As long as there's non-stop balls to the walls action paired with plenty of quiet character moments, I'll be happy.

More spinning of the wheels until we get to the last episode.

Yep'. I expect that. And zombies and a gunfight at the prison during the finale. A couple main characters will die.

The show has Gilligan's Island syndrome. They will leave the prison and start over next season. Rick will take off his hat and beat Carl with it. Maybe call him "little buddy".

Still a good ride, though.

No one's forcing you to watch. Or to comment.

I really had no idea that no one is forcing me to watch or comment.

Thanks Mom.

P.S. Now I will make sure I comment on how shitty this episode is. Because we all know it will be since we have to suffer through this week and next's until we get to the big 'finale'.

So Laurie Holden is on The Talking Dead afterwards.

Think that means she bites it tonight?

Easily the most boring episode of The Walking Dead ever.

A torture session for Andrea? I think the Walking Dead writers pay attention to internet people and write accordingly.

Worst show of the series. A true time waster. How easy is it to stall for time with a protracted chase? ***Spoiler ahead for this show***. Who was surprised the Governor wasn't dead? Who didn't know that it would be Andrea in the chair at the end? Very disappointing. There aren't that many shows per season--make them count.

I thought the episode had some good moments, although the magical Andrea locator that the Governor apparently owned was pretty laughable.

Funny, since there are actually way more than most cable shows usually get and this is the longest season this show's ever had...

I think the Governor is infected.

Yeah, fully expected her to be captured and the governor to get back alive. Had they actually had the gov eaten by the zombies, I would have been pleasantly surprised.

Isn't the same as season 3? And I'm not talking in regard to other shows. 16 shows in not enough to have two pretty much time wasters in a row. This one was particularly offensive.

Andrea being tracked was pretty intense.

The Gov being infected is an interesting idea. But I think it'd go outside the rules of the show. Dusk till dawn, and no transformation.

Also, what happened with Rick at the end? I assume that Andrea got right to the prison, and then was tackled by The Gov. But I was channel surfing and missed it (shows how much I was into this episode). Is that all that happened?

You missed it. Rick was attacked by a biter, turned into a zombie and ate his baby girl. Next time pay attention.

This...is season three. If you meant season two, then no, season two only had 13 episodes.

Everyone's infected.

NOOOOOO! Did he eat the baby before or after he turned?

One thing they have GOT to do is get rid of the hipster music that they've been starting to play at the end of each episode.

Besides the fact that it's totally out of place, it's distracting and takes you out of the moment.
