Did You Know?


This is the first episode where the Dixon brothers - Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Merle (Michael Rooker) - actually appear together in a scene. The first time the brothers were seen together was in the season two episode, The Walking Dead: Chupacabra (2011) (albeit a daydream). See more »


When the Governor addresses the townspeople, the Steadicam's shadow is briefly visible on the Governor's shirt, as the camera passes between him and the rigged floodlights. See more »

The Excellent Last Episode of this Year
9 December 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A small group of survivors reach the prison and Carl rescues them from an attack of walkers in the boiler room, but keeps them locked in a cell with water and supplies. In Woodbury, the Governor sees his daughter Penny in his room. When Merle and another local are preparing to execute Glenn and Maggie, Rick, Daryl, Oscar and Michonne breaks in the place and rescue the couple. There is a shooting and Oscar is deadly wounded, Daryl covers the escape of Rick, Maggie and Glenn. But Michonne stays, expecting to kill the Governor in his home but he is saved by Andrea.

When Michonne reaches the group, Rick believes that she had double- crossed them and takes his sword since Daryl is missing. Meanwhile the Governor accuses Merle of betrayal for the dwellers of Woodbuury and shows Daryl that was captured, accusing him of terrorism while the astonished Andrea watches everything.

"Made to Suffer" is another excellent episode of the Third Season of The Walking Dead and unfortunately the last episode of this year. The confrontation of Merle, Daryl and Andrea was expected and my guess is that Andrea will force the Governor to release the brothers.

The new group of survivors will probably reinforce Rick's team that has lost Oscar and Daryl. Carl is one of the most intriguing characters of this series, since he is a boy that is very mature due to the wild world where he lives. But only in February we will see the sequel of this outstanding story. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Made to Suffer"

Note: The IMDb personnel should be more careful with the release date; or at least, they should read the correspondence that the users send to them like I did advising that there was a problem with this title.
