Episode cast overview, first billed only:


The community in the prison has grown significantly and they are slowly becoming self sufficient. They are growing vegetables and raising pigs and soon will no longer need to go on food runs. For now, that's still a requirement and Glenn, Tyreese, Daryl, Michonne and several others go to a nearby army base to see what they can find. All goes well until a minor accident results in walkers dropping in on them. Back at the prison, Rick goes to check their trap line and comes across a woman who says she and her husband haven't eaten for four days and would like to join their camp. Rick is wary and, as it turns out, with good reason. Written by garykmcd

What we've been waiting for
14 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a somewhat disappointing finale to Season 3, "30 Days Without an Accident" takes the show back to the glory of what is was in the earlier episodes of Season 3. It has good introductions to new characters, does a good job of reintroducing the characters we already know and setting up possible story arcs for them later on, and has an ending that will leave you angry that you have to wait another week before you see what happens with it.

If the quality of this episode is going to be the same for the rest of the season than everything should work out well. The stories, characters, and heart-pounding tension will keep you invested and for what's to come.
