What a cool fresh idea to close out the series... our band of hero characters runs into a dangerous group of other people!

If you did not watch last night's episode, even if you haven't watched the show in a while, go watch it!  They put a lot of great horror elements in it and using Connie's perspective (she's deaf, so they removed the sound), it was done brilliantly.  Then I saw that the episode was directed by Greg Nicotero, so it made sense.
This is the way.

That was pretty cool.

Overall, I can't decide how I feel about this season.  We're what 5 or 6 episodes in and while we can see the bad guys, what's the point?  The episodes don't feel like fillers for once, but at the same time I'm not even sure where they are going.  We've got 24 episodes, so they better start evolving and moving the story quick if they want to tie the finale up all nice and neat...unless they are planning to do something with the movies. 

The movies though, they haven't even started production and are just looking at scripts.  If they wait too long, which I fear they have, then the movies might flop just because people will have lost interest.  This isn't Marvel, I don't think they can run TV shows into movies and vice versa.

I have similar concerns Chris.  They have the second and final season of World Beyond starting this week (I think) and that is supposed to be a direct lead in to the Rick Grimes movies.  I fully expect Rick and Michonne to show up in the Walking Dead series finale and those movies need to happen pretty quick to explain what Rick's been doing since he "died" in the show.

Its funny, but my wife and I watched it and didn't really care for it just because of the horror element.  We miss the story lines and growth that used to exist in this show.  It seems recently that each season finds more ways to add more elements of gore.

This episode felt like someone's film school project with the non-sensical horror house with no way out, Gollum crab cannibal people, and torture scene.  It didn't seem to fit in to the normal Walking Dead aesthetic, but I can understand how people that like the horror genre would like this episode more.

Are you watching World Beyond? I gave it about an episode and decided it was just terrible with poor acting, directing, etc.  I won't go back.  However, I've really enjoyed FTWD in recent seasons.

I suffered though the first season...it did get better as it went on, but none of those kids should be alive....they are dumber than the folks in Fear the Walking Dead during the outbreak.

Well you’ll both be unsurprised to hear that the promos for World Beyond are already saying it’s “The Final Season.”

That's not breaking news, it was always planned as a two season run.

Ah, I had no idea.  I just watch then delete them off the DVR.  I don’t pay enough attention beyond that.

With one third of the final season out, I have to say, there are a lot of things I like even with the formulaic aspect of the reapers.


Nice twist with the death of Pope and what's he nuts taking over and turning on Daryll.  I did not see that part coming.

I'm looking forward to February when the show returns.
