There’s been a week for the dust to settle on The Walking Dead‘s latest excuse for a finale, and while you can fault it for a whole lot of reasons, at least it started a conversation. A mostly negative and irritated conversation, but a conversation nonetheless.
Courtesy of NerdBrainBlog, here’s another post that airs some different grievances about the episode. Those unfamiliar with the comics should be warned of source material spoilers, but if you’ve been paying attention all season, you probably know what happened and then can maybe say what will happen next.
There’s some really interesting analysis in there–the thing that draws me the most is the parallel between Rick, who is a savage murderer, and Negan, who is also a savage murderer. In a better show, that sort of gray dichotomy would make for some pretty great storylines. But will it in season 7 (longer than The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Wire or Breaking Bad lasted, mind you) of Zombierama? I guess I’ll just have to hate-watch to find out.
