Well, there you go, last week I whinged about the lack of Andrea (Laurie Holden) in Season 3 of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and finally we got to catch up of what’s been happening in her world. Which turns out to be a whole lot of sickness, swords, armless camouflage and jumping from the frying pan, into the fire and back again!
Since I haven’t read any of the comics, I didn’t know much about the Governor (David Morrissey), but I had heard a few people hinting at his arrival. It was nice to finally meet him and find out what all the fuss was about, that’s for sure – although Michonne (Danai Gurira) would disagree (if she ever opened up her mouth and talked, that is)!
All the way through this episode there is an ongoing sense of dread. We just know Michonne is right in her suspicions about this new-found Utopia, yet, at first, we are lulled into a false sense of security. Everyone loves the Governor and praise his actions for protecting his motley crew of survivors.
Slowly, the episode unfolds and we start to see the chinks in this new idyllic world and when we witness the brutal slaying of some military guys that are left overs from the episode’s opening helicopter scene, we just know that poor Andrea is going to get a tad more whiny before this season is over. Michonne will probably pout and frown so much that she will look like some sort of marine life.
It’s at this point that I began to miss the normal crew. I missed Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and her constant panic over her baby and her crumbling relationship with Rick Andrew Lincoln). I missed Glenn (Steven Yuen) and his girlfriend, Hershel (Scott Wilson) and his new role as the team pirate and most of all I missed Daryl (Norman Reedus) and his crossbow.
Which brings me to how it all links up. Remember Daryl’s brother Merle(Michael Rooker)? Yeah, that obnoxious, racist redneck that lopped his own hand off to escape zombies. Well, he’s found the Governor also – and they are perfect for each other. He remembers Andrea too. I can see this ending badly.
And then, just when you think it can’t get any worse, the episode ends with this image….
Which world do you prefer to watch? Rick and his Ricktatorship or The Governor and his Goons?
