Warning: major spoilers for Episode 16 of The Walking Dead, the season 5 finale. These spoilers come courtesy of The Spoiling Dead Fans Facebook page. I’m going to be honest when I say that I haven’t read the spoilers, nor am I trying to read the spoilers – so I can offer no insights into what you are about to read. I shielded my eyes as much as humanely possible when posting these.
TSDF EXCLUSIVE: Billy Murray’s Legs are BACK! Thankfully, source has offered to answer a few questions. Although he hasn’t given away all the details, we have managed to rule out a few rumors and speculations, as well as confirm a few things we already suspected. -Prime

Note: the information is correct at the time of posting. As always, anything can change. Especially for the finale, it’s likely alternate scenes were filmed.
The Spoiling Dead leaked FULL episode spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 5 finale. So now we officially have every detail of the episode. I, on the other hand, have still managed to avoid them completely. So if you’re interested, view the spoilers below.
TSDF EXCLUSIVE: “Conquer” season finale summary! We honestly want to thank everyone from TSDF Family and all of our sources for being with us this season. Without our sources or our members, we would be nothing. Now on to the spoilers! -Prime
Morgan wakes up in a car. He makes some porridge-type food by a fire. An armed man (Benedict Samuel) walks over and points a gun at him. Morgan asks what the W on his head means. He explains the backstory about the wolves. He says “you know the first settlers here, put bounties on wolves heads, brought the natives into it, made them hunt them. Didn’t take them to long to kill them all (points to the W on his forehead) they’re back now.” After threatening to take Morgan and kill him, Morgan takes him out ninja style with his hiking stick along with a second Wolves member (Jessie C. Boyd) who jumps out of some bushes. Morgan ties them up and puts them in the car. He sounds the horn and walks off. Aint nobody gonna mess with Morgan!
Rick wakes up to Michonne watching him. She says that Pete is in another house. Carol, Glenn and Abe enter. Carol butts in and asks why Rick took the guns (hiding the fact she was involved). Carol tells Rick that he should tell a story the town wants to hear (that he will follow their rules) at the meeting later. Carol says that’s what she’s been doing since they got there. Michonne asks why. Carol replies, “Because these people are children and children like stories.” Rick engineers a plan to reinstate the Ricktatorship and hold Deanna’s family at knife point so they can take the armory.
Maggie tries to persuade Deanna to change her mind about Rick. Reg backs Maggie up.
Sasha buries some walkers and takes a nap in the grave because why sleep in a warm bed when you can sleep in a cozy grave of death?
Carol wakes Sleeping Beauty (aka Rick) and gives him back his gun. She didn’t tell the others about the guns just in case they didn’t understand. Rick says he does not want to lie. Carol says, “You want this place and you don’t want to lie. Sunshine, you don’t get both.” Carol keeps it real.
Daryl and Aaron watch a guy in a red poncho from afar. Recruiter spy mode activated.
Nicholas watches Glenn while acting suspicious. Maggie comes over to chat about working everything out. What a babe.
Glenn sees Nicholas climb the walls. GET BACK IN THE FUCKING HOUSE, NICHOLAS!
Father G leaves the community unarmed. Ok, you can leave that’s fine.
Daryl and Aaron lose red poncho guy, but find a food warehouse. Daryl opens a truck, which triggers a trap opening three other truck doors. It releases a hundred or so walkers. There are torsos hanging inside on hooks. Daryl wins zombie kill of the year after beheading three walkers with a rusty chain in one swing. They both take refuge in a car, surrounded by walkers pounding on the window. Inside is a note saying, “Trap, bad people coming. Don’t stay.” Too bad they didn’t see that memo a little earlier.
Carol visits Pete in an effort to get him to check on Tara. She brings Pete some food and holds a knife to his throat after he tells her to get out. Carol continues to keep it real.
Glenn follows Nicholas through the forest. After pausing to look at a dead walker, Glenn is shot in the shoulder and rolls down a slope. Damn you, Nicholas! Why couldn’t you have just stayed in the house?
