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

One hell of an episode!!!
3 December 2013 | by chandar-molesSee all my reviews

This is my 1st ever review in IMDb...I would consider this episode to be one of the best so far in this series...lot of twists...it indirectly says that no character is permanent..thats the thing that keeps Walking Dead a class apart from other series...if you think its high time this series needs a twist or a change(from the last couple of episodes) then this is it...of course it has a few loop holes here and there(as we know nothing is perfect)..but its these kind of episodes that keep the story and our interests alive !!! of course its going to be a mix of emotions for sure...I have to say that the pillar of support for Season4 has been the background score...this episode is no exception...waiting for Feb 2014 !!!
