Posts Tagged ‘Walking Dead season 4 finale’

The season 4 Finale of the Walking Dead was a bone chilling episode that wanted me itching for more. After several disappointing episodes without Rick Grimes getting any kind of camera time, last night’s episode surly put things back on track.
Rick shares a very nice moment with Michone as they relax and sit by a fire. Surrounded by pitch blackness, the two are alarmed by a strange sound in the woods. Joe and guys from the mysterious house finally catch up to Rick. Clearly a similar scene taken right from the comic books, give or take a few changes, Rick looses his cool as Carl and Michone’s lives are threatened. Daryl comes out of shadows to vouch for Rick. He puts his own life on the line and is punished for not telling the “truth.” Rick and the others defend themselves and we see a side of Rick surface, which has been suppressed for very long time.
After a run in with the “Claimed” gang, and reuniting with loner Daryl Dixon, Rick and his crew find Terminus. Rick makes an important move by burrying some of his guns right off the property.
The crew seeks refuge, but within a few minutes Rick notices Hershal’s watch, Glenn’s riot gear and Maggie’s poncho. He demands to see his people and soon he is attacked and led to a containment unit. Once inside he discovers that Glen, Maggie,along with Sasha and some friends are captured as well. The official reunion was nothing but a questionable greeting, as the show ended with Rick saying that “these people don’t know who they are messing with.”
Now we are left to wait until October to find out what will happen.
Overall the finale was great, and I hope that the writers stay focused on Rick. They must not forget that this is Rick’s journey and that the experiences are being told from his point of view. In addition to the group being reunited,
There were some important flashbacks that showed Hershal’s impact and influence on Rick. It was nice to see him be part of the finale. It gave us a chance to remember him again, and it gave Rick a chance to open up and really embrace who he is as a person and keep the cycle and balance between humanity and survival.
Next Season! I’m counting it down!!
Now we just have to survive the wait!
