Q&A Episode 9.5 “What Comes After”The time has come. Are we ready? Big thanks to our fantastic source! PLEASE be mindful about sharing spoilers. Posting this on social media where unsuspecting fans can stumble across these spoilers is not the place for this information... Just leave it be and stay in your spoiler lane. Here we go!!!1. Heath's RV was spotted during filming of this episode. Will we see it and/or get a reference to Heath this episode?There's no mention of Heath.EDIT: We will actually see the RV. Jadis is driving it in the beginning, but it breaks down and she abandons it.2. What happens with Maggie & Negan?It's straight from the recent comics. Michonne allows Maggie to enter Negan's cell & Maggie is prepared to kill him. Negan isn't surprised and says he can't believe she waited this long. He gets on his knees and tells her to kill him, which surprises Maggie. He finally starts begging her to kill him, and when she asks why, he says so he can be with his wife. Maggie finally decides leaving him alive and suffering is a better punishment.3. Which previous TWD characters will we see?Shane, Hershel, and Sasha.4. Can you describe Rick’s interactions with the characters from the past? At least one of them?The scene with Hershel is back at his farm. Rick apologizes for what happened to him, Beth, and Glenn and also for what he put Maggie through. Rick then says he's looking for his family. Hershel says that Rick's family isn't here. Then he tells Rick to wake up. Rick says the same thing to the other characters - that he's looking for his family. But he's told they aren't there. We are meant to assume he means his Lori and Carl family. But we realize that he is referring to his Michonne, Judith and the rest of the group family, and that's why Hershel said they weren't there.The one with Shane was back at the scene where Rick was shot in the pilot episode. Shane is just being a dick, asking how his daughter's doing, etc. Shane then confesses that he's an asshole, but he had hoped some of it rubbed off on Rick, if only to harden him. Then Shane starts yelling that Rick needs to do what needs to be done. (So cryptic. Bet Gimple wrote that part.)5. Does the bridge hold?Yes. Rick finally remembers what Daryl told him and leads the herd back to the camp (which has been vacated) with the hope the bridge will collapse. It doesn't.6. How does Rick exit the show?When the bridge holds, Rick notices a case of dynamite on the bridge. By this time, Maggie, Michonne, Carol, and several others arrive to help, but Rick thinks they're a delusion since he had a hallucination about them earlier. Rick fires a gunshot at the case of dynamite, and the bridge goes up in a fireball, while everyone looks on in horror.7. How does the episode end?It ends with Jadis finding Rick near the bridge after the explosion, and she takes takes him with her on the helicopter.8. Do we learn anything else about the helicopter people? What A and B mean?No, not really. Jadis tells the guy on the radio something along the lines of, “I have a live one.” She might have also called Rick an A.EDIT: Jadis actually tells the helicopter people that Rick is a B and asks if they have a deal. Then the helicopter lowers to the ground. So Rick is no longer an A, he’s a B? Hmmmm9. Anything else you want to share with us about it?Massive time jump at the very end. Magna and her crew are introduced, and they are saved from a herd by a stranger. That stranger is revealed to be Judith Grimes (now around 10 years old), toting a shotgun and wearing Carl's hat.
OK so The Spoiling Dead Fans Army Facebook group has put up some info about Rick’s last episode. I have always said I was ride or die with TWD, despite the tremendous shitshow that it is now. I need to see how this all plays out, but it’s looking like I’m going to have my Sunday evenings free once again.
Here’s the goods!!
Does Rick Die?NOOOOOO!! HE LIVES!!!!! He will experience another close call on the bridge and everyone will believe he’s dead. However, we’ll learn that he actually survives and Jadis calls in the helicopter to take him UP UP UP far far away...
Btw @Hatorian you look nothing like I pictured you! Not that I can say how I pictured you... but not like that. You’re much younger looking and bigger than I pictured. <span></span>
