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.

It's All Rotting Away
21 October 2013 | by mrxelementSee all my reviews

Alright so far so good starting off with the zombie kid having a entire buffet to himself then hits full blast of the walkers infecting the prison. My only gripe on this episode is why didn't anybody hear the zombie kid gurgling ugly sounds in the hallways at night. On the other hand, this season seems to be promising finally no governor problem, no Andrea, and no pointless scenes. It's all about surviving conflicting the problems in the prison. And what makes it worse is that a strange flu infecting everybody far worse then a bite, the prison fences are falling soon to be crawling with zombies, and people are dying more than ever. But also it makes me wonder in who the hell is feeding the zombies! I can't finally wait to see who's the dumb-ass that's doing it. Love it how all things are starting to heat up right away.
