Mostly for Rick and Carl tag teaming against the zombies. I hope to see more of that, it looked like Rick realized it’s necessary for Carl to do that sort of thing and his son is good at it.
The Governor reveal felt tacked on.
Pretty much how I felt, except I gave it a 7. That moment made me glad Lori was dead cause I think she would have stifled his character's development.
I'm not sure if I support Rick's decision to banish Carol just cause Tyresse will get pissy and/or she was acting "insubordinate". I'd be more concerned with alienating Daryl and the rest of the council for making that call without their input.
I hope there's some blowback for this in the future.
As far as the walkers at the gate, all they gotta do is find some kind of bulldozer/heavy equipment to mow them all down, so WTF?
