the actress that plays andrea often looks like she's taking a poo whenever she tries to act emotional

but this is important to andrea's character, and toughening her up

Midseason finale of season 4 = end of prison arc. I believe I called that a few weeks before the midseason finale of this season. Could go to the end of next season, but I HIGHLY doubt that (that'd be waaaaaay too much, unless they really dove into character development in a MAJOR way).

think this season ends with Tyreese and his sister joining the prison group and Andrea being tortured

I actually hope he doesn't die but I know how Kirkman is. He seems to kill off every single character that I like and leaves worthless people like Carol in the show and the Preacher in the comics. I guarantee that Kirkman is fuging salavating at the chance to kill of Daryl since he's by far the most popular character that he's ever created. Chances are that it's going to be a violent and random death too if Kirkman has anything to say about it.

But I don't think AMC will let him kill Daryl....yet. Further down the line I could see it happening if the ratings start slipping or something.

I thought that was a weak episode. The plot didn't move much and there was hardly any character development. The hiding scene was suspenseful but overall meaningless. Reminded me a lot of season 2.

I thought the opposite. Character's developed. Milton, Andrea, Tyreese and his group. Governor showed more of what we already knew, but now Milton and Andrea see it. It's a set up episode for the next two.

To me, the hiding scene DID have a purpose. It was Andrea's moment. This has launched a pivotal point in her character. Her being able to sacrifice a warm bed and seemingly guaranteed safety due to the moral dilemma presented with the Governor's actions and the Woodbury/Prison conflict in general. And, just to add one more, it's her "cold blooded" moment. A couple episodes ago, she couldn't bring herself to murder the Governor in cold blood. Season 2, she sided with Dale on the Randall situation. This last episode, she released what seemed to be about 15 or so walkers on the Governor and no fugs were given. Comic Andrea is slowly coming forth....

It's also the episode where the Governor has completely become obsessed with killing outside survivors (namely Michonne, but also the rest of the group) and really asserting himself on people (ie, Milton), whereas before, he just sweet talked his away around people.

Plenty happened, with a bit more zombie killing just to keep the action going on so that these last two episodes, where action is guaranteed to get going, don't seem to have "forced" action in them.

I feel like that all could have been expressed in a forth of an episode. And I strongly disagree about Andrea. She didn't make a moral decision, she was backed into a corner and did what she had to do. It was a turning point episode for her(and the governor, I agree) but since the 2nd season I have this skeptical part of my mind that is always critical of the pacing. Also, the governor popping back up right when Andrea was approaching the prison was a bit cliched to me.

It wasn't a bad episode by any means, just weak given how well the rest of the season has gone.

The last episode was great for Andreas character - shes way better doing and not thinking which is odd since her character was a lawyer. Laurie Holden is not a very good actress, at least for this show, but she has a tough chick look.

The big character development in terms of the show last ep was the governor - I really do believe he's completely a bad guy now and he's completely sold himself to the idea that he deserves to have and hold power. "Show me, don't tell me" was never more shown on this show than this last ep. Nerdy assistant guy started making some sense, and Tyreese finally got some real attention. I've liked the past few shows that focus more on a smaller group of people than the back and forth with everyone getting moments type of show, but next week it will probably revert to that as things get heated up.

If you wanna explain what the pic has to do with things, that'd be good. Without any context though, a pic from a show I don't watch and a "this guy says hi" caption don't really say much to me.

He was hands down the main character, voice of reason, center of almost everything in the first season, yet he dies all of the sudden after a suspenseful buildup, when you expect someone to jump in and save him or something. I think what he was getting at is that nobody is safe in TV shows if the writing is done well and not forced down the safe route.

BTW, you should definitely give GoT a shot. I haven't heard of anyone who has tried it and not become hooked. Most people like it more than TWD too.

Very similar kind of stuff to TWD in terms of complicated relationships, badasses, crazy people, etc, except there is a lot of, for lack of a better word, "strategy" to the relationships and the things going on. And the acting is, IMO, much superior to TWD.
