The Walking Dead
By Jessica Dwyer
I had to take a day or so to figure out exactly how I felt about the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead. And in the end I liked it, but was still disappointed with the flow of a season that felt like two really rushed ones stuck together.
“A” as the episode is called follows Michonne, Carl, and Rick as they head towards Terminus…which I think by now everyone has figured out is full of the cannibals we knew would be showing up eventually. This episode though takes a cue from Lost and has multiple flashbacks to a happier time at the prison and allows us to see Scott Wilson once again as Herschel. It hurt a lot to see Herschel again and I can’t help but wonder if this was show runner Gimple regretting the decision to kill off the character. I know I regret them killing him off. But that’s just me…and 90 percent of the internet.
This flashback is happening to a very bloody and shaking Rick. We find out what has caused his shaking hands and the blood that’s covering him. Daryl’s new friends Joe and his gang (along with Daryl) have finally caught up to Rick and company who they are still pissed at for killing their friend a few episodes ago. In a scene that stirred the net into a frenzy of “take a bit out of crime” memes we see Joe’s crew attack our heroes. One of them decides that Carl is just his type. While they beat the hell out of Daryl who tries to stop this all from happening the guy starts attacking Carl while Rick is forced to watch.Tweet
