I didn't find this episode boring. My complaint is the same as bladefd's, but I didn't think it was boring. In that little wearhouse, it gave me the vibe of Terminator when Sarah Connor is hiding and slowly being tracked. The music was a good touch too. So stupid? Yeah, the psychic governor. But I didn't find it boring.

This episode was a disgrace, and the writers should be ashamed of themselves. Only thing I liked from entire episode is that Andrea will be dead soon. Good riddance. Most annoying and dumbest character in the show - maybe 2nd only to the dum great goddess Lori.

Anyone else feel like they wasted their 1hr of their life? I sure do. Just HORRENDOUS.

You've pretty much got it all wrong.

No, I didn't mind that episode. Is it that much of a stretch? He knew where she was headed and what route she likely took. She wasn't far away when he went looking for her, so spotting her out in a wide open field isn't that much of a stretch. I missed the beginning of when he found her the 2nd time at that place, so I don't know how that all went down. Finding her at the end wasn't really much of a stretch either. They were both in the same area and he could have just followed her or simply headed straight towards the prison. She was rather tired at the point and was likely going pretty slow. The thing is he knew where she was headed, so do you think he doesn't know the area at all or something? You're talking about a person in a truck vs. a person walking. And for the sake of the plot, I don't really effing care. It happens all the time in movies. Ever watch T2? The T-1000 just happened to find John out on the highway out of the blue.

Milton is also ****ed...

Certainly not my favorite episode, but they did do some things well.

It's a really well shot show. The warehouse scene looked really good, and had some genuinely tense moments. The scene with her hiding behind the box and him approaching dragging the shovel was really well done. Her escape at the end was well crafted.

The problem was that this was essentially another bottle episode, because we saw a very limited number of characters, but it was a bottle episode about some terrible characters. The Governor has been awfull, and it's really time to finish this story line. I don't know if it was the hype surrounding the character, or the amount of sacrificing they had to do from the source material, or that the guy playing him can't swing it, or what, but the character has fallen flat. When they said "only two more episodes left!!" when it ended, I couldn't believe there were still two left. It just doesn't feel like they had the material to do this full season.
So the whole episode centered around the awfull Governor, the rediculous Andrea, and then the B-plot was Martinez, who seemed to just get a name last week, bickering with the black guy, who's also becoming a one note "now ... we aint looking foh no trubble ear!" guy.

They really need to finish this season and move on. Frankly I wouldn't mind seeing the prison destroyed during some kind of a battle, and the group having to move on. Again, the show works best when they're on the move and struggling to survive. They can either be driven in that direction by a threat (the stick), or baited that way by hope (the carrot), like the CDC. But either way they have to move.

Making this "season" 16 episodes was a big mistake. Shit's really dragging. Hell the cold open was a flashback that showed you...nothing. Michonne doesn't like to talk. That's news.

Last two episodes have been meh but I expect shit's going down soon. Hope Rick doesn't hand over Mashone. She is a huge asset and has earned her place.

Andrea is gonna get it but she choose her fate a while back.

I hope the Gov dies a slow agonizing death. Pour gas and sand in his eye, put his nuts in a vise til they pop, pull his teeth out, break his legs and then throw him in the middle of a pack of walkers.

Of course he knows it's a dick move. Dude gets off on spoiling this series for people.

Look at Milton finally growing some balls and setting fire to the zombie pit... his "Oh that sucks about the pit doesn't it" schtick pretty much confirms he did it.

Can't wait for the next 2 eps.

Because it's totally not about preferences, but since you want to go off topic. GoT > BB.

Deciding between GoT and BB is preference, TWD is not near that level...
