Enjoyed the finale, but I agree it could have been better.

Not sure I like Rick bringing those people back, but it sets up a great long term feud between him and Carl.

Will be good to see who joins sides when that starts rearing it's ugly head.

This was previosuly mentioned, but Carl will begin to hit a grow spurt very soon. I wonder how they handle this?

I know I wasn't the only one who was rooting for Milton to hurry up and get Andrea...she really needed to go.

I'm not opposed to the Gov getting away at the end. At least next season he will be in full evil mode. His evil personality has already evolved, we only got to see 1/2 of an episode of it.

I am a fan of the "character development" episodes, like the one with Morgan. I enjoyed the pacing this season.

i'm thinking they will take advantage of it and up the conflict between him and Rick.

The people who bash on the show really don't understand what the Walking Dead is all about. Yes, I do agree that the ending was disappointing but that's ONLY because it was advertised as being some amazing epic showdown. From a subjective point of view what they ended up doing makes the show a lot more interesting. Sunday night's episode is the first time we've seen a true comic book version of the Governor. All of the people hating and saying that he should have died must not be a fan of character arcs or great villains because they've done a lot of great stuff with Governor. I also find it very funny how the complaint history for this show goes

Season 1 - Not enough character development

Season 2 - NOT ENOUGH ACTUN 2 MUCH TALKIN

Season 3 part 1 - Too many deaths

Season 3 finale - OMG WTF NO ONE DIED

I really think that some people just bitch for the sake of bitching

First line is a bold statement.

A LOT of people disagree with it, actually.

A large number of the people who DON'T like it right now, probably have more of an idea of what Walking Dead is about than those who like it. The problem with the Gov is they ruined him many shows before the finale, to the point where he wasn't that interesting as a villain, and no one cared if he survived etc. Same with Andrea. Most people hate both characters, and then you have a finale where you kill over the most hated character (sans Lori, maybe)? Then you have Rick not learning ANYTHING from the first 3 seasons and loading up a bunch of strangers on a bus and taking responsibility for them? It comes down to AMC trying to extend this show for a ton of seasons and also the constant changes with show runners, etc. This show can't find an identity, it changes each 5-7 episodes. In the end, people are upset because they have squandered so much potential for an amazing show.

TBQH the only way they can salvage my waning respect for the show is by either starting season 4 as being months and months, maybe even almost a year, after the end of season 3. The group has left the prison, or is getting ready to, because most of the Woodbury refugees have been killed/died off because of age or something...Maybe they are just going to give the survivors the prison and Woodbury to do with what they will, but Rick's group decides to move on in search for a safer place. Also, we'll need to see the Governor get into a car crash (Martinez and Ed Reed dead in their seats) and crawl out of an overturned vehicle only to be mobbed by a horde of walkers and ripped limb from limb.

Or something along those lines...

I don't really care for the group to remain at the prison. I want the Governor dead. Both of these things need to happen FAST.

I kinda really want Judith dead too, as dark as that seems, but this really is Rick and Carl's story.

The prison was a great idea for them and a good storyline, but it appears that all the interesting shots and plot devices it offers have been explored, so yeah, lets move on.

But I disagree with Zaximus takeaway regarding letting the strangers in, that seems to be the entire point of Ricks arc this season - that shutting off his humanity has proven more disastrous for the group.What good is survival in and of itself?

To me, not being a comic reader, it seems that all they've done is taken what has been described as a totally evil villain from the get go and gave him a backstory that he became evil from which is going to make him more interesting long term instead of just some crazy killer pirate guy.

I must be an easy target for this show, as the only real bitch of mine I can recall is the farm episode from last season where they felt compelled to put in the well zombie so we'd still know the end of the world was going on during the episode.

to be honest, i've often wondered while reading the comics, if rick isn't the true villain in the story
