The Walking Dead > The Walking Dead Season Finale Review: Burning Down the House > Comments Page 4
Oh please.. talk to the hand.
Let's welcome the RICKTATORSHIP!
This was a good ending to a good season, I totally agree with the writer with the lil characters they need to give us something to love about them so their death wasn't just for nothing and poops and giggles, I think that Laurie getting upset with Rick for doing what she wanted him to do was just pathetic (HE HAD NO CHOICE)!!! We all knew Shane would have done something much worse. I want to know how they all have the zombie jean, I mean they kept the DR secret from us for a whole season so guess the how won't be explained or just have to wait another year to know, Rick started acting like Shane and thats not a good thing, I hope that everyone just realizes this guy has been saving our asses EVERYDAY and maybe we shouldnt judge him with what he did and we all wanted him to sercretly do all along and thats killing Shane, and why didnt anyone get upset with the boy I mean he knew better come one he is like 12 why does his mommy have to make sure he doenst leave she isnt GOD, if he wants
All i have to say is Lori needs shot you get mad at your husband who you cheated on with his best friend who wanted to kill your husband who ended up defending himself and killing your booty call wth O and try watching you kid once in a while instead on wondering about everyone else geeeze
Honestly I enjoyed the opening 20 minutes with he zombies and the confusion but if every episode was like that with a whole lot of zombie killing I'm convinced it would get boring and I'm pleased with he way the show deals with characters. I was pleased with the way the season turned out and I do believe it is a show that is going to keep getting better and better
I'm glad Daryl has sides with Rich and I thought he should of stuck up for Rick last night knowing that Shane was a liitle off and not only did he know he killed the boy. But he also new he killed Dale.
Michonne the Zombie slayer. Lol why not.
I was happy the way it turned out. Darryl lived!!!! My favorite character on the show.
Loris reaction to Rick telling her he killed Shane after he said that Shane brought him out there to kill him was beyond me. It was either him or Shane how is that do hard to understand!
Saving the boy that I actually felt more bad for then two people I don't care that died in last nights episode. Why save the kid perform surgery on him to keep him captive & then to eventually kill him. They should of just shot him when he was stuck on the fence. The kid may of been with the bad guys. But hes still a human being & he was influenced by bad people.
Loris character is all over the place. Shes cool and composed killing Zombies in one episode and then shes running around like an idiot because she can't keep an eye on her own kid. Lol she must be drinking the same kool aide Shane drank! But at least we have Andrea for a good female character that holds her own and doesn't panic under pressure & has grown over the pass 2 seasons.
I'm glad Daryl has sides with Rich and
right people talk about ricks bad tactical choices let's not forget these are ordinary people forced to make impossible choices that's why the concept is so unique yes lori is not a happy bunny but rick has told her something so devastating isn't her response understandable ricks decision was justified he didn't kill shane for himself he did it to protect everyone else his speech was also to make them understand that they need him people talk about bad dialogue oh please everyone is a critic "THE WALKING" DEAD" is shot like a independent movie it can have that realistic gritty slow pace which is a great quality
Herschel has become Ricks supporter alongside Darryl and I like him all the more for it. Carl? Yes, he is annoying, a brat and sometimes appears more trouble than what he is worth. I can't help but think that his parents needed to make time to sit and talk more in depth about life as they now know it and what is expected of him. On a regular basis. Sure, they are out running for their lives now. But when they were comfortable on the farm - why didn't it happen then?
Okay and lastly, I am as guilty of this as anyone - but I think if you are watching and following this show - even if you are critical of it, you must like it and therefore have to remember - it's a television show! It's entertainment! Sure we like it when they go the extra mile to make things accurate and factual! But me? I rather have more scared out of my chair zombie moments, than know details or how many rounds actually come out of a gun - any day! I can't wait for next season!!!!
It was a very interesting ending. Lori has become something else. She told Rick to be careful of Shane. She put that thought into Rick's head. She told Shane it was over between them and then tells Shane that she doesn't know who baby she is carrying after she told him that it was Rick's baby. She doesn't seem to know which man she wants and she can't keep track of Carl so what about the new baby? Andrea is definitely growing into a great character. She has matured and doesn't want to wait around for the "men" to take care of things for her. She wants to take control of her life as much as she possibly can. Will be nice to see how the helicopter, building, and the new character plays out in the new season come fall.
