More a cliched Afro-American Ninja / psycho-bitch cross. I considered her introduction to the comic, and for the most part her "crazy person in the corner" brand disruptiveness, to be low points in the story.

I never did seem to figure out which direction Kirkman had intended for the character. Enigmatic hero, ursurper in waiting, ape shit homocide ticking time bomb, who knows. It all just seemed to shift over time until it ended up being what it was - by then I didn't much give a shit what happened to her, no matter how important her involvement became for the story progression. Like much of the character writing, I see this introduction as an opportunity to clean things up a bit in the TV incarnation.

I don't get the ending. I couldn't even tell what we are looking at. People on the net are saying something about a prison, but is that supposed to mean something? I don't recall any references to any prison or anything like that, so it didn't make any sense to me.

Also, didn't care for the ninja bit. Lame.

I really loved the first half of the finale, it is possibly the series' finest moment so far. But it really fell into the crapper towards the end.

From what I'm reading here I assume Michonne is that wacky Deus ex Machina thing with the sword? Were its two sidekicks chained to it or strapped to it somehow? I didn't get that at all. It just seemed totally random and out of place. I wasn't sure if it was there to save Andrea or kill her.

Best line of the night goes to Scott Wilson's Hershel when he said, "Christ promised a resurrection of the dead. I just thought he had something a little different in mind."

I haven't read the comics, but according to people that have, the prison is supposed to play a big role in the upcoming plot based on the comics.

I love the character of Michonne, although I can't deny some of the things you guys say about her. The last scene is a prison and there were some interesting plot points there, but I hope they don't make it as boring as the farm. The series has really faltered for me. I hate Rick and his family on the series. Quite the opposite from what I felt for them in the comic!

Yup, that's cool, but not something I'd actually want or need in my collection.

Me either, but it sure would be funny to see a shelf filled with those at Target or something....

Well after 2 seasons i am happy with it but............

Lord they are dumb these humans. Surely the first thing you would do is arm up! But no these insipid dopes seem intent on being PC and not even arming the kid who seemingly wanders around the Zombie Wastland happy as Larry unarmed!!!

Secondly....... you catch the zombie virus through a bite etc......... would not ankle to wrist heavy military/ hunting or similar type clothing be the order of the day???? I would think so.

And the Farm??? why was that farm good but the one across the road no good???? lol Also why weren't the cars always gased and properly lined up for escape and a set meeting place set in case of attack and forced evac?

It's these things that grate me. They know they are zombies, so one would assume they also know the basic rules.

If you watched the last two episodes of the season you should realize that
Spoiler:
1) Carl was given a gun and 2) You don't catch the zombie virus through a bite. I guess I get your overall point but it isn't as if military grade armor is just left lying around in easy places for civilians to find. Any military output is sure to be infested.
