What a horrible season finale... Amirite?
yeah i was a bit disappointed too. was expecting more in terms of tragedy and deaths of the main group. When you consider season 1 finale with the cdc, season 2 with the farm burning down, the death of dale which was very dramatic with the music, barnaggedon with carols daughter, all which were much more dramatic. With merle many weren't not tied or emtionally attached to the character and even through redemption the killing of zombie merle by his brother brought little remorse. then the season finale had another pair saying goodbye to each other, many were getting tired of andrea and were expecting here death anyway, , so again, more so the same from a sorrow life, with very little effect.
i did like the underlying theme of "killed or be killed" as spoken by the governor earlier. Little carl who explains all this could of been avoided if rick just killed the governor without hesitation as he did with the young boy in the woods. this was repeated with Andrea, who seemed to flounder back and forth between her alliance to her old group and the thought of saving the governor and its people by playing peace keeper. She hesitated and watched as milton died with no sense of urgency, inevitably not being able to save herself from zombie milton.
again not as dramatic as they made it out to be. im sure they have plans on the governor coming back later in season 4, as the expanded group (woodbury residents) seem like zombie fodder as there is to much to focus on and may hinder the character development of the main core. Again a bit of a let down but maybe more so the fault of the media build up.
