The Walking Dead mid-season finale was awesome! There are some new people in the woods behind the prison leading walkers into the blown out backside of the compound.  Don’t forget there is a limited amount of the group left there as Rick, Darryl, Michonne, and Oscar go for blood in Woodbury.  The Governor is attempting to keep Andrea in the sex haze so she doesn’t catch on that people from her old group are alive and being held captive by Merle and Philip (The Governor).  Luckily, Maggie and Glenn are not pansies and are willing to fight back before being slaughtered by the brainwashed Woodbury militia.  This catches the attention of our recovery team and they begin opening fire in order to recover their people.  The only person caught in the crossfire is our one expendable character, Oscar, as the group makes its way over the Woodbury wall.

Back at the prison, creepy prisoner dude (Axel) salivates over the 17-year-old girl, not surprising but still gross.  I was wondering when they were going to introduce that type of storyline, although the exchange between Axel and Carol about her not being a lesbian was pretty hilarious.  Carol and Axel “keeping watch in the tower” – is that what the kids are calling it these days?  Darryl won’t be happy if I’m right about that.

Oh man, that scene where Michonne finds the Governor’s daughter…intense!  This scene was so awesome that the buzzer was going off on the stove for 5 minutes before I turned it off because I didn’t want to miss a beat.  Michonne is ruthless!  Yuck, glass stabbed eyeball – call me, pirate Governor.  Arrrrrr!  To conclude this eventful episode, the Governor pits the entire town against Merle and Darryl claiming they had a conspiracy to attack the town.  This guy is so messed up and Andrea is just too accommodating.  Wake up, woman.  Now we have to wait two months for the conclusion of this rivalry!  Waiting for February is going to be torturous.
