Last week's episode was titled "Prey" and it turned out that the name referred to Andrea, who was the center-piece of the episode. Andrea had a "last straw" moment when Milton showed her the Guv prepping a torture room for Michonne and informed her of the Guv's intent to feign interest in peace only long enough to allow for the slaughter of the prison gang. She then spent much of the episode on the run, being hunted by the Governor as she tried to get to the prison to warn the gang of the Governor's plans. The chase was generally good, and the mostly silent scenes in the dilapitated, zombie-laden warehouse were particularly tense.
Ultimately, Andrea outwitted the Guv in the warehouse and left him to fend off a small army of walkers. However, the "If they didn't die on screen, they aren't really dead" adage held true as the Governor appeared literally out of nowhere at the last possible moment and prevented Andrea from reaching the prison. He hauled her back to Woodbury in secret, and it looks like she will soon be the recipient of a personal tour of the torture room.
While all of this was taking place, Tyreese got some more screen time, and though he pledged allegiance to the Governor, we saw that he is starting to be a bit conflicted about what side is the "good guys" side in the coming war. Milton apparently has overcome some of his own interior conflicts and decided that he's going to take a more active role moving forward, and torched the walkers that were meant for the "walker bombs" to be used in the siege. What's more, he basically bragged about it right to the governor's face. At this rate, I don't think I'd be surprised if he doesn't make it to next week's finale.
Tonight's episode is the penultimate episode of the season and is entitled "This Sorrowful Life". Previews indicate Rick will inform the group of the Governor's offer to accept Michonne as a price of peace. The clip they showed on last week's The Talking Dead between Rick and Merle was amazing. I think this could be an episode where Merle really turns a corner and actually grows on people. Not that it makes a difference, of course, since EVERYBODY THAT HAS EVER LIVED will die in the war next week. (Note: I know there are spoilers out there, but I don't know them, and nobody here wants to discuss them. Thanks.)
