“The Walking Dead” offers a new episode Sunday night, “I Ain’t Judas,” but after last week’s box truck pulling up with a walker bomb, the writer’s will have to get extremely creative to out shine the showdown at the prison. According to TV Line on Sunday, Feb. 24, 2013, the Governor forces Rick’s hand when it comes to survival of the fittest. Will Rick pull it together or has he lost touch with reality to the point that Daryl will need to step up and lead the group?
Fans of “The Walking Dead” will be keeping an eye out for Lori’s ghost, as she appears to show up just before trouble begins. Last time she appeared, she inadvertently got rid of the prison guests after two of the men planned a “take down” of Carl and Carol so they could get their weapons and take over the prison. While she didn’t appear last week to warn of the Governor’s arrival at the prison, Rick was looking for her out in the woods, which put him in a good spot to fight off the Governor.
Lori’s ghost appeared to Rick the week before, just as he was making the decision to let the group of four stay or not. He started yelling at Lori to “go away” in a threatening manner and the foursome thought it was them he was talking to. No one else but Rick can see Lori, so the four prison visitors ran away after Rick’s threatening demeanor.
Viewers have to be proud of Daryl, as he has taken the role of the leader over his brother Merle, who treats him like a he’s nothing. Last week it was Merle who followed his little brother back to the prison even after Daryl was happy to leave him by the wayside. For lack of nowhere else to go Merle followed Daryl. They arrived just in time to see the Governor’s handy work, as the box truck unleashed the walkers.
Both Daryl and Merle helped save Rick’s life, but that isn’t enough to let Merle join the group. Glenn wants Merle dead for what he did to Maggie when the two were prisoners of Woodbury. With Merle in the picture this week, a civil war is bound to break out among the prison dwellers.
Andrea finally sees the light, or at least a ray of it, when it comes to the evil Governor she’s been bedding down. This is without a doubt her worst choice of men since “The Walking Dead” started. She hooked up with Shane, which didn’t turn out well, but he could be considered a saint when compared to her one-eye Governor.
The Governor is setting Andrea up for something. He started this last week by stroking her ego when telling her how well she handled the town’s folks after the walkers got through the gate and killed a man. What he has in mind for Andrea is not known yet, but for sure he will turn on her, just like he did Merle.
His plan of having Merle and Daryl fight it out to the death was foiled as Rick and his group arrived. The Governor wants Merle dead and he got the town’s folk on board by calling him a traitor and a spy for the prison group.
With the Academy Awards on at the same time as “The Walking Dead” tonight, many will opt to watch the awards show live, since tonight’s “The Walking Dead” episode is available on “On-Demand” from Comcast, Xfinity and Netflix starting Monday.
