So, I’ve had a couple days to let Rick Grimes last episode on TWD to digest…sort of. The episode didn’t end as I expected, which was a nice change, but it leaves a buttload of questions in its wake.
After the episode, I read Andrew Lincoln WASN’T done with Rick as he’d been broadcasting on the con circuit and interviews to spend more time with his fam. OK, what? OK, Rick does die as everybody does when they leave the show. I can live with that. It was definitely a cliffhanger going into that commercial break. Yeah, Joey and I were crying…damn, Daryl and Michonne for breaking down.
Naw, over the next few years, I’m assuming, starting next year, AMC Films, Andrew Lincoln, and Scott M. Gimple, who essentially runs TWD, are going to develop three Rick Grime-centric TV flicks. Hmmm, blows the whole “wanting to be with fam” bit to hell. So, he’s dicking his fam for real as well as on TV…hmmm.
The epilogue of the episode had a six-year jump, where we see Judith, Rick’s daughter, taking up his mantle. Joey hated this part. Honestly, it smacked of the last season of Ghost Whisperer back in the day. Then, they had a commercial break during an episode and three years’d passed. The series was cancelled that year.
I’m curious to see where they go from Rick. If these Rick-centric TV movies come to pass, I’ll be on board to at least what happened to the man since, in all honestly, he should’ve checked out.
We’ll have to see.
Be good to each other.
