Andrea: Don't pull this, Dale.
Dale Horvath: I'm not pulling anything. If you're staying, I stay too. He's right, we know what's waiting for us out there. I don't want to face it alone.
Andrea: Dale, get the hell out. I don't want you here.
Dale Horvath: Too bad. See, you don't get to do that, to come into somebody's life, make them care and just check out. I'm staying. The matter is settled.

A Great Season Finale!
16 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The final episode of Season 1 is a good one and despite the fact it doesn't have a great cliffhanger, I still want more. I liked this episode because we learn more about the actual virus and whether there is a cure or not. And there is a good balance between the relaxing, quiet time and the good, tense action. The first half is story-building and the second half is the action as they are trying to flee the CDC.

This episode, "TS-19", is about how the gang is allowed to enter Jenner's facility and for the first time in a long time, they get to enjoy real food, wine, and hot showers. But as they learn more about Jenner and the virus, they realize it may not be the safest thing to do staying at this facility.

Overall, this is a solid ending to an amazing first season. I can't wait to check out more of the adventures of Rick Grimes. This is a really hooking show and it's not all about those zombies. While altering between a quiet start and an action-packed ending, this episode manages to be an effective finale. I rate this episode 9/10.
