Just a great setup / cliffhanger as well .. we have the Hooded Stranger and a prison .. Rick insisting that there is a place they will find that they can hold up in somewhere, and then ending with the wide shot of what looked like a maximum security prison .. there is hope yet for the "small band of survivors" ... can't wait for next season ..
IMO this was not a solid season unless you really enjoyed endless rehashes of stuff we already knew. The last 2-3 eps sort of saved it but the first half was pretty much wasted on me.
Lori and Carl are just worthless at this point, I don't care what happens with either one of them. Not that anything will and I'm sure the baby will be a big part of next season, but there it is.
Agreed that the ridiculous headshot accuracy was unrealistic, but there's not a lot of realism in this show anyway. Plus it's TV.
Not sure why they went with shots of downtown ATL with no explanation, they were just thrown in for future effect I guess. I didn't know anything about the prison and what it means to them based on that shot.
Glad they killed off the Herschel redshirts, maybe T-Dog will get some more love from the writers now. I thought something would happen to a major character but unless you count Andrea there wasn't anything (and she's not dead).
All in all I'm very happy they finally left the farm, and there's promise for the next season if they take the fan comments to heart and really get on with the story.
