Glad I'm not the only one here who liked the finale. Judging from other websites, you'd think this was the worst episode in the history of television or something! Lol
Even though it didn't play out exactly like we thought, I was still completely riveted the entire time-- whether by the suspense of the prison attack and what might happen there (made even better by the excellent score), the crazy and unpredictable behavior of the Governor, or the situation with Andrea and Milton.
And yeah, I was slightly annoyed that the Grimes gang were only trying to scare away
their attackers (when they surely knew the Governor would simply regroup and come back stronger), and in retrospect it IS a shame we didn't get a big showdown between Rick and the Gov after all the buildup... but what we DID get was so strong that I'm okay with those decisions.
