Trivia

Jon Bernthal (Shane) came to the set to watch the shooting of the finale but since he was too emotional he watched from the woods on the farm property. See more »

Goofs

When the truck stops after Lori threatens to jump you can clearly see that the shots inside show there is a turning just behind the truck. However the long shot of it turning round has them on a straight road with no turnings. See more »

Jump the Shark Anyone?
6 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For me, this is about where the show jumped the shark.

Firstly it's revealed that they are "all" infected and that causes a tizzy!!

Why? It's doesn't make a bit of difference if they know that or not. Not one shred of difference.

They all see that once bitten the dead always rise, so this bit of knowledge does nothing and you have to wonder why it is even mentioned. The CDC should have said something else to him.

Next, the show becomes fragmented after this episode. Too many story lines too many characters to be following. It might work a little better if your marathon watching but when they skip so many months between seasons it doesn't.

And finally, they start to get way too dramatic introducing new characters -- uh the hooded one ???

Come on.

The show was so well written in the beginning. Things really took a wrong turn with the series after this episode.
