Don’t forget that the end of season three, part one ended with our fearless group coming down hard on “The Governor” and the town of Woodbury to save Glenn and Maggie.  It all ends with ultimate death match: Darryl vs. Meryl – who wins?  Neither because the Calvary comes back to save the day – boosh – hang ‘em high Rick!

Oh snap, Meryl left the town’s barricade wide open to the walkers – too bad it didn’t turn into a mass invasion.  Instead, the citizens of Woodbury revolt against their Governor and insist on leaving the town. What’s with the dumb B, Andrea?  After all this crap and Philip (Governor) admitting to holding her friends and shooting at them then reducing her to a common whore, she still insists that he “not drive her away.”  Lady, he’s a nutcase – get out while you still can!

It isn’t all roses and sunshine with Rick’s group either, Darryl walks off with Meryl and Glenn is pissed at Rick for not killing the Governor. Carol is upset that Darryl is gone (unspoken love – so powerful) and Rick is clearly not ready to care for his baby or the new survivors (the man needs a mental health day).  Hershel is such a good man, everyone’s healer in every way – apparently Scott Wilson (Hershel) is like this in real life, according to Emily Kinney (Beth); see our interview.  Happy to see Beth have a little bit more to say this episode too – go Emily!

As for the new folks: Rick’s conscience and Hershel are about to get through to him until Lori’s (?) ghost shows up to haunt him causing an exodus of the foursome.  This show is so amazingly written and performed – I am riveted every minute.  If you haven’t gotten into this show yet, give it a shot, I’m telling you it is worth your while.  I can’t wait ‘til next Sunday!
