Is this thing on?
This was a terrible season finale. They should have killed the governor off an moved onto something else next season. I like the "Buffy" formula. One Big Bad per season.
My apologies. I somehow missed yours.
Anyone else cringe when the Gov handed Tyrese the sniper rifle and Tyrese casually pointed it all over the place including people.
The rifle should be pointed In the air or directly at the ground, not sure if this was to reinforce the fact the Tyrese has little experience with a gun or just a random action.
Heh, I wondered the same thing. "Is it just luck that this is a guy who has been shown to be bad with guns?"
I was surprised by the protagonists' plan. I guess they voted to stay. I thought for sure they were going to booby trap the heck out of that prison, take the usable vehicles or disable them all and lock the Woodbury "army" IN (it IS a prison for crying out loud). Every Woodbury casualty would become another biter for the Woodbury "prisoners" to have to deal with. At worst Rick's group could have given themselves a heck of a head start.
What were Rick, Daryl and Michonne going to do against the remaining Woodbury force, really. If the Governor hadn't gone crazy that mission was baffling.
This is the way I saw it to. Granted I was not paying close attention to the details, but this is how I feel it played out.
I enjoyed this episode and how it played out. Loved it when the smoke bombs and noise and lights went off in the prison. I mean, I knew something was going to happen, but at one point I thought "well maybe they did just leave". Then BAMM and whoop whoop whoop! And the Gov going on pyscho on his town of people - not trained fighters, but just regular old village people, so what did he really expect. But gunning them all down and then the one gal alive to survive and tell Rick. I am glad they brought them all back to the prison and and can make that into a new community. I think that will bring a change to the show. I imagine we haven't seen the last of the Governor though. He will be back with a stronger nastier group of guys.
Looks like they have fun
Did the Governor know that girl was alive, or did he just run out of bullets?
It was my impression that the Governor just ran out of steam or got himself under control. And he didn't see her alive under the the corpse.
It was Justified. Raylan shot the guy in the bar after pulling the fire alarm.
He was shooting dead people in the head, and when he got to the guy who was lying on top of the woman, his gun either jammed or ran out. Then he settled down and walked away.
re Carl shooting the kid when he didn't comply, and expecting the guy to drop his gun and not move forward. As a police officer, I can't tell you the number of times I've seen people do the STUPIDEST things when guns are pointed at them...by real cops. I or we will scream "show me your hands!" or "Don't move!" or whatever, and people STILL put their hands in their pockets, under the car seat, whatever. And these are innocent people. Well, sort of. Most totally innocent people don't have cops' guns pointed at them. Point is, they do the dumbest ****. And we aren't 12 year old kids, like Carl.
All that said, Carl did the right thing. This isn't our world anymore, it's the ZA world. You can't take a chance on people. Misjudging one person is gonna get someone or someones killed. That kid didn't comply, in fact he did the opposite. One warning given, the next one is a bullet coming at ya. Fast, as Raylan would say.
I also liked how Carl looked so dubious about the Woodbury survivors arrival. That gives Carl the slight push away from "I'd do that" to psychopath. But again, I think he's the only one thinking about what world they are in. I'd say give them a chance, but I'd be very very guarded about it. Although most of them looked like very little threat.
I thought the ep was good, I enjoyed it a lot...despite the absolute idiot things the writers had the characters do. Andrea sitting there not working her butt off to get lose was soooooooooo stupid it was distracting. And I remember in the first ep what a well oiled fighting machine our heroes were....and this episode they have the bad guy army in a....you know...PRISON WITH NO KEYS...and they didn't take advantage of that. Instead they tried to SCARE
the psychopath away. Whaaaaa?
And the whole handcuff thing, the zombie headshots vs. never hitting a real person, and.....well, a whole bunch of small stupid stuff that really wears over time. Lazy writing, IMO.
As much as I disliked Andrea, waiting on that shot to go off while the characters were outside with their heads down in sorrow knowing that Michonne was inside saying goodbye...that was well done.
That would not have been a good day!
And that is one of the reasons Boardwalk Empire and True Blood are lacking for me. The story arc is understood and I am just watching it play out.
GoT changed all that for me. So, I must respectfully disagree. It was a refreshing change to not have the "villain" dispatched either at the ten or sixteen hour mark based on the number of episodes in a given show.
Were people actually expecting this episode to be a showdown between Rick and the Governor, with the Governor ultimately being killed? I definitely figured the Governor would not be killed off so quickly, so I wasn't expecting that. I wonder if people who were expecting that were more underwhelmed by this episode than those that weren't expecting it.
Not the scene you are describing, but this one comes to mind as well:
