So much for that idea. Hahaha.

Hybrid zombie idea #2: A sick and twisted redneck starts tying up zombies and having sex with them. (You know there would be some twisted lonely bastard out there who would develop a zombie fetish.) Zombie gives birth. Voila. Hybrid zombie.
Gut wrenching mid-season finale.

Another dear favorite character gone.

The Governor pure evil.

The rat mystery continues.

Little girls with guns.

Judith?!?!?!????

counting down to February.....
I know right [MENTION=4677]bionicbob[/MENTION]?


I loved Hershel's "Ben Kenobi" moment right before he died. You could tell he was incredibly proud of Rick for trying to defuse the situation peacefully, not outright backing down and giving up or immediately opening fire and also acknowledging the council and that he alone didn't make decisions. Rick has really grown as a leader, especially with Hershel's help, and he was glad to see his apprentice having grown up before he died.

Also, why the hell didn't Rick or Hershel or Michonne mention to the Governor about the flu in the prison? I can't help but wonder if that would have discouraged him. As someone on Reddit posted, it was safer outside the prison than in it at that point.

the last episode proves the governor is a nice guy after all. a family man, juknow? ;-)

much of this season was filler until the gubernator returned.


farewell to hershel, the santa claus sage. gonna miss him.

minor gripe: hershel and michonne weren't gagged, so they could have seeded doubt about the gubernator's motives to anybody within earshot. but then there wouldn't have been a climactic stand-off at the fences. . . .
I dunno, [MENTION=10624]ssj[/MENTION]


Some of the people there (especially Tara) didn't seem all that into it once he actually called out Rick. I think they began to see the Governor was really sort of kind of out of his mind. I think by the time the shooting actually started they kept up with it because they kind of didn't really have a choice.

agree with all you said, aztek. but if hershel and michonne had piped up earlier, the other camp might have doubted the gubernator earlier, and things wouldn't have gotten to that stage. i think the writers simply didn't consider this; gagging the two would have been a simple (though unkind) plot patch.[/SPOILER]

Fair point. I think, however, that they were kept in the trailer alone and didn't have the chance. After all, no one knew they were there until the Governor told them. Even though Mitch was technically in charge, he was just a puppet. He went with the plan because, I think, he was afraid. Being ex-military, once the shooting started, he acted in accordance with his background and training.

I do also wonder if the reason no one said anything about the super flu was that either:
A) by the time the Governor showed up the threat had subsided or
B) if all else failed and the prison HAD been taken, a bunch of the people in the other camp would have gotten sick and died, possibly even the Governor himself.

It just seems a curiosity that no one said anything at all.
Gotta admit, I haven't really cared about this show in a long time, but this was great. Season 4 has been better, but still sort of not great so far, and now it makes sense why. Really it seems like the goal has been to get the show on a better track than it was on when Season 3 ended. Unfortunately, that meant that because there were a number of things that had to be put in place before the turning point, they couldn't just have that point in the first episode. But of course because of how TV works, they couldn't just have it in a random episode. They needed to put it in the mid season finale. So they added filler to make that point in episode 8.

I just have to say, I love this new track they're on. The show still has a ways to go before I would consider it great television, but I think it can get there. This episode nicely tied up all of my major qualms from last season and got things going in a direction that actually excites me. Bring on February.
I actually skipped an episode. I wasn't interested at all in when

The Governor returned and spent some time with those women, the girl and the old guy. I fast forwarded through the episode that followed that.
I really enjoyed the mid-season finale though.
This second half of season four, while no real big events, it has been very intense character driven, with some incredibly emotional episodes -- "The Grove" nearly killed me!!! And yes, I got teary eyed and smiled madly when Glen and Maggie reunited in "Us".

Really enjoyed the season finale, nice to see Farmer Rick put to pasture (see what I did there...? LOL!) and Bad Ass Rick return! Those folks in Terminus are going to be in BIG TROUBLE next season!
