Not too much really happened other than some "secret" was shared, which I'm assuming is some idea for safety (How to get to France, maybe?) or a warning of doom. A common theory is that the secret has something to do with the blood tests. Perhaps Lori is pregnant, maybe someone's infected. What do you guys think?

Lost in translation was viewed upon me as a silent reminder was spoke. What was spoken?

Not 'viewable' here in New Zealand until someone er... uplo... it. Shouldn't be long though. Was there much action this episode? 'Wildfire' was a bit more low key and focused more on the character development.

I was completely unimpressed by the finale, as well as the episode before it.

No action, but some damn good and well deserved hot showers. SPOILERS.

I thought it was garbage. The first two episodes were amazing and I don't think it can ever recapture the feelings I had of them. The finale's effects, which were piss poor, and overall story took me out of the experience. I'm not saying I want zombie killing every other second, cause I don't, I just thought Rick and a lot of other characters were off. The only scene that was interesting was when Shane tried to well... rape Lori. It showed how desperate he is to try and be in Rick's role as head of a family. Also I bet that whisper at the end was who started the infection and where to go from here.

@EpicSteve:  Not going to spoil it for you but I am pretty sure the secret shared between Rick and the doc Jenner was not about a cure or safe haven. I really liked the season finale it ended the way I wanted it too. I am glad the grenade got brought back up I was wondering about that damn thing since the first episode.

I liked the season finale, it got them back on track to some zombie killin :D.  I tried to get a stagger on role, but it seems to be you'd have to be born sometime in 1989...sucks because I live in ATL too...

@Claude: Nice! heh although we did see hot showers in the first episode too.

Great cliffhanger, great season.  Love it, love it.

@DarwinFish:  Whoa whoa whoa, spoiler tag!
 
The season finale was a little bit underwhelming. It's difficult to really pull off the level of humanity that's shown in the comics. The scenes with human drama are definitely the best thing about the series, but I suppose that doesn't really appeal to as much of the general TV viewing public. But even so, I'm looking forward to the second season.

Its not downloadable yet xD

My guess would be the big reveal from the book about the nature of the dead later on in the series.

Word on the internet is that Jenner might have told Rick that

I would greatly prefer that to something involving the Lori-Shane thing. In all honesty I'm really disappointed

This seems like the obvious answer to me, but I'm guessing there will be some doubt cast on who actually fathered the child.

@Izzyjam:  That was the line I was hoping to hear at the end of the season finale but I am ok with the way things are going. Maybe they are saving that for season 2.
#18 Posted by GlenTennis (3144 posts) -

Man I don't know what it is about these last two episodes, but I was disappointed. I'll still watch next season, but I was really hoping for this season to end with something that happens early in the comics, 
 

 
Like I said I can't quite put my finger on what the problem is. It's not even that they aren't staying exactly true to the comics, because I actually liked the film ending of The Watchmen more than the comic's version.

you don't have to get bit to turn into a zombie, everyone's already infected Iand as soon as they die they'll turn.

he's still alive, because I was hoping they would kill him off like they did in the comic. Maybe him nearly raping Lori is a hint towards his unstable future?

This. Either one of these two options.

Really weak finale. Felt more like the episode before the finale.

Meh, I was hoping for alot more zombie killing in this episode, you get a bit at the end with Darrel cutting off that dude's head with a fire axe. Kinda underwhelmed by the last two episodes, not enough zombie killin, too much talking and rushed character progression. The first two episodes were so much better. Also, I wish this was an original series, and that the comic didn't exist, cause then you know what happens and people compare it and talk about the comic all the time. Fuck comics, TV is better. I love reading novels but comic books tend to piss me off.

  • seeing Shane drinking in the shower and his staggering drunk wit hthe bottel in his hand trying to seduce/rape Lori was just cliched, bad and simply poor.
  • The whole MRI VISUAL SCAN thing was kinda cool but felt it was too slowed down, just get to the point.
  • Oh, you have a grenade, who timely you decided to bring that up.
  • Lets all get drunk!
  • Ending was really cool, more fight between Dale, Andrea, or anbody would have been great but w/e
 
Other then those remarks it was a great solid hour of some great tv, felt a little off but hey, still a good show

WHOA THE EXPLOSION EFFECTS SUCK DAWGS. 
 
But I liked it.

more fight between Dale, Andrea
Hands down best pair in the series, for both TV and comic.

Never read the comics but the duo are simply great working together but the ending with him just sitting down saying "Nah, Im not leaving cause you are being a big jerk" felt very lame
#31 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Dale is awesome, he reminds me off Bill from L4D xD.
 
Pretty weak finale I must say, I guess most spoiler tags here covered the possible followups.
 
I just hope they let the Shane-Lori thing die, I didn't like it since the bloody first time it showed.
I can handle zombies, I can handle cliche fights during zombie outbreaks, I can handle all of that, but I'm sick of the "oh I did your wife while you're gone but nobody's gonna mention it so eventually we'll have a story arc to fall back upon."
 
Drama sure, but more zombies, less desperate housewives.

#32 Posted by Izzyjam (128 posts) -
@Dany: Makes sense for Dale's situation. He feels like he's, to use a phrase, too old for this shit. His wife's dead, and he hasn't mentioned that he had any children. If carrying on living means just barely surviving in a diseased world without the one person that he really cares about... might as well end it quickly.

Chuck Greene needs to get up in this bitch and teach these guys how to duct tape shit.

#34 Edited by Parabole (216 posts) -

I like the part where they start leaving and Robert DeNiro beats someone over the head with a bat. I think the show could use more of that. Oh wait...Sorry there was an Untouchables promo. AMC!

I found the finale to be okay. I like some of the possible ideas of what the secret Dr. Jenner reveiled. Expecially how every one is already infected. I remember how Dr. Jenner constantly sayed how it's all over. Thers no hope. IDK, we'll have to wait and see!

#37 Posted by Meowshi (2911 posts) -

I think that this is a series based on a pre-existed property and that asking people "what do you think will happen next?" seems somewhat silly given this fact. Anyway, the new season is starting today, so I'm going to avoid this thread like the plague. Seeya!
