Warning: I'm drunk. And I'm a bitter drunk, but oddly eloquent.

The best thing about this episode? Mazzara has been fired and he won't get the chance to butcher another character, ever again.

So far he's ruined Michonne, Andrea, Tyreese, Allen, and Glenn for me. Next week we'll probably see Judith try to murder Carol, or something. I also don't get why he feels we'd give two shits about the people of Woodbury. If Milton or Karen were to die a horrific death next week, I wouldn't even blink. Milton used to have potential for me, but now I see he's just a clean dressed bitch. He's not even smart. All Karen does is whine. Just because the people of Woodbury have lines doesn't mean we're attached to them and care about them. The citizens of Woodbury are a complete waste of time. All we need is The Governor and Martinez. Everyone else should just be Central Casting employees.

Most of the writing doesn't even make sense or is just pointless. I don't care how many fighters are left in Woodbury. Just cut straight to Andrea confronting the Governor and her going off to the prison. Everything in between was a complete waste of time. Milton/Andrea scenes and Milton/Governor scenes. Noah. Fucking Karen. Total filler. Woodbury is like the paper tissue stuffing in a 14 year old girl's bra. Congratulations on your close up, arthritic lady, but I care about you so little that during your scene I checked out my Tumblr dash.

Andrea's visit to the prison should've lasted longer. She should've stayed there several days. SHE SHOULD'VE talked to Maggie and found out what the Governor tried to do to her. She should've called Michonne out on keeping secrets. She should've interacted more with Rick. I didn't need to see Andrea holding Judith. I needed to see Andrea sit down with Rick and put everything out on the table and clear the air, and maybe even make a plan. After all, Rick is the leader of the prison and Andrea is the leader of Woodbury. Why didn't anyone go, "hey, we're both leading these two groups, and we both have an enemy in common: The Governor. Let's just join forces and take him out and boom, happily ever after." How did that not happen?

Andrea clearly seduced the Governor to try to kill him. As per Carol, CAROL's, suggestion. Why didn't Rick try to sit down with Andrea and clear the air? Obviously Rick realized Andrea was being conned by the Governor, therefore his gentle treatment of her later on. But why wasn't Rick smart enough to see that he could've used Andrea as The Queen in this chess game and sit down with her and figure out where to move her? This plotline should've taken at least two episodes (at LEAST), it should've been more complex. How long was Andrea there, anyway? A minute? It was like she just showed up to deliver a pizza, collect her tip, and then leave.

The writing is so off that most of the fandom didn't get the fact that Andrea only slept with the Governor again because she was trying out Carol's plan. People seem to think that Andrea slept with the Governor again because she was back to Team Woodbury, when it was really obvious that Andrea was becoming a Mata Hari. Here's how easily, and quickly, that confusion could've been avoided:

Instead of all that Woodbury nonsense, the writers could've written a scene in which Andrea confesses once again to Rick that she didn't know what was going on and asks for his understanding. Rick sees that she's being honest and drops all hostility and realizes Andrea is still one of them. Andrea then mentions Carol's plan to Rick. She confesses she's never killed a person and she doesn't think she could, but she feels like she HAS to. Rick sympathizes with her struggles because he realizes Andrea killing the Governor would break her like him killing Shane did. So he tells her she doesn't have to kill the Governor for them, to just go back and lay low, stay tight, and he'll figure it out. Reassuring Andrea and giving her this advice and making her feel safe makes Rick feel confident, he starts to come out of his insanity, and Rick the leader starts to emerge yet again.

Instead there's music and Andrea just looks at everyone and everyone looks constipated and then she drives off.

This season is awful. Just because the fans asked for a faster pace doesn't mean you have to sacrifice character integrity. There's something really off about the priorities of Mazzara's writing. Loved Darabont. Reluctantly looking forward to Gimple. But these scripts, Christ. Awfulness. I was okay with Beth's singing in episode one because they'd found a place of peace and the moment called for it. But in this episode it seemed like a waste of time. At this point in the game we don't need to hear some singing. We need to see characters sit down and get to business. Glenn's line to Andrea: "that was days ago." Really? DAYS ago and the only character who yells at them to stop bitching and come up with a plan is BETH?

There's just no consistency when it comes to the characters. They keep changing in every episode. I'm so outraged about Tyreese I can't even think straight. I hate, HATE, the fact that Merle is back and walking round the prison when two episodes ago he was trying to kill Glenn and Michonne, and knew about the Governor trying to rape Maggie AND LET IT HAPPEN. But suddenly Daryl says Merle stays and Glenn and Michonne just fold? Murderer Merle who didn't care about Maggie being raped? Seriously? Is the Dixon pandering that severe?

The only character I feel has stayed consistent is Hershel. Bless him. He's quickly becoming my favorite. Everyone else... ugh, Mazzara. Just... ugh.

Maybe Andrea didn't freeze up when it came to killing TG, but rather realized that stabbing him isn't the way to go. I think it is highly unlikely that Andrea could get away with that. If she is truly going to be an assassin, she needs to make it look like an accident or at the very least not leave herself as the prime suspect. TG being killed right after her return from the prison would be suspicious and Milton knows she went to the prison. It would be more plausible for TG to become the victim of friendly fire. I also think that would be a cool twist on the comics.

Of course, that would never happen. The show doing something cool with something that happened in the comics is very unlikely.

I'm not sure she is in denial now, and I don't think she went "crawling back to him". I think she actually tried to put Carol's plan into action, and she just couldn't kill him in his sleep. I understand why. Anyone claiming that she should have sliced and diced him while he slept, when she has never killed anyone in her life, because she has heard some nasty stuff about him...is expecting unrealistic writing. Andrea can defend herself - she isn't the terminator.

I so agree with Leela about Woodbury though. The audience doesn't care about them, and that is a problem when the writers clearly expect us to.


People seem to be forgetting something: outside the walls of Woodbury, outside the walls of the prison, the world is overrun with flesh-eating ghouls that threaten the human race with extinction.

It makes no logical sense that the remains of the human race is still fighting a war against each other. The sensible thing to do would be for Woodbury and the prison group to work together in trying to rebuild civilization.

That is the sensible solution and I think that's what Andrea is trying to do.

The situation we see unfolding is the same one that proceeds any war in history.

There's always people who believe that peace is still possible and will do everything they can to avoid war.

There's nothing wrong with that.

I understand her reluctance to kill the governor. Assassination often has unintended consequences. Remember what happened when a certain Archduke was murdered.

Regarding Tyreese's group in Woodbury, I noticed that the Guv certainly became interested once he learned tha they came from the prison. It seemed, though, that he got a look of distrust on his face. I think that he thinks they are spies. He may turn on them and that causes them to escape and return to the prison. Just a thought.

Bad writing. Good acting. agreed 100% with Leela's drunk rant, they really could have done better with the characters. Maybe this next showrunner will do better, b/c I'm getting fed up with bad writing.

1. Andrea should have stayed longer, talked to Maggie. Everything else that the Gov did that was evil was done through Merle. Not personally, except for Maggie. That would have made more of a difference to Andrea than anything Michonne, Glenn, Rick or Merle could say.

2. Andrea should have talked more to Rick, one on one. They could have come up with more of a plan than just kill the Guv in his sleep.

So how many more episodes of Andrea in Woodbury are we going to have to suffer through?

3. Tyrese should not have ended up in Woodbury.

4. Why show us pointless filler scenes of the town and some asthmatic kid?

This episode ran the gauntlet from really, really good to really, really bad. Carl, Carol, Hershel, Michonne and Merle all had great lines and scenes while the whole Andrea situation and what happened with Tyrese just left me scratching my head. The drunk rant qouted above was spot on with my thoughts on a lot of things but I am still enjoying the show more than anything else on television (except Spartacus, 1A and 1B there) and really hope some of these odd storylines get wrapped up soon and the show focuses on what the fans want.

It was good, not the best though. I felt sorry for Andrea as she'd expected to be welcomed with open arms I think. I didn't like that Tyreese was with TG at all. I'm hoping he'll realise quickly and leave.

I wondered if they might make Tyreese into Josh, from The Road to Woodbury?? Move Sasha into Lily's role? Perhaps Lily will arrive later though...

I understood Andrea not wanting to stay around very long. She was a fish out of water. She doesn't feel like a part of that group any more. Plus, I think part of her thought: why live in a grimy, dangerous prison with very little food, when there's a perfectly nice town I can go back to?

Re: Merle being accepted back so quickly - there's definitely an enemy of my enemy is my friend factor going on here. I think there's also the "under the Governor's spell" factor. Michonne points out that Andrea was "under his spell from the minute [she] saw him". Merle gets out of Woodbury, breaks the spell, and he's a different person.

I just feel like the Andrea/Woodbury thing has turned into hypercriticism. It's like people are watching just to try and pick it apart. Suspend your disbelief and sink in to the story. That's not to excuse poor writing, acting, whatever, but as a viewer, you're doing yourself a disservice if you can't allow yourself to be immersed in it for at least a viewing before you start to criticize.

Just my opinion.

