OK I haven't watched it yet but will do tonight so let's start on all the spoiler-y comments!

So the governor shot him in the chest so he would come back? The dick.

Do you think merle was suicidal? I don't know why you'd go into that situation with no way out. Surely having an escape route planned would be the most important bit.

Poor Daryl. I'll miss Merle's character. He was a great antagonist and the actor who plays him is a joy to watch.

And yes, I think the Governor shot him in the chest on purpose. A shot in the head is a mercy killing to him and he wasn't going to show Merle any mercy. He wasn't in a situation where he could prolong the agony so the next best thing is to condemn him to walkerhood.

Finding it hard to care what happens to Andrea but I imagine she'll end up back in the prison crew for season 4.

I just watched it last night and cried so hard! (I'd had a shitty day and am awash with pregnancy hormones, but still...) I'm in America but don't have a TV so I wait and buy them on Amazon.

They actually made me like Merle that episode (I loved his interactions with Michonne and Carol) and then...oh, poor Daryl!

I will comfort him if need be. I'm willing to make that sacrifice. wink

CheerfulYank Thu 28-Mar-13 12:56:17

And what a bastarding bastard that Governor is. Just die already.

Quite like the cut of Tyreese's jib, I must say. Badass and moral.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-Mar-13 23:52:00

Ahhhh

Read briefly someone for shot

Must not look at this thread till Friday night / Saturday when I've watched

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-Mar-13 23:47:36

Agree guv shot in chest so that merle didn't die but came back

Felt so sorry for Darryl - quite happy to comfort him

'Blondes hikes bosoms'

Didn't get why he let michonne go but glad he did smile

Last one next week sad

CheerfulYank Sat 30-Mar-13 02:29:45

I think because of the things she said. I thought she diffused the situation admirably. <girl crush on Michonne> Also I think Merle, racist awful bastard though he was, would have a hard time actually hurting a woman. When the governor said he was going to "talk" to Maggie in a previous episode, Merle looked distinctly uncomfortable.

TwllBach Sat 30-Mar-13 08:46:58

Oh oh oh I'm watching it today! Did I miss something? I thought they had decided not to take michone to the governor?

I said on the other thread that I loved the exchange between carol and merle about being a late bloomer.

I'm only at the first break but I'm sure this is the most we've heard daryl speak all season. He manages to look so vulnerable and confused when talking to merle sad and he really didn't like the comparison between merle and Glenn and maggie and rick and michone.

CheerfulYank Sat 30-Mar-13 15:18:36

Merle knew Rick would change his mind about sending Michonne to the Governor (and he did) so he took her himself in hopes that the Governor would give them some time. He wanted to protect Daryl.

MrsJaqenHgar Mon 01-Apr-13 14:40:21

Oh. My. God.

Just seen the finale. Anyone else watched it yet?

Aspiemum2 Mon 01-Apr-13 15:53:26

Watching it tonight, hope it's a good one. Will avoid this thread until then!

CheerfulYank Mon 01-Apr-13 16:18:51

Watching it tonight but have already read spoilers. blush

JennyPiccolo Mon 01-Apr-13 22:51:21

Am halfway through an incredibly slow stream of it as clearly everyone in Europe is trying to watch it online simultaneously. TENSION.

MrsJaqenHgar Mon 01-Apr-13 23:11:18

I think the world is trying to watch Game of Thrones and grinding the Internet to a halt.

JennyPiccolo Mon 01-Apr-13 23:37:17

It felt like the end of a show rather than the end of a series. There wasn't really a cliff hanger.

M0naLisa Mon 01-Apr-13 23:48:37

I've just watched this online. Wow!! Didn't feel like the end of a series though. Felt more like the end of a show. Glad the governor has signed up for season 4. It should take off where season 3 ended.

CheerfulYank Tue 02-Apr-13 03:43:56

Ugh, the Gov is such a bag of dicks. JUST DIE.

JennyPiccolo Tue 02-Apr-13 07:04:58

Aye, I wish the gov would get tae fuck as well.its gone downhill since he turned up. I hate all the machine gunny flighty scenes where they shoot 10 bajillion bullets but nobody dies.

CheerfulYank Tue 02-Apr-13 07:24:16

Right? I mean, obviously one can't claim "that's so unrealistic" about a zombie show, but really, starting wars and whatnot?

M0naLisa Tue 02-Apr-13 07:29:19

It's cos he doesn't like not been the only leader but he fucked himself right up the arse in the finale!

redlac Tue 02-Apr-13 07:50:49

So disappointed in that season finale - last weeks episode with Darryl and Merle was much better.

MrsJaqenHgar Tue 02-Apr-13 09:47:28

I agree that it didn't feel like a finale but it did tie up a few loose ends while leaving plenty wide open for S4.

Poor Milton. I really liked his character. And I liked that he retained his decency to the end. He didn't go the power hungry, blood thirsty way of the Governor.

Andrea. Meh. If she'd spent a bit more time getting the pliers and a bit less time gassing, she'd have got out of there alive. Or if she'd knifed the Governor when she had the chance...However, her final scene with Michonne was well done. I almost shed a tear but that was more at Michonne's reaction than mourning the loss of Andrea.

Nice to see Rick's moral compass pointing back in the right direction. It'll be interesting to see the conflict between him and Carl as Carl becomes more and more affected by growing up in a ZA. His speech about killing the Woodbury kid to stop him killing one of them was exactly what the Governor said, wasn't it? Kill or be killed.

And why, oh why did Martinez not put a few rounds in the Governor's back when he had the chance? Neither he nor the other guy looked particularly thrilled at embarking on a road trip with the psycho so why didn't they just kill him? I guess we'll find out in S4.

Wickedgirl Tue 02-Apr-13 15:53:17

I didn't want merle or Milton to die. sad

I so would have shot the governor when he started shooting the "soldiers". I certainly wouldn't have got into the car with him afterwards

CheerfulYank Tue 02-Apr-13 17:35:22

I know! Martinez should have ended it right there.

RAFdad Fri 05-Apr-13 10:57:07
