Will Andrea wise up about the Governor?

Is this a rhetorical question?

This midseason finale bull needs to stop. I'm looking at you, Breaking Bad.

/But I still love you.

Oh, and I miss comic Andrea.

kronicfeld: If anything happens to Maggie, I will ragequit.


I'm wondering if that's why Maggie was growled-stripped by the Governor instead of the anticipated gangrape room. There's just so much that the audience will stand for, and I'm not talking about rapey-rape on basic cable. And since I have to include myself in ragequit crowd, I'm okay with this.

But even with flashes of of the anticipated greatness of the character, Michonne has just been okay compared to the hype.

The big story has been Carl. One offscreen shot has elevated him from early-Wesley/Adric status to Big Bad MutherKIlla Carl.

Oh, and Lori is dead.

/not been a boring first half

This!

I suspect the rescue squad will make it into Woodbury and they will find Glen and Maggie, beaten, but not broken. They will have inadvertently lead a wave of zombies to Woodbury (from the shack) giving them an unexpected, but very useful distraction. Merle and/or Andrea will confront Darryl and/or the rescue squad as they try to make it out of the fray and...CLIFFHANGER!

I dont think anything will happen to her, i read an interview with her talking about filming the season finale soon

I did not object to the scene with her and the governor last week. She has nice sideboobs.

I never knew that I could like Glenn and Maggie as much as I do, in a show about zombies no less. Normally in a zombie movie everyone is a douche and I don't mind them dieing, but not with this show. Daryl kicks ass too.

Yeah, they really don't want to off any of the seriously sympathetic characters at this point. Maggie, Glenn, Darryl, and Rick (and I suppose at this point, Carl) are all pretty central to most people's positive affect towards the show. I have made a point of NOT reading the graphic novels, so I don't know how this squares with their plot, but I know that losing any of them is going to seriously annoy me. And Michonne's simply too badass to get rid of.

But Andrea can die in a puddle of her own intestines as far as I care. I'd rather they keep The Governor's zombie daughter around as a major character, if I had to choose between them.

/can't imagine the zombie daughter is a major spoiler, but if so, then oops to anyone who's reading this thread who hasn't seen that ep yet.

all these characters are amazing in the novels (minus daryl since he's not in them). michonne and andrea are so badass compared to the show, and now with tyreese coming in? going to get goooood

He's being introduced this episode, there was a news post about it next week. Chad coleman from the wire will be playing him, and it looks like he has his daughter with him as well

Watch out, Rick, they have rifles that can shoot around corners.

According to the stupid comic books this is about where Rick dies.

I think they were trolling the audience. This version of the Governor is just different enough from the comic version that we don't really know how he'll react in any given situation. I think they knew we were anticipating it and that's why they didn't go through with it.

I'm rewatching season 3 as we speak. I think andrea is going to be vengeful as fark about the group leaving her.. At least that's her perception

That's how I see it going down, with the bonus of the rescue squad opening the front door to let the walkers in to kill of the the defenseless civilians.

This was on purpose to show how inept the guards are (similar to the "archer"), right?

serial_crusher: This whole "midseason finale" concept makes me stabby


Make perfect sense to me. You want to debut the show around Halloween, but if you do a normal length season, you eventually wind up hitting the holidays, and then NFL playoffs, and then Superbowl, which is going to kill ratings for a show that airs on Sunday evenings. In exchange for the show continuing to get ratings that can justify continued zombie carnage on screen, I don't mind them taking a few months off to avoid the conflicts. It's also way better than the shiat that they pulled with Breaking Bad, and the weird assed Doctor Who scheduling of the last few seasons.

I'm betting that's how the Gov meets his end. Eaten by his own daughter. This is based partially on the clip that was shown on TD last week.

My prediction is that Two-Dog dies in exchange for a popular black character from the comic joining Rick's crew.

Andrea has two shirts with 5 on them? One is a one-off, but two... I definitely think she's going to be the next one rick kills.

Also Michonne is a biatch

Andrea will probably get the opportunity to kill Michonne or the Gvnr when M and G have a Mexican standoff.

I want to see Merle and Rick meet face to face tonight. Maybe end the episode on Merle getting some payback on Rick and the Governor gearing up to visit the prison.

It`s like Lost. Only with more zombies.

I am in the minority here, but I just can not stand Michonne, and hope she gets killed off or just goes off and does her own thing.

For one thing, she doesn't know what information is valuable to the group. She has no reason to mention Andrea or Darryl because she doesn't know their connections to the group. She gave them the information she thought they needed and no more, because she's cautious. As for the group, they have no reason at this point to ask the name of the guy who shot her.
 
2012-12-02 08:32:47 PM  
I spoil myself because this is the type of show that will put me into a raging mood if something happens that will make me upset. I know its retarded logic, but I am less disappointed if I read it in advance and see it. That being said, this episode will be great.
 
2012-12-02 08:37:03 PM  
Today at Wizard World they gave Michael Rooker some Maker's Mark before the panel. Unfortunately it didn't liquor him up enough to spill any beans. Though he did do an impression of Norman Reedus because Norman was late getting to the show and someone asked a Darryl question so Rooker responded for him.

Merle knows how to run a Q&A.

I think you mean Merle? She heard the interactions w/ Glen and Merle so she knows they knew each other and weren't friendly.

Beyond that, we have Andrea not telling the Gov or the scientist what happens to the brains once the zombie turn. That seems important information too.

And, for that matter, did Andrea and Michonne not talk at ALL in the past six months? Couldn't Andrea have said *anything* about the people she was with, just enough for the lights to click in Michonne's head?

Or... now that I'm thinking about it, if Andrea was really bitter and felt like she got left behind, and Michonne knows that the folk in the jail were with her, maybe she's being standoffish because she doesn't trust them

I was shocked by the male rape scene in The Shield.
