Just last week on The Walking Dead Season 4, we saw The Governor (David Morrissey) alone, trying to push down his old “bad” self to become “good” Brian. Now he’s not only back to The Gov., he’s convinced a new group to attack complete strangers at the prison. Um, that was fast!
Maybe they should’ve shown his development parallel to the prison instead of giving Team Prison five episodes, then two for the Governor. Now all of a sudden we’re back at war.
Anyway, next week’s Episode 8, “Too Far Gone,” is our last glimpse of Team Prison and company in 2013. Showrunner Scott Gimple teased up the mid-season finale to The Hollywood Reporter, “I believe that it fulfills the story of the first seven episodes. It is very much an ending of sorts for a lot of these characters' stories. I can't wait for people to see it.”
An ending of sorts for a lot of characters’ stories? Eek. Characters we just met or people we’ve known for a while?
THR asked how long Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) group can stay at the prison since the fences are weak, the survivors are recovering from the fu, and The Governor clearly wants the place for himself.
“They're not exactly at full strength right now,” Scott said. “A lot of people just got through a horrible illness; they lost a lot of people -- including Carol (Melissa McBride) — and on top of that, Carol being sent away is a potentially explosive situation unto itself. A lot of things are coming to a head all at the same time. It really unfolds at a breakneck pace — a lot of big things happen. It's a big episode. It's incredibly dramatic.”
Yeah, we still haven’t seen Daryl Dixon’s (Norman Reedus) reaction to Carol being banished. Will he even have time to react or will they immediately have to go into game mode? Will Carol make a surprise appearance outside the prison to save the day? Someone has to save Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) at this point. Get to work, Carol!
Where’s your head at with all the action they’re going to have to stuff into next week’s ep? Here are more teasers about what's coming. They should really super-size it to two hours…
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
