Recap: Rick Grimes makes final stand on ‘The Walking Dead,’ but he’ll be back in new movies

Spoiler alert: This story contains significant details from Sunday’s episode of “The Walking Dead.”

Sunday’s episode of “The Walking Dead” was touted by AMC as “Rick Grimes’ Last Episode.” By the end, however, the zombie action-thriller’s leading man appears to be 180 degrees from the show’s title: He isn’t walking, but he isn’t dead, either. 

What that means for Rick, since this is the last series episode for the character and the actor who plays him, Andrew Lincoln, is anybody’s guess. But a series of TV movies will continue his story, AMC announced Sunday. But we’ll get to that.

At the end of last week’s episode, viewers saw Rick impaled on rebar jutting from a concrete slab after his spooked horse threw him as a swarm of walkers approached. But there was no way Rick was going to end up as zombie chow, which would have been an ignominious demise for the walker-slaying hero.

As Sunday’s episode opens, Rick is back in the hospital room where the series began. It’s clear he’s in a hallucinatory state as he’s talking to his bedridden earlier self, who had awakened from a coma to find the zombie apocalypse had started.
