The Governor again rouses his people to attack the prison. Tyreese and his sister refuse to join them. Before leaving however, he beats Milton to a pulp and leaves him to die after stabbing him several times in the room where Andrea has been tied to a chair. She has only a short time to set herself free before Milton dies and re-animates as a biter. The Governor's group attack the prison and meet little or no resistance. It appears that Rick and the others have left but its all a ruse. The Governor retreats and when his people refuse to regroup and attack again, he takes his revenge on them. Rick and the others decide to push their advantage but have a change of heart when they see what the Governor has done. Written by garykmcd

When Rick, Michonne, and Daryl arrive back at the prison with the bus full of people from Woodbury it is shown in one shot to be a yellow school-bus with hastily added metal and wood siding on the sides as armor. In this shot, it drives past the overturned gray bus that served the prison. In the next shot, the bus shown arriving at the prison yard is the gray prison bus, without the makeshift-armor, and the yellow school bus is nowhere to be seen. See more »

Below expectations
2 April 2013 | by alameliSee all my reviews

What a disappointment. The beginning of the season was good, but second half - nearly a disaster, and it all finished with one of the worst episodes ever.

I really like Morrissey, but his character in the show was transformed from insidious leader to a psychopathic and revengeful jerk. Woodbury, which could become a second group of survivors, equally interesting, is in fact a group of faceless sheeps. Michonne - a unique and odd personality - in the last several episodes is as plain as everybody else.

The development of the final episode was slow and predictable, several times I expected that creators will surprise us, but they haven't. I don't understand why they need walkers in this show, if all the main characters are doing - is walking around and talking.
