Yea, it's easy for us to criticize after the fact, or being on the sidelines as the audience, but, Andrea doesn't know she's in a TV show nd that the Governor coouldn't die this early at the hands of Zombies, someone needs to take revenge against him and it was very lucky he would die before the last episode of the season (or at least not before the end of the Penultimate episode of the season)
Smart ass.
But...I was defending your position

I think some criticize because knowing the governor could escape (even if bitten), he would still come after her. From my view, all options are in play in a critical situation, and yes, if I could not start the truck, I would reach under the steering column and rip the wires, then bail. Remember, Andrea is running for her life--this was not another trip to negotiate. This was "it" for her, so to ensure escape, you do whatever is necessary.

On the other hand, i've already said she should not be so drained (based on performance in S2's finale) that burning shoe leather was beyond her capabilities. If anything, Andrea would have burned out right near the prison gates, and by that time, Rick's scope would spot her.

Oh, and we get that for the story's demands, the governor has to be around, but that can be accomplished whether Andrea is a captive or not, as nothing will stop the coming battle.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I'd like to know how he snuck up on her at the prison with that loud truck, with no background noise you could hear it coming from a mile away, if he parked it a mile away are we to believe he drug her all the way back without her escaping?
If he knocked her out did he hoof her all the way back to the truck? If so that must have been a real chore.

BTW another fluff episode IMO, we could have gotten the point with the whole thing in about 1/4th of the time it took.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

So let's look at Andrea's thought process for a second here.

A) The governor is dead
Ok, it's not necessary to do anything to his car. Nor could you really use it unless you went to get his keys.

B) The governor will survive
Andrea is on the other side of a large building. By the time she gets to the vehicle, he could already be there, or he could catch up to her while she's slashing tires. It's not a very smart move unless she was armed to defend herself.

Seems like she made the right choice to me. If she went back and he caught her there, people would probably be complaining about that too.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Has Andrea ever done anything intelligently? I'm serious. Can anyone remember anything Andrea has ever done that was intelligent & done intelligently? Let's start a list if we can, because I'm drawing a blank

So I've just resigned myself to the fact that she's a complete dumbass. The closest I can recall her coming to a smart move was copying Michonne's walker pet idea, that got her to the prison the 1st time, & even then she had a helper, a helper who informed on her the whole time

The only consistent trait she has is stupidity. That stunt with the door was the closest to smart she can get, & even that didn't work

Her dumbest movie is still shooting Daryl in the head on the farm when everyone was telling her not to shoot.

The actress still gets a ton of hate mail for that!

People would find her more tolerable if she had been caught trying to slash the tires instead of just leaving the truck alone and being caught at the last moment. Even if she had failed, at least she would have tried to be smart by damaging the truck.

It's his sister, according to the Walking Dead wiki.

I've been one of Andrea's biggest critics throughout the show, but this is pretty harsh. Really, all the criticism of her in this episode has been a bit much considering we finally see her decide to turn on the Gov.

Also: she called Lori on her ridiculous bullshit about "Oh, us wimmins should stick to cookin's and cleanin's while the Big Strong Men protect us" last season, so there's that. Only time until this ep I've really rooted for her.

And I'm not getting the "filler" complaints; I wouldn't call any episodes we've gotten so far filler.

I'm pretty sure I've seen references to her being his sister on other sites.

Well, and it's come up a couple times in the show; at the very least definitely in this last one.

"Andrea, you ignorant slut!" should be in the next Walking Dead meme.

I'll agree that some folks have gone too far in maligning her, offensively so even, and that it's been possible, a time or two, to empathize with her, or to get behind her once in a blue moon, but all of that still doesn't offer up anything to suggest she isn't a moron. I don't think I'm being too harsh at all. I'm just calling her stupid & gullible.

She has never to my knowledge done anything intelligently, & that includes finally figuring out the Gov. is not someone to support. She let herself be dumb, & turn a blind eye for as long as she possibly could, to the point that it was undeniable, before she came around to what was obvious.

I cut Andrea a fair shake all the way up to when she shot at Daryl like an idiot, & from that point on it was just too hard to not continually ask "How stupid is this person going to get?" & she's gotten much more stupid since then. I don't think she deserves to suffer a Mengele session for her stupidity (& I figure she won't) but it's just too hard to accept that someone so dumb could survive this long, when simple bad luck does in smarter people all the time, like T-Dog or Dale
