Darryl thought they lived by a code and Joe immediately let his emotions over rule and used the code against Darryl by calling him a liar so the crew could beat him to death. He even told Rick pretty much it was at least something to live with.

I was almost positive they were going to make Carl close the door and then shoot him.

I was beginning to think the cannibals were Stormtroopers, with the way they were missing point blank shots...until I figured out they were herding them to a specific location. Interesting that they gave their weapons back. I would think "holding them for safekeeping, but welcome to get them at anytime" would've been a better plan.

I assume their escape hinges on the idea that the cannibals won't actually shoot them.
Rick obviously saw all of the bones and couldn't have missed that no one was shot.

I also didn't see anyone mention that the Walking Dead spinoff - rumored back in November - is now confirmed to be a prequel. New cast, new location and so on:

Also, there is someone who thinks that Breaking Bad is actually a prequel to The Walking Dead. Seriously.

I liked the finale, except for the flashbacks and lame last line. The flashbacks just seemed to sap the momentum out of any building dramatic tension. Everyone who has been watching the show since the beginning knows that Rick is conflicted about doing what it takes to survive in the post-apocalyptic world. We don't need 10 minutes of flashbacks reminding us.

Overall, this 4th season might have been my favorite, even if there were still some poorly executed parts. The character development and pacing of the plot was much better.

Rick going full zombie on the biker dude was so awesome and gives me hope for his mental toughness.

I think if you combined the best parts from 3 and 4 you would have 20 great episodes and not have to waste epsiodes restablishing the governor in S4 to get people to fight for him again.

What Delpen said. That would have been awesome. Also, if Dale had just let Andrea off herself early on, but I digress.

The talking dead preview the other night had a clip for season 5 of Tyrese and Carol. Some are speculating they know the rest of the group is being held in terminus and they are baiting the zombies to follow them to attack to plan an escape and realistically, that's the only way I can see them getting out before they get eaten is if there is mass confusion and an attack of thousands of walkers.

The comic book looks like it's getting interesting again, the last panel of the most recent issue is the most interesting it's been in months.

That TD special was a cruel reminder that it's still a long wait until the new season.

Saw that. That's a pretty good theory.

I get Kirkman updates in Goodreads - is Walking Dead published twice a month?

It is for the summer I think. A lot of comic books go every two weeks in the summer when school's out or did when I had them delivered by mail when I was a kid.
