Storyline

The Governor convinces his new community that it is in their best interests to take over the prison and if necessary, use force to do so. Not everyone is comfortable with that approach - Lilly and Meghan stay behind, with tragic consequences. The Governor and his crew appear at the prison and has two bargaining chips with him - Herschel and Michonne are his prisoners. He tells Rick to be out by sundown. Rick for his part tries to reason with him but the die is cast. In the ensuing battle, many - from both sides - are killed. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

During the fight scene between Rick and the Governor, respective actors Andrew Lincoln and David Morrissey insisted that they film the scene themselves instead of using stunt people. This created a genuineness because the actors have worked together for so long. See more »

Goofs

At around 35:20 Daryl is pinned down between some of the Governor's men and some walkers, so he takes cover behind a filing cabinet, which are made out of thin sheet metal. It shows bullets hitting the cabinet (by the way bullets don't make sparks when they hit metal objects) but not penetrating it. As filing cabinets are made of either thin sheet metal or aluminum they would not stop a bullet from even a handgun, let alone a bullet from a AR-15 which fires small very high velocity bullets, they would of gone right through it and killed Daryl in an actual fire fight.

Quotes

Rick Grimes: [points to Tara] You. You in the ponytails. Is this what you want? Is this what any one of you want?
Mitch Dolgen: What we want is what you got. Period. Time for you to leave, asshole.
Rick Grimes: Look, I've fought him before. And after, we took in his old friends. They've become leaders in what we have here. Now you put down your weapons, walk through those gates... you're one of us. We let go of all of it, and nobody dies. Everyone who's alive right now. Everyone's who's made it this far. We've all done the worst kinds...

Brilliant Mid Season Finale
1 February 2015 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

What a mid season finale.

Plot In A Paragraph: As Daryl finds out about what went down with Carol. The Governor convinces his new friends that it is in their best interests to take over the prison and if needed, use force to do so. Not everyone is comfortable with that approach, but go along with the majority. The Governor and his crew appear at the prison and he has two massive bargaining chips with him. (Herschel and Michonne are his prisoners) He tells Rick to be out by sundown. Rick tries to reason with him, but The Governor is unwilling to listen. In the ensuing battle, their are casualties on both sides.

I'm gutted about a major characters death, they will be missed,The entire end credits, plus various production company logo animations, are played in utter silence is very fitting.

I'm also still upset about the Carol situation, hopefully she will come back, and be reunited with her pal Daryl. If it were not for the two episodes about The Governor, Thai would have been a flawless first half to the season.
