The Walking Dead Season One Finale Review

What Did You Think of The Walking Dead Finale?

For a show with an incredibly short first season, The Walking Dead hasn't been afraid to lay everything out on the table. In only six episodes, the series has killed off several characters and given us enough gore to turn even the strongest stomachs. The bar was set pretty high leading up to last night's episode, which made me curious to see how the first season would close.

The episode focuses on Rick and the other survivors as they enter the CDC to escape the zombies and get some answers. At first, the place is like paradise, with working hot showers and enough wine to get everyone intoxicated. But things quickly turn into a ticking time bomb — both literally and figuratively. Shane's resentment toward Rick and Lori explodes, Andrea can't shake her sister's death, and the CDC doctor is acting a little strange.

While the episode doesn't pack a ton of action, it's definitely intense (the similarities to Lost seemed more apparent than ever). I would've liked more information regarding other survivors or a cure, but there was one cliffhanger that will keep me tuning in for next season: what does Dr. Jenner whisper in Rick's ear? Chime in with your theories on their secret and on the episode in general. And don't forget to check out out The Walking Dead Fans group in the BuzzSugar Community.

I was so happy to see the CDC blow up. I am OK that they are deviating from the comic, but I just felt that if we were going to be stuck underground for awhile I may go crazy. I agree with #2. Jenner was sure he was the last person on earth, so it was probably about other survivors. I hope they bring in Michonne next season. She was one of the best things to happen to the comic.

i'm enjoying the show, but have to say the comics are better - read them if you haven't already. i'm going to guess that the doctor whispered something about where the group should go next.

Great Finale, was on my seat for the end! Since I haven't read the comic I can't say for sure but I am guessing a pregnancy, maybe an illness and something about the disease. Makes me want to go out and buy the comics now even though I know that some things are different in the tv show than in the comics.

I agree with anonymous #2. Can you imagine the ramifications that is going to have next year? That scene between Lori and Shane was so intense. He is getting harder and harder to feel sympathetic towards. I was glad Dale and Andrea made it out and cannot believe I have to wait nearly a year for more Daryl! The way he decapitated that zombie was hot! Who ever thought I would be hot for a racist, redneck?

I thought it was great! Definitely sad that the season was so short though!
