Did You Know?


Walkers that turned because they died from the virus were given a different look. Special contact lenses created the effects of hemorrhaging eyes. See more »


While the characters are out clearing the fence by stabbing walkers through the chain link, Karen forcefully jabs her weapon toward a walker and mimics the same force required to withdraw it from a skull but nothing is there. They forgot to add a walker head and she ends up stabbing into thin air. See more »


[first lines]
Karen: [Karen and Tyreese lay in bed together in their prison cell] What are you thinking about?
Tyreese Williams: Yesterday. Zach. I can't stop.
Karen: Yeah, me neither.
Tyreese Williams: It used to be we all had acquaintances. Just people moving in and out of your life. No big. See them down the road sometime. Now... a handful of people you know, and that's it. They might as well be the only people left in the world.

Under My Skin
21 October 2013 | by jackwhiteyoSee all my reviews

In the premiere of season 4, we had an even mix of both action and character development. However in this episode, the writers decided to go for the more emotional route rather than just having the episode turn into a bloodbath.....and I absolutely loved it! There were some riveting action scenes in this episode (the D Block scene stands out the most)but the reason why I enjoyed this episode so much was the way it made me feel; with Rick in particular. There was so much emotion between the characters which is what made the episode feel so real.They seem to be doing a very interesting side story between the two little girls at the moment, that I'm guessing will play into the larger plot which I'm excited for. Also there's the new threat that needs to be addressed! I won't name what it is for people who want to read a review that isn't spoiler heavy but trust me....It doesn't look good for the group. The promos for the next episode suggests there are going to be A LOT of zombies so they really do seem to be doing this season justice in terms of pacing and keeping the show interesting. Just hope they can keep it up. This episode has been rated highly, and rightly so. It goes down as one of the shows best for me.
