Rick Grimes makes a final stop at AMC The Walking Dead

Spoiler Alert: This story contains important details from Sunday's episode "The Walking Dead."

The episode of "The Walking Dead" on Sunday was characterized by Rick Grimes's latest episode. "By the end, however, the top thriller action thriller man seems to be 180 degrees from the title of the show: but he is not dead.

What does this mean for Rick, since it is the last episode of the character series and the actress playing it, Andrew Lincoln, is no guess. But a series of television films will continue its story, AMC said on Sunday. But we will get to that.

At the end of last week's episode, the audience saw Rick bent over bars of a cement floor, after the terrified horse threw him like a cluster of walkers approached. But there was no way that Rick was going to end up like a rabbit zombie, which would be a reckless fall for the hero of the footballer.

As the Sunday episode opens, Rick returns to the hospital room where the series began. It is clear that he is in a hallucinatory state as he speaks to his previous self, who had woken up a coma to find the revelation of the zombie.

Back in the real world, the conceived legislator pulls a MacGyver, dropping his belt over another piece of weaponry and pulling himself from where he was nailed. He escapes from the suddenly calm horse and, in a truly unselfish form, attempts to lead the hordes of walkers from the camps of his companions, even when he bleeds richly.

At the same time, Jadis Bridge (Pollyanna MacIntosh) – who abandoned her alter ego Anne – tries to escape from Seth Gilliam, Rick and other survivors, since secret collaboration with a mysterious team holding a helicopter I'm discovered.

He has made an agreement for the exhaust. must surrender a survivor, although he can not take on Gabriel, with whom he has developed an emotional and romantic bond. The back story of Jadis will play an important role later in the episode. (There's also a major story of Negan that beats Michonne against Maggie, but Rick's fate is the main event.)

The action turns back to the central scene as Rick fades, his blood coloring his horse's white coat, begins to hallucinate again, taking long-time fans back to unforgettable moments and characters. In an exciting retrospect, viewers see Rick in a famous shot from the first season in which a horse rides on a highway outside Atlanta, with thousands of strollers in the picture.

Rick comes again – he jumps between consciousness and the loss of consciousness – in time to escape the scandalous masses, resorting to an abandoned house where he clings the cloth to a bandage on his side. It is drifting. During his illusion, he runs into a well-known face, former collaborator Sheriff Shane (Jon Bernthal), who became an opponent who was killed by Rick back in season 2.

When Rick says he is looking for his family, Shane says he could be the same, since Rick has long believed that Judith's daughter is Shane's child from a relationship she started with Rick's husband, Lori, when they thought he was dead.

Suddenly, Rick revives from his ecstasy as a walker is ready to bite him. She escapes from the house. The horse, of course, stands there. As Rick leads, he goes back and finds himself on a beautiful farm with old Hershel, her father Maggie and a wise mentor for Rick. As Rick explains he needs to find his family, Hershel (Scott Wilson, who died in early October) consciously advises him not warning him to wake up – because the zombies are approaching!

In his next illusion, Rick returns to the first hospital, walking through the doors that were blocked to hold the walkers. It enters a region that has been scattered with bodies, including those seen from behind like Carl's son and daughter Hershel, Beth, both of whom died earlier in the series. Suddenly, another dead survivor, Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green, who may be touching "Star Trek: Discovery") goes up and tells an upset Rick that everything is all right than the bodies.

"You did your role, as did I. They gave us the power we needed to do what we had to do for others, the others draw strength from us, we change each other, we help each other, we improve it ourselves and it never ends, "he says.

Then Sasha says Rick is lying to wake up, just as he actually falls from his horse. He fights a few hikers and then heads toward the bridge that had been focused on both repair during the early episodes of this season.

When he arrives at the bridge, he imagines that his allies – Daryl, Carol, Eugene and his beloved companion, Michonne – are at his disposal but are not really there. It is revived again, but the hope that the bridge can collapse under the horde's weight is not realized.

Zombie approaches, like Daryl and others – this time for real – but can not save Rick. A walker hits a dynamite on the bridge and Rick chooses his final choice. Destroy the explosives, blow up many zombies – and obviously himself – as other walkers fall into the river.

Michonne shouts silently as Maggie and Carol try to comfort her. A frustrated Daryl is getting away.

The scene goes to Jadis, who still waits for her evacuation as she sees the dead zombies floating downstream before seeing Rick barely on the shore. The helicopter, observed in a previous episode, throws them away. "You'll be fine," says Jadis to Rick, who is on a stretcher. "I will save you".

The action is cut into a new scene where the unknown are struggling to prevent another group of walkers who enjoy the maximum amount of their screen in the ages this season. An invisible sniper shoots some walkers, allowing people to escape.

The shooter is Ric's daughter, Judith, but he is no longer a child. She is at least a few years old, a young authority wearing a dad's hat, her brother's favorite weaponry, a weapon armed, a reminder to her father and a katana sword, the symbol of Michonne, who became his stepmother.

It's the future. And Rick is not there anymore. But the first of the new films will "explore the story of where Rick gets and what he is doing in a new corner of the zombie revelation."

In an excerpt accompanying the announcement of the films, Lincoln said: "It's not the beginning of the end, it's the end of the beginning. And I like the idea of ​​talking about a bigger story, maybe a kind of broader view. Perhaps it is the beginning of a longer story. "

AMC also says that the universe "The Walking Dead" will be further expanded with other specials, series, movies and digital content.
