No closure. Poor writing.
Those are my two biggest complaints.
It's funny when you claim Shakespeare's writing is a master piece when the ending to Romeo and Juliet was absolutely horrid. They meet for about a day, fall in love, and kill themselves because they think the other is dead, again, only about a day or so after meeting each other. I know it was supposed to be a tragedy, but the ending was so forced and horribly written it can't be taken seriously.
What type of closure did you want? A end to the zombie apocalypse? Absolutely can't happen. What we did get, was a end to the Clementine and Lee story line, which was done amazingly. We resolved almost all plot points between the two: Clementine's parents, how Clementine can defend herself, her growth as a character from episode one to five, Lee deciding that she doesn't need him any more, etc. It couldn't have happened any other way than with Lee dying, entrusting Clementine to safety.
While poor writing is essentially an opinion, I'd argue the writing in that last scene was done beautifully. Of course that's still my opinion.
