    An OK episode.

    Really not much in the way of high-points.

    I'm finding this episodes that are Andrea-focused kinda drag.

    Michonne did double her previous word count in this one episode though... :D

    You knew her character was going to start to develop more personality at some point.

    Can't really disagree with any of that. It was nice to get a glimpse of Michonne's emotions, and hearing her call Andrea a "friend" tells us that she's at least human :laugh2:

    I don't like what is going on with Rick at all. He's so insane most of the time, that when he is in control it seems weird. They've really blown it imo. How is he so hell bent on killing the governor, but he allows Merle to stay? Doesn't want to give up being the leader when Carl says so, but walks away when crises arise? I understand that those kinds of things are necessary to describe his character, but at some point, it gets to be too much.

    While I think any scene featuring Darrel is the strength of the show, I didn't like the sudden turn of him becoming the leader of Merle. Merle has been too stubborn to do that, and all of a sudden he does? I don't buy it...the characters develop too quickly for a plot that is developing to slowly, and there are major holes because of it.

    And where did that family come from?...How is this the first time in the whole series that a new family is introduced, and they just disappear?

    I really liked the dialogue between Axel and Carol, even though I'm not a big fan of her. It was refreshing to see something a bit lighter for a change. Of course, they immediately blasted him in the fast :laugh2:

    I might bash it, but I thought this was a better episode than previous ones. If nothing else, there was a level of entertainment that has been lacking.

    Why didn't Andrea finish the kill on the Governor when she had the chance?

    Are you maybe a week behind? Or did this stuff just happen to be about mostly last week's episode?

    This weeks' was slow, but it's one of those stage-setting episodes to get us to what should be a blowout week next week. Curb-stomp was the definite money-shot in my book. And I like how they're bringing Carl around as a legitimate tough-little-dude.

    Actually I missed last week's and didn't catch it until it aired right before this weeks so I watched them back to back. I didn't even think of it until now, but they probably blended together.

    My bad.

    I take it the Family you asked about is Tyrese, the woman and the two younger guys?

    They left when Rick came in and flipped out after saying No to them staying.

    They showed up later at Woodbury.

    It is really bizarre for those who followed the comic because Tyrese was a big part of the comic...in the TV there was no Daryl or T-Dawg...it was Tyrese in those roles.

    So I have a feeling that when all is said and done Tyrese will wind up with Rick's group after all....I just hope it is not at the expense of Daryl.

    I was just going to give you a spoiler heads-up if you hadn't seen this week's.

    Was I the only one that thinks the governor was eying the lady in Tyrees' group?

    Oh wow. Just read the Laurie Holden interview about the episode last night, and in the comments section someone posted this:

    Remember when she was Marita Covarrubias on The X-Files?



    Boggle. That was HER? I TOTALLY had forgotten that. :eek:

    No, I meant the ones in the car that Daryl saved. I just thought it was weird that this was the first time int he whole series that main characters saw non-zombies and didn't interact with them. I guess the language barrier was what they used to do that, but I still found it strange.

    The Talking Dead is much better as an hour show even though I still can't stand Hardwick. Let your guests speak jackwagon.

    I thought that too.

    Maybe it's the "wedge" that drives out Andrea.

    They (the writers) aren't through with using character, i.e. the Governor.


    The Andrea character see's this whole Woodbury/the Governor thing as a way to have a more normal(?) life.

    But just as Yeags noticed, I also noticed the look he gave the new gal that arrived on the scene.

    The Governor/Andrea thing is going to be short-lived and won't end nicely IMO.

    Luved the X-files and while her character wasn't on often, I thought it was an interesting character. The way they introduced her I thought she was going to be more involved than how they ended up using her.

    I will say that Laurie Holden is becoming a "Scream Queen" between "The Walking Dead", the "X-Files" and being the female lead in "The Mist".

    Yeah, I think that's the case too.

    The division in that group of 4 is easily seen and the Tyrese character has already shown the ability to read people... He'll see through the Governor in no time at all.

    I remember when she was all dolled up on The Magnificent Seven series. She also played Rock Hudson's daughter on The Martian Chronicles when she was a kid.
