    Yes. Of course they can. If the show gets old and boring.

    If there isn't some complete, definitive, resolution isn't going to cause a huge fan revolt and isn't going to cause a large number of them to just quit watching the show. The entire series will be a series of unresolved issues that once they're resolved will simply lead into new ones.

    Will a few quit watching, like R2A did because they killed of T-Dog? sure. By and large will they lose a huge chunk? No.

    Because they killed T-Dog? Seriously? The character was just a filler. He has nothing to do with the story except killing a few zombies and burning the bodies afterwards.

    Speaking of burning some zombies...was it ever fully revealed who BBQ'd the pit zombies?

    At this point i just want the Governor to go crazy and kill everyone...except Carl who faces him and a dramatic duel and pulls off a stunning victory, shooting him right between the eyes.

    Then the show ends.

    :mchammer: Doing the happy dance. So glad she is gone. One of the worst characters ever, and if she hadn't stopped every 5 seconds to stare at the guy for 10 minutes she would have escaped at the beginning of the episode. Really a rather blah episode.

    Carl has turned into one of the more interesting characters on the show. Too bad the writers have decided to make him develop off-screen. Took, what 20 minutes before we found out why he was angry to start off the show? I thought I missed something.

    I also felt he was totally justified in shooting that kid from Woodbury. His speech to Rick at the end was excellent I thought.

    Also disappointed how the prision turned into an old folks home/day care.

    I love how these guys never miss the heads of the walkers, but as soon as they get into a gun battle at the prison no one can hit anything.

    What an unsatisfying conclusion to the season. Pathetic that they left the Governor open-ended, and we have no clue what the group is doing.

    It seems like they are setting themselves up in the prison, and not moving along, which, in my eyes, is dumb. It just sets us up for more of the same next season, just with some new, older, characters.

    All those new people are just bait for the governor, just like the prison crew. Someone has to die after all.

    The kid/young guy Carl killed, was that suppose to be the asthma kid that Karen mentioned to the Gov in a past episode?

    I know that the Gov is crazy, but to shoot the only people you have left?(minus his two lieutenants) And where did they go after that? I would have thought he would have went back to Woodbury. (before Rick got there) He just left?

    Also why didn't Ricks group just take over Woodbury. It's much safer than the prison from what we've seen (and full of supplies) and an easier life on those older people they brought back. Where are the supplies? I would have raided it especially when you brought back a bunch of older people that will need to be fed and in need of water.

    I don't think Ricks group was trying to hit the people from Woodbury. They were just trying to force them out of the prison. At one point I think someone shouted get out of here!

    I didn't think the episode was as strong as the final episode for seasons 1 or 2, but I was pleased overall.

    I didn't expect the Governor to be knocked off, so there wasn't any disappointment with that.

    I did expect a bunch of Woodburyians to get taken out-- just didn't think the Governor would be the one that did it.

    The prison group's "counter-attack" was kinda weak. I thought for sure they would have hit the vehicles as they left the prison... but I guess they didn't have to with the Governor around.

    Woodbury has a lot of weak points, I can see why the group didn't want to stay there. The prison is much easier to defend.

    Several good character exchanges, I thought the best one was Tyrese exchange with the Governor about not wanting to participate in the attack.

    You could sense the Governor wanting to "snap" then and shoot him, but held off just enough. The "Thank you" was well done.

    I have to say that I was disappointed with season 3 of TWD. It wasn't bad, but it really wasn't that great. Had this been the first season, I suspect the show's ratings and popularity would be nowhere near what it was after the original first season. About the only interesting parts this year were the ones where more original characters died.

    Some of the scenes this season have taken too long only to provide nothing or very little to the story while in other places it feels like they rushed through a scene that would have been a lot more compelling had it been more thorough.

    The prison setting got old for me after about 3 or 4 episodes. Why? Not because it was boring in itself, but because they did nothing to make it like a home, town, whatever. I am not talking turning into a real city, I am just saying that they did nothing to improve the prison for living. The prison looks the same, actually worse given the recent battles, as it did when they first found it. It's just a really boring setting and we are stuck with it at least until next season.

    Yeah, on the prison. I would have liked to see them explore it more. There should have been more supplies, Warden's office, armory to find. I think they mentioned that an outside armory was out there somewhere yet it never showed them look. I also saw grenades back in Rick's hometown and can't believe he didn't get any for the final conflict. The "trap" in the prison they set for the Gov's people was kind of disappointing. I just expected something more.
