SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale Episode 516 “Conquer.”
AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 5 Finale — Episode 516 “Conquer” — aired on Sunday night and thankfully, we didn’t get the usual heartbreaking shockers that typically accompany these final episodes. Instead, we got, what I felt was, a perfect ending to a great season, especially these last few episodes.
The network has released the “most talked about scene” from the episode, which centered on the town meeting, where Rick’s fate was to be decided. AMC has also released two behind-the-scenes featurettes — one is a 3-minute “Making of” featurette on the booby trap scene, while the other is a 5 1/2-minute “Inside Look” at what was going on at the Alexandria Safe Zone, as well as what Daryl and Aaron came up against on the outside.
Daryl experiences trouble on a run while Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders in Alexandria, where trouble is creeping into the gates.
The Walking Dead, which stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, and more, airs on AMC on Sunday nights at 9/8c, followed by the one-hour post-live show Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick. Season 6 premieres in October 2015.
The Walking Dead Season 5 Part 2 Synopsis
After the tragic events of the mid-season finale — as well as losing the possibility of a cure in Washington, DC — Rick Grimes’ band of survivors find themselves on the road, surviving day to day and trying to hold on to their shredded humanity and dwindling hope.
Stripped of security and without a direction for the future, some of the group near their breaking point, some find themselves hardened and cold and some just try to grasp on to what little they have left.
Though they are still breathing, the line between Rick’s group and the dead is starting to blur.
Could there be anything at this point that brings them back to life?
