    I'm a LOT more interested in watching going forward without Madison. She was never my favorite character, unfortunately.

    Da boogie...
    Weird title especially since someone is gone!

    I thought the build up to this was done very well and really liked this episode.

    I liked Madison, but her arc is done and glad to see new faces. TWD should take a page from this show.

    I guess it's Alicia and Strand only ones left from the original cast?

    Not original cast, but whatever happened to Alex? The woman from the web-series played by Michelle Ang, who crossed over into the main series for a while in Season 2 then just disappeared? She was a strange one...she seemed to know a lot about what was going on, and was poised to be an important part of the show...until she wasn't.

    I was initially disappointed by the time jump because I actually thought the ending of season 3 had good potential - all the characters were blown up and separated - how would the reunite, where would they end up, what other groups would each of them encounter, etc. I figured the first half of this season would be separate stories working toward a merge, then they'd find each other in episode 8, etc. I was ok with it.

    That said, I didn't mine this current batch, but it basically just makes the show TWD: take 2. Same exact concept, same timeline... What made FTWD interesting was the exploration of the early days - take that away and it's a show about a group of survivors moving from place to place trying to find a home, finding a home, fighting some other group that wants to take it, rinse and repeat. This batch of eps marked a big shift so it was interesting to watch, but I wonder what the show can do now to set itself apart.

    I'm surprised they killed of Madison - it's so rare these days for a major cast member to get killed without months of hype behind "someone" dying in the episode. They did a good job of keeping it quiet. I was surprsied to read that it was not her decision, and the new showrunners decided to kill her off. Thought for sure maybe the actress wanted to move on (which was the case with Frank Dillane).... but nope. Very interesting.

    That said, I think I have fatigue with this franchise. I don't think TWD can do anything to keep me interested in it at this point unless they do some kind of civil war to close out the show. There's no threat they can introduce that will be different from what's been done, and now I feel like FTWD is in the same boat.

    What did I miss? Why was Alicia so insistent that June/Naomi/Laura had killed Madison?

    I think she thought Naomi was with the "vultures" all along, and spied for them while staying in the stadium...thus helping them pull of their attack, etc.

    Just finished watching. Felt like a soap opera. I was waiting for Pet Clark to sing "You and me against the world." Camera lady getting old. Coming real close to deleting 1P.

    I actually find this more interesting than TWD at this point. Maybe it’s just because I’m up to date on this one while I’m 2 seasons behind on TWD and don’t have any desire to put in the effort to catch up. I hate to see Madison go but so far I like the new characters so I’m sure I’ll stick around for a little longer. Also her character will probably be around for a few more episodes, the way Nick is still there for the before parts.

    Just got around to watching the last couple of episodes. Overall I liked this season better than any other except season 1. And I agree with those who like this better than TWD.

    That said, a couple of thoughts sprang to mind.

    First, I think the Vultures storyline waa basically one huge plot hole. The idea is that they go from settlement to settlement and demand each one's supplies, with an offer for the settlers to join the Vultures if they do. If they refuse, then the Vultures simply wait them out until the community eventually fails and gives up/leaves, and then the Vultures swoop in and take what supplies are left.

    But what's ever going to be left by the time a settlement fails? They basically wait around for the settlement to run out of supplies so they can take what is left which is invariably going to be practically nothing. Not a workable business model imo.

    Secondly, I was really surprised they killed off Madison this season. The actor who played Nick, Frank Dillane, informed them before this season began shooting that he wanted to leave the show, but according to Kim Dickens she was heartbroken when they told her that she was going to be killed off. I would have thought that the unexpected news of Dillane's departure would have had them reconsider killing off Madison at least for awhile, and that instead they would have made Nick's death the focus of the season.

    Well - I finally got around to watching the last 2 episodes and - geez. That was one annoying storytelling device to make us wait until the last 8 minutes to find out what happened in the stadium.

    When Madison met Al and told her story, I couldn't even tell if that was before or after the stadium was gone.

    Interesting to read that Kim Dickens was heartbroken to learn she would be killed off cos' without knowing that - I wasn't 100% sure she was dead the way they shot it. I think the whole thing was an experiment on how to get rid of Andy Lincoln :)