Hmm, I didn't think about it in that way. But IMO, that's the way Rick and Hershel could see it. But do Glenn( called him a snake), Maggie (lays the blame on him) and Michonne ( she likened him to the Gestapo) see it that same way? I highly doubt it.

Merle had the foresight/self-preservation instinct to try and clear the air with Michonne. Why did he not do so with Glenn? Does he think that Glenn is no longer a threat?

The Good: Rick returning from LaLa Land.
Michonne having some dialogue.
Carol's assassination plot.
The Governor's eye patch.

The Bad: Andrea staying in the Governors influence.
Merle being basically accepted into the group with little resistance.
Tyrese's group joining up with Woodberry

The Ugly: Andrea's flat booty.
The animatronics used in the zombie domestication scene.

This is the character driven (ie filler) episode that a lot of people on the board have been clamoring for. No major plot details or reveals, but some tiny nuances added to layer a few of the main players.

TG shows how much disdain he has growing for Andrea. Coldly answering her questions about the prison assault and drafting the young teenager into the Woodberry army despite her objections. Andrea is stuck between a rock and a hard place right now and might find herself without any group to latch onto.

Tyrese and company are regarding Woodberry as a safe haven for now. It seems obvious to me that Sasha and Tyrese won't be under the spell for long. Allen and Ben however might as well start writing their wills (Ben sounded like he is ready to ride on the prison right now). Considering how well they were treated prior to Rick's arrival despite their plans to throw a coup, you would think they would take a more laissez-faire approach to the Woodberry-Prison conflict.

Another thing I don't get is why everyone is kvetching about Tyreese and Co. going to Woodbury. I mean, I get it just from the perspective of "Tyreese is a good guy and we don't want him to side with the bad guy", but it served a purpose. That illustrates how appearances aren't everything. Rick seemed like (in fact, was) a crazy person waving a gun around, whereas the Governor seems very steady, kind, helpful, etc - when in fact it's the opposite. Sort of illustrates how the Governor built Woodbury in the first place. If he seemed crazy, no one would have joined him. And it made perfect sense for Tyreese to adopt exactly the same approach as he did when they were in the prison - offer to be as helpful as possible in order to secure a place to live in safety.

I foresee Allen and Ben staying with Woodbury and being loyal to TG while Tyreese eventually sees the dark side of Woodbury and turns against him.

Warning: I'm drunk. And I'm a bitter drunk, but oddly eloquent.


You should review drunk more, then. This was very interesting. :-)

So far he's ruined Michonne, Andrea, Tyreese, Allen, and Glenn for me. Next week we'll probably see Judith try to murder Carol, or something. I also don't get why he feels we'd give two shits about the people of Woodbury. If Milton or Karen were to die a horrific death next week, I wouldn't even blink. Milton used to have potential for me, but now I see he's just a clean dressed bitch. He's not even smart. All Karen does is whine. Just because the people of Woodbury have lines doesn't mean we're attached to them and care about them. The citizens of Woodbury are a complete waste of time. All we need is The Governor and Martinez. Everyone else should just be Central Casting employees.


See, for me, maybe the problem was in the execution, but not in the idea. Woodbury in the comics was basically anonymous aside from TG and a few characters. It was a wonderful idea to open it up and see WHY this community worked the way it did... HOW it would have gotten that way. Plus, this treatment adds shades of gray. In the comics (which tend to be morally simplistic), TG and Woodbury = bad and Rick/prison = good. I like that we're seeing ordinary, boring, pedestrian stuff in Woodbury. It shows it's not some sort of dark castle where only evil lurks.

Andrea's visit to the prison should've lasted longer. She should've stayed there several days. SHE SHOULD'VE talked to Maggie and found out what the Governor tried to do to her. She should've called Michonne out on keeping secrets. She should've interacted more with Rick. I didn't need to see Andrea holding Judith. I needed to see Andrea sit down with Rick and put everything out on the table and clear the air, and maybe even make a plan. After all, Rick is the leader of the prison and Andrea is the leader of Woodbury. Why didn't anyone go, "hey, we're both leading these two groups, and we both have an enemy in common: The Governor. Let's just join forces and take him out and boom, happily ever after." How did that not happen?

Andrea clearly seduced the Governor to try to kill him. As per Carol, CAROL's, suggestion. Why didn't Rick try to sit down with Andrea and clear the air? Obviously Rick realized Andrea was being conned by the Governor, therefore his gentle treatment of her later on. But why wasn't Rick smart enough to see that he could've used Andrea as The Queen in this chess game and sit down with her and figure out where to move her? This plotline should've taken at least two episodes (at LEAST), it should've been more complex. How long was Andrea there, anyway? A minute? It was like she just showed up to deliver a pizza, collect her tip, and then leave.


