The finale party was at The Alamo in Newnan, GA. Which is one of the towns they filmed the show in. We arrived there after the tour was over around 6:30. It was a really cool place! The atmosphere was chill and it was fun to hang out there. It was a party of 85 people, so nothing too huge but not too small either.
First we got some drinks and a table with a couple of cool people we met. It was so nice to be surrounded by people who equally loved the show and were obsessed with it like me. They had really good food there. Salad, pasta, and these awesome garlic cheesy bread bite things.
Soon after we ate Daniel Thomas May arrived. Aka Allen. They introduced him on stage and then we all got to mingle and meet with him. It was kind of awkward meeting him though because Allen isn’t a huge character and I didn’t know much about Daniel. But he was nice and I got a picture and autograph from him. It was just cool having him right next to us meeting people the whole time. He was standing behind us and beside our table while meeting people.
Eventually the last episode, This Sorrowful Life, began and we watched it. Not everyone really paid attention to it though. Most people were still socializing and hanging out. We were doing both. A little while after that Erajj Mitchell showed up. We didn’t really know who he was but he looked so familiar to me. Not from TWD but from something else. I just couldn’t figure it out. They didn’t introduce him yet because the finale was starting but one of the hosts told us that he was on tonight’s episode.
We then watched the finale. I don’t want to get into reactions about what happened or anything. That’s a whole separate post. But it was fun because everyone would cheer or react during certain scenes. Or when our guests would come on screen. Erajj’s character ended up being the one who tried to stand up to the governor a little bit right before he killed him and his whole army.
As the finale was almost coming to an end Melissa Mcbride showed up! We pretty much knew she was supposed to be there but she was taking forever to arrive and we got worried she might not come. We saw her in the back and during a commercial they walked her in and everyone cheered. It was great and she looked beautiful! Then they had her sit down and all of us watch the end of the finale. She was sitting right in front of us! Along with the other guests. At the ending scenes where Andrea died it was nice to see Melissa reacting. She was covering her mouth. She’d obviously not seen the end yet either.
So after the finale they started setting up and getting ready for the podcast. The Walker Stalkers have a special podcast they do and this time they were doing it live with all of us watching and with the three guests. It was fun to be apart of it! Melissa was adorable and hilarious. She’s so witty and laid back. She told some funny stories and jokes. There was a time where they played a “recap” intro song they had and Melissa was talking in a deep voice and adding in commentary during the song. It was hilarious, haha. I would’ve taken video of it all if my phone hadn’t of died :( I’m really disappointed that I couldn’t. I did reblog some videos of it earlier though so go look at those! Anyways, Daniel Thomas May had a lot of interesting things to say during the podcast too. He dissected the show and scenes really well. I started to like him a lot. Erajj was also really cool. He was so into it and just such a huge fan of the show. He was just thrilled that he actually got a role on the show and to be apart of it. He then said that he would be playing Chaff in Catching Fire AND THEN IT CLICKED AND ALL MADE SENSE! That’s where I know him from!!! I remember seeing him cast as Chaff! He seems like he’ll be perfect for the part and it made me so excited that that was him!! There was also time to go up on the stage and ask questions if you wanted to. I wanted to but I just couldn’t think of any good questions :/ But once the podcast is posted, everyone should go listen to it! I will post it on here. It was a really good one!
Ok, after the podcast was over it was finally time to get a chance to meet Melissa! Cheree and I jumped up and tried to get close to the stage right away where she would be walking down. Everyone crowded around and we ended up being second in line to meet her! Both of us were a ball of nerves. My heart was pounding out of my chest. She said hello and we introduced ourselves. We both got a hug and I was all like it’s so great to meet you!! She was being so friendly and trying to get to know us a little bit. She asked about where we were from and such. She signed our Georgia tourist magazines with The Walking Dead on the cover. She wrote me a nice message and put a heart! :) Then we asked for pictures and I took Cheree’s and hers first. Then Cheree took mine. Melissa touched my hair a bit while she had her arm around me and told me that my hair was so pretty! Ajflkwjfeijfosj that made me so happy! I was just shaking a lot during the picture. I hope that she couldn’t tell, haha. I could barely smile because my mouth was shaking, haha. Then when we were about to leave I quickly asked her if she could sign our shirts. So she signed the back of both of our shirts. I now forever have Melissa Mcbride’s signature on the back of my Fight The Dead Fear The Living shirt!
Our turn was over after that. We ran to use the bathroom and were basically fangirling all over the place, haha. Then we ran out to the car and left because we had a long drive home. Later on we realized that we forgot to go meet Erajj. Which sucked because I really wanted to meet him since he was going to be in Catching Fire and he seemed so nice. We were just too excited and star struck by Melissa that we completely forgot. But it was great because we both tweeted our pictures and Melissa favorited them and followed us on twitter! She was just amazing! And I am so happy to have met her!!
And thank you to anyone who reads this long ass post, haha.
