After the abhorrent ambush of the soldiers, the Governor walks up to one of the shot soldiers laying on the ground and loots his AR-15 style rifle. The Governor then proceeds to repeatedly hit the solider's head with the stock of the rifle. After the first hit, the Governor lifts the rifle back up and there is now what appears to be blood on the stock of the rifle. In the next shot the Governor bends down to pick up his knife and there is no longer any blood on the rifle. The next shot the Governor is seen holding the rifle and the blood is on the rifle again. Lastly, When the Governor aims to shoot the fleeing solider, the blood has disappeared again. See more »


[first lines]
Lt. Welles: [the pilot Lt. Welles in the helicopter full of soldiers talks over the radio] Whiskey 1-2. Whiskey 1-2, do you copy? Going 180, close the distance, get back in contact!
Lt. Welles: [when the helicopter is shot at from below and starts to go down] Have faith, guys. I've gotten us through a lot more than some light turbulence.

A Civilization Rises From the Ashes!
19 September 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the third episode of the third season of the Walking Dead and even though it's a little different, it's still compelling because now we get to see the situation Andrea and her new friend come across with. We get to meet an interesting set of characters that are finally introduced to us, including the mysterious Governor. Not big on the action, but the characterization remains a high point of the season.

In this episode, "Walk with Me," Andrea and Michonne witness a helicopter crash and when they investigate, they meet a group of armed men as they're hiding in the bushes. But they are surprised by Merle and the group is taken back to the haven known as Woodbury where they meet the Governor and it seems like there is a whole community of people after all. Andrea thinks it is a nice place, but Michonne is not so sure.....

Overall, though we don't see Rick and the gang, we are still treated to a great episode that focuses on a side story and I fear it will become relevant soon enough. There is some action, but it's the characterization and the return of Merle, in the physical world, which carries the episode. Also, The Governor is an interesting character and one worth keeping an eye on. I rate this episode 9/10.
