I disagree with the sentiment of this article. The ending I got was one I felt I very much had a hand in and the one conclusion that the entire season was driving towards for my Clementine.
The episode is problematic in spots and a lot of that stems from the characters being more poorly defined than in S1 (outside of a few exceptions). Bonnie and Mike are all over the place and I don't think I had the ability to interact with them as I'd like to compared to Kenny and Jane.
Anyways, solid season with a big highlight (Ep. 3) and more than worth the price of admission.
