So at some point we know Andrea will have to make a choice. All the "hrumph I hate Andrea" kicking rocks aside, they could make the obvious choice which is Andrea is still really a part of Ricks group after she she's the truth behind the Governor or they play off her liking the "fights" and her character loses her humanity and she becomes a part of the Governors machine. Either way could make an interesting story line and I'm sure they will go with the obvious choice; I just hope it doesn't make for an anti climactic ending to this chapter of the Governors involvement in the story.

It would be hard to top what happens to the Governor in the books.

Had to be a mid-season finale because the upcoming town bloodbath was too much for them to produce after the prison takeover bloodbath. I don't expect answers, just a wind-up.

The show isn't even about zombies anymore. Unless there are dozens together, they're an inconvenient nuisance.

I'm excited for these groups to finally meet up. Merle and Daryl reunited. Andrea reuniting with Rick's group. Expect some major character deaths in the mid season finale!

The TV show wouldn't survive if it was JUST about zombies - and that's what makes it so good .

This is true, I tried to explain this to my friend that believes the pace of the show has slowed down from the last two seasons. I told him they are getting more deep into the characters rather than just killing zombies

Plus the group has learned to deal with zombies in a more efficient manner. So even if they encounter a herd of them, it's not as big a deal anymore. This season the writers are out to show that the living are a greater threat to each other than the dead are to them.

Havn't the zombie killings increased substantally this season? Maybe we have been desensitized to the zombie kills. Glen's scene with the chair and the zombie was entertaining at least....lol

Spoiler


Welp, I posted what i thought and think what was going to happen but the spoiler code blew it up so I'm too lazy to type again. So, to summarize. The show is close to being similar to the book. For those who read the books, it takes a certain swap and we'll see the same survivors as the book. I wonder if they'll go in that direction.

Nasty. If anything, Carol is Daryl's thought to be dead mother :lol: . But seriously, Daryl can do way better. Too bad the only hot chick is taken by Glenn. Maybe he'll form a relationship with Andrea, or even Michonne.

I would prefer if Daryl stayed single. I just think that if romance comes into the picture for him, it'll somehow ruin this character.

I wouldn't mind if Carol is more of a mother figure for him though.

Why do people only think 1 black person can be on the show at once? The show takes place in the Atlanta area there are tons of black people.

That would be fine if ANY of the characters were likeable! I'm finding it a hard time with the super cheesy acting. Seriously what character is likeable?? Rick? Nope. Daryl? Yawn. Carl? Lame. I guess Glenn's okay. Maggie and her dad are annoying as hell. Pretty much leaves the Governer and Merle. They are actually watchable.

I don't really know why I keep watching, I guess it's because my die-hard friends who've read the comics say "JUST WAIT MAN".... then each week I'm like, okay. So a couple zombies came. And people cried and overacted. I did enjoy the ending where Lori died but I'm struggling other than that.

I like how you choose the two 'ruthless/bad' people as the only watchable ones.

The vibe I keep getting here is - that people just want to see a bunch of hardnosed people killing a bunch of zombies.

When really -- that is NOT what 'The Walking Dead' is about. It is about people surviving a world, where there is no hope, there is no future, there is structure.

I haven't watched any of season 3 yet, but I have them all on my PVR. I have however, read the first 9 graphic novels in the last week. Anyone who's a fan of the show, I highly recomend them to you. I never read comics growing up, so reading these is new to me. Even if you don't like readin comics, I recomend giving at least the first one a try.

Jeez, if you don't like the show then why are you watching?? I like the actors and the characters are great, so I don't know what you are talking about. "A couple of zombies came and people cried??" The story is now more than about zombies and the story line becomes more interesting each season.

Shane and the Governor, the latter fairly quick.

Oh c'mon. Two guys in 8 months? Definitely not a big deal... especially considering how lonely you must feel after losing all of your loved ones.

I'm still amazed that there arent more black people on this show. It takes place in Georgia!

Still curious about who was watching Carol while she was practicing on the dead walker. Cant be Merle or anyone on the Governor's side.

I also kinda wanna know more about Michionne. Who were the two walkers she traveled with? Were they family? They weren't there to ward off other walkers because when she had walker guts on her later on (when she arrived at the prison), she was surprised that the walkers weren't paying any attention to her.

Also, here's a cheeky meme. Gonna use spoilers because there may an F bomb.

I thought the person watching carol was the one prisoner Rick let go that opened the gate. As far as Michonne's minions it seems that it was part of her family, Im sure they'll revisted that later, and they were used to carry her supplies when she and Andrea left the meat locker. Off topic but how do you open spoliers? It doens't do anything when i click them.
