We can all pretty much agree that The Walking Dead has gone downhill right? The first half of the Season 4 was more about the infections than the zombies, and then FINALLY we saw The Governor and he got the proper sendoff that he deserved last season!

Kirkman teases a happy ending. “We started the season pretty hopeful and pretty optimistic,” he says. “We’ll open our last half of the season pretty bleak and we’ll move them to something a little more hopeful by the end.”

I think he forgets that we didn’t start off “hopeful and pretty optimistic” at all! Yes, the lawn happened to be well manicured. And YES, everyone seems to have gained weight and shaving well enough, but they also got sick and a lot of them died. Obviously Kirkman’s idea of optimism is a bit more skewed than the rest of us.

We’ll see how the end of the Season 4 goes, but I just hope that it either ends better than the mid-season finale, or they look towards way of getting another show-runner. I feel that the wells starting to dry up a bit.
