Storyline

At the prison, everyone is surprised by the arrival of Michonne but they have no intention of letting her stay and join the group. She tells them about Glenn and Maggie being taken to Woodbury and offers to lead them there. She makes no mention of Andrea or Daryl's brother. In Woodbury, Merle interrogates Glenn rather forcefully but he refuses to tell him where the others can be found. The Governor decides to interrogate Maggie himself and has more success. Meanwhile, the Governor has asked Andrea to help Milton with an experiment. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Michonne tells Rick she knew where the prison was because Glenn and Maggie mentioned the direction to the prison and that it was a "straight shot". However Glenn and Maggie never even knew Michonne there and never mentioned the prison's location. All she heard was that they were living at the prison. The fact Michonne found the prison isn't hard to imagine, its location would be printed on any local map and/or road signs could have directed her there. See more »

Another Fantastic Episode!
26 September 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the seventh episode of the third season of Walking Dead and it's utterly brilliant and it ranks up there as one of my favorite episodes this season, along with the fourth episode. This episode doesn't pack as much as an emotional wallop, but it still does the job. Also, this is the episode we truly see the kind of man Glenn really is. He was tortured somewhat in this episode, but he definitely held his ground against the intimidating Merle.

In this episode, "When the Dead Come Knocking," Michonne arrives at the prison, but the group has no intention in letting her stay. But when she tells them that Glenn and Maggie were kidnapped, she offers to lead an expedition to Woodbury. Meanwhile, Glenn is tortured by Merle but has no success. The Governor than questions Maggie, but is able to have some success.

Overall, this is an excellent episode and if there is any indication, we may see a full-on war between the prison and Woodbury, which would be interesting to see. This is another action-packed episode and one of my favorite ones to date. I rate this episode 10/10.
