There was a storyline in the comics called "The Hunters", which I thought would be too disturbing for the tv show.  After the whole Lizzie story, I think they could pull it off.

well they did minimize the brutality of what the Gov did to Michonne in the comics vs Maggie on the show and what Michonne did to the Gov. But they do show a lot of brutality and violence so who knows for sure. One recent article with andrew lincoln suggests tonight's finale will have a level of 'darkness' about it the show hasn't gone to yet...

I think that storyline is pretty tame versus what we have seen so far.  The Woodbury arena, heads in aquariums,  Herschel's death were all far more disturbing for me.

Way too early for N---- and the Hilltop crew. They only just got out from the shadow of the Governor this season, it's too soon to introduce another singular uber villain from the same vein. I'm sure they'll get there eventually but they have a lot of ground to cover, both literally and figuratively, first.

Not sure what would push Rick to the breaking point tonight as teased...somehow I still feel worried for Judith. Happy reunion turned tragic?

I still think this season has been a bore and the high point was offing Lizzie. I hope for some type of brutal ending tonight.

Another awesome episode, ending the season on a high note. So many unanswered questions though, mainly where are Beth and Carol/Tyreese.

How AWESOME was Rick biting that dude? That entire scene honestly creeped me out much more than Carol shooting psycho girl. Those guys were around one episode, but their deaths were just as satisfying as Governor's.

I was surprised at all the little things I caught during the episode. Pile of human remains that Rick and co. ran by right before they went into that tribute room, and Apple Store Employee saying something about "joining together makes us stronger" when distributing the food. Cannibals confirmed. Also the discussion about the Rabbit trap foreshadowing Terminus. Oh, and the Terminus people calling Rick and co. by nicknames. Goes back to earlier when Rick told Carl not to name the pigs since they'd have to eat them eventually.

And I guess there were other people in those train cars yelling for help? I assumed it was Glenn/Maggie/etc.

Oh and what was up with that doofus who got swarmed by those Zombies in the woods? How did he last that long? I mean he had at least a few minutes to, ya know, run away from that hoard in just about any direction instead of standing there like an idiot swinging his stick in a circle.

I think I felt about last night's episode the same way I felt about the season. Great episode. Great character development.

Joe thing was awesome. Haven't reached that scene's equivalent in the comics yet. Thought the Rick (and others) coming to terms with the fact that it is ok to be able to do what they are capable of doing now in this world was great. It may feel evil, but if it's to protect the ones you love then it is Ok. Doesn't make them a monster.

All that being said, my gut feeling is not enough happened this season. Can't totally explain why I feel that, but I do. Would have liked a little more info on Terminus with all the build up to the finale too.
