Defending The Final Season Ending
So, I assume the fanbase is pretty splitted up regarding the ending of the TWD series. Now personally I liked the way it ended and here's my reasons:
1. In my opinion they nailed the surprise effect of Clem's fate pretty well: I didn't expect, AT ALL, the outcome, and I won't lie, I'm really glad she survived.
2. Her death would be basically Lee 2.0, something we've already seen, felt and played at the beginning of this series, and it would have resulted a bit repetitive as an ending.
3. Regarding the "she was already turning" complain, on one hand the face looked pretty messed up, however it could be because of the blood loss (I know, it didn't happen in S2 with the dog bite, but this is a different graphical style and different graphical attention to detail,) and also the face's color didn't change heavily, like usually. Ultimately there's not really a rule regarding the zombification process, sometimes they turned fast, sometimes slowly, it's never really that clear in the TWD franchise (even in the comic).
4. This is the best way to conclude her character story arc: finally at peace, no more running, living in a place she can call home together with her beloved AJ.
I kinda would have prefered multiple endings, just like in S2, but for these reasons I enjoy this ending, as well as The Final Season overall.
