Storyline

The Governor forces Daryl and Merle to fight against each other; however Rick and Maggie help them to escape from Woodbury and Andrea realizes that The Governor had lied to her. When Rick, Maggie and Daryl meet Glenn and Michonne outside Woodbury, they do not accept that Merle joins their group, but Daryl decides to stay with his older brother. Meanwhile in the prison, Hershel gives medical assistance to Tyreese's group but he warns that the group is larger but it is not up to him to decide whether they can stay or not with them. Back to Woodbury, people are panicking and some of them want to leave the town. However The Governor does not take any attitude towards the situation. Andrea assumes her leadership to calm down the dwellers. When Rick returns to the prison, he decides the fate of Tyreese's group against the will of Hershel but shows signs of insanity.

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

This is the ninth episode of the third season of the Walking Dead and like every episode this season, it doesn't disappoint. Another action-packed episode and it even has its emotional moments. This episode also shows us how Rick is slow to recover from the death of Lori, as you will see in this episode.

In this episode, "The Suicide King," The Governor forces Merle and Daryl to fight each other, but they are rescued by Rick and Maggie. Once they escape, Rick makes it known he refuses to take Merle in so Daryl leaves the group to be with his brother. Meanwhile over at Woodbury, Andrea is shocked she was lied to by the Governor and as unrest grows, Andrea decides to act as a leader while the Governor does nothing. Back at the prison, Carol gets upset over the departure of Daryl and Rick meets Tyreese's group for the first time.

Overall, this is another great episode. The main highlight is how Rick is still affected by his wife and this episode also shows how dangerous the Governor is and that Rick many want to get his act together if he wants to survive this menace. I rate this episode 9/10.
