Merle Dixon (credit only)


The Governor again rouses his people to attack the prison. Tyreese and his sister refuse to join them. Before leaving however, he beats Milton to a pulp and leaves him to die after stabbing him several times in the room where Andrea has been tied to a chair. She has only a short time to set herself free before Milton dies and re-animates as a biter. The Governor's group attack the prison and meet little or no resistance. It appears that Rick and the others have left but its all a ruse. The Governor retreats and when his people refuse to regroup and attack again, he takes his revenge on them. Rick and the others decide to push their advantage but have a change of heart when they see what the Governor has done. Written by garykmcd

Lackluster Season Finale
5 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"The Walking Dead" ended It's third season with a few surprises. This episode was the 16 of the season "The Walking Dead's" longest season to date. And, for me it was not as good as I'd hoped. Certainly the previous episode was of a higher quality with an ending that packed more of a punch.

Plot In a Paragraph: Andrea (Laurie Holden) is still strapped to the torture chair intended for Michonne. The Governor (David Morrissey) is thirsty for blood and sets off for the prison; looking to settle a score with Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his little band of survivors. Meanwhile, Carl (Chandler Riggs) is becoming just as bloodthirsty as the Governor. And passive Tyreese and Sasha are caught between the two parties

The ending of this episode focused on a main characters death. Some viewers might be saddened by their passing, but this reviewer was more than happy. This characters decisions were strange, naive, inconsistent and downright stupid.

After two solid season finales this was a bit of a let down, but I suspect once The Governor has licked his wounds, like The Governator, he will be back.
