    Meaning that those inside are now trapped between the Governor (if he does take the rear entrance in) and the zombies in the front.
    Definitely a possibility. Although that side of the prison is over run and as they were explaining in the episode 'Home' (I think) the tombs are filling up with walkers again. So its not as if the Governor can just walk right into the hole in the prison without being noticed.

    I never thought out of the original women characters on this show I would like Carol the most. I don't understand how Andrea can be so blind to everything that is going on. When she was standing there over the Governor with the knife, I was half hoping he woke up and strangled her.

    Oh and Beth Singing 'Tom Waits - Hold on' was very good. Much better the Parting Glass earlier in this season.

    Anyone else notice when they get to the prison suddenly the amount of black zombies triples and 4/5 of the inmates are black or foreign. I pick up on such silly things :/

    What, you crazy? 5 episodes left of the season, the Governor and Prison arc can easily end within that time.

    Pretty boring episode, it was basically just to remind Andrea what is going on around her...

    Hopefully next weeks episode will pick up the slack. We need an ''important'' group member to die already, the last one was Lori way back to early season 3.

    Yeah but wouldn't that be sad? They invented half a season to look for Sophia but skip the awesome governor/prison part...

    Probably going to drop this show soon, it's getting really boring. Zombies aren't even a threat anymore. Also every single character seems to turn into an asshole (if he wasn't already from the beginning) so I really don't care anymore who is going to live or die.

    This is pretty much how I've felt all season. The action is certainly better than last season, but what good is it if I don't give any sort of a crap about the characters. With Shane dead and Rick in a ridiculous insane phase that's looking like it won't end anytime soon, I have nobody left to really cheer for. Daryl is okay but he's no Rick or Shane. And Michonne is, quite frankly, a stupid and unrealistic character that destroys any merit of character realism the show previously had. And like you said, it's changed it's vibe. I wanted to watch likeable people try to survive zombies, not groups of completely unlikeable people competing in turf wars with zombies in the background. And before anyone says it, I don't care if they're following the comic, nor do I care if the comic even exists. Lori dying has been the only bright spot for me this season, besides maybe Beth getting a little more screen time. What can I say, she's hot. Of course, I'm sure she'll die before the end of the season.

    at this point id be happy if they did a sort of prequel season to this current season showing how they spent those 9 months before the start of season 3. where carl stops being a little bitch, carol turns cold and from the start of the season, you can tell that those 9 months were extremely rough. the only downside would be that lori would be alive but i think i can live with that for a season

    I actually enjoyed the episode. Not every episode can be action packed. They're telling a story not making a 90min action movie.

    Last episode was okay, they didn't explain how Rick, Daryl and Merle got back inside the prison but besides that I couldn't see too much wrong with it.
    As others have already said, it can't be action 24/7. There needs to be story like the twist where Tyreese's group joins Woodbury which could lead the Governor inside the prison. I also liked how Hershel confronted Ricks mental state and challenges him to act, and Carl suggesting he should step back from the leadership role and rest. It creates a struggle with Rick where he knows he needs to rest which he can't really afford in a post apocalyptic world yet at the same time his own attitudes and personality wouldn't allow him to step away from being the leader.

    The teaser trailer is certainly interesting, I'm liking the look of the next episode.

    This is what I don't understand. If they want some zombie killing entertainment they should go watch every zombie movie ever. Finally a zombie show that gives us a bit of a look into what would be a little more realistic...people NOT fighting waves and waves of zombies 24/7.

    I have also been hearing the next episode is going to be pretty good. I've heard "best episode of the shows history"...we shall see.

    As for the people saying the zombies aren't a threat anymore...if Glen didn't come along in the truck for Hershel he would be dead. If Daryl and Merle didn't come along Rick would be dead so I don't quite understand that argument.

    That was what like 30 seconds of suspense? The save was telegraphed like five minutes earlier in the episode.

    And by the way why is Hershel not carrying a weapon? He is the one saying the Governor is coming to get them... what a dumbass.

    I'm really hoping this "run" by Rick, Carl, and Michonne gets them into some exciting zombie struggles again.

    Must not have seen the preview for the next episode then because otherwise you would know something exciting DOES happen =D

    Oh so now it's not "zombies aren't a threat" it's "zombies aren't a threat for very long". How did you know he didn't have a weapon? The guy has one leg which I am sure he isn't used to yet, dove down in the middle of a field being shot at (if you think getting up and shooting is the right action you would be dead pretty quick...granted their shooting sucked) and THEN gets a bunch of walkers let loose on him.

    watching this series again as Im writing this.
    really...
    Those zombies are just standing there doing nothing, I have no idea why ppl are killing them when they could just walk past them or trip them or something. Some zombies are like 10m away from them walking at 0.5m/s, no reason to shoot them.
    And another one was like a meter away from someone, still walking and doing nothing.
    Seriously, a world like that would be pretty fun. Would be like "hey, cant touch me newb. WOAAH almost LOL stupid mindless undead"
    The most stereotypical zombies ever.

    i also dont get some of the people talking abut how they are gonna drop the show because theres not enough action or the people are acting like jerks.

    well first of all STOP expecting action every episode. seriously i enjoy the episodes alot pretty much everyone i know does. this is the only place where i hear "theres not enough action" this season. the show is getting huge ratings and is pretty much amc most popular show ever so other people must not agree with you guys either because its only getting bigger.

    and as for the people acting like jerks? NO they are acting like real people glen just got tortured and his gf almost got raped hes allowed to act like a jerk for a little while. rick just lost his wife and his son had to shoot her in the face himself HE DESERVES TO BE A LITTLE CRAZY.

    i dont know what any of you are expecting from this show but its clear some of you are watching it for the wrong reasons and some of you just have really weird expectations its almost as if youve guys have never watched a show where people arent fighting 24/7
