Rambling TV: Thoughts on The Walking Dead season finale
The Walking Dead episode 4.8: Too Far Gone
*The beginning of the episode kind of got on my nerves until members of Team Prison showed up. I could care less about Governor red shirts.
*Daryl and Ricks 3 episode confrontation? Well, I'm glad it finally happened, I'm glad Daryl was clearly mad about it (Caryl is pretty much canon now, right?) but the problem I had with it was Rick's huge speech he gave to the Governor. He said "we can't be too far gone" and that he "doesn't make decisions anymore" Well, too bad he didn't give Carol that courtesy. It was such an emotional moment, I'm annoyed that this out of character bullshit distracted me from it.
*Oh Hershel, I saw that coming a mile away, but it doesn't make it any easier. I'm going to miss him.
*I'm surprised Rick didn't start his conversation with The Governor with: "Hey, remembered that time you raped one of my friends, tortured the other and then murdered 3/4 of your little village? That may have given a few other people something to think about.
*I don't think Judith is gone. I think one of those kids grabbed her, and Rick and Carl will have a tearful reunion.
*Based on filming SPOILERS - Apparently Carol will meet up with Tyreese and those kids. He doesn't know yet. I'm really hoping this stupid story has some decent resolution because I still see it as the assassination of my favorite characters.
*All and all, I'm happy with the episode, it was intense and sad and I will give show runner Scott Glimple the benefit of the doubt that they won't continue to butcher one of my favorite characters.
