'The Walking Dead' Recap: OMG, What's Andrea Doing With That Knife?!

TV Addict 9

walking deadHey, Walking Dead-heads (don't you think that's like, the perfect nickname, by the way? Spread the word! Let's make this happen!): Before we get this going, just wanted to let you know I'm filling in for your regular recapper, the fabulous Linda Sharps, but don't worry, she'll be back next week!  Anyway, on with the show.

So, the big questions going into tonight's episode, "I Ain't a Judas," were as follows: What's Rick going to hallucinate about this week? Will Andrea find some pompous, irritating way to screw over her old friends in favor of her psychopath love interest and all the comforts of Woodbury? (Hot water! Pillows!) If you don't want to find out the answers to these q's and more, stop reading now!

No hallucinations from Rick (phew!), though he's still all wild-eyed and jumpy -- which prompted two separate talks: First from Hershel, then from Carl. Hershel went the stern father figure route, telling Rick he better "get his head clear" as the group's leader while a suddenly sage Carl tells his father he should "stop being the leader."

"Let Hershel and Daryl handle things. You deserve a rest," he says. And for a second Rick looks like he might be actually getting the point. But no time for epiphanies or introspection, Andrea's back!

But before she gets there, we get to see one of the all-time most gruesomely gory Walking Dead scenes ever ever ever: Andrea and Milton the Mild turn a walker into a "pet" (like those creepy thangs Michonne used to walk around with). EWWWWWW it was gross.

And also on the way: Andrea and Milton find more survivors!! And they look sane! Not like batshit crazy zombie head hoarders at all!! (Turns out they have a grudge against Rick & Co. Whoops.)

Anyway, I'll fast-forward to the part everybody really wants to talk about, which is what does Andrea decide to DO after Carol tells her she should seduce the Governor and then kill him in his sleep (and then Rick makes her leave the prison but at least gives her a car and a gun)?

Well, predictably ... NOTHING. Andrea does NOTHING. That is to say, she seduces the Governor and stands over him with a knife while he sleeps for a minute, but then wimps out and looks out the window, lost in thought.

Surprise, surprise.

Did you expect Andrea to kill the Governor?

Like I was telling my fiance while we were watching it the governor is to big (and bad) of a character to kill him off in his sleep. I also dont believe its his time yet although it needs to happen soon. The episode was a bit slow but im sure it was a build up episode which is good.

so, i liked it got all STORY, and aside from that nasty hacking job, no walkers/biters.  i think Andrea really does love the gov, as much as you can love in Post Zompocalypse

i was more creeped out by the end singing... echoing through the creepy , probably stinky, jail... 'if you share my bed, you share my name'  whaaaaa?????  weird

I am ready for Andrea to go! She is sickening, and the way they have her walking around like some bad-ass is cheesy and tired!I do not even want to see her as a zombie!Just get her off the show and on to the next storyline!!

Nope, didn't think Andrea woild do anything. It was nice to see Michonne with a different expression, if only fleetingly, of her trademark glower, however.

Andrea isn't gonna do jack! I'm sick of her acting as if she's d*ck drunk off of the Gov. And that god awful singing gets on my last nerves! I remember when she was suicidal. Now she makes makes me want to kill myself whenever she sings.

going crazy

Can we start an "I hate Andrea club" please?  Ugh, the most annoying character is in the middle of all the plots.  Why?! Why?!  Please let it be over soon.  If I have to look at the stupid expression one more time!!

ok, Im calm now :)

The governor is gonna wake up and kill Andrea and then gather his army and invade the prison and then Merle is going to get killed somehow either sacrificing himself for Carl, Rick or Darryl.

.......I think anyway

But yeah, I agree, I'm sick to death of Andrea. Fricken do-gooder.
