Storyline

At the prison, everyone is surprised by the arrival of Michonne but they have no intention of letting her stay and join the group. She tells them about Glenn and Maggie being taken to Woodbury and offers to lead them there. She makes no mention of Andrea or Daryl's brother. In Woodbury, Merle interrogates Glenn rather forcefully but he refuses to tell him where the others can be found. The Governor decides to interrogate Maggie himself and has more success. Meanwhile, the Governor has asked Andrea to help Milton with an experiment. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

According to Talking Dead, when the walkers are eating a freshly killed human's intestines, the intestines are made out of silicone casing stuffed with "barbecue." Walker extras who do not eat meat are given vegetarian stuffing. See more »

Goofs

Michonne tells Rick she knew where the prison was because Glenn and Maggie mentioned the direction to the prison and that it was a "straight shot". However Glenn and Maggie never even knew Michonne there and never mentioned the prison's location. All she heard was that they were living at the prison. The fact Michonne found the prison isn't hard to imagine, its location would be printed on any local map and/or road signs could have directed her there. See more »

Michonne: The supplies were dropped by a young Asian guy with a pretty girl.
Rick Grimes: What happened?
Hershel Greene: Were they attacked?

Intense Setting Up Of The Conflict
31 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just after I said Michael Rooker was a lot of fun as Merle, he puts in a performance like this

Plot In A Paragraph: Merle beats up Glenn and the Governor abuses Maggie to get information about the gangs whereabouts. Whilst at the prison Michonne tells Rick about Woodbury and who took Glenn and Maggie, so they set off on a rescue mission.

Steven Yeun (Glenn) and Michael Rooker (Merle) are both superb in the interrogation scenes. As is Lauren Cohen in hers, I have a problem with David Morrisey as The Governor, I find him neither attractive and charming (as Andrea does) or scary and intimidating (that I should fear for my favourite characters) Andrew Lincoln is as reliable as always as Rick and Norman Reedus continues to impress as Daryl.

I'm glad to see Melissa McBride back as Carol too.
