Carol is alive! Rick and everyone else greets her back into the group with hugs and happiness until she sees the baby and realizes what became of Lori. It definitely pulls at the heartstrings as she mourns her friend. Outside, Michonne almost didn’t make it as the walkers finally realized she was alive, her bleeding gunshot wound gave her away just before she passed out from pain. Luckily, Carl and Rick decided she was worth saving and pulled her into the prison.
Meanwhile, back in Woodbury Merle has taken to torturing Glenn about the location of the group but Glenn isn’t giving it up. The Governor takes care of Maggie through intimidation by threatening rape; all I thought during that scene was, “Kick him in the balls!” Andrea, on the other hand, is blissfully unaware of the torturing but has been deemed worthy of new information about Woodbury via the Governor about their scientific research of the walker disease. Apparently, they have been studying a dying man and his ability to retain cognitive abilities as he slips into zombieland population one. The scientist is not convinced that the disease removes all human behavior rather displaces it into the unconscious. When he tests that theory he makes the mistake of untying this new walker and is nearly bitten before Andrea quickly stabs the guy through the skull.
As all of this is going on, Rick, Darryl, Michonne, and the prisoner dude, Oscar, take off to Woodbury to retrieve Glenn and Maggie. They encounter trouble along the way as there seems to be a plethora of walkers in this area, we later hear The Governor call it the Red Zone. They accidentally come across a survivor while trying to hide from a swarm of walkers which ends up bad news for that guy who ends up zombie food in order for the rescue crew to get away. We leave this episode knowing that the Rickinator is almost at Woodbury’s door so the showdown will begin next week! I can’t wait to see what happens next week and where everyone’s loyalties lie. Will Andrea come back to the group? Will Darryl ditch Rick for his brother? The suspense is killing me! I can’t wait for next week, keep watching and feel free to comment your predictions about the next episode.
