None of Rick’s crew died! The writers flipped the script on viewers (including me) who expected someone big to perish during this all-over-the-place season 5 finale.
Overall, the 90 minutes felt a little messy. From a story-telling standpoint, it was tonally up, down and everywhere in between with a half-dozen plots to grapple with. The fact it was longer than normal may have been part of the problem.
