With wolves lurking, do u remain a Lamb or become a Lion?
30 March 2015 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

This is not just a season finale but it is the best episode of the walking dead, in my own opinion at least. Fantastic set pieces from start to finish, not a single plot contrivance and there was a sense of dread as well as closure that I'm sure is going to amaze the viewer while watching this epic finale. For the first time in a while, it truly seems the writers know what they are doing.

There's definitely a lot going on in this episode. The characters had a lot to conquer and not a single character thread is wasted. Nice re- introduction to Morgan. A most welcome ally and where did he learn to fight like that? Lennie James was a delight to watch.

The directing was nicely done. Writing was fantastic and forced dialog which we have come to associate with the walking dead is hopefully a thing of the past if this episode is anything to go by. In a nuanced fashion, a lot of the cast stepped up their acting in this episode. Melissa Mcbride is becoming more menacing by the day as her character Carol is far cry from who we knew in seasons 1 and 2. Andrew Lincoln owned the episode and shone delightfully. Steven Yeun once again was in top form. I'd even like to make special mention to Seth Gilliam, though Father Gabriel is most presumably everyone's least favorite character right now (Wolf in sheep's....)

The Letter W, and what's its significance, stood out in episodes prior. Without giving much away I'd like to state that a new threat lies outside of Alexandria as well as inside. Moment of truth at the end of the episode and in reference to our letter W is while dealing with a threat of Wolves outside as well as Wolves in sheep's clothing inside, you either chose to be just a Lamb or rise and rise again until Lambs become Lions.

This is brilliant rendering of episodic TV. 10/10
