Watched the walking Dead finale over the weekend. Downton Abbey take note – now that’s a finale. None of your ‘everything is great and everybody’s happy so let’s arbitrarily kill someone off’ rubbish.
The Governor, for the first time in the series proved he wasn’t all hype, at least in my eyes. I didn’t buy him as a bad ass character who could fight off a mob of zombies single handed, but I totally bought it when he went numb and just started killing – everybody.
And seriously, Andrea, you had it coming, but one zombie, you couldn’t even fight off one Milton zombie with both your hands free and a pair of pliers as a weapon? Sure, I get it, you were barefoot but that didn’t stop Bruce Willis taking on a bunch of terrorist bank robbers. I’m guessing your character committed seppuku out of pure embarrassment.
However, not everyone enjoyed that finale as much as I, apparently . . .
Post Script: in response to the columnist’s assertion in the final line of his article that he fears the show will have “lost a good portion of its audience in Season 3” – the midseason premiere was 18% higher than the season premiere. Comparatively, the season finale was up 43% from the midseason finale.
David Aronchick, you’re an idiot.
