    Something tells me we'll be getting a dose of torture porn the next time we see Andrea. Hostel fans will be happy. :o

    That was exactly the point. And it was wonderful.

    I loved it.

    I ate all that classic horror movie stuff right up.

    I was so uneasy during that whole warehouse scene that never seemed like it was gonna end.

    I had Tivo'd it because I wasn't home last night, and when I forwarded through the last commercial break and saw there were 6 minutes left when Andrea arrived at the prison, I was thinking, "She's is sooo never getting to that prison..."

    Then I still screamed out loud when the Governor grabbed her. :wow:

    Of course it was obvious that the Governor had Andrea when it returned to Woodbury, but establishing that the others didn't know he had her was what made it suspenseful.

    I agree. This was the first episode that felt like survival horror to me since I don't know when. The warehouse scene was great precisely because they took the horror cliches but remixed it with their own unique elements like the Governor using sounds to stir walkers. I liked how it looked helpless for Andrea, but she turned it around on the Governor. (Great moment for a character that needs it!) Then the governor snatching her was great. It got a response out of everyone of the seven people I watch with.

    The one thing I didn't like was the walkers jumping her on the side of the road. They tipped what was coming by lingering on her resting on the tree and slowly panning the camera to the walker popping up. That was the one thing that truly felt cliche and bad.

    Other than that, the entire episode had a very dark and ominous feel to it. The wind blowing in every scene, the torture chamber, Andrea's doomed escape, the pit, the truck chasing Andrea, the warehouse scene, the mass of charred walkers still undead, and ultimately Andrea getting kidnapped. It was a great, uncomfortable episode.

    Instead of the stupid clichés we got, Andrea manages to get back to the prison, adding even more tension within Rick's group. While the Governor returns to Woodbury and kills Milton to end the episode, it would've been better storytelling IMO.

    Decent episode...but I think i'm spoiled by the game. The character depth doesn't even come close to the game (perhaps the comic too, but I never read it)

    I'm tired of the stupid Andrea storyline. The governor thing is dragging out waaaay to long. Most of the characters seem like backdrop...not really growing. Everyone seems stuck in place. The entire show is in a holding pattern since the start of this season.

    The characters are at least as deep as the ones from the game. Rick is even more developed than lee was. And there were only a handful of major characters in the game, and a ton in the show. Can't even compare them. They both are great at handling characters. But one is a game and one a TV show

    I was thinking about it earlier and Im shocked we don't have a thread where we can cast Hypsters as characters from the show.

    It's true that they're not totally comparable, but the game is structured so much like a TV show that it's not wholly inappropriate. And for me, the game blows the show out of the water in terms of writing.

    So was it anybody's theory that it was

    Milton that started the fire? Just the worried he looked when the Gov said they know who started the fire got me thinking that he did it. Also the fact that Andrea said to him he can't be on both sides before she left

    It's pretty much a known fact.

    I liked it a lot but didn't love it. The Gov and that whistling of that tune looking for Andrea in that building, creepy and intense. I wonder if Milton will be the one to help Andrea, I thought he might have been the one to burn the walkers in the pit. Maybe Tyreese went back and burned the pit and the trailer, he wasn't buying the Governor's story. That whole torture chamber, the Gov is so evil and must be destroyed.

    Like a few have mentioned above. It was Milton. Eventhough it doesn't make sense how he was able to sneak out of Woodbury unnoticed. Especially when the entrance and exit is heavily guarded. The Gov. didn't mention the pit walkers being burned. Milton brought it up. The Gov. and his goons (well so he thought) were the only ones that knew about that. How else Milton knew unless he set the pit walkers on fire.

    It wouldn't be the first time he snuck out. Didn't he help Andrea sneak out to visit the prison? I mean, even though The Governor knew about it, no one else was made aware as far as we could tell on screen.

    Good point, but you'd think the Gov's men would be more cautious at night in case Rick and co. pull a surprise attack or something. Since it was night the last time they went to Woodbury and stuff hit the fan.
