Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Theodore 'T-Dog' Douglas (as Irone Singleton)


The survivors have spent a difficult winter moving from place to place trying to stay clear of the walkers and constantly looking for food. Lori is now at the advanced stage of her pregnancy but it's obvious that she and Rick aren't getting along. When they notice a prison in the distance, Rick convinces them it may be just what they're looking for with the possibility of food and medicine being available. They have to fight their way in, eliminating a large number of walkers but they soon settle into a secure prison block. Several of them set off to explore the prison but are soon surrounded by walkers. They aren't the only survivors in the prison either. Written by garykmcd

Off to another bloody good season
17 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Walking Dead" is my favorite TV show of all time, "Seed" is the first episode to season three and it is fantastic. I have seen the first season about six times and the second season a few times. This is, in my opinion, the greatest drama/action thriller show on TV and should have been at least a runner up for best drama at the Grammy's. Season three starts off a little different from the first and second seasons,This time Rick Grimes, (Andrew Lincoln) leads a group of survivors house to house looking for a place to hold out for at least a month in a zombie apocalypse. The beginning is very fascinating. It shows the group raiding a house after killing a few walkers. But throughout the beginning no one says a word. They then realize they must all move to another house as a group of walkers is right on to them, this where the episode begins, but I love the beginning because the survivors main goal is to find food and a place to hold out and that is all they want right now. They have made it through the winter but have not eaten a good hardy meal in week. They must also find a safe haven for Rick's wife, Lori, (Sarah Wayne Callies) to have her baby. That's when Rick spots the prison in the distance, which may seem like a bad idea but believe it or not a prison in a zombie apocalypse is the perfect place. Before going into the prison to scavenge food and medical supplies the group must fight a huge "herd" of "Walkers" who are wandering all around the prison and on the prison grounds. Rick knows it's risky for a fight like this at a time when the group is exhausted, but the group just needs to push a little farther in order to clear the zombies around the prison. After an intense fight against about thirty walkers they manage to take them all out with Rick's guidance and the group scattered in watch towers taking out each zombie one by one. A few fight scenes later he manages to get the group to safety inside the prison, don't get me wrong seeing a zombie get shot for the millionth time never get's old, and the fight scenes are always different which makes the show new and exciting every time you watch it, and trust me this season will have more action than any show around, so be sure to watch "The Walking Dead."
