the governor is an awful character, and even the promos for this last episode that were about "HE'S BACK..." were fucking stupid.

his wiping-out-the-entire-city-of-mayberry thing while they all stood there and watched (some of them armed!) was maybe the worst point in all of last season.

ok so i hated these last two episodes, BUT it seems like maybe they were just setting up to course-correct the horrible ending last season so i'm cautiously optimistic

but why the fuck would the governor kill martinez? because he didn't want to be the leader? so he immediately kills the current leader creating a void in leadership? instead of just saying "no thanks"? that makes absolutely no sense

i kind of assumed it was just because he knew who he was and he didn't want the whole ruthless dictator thing coming out. but yeah, horrible boring episode as usual.

that would make sense, but didn't he say something like "don't ask me that!" as he killed him? referring to martinez asking him to be like a co-leader? maybe i missed something, but the impression i got at least was that he didn't want to be a leader again (and risk reverting to his old self) in which case, again, it makes zero sense to kill the current established leader

but again, setting up the real attack on the prison (with the tank, even) could at least potentially get the show back on the right path

When they walked into the bedroom, that's probably one of the dumbest things I've seen on the show.

4 guys walk into a room with a flashlight looking for walkers. They stand there looking around for a while before one jumps out of nowhere and grabs one of the guys. It seems no one is near him, so it takes a moment for someone to come and help, Guv kills it, they see heads and another walker materializes out of nowhere.

the governor shows up out of nowhere in this new pack of people, members of the leadership immediately die, and everyone flocks to him and his murderous revenge scheme to retake this prison. no one questions the motives, and they take him at his word that everyone in the prison deserves to die even as rick pleads for a really, really obvious peaceful resolution that none of them has any real reason to doubt.

the whole fucking setup of this last episode was a bullshit stupid lie that makes no sense.

Hahaha, me too. Didn't seem to impede him getting around at all, except for when the plot called for it.

I assume Daryl or Michonne found him a prosthetic out on a run but did they ever even mention it on the show?

this show has been surprisingly great the last few episodes. i hope next season gets into it immediately and doesn't take 10 episodes to do anything good

Yeah, this last string of episodes after they came back from the break have been good-to-great. There's a stillness to it that I admire, which makes the moments of violence all the more effective. Easily the most I've enjoyed this show.

(Haven't watched the finale yet though, hoping they don't drop the ball right before the buzzer.)

splitting the group up was definitely the best thing they could've done. agreed, it's been really enjoyable to see the way the puzzle starts to fit together, but it also just has so much more of those little moments.

plus the lack of melodrama since the characters are all out in the open and need to just focus on surviving has been aces. nobody's been terrible or the worst or anything and it's been great.

Yeah, me too! What the hell was she thinking!?
Thought for a final episode, the ending was pretty lame. I dunno, I guess I expected a big action packed shoot-out, with main characters being killed off, like the mid-season finale.
But on the other hand, that would get old very quickly. I'm intrigued (sp?) by the last sentence Rick says, so they managed to get me excited for Season 5.

Finally caught up on Walking Dead.

After the big action and plot twists prior to the finale, I was expecting it to end with more of a cliffhanger. Like CeetjeBeetje said, it's probably a good thing though.
Instead we see Rick finally man up and quit being a pussy. Good. His ending line really got me pumped for the future of the series.

Best episode of the season for me had to be "The Grove". This was the one that focused on Carol, Tyreese and the two girls. Very intense hour and a great character driven plot. You knew it was all going to shit when all four of them were in the house and living peaceful, almost "normal". Even when expecting it, the big reveal was a mindfuck. Episodes like these are why I love Walking Dead.

Yeah, that episode was great! Didn't expect that they would actually kill off characters outside of (mid) season finales. They should keep that up, because I wanna be surprised when someone dies, instead of thinking: Oh, this is the season finale. They'll probably kill off someone.
Anyway, pretty grim killing off those two little girls. Especially Carol shooting the psycho one (I can't remember their names) in the back of the head from point blank range, while Tyreese is watching. That shit is messed up, and just how I like it.
Pretty strange though that at the end of the episode, they don't seem to be carrying the baby with them.
