Did You Know?

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 »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): While Rick, Hershel and Carl drive away from the attacked farm, Hershel is still watching his occupied farm from the car's back window. Doing so, he should easily notice Andrea running toward the car while they were escaping the farm.See more »

Beside the Dying Fire, and into the blackness..., 19 March 2012
Author: botrytis from Hungary

Firstly I'm gonna state here, that finally we saw some turns in this episode included within: I'm gonna mention the most obviously main turn is the "Rick's darkside", how he getting turned into a bully, getting sick of being the man of power, but i'll return to this phase.

I'm not a big fan of zombie franchise/style, coz' it's illogical in some ways, but of course we cannot complain about it, coz' this style is maintained in order to amuse the audience. I really liked the beginning of this part, we had a little perspective about the zombies daily-life and behavior, also it was funny how they managed to get along that way to the farm.

The action parts were okey, as they use to be, not really chiselled, but it's understandable from that view that this is a TV show.

But, of course then, the emphasis is on the characters/personalities. Finally, we got our Shane killed, but unfortunately the outcome of it is not really positive, how possibly would it be. My -and I guess I'm writing in many peoples name- My favorite character is Rick, he's the hero of course, but what is likable is the moral and wise personality of him, but in this case now, after many terrible things got happened, he had turned into something else, He starting to have lack of patience, and respect from others, somehow he starts to lose the control over the party coz' its their weakness. Poor guy, I feel really sorry for him, but of course, it's not possible to be the perfect all the time, right? Even Heroes got their bad mood. But mostly what's the annoying thing, that Lori turned her back from him? What the hell? Well Carl too, but he's a kid, it's obvious, but the woman, who always trusted in his husband, and she had the reason, everyone had its reason to trust in him, now, she just acting like she isn't the one who has to be blamed for this outcome? ahhh... I'm really starting to hate her...

Anyway, the show is impressive in its own way, I love the intense character changing in it, so I'm looking forward to watch this show next fall I guess.
