We see a zombie gut soaked Michonne against the fence line with zombies on both sides of her not attacking her at first because she was smelling like them. Some how one of the zombies realizes she is not one of them and decides to attack her. That leads to one of my favorite things about Michonne which is her slicing zombies up with her katana. As that was going on, she was being watched by Rick and Carl. Carl shows some initiative and starts popping off zombies with his pistol as Rick runs to get the keys to unlock the gate to get the formula from Michonne. What was impressive was that Carl followed Rick to help with the zombies and retrieving the formula with reckless abandon. He has become another leader within the group and not just some punk kid.
We finally see interaction with Michonne and the rest of the group while she was being treated for the gunshot wound she received from Merle. We start to see two alphas within the group. Michonne is not one that is going to let Rick boss her around and Rick surely will not give up his reigns as well. It will be interesting to see how this is going to go on in the second half of the season. One more thing about Michonee, and it was pointed out by Yvette Nicole Brown on the Talking Dead, is that Michonne really seems to closely inspect everyone. You can see as she closely analyzes everything and everyone to get an idea of how they are and if they can be trusted. We also see that Rick is not the only person to arbitrarily kill someone when we see what she did with the hermit in the shack of a house the group was in when they took off to search for Glenn and Maggie.
Speaking of Glenn and Maggie, we see how their toughness is when they are being questioned by The Governor in Woodbury. Thanks to Merle, they are being held captive and The Governor also knows about the other group and that the same group is what Andrea used to be part of. We see Glenn's toughness and true manhood evolve here as Merle beat on him. No matter how much punishment he took, he was not going to give up the group. Not even when a gun was pointed to him. As a matter of fact, Glenn even posted up when the gun was pointed in his direction. He was ready to die for the group if it were to come to it. We also see how sadistic the Governor is when he pulled a "power" move on Maggie, but Maggie held her own, for a while. She finally cracks and gives the wanted information.
We also see one of The Governor's men trying to test on a subject. Does a "walker" have the ability to remember its past. Also he had Andrea helping him as well. We do see when the old man turns, he is just another zombie and Andrea kills it right away and at the same time saving the Governor's man. What is really starting to get to me though is the naiveté of Andrea. I love the fact that Robert Kirkman changes things up from the comic, but I do not like where he has taken the Andrea character on the show. I am at the point to where I am complaining about her as well. He redeemed the Carl character this season, now I am waiting for the redemption of the Andrea character. Only time will tell.
All I know is that I am hyped up for the mid-season finale. I expect a lot of stuff to go down, and I am sure another big time character will go down and join the deceased. Like I said before, this is the best episode after episode 4, and I am hoping the next episode will be even better.
