was on TD? Now if actors and producers on TD implied the picture thing was the Wolves learning of Alexandria my hopeful theory makes no sense.

I do think Davidson is going to be you know who which obviously changes his character some (hopefully just back story changes). I agree mentioning Davidson makes no sense if you aren't going to bring him back in some way. So the question is are the Wolves w/ him or a different group?

The more I think about the show vs the comic I've concluded the wolves are the scavengers, not the cooler s group and season six will end with you know who making his crazy powerful first appearance. The internet might explode next summer

Who's this "you-know-who" you keep referring to? Is there some Harry Potter crossover in the comics? Or are you just talking about Negan?

Yeah, I don't consider names of future characters to be spoilers, unless you say "Zeek is definitely going to appear at the start of Season 6" because you saw it on IMDB.

But the fact that there's a dude named Nagan in the comics isn't a spoiler.  I saw the dude from Mad Men is rumored to get the role.

I'm through about the first 55 issues of the books.  Trying not to get ahead of the show.

The Voldemort stuff in The Walking Dead comics is kind of a let down......

Davidson was an actual character in the comics, pretty similar to how he's been mentioned in the show.  He was the guy that founded Alexandria and was cast out by Douglas, never to be seen again.  Rick passes by his gravestone at one point in the comics, but they never really go back to him.  He could be playing a broader role in the show ...or that could just be a red herring.
