This week’s episode and the season finale… not what I was expecting, not at all, but it’s in a good way!
In the graphic novel, the first compendium ends with the folks from the prison fleeing as the Governor’s people attack. I was expecting something more along those lines instead of them hiding out having pretended to leave, then attacking.
I’m glad Rick decided to bring the people from Woodbury back to the prison. That’s the kind of leader I wanted him to be. Carl on the other hand… Is Carl going sociopath on us? Growing up in the world like that would change anyone, but a child, without a frame of reference? It’s an interesting story arc, and I can’t wait to see how they handle it.
The two characters I disliked are dead this season: Andrea and Lori. But the bus brought in a whole bunch of new and interesting potential characters. There’s a lot of possibilities for next season.
The Governor is still out there. They won the battle, but that doesn’t mean much. The Governor will be back, and I’m sure we all know it. I can’t believe we have to wait until October for the next season to start! Here’s a link to the cast and producers talking about next season. I had no idea Andrew Lincoln was English! His accent freaked me out when I heard it!
This is the end of the Walking Dead updates for the season, friends… I know you’re just as sad as I am. 😦
