Well that one "Woodbury army" survivor got a name. She seemed good looking and white. That alone gives her a shot to stay on.

Definitely expected more deaths but I enjoyed the governor's attack on the prison.

Relieved that Andrea is finally dead, she was awful. Had a few friends saying they were crying over her death

I've never been convinced that Carl is a "badass", he's doing an okay job but I wouldn't mind him being killed off.

Would you rather she did it faster and survived?

It felt over the top agressive, which I suppose they were going for with the character, but that's not what we got out of that character all season.

Why would they have gone any other way? The Governor turned into a rather brash character and that's the way they approached the assault. He was pissed off, knew he had a big number advantage and was basically doing a show of force not caring which of his expendable people died in the process.

I miss Shane too.

You have to wonder how much Shane has influenced the metamorphasis of Carl. When Rick was presumed dead, he was pretty much Carls' de facto father and this was for several months to a year.

Shane was the one that said they had to move on after they could not find the little girl on the farm. Then after the epic scene at the barn in S2 Carl said Shane was pretty much right all along, whereas during the search he echoed his father Ricks' mantra that they would not abandon the search.

You also have to think back to the scene in S2 where Shane went all in on Carl for trying to speak to the captive, chastising Carl for even entertaining any dialouge and warning him he would try and trick Carl into freeing him.

There was also a scene days later in S2 where Carl gives Darryls' gun back and Shane tries to tell him to keep the gun even forcing it on him. After Carl rejects the gun Shane yells to him when he walks off, "Carl!! Just don't get yourself killed okay?"

You know Shane never thought Rick could keep the group safe, and thats just trickled down to Carl.

I'm a huge fan of the Walking Dead franchise, but the show is getting stale. It's become too dragged out, and there are times where I sit there bored for 40 minutes waiting for something to happen. The pace, like I said in season 2, needs to pick up. Season 3 started well, but then it slowed down again as every episode had too many Rick losing his mind moments, too much small drama moments in the prison cell, and Andrea with the Gov scenes. Now those scenes would work if there was more pacing, but it's becoming more about human drama than an action show (which I understand; don't tell me it's not all about the action) to the point where the zombies are not even the main obstacle anymore. They kill them like it's nothing. It needs a better balance. Season 1 had the perfect balance of that.

Now I'm not saying it's bad, but it could be a lot better.
