Last night's episode of The Walking Dead focused entirely on Michonne and Andrea's arrival at Woodbury, the introduction of the Governor and the official return of Merle! With Woodbury as the focus of the episode, there was no time to check in with Rick and his people to see how they're doing at the prison, but based on the promo and clip we have from next week's "Killer Within," we'll be seeing more of the prison and the tensions within soon enough.
The promo below starts with the interesting sight of an ax cutting through the chains keeping the prison gates closed, leaving Rick and his people to face off against an onslaught of walkers. And we also see Andrea and Michonne continuing to discuss whether it's such a good idea to stay in Woodbury. It seems Michonne's instincts are telling her that they may be safer on the outside.
Who broke the chain? Was it the same person spying on Carol when she did her weird zombie C-section? Or is it the two prisoners Rick exiled to another block? He's shown saying "We had an agreement" in the promo. I guess you could call the situation with the prisoners an "agreement" if you consider Rick killing (or feeding to the walkers) a couple of them and leaving the surviving two to fend for themselves in their own block an "agreement." We'll have to wait and see if that's who's responsible for the chain being cut or if someone else is messing with them.
Meanwhile, as mentioned, Michonne seems to think she and Andrea might be better off moving on from Woodbury, but the promo also showed Andrea toasting with the Governor, which suggests the two are getting along. The Governor seems like a loner-type but he might be open to some female companionship if he thinks Andrea's trustworthy. Who knows?
Speaking of companionship, see who's making good use of the prison guard tower in this clip!
Glen and Maggie are ridiculously adorable. What I love most about their relationship is how they're in the throws of a new romance and yet somehow, they don't drag TWD into mushy, soapy territory with their relationship. Their romance inspires just enough hope for mankind to remind us of why these people are trying to stay alive to begin with. Otherwise, all the show would ever be about is trying not to get eaten by dead people. Sure, that's enough to carry a drama for a while, but it's nice to have a reason to smile or laugh once in a while.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on AMC.
