[SPOILERS] TV: The Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale S04 Summary

My review of the mid-season finale of season04 of The Walking Dead!

by

Hershel Is Dead!

That's right. Hershel is dead. The cliffhanger has been released and now we  have to wait TWO months for the continuation. This is something none of the fanbase ever wanted to see of course after the death of beloved Dale!

A brief explanation of the episode if you've missed it:

After "The Governor" killed the leader and the leader's brother, Brian (The Governor) decided to take charge of the group. Since his previous battle with Rick and his group in season 3, Brian still kept his grudge. He pin-pointed the group's location still being at the prison, He rounded up all of the group and their fire-arms and went to attack. He warned the group that if by sundown they're not gone, he will have to use force to get them out so he could have the prison for himself. Obviously Brian didn't go without any leverage, he had Michone and Hershel as hostages. Brian ended up chopping Hershel's head off which made Rick angry and caused him to shoot at Brian. Michone stabbed Brian through his heart and left him to die. 

This adds to the list of the deceased:

  • Amy
  • Jim
  • Jacqui
  • Otis
  • Dale Horvath
  • Shane Walsh
  • Lori Grimes
  • Judith Grimes
  • T-Dog
  • Merle Dixon
  • Axel (Prisoner)
  • Duane Jones (Rick's Finders in S01)
  • Andrea
  • Violet (Prison's Farm Pig)
  • Karen
  • David

In February the death toll will be sure to increase due to the fact that in the end of the episode all the zombies started rushing into the prison, not all the survivers have left.

Hopefully, Rick, Carl and the rest will be all safe and find a new shelter.

RomanTea is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

    I have no issue with posting TV stuff here, BUT the entire article is a single BIG spoiler.

    As a mid-season cliffhanger, you could have detailed the season up until now and thoughts on the various directions the show has gone and could go.

    Instead - you post one spoiler.

    The articles aren't totally restricted to gaming, others (myself included) have written about comic books and so on. Speaking of comics, I'm glad to see The Walking Dead get back to its comic book roots by finally bringing in the tank and the fall of the prison.

    I'm also glad they were true to the comic in having Lilly be the one who killed the Governor.

    They've been dropping in some easter eggs... if you go back 2 episodes and read the messages on the side of the building that the Governor passed, you'll see them mention Negan. If you haven't read the comic... and you thought the Governor was evil.... well just wait... LOL.
