Pete Dolgen: Man, what happened here? I mean, what the hell is going on in this cabin? Were they storing those biters?
Caesar Martinez: They were his wife and kid, man.
Pete Dolgen: No, they were biters. What about those heads?
Caesar Martinez: Belonged to the guys who did the wrong thing to the wrong man.
The Governor: Probably best not think too much about it.
Mitch Dolgen: Better listen to One Eye Bri, Pete. I can never tell if he's winking or blinking. But you know how to regulate. Don't you, Bri? He was always like this, Martinez?

Great Episode! Really Picked up the pace.
25 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Every week I look forward to the Walking Dead despite it's flaws. I see people write reviews bashing the show as if their experts. There are complaints about pointless things that most people would disagree with. But lets not dwell on that. Despite being another Governor-centric episode, this weeks episode was really well done. The pace quickened and the background music was really well placed and done. From the opening scene, the light music set a dark theme. This episode has it share of frights, action, suspense, and just utter awesomeness. Lots of things are tied up quite nicely and the cliff hanger is one of best we have seen in awhile. It sets up all out war for the mid season finale. From the promo, it shouldn't disappoint. "Slow" scenes were for the most part pretty scarce this episode and the characters were usually always doing something. But when there was a slower scene, it made sense and was interesting..considering the suspense and dread that was nicely draped over the majority of the episode. This season has by no stretch been bad. Stop hating and enjoy the show. Learn to enjoy slower scenes because lets face it..action all the time isn't always a good thing. This episode currently has 8.2 rating but it defiantly should be somewhere in the 8.4-8.5 range. After last weeks slower paced episode..this one was thrill ride. Next weeks mid season finale should raise the bar higher.
