Besides the governor, one would think so...

Hmm, so pretty much everyone in Woodbury besides the gov. :-b

How about little Carl becoming the next menace? If I was Rick, I'd have beaten the kid's ass for all that lip!

But the kid was right (and that was the highlight of that rather underwhelming finale)

Absolutely was right. They told that guy to drop the gun, he didn't, so bang. I totally agree with Carl on that one.

Nod, thought it was pretty str8 forward too. You give the enemy an opportunity but he didn't comply. In the Talking Dead, 50% of the votes agreed with us in regards to waxing the boy.

Sluggers, no doubt the boy was right about dad's failure to act has led to undesired consequences in the past. However, as a father to what, a 10 year old, are you going to let him talk to you like that?

One thing I was curious about was why did the writers decide to not show the Governor again in the episode? Where are we to assume they went after his shooting spree?

Pretty weak ending to season 3. No cliffhanger at all. I was hoping for a "who short JR" moment. The big war that had been building for weeks, was really weak. They should of ended it before opening the door to Andrea. Is she dead or a alive type of thing.

Oh and I agree, Carl should of shot the kid.

I don't understand why the Governor didn't go back to Woodbury after he shot 25 of his towns people and just say that they were massacred by the prison or something ... instead he leaves the town behind?

Kid didn't drop the gun and Carl was right to shoot him, but he's a smart ass punk and future serial killer. Don't like him much.

Anti climactic finale. Bringing everyone back to the prison? Why not send a couple people back for those at the prison and hole up in Woodbury?

My zombie shows need more realism to them.

I just assumed he was headed back to the town eventually.

Yeah, he did the right thing, but I don't dislike him - he's just a bad actor, not unexpected because he's a kid.

Hmm. Too many unknowns at Woodbury? I dunno, good question.

Good luck with that.

I figured there wasn't really anything left at Woodbury. Anyone capable of handling a gun was with him already, save Tyrese and his sister. Everyone left at Woodbury was old or incapable of fighting. I am okay with him being a rogue threat somewhere out there.

I thought this initially too, but with the Governor still out there I'm not sure I'd want to hold up in Woodbury either. He built the place, he knows all the ins and outs and odds are his sole purpose in life is to kill Michonne/the rest of the group since he destroyed everything else he had. Better to stick with what you know rather than walk into the Gov's world.

I don't go to Woodbury because it's harder to defend and I have a lot of dependent people.

Blame the bad show genes. :-b

As far as taking the Woodburians in, Rick Grimes has now taken the first step in repopulating the world.
