When we left The Walking Dead last week, the Governor had attacked, flooded the prison with Walkers, and left.
Tonight, we find our heroes back in their cell block, Walkers stroll the field outside.
Everyone knows the Governor will return. The pressure is on Rick, and as Hershel points out, he’s “slipping.” Even Carl tells him to step down and take a rest.
In Woodbury, Andrea tries to suss out what is happening. She wants to go to the prison and talk to her old gang. The Governor warns against it, telling her they are bloodthirsty. He tells her if she goes to the prison, to stay there.
Andrea leaves Woodbury, thinking the Governor is unaware of her escape. But Andrea recruits help from Milton, who tells the Governor, then goes with Andrea.
In one of the most gruesome parts of a gruesome show, the two-some de-arm and de-fang a Walker to use it the same way Michonne used her pets.
Along the way to the prison, they find the group of survivors that asked Rick if they could join our group at the prison. Rick went nuts at about that time and they quick departed. Milton takes the survivors to Woodbury, and Andrea goes on to the prison alone.
At the prison, Andrea tries to convince our group that they can come to terms with the Governor, even join her in Woodbury. They don’t bite, of course, and she does not seem to see the reality of just how evil the Governor truly is. Michonne tell her she is under the Governors spell. Andrea denies it. Andrea certainly likes her bad boys.
Milton brings the other survivors to Woodbury, and they tell the Governor they’ve been in the prison. The Governor asks for intelligence.
Back at the prison, Carol asks Andrea to kill the Governor when she returns to Woodbury, after lulling him to sleep by giving him “the time of his life.”
Andrea heads back to Woodbury.
At Woodbuy, Andrea tells the Governor that Michonne and Merle at at the prison, and that conditions are rough.
In the prison, things are dark, oppressive. Beth breaks out in song, her voice echoing in the cell block, singing “Hold On,” (by Tom Waits).
Rick tells Hershel and Daryl his going on a run tomorrow. He’ll be taking Michonne and Carl.
Back in Woodbury, Andrea slips from the Governor’s bed, gets a knife, approaches the Governor… then backs away.
That’s a wrap for tonight!
