The only real problem I had with this season was Glen and Maggie fighting for no reason. Neither of them was at fault, they just got humiliated/beaten, and then blamed each other for it.

I tolerated Andrea for the other seasons, and I felt she was supposed to be annoying. I didn't think they would kill her off, but atleast she learned not to hesitate any more, just as she died.

The whole point of that scene was somethign we already knew, that the Governers people were not battle hardened. Also, yes, the gun jammed, I remember seeing a guy beating the side of it.
What was really interesting there was the way he put them all down after. Was it for being cowardly? Was it because they could tell people the group went out of their way not to kill? Was it for witnessing him geting schooled stratigicly? (spelling?)
I think it's the last one. His plan failed and all these people saw him fail. An ego like his couldn't deal with that.

And now Supernatural isn't coming back until the 24th.

Good God, just get on with it! There's only a few episodes left in the season.

I thought the Governor just hates people he deems weak.

His people were too weak to follow through with the battle, so he killed them.

Milton was too weak to kill Andrea, so he killed him.

He believes that if he had been strong in the first place, then his daughter would still be alive.

The two guys he took with him failed as much as anyone else. Is it just that they're weak in the controlable way?


His people were too weak to follow through with the battle, so he killed them.

They were outclassed and cornered. Running was the only smart thing to to. Does his particular crazy keep him from seeing that? Yes, but it also makes them an extension of him. That's why he was so desperate to get Andrea back. It's not that she left the community. She left him. Her leaving was a reflection that all was not perfect with him.


Milton was too weak to kill Andrea, so he killed him.

From his point of view, maybe.


He believes that if he had been strong in the first place, then his daughter would still be alive.

He's a weasly leader archetype. Granted he's one done well, but its still what it is. The type that thinks their whole army lives in their two arms. When they failed that was his strength as a leader failing. That is why they had to die.

Cons: Looks like the majority of the season will still be in the prison.

Pros: We have like a thousand new people from Woodbury who don't matter and can be killed off.

Also I don't know who the fuck this guy is but he appears to be a new major character and I don't think there's any way he's not going to die.

It's like they're doing the whole Prison Chapter backwards, starting with the Governor and Lori dying. And then working on making the prison a place to live.

I didn't like the second half of season 3 but this looks like it might be enjoyable.

I'm watching the show first (and enjoying it) and reading the comic book second.

I will probably hate the show if I read the comic book first, because I'll be sitting there, constantly making notes about how much they messed up, or getting pissed off when I notice they changed something. I want to appreciate the show for what it is and not pick several holes in it.

I'm not surprised this thread is rather divided on the show. There are some silly things, but I think we all still like the show in some capacity. Discouraging others, by saying we'll eventually feel like all the time we spent watching the show was wasted, is bullshit.

Using that logic, or lack thereof, you'll be disappointed with everything eventually eventually you won't be interested in it as much as you were before.

Around season 2 the show became a completely independent thing loosely following the frame of the comic, and to compare them at this point is silly. They're both great in their own ways and having read a lot of the comic hasn't really taken away from the show for me.

[Season 3 spoilers] That would be an interesting plot twist seeing as how she's dead and whatnot.

well by where we are now in the show Hershal should be the next one to die by the comic books Canon then Glenn when they start with the Negan arc. of course I highly doubt it since they've fucked the show up pretty hard and put in to many filler episodes.

Can't say I'm excited the quality has somewhat fallen midway through season 3 and that had the most forgettable season finale I've ever seen. However its still a good zombie series overall crossing fingers in hopes they'll step their game up.

They took a hint when they killed Andrea. Hopefully they'll take another hint and give us what we want instead of more shots of people being upset. The show's at its best when it sticks close to the comic.

The Governor really has no reason to be alive anymore and he can't really do shit with his armada of 2 dudes, so if he gets dragged out as the main threat for another season I'll be pretty upset.

Shit though, I do really like the way they handled Rick losing his mind in season 3. Fingers crossed the writers keep it up.

I have never been so excited for a series to start back up again...will be a little disappointing if the group doesn't move away from the prison.

Forgot about this thing, I was going to post it earlier.

Also, I can't wait to see how Abraham will come in and bring in the conspiracy of government involvement with Eugene.
