And so, now that we’ve reach the end of Season 9A, it’s time to evaluate the half season as a whole. Unquestionably this half season is the best run of 8 episodes since......well I can’t actually remember the last half season that had a more than 4 good episodes in it but it’s definitely been a long time. Despite a years long campaign by AMC, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero, and almost every long term writer on this show to burn this show to the ground in a fire of its own mediocrity; it seems that Angela Kang was able to pull TWD back from the brink of probable cancellation to a C+ trending to B- show with a few TV movies in the works, which is quite an accomplishment given that it’s lost most of its lead actors. So congratulations Ms. Kang, fuck you Gimple, and I’m still keeping my eye on you AMC because you have an unfortunate tendency to fire showrunners whenever they prove themselves to be competent. I’ll have to decide on how to orient the threads going forward but they will be back in some fashion next half season so see you all again next year!
