Storyline

The Governor convinces his new community that it is in their best interests to take over the prison and if necessary, use force to do so. Not everyone is comfortable with that approach - Lilly and Meghan stay behind, with tragic consequences. The Governor and his crew appear at the prison and has two bargaining chips with him - Herschel and Michonne are his prisoners. He tells Rick to be out by sundown. Rick for his part tries to reason with him but the die is cast. In the ensuing battle, many - from both sides - are killed. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

During the fight scene between Rick and the Governor, respective actors Andrew Lincoln and David Morrissey insisted that they film the scene themselves instead of using stunt people. This created a genuineness because the actors have worked together for so long. See more »

Goofs

At around 35:20 Daryl is pinned down between some of the Governor's men and some walkers, so he takes cover behind a filing cabinet, which are made out of thin sheet metal. It shows bullets hitting the cabinet (by the way bullets don't make sparks when they hit metal objects) but not penetrating it. As filing cabinets are made of either thin sheet metal or aluminum they would not stop a bullet from even a handgun, let alone a bullet from a AR-15 which fires small very high velocity bullets, they would of gone right through it and killed Daryl in an actual fire fight.

Michonne: I'm gonna kill you.
The Governor: No, you won't.

One hell of an episode!!!
3 December 2013 | by chandar-molesSee all my reviews

This is my 1st ever review in IMDb...I would consider this episode to be one of the best so far in this series...lot of twists...it indirectly says that no character is permanent..thats the thing that keeps Walking Dead a class apart from other series...if you think its high time this series needs a twist or a change(from the last couple of episodes) then this is it...of course it has a few loop holes here and there(as we know nothing is perfect)..but its these kind of episodes that keep the story and our interests alive !!! of course its going to be a mix of emotions for sure...I have to say that the pillar of support for Season4 has been the background score...this episode is no exception...waiting for Feb 2014 !!!
