AMC has released the names of the rest of the episodes for season three of "The Walking Dead." And as usual, these episode titles reveal little and cause much anxiety.
Let's break them down, shall we? Here are our best guesses as to what is going to happen in the rest of the episodes of "The Walking Dead" season three.
Episode 9, "The Suicide King": We already know based on previews that this one is very Governor-centric. Perhaps the Governor is the Suicide King of the title? In playing cards, the king of hearts is often called the "suicide king" because he appears to be sticking his sword into his head. Maybe the title refers to the Governor bringing about his own downfall, or maybe it has something to do with our favorite sword-wielder, Michonne.
Episode 10, "Home": This could be referring to the prison or Woodbury, and the characters' relationships to those places. But then again, what if it has to do with home before the world was taken over by zombies? What if Rick and company return to the Greene farm in this episode?
Episode 11, "I Ain’t a Judas": The brothers Dixon are in the precarious position of both being able to sell out their friends to stay together and stay alive. One or both of them will have to decide whether or not to betray Rick and the Governor.
Episode 12, "Clear": On a show where medical emergencies are commonplace (see Hershel's foot amputation by axe, Lori's cesarian by hunting knife), we're betting this has to do with medical terminology. As in, how doctors say "Clear!" right before using the paddles to resuscitate a patient. But then again, this is a world without electricity, so we're probably way off in left field.
Episode 13, "Pale Horse": Ah, apocalyptic imagery! The pale horse of the Biblical Book of Revelations is a harbinger of the end of the world. Which would just add insult to injury, because I'm pretty sure the survivors of TWD are well aware that the world has ended, and don't need any pale horse to make the fact more obvious.
Episode 14, "Killer Within, part 2": EVERYONE IS GOING TO DIE. Remember the fourth episode of season three, "Killer Within"? Remember how it was about someone inside the prison trying (and succeeding) in killing everyone? Yeah, our guess is that one of Tyreese's group is not going to be as friendly as advertised.
Episode 15, "This Sorrowful Life": I mean, yeah. No one on TWD has what you'd call a "joyful life." So this title could refer to anything.
Episode 16, "Welcome to the Tombs": EVERYONE DIES AGAIN. Tombs are pretty symbolically heavy. Perhaps this episode has to do with the survivors' safe haven become their literal tomb: a death trap from which they can't escape. Our guess is this episode spells the end of the safety of the prison.
