On the season three finale of The Walking Dead, the war between Woodbury and the prison comes to a head and we say goodbye to another main character.
If andrea hurried up a little rather than stare at Milton for 20 minutes she would have made it out soon enough to get rid of him before he turned...
That's what you call bad directing. The writers ultimately wanted her to die(I'm fine with that choice). The director is supposed to present her death in a way that's believable. They failed. Nobody in that position would have been doing what Andrea did. They would have been moving as fast as they could. They should have either made Milton turn sooner, made her drop the pliers more often, and/or made it harder for her to break free of the cuffs(or whatever was on her wrists).
I figured she kept talking to Milton to keep him alive for longer
Ugh. That episode was just so bad. Started great...That ending tho.
Yeah, kinda went downhill after the governor went ape shit.
**SPOILERS** Agreed, the first scenes were really great and i thought that the milton being stabbed was just the appetizer. after that there was... none.
it was very good last season EP, they ended it very well. The Governor was only dragging things down way too much, he still had lots of guns and power for another entire season of just more boring "war" between them. And he was obviously crazy, his head was already in another place, he only cared about his daughter and she was no more. If he stabbed his best friend he going ape crap on those people is nothing and it was better than the ending everybody was expecting, him getting killed by Rick. And beside, he already knew he didn't have enough men to fight Rick's group and that he was gonna lose. All he had were 3 men at most and the rest hardly knew how to use a gun. The only thing I didn't like was the woman that survived because the entire plot progression hanged in a thread.
I have a mix feeling after watching this finale. there are a lot of things i liked but of course there are some that were a bit of a letdown. I knew that the governor will survive for the next season because season 3 was just the getting to know him part, he became dark on the last few episodes which was really good and i expect him to be more darker but as much as i like that to happen I still didn't expect him to gun down his own people. I also dont know what to say about andrea's death, she's one of my favorite's in the comics and did a lot more things but in this series they already killed her character.
**Spoilers** Wasn't really big on this episode, although there were some aspects that were done well (like Carl killing that boy and his dad trying to bring him "back to humanity" by bringing in all those people. But for a finale, it really didn't go anywhere. There were many episodes this season that were WAY more impactful. I am glad they aren't following the comic though.
I'm glad Andrea died. She could have ended it all but she choose not to. I remember thinking at the time anything that happens after this is on her. And by the way, theres no way you can cut through handcuffs with a pair of crappy pliers. And Carl might be an icy little pr*ck but I'm with him, that kid was just lowering his gun way to slowly and was even pointing it in their general direction. And they had alot more to lose. Had he dropped it immediately Carl wouldnt have fired. And what he said to Rick was all true. Its a different world now and you have to live with the consequences of your actions, or lack of action, and if anything Carl is the only one making decisions without his emotions clouding them.
As someone of who has been reading the comics prior to even the announcement of the show, I appreciate it moving in an unpredictable direction. Likes: The Psychological suggestions regarding Carl (almost inheriting Rick's now lost psychological state) The TV Governor's progression in to the evil he is in the books. Despite weak Directing (during the chair sequence), I felt Andrea's death was, regardless, unexpected, and as someone who believed her negative reputation to be massively exaggerated, somewhat disheartening. I don't like how people overly complaining about female characters seems to be affecting if the actress or director/writers' opinions, leading to them being written off. I believe her actual death sequence was very well handled, and possibly the most emotional of the series. TYREESE has now joined the group, hopefully the writers will do him justice, as they have recently with Michonne. Rick returning to his leadership status and losing his psychological visions. Dislikes: I see the saving of the Woodbury people only leading to loads of unprogressed characters, of which will essentially become easy pickings for the writers to kill off (in other words, lots of Axyl and T-Dogs). Andrea dying (I always found people's complaints to be unjustified and immature).
The episode was horrid. They've been building the confrontation for weeks on end and almost nothing happened. After their impressive initial assault with grenade launchers and a .50 caliber mounted gun, everyone leaves the vehicles without setting up a perimeter and cram 30 strong into a single tight corridor only to run at a few flashbangs. Glen and Maggie force a full scale retreat, despite Glen hiding behind a file cabinet (yes the same ALUMINUM file cabinets that wouldn't possibly stop a bullet from any guns the opposition was carrying.) But that's OK, it didn't need to since NO ONE EVEN SHOT BACK. The whole things was under 12 mins and that's with an unrelated scene and walking around the deserted cell blocks. As for the rest if Andrea spent 1/2 the time working on the cuffs that she spent staring at milton she would have easily lived. But shes been stupid all season so it was time for her to just die and be done. And why not stand around and watch when the governor shoots all your comrades like the 2 brain-dead lieutenants. No need to do anything, lets see how this plays out... since they're totally unconcerned with their own safety. OK...hes good now, I'll hop in the truck. There's so much non-sense in one episode I barely scratched the surface. Worst of all the gov. has been a tired played-out character for 1/2 the season and now at some point they're gonna bring him back. I know they've had some shake-ups with personnel, but they need to get their sh** back on track and fast or rating are going to plummet this fall.
