Didn’t see it.  Read about it on CBR.  Probably watch the season finale next week.  Just to see what happens.  One last shot.

I honestly thought two things. Because she was walking with Ezekiel I really expected him there.

I also wondered during the episode if they would flip the script and take out Carol/Daryl/Michone and that group and put them on spits.

Mrs Nerd was a bit mad at me when she found out I suspected that was coming up and didn't tell her.

That had to be the most low key season finale that show has had.

I will say that while cool visually, the winter scenes did not seem to be written by folks that have lived in a region with an actual winter. You don't normally go from no snow to arctic level blizzard overnight. Normally, least in my experience the cold that accompanies snow is not normally sub-zero kill people overnight kind. You get down to about 0 F and it really doesn't snow. As long as they were sheltered from the wind chill they should have been fine.

I looked it up and Alexandria, VA has an average snowfall per yer of 25". That kind of storm would not be even close to normal.

I also would have expected the walkers to have been slowed quite a bit.

The blurb for the ep does mention a "freak" blizzard. But then the closest I get to snow in winter is a slushy from the convenience store.

I did like the frozen walkers, especially the one stuck in the pond.

Judith running off like that annoys me. Bloody kids.

But yeah, no cliffhanger there at all. As bad as they want Alpha to be, she's not worse than the Governor or Negan at their peak. I'd like to see Alpha and Negan face off since he doesn't show fear of any kind.

Negan more likely to die from pneumonia being out in that storm without a hat or gloves.

Even without a fire that house would have kept them alive overnight. They could have set out during a much safer daylight.

Also, why was the walker in front of Alexandria frozen to a liquid nitrogen point but the river ones weren't after being under snow?

I live in Virginia.  It rarely snows like that.

Thank you for the confirmation!

Can’t link on my iPhone.  It’s all over the internet.  AMC has greenlit a third WD series for 10 eps starting in 2020.  Ugh.  Add in Ricks movies and the rumor of Maggie movies and this is a royal goat fuck.

The CW strategy seems to be spreading.

I saw this earlier. Did they learn nothing from Disney and Star Wars?

TV is a more passive form of entertainment.  Going to a movie is proactive.  Watching TV can be done at home and somewhat passively while doing other things.  AMC is just filling up hours on their grid.  Seemingly thinking ratings will come with anything branded “Walking Dead”.

I meant more that it is possible to over saturate folks with something they like. I have to think planning more than one movie would be risky until they know how it is received. and if it makes any money.

Nobody in the entertainment field ever gets that message until it’s too late.
