    Default Comma before 'though' at end of sentence

    Could someone please clarify whether or not a comma is required before 'though' when at the end of a sentence.

    Examples:

    1) 'I don't like apples. I am going to try this apple pie, though.'

    2) 'You are still taking part, though?'


    Thanks in advance for any reply.
