    re Carl and the kid -
    the kid is running he has the rifle in his right hand not cocked and pointed
    Hershel and Carl tell him to drop the gun
    the kid says 'here take it'
    He doesn't point it at them but he doesn't drop it either.
    They could have told him to drop it again but I say Carl is justified also.

    re the Gov and friends in the Tombs
    someone else pointed it out - 2 smoke bomb grenades are dropped in their midst but how they did that i have no idea

    when they are running out - Maggie and Glenn are the only 2 shooting at them

    after they leave Michonne, Rick, Carol and Daryl appear

    what the heck were those 4 doing during that time?

    lastly - i have to say i think they killed Andrea for the sake of killing Andrea - this was the first major character death that seemed to happen for no good reason for me.

    I have a question: Carl says to Rick that Rick didn't kill Andrew; and Andrew came back to kill Lori (he said "mom").

    huh? I thought Lori died at childbirth and Carl shot her so she doesn't turn. Who is Andrew and what is Carl talking about?

    I'd be curious to hear your reasoning behind this statement.

    In my opinion Andrea's death was textbook "tragedy"... she had a fatal flaw (her desire to save everyone's life which ultimately caused more death, even her own) and paid the price for it. Classic Greek tragedy stuff.

    You could argue that the old guy with the RV (forget his name) from Season 1 was a "no good reason" death. The only reasoning behind his killing (thematically I mean... of course there are always random deaths in the ZA) was to provide a counter-point to Shane's death (since they were on opposite ends of the survivalist's spectrum).

    Yeah, that was confusing.

    The only thing I was expecting was better writing! Seriously, I wasn't "expecting" anything.

    I thought they killed her off because she was no good with tools.

    What I perhaps meant to say is that it was unsatisfying.
    I feel like the writers did it for shock season ending value more than anything else.

    I dunno maybe it's because it's one of a few major character deaths we didn't see on screen.

    Thank you - I wanted to ask that also!

    For me showAndrea was simply too stupid to live.
    I hated the character and hated the actress and was delighted to see her die because of her own stupidity.

    Andrew was the con Rick chased outside when Tomas turned on him. Andrew wasn't killed by walkers, and started the zombie attack that killed T-Dog.

    As to Carl blaming Andrew, Carol was practicing C-sections in case Hershel wasn't able to do it. But because of Andrew's zombie attack, they were scattered around the prison, and Lori went into labor without the people prepared to help her.

    I thought it was a good finale if not completely satisfying. I thought for sure someone was gonna step up and kill the governor when he started shooting his own people but the writers couldn't let someone so significant be killed by someone so insignificant.
    Also, did we ever find out who drove the truck (zombie bomb) into the prison a few episodes back? What was the point of hiding their identity?

    This. I'm still in the camp that doesn't like Carl (or the actor), but I will give him this -- he took some bad ass pills this season and they kicked in nicely....

    I'm not sure his/her identity was being hidden, so much as he/she was dressed/armored for zombie-wrangling...

    And to protect him/her from the bullets that were going to be flying as soon as s/he got out of the truck.

    Agreed....one of the few emotional moments in this series.

    Wow...I'm glad I wasn't the only one who got that vibe. Does that make me a dirty old man?

    I'd say this finale was ant climactic. The Gov wasn't defeated, beaten, by Rick. Instead the Gov defeated himself by being too arrogant, and taking noobs with him on his witch hunt. Rick & co. still need to be worried about the Gov.. Status quo remains.

    Plus it was a VERY poorly kept secret that the Guv was signed through next season...

    Although that doesn't really mean anything...contracts can always be canceled by the network. That's why nearly everybody has a seven-year contract at the beginning of a series...so the network can have them if they want them. I bet, e.g., that Laurie Holden's contract still had years to go when they killed her.

    Knowing how seat-of-the-pants Walking Dead is, I wouldn't be surprised if they signed him for two years because they just didn't know how long they wanted him for, and given how this season ended, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't make the decision to keep him for another year until quite late in the game.

    You would think shows would "sign" someone for multi-years but tell them that it's really one year. Do that to keep it from leaking out.

    I wonder if that happens, or if the real years still get leaked out when they are looking or getting more work on other projects before it airs.

    As an actor you'd expect me to sign (what I think is) a one year contract when it's really a 7 year contract??? :confused:
