It finally happened. The Walking Dead Season 10 episode 16 finally aired!! We finally have the finale of the season so now we can talk about it! There was plenty going on in that final hour. We had…
MAGGIE and MASKED MEN and SOLDIERS! OH MY!
Not only did we have all these 3 revelations but we also had the conclusion to the Whisperer War. We will definitely not be seeing the Whisperers in future seasons.
Jon and I talk about the finale episode and go into details about how it played out and what this might mean for Season 11. We then conclude the podcast with a recap of the “Spoil The Season” where I compare the spoilers I gave at the start of the Mid-Season Premier based on the comic compares to the end of the actual season.
It is October, time for playoff baseball, Halloween decorations to be in stores and another season of The Walking Dead on AMC.
The Season 10 premier was on October 6th and normally, we would do a review podcast on the premier episode a week later but since the Joker movie came out the same time, we decided to wait a week and review 2 episodes!
In episode 1, the show stars with several members of the Alexandria coalition on the beach of Oceanside using shields and spears to fight walkers. Could they be training for something else…
There was also a satellite that came crashing down into the woods on the Whisperers side of the border. The Coalition decided that it was more important to break the truce and cross the boarder to put out the fire than maintain detente. Will Eugene be able to use that satellite for anything? Jon has some theories.
In episode 2, we learn the origin of Alpha and Beta. It is the beginnings of the Whisperers and how they form their dogma. Jon goes over his theory of the difference of having a name, no name and a Greco-Roman name in the Whisperers culture.
We end the podcast on a feature that has become very popular on the CM Podcast – Jim Spoils the Season segment.
That’s right, I will spoil the rest of the season for you – well just up to the mid-season finale. How do I do this? The show follows the story line from the comic. The comic is about 4 years ahead of the show. I have read the comic but Jon has not. I make some guesses based on the comic and we will review how accurate I was at the mid-season finale.
Here is a page from the comic that I reference in the podcast…
Oh, that Negan. He should write inspirational posters that have kittens on them. I also explain who the young boy is on this page. Will he make an appearance on the show? Maybe…
Thanks for listening and we will see you in seven.
Mid Season 9 of the Walking Dead was one of the more impactful seasons for Jon and myself. We are introduced to a new danger in the world named The Whisperers who are lead by the demented Alpha. We learn why Michonne is wary of strangers and how she go her scar. We learn about Lydia, the daughter of Alpha and find out if she will be friend or foe to the new alliance of Alexandria, Hilltop and The Kingdom. And the final question is answered: Can we start to trust Negan?
I ask Jon some question about the show like: What does he think about Alpha, Beta and The Whisperers? Jon goes into an eloquent discussion about the new characters and how he feels they came to exist and how dangerous they can be to everyone.
We talk about some other plot points that happened through the season and the shocking event that happened in the penultimate episode. Jon and I talk about who was lost and how impactful it will be in the show and it’s characters.
We then end the podcast with a review of spoilers that I gave in Podcast 195 and how accurate the comic is compared to the show. It is still a very accurate guide on the events that unfolded.
