Having been allowed into the CDC building, the survivors meet Dr. Edwin Jenner who appears to be the only survivor in the facility. There is plenty of food and drink and the surroundings are comfortable. A drunken Shane tries to reconcile with Lori Grimes, but she will have nothing to do with it. Dr. Jenner shows them how the infection works to reanimate a dead corpse but admits that he hasn't been able to make any advance on defeating it. Despair sets in at the realization that there is no cure for the plague that has enveloped them. Jenner has his own plans for the future leaving the survivors only a few minutes to leave the facility. Not everyone chooses to leave however. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Robert Kirkman said that this is the only episode he regrets because it tells the survivors about the rest of the world rather than learning first hand. See more »

Amazing season finale!
5 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sadly, The Walking Dead has already finished its great season, and it did so with a bang!

The episode lets up look back into the CDC and into the headquarters. We find out not everything is how it seems, and that the group might actually be in danger. Without revealing too much, this was a great ending to the season. We also say goodbye to a character and I was really glad another two characters ended up not dying. I do not want to wait for next year, 6 episodes was too little! However, I will be waiting for the next season and to see what the show brings us! Long live the Walking Dead!
