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.

Rick Grimes: Wasn't much use without my gun.
Daryl Dixon: No, you were. All this time you've taking off, you earned it. We wouldn't be here without you.
Rick Grimes: It was all of us.
Daryl Dixon: No, it was you first. You gonna help us figure this out?

Doomed in Prison
22 October 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Patrick attacks survivors and soon the D cell block is crowded of walkers. Hershel, Carol, Daryl, Glenn and Sacha conclude that Patrick died of flu and they decide to isolate who has flu and who had contact with the walkers to protect the others. Tyreese's girlfriend Karen has symptoms of flu and stays in quarantine. Rick and Darryl discover that the pigs are infected and the walkers are being fed with live rats by someone. When a group of walkers is pushing the fence down, Rick has an idea to protect the prison and asks Darryl to drive the truck. They succeed in their intent and Rick recovers his self-confidence and esteem.

The dramatic "Infected" is a good episode of The Walking Dead. The two girls with Carol may be the beginning of the development of new characters since their father was a complete stranger. The sequence with Rick feeding the walkers with the infected pigs is impressive and gives the sensation that it is for real. Carol teaching the kids to defend themselves may be important in the future. Rick will probably assume his leadership again.

Just as a curiosity to the oversea viewers, In Brazil, "The Walking Dead" is shown in Fox-HD on Tuesdays. However, this cable channel does not show any respect to their viewers, and the episode does not end in the scheduled time. Therefore, if you program to see it later, you will lose part of the episode. The main reason is because they present, for example, a complete video clip of Glee in the intermission of The Walking Dead. The moronic programmer of this channel has the brain of a walker, breaking the tension of the episode with the gay Glee. Shame on you, Fox do Brasil ! My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Infected"