Carol would be awesome becoming a tough as nails Andrea-type and maybe they will make her one. Just remember, she isn't going to magically transform from a former submissive, abused wife into Wonder Woman just 'cause. I too am perplexed over her attitude about Rick (and how she manages to keep her hair so stylishly short!) and what she said to Darryl - but maybe she holds resentment to Rick loosing Sophia in the first place? As for the female characters strengths - sure we would love to see them stand up and fight like a man. But I think the reason is more along the lines of pre-zombie era, these women had a life where they could afford complacency to depend on men to care for them. This new world is forcing them to stand up and see the world differently. Not all will succeed and I think it makes Andrea and the newly mysterious Michonne - even better characters. If the writers were truly doing a mis-service in the representation of women, then Andrea and Michonne would not be bad ass.
Whoah! So much to note about this episode!
First - I know they need the $ backing - but during the finale why don't they try to do less commercial interruptions?!?!?!?
Okay, so Lori: yeah, her reaction was indicative of her actually wanting Shane to have succeeded. Good points made by sunrise. I think everyone is spot on - she is a total Lady Mac Beth and I would love to see her die, even if she carries the future of humanity. Course that future could just be mutant humans, after Ricks revelation of Jenner's whisper. But that aside, it was not the time to get all righteous and judgmental of Rick killing Shane. Her parenting skills are embarrassing. She doesn't watch her kid closely in a post-apocalyptic world, but then panics when she realizes that no one knows where he is. Someone slap her!
Jimmy was Beth's (Hershel's blonde daughter) boyfriend
Julia Rachel Barrett sums it up nicely.
It's kind of ironic to see suicidal Andrea from the Season 1 finale and this fighting-for-her-life-practically-running-an-entire-day-from-walkers Andrea from this Season finale. It's quite a big deal! She's transformed into such a developed character. Let's just hope they make an interesting storyline out of Andrea. I wouldn't want her to see all emotional and broken again, just because she was basically abandoned by the group...
With the revelation about the infection, I am ABSOLUTELY SURE this will come into play with Hershel -- a man of old age who can die at ANY TIME. This is probably my only prediction for the next season.
Let's all just get over Shane now, shall we? We'll never know if he really wanted to kill Rick and just had second thoughts, or if he was really just provoking him to get himself killed. I'm more inclined to think the latter, but who knows? I'm over it. He's gone. Rick is the new "dark" leader. But he won't go all
Its great show.what others out here don't understand" in real life there will be week scared people and stronger peoples.its a great show.its not all about killing zombies you know if it really happen in real life y'all will be hiding most of the times.lori is the only one I don't like. but there drama in real life; in groups there will aways be disagreement on how to do things.I love the show I just wish next season the women put on there grown up pants on.
Who was the person in the hood.... and what's going on in that big prison/facility... Ugggh I can't wait til the next season!
Julia, Shane INTENDED to murder Rick. That was his plan. He got his guard down when getting Rick's gun, never anticipating Rick would rush and stab him. Rick got the jump before Shane did, so Rick killing Shane is justified.
Now Lori, it was her fault that drove both of them into each other's throat. She antagonize both of them. Lori didn't love shane at all. It was the realization of she set the motion of him being killed. Her fault.
Also, Daryl still badass. Glad he is siding with Rick, and glad Rick is telling it like it is. No more pushing against Rick. You're either Team Rick, or not.
Thank you for telling me who Patricia was. Now would someone please tell me who Jimmy was? I agree about Lori - can't stand her and Carl is a brat. I look forward to fall to the new season.
Overall a rather disappointing season with flashes of brilliance, albeit in between long stretches of high school age drama. I agree with the previous posters, Lori is so irritating and unbelievable and her lack of parental oversight of Karl is criminal. What is up with her instigating the final showdown between Shane & Rick and then getting pissed when Rick takes care of it? I guess we are to just pass it off on the fact that she is pregnant and may be going through some emotional and hormonal upheaval but it really just doesn't work and winds up just being some bad dialog like so much other bad, unbelievable dialog in the show. You knew exactly who was going to get it in the walker attack and by the way-WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?? I did not understand the walkers travelling from Atlanta all the way to the farm because they saw a helicopter??? And while I think this new character seems promising how does keeping two zombies chained up and in tow act as a zombie repellent? They travel i
1. Andrea is the most well-developed and developing character right now. Not only is she competent, she kicks ass. Her character knocked it out of the park last night. I cannot wait to watch her in Season 3. Hershel had some pretty sweet kills himself.
2. Lori wanted Shane all along. She pushed Rick to kill him because she was afraid of the truth. And that's why she's all pissed off at Rick.
3. What happened to Shane (regardless of what happened to him in the graphic novel) was character assassination, pure and simple. Rick agonizes over killing Randall and decides not to kill him, but takes a perverse pleasure in killing Shane. Shane had all night to kill Rick but HE DIDN'T DO IT. If Shane really wanted Rick dead, Rick would be dead.
4. Somebody removed Daryl's personality. Now he's Rick's little buddy? Rick is the guy who handcuffed his brother Merle to a rooftop and gave the key to the guy (T-Dog) who had good reason to hate Merle. I want my go it alone Daryl back
The plan to defend the far was about the worst possible plan you could have had. I am no military genius, but common sense would dictate tat instead of all going off driving like mad people and shoot walkers at random, that they should have had more hit and run tactics. Line up and shoot a ton of zombies, then jump in vehicles and flank them at a weak spot, stop shoot more, repeat. Instead they all run off with no stinking plan. Who follows a leader that doesn't even have contingency escape plans? What if they walkers came when all were asleep? the idiotic stuff from this and last episode:
- Karl delivering an expert head shot to shane from 30 feet away that just misses his dad
- The defense of the farm
- Lori doing almost everything. hey writers who is this chick? she's not consistent from scene to scene let alone episode to episode
- T-dog. Is he in the dog house or something? They treat him with more kid gloves than they do with Karl
- I just can'r get over these guys not hav
While I too think it is strange that Lori would recoil from Rick so much after hearing he killed Shane in self-defense, I do remember she wasn't that upset until the end of Rick's monologue, when he told her Carl was the one who shot zombie-shane. Then, she doubled over. Maybe that's what she's really freaking out about - that her little boy was in that position, and did the shooting.
For Shane to just announce this is not a democracy anymore and everyone, as usual, has nothing to say, is just unrealistic to say the least. No one is going to let him dictate their lives and they can just ignore his mandates if they want. I doubt everyone would follow someone who demands to be in charge.
Only time I ever wanna see Carl and walkers on the screen are when they're taking a bite of that annoying twerps head , complete with that dorky Custer hat. Watching either Walkers or LOTR Orks get whacked.. is SO BORING !!!!!!!!! Wore my DVRs Fast Forward remote button out watching this episode.
Lori reacted the way she did because if someone had to die, she would rather it had been Rick than Shane. Remember, at the beginning of the series, RIck and Lori were having problems. I think she was sorry when Rick turned out to be alive from the start, although she couldn't admit that to anyone, perhaps even herself. Shane read her correctly all along. She's been playing Rick like Lady Macbeth while teasing Shane. She's very manipulative- she played them both, but now she's upset because she really wanted Shane.. Now that Rick has (hopefully) seen the truth about her, it will be interesting to see how that plays out next season. Hope she has a zombie baby.
As a woman, I am personally offended with the way the writers decided to portray most of the females in this show. With the exception of Andrea (who is tough, a survivor, a fighter) all the other women in the show are portrayed as overly emotional trouble makers. Lady Macbeths. Three times now we had woman try to convince the men they are with do something they don't want to do. Lori practically baiting her husband to take shane out, only to act disgusted with him even after he explains that shane set him up. HE SET HER HUSBAND UP!! Then Carol with Darryl, even after Rick did all he could do to find her daughter, mostlikely knowing he'd never find her alive and well. And Maggie trying to convince Glenn to run off.. WTF I want these women to be strong and self sufficient, do what needs to be done, just like their male counterparts. They better fix this next season
