Storyline

The Governor convinces his new community that it is in their best interests to take over the prison and if necessary, use force to do so. Not everyone is comfortable with that approach - Lilly and Meghan stay behind, with tragic consequences. The Governor and his crew appear at the prison and has two bargaining chips with him - Herschel and Michonne are his prisoners. He tells Rick to be out by sundown. Rick for his part tries to reason with him but the die is cast. In the ensuing battle, many - from both sides - are killed. Written by garykmcd

Rick Grimes: [points to Tara] You. You in the ponytails. Is this what you want? Is this what any one of you want?
Mitch Dolgen: What we want is what you got. Period. Time for you to leave, asshole.
Rick Grimes: Look, I've fought him before. And after, we took in his old friends. They've become leaders in what we have here. Now you put down your weapons, walk through those gates... you're one of us. We let go of all of it, and nobody dies. Everyone who's alive right now. Everyone's who's made it this far. We've all done the worst kinds...

Jesus Christ! What an episode.
1 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Before I start, do not worry for I will not give away any spoilers. The best way to watch this episode is to not know a thing about what's going to happen and just let your mind go with the episode

I personally see this as the best Walking Dead episode to date. Even better than Shane's transformation in Season 2 and i know that is saying a lot and this is because of the emotions, the unexpected and just the outright confrontation that makes you root like you've never rooted

This is my first ever review and I just wanted to share my views on an absolute, brilliant mid-season finale. ROLL ON FEBRUARY
