The Walking Dead Season Finale Wrap Up

By Christine Caprilozzi

 

The Walking Dead Season Finale Wrap Up 

 

Synopsis: Daryl finds himself in trouble while out on the run. Meanwhile, in Alexandria, Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders as danger lurks near the gates.

 

Thoughts: **SPOILERS** Well there was a ton of hype around the season 5 finale of The Walking Dead, but did it deliver the goods?

One of the biggest developments, which has been teased throughout the season, was the return of Morgan. We first see him Morgan whooping ass of a new evil crew of “Wolves,” which answers the question of the W emblazoned on some of the walkers’ foreheads.  It is then predictable when Aaron and Daryl fall for their trap of a tractor trailer truck load full of zombies.  This impossible situation, of course rectifies itself when Morgan shows up and the internet does not break. The two also lead him back to Alexandria, where the show ends with him meeting up with Rick. A great heartwarming moment, but also good to have Morgan there as I’m sure this new sinister group will be a force to be reckoned with next season. read more
