Joel, I do believe that you're right... That being the case, the show didn't do a real good job of portraying that. Jody (Woodbury teen) had this look in his eye of "I wonder if I could take this little kid and this old guy?"

 If you've read the comic books, you know that Carl sees the world in very black and white terms, or at least he has so far.  This show did a good job of portraying that.  With that said, I thought the show was very, very anti-climatic, basically pulling the rug out from under the audience.  I didn't like Andrea's character that much at times, and yes while our friend is dying and turning into a zombie, lets not keep working to get the pliers, but instead sit and have a final talk...idiots die on the Walking Dead.

 "and yes while our friend is dying and turning into a zombie, lets not keep working to get the pliers, but instead sit and have a final talk...idiots die on the Walking Dead."

Stupidest part of the whole episode. Face palm retarded.

@joelr - I get what you’re saying, but it all depends on how Carl looks at it. There are plenty of movies were a person will pretend to hand over their weapon but then grab the other person as a hostage and say "Now drop your weapons mofos!". I could easily see that happening in Carl’s situation. Also, technically Carl was telling the truth about the kid drawing first because he did come to the prison with the Gov. and attacked them.
 

Not saying I'm on Carl's side, cause the kid is definitely messed up, but I just think that it all depends on how you look at it. I agree that Rick should lay the smack down on his son and let it be known that he's the father AND the Sheriff.

Been too busy to read the review until now.  Will catch up on the comments when I can.  I will say this, though.  I was never really annoyed with Andrea until this episode.  She spent way too much time talking & watching Milton die when she should have been concentrating on getting out of that chair.  She wasted critical minutes that wound up being what cost her in the end.  I was still sad (and surprised) to see her go, though.

As for Carl gunning down the kid.  I don't blame him one little bit.  Why? Because when Hershel told that kid to put the gun down, he never did.  I personally thought he was about to open fire when Carl laid him out.  If that dude who had the Governor in his sites in this same episode had that same philosophy, he would still be alive, and the world would be with one less Governor.

Looks like several of you agree with what I said above (and some don't).  Carl may have authority issues, but at least he isn't walking around seeing/talking to people that aren't there.

I do agree Carl should be punished by his father.  Carl won't like it, but I don't buy for a second he would harm his dad or anyone in the group just to get back at them.  He may be cold, but he is also logical and calculating which very few of the characters on this show can claim.  :)

 I think the whole idea of Andrea constantly looking at Milton was to build tension.  Which it did quite well.  Everyone changes at a different rate when they die.  Milton, as her sister, were quick to change.  I didn't hate the character.  After the final act, she actually became one of the most well rounded of the bunch.  

No way they could go back to Woodbury.  The Gov would have them licked in no time.  

I liked how they surprised me.  Thought they were all gone, no tension at all as they Gov and his gang of idiots went deeper into the prison.  Then one of the smoke bombs goes off.  I was impressed.  

I don't know, mowing down all those people was disturbing to me.  Killing walkers makes you grow a bit numb, but killing live people is hard to stomache.  The Gov isn't just a villian, he is Hitler.

I think there was a little bit of a let down because they didn't have the all out war as they did in the comics.  However, this does open up some potential story lines.  All I saw coming out of that bus were "red shirts".  We will see if they develop any of the characters, or if they just sit in the background until their time comes.  

Sad to see Andrea go (um, you guys, that REALLY narrows down the hotties in the show) as I thought she had some good potential now that she had be completely disillusioned.  But, someone had to go to make a finale impact.  

Does anyone else somehow wish they had kept poor Merle around?  At least let him wander off as one of the only zombies with a swing blade.

 On the bright side, I stopped reading the comic after the prison.  It just seemed like a good ending for that particulair story for me.  Or, somehow I got distracted with something else.  Either way, no more "well, in the comic book" on my end.

Much like The Road...I keep expecting us to see human canibalism.  I assume that will be a threat at some point.
