Eh I don't have any issues with the last episode, good to see everyone finding their way back to each other, because that device, splitting the groups up, has been used so many times it just comes across as lazy writing. But the "villain", ugh, she's just so annoying, hope they kill her off soon.

one of THE worst episodes ever from Fear...what the hell has happened to this show? Looks like the Gimp has come in and wrecked this one as well.

Looking at the previews for next week, looks like AMC wasn't too worried about spoiling the fact that the entire group gets reunited. Just in time for all of them to head for Alexandria at the end of the finale, and then dhow up on the other show. Ugh.

is this confirmed or just speculation?

Giving Martha a background story didn't make her character suck any less :p

At this point it's just speculation, but the show is heavily leaning into the idea that the end game is Alexandria. After killing off Madison, ratings dropped like a rock and it seems likely that they'll announce the Season 5 will be the final season at some point, IMO.

It's gonna take Morgan a lot longer to get back to Alexandria than it took for him to get to Texas.

the last two episode have been a bit better, but it's mostly because they're jumping around more between plots, and it leaves less time to dwell on the dumb stuff.

Which part?

Did you see the previews?
Yes I saw the previews. I know as far as the plot goes Morgan wants to take the group back to Alexandria but in general has it been confirmed anywhere that this is actually happening, the shows/casts are merging?

so is it me or is FTWD gearing up for the death of Morgan in the season finale next week. just seems like the character wants to die, is willing to sacrifice himself to save everyone... almost seems to simple

I don't know if they'd kill him off after one season....but who knows. This whole back half of the season has been a mess. Another poor episode.

I'm kinda hoping that they do kill him off in a way. While he was an interesting character for awhile.... it sorta got old.

Another season of The Walking Dead franchise ends with a whimper.

This may be Rick's last season on TWD, but it could be his first on the next season of FTWD, joining Morgan and his group!

wasn't impressed with last night's Season finale of FTWD...

hopefully next week when TWD comes back it will be better than the last 2 seasons.

It seems like the past few years of FTWD and TWD finales, I sit there and ask myself "That's it?" Last night was no exception. I think this lady was the worst villain we've had.

Per comicbook.com both Rueben Blades and Daniel Sharman will be returning for season 5 thought it's unclear whether they are in flashbacks, Al's tapes, part of the new story, TWD movie universe, etc.

Also rumors Cudlitz will return in TWD universe movies

It’s part of AMC’s 100 year plan to make money off of zombies.

Thoughts on Dwight joining Fear?
While I still mostly enjoy this show, I really don't care - I think Dwight is an underwhelming, completely forgettable character. I guess AMC is just slowly transitioning FEAR into TWD 2.0?

I think Fear has technically been TWD 2.0 since the third episode of the first season. It was originally supposed to be about the early days of the infection, but they blew through that very quickly.

Trailer for season 5. I do miss the whole Clark family part of the show as I did like to watch their struggle with what was going on, not a huge fan of all the random people they've kind of introduced into the show. It's like what's the point?

You know what it is.




$$$ in AMC's pocket and too much pride to call it quits. Pretty much the only reason this show is still around.

Fear was so good in it's third season, and they trashed the whole show over the fourth. I no longer bother watching either TWD, call it the Gimple effect.

The comic is still great, though!

Hahaha.. "The Gimple Effect". I hear you, I said it ever since Darabont (he was so good) left.. Gimple is such a little weasely p r i c k.. can not stand him. I get the feeling he probably took care of all his boys, saw the show was so successful and wanted to get credit for it, which just ran the show into the ground. I still watch, but man oh man.. let this be a lesson that when something is good and it's working to just leave it alone, and try not to bring all the "Hollywood crew" into the mix so they can destroy it all.

i wouldnt have minded season 4, i was fine with it other than the villain lady. she wasnt intimidating or scary and she had the like slasher film villain ability to always know where they were and what they are doing and just show up, she was really irritating me. i actually liked the early seasons of TWD when they were just wandering around trying to survive and they didnt have some main badguy hassling them and messing with them.
im sort of surprised they didnt just make a spin off where Morgan just wanders around coming in and out of people lives a la the incredible hulk, highway to heaven, route 66, kung fu, etc...

No thoughts on the season premiere? I just watched it last night. Interesting set up. Hope this season is a bit of a bounce back since last season was a bit of a letdown compared to season 3.

I was reading that the people that took Al were associated with the Helicopter people that took Rick to the great dumpster in the sky.


That commercial they keep showing with the bright colors and showy music makes the show look like a total joke. Not sure what they were thinking when they cut that thing together.

I didn't comment on last weeks premier which was horrible and now this past episode was just meh...of course we get no further info on AL this week of the person/ or people who took her. I am interested because of the circle logos / Rick connection. That's about it though. I thought I was watching an episode of Chernobyl last night....except that show was actually really good.

As for that commercial....WTF was that? It look like a bad super hero show that the CW would show or something like that.

wow......just wow 1 bullet, 2 zombies...1 axe = shark has been jumped.

-Alicia runs over board with nails in the road, knows Morgan and others might be coming that way....leaves board with nails in the road...
-back window in vehicle that Dwight is stuck in is blown out, no zombies try to get in that way at all...
-more weather related Zombies...oh a dust storm...haven't used that weather condition yet across either show....
-roof won't support Dwight/John and June, after Dwight and John get down June proceeds to just run the entire length of it with no trouble...
-Dwight's been looking for Sherry for awhile now and when they tell him the people are all dead where that car came from, he NOW wants to kill himself....
-So Morgan says him and Dwight are from the same place...big deal, I honestly can't even remember if those two interacted on the other show or not...no tension here at all
-So the kids are behind these roadblocks/walker heads/walkers tied up thing...yawn

I'm seriously at a loss for words on how dumb this show has become...

My favorite moment last night was when John was telling Dwight how dark and edgy he is for shooting a guy's pinky off, and Dwight's just sitting there keeping his mouth shut about all the f'ed up things he did on The Walking Dead.

I liked seeing Dwight again, he's a good victim then villain then redemption case, and the actor plays him well. But yeah, the splitting bullet was terrible. John's a great character, and I like this peek into his sharpshooting past career, but the writers should not have written in that trick shot :rolleyes:
