Another season over. Another Sseven or eight months to wait. This season has had a few detractors but to me, this is what the comics and I guess my view of the world, post zombocalypse, would probably be like.
There was a nice bit at the end about where the pigs came from making the flu outbreak all their fault.
With the death of Hershel (which was a great loss for the story and pretty inevitable) the groups moral compass died. Hershel had the best attitude to what is going on although maybe not as practical as Carol. That said adjusting to the realities of the world you find yourself might just keep you Alive long enough. We still have Mr Everyman in the form of Rick who seems to go from shell shock to kick arse quite rapidly. I suspect that's what most people would be like.
Where the got really good for me was when they went on the road. Carol shooting Lizzie was perhaps the most powerful single moment in the series. Come to think of it, I am struggling to remember another moment on TV that had me on the edge of my seat like that. The episode Still, that featured Daryl and Beth was pretty good. Daryl is starting to go down a great story arc.
Still, someone has to go. The Walking Dead wouldn't be the show it is without a few dramatic deaths of main characters. As you can see from the picture from the end of season one below, lif expectancy is not good.
What about the next season? Well "after dinner", will the Governor be coming back? I certainly hope so. You can't beat a good bad guy, in this series at least.
Anyone with specific recipes or serving suggestions for any of the characters, please feel free to make a comment at the bottom.
