Rick, Carl and Michonne are getting ever closer to Terminus. They've had a rough time on the road and can only hope that what they find there is better than what they have now. In the night, they are taken prisoner by Joe and the others. It's clear that Rick is the man they've been hunting but Daryl tries to explain that they are good people. Joe won't hear any excuses. When it appears that Carl is about to be raped, Rick shows just how violent he is prepared to be to defend his family and friends. When they finally reach Terminus everything seems to be order - until Rick sees someone using the watch Hershel gave Glenn. Written by garykmcd

Not Quite The Ideal Season Finale
31 March 2014 | by sharpcourseSee all my reviews

Here I have to say its good to see Hershel again.

First Rick goes into prison nostalgia then we find out the reason for that soon enough. We have a contestant for the most far-fetched recovery from a group of marauders in the scene where Joe's group attempt to punish Rick for killing their friend. That escape was played quite unconvincingly. Its salvaged by Daryl though. How we have seen unquestionable loyalty from him towards Rick over the course of this series but that scene was another structure for his character, further emphasized by the "you are my brother" phrase from Rick.

Oh terminus. Men without guns asking men with guns to lay down their weapons. That's gotta give you a bad feeling. Quite mediocre episode this is. I looked at the time at the end wondering -is this it-? This episode could have been replaced with the mid-season finale "too far gone", all they need is a little storyline reshuffling after all nothing much has happened from then up till now.

This season and sometimes the entire show just takes a brilliant premise and drags it on to God knows where. The only reason I look forward to next season is cause I wonder how Rick's gonna prove "they are screwing with the wrong people".

I'm still undecided.