I attribute a lot of this to Rick being distracted. Even though he seems more "with it" now, he still doesn't seem like the Rick of old. The story they're telling is about him being eaten up by his guilt and eventually being redeemed when he finally works through it and becomes himself again. It doesn't work if he just snaps back into being Super Rick and developing awesome, logical plans.

I am very curious about what we're supposed to take away from Andrea not killing TG in his sleep.

My take was that she simply couldn't do it, even knowing that she SHOULD. It can't be easy to just assassinate someone in their sleep. It also brings to mind that she was a lawyer pre-ZA, right? So I wonder if some part of her felt like straight to execution without a "trial" (or something, at least) just wasn't right.

But you could also see how it could be viewed as her personal feelings for him overcoming her. That would be less interesting.

Or that she determined there was a chance he'd wake up and stop her and she'd be revealed as a turncoat.

She's an idiot who refuses to believe that she was wrong. She's kinda liking th Governor and maybe she realizes that without him, she wouldn't be enough to keep the town in shape.


Nah - I think in her perfect world, the prison crew would move in to Woodbury and they'd all live happily ever after. Which sort of makes sense - without TG it's a pretty nice place

The only gripe I have with this episode is how fast Merle has become a part of the group.

Them taking him into the prison is already a stretch. He should be locked up in a cell.

Rick won't let Tyreese, Sasha, Ben and Allen stay, yet he'll let a crazy racist who almost got Michonne, Glenn, and Maggie killed stay and become a part of the group?

It doesn't make sense. Yes he is Daryl's brother but he has proved to be extremely untrustworthy.

Rick doesn't trust Merle though...he is very weary of him hence leaving Daryl to watch over the group while on his run with Carl and Michonne. I think Merle knows now that Daryl loves these people and will do anything to protect them, including Daryl taking him out if he steps out of line while in the prison...look how quick he was to put the crossbow to his back when he was trying to raid the car with the Latino's. No imagine what he would do if say he was to try and Carol or anyone else.

So sad to see Tyresee in Woodbury! Don't want him helping TG at all and I think his daughter could be screwed/killed by the Gov at some point

Sasha is his sister... Just saying. It was stated in the first episode that we met Tyreese and co.

Not liking Tyreese in Woodbury.

Had a feeling Sasha doesn't feel comfortable there and thinks something's up.

I thought she looked suspicious too. The guv was also giving her some funny looks.

I was sad to see Tyreese's group happily joining Woodbury, even though I can understand after Rick going crazy and throwing them out waving a gun. I also thought it looked like Sasha thought something was wrong (she is his sister, people keep calling her his daughter) and I wonder if she is connecting the rescue mission with Woodbury and realizing there is more going on than they realize.

In this part, Herschel had just about convinced Rick to let them stay and then he hallucinated Lori and started on his freak out. Tyreese and co. took it the wrong way and left. I am not the only one who viewed it this way.

Rick won't let Tyreese, Sasha, Ben and Allen stay, yet he'll let a crazy racist who almost got Michonne, Glenn, and Maggie killed stay and become a part of the group?

Like I said above ^ "Herschel had just about convinced Rick to let them stay and then he hallucinated Lori and started on his freak out. Tyreese and co. took it the wrong way and left. I am not the only one who viewed it this way." Daryl was not going to stay unless Merle was allowed to. Therefore they all sacrificed having Merle there to keep Daryl.

• Hope that Tyreese and Sasha come to their senses soon. I have a feeling that Allen and Ben will ultimately side with Woodbury, but Sasha and Tyreese will end up joining team prison in the end.
• Beth's song was a little odd at first, but I liked it

I agree with Ben and Allen staying, after-all they wanted to take over the prision and Tyreese stopped them. I do believe we will see Tyreese and Sasha back to the prison soon...
I actually liked the singing also. I think it went well with the mood.

Do you think that the Guv accepting Andrea back into Woodbury (and his bed) is just a case of "Keep your enemies closer"?
He initially told her to stay at the prison if she went there. You'd think he be sleeping with one eye open (literally).

I totally thought he opened his EYE. And just went with it. I was also a little tired when watching.. Will have to re-watch!

1. Tyreese's camp siding with Woodbury. It just doesn't seem right having them there. The whole Tyreese and his daughter siding with Rick and the other two sticking with the Governor seems fairly obvious so I hope that doesn't happen.

Sasha is Tyreese's sister... not daughter.

