Storyline

The Governor again rouses his people to attack the prison. Tyreese and his sister refuse to join them. Before leaving however, he beats Milton to a pulp and leaves him to die after stabbing him several times in the room where Andrea has been tied to a chair. She has only a short time to set herself free before Milton dies and re-animates as a biter. The Governor's group attack the prison and meet little or no resistance. It appears that Rick and the others have left but its all a ruse. The Governor retreats and when his people refuse to regroup and attack again, he takes his revenge on them. Rick and the others decide to push their advantage but have a change of heart when they see what the Governor has done. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The episode starts off with a closeup view of an eye and then pans out to show the Governor's (David Morrissey) face. The premier episode for this season starts out the same way, only when the camera pans out it reveals a walker's face. Possibly a metaphor for how the season starts off with walkers being the biggest danger to the group and ends with them learning that other people are often a greater threat to them. See more »

Quotes

The Governor: I'm gonna tell you the secret. There's a threat, you end it. And you don't feel ashamed about enjoying it. You smell the gunpowder and you see the blood, you know what that means? It means you're alive. You've won. You take the heads so that you don't ever forget.

Worst season yet, the finale was dismal.
2 April 2013 | by zeroartgfxSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this show and I badly want it to do well, but with the very underwhelming ending of season 3 I've been second guessing this series future. The season finale started off O.K. with so many opportunities to be amazing with the impending battle between the Governor and Ricks group, but nothing too great came out of it. Im starting to feel this show is becoming like a drama that consists of mostly arguing/talking with the occasional zombie and gunfight... Not impressed with this season! But I'm hoping in season 4 the crew will get back to writing good episodes like they did in season 1 and 2. At least we have Breaking Bad to look forward to.
