By far the best episode of the season....every episode should have been like this though. This was exactly the kind of chaos I was expecting to see. The scenes at the perimeter with the army dudes firing wildly at the horde were great I thought.
I really think it would have been a great twist to have the junkie eaten alive right in front of his Mom on the other side of the hospital door. Like Glyn and Everybody Hates Chris in the revolving door on WD last season. Missed opportunity there.
The stuff with the army guy was really stupid though. Like that dope is going to worry about the Salazars when his whole unit has pulled out and the city is in flames. If he was that pissed, why not just lie to Travis about where to go in the first place? And why shoot the girl and not the dude who sliced up your arm?
So what exactly did Mysterious Black Guy need Nick for in order to escape anyway? How exactly were those junkie skills going to come in handy? I assumed he was just going to throw the kid at the zombies at some point to distract them, but apparently not.
Kinda hard to work a boat into the end there and NOT have it feel like a rip-off of the Dawn of the Dead remake, but I'll give them a pass for that.
I loved how the ex-wife who was NOT EVEN A REAL NURSE managed to work out the pathology of the infection in a few hours and it took Rick and Co like 4 seasons to get there. And now she's dead! (Pretty quick to give up there too seemed to me, didn't she want to take a few minutes to write her son a letter or something? What was the rush to eat a bullet?)
I guess on TD they confirmed there would be a Season Two and with the same cast too. Rats.