I don't think it's pointless. I think it makes perfect sense. They literally begged Rick's group to let them stay and they were thrown out. It was heartless. Rick came off as an arrogant, crazy, jerk. Then Milton and the Governor sweep in and give them a nice, clean place to stay. The Governor played the whole scene out perfectly when they talked abut Rick and his group. Notice he didn't push at all. He kept saying "You rest, we can talk about it tomorrow." He wanted them to know Rick's group had hurt them but he wanted them to think Ricks group instigated the whole thing and that Woodbury was innocent. He wanted them to join his side but he wanted them to believe it was their decision and that he would never pressure anyone. It was smart.

I said it up there ^ that "Herschel had just about convinced Rick to let them stay and then he hallucinated Lori and started on his freak out. Tyreese and co. took it the wrong way and left. I am not the only one who viewed it this way."

He's reading this right now and thinking "Damn! I shouldn't have taken my cap off. One look at that receding hairline and the chicks turn on me!!! I should have just kept shooting them and left my cap on- then they'd still love me."

I still think he's pretty yummy. And I don't mind looking at him, but his baseball cap did look good. Bitches love baseball caps.

Regarding Tyreese's group in Woodbury, I noticed that the Guv certainly became interested once he learned tha they came from the prison. It seemed, though, that he got a look of distrust on his face. I think that he thinks they are spies. He may turn on them and that causes them to escape and return to the prison. Just a thought.

I never thought of this, glad you posted it because I totally agree and I think this could happen. And they also offer to describe the prison to them which could actually be the guv thinking their trying to trick him into a trap. Could be a good storyline!

As for my post: Ricks hair looks sexy pushed back (thank goodness its back)
I liked the minimum action after we just had so much. Like a calm before the storm kinda thing!

1) Several people are posting that Andrea is Woodbury's new leader. That isn't true. The Gov told her that he wanted her to be leader in order to manipulate her. The Gov can say that all he wants but the reality is plain to see. The town people are NOT following Andrea's lead, they are doing what the Gov says. Martinez is his second-in-command. Andrea obviously does not have any power at all and to say that she is the leader while the guards are gathering up people to fight and she doesn't know or approve is just silly. She's not the leader. Some of the people hope that she still has influence with TG, but that is all.


They're starting to show people seeing Andrea as a decision maker. Martinez was trying to take the kid off and the woman appealed to Andrea to intervene, right? I don't think that was because she could curry favor with TG. The last episode established with her speech that she is starting to be viewed increasingly more as a leader, if not THE leader.

2) Andrea is a lost cause. She KNOWS TG is bad. She knows that everything Rick and Co. have said is true. She may have told herself that she was just sleeping with TG to try to kill him and she went through the motions but stopped. She does NOT want to join Rick and Co. at the prison. She likes the comfort of Woodbury. She described the prison's conditions as horrible. She does not want horrible. She likes her warm bed. Her looking out the window at the end is her realizing that she's willing to go along with TG's plans if it means staying in comfort. Remember - she wanted to off herself in season 1. She does NOT like living in the ZA. She wants cold drinks, warm beds and "normal." She will do anything to keep herself in comfort and now she knows it.


I definitely agree that she wants to stay in Woodbury - and to be honest, TG aside, who wouldn't? You'd rather live in a prison than Woodbury?

But I disagree she's a lost cause. I think she will eventually realize that in order to stay in Woodbury, TG has to go.

4) The scene with Merle and Hershel is there to give the false impression that Merle is redeemable. He's not. He read the Bible to know his enemy, not to become a believer.


I dunno - if they're from the south, it wouldn't be all that unusual to have had a religious upbringing. Maybe we're supposed to see that there was good in Merle once, he did some bad things, but ultimately still has that good inside him - i.e. the child who knows what's right and wrong. I believe Merle is like Daryl - once he decides he's with you, he's with you. And I think he's decided he's with the prison.

7) It was disappointing to see Rick and Co. not trying to clear out the walkers in the yard. They could do it through the fence fairly easily. However, the walkers do create a kind of shield; if TG wants to attack them at close range, they have to go through the walkers to do it.


I think it was more about priorities. Clearing out the yard is useless if they have no guns and ammo to defend themselves. Rick's mind is on getting those guns and ammo. He's got tunnel vision.

8) Milton is a total waste. He knows how evil TG is. He's so terrified of the new ZA world that he'll go along with anything TG says or does in order to stay under TG's protection.


I think we still have more to see from Milton. At some point, you can't follow. He'll have to make a decision. I would love to see a scene at the end of the season where TG captures Rick and gives Milton a gun to execute Rick, only to have Milton finally realize how wrong he's been for following TG, turn the gun on him, and pop him right in his other eye.
