Episode cast overview, first billed only:


After Patrick falls sick and dies, he begins attacking others inside the prison, showing just how vulnerable they all are. Before they know it, the cell block is infested with walkers. The residents have been exposed to a severe strain of the flu and as they die, they turn into walkers. They begin by isolating those with flu symptoms. Carol continues in her quest to teach the children they have to be strong. Someone is feeding live rats to the walkers and they nearly push in the outer fence. Two people are found burned to death.

Did You Know?


Walkers that turned because they died from the virus were given a different look. Special contact lenses created the effects of hemorrhaging eyes. See more »


While the characters are out clearing the fence by stabbing walkers through the chain link, Karen forcefully jabs her weapon toward a walker and mimics the same force required to withdraw it from a skull but nothing is there. They forgot to add a walker head and she ends up stabbing into thin air. See more »

Karen: [Karen and Tyreese lay in bed together in their prison cell] What are you thinking about?
Tyreese Williams: Yesterday. Zach. I can't stop.
Karen: Yeah, me neither.
Tyreese Williams: It used to be we all had acquaintances. Just people moving in and out of your life. No big. See them down the road sometime. Now... a handful of people you know, and that's it. They might as well be the only people left in the world.

Another Great Episode But There Are Still Problems
21 October 2013 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Once again, another step up from the last half of season three with this episode entitled, Infected. Why it's called Infected though? Well you'll have to watch.

Once again, filled with more action than talking and we also get to see a couple of new characters. The hopes that this episode brought to make you tear up is high with one of the scenes, but I won't say any further than that.

Yet, as much as I am really liking season four, there are still some issues with this show. Episode after episode I watch just HOPING that I can relate with at least one character again. I lost that in season three. I mean, there are still characters that absolutely kick-ass (like Daryl and Michone) but I just can't relate to them like, for example, Breaking Bad can do.

There are no "assholes" in this season yet. There isn't anybody that you see would betray the group or anyone that would like to do things their way. I think every good show needs that.

Finally (WARNING: possible spoilers ... just warning you) I think that The Governor's people that Rick took in are just there to be killed. The sole focus is still on the main group (apart from the two new characters we see introduced).

I love The Walking Dead, I loved this episode but still a couple of flaws that I notice which I hope can be resolved throughout the season.

Keelan's rating: 9/10.
