Robert Kirkman’s The Ending to AMC’s The Walking Dead

AMC The Walking Dead Finale

Robert Kirkman is a pretty classy individual whom wrote a comic novel that interconnected deep human behavioral and psychosocial dynamics within an ever growing post-apocalyptic world. He never intentionally planned for such a progression of characters as he never imagined just how popular his comic would become. After upwards of 32 million fans and 5 beautifully written episodes, Kirkman, has come up with an idea of how the television series would finally come to a screeching halt. Kirkman, whom is playing a chess match (far ahead of everyone else)… with himself, is going after an idea that for some reason has eluded many others.

For example, the classic George Romero zombie movies like Night of the Living Dead never really answer the age old post-apocalyptic question. What happens after? Like in George Romero and other zombified movies, there seems to never fully be an answer. It is more of a cop out to say the least. Many other movies including Zombieland (not the greatest example) and Dawn of the Dead leave the audience reeling. Robert Kirkman wants to change this as he stated,

“The goal… I hope ‘The Walking Dead’ goes on long enough that at the end, everyone is like, ‘Good thing we took care of those zombies!”

Although this is something no real director or writer has overcome or tried to present to its viewers, Kirkman explained that above all else, The Walking Dead is about overcoming these insurmountable odds. While the television show is not coming to an end any time soon as execs have made it clear that this series will run for 50 seasons, the result thought process must be made.

When I write articles about The Walking Dead (as horribly written as they sometimes may be), I look into the psychosocial and human behavioralistic aspects of the show. Human behavior and personality bleeds differently. It bleeds even more so differently in an animalistic sense, when Darwinism (Survival of the Fittest) plays a role. This television series is being begged to be viewed in this light. It might force us to look deep within ourselves and help determine just what type of personality I am. How can I best help the initiative? In any regard, Robert Kirkman finishes by saying,

“People talk about how ‘The Walking Dead’ is bleak, and if you take a certain cross-section of the story, then yeah. Horrible. People have their loved ones eaten and they have a horrible time. But I see the story from beginning to end, over many many years about humanity overcoming this insurmountable apocalyptic situation.”

The Walking Dead Season 6 starts in mid-October with no ending in sight.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Midseason Finale – What We Read, Shocked Us!

What I learned about what was to come for the walking dead season 5 prior to the airing, utterly left me stunned. The AMC television show, “The Walking Dead, has become a series masterpiece reaching as high as 30 million viewers.

The show is a media phenomena that defies what we know about viewer interest. That being said, what has made the show a hit success comes down to a science: 1) Lots of gore; 2) Impressive casting; and 3) Stunning story line that implements human behavior and personality.

The creator, Robert Kirkman is known for his writing antics, placing everything on the edge, pushing the boundaries of comic and television lines. In order to be successful, one needs to be willing to step out of the comfort zone and press notions that rarely are brought to light.



 

This being said, many aspects of this season has already pushed viewers to their limits including the consumption of human flesh (cannibalism), but where does it end? The last episode, we come to understand that the group continues to show their humanity, but in the end, doesn’t work out for them. As a result, it puts many people in bad situations and leads them into arena that ultimately can get them killed.

Now, if you have made it this far in reading this post, you are at that moment where you are wondering where the headline comes into play. You are sort of annoyed and on the verge of pissed. But the simple fact is this post is supposed to gain awareness for what the television has in stored. Someone is going to die that is relatively important to us while leaving us questioning the outcome of others. Think back at what has happened so far. Look at the sneak peek video. What does all of this have in common and tell us about what the mid-season finale should present? As we know, things never totally go the way Rick plans and it is too soon for the group to remove themselves from the present situation and continue on their merry way.

Giving away the ending is something that I have been known for, but rather not kill the interest and anticipation. All I will reveal is that “weakness has been revealed and a newer threat is about to rear its ugly head.”

The Walking Dead Season 2 Games Finale – Clementine’s “No Going Back”

Season 2 of the walking dead video games finally comes to an end, but not without an awesome 5 minute trailer. It seems that telltale is never really going to leave Season 2 behind, but the good thing is that they have signed for a season 3 already. Overkill has won the coveted title for this 3rd season. Like stated in an earlier article, the “No Going Back” episode exposes the main character, “Clementine” with more responsibility. The question is, will she be able to handle it?

The atmosphere of this game places not only the player, but the onlookers in suspense. With winter setting in, Clementine’s time for looking for food and shelter diminishes. With this increased anxiety trying to sustain not just her but her child, your actions will decide her fate. The real question is, how will you handle the pressure of saving two innocent characters in the harshness of the walking dead.


 

Death of Glenn? Could this finally be… Speculations

Although it has been speculating across the interwebs, it seems that there is a lot of controversy over what might happen to Glenn. Many reporters stationed outside the hit television series camping grounds saw some interesting viewage of the possible death of a very important character. Many are stating that this star is none other than Glenn. There seems to be a lot of uproar and shock over this being a possibility.

Whether the resultant comes to be the actual death of Glenn, he will be sorely missed. But everything in the past season has led up to this point, either Maggie or Glenn was going to come to an end. The foreshadowing that echoed the most was the burning of Maggie’s portrait. From that point on it was pretty clear that one of the two was going to die in the oncoming season.


While this is hard to say, the shows premise is the apocalypse and anything can happen. We can’t live in a television show world where all the main characters survive through the harshest landscape and existence known to man, it just doesn’t work that way. Honestly, this won’t be the last time we see one of them. To help determine whom will most likely be dying, you can look at IMDB. Below is what Steven Yeun is up to:

Chew (Video) (filming)
Tony Chu (2014)

He is shooting another film, could this mean that he is indeed leaving the cast? It could be but it is known the actors and actresses work hard on several productions at once so this isn’t necessarily an indicator. Something to watch out for.
