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.
