The Walking Dead Season 5 finale Conquer ended with a catapulting drama, so to speak. Something to reel in for preparation for the next season which we will all be waiting on October 2015.
Conquer was a great finale and thanks to AMC that there were no major characters got killed this time. We thought so, but it did not happen.
It was a guessing game as to who will breathe the last between Daryl and Glenn. That moment when Daryl and Aaron got trapped inside a car was a nerve-wrecking moment although we were almost sure that someone will rescue them just to keep the high hopes.
And there was that crucial fight scene between Glenn and Nicholas. When Nicholas pinned Glenn to the ground and left Maggie‘s husband with walkers on top of him was a real panic moment. And then it cut to the next scene. From that moment until we saw Glenn swinging a punch to Nicholas was like forever waiting if we really have to say ‘goodbye, Glenn‘.
In the comics, Glenn supposedly died in the hands of Negan so it was really confusing if Glenn’s fate is already sealed on the TV series.
Let’s catch a breather for a while.
The opening scene was a damn good one where we saw Morgan returning and showing his ninja-style stick swinging skills when he bumped with two Wolves members who tried to disarmed and kill him. These Wolves doesn’t know how Morgan spent living alone and crossing the line with him is a big mistake. Fortunately for them, but we wished the other way around, Morgan let them lived. A move we don’t approve especially when we saw what the Wolves can do to unsuspecting humans they’ll caught and kill.
We rooted for Glenn to kill Nicholas too when he got the chance to because Nicholas was an asshole. But Glenn spared his life and they went back to Alexandria Safe-Zone.
Father Gabriel is another character that made us doubt if he’s a good guy or not. Clearly he made a point that Rick‘s group should never be trusted when he went to see Deanna. He despise the group that saved him from the walkers. But he also puts the blame on him for all the killings that took place in his congregation.
When Sasha, who’s dealing with post traumatic syndrome, threatened to kill him with a gun, we were silently coaxing Sasha to pull the trigger because we don’t really like Gabriel. At that point, Maggie came to patch the two troubled souls and saved Sasha from making the wrong move.
We’re not sure if we are on Rick’s side right now because of his rude behavior towards the people of Alexandria, who happen to be giving them shelter and protection from the outside world. Rick is also showing signs of affection towards Jessie who is married to Pete, the community’s resident surgeon who abuses his wife.
But still, Rick shows that what he’s acting out is just to prove that there are dangerous people out there and they (Alexandria) need to be ready for the worst to come.
Meanwhile, we love how Carol showed Pete how badass she really is. The scene between them made a point how Carol turned from a battered wife to a strong woman she is now. Pete should have learned from there but he did not.
The climax of Conquer came when Pete, in raging anger, killed Reg during the council for Rick’s status in Alexandria. Pete was supposed to attack Rick but Reg came in his way to pacify him. Reg got slashed in the throat by Michonne‘s katana instead.
Realizing the outcome of her leadership, Deanna made a bold decision and commanded Rick to “do it!“, and without hesitation, Rick shot Pete dead.
That’s when Daryl, Aaron, and Morgan arrived at the scene. Morgan, who was shocked, called Rick’s name. Rick, whose face’s bloodied, turned around to Morgan a little bit shocked too seeing his old friend. That moment was like they switched places back in Season 3 when Morgan was not that perfectly sane and Rick was the one who was on his right mind. This time it looks like the other way around.
Looks like it’s going to be another roller-coaster with a lot of suspense with the revelation of the Wolves. They may pose a big threat to Rick’s group and Alexandria, or something, aside from the Wolves might break the community.
Picking up some broken pieces, it’s good to see that Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita patched things up. It’s nice to know that Tara is well and alive too.
While we are kept to wait for the first episode of Season 6, AMC announced and revealed the teaser trailer of The Walking Dead‘s companion series basically titled Fear The Walking Dead. Got mixed reactions on the title, though.
Fear The Walking Dead is a spin-off to The Walking Dead that has an entirely different characters but starts where the apocalyptic walker disease have spread before The Walking Dead story happened.
Here’s the teaser trailer to the upcoming The Walking Dead companion series Fear The Walking Dead.
