It’s no secret his time in the 8 year series was coming to a close, but that doesn’t make the blow any softer. I am typing this immediately after watching the episode. I have not given myself time to process, think or evaluate things so please mind the swearing, rapid bouncing around & lack of sense it’ll make..
Before reading any further I will warn you now that this post contains content that you may find graphic, upsetting or disturbing. It also contains a lot of spoilers from the most recent WD episode. Read with caution. You’ve been warned.
Guess they really stuck it to him, ehehehe.
I’m still healing my wounds from the loss of our dearest Carl, as much as I hated him, I’d watched him blossom from irritating kid to irritating adult. ❤️ But tonight I sat with my box of tissues at the side, snuggled under a blanket & crying as soon as the credits began. Where the fuck do I start? (Why the feck do I watch a show that kills me so much? 8 damn years of loyalty and this is how you repay me?!)
Okay so we all knew he was going to die, rumours swirled around how. We all expected a huge dramatic death scene right? Wrong. The entire episode built up this energy of determination and struggle. Watching Rick fight through the roads whilst bleeding to death, luckily waking up every time danger was near. One thing that ruined this atmosphere for me was the horse. The horse reared up and caused this fucking problem because of the zombies in the first place, but now it casually hangs around whilst a hoard of them approach, just to see him to safety? I think women want a man as loyal as that damn horse. Anyway; I was holding my breath every time he blacked out and went into a vision.
The visions. Now they were something beautiful weren’t they? How lovely was it to see Hershel (RIP Scott Wilson) again, as well as the beautiful Sasha. I’m not mad about these “time fillers”, I loved being able to see Rick make peace with them and slowly accept what was happening. I would of loved to have seen him see Lori or Coraaaaal though.
Okay moving on, let’s just jump straight into the bridge. Oh my god, seeing the team running to help him, my damn eyes were leaking! My heart was pounding and I was sobbing loudly into my blanket. As soon as I saw those boxes on the bridge I knew they were gonna contain explosives! And bam…. I was right. Bang, off they went. My heart leapt out of my chest and the tears were streaming down my face like a faucet. Fuck sake Rick!!
The tears on everyone’s faces said it all, I can’t imagine how hard filming that episode must of been. My first though was “WHAT ABOUT JUDITH”. That girl has been through it all. I wanna say though, I was loving the burning zombies flocking to the water like lemmings, so satisfying!
Jadis. Jadis. Jadis. What are you playing at. I’ve never liked her character and found her creepy from the start. However… has she just saved Ricks life? If that’s the case I wanna say a big fuck you to the directors and producers for having me in tears for an entire episode (a week previous) just to have him carted off in a helicopter 😭 Will he survive? Will we see him in a few seasons times?
If you haven’t heard there have been 3 big budget walking dead movies confirmed containing Andrew Lincoln, but not Judith 👀 This means we will still hold onto our darling Rick on the big screen! But will he return after filming?! 🤔 God DAMMIT.
Before I move onto the jump forward episode I wanna take this time to thank The Walking Dead team for 8 years of heartbreak & anxiety.
Right, now. Can we please talk about how fecking cool Judith is?!
She looks amazing! I am so excited to learn about what a rough tough little character she has been taught to be. The amount of loss she experienced and the strong females she grown up around! But ohhhhh the heart ache as soon as she picked the hat up 😭 SO EXCITED. Also 10/10 to Carol who’s hair makes her look like a whimsical night elf. I love it!
I’m not going to read this post back and check for errors because I just can’t bring myself to re read the pain.
What did you think? How did the ending make you feel? Are you excited for the new introduction of characters?
In the next few weeks I’m going to hopefully get a top 5 walking dead deaths post up. (Carl forever)
Thanks for listen to me make zero sense about something I’m passionate for 😍
All my love, Starshiptrooper x
