Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” season 10 episode 16: “A Certain Doom”

Happy Friday TV fans! After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 16 season finale, I learned that the way we survive is…together. 

Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 16, “A Certain Doom,” the group faces off against Beta and The Whisperers while dealing with an overwhelming walker horde. Meanwhile, heroes are made and old friends return.

My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 16 season finale are:

5

“This is the only way.”

A plan is quickly hatched to get through the horde of walkers, which means that several of our favorite characters will need to camouflage themselves with skins and blood to get through undetected. The plan is to reach the wagon to lead the horde away, but we witnessed some chilling and intense moments during this scene.

Beatrice draws the short straw and ends up brutally eaten by the horde while Carol lets her die.

It was clear from the start that not everyone would make it, but this moment of hesitation within Carol was an interesting one. She made the conscious decision to turn around and keep walking, giving us an every man for himself approach. This decision makes a lot more sense and provides us with some understanding when we get toward the end of the episode, however.

“It’s okay…”

Maggie is back! After seeing her in the very beginning of the episode, I was wondering when she would show up to save the day. After Gabriel and Judith are trapped, it looked like Gabriel was going to hold the line so that his friends could get to safety.

Gabriel put up a valiant effort, but Maggie and her new masked friend burst through the doors with perfect timing to save the day.

Welcome back Maggie!

So, who is this masked stranger and where did he or she pick up those crazy moves? We’ll have to wait to find out, but I’m actually intrigued.

“I ain’t no hero. You could be.”

We’ve been watching the character growth and transformation of Negan over the seasons and it seems like our anti-hero is embracing this new side of him, but it’s not always easy shedding your previously selfish ways.

We get this epic moment where Negan calls Beta out as a “shithead” so that he is distracted enough for Daryl to put him out of his misery after blinding him.

Only we get this weird moment where Beta actually seems elated to be eaten alive…

I think it’s about time he was defeated…

“It has to be me.”

Lydia really stole the show for me. After having a talk with Carol, she opens up and tries to get Carol to welcome a friendship between them. Lydia clearly states that she is not looking for a new mother, but Carol initially brushes her off and tells her to find her own way.

Later on, the group loses the wagon and decide to lead the walkers off a cliff, but it means someone has to jump first to bring them over the edge.

Carol volunteers as tribute and we get this emotional moment where she stands at the very edge, but Lydia grabs her hand at the last second and Carol finally allows her emotions to run free, embracing her.

It looks like Carol finally wants to live and I have to say that it’s about time. Well done, Lydia!

“We still have things to do here.”

Well, right. This is TWD and we know that we have one more season to wrap things up. At the end of the season finale, we finally get to see Connie and learn that she is alive…although she is pretty beaten up for sure.

Connie needs some assistance, but the person to pick her up is…Virgil. Yep, remember him? We’ll have to see how this unfolds, but I’m happy that Connie is all right for now. We need to see a reunion between her and Daryl as soon as possible!

Meanwhile, we circle back with Eugene and the others, but it doesn’t look like Stephanie hung around. Eugene is ready to keep looking for her, but they are then surrounded by strangers in uniforms who tell them to put their weapons down.

Friends or foes? I’m not sure, but it looks like we have our major set-up ready for the final season.

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on TWD in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 14: “A Sort of Homecoming”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 14, I learned that sometimes you are meant to wind up exactly where you started. So, do you take the fresh start or head back into the heart of unknown destruction?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 14, “A Sort of Homecoming,” Clarke and the others are reunited back on Earth, but not everyone is ready to leave the people of Sanctum behind. Meanwhile, Sheidheda strikes a deal with Bill that endangers Madi and everyone attempts to cope with an unspeakable loss.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 14 are:

5

“I killed him…I had to.”

Clarke doesn’t hold anything back and immediately tells the others that she killed Bellamy. Octavia and Echo tell her that they understand, recognizing that the Bellamy they knew and loved was gone and that the true Bellamy would understand. There is a lot of coping going on in this episode as each character deals with this loss in their own way.

I have to admit that I even shed a tear when we saw Murphy crying, which was extremely emotional for me.

“Welcome home.”

When one door closes, another one opens. At least we finally find out where Gaia is and learn that she is alive and well. Phew!

Gaia fills us in on what we’ve missed and everyone is reunited…at least for now.

3

“We were all Blodreina.”

Being back on Earth proves to be difficult for Octavia. Many of her memories come rushing back from her time as Blodreina and we even see a flashback of Kane. Indra reminds Octavia that they were all Blodreina and explains that they will face her demons together, which was a nice sentiment.

2

“I decided for everyone. That’s what I do.”

Madi is upset with Clarke for killing Bellamy to protect her and Clarke breaks down to her and tries to explain that this is what she does. This is not the first time we have seen Clarke carry the weight of the world on her shoulders to protect her friends.

She makes the hard decisions so that they don’t have to, but this was probably the most difficult one of her life. 

That being said, let’s hope it was worth it…

1

“No one else is dying to save me.”

After making a deal with Bill, Sheidheda is somehow still OK to continue to annoy us and goes after Madi, revealing what he knows about her memories. Clarke realizes that she is in danger, desperately trying to find her before it is too late.

Madi is actually taking a minute to enjoy herself, learning piano from Gabriel, which was a sweet moment.

Unfortunately the moment is short-lived, as Gabriel is stabbed by invisible Sheidheda. Gabriel dies trying to save Madi and Sheidheda manages to go through the anomaly after getting quite the beat down from the incredible Indra and Gaia tag team.

Madi refuses to let anyone else die because of her and uses the knife to transport herself to Bill before Clarke can stop her. Then, we get more visitors and some kind of cave-in like explosion that could potentially trap or endanger Memori…don’t even get me started on that.

We know that Clarke has always been trying to protect her daughter, but Madi is capable of true leadership and strength and perhaps Clarke needs to have faith in her.

Only two episodes left!

May we meet again.

Rest in peace, Gabriel.
