Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

A good season finale
22 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The episode starts with a flashback to Shane trying to save Rick amid pandemonium at the hospital. We then see the survivors enter the CDU but Edward Jenner may not be the saviour they are hoping for.

Once again the cast is excellent again. As is the direction.

Andrew Lincoln is again the main man while Norman Redus is excellent, as are Melissa McBride, Steven Yeun and Jon Bernthall

Jeffrey DeMunn as Dale shares a great scene with Laurie Holden's Andrea towards the end.

I have loved everything about this show except Sarah Wayne Callies. A great first season. Tip of the cap to all involved.
