The Walking Dead Season 5 finale is set to be huge, and could be the biggest finale the hit AMC zombie apocalypse series has seen yet. According to ComicBook.com, the Season 5 finale has officially been extended by half an hour, which means the show will run 90 minutes long.
The report suggests that the only reason for having an extended season finale is because the plot of the episode will be too good to pack in to only one hour, which means fans are in for an amazing episode when the finale airs in March.
"The episode will directed by executive producer Greg Nicotero. While little is known about the season finale's plot so far, the extended running time seems to imply that its story will be pretty big."Cleveland.com reports that there are many theories about what may happen in The Walking Dead Season 5 finale that would constitute an extended episode. The site suggests that perhaps the comic's big bad, Negan, will show up. Many fans know that in the graphic novels Negan is a monstrous character who ends up killing Glenn with his weapon of choice, a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, which he calls Lucy.
Another possible story line for the finale would be that Morgan finally catches up to Rick and the gang at Alexandria, or wherever they may be by then, and the two have a reunion, or run-in.
Since the episode is extended, fans are already afraid that another beloved character will die. As previously reported by the Inqusitir, The Walking Dead has killed off Bob, Beth, and Tyreese all this season, but it seems only fair to expect another death to come.
Some theories include Glenn, Maggie, and Sasha as the most likely to bite the dust. Rumors have even been flying that a character such as Maggie or Sasha could attempt suicide. However, the only way to find out what will happen is to watch Season 5 until the end, and then brace yourself for what is sure to be the biggest season finale in the show's history, which will air on March 29.
Meanwhile, when we left our favorite group of survivors they had just decided to go with Aaron to Alexandria, and had rolled up on the gates to hear the sounds of people and children playing. Is it all a scheme, or is this a place they can finally live together in some sort of peace? We can't wait to find out.
