Upcoming Walking Dead Episode To Run 85 Minutes, Still End In Cliffhanger

Posted by November 2, 2016 Comment

normanreedusAccording to the guide button on your cable remote, as first noticed by SpoilerTV, the fourth episode of this season of AMC’s The Walking Dead will run for eighty-five minutes. Titled “Service,” the extra long episode is expected to end in a frustrating cliffhanger, even with 25 minutes of additional time to tell its story. Additionally, the following episode will wait upwards of a half hour before finally resolving the cliffhanger, leaving just enough time to set up another cliffhanger at the end.

“Ha ha, suckers,” said showrunner Scott M. Gimple, I imagine, while coming up with the idea to string viewers along for an hour and a half with no payoff… again!

The official description of the episode is as follows:

The remaining members of the group try to keep it together in Alexandria; they receive a sobering visit.

Immediately after the episode airs, fans of the show are expected to flock to Reddit, where they will unanimously declare that they’re sincerely done with the show, for real this time, no, seriously, before returning the following week to repeat the same all over cycle. It’s a time-honored tradition amongst Walking Dead viewers. Yeah, I’ll be there too.

Created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead airs on Sundays at 9PM on AMC.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
