Amy Harrison (voice)


At the prison, Rick is surprised by a ringing telephone after his rampage against the walkers. The callers won't identify themselves or say where they are other than they are in a very safe place. While Rick comes to terms with his own demons, Daryl, Carl and Oscar go to clear out other areas of the prison. Just when he thinks he's done, Daryl makes an amazing discovery. In Woodbury, the Governor sends Merle and three others to track down and kill Michone. They don't have much luck but Merle comes across Glenn and Maggie who were out looking for baby formula. Meanwhile, the Governor and Andrea become better acquainted. Written by Anonymous

Great Episode!
23 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the sixth episode of the third season of the Walking Dead and it's a very good episode highlighted by some important discoveries and developing story lines. Each person essentially have their own storyline, and Rick has the deepest, most meaningful one. Andrea has the weakest, but it is interesting to see her character development. There is a good amount of action here so the duration of the episode tends to be entertaining.

In this episode, "Hounded," Rick is fighting with his demons as he is surprised by these phone calls by these unknown people assuring him that they are safe. After he battles his demons, he goes back to the group and he shows affection for his new daughter. Meanwhile, Daryl decides to clear the prison, but he ultimately makes an incredible discovery. The Governor sent Merle out to kill Michonne, but he ultimately fails as he does have an encounter with Glenn and Maggie who were out looking for baby formula.

Overall, this is another great episode and it's really action-packed compared to the last season. Not an episode goes by where we don't see some insane walker violence and even some human violence. I have a feeling that Rick is going to have a meeting with the Governor very, very soon. I rate this episode 9/10.
