“The Walking Dead”
Season Finale Sunday, April 3 at 9 PM ET/PT on AMC
 
         The season finale, Last Day on Earth, promises to combine the usual emotional and terrifying elements in compelling fashion. Rick and the group must go outside the walls to save one of their own. What they experience on the road will change their lives forever.

        Along with Jeffrey Dean Morgan making his debut as devil Negan, the series has weaved the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive. Stories broken apart and then intersected. The characters have found love and hate, along with peace, conflict, contentment and terror. The question remains…will Daryl survive.

 

The Walking Dead Character Descriptions:
 
RICK (Andrew Licoln) accepts he is a leader.  It’s who he is and how others see him.  He is not demanding it or denying it. He accepts the brutality of the world, and the brutality he has to perpetrate.  He is able to be a father and a friend.
 
DARYL (Norman Reedus) is defined.  He is no longer angry at the loss of the prison. He saved Rick, Carl and Michonne before he knew it was them.  That is proof to himself of his true character.
 
GLENN (Steve Yeun) knows hopeful things can happen.  He found his wife and he helped Tara unconditionally.  With some humanity witnessed within himself, Glenn is able to invest in the notion of a future.
 
MAGGIE (Lauren Cohan) has doubled her faith in people.  She is grounded in the fact that hope is tangible.  She sees there is still beauty in this world.  
 
CARL (Chandler Riggs) has returned to a place of optimism, but not one of innocence.  No longer a child, but still a son, he stands confident beside his father.  He is a vital contributing member within the group.
 
MICHONNE (Danai Gurira) is committed to the group, and is still a force to be reckoned with.  She will not allow the group to disband or be disbanded again by surprise.  She is at the ready, always.
 
CAROL (Melissa McBride) grew to be the protector at all costs over the past seasons.  She didn’t like what she had to do, but understands she had to do it, and no one else.  No pride in what she did, but no regrets.
 
BETH (Emily Kinney) is missing.  She has come to terms with the losses in her life, most recently being her boyfriend Zach and her Dad, the beloved Hershel, and the prison itself.  She is tough.  She lives in the now, having learned many survival skills over the seasons.
 
TYREESE (Chad L. Coleman) was last seen at the grove.  He carried and felt the weight of all the things that happened to him, yet he remained non-judgmental.  He struggles to abide on higher ground while bearing witness to continued human suffering and vast devastation.
 
SASHA (Sonequa Martin-Green) remains strong physically.  She has started a relationship with Bob.  He spoke directly to her fears and that allowed her to trust.  Fostered by Bob, Sasha is encouraged and hopeful amid their grave surroundings.  
 
BOB’s (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) curse has been lifted.  He found a group, and found them again. The core group is still alive despite having taken him in.  He has started a relationship with Sasha.
 
SGT. ABRAHAM FORD (Michaek Cudlitz) is mission oriented.  All he says and does leads in one direction – getting Eugene to D.C., even as they are hostages in a railcar awaiting imminent death.
 
TARA (Alanna Masterson), introduced to the group by Glenn and Maggie, is determined to help them all.   Tara is seeking something more to fight for than mere day-to-day survival.
