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

Below expectations
2 April 2013 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

What a disappointment. The beginning of the season was good, but second half - nearly a disaster, and it all finished with one of the worst episodes ever.

I really like Morrissey, but his character in the show was transformed from insidious leader to a psychopathic and revengeful jerk. Woodbury, which could become a second group of survivors, equally interesting, is in fact a group of faceless sheeps. Michonne - a unique and odd personality - in the last several episodes is as plain as everybody else.

The development of the final episode was slow and predictable, several times I expected that creators will surprise us, but they haven't. I don't understand why they need walkers in this show, if all the main characters are doing - is walking around and talking.
