“The Walking Dead” is winding down with season 3, as just a few episodes are left before the “jaw-dropping” finale. Sunday night, March 17, 2013 brings the episode, “Prey,” and from the Comcast Xfinity menu, it looks like the Governor is busy hunting down a deserter. He also finds that he has a traitor among his fellow citizens of Woodbury. This week's episode promises to pick up the pace, according to what is conveyed in the previews.
Last week both Rick and the Governor made it quite clear they had war on their minds after lying to their perspective groups about what they decided after their sit-down. It looks like Milton, the governor's right-hand man, will be exiting “The Walking Dead,” and while nothing official has been said about his departure, the Huffington Post reports Sunday that Dallas Roberts, who plays Milton, is starring in another show next season.
It seems as if the role of a detective for the major cases in NYC has lured the man who plays the role of Milton, Woodbury's scientist, off to broader horizons. Milton and Hershel were forming a bond and with Milton questioning the Governor's intentions, it looked like Milton might jump ship and join the prison dwellers this week.
Last week's episode was seen as boring by some of “The Walking Dead” fans, but the show is building up to the big season 3 finale and every little trivial conversation and action will somehow pull together and make sense when the season ends, so say the exec's in charge of this show over at AMC.
Milton is starting to be a likeable guy with the fans as they learned he was just as much duped by the Governor as the rest of the unsuspecting folks of Woodbury. Remember the group that wanted to join Rick and the others a few episodes back after they made their way into the prison?
The group of three men and one woman looked like they had a home until Rick saw Lori's spirit standing on the platform in the prison. They high-tailed it when Rick went loose at Lori's ghost because they thought his words of “get out of here,” were meant for them. That group is back in the picture, but they are with the Governor and ready to fight “crazy” Rick, or so they think.
This week this new foursome get a whiff of what the Governor is all about and they may have a change of heart. No one is safe from getting the ax on “The Walking Dead,” they proved this when they had Lori meet her demise during child-birth, so even the most popular characters are not safe from being pulled from the cast if the writers think it fits the story line.
Too many other major players have gone already so it's a safe bet to say Rick is safe, but the same can't be said about any of the others. Hints that a few of the fan's favorites might not make it to season 4 have bubbled up online for a few weeks now.
