“The Walking Dead” season 3 finally got Rick and the Governor in the same room to talk, but this only happened because Andrea thought they could work it out. She was wrong, as both men have their own agendas working and want nothing else but to go to war, as seen on “Arrow on the Door Post” episode on Sunday, March 10, 2013.
As Fox News mentions on Monday, last night's episode was considered "boring" to some of the viewers. That's because “The Walking Dead” has a lot to live up to after the episode “Home,” which presented the “best and most dramatic shoot-outs to-date.” What the show's fans are seeing in the last few episodes will get pulled together and make sense in the season finale.
Sunday night's “The Walking Dead” pointed out the similarities between the Governor and Rick. Both of these leaders went back to their people and lied about the outcome of their talk together. While Rick is right with what he said, the Governor does want them all dead, but that is not what the Governor said to him. Either he was manipulating the folks at the prison or telling them what he truly believes. It was probably a little bit of both.
Andrea, who looks as if she is headed toward joining the prison group, still seems to hold some type of infatuation for the mad man she's been bedding down and who is now ready to slaughter her friends. Again, when Robert Kirkman, the executive director of “The Walking Dead,” sat down for a recent interview, he did say that Andrea is basically playing her cards close to her chest. You won't know what she plans on doing until the “jaw-dropping” season finale.
How quickly things change on “The Walking Dead,” who thought there would come a time when Merle is the one making the most sense. He did seem to be calling the right shots when telling Rick he should have taken the Governor down while he was alone in the barn with him. It was also a nice human touch to show Daryl, who is Rick's number one henchman, hang out with the Governor's number one henchman and have a cigarette together.
This was a reminder that these Woodbury folks aren't all bad, they are just following a mad man who has them all duped. The war is on and in the next couple of episodes it will be brains against brains when Rick and the Governor plan their strategies for how to take the other down. While guns and ammunition will play a big role in this war, it is the plans and tatics devised that will ultimately let the better man win.
