If you came looking for a major death in the season 5 finale of The Walking Dead
, you might be unsatisfied with how the 90-minute episode plays out. Sure, there's plenty of blood, guts and death.
But it's also an episode all about forgiveness and redemption. So many people seek suicide, so many people seek murder; and while there's an important murder, there's a sense of hope among the bloodshed. It's a satisfying finale if you like the ones that are less about gut-wrenching cliffhangers and more about wrapping up the theme of the season, while still planting the seeds for the enemies the group will face next season.
