6.5, that's the score on imdb. Not the lowest in this season, because that went to Six Hours for a solid six points. We all knew that this was on the cards, since the AMC announced it a few months ago, but this is Al last episode ... for now.
On a personal level, I didn't look forward to this, but I was prepared for it, with some tissue on side in case of tears. Al most certainly didn't had hard time on leaving behind the Zombie Wagon. Like she said, "Nukes couldn't take it out, but the gas tank could."
It could not have been cheap for the AMC to fill it either and they are not the .gov with pockets full of taxpayer money. The only thing that speakes for it is the NBC capability that they'd cocked up with no maintenance. To be honest it's quite amazing that Al managed to keep it going as long as it did.
Morgan guessed that Al wasn't really willing to leave it behind, but he never guessed that Al wanted another family. Not the Fear one, but her own one.
What I and Morgan don't get is why the helicopter people are after Al? What did she do to get the Reclamation Team after her? I can't be the pilot, because if it was the pilot then she wouldn't have told them about Al and others.
Al claimed that it was her going to AWOL. There is nothing there that connects her to Al, unless she spoke about her. Why would she? So then the question comes how they will track her and how they knew to go after the Zombie Wagon just in nick of time?
I say they got lucky. Snatching Morgan and Grace proved it. I could not figure out what the helicopter people just didn't kill the pair, when they had the chance. Was it really the story shield, because they had an opportunity to off Grace, when Morgan battled for the gun. The whole scene was iffy and you have to wonder how did they caught the pair in the Zombie Wagon.
Chasing them with the helicopter, sure. No problem, but on the ground requires a bit more doing since we are talking about going into the irradiated zones and coming back out from there. The funniest thing that the reclamation team did was shooting the bloody wagon. It's not like they didn't know that it has been proved against small arms fire.
"Come out with hands in the air... or we'll shoot."
I'm glad they were in angle, because ricochetting bullets could have hit them. Not that it really mattered as the civil war cannon solved the reclamation project. The scene saved the episode.
Morgan's interview, sad but we could have done without it. I'm glad that he chose to be a stubborn bastards afterwards for us to hear the coordinates 35 42 24 84, 83 22 59 16, which places it to Tibet according to reverse coordinates.
That's going to be a long way to fly a helicopter.
Goodbye Al. It was nice knowing you.
