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

Weakest Season Finale from all times
6 August 2013 | by mr_mello61See all my reviews

Wow... what a disappointment. Coming from an incredibly slow second season where people just couldn't stand that farm anymore, the third season promised a lot from the first few episodes. But all of our hopes were thrown away starting with the third to last episode.. The one where they chat on a table during the entire episode, OK to be honest they killed one walker lurking around as a comic relief maybe. Up until the 13th episode things had gradually piled up so that us viewers would believe an all out war would be inevitable at some point, climaxing after Rick and Carl found all those guns, and we all saw it: Assault rifles, grenades, shot guns, explosives even body armor for crying out loud. Than o the second to last episode nothing happens, leaving the season finale as a promise of war. Far from it, the governor assembles his group of people to invade the prison, they all come in at 100% blowing the tower, busting through the gates. They start making their way in and I was certain Ricks people would ambush them at any moment and just show some firepower but instead they all bail out at the sound of three miserable firecrackers, can't even call those a bomb. Think about it.. After they all bailed out, you'd think Rick's group would follow them and fire ONE bullet … but no. The governor himself had to kill nearly all his man just so we could get some action on the season finale. Resuming lamest season finale I've ever seen from all times.
