Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Not sure if this is an upcoming storyline in the comics, but looking at the setup in Woodbury, I have to wonder why Rick and the gang aren't trying to do a similar thing themselves-- find a main street in some small town somewhere, block off either end to keep the walkers out, and then live comfortably inside. Doesn't seem all that complicated.

Obviously food would still be an issue, but the people of Woodbury obviously figured it out so they probably could too.

At the time they came upon the prison, Rick had considerably less numbers for fortifying a position like that than the Gov. did. The protection the prison walls & cells offered seemed pretty worthwhile

I thought Andrea would make off with his truck, too, but then I realized that the Governor may have had the keys with him, and who knows if Andrea can hot wire a vehicle?

Andrea should have at least slashed the truck's tires with her knife.

She should have slashed the tires, but more importantly, when she was in sight of the prison, she should have kept going. Stopping is what caused her predicament.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

And now that she has chosen to side with the prison gang she no longer looks clean. Seems to be some strange side effect.

To me it looked like Andrea was completely exhausted by the time she got to the prison. It appeared she tried to call to Rick but she couldn't speak at all. She barely made a peep.

Tyrese is cool. I hope he and his wife become part of the main group. I loved the scene where he was practicing shooting at the walkers.
Has it been established that is is wife or his sister?

Regarding episode - I liked it as well. I think the point of this episode was to reaffirm the fact that the Governor has completely lost it.

Also IMO to setup where Milton is going to die because he's betrayed the Governor.

Yes! If the key was not in the ignition, then as you say, slash tires, pull wires--anything, so even if the governor caught her, the truck not functioning would give Andrea a second chance to fight...escape..

The reason i'm not buying her being exausted stems from the conclusion of season 2: Andrea was running around the farm shooting zombies, then she was still running--literally--the next morning before being rescued by Michonne. If she could run all night long while fighting a zombie herd (a herd which offers no time to rest), her little walk/spint across a field to a building, then back to the field was not an Olympic event.

She had enough juice to run to prison.

My sense was that Andrea thought the Governor was trapped in the wherehouse with the zombies and may not escape. Also, while it was logical for her to do as you and several others are saying to the truck, I got the impression that she just wanted to get the fuck out of there - so sabotaging the truck just wasn't on her mind.

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 and that the Governor couldn't die this early at the hands of Zombies, someone needs to take revenge against him and it was very unlikely he would die before the last episode of the season (or at least not before the end of the Penultimate episode of the season)
