The world has 198 countries... The US is only ONE of them, 21 March 2012
Author: Marcelo_Dos_Santos from Buenos Aires, Argentina

Why this strange summary? You'll find out later.

Last episode of Season 2, grand finale. Zombie apocalypse for the farm (its owner, that huge actor named Scott Wilson owns also the better and most solid acting work of the whole series, along Jeffrey DeMunn) and turning point for the characters' fate and the plot itself.

Very well directed, better written than other episodes of this season, and with a pretty trustworthy cast (along the two miracles noted above), this one represents a good finale. And, with an enigmatic new character presented in the end, we'll wait until October or so to know what's next.

Sadly, Frank Darabont never directed another episode but the Season 1 pilot. Pity, we want more of him, one of the finest movie directors alive in the whole world.

And... What happened to you, AMC? With this episode only running in the USA, you spoiled the entire script in your official blog! Are you crazy, people? America is only one of the 198 countries in this world, and in the most of them the finale was not aired when you published the spoilers! Dear readers: if you don't like to have the finale totally ruined, DON'T VISIT the official AMC blog until you see it.

Worth seeing: Yes, very much. But the blog administrators deserve something worst than walking un-death.
