The four small figures in Sam's (Major Dodson) room at the beginning are from Robert Kirkman's 'Invincible' comic. See more »


Rick doesn't need to endanger the others by taking them through the horde. They could have simply gone out the back of the house and climbed the wall right behind (like Carl had been doing). Any walker stragglers on the outside could be dealt with by Michonne. See more »

Mediocre from Start to Finish
30 November 2015 | by SpoodermanDerpSee all my reviews

"Start to Finish"is the mid season finale we've all been waiting for, the fall of Alexandria. Yet as huge as the scale might've felt at the start, it all falls and ends up in mediocrity till the finish.

Although the plot and what happened in the last episode surely should make this into a riveting and exciting episode, it doesn't really deliver as much. We've seen the prison fall, we've seen Terminus fall, this isn't much different. But what makes it different is that literally nothing happens that would make you jump your seat or make your heart pumping, it's all at the start when Alexandria does in fact fall, after that were treated to some conclusions with some of the story lines developed in the season so far (excluding Daryl, Abraham and Sasha). The tension between Carl and Ron seemed forced and out of place, the tension between Morgan and Carol was great in terms of showing how different and completely opposite the ideals of the two were. However everything else, it all just falls flat. It felt like the episode was just a minor wound to the group, Alexandria is destroyed yes we know, but it feels like it isn't and that the audience obviously knows that they will somehow get back especially with Rick's new leadership and they even made that clear in the episode. At the end of the episode, we got nothing, we perfectly know what HAS and WILL happen to each character except for maybe a few. There was a lot they could've improved on like giving us an ending that would leave us wanting for more, or keeping the tension established right from the start.

Verdict: 7.4/10
