I'm finally caught up! I watched it On Demand. For the future, if Norman Reedus is not going to appear in an episode, I would like to be notified beforehand.... That said, I thought this season started out very strong, much better than season three, which I still haven't seen all of... But I thought it all started to go awry with the two episodes focused on the governor. I agree with whomever posted above that they don't really care about the new characters--I also think you could've condensed those two episodes into one, if you really had to just focus on him. I didn't mind the final episode and I do think it will be interesting to watch them all get to the meeting place (I assume there is one as well...), and I think Carol will be back, too. That all said, I didn't mind them staying at the prison. I think it was interesting to watch the dynamics of trying to set up a new society, and they ventured out enough to have enough interesting zombie fights. (the scene with the helicopter on the roof was awesome.) Looking forward to the new season, as long as there aren't any Daryl-less episodes.
