Ok, my fears about last week's slooooow (and dull as ditchwater) episode "Date of Death" have been calmed. Erickson and Kirkman have delivered a finale for Season 2. I mean they really have DELIVERED a finale, I just loved those last two episodes. "Wrath", episode 14, in particular just seemed to fly by. Chris got his comeuppance (congrats to Lorenzo, stunningly good work) and then Brandon and Derek got their's!! Oh, and respect to Ofelia - she's still got her hammer on I see. #ThorFelia anyone?
"North" was pretty excellent as well. Drawing together a number of different story elements, a big tut tut to Travis for bashing down the gates to the hotel, he's not going to be able to go back *there* anytime soon.
About ten minutes before the end of "North" I was a bit worried, the stories seemed to be over. Maddy and crew had left the hotel, La Colonia's residents were just not there when Los Hermanos turned up. Poor Marcos :) But then Nick, and everyone from La Colonia, turn up at the US border and we discover the story isn't quite over after all.
I so loved that 90 minutes of television :)
I've filled in the plot sections of those episodes but only with the official recaps from AMC. I'll be fleshing them out as usual, but there's quite a bit to do so please add to and edit the plot sections if you want.
Roll on Season 3!!
