ALERT: SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED YET.
It’s over and I’m crying. Season 5 of the Walking Dead has come and gone, and I can’t wait for the next season to start. This season was amazing. We saw some deaths, a location change and the introduction of new people. The finale was an hour and half long, leading up to a pivotal switch in Alexandria where our characters left off. Here are some highlights from the night that made this one of the best seasons to date.
Best Quote of the Night
“Just tell them a story they want to hear. That’s what I’ve been doing since I got here.” “Why?” “Because these people are children, and children like stories.”
This is why Carol rocks. She’s calm and cool and collected. She understands the people of Alexandria are ignorant, and have no idea how to survive.
Morgan Kicks Wolf Butt With A Big Stick
Morgan is a bad ass kicking wolf butt. That’s right, we got to meet the two less than savory individuals who I believe are building an army of walkers as they think they can transform them. WACKO’S! They have W’s on their forehead and although appear crazy, I believe they are more dangerous than we think.
SCarol Gives It To Pete
Carol or (SCarol) as we know her has turned into a real hardcore bi$%CH this season and I’m freaking loving it! She puts a knife to Pete’s throat and tells him she can kill him if she wants. She calls him weak and pathetic. It’s awesome to see how she’s evolved from taking on big guys like Pete to scaring the crap out of little kids.
Okay yeah a bit creepy. Sasha whom know is losing her mind and way, builds a mass grave for all the walkers she has killed and then decides to take an afternoon nap with them. Grab a blanket Sasha those guys are cold – no warmth there!
I screamed so loud. Why on earth Glenn didn’t kill Nicholas is beyond me, especially after A##% shot him and fed him to the walkers. Glenn is a savior and has a ton of patience that’s for sure!
The Wolves Strike!
If you find canned goods it’s most likely a trap. How Daryl didn’t see this one coming is beyond me. But when he takes out three walkers with a whip chain it was awesome — heads were rolling! The boys Daryl and Aaron find themselves trapped inside a car with a note that reads – trap, bad people coming- get out!
Morgan Saves The Day!
Morgan comes in the knick of time, thank God because I thought Daryl was going to have his last cigarette after saying he would sacrafice himself to save Aaron. They kinda got a bromance going on and I’m liking it. Will Morgan ever find Rick?
Dumbass Gabrial Makes Amends
Father Gabrial loses his mind, attempts to give himself to a walker, kills it then cries like a baby in the middle of the road. He comes back to Alexandria and doesn’t close the gate. He lets zombies inside where you know kids are sleeping. Then he attacks Sasha begging her to kill him. Thankfully Maggie comes and allows him forgiveness. Bunch of softies on this show LOL. WTG – now say a million hale Mary’s and pray you don’t get eaten!
Best Zombie Kill
My kid thought this scene was uber cool as he puts it. Rick squeezes the dead out of the zombie until he splats! It was kinda gross, though not nearly as much as Noah’s death scene. RIP Noah. Rick almost looks like he’s laughing.
Zombies & Marshmellows
Rick brings a zombie to the cumbaya campout the townsfolk are having to kick him out of Alexandria. I personally prefer hotdogs, but Rick wanted to make a point. It’s not just people they need to worry about such as Pete, but the walkers are still out there and his speech to everyone is fantastic! Here’s where I can’t wait to see next season.
Deanna Learns the Hard Way!
We say goodbye to Reg after Pete accidentally slices his throat open. Yeah okay who let this guy live? Oh right it was Deanna, and for it she lost her husband and love. She turns to Rick and in a super cool moment says “Do it!” Rick doesn’t hesitate to put a bullet in Pete’s skull, or does he? Is Pete really dead?
Rick Guess What Morgan Found You!
The look on Rick’s face when Morgan calls his name. It’s like omg are you really here? Morgan is like omg did you really just shoot that guy? The world has gone to hell in a handbasket!
The Wolves: How Dangerous Are They?
The Wolves are dangerous, and I believe we haven’t seen the last of them. I love the disco music they use to rally their army. I’m curious if these guys are the ones Aaron was talking about having to exile from Alexandria. He said it was two guys and a girl, offside and they didn’t work out. A few episodes back they found a girl with a W on her forehead sacrificed and tied to a tree. Seems the boys thought she was DEAD weight.
I hate that we have to wait until October for the next season to start. But have no fear AMC is smart and has a new spinoff coming to keep us entertained until then.
