“The Walking Dead” season 3 aired the episode “Prey” Sunday night, March 17, 2013 and it did pick up the pace a bit from last week's slow-moving show. Andrea jumped ship and left the Governor to join the prison group, but was hunted down like prey by the evil one-eyed leader of Woodbury. The Washington Post on Sunday suggests that Andrea is quite possibly in the "worst predicament" she's been in since the beginning of the show "The Walking Dead."
It looked like the Governor met his demise when Andrea unleashed a crowd of walkers on him while he was in an abandoned factory, where she was hiding at one point as he hunted her down. While many were hoping the guy got what was coming to him, he made it through the swarm of walkers.
When Andrea was a stone's throw away from the prison, with her hand up to wave to Rick who was keeping watch, the Governor comes from behind and puts her down on the ground. In the next shot the viewers see of Andrea, she's tied up and gaged in an abandoned building apparently somewhere in Woodbury. The room looks like some type of torture chamber.
Next week Andrea's fate is something the fans of “The Walking Dead” will be watching for. Lori also appears to Rick again. Lori's ghost seemed to be a warning for the group in the past when they were headed for trouble. Is that what she is doing again?
Rick pulled it together and he's not acting crazy anymore, so it doesn't seem having Lori as a figment of Rick's imagination works this time around. She really could be a guardian angel for the group.
The Governor didn't kill Andrea, so what are his plans for her? Will he kill her and include her in the walkers that he's planning to unleash when Rick and his crew show up for the next meeting? That would be one heck of an ending for Andrea.
Fans were promised a “jaw-dropping” finale that ends with something that they never saw coming. Andrea as a walker would definitely offer a “jaw-dropping” end to the season. There's only a couple of episdes left to season 3, so it looks as if there's going to be quite the cliff-hanger and it maybe it has to do with Lori's fate?
It looks like in this new-world relationships aren't meant to last, but will Glen and Maggie be the exception to that unwritten rule?
