Part of me can’t believe that another season of the Walking Dead is over. There’s some relief with this ending because we know we’re getting a season 8. I really do think that season 8 could be a final one. I don’t really expect it to be, but I hope it’s considered because it would make a fantastic ending. Negan is probably the worst they’ve ever faced and we’ve got popular characters from the comics like King Ezekiel. Season 8 would be plenty of time to have this war against Negan (and most likely defeat him), introduce any other characters, and even plots, that they want to explore, and still have time to wrap up the whole show.
With Maggie’s speech at the end of the of episode it really felt like the beginning of the end, but I am getting a little ahead of myself, so let’s stop talking about season 8 and focus on this finale, which was actually pretty good! It was by no means perfect, but it was definitely enjoyable.
Season 7 has actually been really good. I would say season 1-3 were the best, season 4 was pretty decent too, during season 5 is where it started to go downhill, and season 6, although it had its good moments, wasn’t the best overall. Season 7 got off to a rocky start with its first episode, but it’s managed to maintain itself ever since.
The interjections from Sasha inside the coffin were just right. They were done often enough and at seemingly regular intervals that you had time to get used to it. At first, I didn’t know what to think of it, but the more I saw them the more I enjoyed them. Seeing Abraham again was nice, although admittedly he did feel a little out of character in the way he spoke at first, but for the most part, I’m going to put that down to the fact that we haven’t seen or heard from him since the first episode of the season.
