(either that, or some VERY sketchy zombie makeup, which has not been the case ever).

When I was watching the episode last night and they showed a super closeup of Dwight's face, it was easy to see the lines of his facial prosthetic.

Keep in mind that the suggestion that Georgie is actually Pamela Milton is only a theory right now. As far as I know, there has been no official confirmation of that.

I discuss that theory, as well as the rest of the episode, in my review here.

Yeah, his prosthetic and makeup has ALWAYS been pretty sketchy IMO.  I think generally, though, a featured zombie on TWC shows generally has pretty impeccable makeup: like, I often think they put the majority of their budget on zombie makeup sometimes at the expense of other stuff (like Dwight's pretty-bad makeup)

Tonight’s season finale was ok. I did like the twist and that possible civil war story for next season. The series needs something big, and friends fighting friends would help a lot. Let’s see if it goes anywhere though...and please, pick up the pacing. Go crazy next season TWD. This playground has endless possibilities, so use it fully TWD crew.

As for Fear, not bad. I did like the new characters (minus the dumb things they did) and the ending wasn’t bad. I also don’t mind Morgan being that ‘bridge’ for both Walking Dead shows...the crossover has begun!

Why not just talk to each other and decide what to do? Why does Rick get to decide what happens to Negan and no one else's opinions matter? I know it's less dramatic and less conflict that way, but I was super annoyed. Maybe if Rick had told them that he wasn't going to kill Negan because of Carl, Maggie wouldn't have helped to bring them down.

I do have to admit that I've only been half watching for a couple of seasons, I usually multitask while I'm watching, so it may be that I missed something that explained everything. I'm not as invested in this show as I used to be (above rant excluded, I guess).

Did anyone see Eugene in the last segment? Did he stay with the Saviors or go back to Alexandria?

I did not see Eugene in the last segment. That's an interesting point. I was also wondering who was in charge of the Sanctuary. In the comics, Dwight and Sherry took over, but right now in the show they're both MIA.

I like the direction of Maggie secretly working against Rick, but I was shocked that Jesus was with her on it. He seems more like the forgiving type. OTOH, I think Rosita would be on Maggie's side.

Yup, I found this totally out of character for him. Not thrilled with this twist.

I was underwhelmed with the finale.... Glad that the constant back and forth between the 2 groups is over, I felt that they dragged it on way too long. It was to the point that I had started waiting to watch it later in the week. I can't say that I was surprised by Eugene, kind of thought that he had something up his sleeve.
Tho, I do agree with others.... didn't see Jesus siding with Maggie about doing away with Negan.

Remember when Rick quietly threatened Negan?  I predict Rick will keep his promise and eventually kill Negan at some point.


I stand corrected.  Rick's decision to spare Negan came as an unexpected surprise.

Loved your review!  I too was surprised that Rick spared Negan.  I also didn't understand the purpose of the stained glass windows when Rick and Negan were fighting.

We watched both Walking Dead & Fear the Walking Dead last night at one of our local movie theaters - Fathom events thing. It was a lot of fun being in a sold-out theater, with everyone reacting, clapping, etc. It was weird though -- in a big room (theater), full of people....I kept feeling like the cast were going to walk out at any moment and Q&A was going to start. I think all these SDCC panels have skewed my reality - those things don't happen in everyday life. LOL ;D

I though Maggie's disappointment was heartbreaking. Wth why didn't Rick kill Negan? I took the stained glass windows, which are found in churches, as symbolic of Rick's enlightenment (sort of enlightenment?). He comes full circle. He says, "My mercy has overcome my wrath." Which has spiritual overtones, spirit conquering the flesh. Lol or not. :)

Anyone have theories on the helicopters and the woman "trading knowledge" for next season? I wonder if the pastor getting sick is going to have an important role later.
