Just a fantastic episode, the way a mid or even regular season finale should be. Left me ready for more in the rest of the season to come.
I woke up thinking today was Saturday. Man, I was all messed up this morning.
After I calmed down about the terrible ending, this was also my conclusion. I wonder if the Loper show read my comment here in this thread lol.
I didn't like the ending, it felt cheap but I know why they did it. I'll tell you why they didn't show us who died at the end. It's because they don't know themselves and haven't chosen anyone. That's the shitty irony about this season finale. They said someone dies and they were all sick to their stomachs about it but they all lied. Lauren Cohen (Maggie) in the short interview on the Talking Dead said she didn't know who got killed and then later on in the show Chandler Riggs (Carl) tweets that he's read the script 6 months ago and still doesn't know who died. So in the end, no one knows who died, not us, not the characters not even the writers know because no one has actually died yet and no one has been picked to die.
I also think it cheapens the death. If we open up season 7 with the death scene most people will have the reaction of "Oh, that's who they killed." and just continue on with the show. How boring instead of having 7 months of freaking out about who died and how are they going to get along without that person, we get nothing.
Also, they might open season seven with Morgan and Carol and we learn more about the Kingdom and we might not know who died until episode 2 or 3 of next season. Just like they did with Glenn crawling under the dumpster and not knowing for a couple episodes.
