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.

Under My Skin
21 October 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

In the premiere of season 4, we had an even mix of both action and character development. However in this episode, the writers decided to go for the more emotional route rather than just having the episode turn into a bloodbath.....and I absolutely loved it! There were some riveting action scenes in this episode (the D Block scene stands out the most)but the reason why I enjoyed this episode so much was the way it made me feel; with Rick in particular. There was so much emotion between the characters which is what made the episode feel so real.They seem to be doing a very interesting side story between the two little girls at the moment, that I'm guessing will play into the larger plot which I'm excited for. Also there's the new threat that needs to be addressed! I won't name what it is for people who want to read a review that isn't spoiler heavy but trust me....It doesn't look good for the group. The promos for the next episode suggests there are going to be A LOT of zombies so they really do seem to be doing this season justice in terms of pacing and keeping the show interesting. Just hope they can keep it up. This episode has been rated highly, and rightly so. It goes down as one of the shows best for me.
