Anyone else think that Mazzara was fired/left as showrunner because he wanted to end the governor/prison arc at the end of this season and the producers didn't? It sure seemed like things were set up to the point where the storyline should have concluded and now we have another season of him/it.
That'd be a good bet. Continuing the Governor arc is a mistake considering that the character is barely a character; he's always been a messily written villain and I really don't think we need him sticking around any longer.
Yeah would have liked them to have killed the govenor ending his story and have them move on from the prison and see whats left of the world yet we have the prison again all next season.

I'm doubting it will be at the prison all next season + the Woodbury and Prison sets I'm sure were expensive so AMC want's to milk it for what they can.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

According to Robert Kirkman's TV Guide interview they planned on keeping the governor alive into the 4th season before they even cast the character.

I'm not sure what the Governor and two guys are going to able to do against the prison group next season. They're so out manned it's not even funny.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I don't think it will just be the Governor and 2 men. I think they will join forces with other devolving survivors.

When they were still on the farm the kid they had tied in the barn (I forget his name right now) said he was part of a group of about 30 men who had very violent methods. They would know about the residents of the farm and would want their own form of revenge.

The graphic novels depict several different groups of survivors. These 3 won't be on their own for long.

With all those people I hope they finally fix the hole in the wall and reclaim the rest of the prison. If they grab a generator or two from Woodbury, maybe then can get the cafeteria up and running.
...don't forget the solar panels which line the dividers on Woodbury's streets.

They just need to find someone to go in there and clean out the freezer/toilet.

Do you think people complain too much to like the series?

Randall was the name of the kid Shane murdered.

That's how the Governor will leave the series; attack with a new group of deviant survivors, and end up meeting his end while killing some of Rick's group along the way. I guess it is not a stretch for fans to prepare for more tragedy for longtimers in season 4.

Yeah, but he's a means to an end--the end of some of Rick's group. He has to strike a final, painful blow, and I can understand why the producers did not want a neat wrap-up to an arc at the end of the season (as in the CDC or the farm battle).

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

This was the best ending I've experienced in a great while.
Rick chose to live and The Goveronor chose to die. He comes back from a rout as his conscripts begin talking revolt; he can't go back to Woodbury with a stinging defeat and a grumbling "army" and obviously he can't regroup and go back to the Prison so, 27 deaths - and a couple of anus clenching henchmen - later, he rides off into season 4. Most likely with Randall's old group...
Meanwhile Rick brings back a busload of new cast members (hopefully along with a bunch of food, and supplies like as was mentioned, a generator) and no longer sees Lori as he has chosen the correct path.

I think the show will jump ahead a year or so - sure, you grow up fast in the apocalypse, but Carl's character should still not be shaving quite yet - and we will find the Prison a functioning community albeit on the lookout for more threats than from simple walkers.
The walkers are just dead; the Governor and his ilk are the walking dead. Rick and Company have chosen to live.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Am hoping they do a time jump to solve the issue of Carl looking real old in the past 8 months of the show (was 8 right?). I wonder if the first halve of next season will wrap up the current storylin e and the 2nd half to introduce a new threat.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

The Governor's scariest trait isn't that he is unpredictably crazy. I pretty much got that idea the 1st time he sat down to enjoy a little aquarium skull tv time. His scariest trait is that he can coax people. If those two guys are willing to ride along with him after seeing what he's capable of, then it's possible for the Gov. to amass a new group, because unlike Rick's group has been of late, the Gov sucks people in with skill

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I've seen it all over the net that David Morrisey (The Governor) will be back as a regular next season. So I guess we should expect to see him in the majority of the season.
As for the finale, while it wasn't the big epic battle I was expecting, I thought it was a great overall episode.
While I can see why Carl shot the kid, I really don't think that is the kind of thing a father wants to see his son do. It was one situation where I could see both sides and I honestly don't know which way I would have gone.
While the confrontation at the prison wasn't the huge battle I was expecting, it did lead to a incredibly shocking moment as The Governor killed his people.
As for the two guys going with him, I took as them being terrified that he would kill him to if they didn't go with him
I really liked that we actually got the positive moment as we saw the Woodbury people brought to the prison. I loved the symbolize of it happening as the sun was rising. It really was a new day.
I never thought I would say this, but they actually made me feel bad when Andrea died. I kind of wonder what would have become of her character if she had lived. I could see all of this bringing about some pretty major changes in her.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season Finale Shatters More Records; Watched By 12.4M

The Walking Dead Season 3 finale was watched by 12.4 million viewers last night on AMC. That and the 8.1 million the zombie drama drew in the adults 18-49 demographic were highs for the series. Written by now-departed showrunner Glen Mazzara, the finale on Sunday was up from the 9 million viewers who watched the show’s Season 2 finale last March. The series’ viewership last night and 18-49 result topped both the night and the week in total viewers and the demo. The Walking Dead pulled in 10.2 million viewers for its midseason finale December 2 last year. The record-breaking series garnered 12.3 million viewers for its February 11 Season 3 winter return, with 6.8 million in the 18-49 demo. Those numbers had been series highs.
The Walking Dead‘s Season 3 average in adults 18-49 is beating everything else on TV this season, including heavyweights like The Big Bang Theory, American Idol, The Voice and Modern Family.
Wow!

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

ETA: ^ Cool!

The Kid should have taken the look on Carl's face seriously, he might have made it through the encounter alive.

How long did Shane act as 'daddy' to him? Sure, Carl didn't hesitate to put Shane down when he threatened his Father after turning but I think all that time Surviving with Shane leading has set the example for Carl about what works for survival pretty deep into his consciousness. Rick HAS to try to reboot Carl's sense of compassion but I fear it's a long and possible futile endeavor he faces.

Poor Andrea.

Someone up-thread asked what happened to the 50., wasn't it attached to the truck the governor and his goon squad drove off in? Yeah agree, they'll be back with greater numbers and the surprise factor is gonna be their side. Watch your back, Rick!

Poor, poor Andrea.

I felt the prison assault was a little weak in execution but I am not bent out shape over it. It happened so fast I might have missed something; did the guy with the grenade launcher get taken out by the trap? Must have 'cause he wasn't using it to fire upon the ambushers (yes, that's not a word) on the catwalk.

Poor, pooooor Andrea. I was kinda disappointed, when after the governor stabbed Milton and left, that we're taken back to her story at all. Yes I understand it needed official closure but I had already imagined her torn apart by that time. She had already paid the price for her mistakes in my imagination so when it finally cut back to her, after I had closed that chapter in my head, it sucked. I felt like I was watching Jadzia Dax's (IMO) stupid death scene all over again.

Oh, yeah, I heard the noise after the shot to be an ejected shell as well.
