Sigh, so much awesomeness, and then there's effing Lori.
The first 20 minutes was solid gold...I'm not sure how many consecutive hours I could watch of zombie armageddon, but it would be an awful lot.
Definitely will have to watch the recap later because I still do not get really what their plan was at the Farm...seemed like a lot of aimless driving back and forth and wasting ammo on undead target practice. Sure made for exciting TV though. Poor Jimmy! Poor Patricia too. I'm kinda surprised the suicidal chick made it out alive, and Hersel for that matter. I thought for sure he was going down in a blaze of glory, but glad they decided to keep him around.
The barn burning scene was awesome, really well done...a highlight of the season for sure.
Bummer about Andrea, but if she hadn't gotten separated it wouldn't have led to ONE OF SINGLE MOST AWESOME SCENES IN TELEVISION OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS:
MICHONNE FTW, baby!!!
The awesomeness meter on this show just got cranked up to about 15 on the Bad-Ass Scale!
And not only that, the closing shot of The Prison!?! - How incredible was THAT? Nerdgasm!
The only sour note in the whole episode, and I am getting tired of coming back to this, but damn, LORI. WHAT THE HELL?!?! YOU basically tell Rick to murder Shane, then screw with Shane's head causing him to try and murder Rick, and then when Rick actually does what you asked, because he is forced to due to your careless meddling, you have the unbelievable audacity to get all huffy WITH HIM?!?!?
She is just a rotten person, plain and simple. I wish she would just leave and take Carol with her already. Ugh, so over those two.
Some interesting stuff from Talking Dead:
The have cast the role of Michonne but I have no idea who the actress was (Denai something?) they showed so no idea if this was a good choice or what.
The host actually asked them what the hell about Lori and before Kirkman joked it away the other dude Mazzara started to explain that it was really herself she was mad at for setting all these events into motion more or less, but still, geez.
I guess they were originally planning to have Randall escape and kill Hershel but ultimately changed their minds and let him live.
Great show, great season, a little slow at times but definitely strong as hell at the end there. Looking forward to next year SO MUCH!
