Carl's in for some fun. The kid he shot was the asthmatic son of the survivor of the massacre. Can't wait till she finds out.

I do.

I thought this was a great finale. It was a great conclusion to this part of the story-- much better than a forced cliffhanger. Rick is no longer seeing Lori and the sun rises on a new day at the prison. The Governor is still alive, but his town is dead and he's stuck with two guys that are pretty dubious about him. I knew Milton was doomed, but I was kind of surprised that Andrea died (poor Andrea and poor Michonne)-- and I was relieved that Herschel and Tyreese's sister are still among the living.

This continues to be one of the best shows ever.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Since she followed the governor on a raid onto their home I don't know what right she has to complain about them defending themselves.

Edit: I need to quote more lol

And I'm glad to see that some people still actually enjoy the show . Lately no one seems to have anything good to say about it.

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.
The exec producer, Gale Hurd was quoted in the LA Times today sayig that season 4 would focus more on the present danger -- i.e., zombie attacks. FWIW, Hurd also said that Mazzaro left because negotiations for a new contract didn't work out (paraphrasing).

I hope this isn't true. Too many zombie attacks, which I find boring after a while, is what drove me away from the show at the end of season 2. The season 3 head butting with the Governor and Woodbury made WD must-see TV for me. Although I agree that unless they can come up with some fresh angle, the Governor's storyline has pretty much played out other than how he will die.

Anyway, I much prefer the human conflict over zombie conflict. Better the walkers be used as a backdrop against the human storylines.

Hurd said something else that really surprised and intrigued me, that "The Walking Dead" was a reference not to the walkers but to the humans who are left. I'm sure you vets of the show and the comic knew this, but it was news to me.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Was anybody killed by a walker in this episode? I can't remember one. Was it just people killing people?

I think Carl has already independently discovered the Governor's expression of wisdom; "You kill or you die..."

If it was just walkers they had to deal with, Woodbury would be the place. But with human enemies as well.. I would stick with the prison.
This was the thinking of the writers, too. Robert Kirkman raised the same points in reply to that question from TV Line.

Was that the gun on the back of one of the Woodbury trucks? If so, it was still at the prison at the end of the episode. The truck drove over a spike strip during the attack, forcing them to leave it behind.

Mazzara himself said in interviews before this season started that the prison, at the very least, would remain through season four.

Yes, Mazzara's contract expired, so he wasn't fired. Considering AMC's reputation with showrunners, he probably wasn't satisfied with the amount of control he was given over the show.

Carol/Beth: They BOTH killed walkers! Go Beth! Nice to see that she can step up when needed.

Tyreese's sister: What is her name?
It wasn't the first time Beth had killed a walker. Poor girl keeps getting underestimated.

Also, Tyreese's sister is Sasha.

But the series is not the rest of AMC's lineup--the series is about "survival horror" (as Resident Evil is described), and if the walkers simply become wallpaper, the horror disappears.

Season two's big moments centered on zombie attacks, or their effect on the group: Sophia's fate, Dale's death, Shane wounding Otis, and the mass zombie attack which closed the season.

There's no horror in psychpaths; they're just annoying, and you want them to die quickly, as in the case of Shane and the Governor.

Oh, yeah, I heard the noise after the shot to be an ejected shell as well.
Yeah I listened to it again and it is thin, tinny and has little bounces at the end. Not a two-pound steel revolver hitting the deck. AND there's a metallic sound along with the shot, like an action working. Tsk, tsk.

You're right, I lost it in the first viewing but they did abandon it there.

I'm still enjoying it as much as ever. Unlike others, I've never really had a need for the writing to be as strong as that of Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones or something. I mean, we're talking about a zombie show based on a comic book here.

Even if some episodes might drag a bit more than others, I still find the world itself more than interesting enough to make up for it. And overall I think the writers have done a pretty solid job showing what life during the zombie apocalypse might actually feel like, and showing all the different and unpredictable ways people might react to it.

I was unsure/curious enough to search something out about this and, if you can believe it, found a site devoted to vehicles of The Walking Dead

http://walkingdead.wikia.com/wiki/Vehicles

The Humvee was carrying the .50 and you are right, it stuck on the spikes. Also according to them it "jammed" during the assault, but I don't remember that happening. (thank god for ODV) Anyway, HUGH asset for them if they can get it functioning again.

^ It jammed during the retreat out of the prison. One of the Woodburyians jumped on the back of the truck and starting to panic as it jammed. I'm not certain but I think he was shot by Glenn or Maggie as he was trying to get the weapon working.

Wow, so NONE of my predictions came true. I was pretty sad to see Milton go, I would've liked to have seen him join the prison group. I'm wondering where they're going to go with the Governor next season. Maybe he'll run into that violent group the dude in the bar was telling Rick about last year? Maybe he'll go even MORE batshit crazy and start up a religious cult ala Gul Dukat.

It was Alan, when he couldn't clear the jam he piled in to the other truck and escaped.
