Gilbert Speaks on The Walking Dead S10 Finale

7 Oct

All good things come to those who wait in a pandemic isolation mode. Yes, like most of my fellow TWD fans that are trapped inside a time loop with no escape until the election…we were left to wonder what had happened to our favorite Team. The wait was well worth it, and we were awarded a few surprises.

A Certain Doom

There was a lot to worry about all season especially with the writers messing with our Ninja Queen, Carol. Don’t mess with Carol! She is a strong woman and we don’t break easily.

Team Hillside, Team Alexandria, and Team Oceanside have their plans, but so does Beta. The children must be protected. I love how Daryl has taken the role of father over Little Kick-ass Judith and her little brother. You fight harder when you have children to protect.  Team Daryl, having taken a gore and guts bath, slowly make their way through the horde…but the Whisperers are in that horde. Beatrice has the backpack with the Radio Shack electrical equipment that is needed to lure the horde away.

Lydia and Negan

We have been given glimpses of what Negan was like before the apocalypse, but the memory of his bat cutting down Glenn and Abraham still stings. Even if I don’t usually believe that people can change their ways, I think Negan has turn away from the Dark Force because of two young girls.

Negan has always had a soft spot for Judith because she is smart and sassy, and she stands up to him. Judith is viewed as a pintsized fellow warrior. Lydia is different. She is vulnerable, abused, and not welcomed by the others because of Alpha. Negan is protective of Lydia. Negan is the father figure who gives Lydia Alpha’s face mask. Lydia and Carol are a different matter. Carol is unwilling to open her heart to the girl because of what Alpha did to her family…but Lydia’s need for forgiveness, and maybe a mother figure, is putting chinks in Carol’s titanium armor. Carol tells Lydia that the girl must “Find her own way.”

Rock On

Lydia is a big help to the Team archers as she points out the hidden Whisperers among the horde. As each Whisperer is shot down, the horde does the good old fashion gore and guts buffet…which we haven’t seen in a long time. If you have walkers…you need the gore. Beta is also a good leader and pulls his people in a closer circle which causes poor Beatrice from Oceanside to get killed. Carol, at first, keeps moving but then returns for the backpack. Lydia, wearing Alpha’s mask comes to the rescue.

Backpack rescued, Team Daryl is able to lead the horde away from Team Gabe and towards a cliff with the song Bringing Down the House…but rascally Beta soon puts a stop to that. The decision is made for Carol and Lydia to tag lead the walkers to the cliff, while Daryl and Negan go after Beta and his people.

Conclusion

There were many surprises: Lydia saving Carol before she jumped. I think Carol is going to adopt Lydia. Carol needs to teach Lydia how to be a warrior, and Lydia needs to teach Carol how to open her heart and forgive.

Negan and Daryl worked as a tag team in bringing down Beta. Although Negan was surprised with Beta’s identity, Daryl couldn’t give a damn. Beta actually got what he always wanted. He happily lived among the walkers, and now, he is one.

Gabe is rescued from Whisperers by Maggie, and her very own masked hooded Ninja. Who is this stranger? He has the same moves as our beloved

I saved the best for last. Connie is alive and meets Virgil. Team Eugene accompanied by Princess are still on their search for Eugene’s true love, Stephanie…what they encounter are storm troopers right out of Star Wars. Are they part of the group that Jadis belongs to? Is Rick there? Who is that masked man with Maggie? I can’t wait for the next season.

Welcome back my little walker snacks. A lot has happened in the real world since we last left Team Carol in a fine mess. Traitors are protected, criminals are pardoned, the poor get poorer, and babies are still kept in cages…but at least we’re not dealing with the zombie virus…oh wait a minute…we might be with this coronavirus. This week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” reminds us that sometimes life imitates art, and that can be more frightening than what our favorite walker fighters are dealing with. Continue reading
