Not My Favourite Episode
30 October 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: At the prison, Rick struggles to cope in his grief and heads off on his own inside the prison. Daryl and Maggie go off to find formula for the newborn baby. In Woodbury, the residents celebrate their survival with a town picnic. A suspicious Michonne tries to convince Andrea that they are really prisoners.

Rick (Andrew Lincoln) doesn't say a lot, but his actions speak louder than words and his is unstable to say the least. Determined not to lose another member of the team Daryl (Norman Reedus) is continuing to step up, and he is fast becoming my favourite character. He pays a touching (wordless) visit to Carols grave.

Michonne (Danai Gurira) continues to impress while Andrea (Laurie Holden) continues to be the most naive person on the show. Michael Rooker as Merle continues to be a lot of fun (even if his character is not entirely likable) One of the Governor's secrets is revealed too.
