In the mid-season finale The Governor rallies up another mindless group of people in an attempt to overtake the prison that Rick, Hershel, Michonne and their friends/family have all come to call home. The Governor has suspiciously developed an odd bond with two women and a little girl who is reminiscent of his daughter. He gains their trust and become a part of their family, or so they think.
The Governor sets out to take over the prison and is heavily armed with idiots with guns and tanks who back him up. He demands Rick and his crew leaves the prison and allows them to live there or they will take it by force. Of course, Rick does not budge even when Hershel and Michonne are on their knees at gunpoint at risk of losing their lives. The impatient governor uses a sword and impales Hershel and that’s when all out war ensues.
In the end, “The Walking Dead” fans get what they have wanted for the entire season: watching The Governor and Rick go fist to fist and toe to toe. A fight breaks out between the two amongst the pandemonium and Rick was getting beat to a pulp before Michonne serves up a sweet plate of revenge and stabs The Governor through the chest with a sword. She aids Rick who is concerned with his son’s whereabouts and leaved the good ol’ governor to the walkers.
Meanwhile, deaths are plentiful and violence is invited as the two gangs fire, kill and retreat. The prison is damaged and our favorite prison dwellers all get on a bus to find the next refuge. Carl and Rick are reunited and discover that the baby that Lori left behind has been taken and more than likely eaten by zombies.
“The Walking Dead” went out with a bang and leaves many open questions about what is to come next year. Take a look at an interview with Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) and check out the video in this article for spoilers.
