****SPOILER ALERT. PLEASE DO NOT VIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE MID SEASON FINALE, OR IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE COMICS AND WANT IT SPOILED*****
S’up y’all!! Zell here after a wild Sunday night of The Walking Dead Season 4 Mid Season Finale. Lots of action followed by lots of story line development paved the way for the gang to exit the prison, however in separate groups. The only thing that AMC’s Walking Dead achieved is doing what last season’s finale failed to do; excite. People are talking, and mainly about the millions of questions that Sunday’s episode begged. In saying that, the 5 biggest questions personally leading into the second half of Season 4 are listed below. Make sure to take the poll below and like us here at PTVP.
1. Is the group going to join back together at the Alexandria Safe Zone?
Rick’s group is now split into several groups. The folk from Woodbury whom escaped on the bus with Glenn, Rick and Carl running up the hill away from the carnage, and the kids, Beth, Tyreese, Michonne, Maggie and Daryl’s presence left in mystery. Similar to Season 2 after Hershel’s farm, the group is split and more than likely will regroup soon after. The question is where? There are no local landmarks and the groups evacuation plans were never discussed. I am gathering that after Sunday night’s finale, the comic is being followed once more. After the prison, we hit the road for a bit, before arriving at the Alexandria Safe Zone, where the comic book is currently at. I see the group joining together back there in a safe community. Will the creators do this though? They really don’t have nothing to work with if so. We will find out in February I suppose.
2. Who can follow up from The Governor?
The Governor is dead. Punched by Rick, stabbed by Michonne, and shot by Lilly. The question is, with The Governor dead, who is the next antagonist going to be? After Shane, Governor did well to carry the series as the villain you love to hate. Even love to love in many cases. Will there be an immediate threat? Or will there be some form of peace for a while? I remember vividly the proceeding antagonists after the prison were the cannibals, followed by the baddest dude in the world; Negan. We don’t know if this will happen, or even if they hold out until Season 5 which has been signed up for. Simply put, who can follow up from David Morrisey’s Governor?
3. Is Rick’s daughter Judith still alive?
Lots of controversy here peeps. The rocker was covered in blood, the baby was missing, and her family was devastated. But is Judith really dead? Sure there was a lot of blood, yet anyone taking a head shot could have filled that empty cradle. Beth, whom was Judith’s primary carer, ran off the bus for a mystery purpose. Was that to rescue Judith? Then the other kids in the complex. Did they go back after saving Tyreese to help Judith out? On the following episode of Talking Dead, there was no mention of Judith’s death. I get the feeling she still lives. I may be wrong, however the second half will elaborate more than I can.
4. Will we see Carol again?
I sure hope so. The impending meeting between Tyreese and Rick in regards to his girlfriend’s killer was about to happen before The Governor destroyed the prison. Tyreese will find out no matter what eventually. The question is, will we see Carol again? And if so, how will Tyreese react to the news of her doing the “evil” deed? Unlike the comics, Tyreese and Carol have both survived the prison and are both in uncharted waters now. The story development for both characters will be great and I cannot wait.
5. Will the second half be better than the first?
We have got the ending we wanted at the prison. It’s over. I can honestly say this season has been living up to the hype to date. The question is similar to last season, can we keep up the momentum? Will we get the best complete season since the first? We will be getting new characters in Abraham and Eugene (this will be great). Lilly and Tara will also be in some way still be around and joining Rick in the future. The Woodbury sick survivors are also still alive. We have a lot of survivors to work with here. I sure hope that Robert Kirkman and crew give us one hell of a home stretch for the season by building up a few of these characters. The loss of Hershel hurt. Now it is time to run with the ball and make new characters we love. Also, don’t forget about the zombies…