Rick checks up on Jessie. Pete sees them both from his ‘house prison’.
Daryl formulates a plan to fight his way through the crowd to give Aaron a chance to run. Aaron wants to fight together because that’s what BFFs do! Before they head out, our hero Morgan shows up like a boss and helps them both to a safe distance. Aaron tells him about the ASZ. Morgan says he is going somewhere else but is lost and pulls out a map. Daryl shows him where they are on the map. He sees the note, “Sorry I was an asshole, come to Washington. The new world’s gonna need Rick grimes.” Daryl looks at Morgan, but does not acknowledge the note.
Father Dick finds a walker and is ready to die by its dirty dead hands. He notices a noose around the walker’s head. He changes his mind and then uses the noose to rip the walker’s head off. He cries in the middle of the road.
Abraham visits a bed-bound, unconscious Tara. Rosita and Eugene are there too. Abraham and Eugene both apologize to each other for what happened in the past.
Gabe returns and Spencer asks him to shut the gate. Gabe barely even makes the effort to close it and walks off, leaving it unlocked.
Nicholas and Glenn fight, leaving Glenn stuck under a pile of walkers.
Michonne asks Rick if he is ready (for the meeting). He explains to Michonne how they took the guns and attempts to give his piece to Michonne. She pushes his hand away and lets him keep it. She explains that she’s not against Rick and will follow him however it all pans out.
Rick, while in his room, recounts an old conversation with Bob: (Rick’s voice) ‘This is the real world Bob.’ Bob replies, ‘No this is a nightmare, and nightmares end.’
Rick finds the gate open and some blood on the lock as well as some on the ground. He locks it and runs off.
Gabe returns to his church to find Sasha waiting for him. She wants to talk about what she is going through.
The meeting is starting without Rick and Glenn. Deanna talks about how Rick took the pistol and pointed it at people.
Nicholas is navigating the forest while Rick is searching the community. It’s now night time. (Sunset came rather quickly.)
Gabe refuses to console Sasha and very nastily talks about how Bob was dismembered causing Sasha to scream at him and pin him to a wall. Father Dick is full of fail.
Deanna, Abraham, Maggie, Michonne and Carol say their piece to the town about Rick. Meanwhile, Gabe is wrestling Sasha’s rifle out of her hands. Rick is fighting off three walkers in the town and Glenn is beating up Nicholas.
Two members of the Wolves bring red poncho guy to the trap that Daryl and Aaron escaped from earlier. They slit red Poncho’s throat and reset the trap using music (to get the walkers back in the trucks). Fairwell, red poncho guy. We hardly knew thee.
Glenn points a gun to Nicholas’ head, but spares his life.
Back at the meeting, Tobin is defending Deanna when Rick walks in with a walker corpse. He throws it on the ground.*corpse drop*
Sasha is pointing her gun at Gabe, who is stopped by Maggie. Gabe shouts that she should have let Sasha shoot him because everyone died because of him.
Rick explains how the walker got in through an open gate and that the dead and living will always find a way in. He says, “The ones out there will hunt us and find us. You need to change now.” While he is saying this speech, we see Glenn carry Nicholas away, Carl with Judith at home, Maggie, Sasha and Gabe praying together, Tara waking up, and a Wolves member going through Aaron’s photos of the ASZ.
A wild-looking Pete appears wielding Michonne’s katana and shouts “You’re not one of us!” He pushes Reg out the way, slitting his throat by accident. Abe pins Pete down. Deanna hysterically holding a dying Reg says, “Rick, do it.” Without hesitation, Rick executes Pete. Goodbye, porch dick. Now, you’re just a dead dick.
A familiar face calls Rick’s name. Rick looks up to see Aaron, Daryl and Morgan standing there.
Morgan and Rick share an intimate eyefuck.
Screen to black.
Stick around for another after credits scene!
NOTE: The information is correct at the time of posting. As always and especially with a finale, anything and everything could change by the time we see it on TV.
Don’t forget to tune into the Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead set to air at 9PM EST on AMC on Sunday, March 29th.
