Due to a halt in manufacturing on “The Walking Dead” triggered by the coronavirus pandemic, the actual Period 10 finale will air as a special later on this year. So, on Sunday, the season finished up with its de facto last episode, and also it was kind of cat-aclysmic.
The episode, titled “The Tower,” was clearly never ever meant to be the actual season finale; it’s mostly just presentation. The survivors are hiding in a health center, and the Whisperers, now led by former country music celebrity Beta (Ryan Hurst), do a great deal of walking searching for them.
In fact, the main bad guy of the episode ends up being … pet cats.

We’re not kitten.
Pet cats seem to be the key residents of the health center in which everyone’s taken sanctuary; the cat pee scent is so bad that it becomes part of the reason Judith (Cailey Fleming) eventually leaves to hang around outdoors with Daryl (Norman Reedus).
The felines’ most significant power move comes when they inadvertently lead the Whisperers to the hospital. After seeing a feline cross their course, the Whisperers abruptly transform their training course– because after the upcoming battle, the felines will certainly acquire the Earth.
Not much occurs with new personality Princess (Paola Lazaro), either: After scaring away their horses, she looks for new flights for Eugene (Josh McDermitt), Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Yumiko (Eleanor Matsuura). While doing so, she winds up leading them via a minefield, where they obtain stuck for some time. Yet by the time the episode wraps up, they’re all buddies.
Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Lydia (Cassady McClincy) clash about him eliminating her mommy Alpha (Samantha Morton)– which, yeah, makes good sense. Yet by the end, they likewise hug it out, again indicating that one of the most interesting point going on in this episode is felines.
Probably the felines are just mad that Michonne (Danai Gurira) is off the show currently, given that she was such a fan of feline art? Maybe someone on the production team assumes felines should’ve gotten more interest on “Tiger King” and also intends to emphasize? Regardless, the feline emperors are rising, as well as the results are cat-astrophic
