I'll Probably Never Rewatch This Episode
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Any episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" that does not feature Rick (Andrew Lincoln) feels off, and this slow burner episode is no different, and after a so far faultless season with quality episode after quality episode. This is a let down.

Plot In A Paragraph: Following the revelation at the end of the last episode, that The Governor, was alive and well. We find out, that after the fall of Woodbury, the Governor is left wandering through the countryside. After a few months, he meets up with some survivors. Tara and Lilly Chambler, who take care of their father and Lilly's daughter Megan. Slowly, the Governor integrates himself into their group and they form a family of sorts. After the death of their father, the four of them set off in the hopes of finding a better place. Their truck breaks down and they set off on foot when they run into someone from the Governor's past.

A wasted episode in a so far faultless season.
