“The Walking Dead” Sunday night, Dec. 2, 2012, airs the mid-season finale for season 3. The show was so good this year that any of the episodes from this season of “The Walking Dead” could have been used for a finale. All the episodes had that heightened drama that you’d expect to find in the show’s last offering of the season. All eyes are on Andrea Sunday night, as something happens leaving her taking charge of things in Woodbury.
This same event that kicks Andrea up to Woodbury keeper throws the residents of Woodbury into “uncharted territory” claims TV Equals. At the same time as Woodbury is going through turmoil, the prison is facing a new threat. Andrea will hopefully get her head out of the clouds as her infatuation with the Governor has warped her good judgment since arriving in this “Stepford Wives” type of town.
The dark side that the Governor hides from Andrea and most of the other town’s people has been shown to the viewing audience and this guy is pure evil. From the severed human heads in the fish aquarium to his zombie daughter that he keeps locked up, it looks like this guy is not playing with a full-deck.
Andrea and Michonne have both wondered how the Governor kept Woodbury stocked with food, guns and ammunition, while Michonne now has a clue, Andrea is blind to this, but the viewer’s know he has a posse that will kill anyone who has supplies that Woodbury could use. This is his intention for Rick and the crew when he finds out that they’ve taken over the prison.
Glen and Maggie are captured by Merle, but they aren’t treated in the way Michonne and Andrea were when they first arrived in town. It was understood early on that these two women were loners and had nothing to offer, so the Governor did not need anything from them. Glen and Maggie are with a group that’s survived and it’s the supplies they have that the Governor is after.
He might also be after the prison, which he was told could never be taken over and cleared of zombies without an army of men. When he finds out that 10 people did this, he’s not happy. Probably fans of the show saw a part of the Governor they didn’t suspect existed, even though he is evil. That was the way he treated Maggie, by making her go shirtless and sexually molesting her, although the viewers didn’t see this, they were just led to believe this was about to happen.
The governor is sick, evil and so very twisted and tonight it looks like Andrea is going to have to make a decision as to where her allegiance lies. Will she see Rick’s crew and feel back at home, or will she stay with the Governor and help carry on his dirty work? Although she doesn’t know about the evil deeds this man does, she has to have some inkling. After Sunday night’s episode, it appears that she’s brought up to speed on his evil capabilities.
