Out Of The Grave: This Week on The Walking Dead (Episode 16 / March 31, 2013)

Apr. 1, 2013by: J.A. Hamilton

Join us every MONDAY as we review the latest episode...

EPISODE 16: Welcome to the Tombs

THE HOOK: With Hershel's farm overrun, Rick and company are on the move again. They come across a prison which Rick feels would be perfect...once it's purged of walkers. But the dead aren't the only danger lurking in the shadows.

The following contains MAJOR SPOILERS, so I don't recommend reading this if you haven't watched this episode

THE LOWDOWN: Without a doubt this was the best opening scene of the whole series. I knew Milton would go and I was sure it would be at the Governor’s hands, but I didn’t see it coming at us like this. I thought he’d save Andrea, but we’ll come back to that. I did however love the Gov’s explanation of why he kept the heads and his catchy phrase, “Kill or you die, or die and you kill.” I just wish the entire episode could have maintained this fevered pace and tension. There were some cool highlights to be sure, but as far as finale’s go, I didn’t feel much happened and/or got resolved which was a bit of a bummer.

I liked that Daryl understood Merle made a sacrifice for them, as it was unclear if he would. Rick and Michonne have the “I’m cool that you considered handing me over to that psycho” talk, and it went pretty well considering. Just another reason why Michonne is awesome. We don’t get much out of the rest of the group, save for Carl, who’s pissed off. I like how they made it look and feel like they were abandoning the prison. The Governor does his best to rouse his peeps into kill mode, and I gotta say, they hit that prison with some heavy duty firepower destroying everything in their path. I couldn’t help but wonder what both groups could have accomplished had they just joined forces and decided to kick ass. Sadly, we’ll never know. The whole prison incursion/ambush/shootout, whatever you want to call it, was over in the blink of an eye. Talk about an anti-climactic showdown.

During this battle, Carl shoots some kid in the face despite him trying to give up his weapon. My two cents? I agreed with him one hundred percent. Why take chances at this point? The Governor, and just about everyone else, has proven they can’t be trusted. That kid wouldn’t have gotten half of those words in had it been me. Now speaking of shooting people in the face, we quickly find out the Governor is about done with failure and losing…so he guns down three quarters of Woodbury like dogs in the street. The look on Martinez’s face was priceless. Him and the other guy give each other that, “we didn’t see shit” look, and pray to god he buys it. Not sure where the three of them went, but I’m damn sure it was one hell of an uncomfortable silence filled ride.

THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 3's finale was, in my opinion, underwhelming to say the least. Last week I couldn’t help but think there was too much left unsaid to cram into one final episode, cliff hanger or no cliff hanger. Like I said, the battle at the prison was pathetic, the Governor loses his mind and then rides off into the darkness. Rick and crew save the rest of Woodbury, bring them back to the prison and Tyreese and his sister finally “get it”. Yes, Andrea dies. Yes, it’s sad, but that’s about all that really happens tonight. I loved Carl’s talk with Rick about the shooting, he was making all kinds of sense and spelled it out bluntly, but accurately. I was surprised they decided to stay at the prison as I was surprised by what happened the Governor. But I’ll be honest, I was expecting more from tonight. I love the show and can’t wait for October, but I just wish this season would’ve gone out with more of a bang (no pun intended, Andrea).

ZOMBIE KILL OF THE WEEK: Michonne did a double head decapitation that more than qualifies.

BLOOD AND GORE: Lots of walkers and people kick the bucket tonight. Andrea’s bite was pretty gross too.

WHOSE HEAD BELONGS IN THE GOV'S FISHTANK: It’s hard to say, but I’ll go with Andrea, simply because she really took her sweet ass time getting those damn pliers. I’d have dislocated both feet if that’s what it took, but I’d have gotten the hell outta that chair and smoked Milton before he turned.

COOLEST SCENE: For me it was when Carl unloaded on Rick and spelt out exactly why shooting first and asking questions later was the right thing to do. Carl’s done f*cking around.

FINAL VERDICT:

 

 

TELL US WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF THIS EPISODE BELOW!

Extra Tidbit: I enjoyed this season, there were many a grandiose scene, but I wish wed have gotten a better ending. I hope the season premiere is something of epic proportions.

Carl's the only one acting like a leader now, he's the man, just like he is in the comics. That's about the best thing to come out of the finale.

Not exactly a gripping ending as I expect but a good season ending nonetheless. It gives characters some room to breath. For next season, I expect Carl to be Rick's rival because he's starting to act like a D-Bag in this episode.

8/10 is pretty generous for a finale where nothing happened. Andrea finally died yes. But we spent the entire second half of this season building up to a showdown that never happened. And now everyone at Woodbury is gonna live at the prison? Why in the world would you go live in a prison when there is a perfectly good town to live in. Woodbury's got comforts, supplies, and much better defenses than the prison - which gates get run down every episode. Season 2's finale made up for a crappy

Still love the show but this came off as a filler episode, not a season finale. Nothing was resolved and nothing new really happened. Big whoop about the Woodbury people coming to the prison, they will all get eaten next season anyway.

Expected to hate it, but...

I actually thought it was pretty decent, all things considered. Was it the kick-ass ending we were expecting? No, but I felt that the low key, somewhat hopeful ending was a refreshing change of pace for this type of program. If I have any problems it's that the Governor's fate is up in the air and I didn't buy the "sadness" of Andrea's death. Otherwise, I liked it better than I was expecting to. To each his own, though.

Funny...

I had just told Andrea to hurry up and immediately Milton said the same thing to her. It did feel like less of a finale than a regular episode. I was very surprised that we didn't come down to the Governor getting his. It would have made for a great ending to an awesome season. I was a hundred and ten percent behind Carl- his wisdom surpasses anyone on the show, and he didn't even know that Andrea could've killed the Guv...twice. He's right on the money.

it *WAS* weak BUT....

I still love this show... I think that if the Prison vs Woodbury war would have been done any differently there would have been A TON of casualties on both sides... and honestly the goon squad from Woodbury nobody really cares about anyway... the people occupying the Prison would have been decimated had they not thought out a plan and that plan was simple... booby trap the fuck out of the inside of the Prison and go hide in the woods, leave two snipers to shoot the Governors men once they come

Underwhelmed.

Episode 4 was without question the most explosive episode of the season as far as emotion and loss. I really thought that the finale would kind of be the match of that episode and it fell very short. While still a good episode, it wasn't worthy of a season finale. The entire Prison vs. Woodbury "war" ended up being more of a 5 second bitch slap fest instead of an actual battle. Andrea's death was not shocking at all because that character had no where left to go but the way she was killed

Andrea's death was not shocking at all because that character had no where left to go but the way she was killed was undeserving. It was almost like someone got writers block for this one. Still a great show and I'm super amped for season 4. The finale left me a dissatisfied though.

LAME

"There were some cool highlights to be sure, but as far as finales go, I didnt feel much happened and/or got resolved which was a bit of a bummer.
The whole prison [link] whatever you want to call it, was over in the blink of an eye. Talk about an anti-climactic showdown." Exactly, let me give you my summary of this weak-ass finale: Andrea died.

Very disappointed. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing ever really did. Andrea's death should have felt more emotional, but she's been such an annoying character all season, that I don't think she every evolved much for me to care much for her. In fact, it had seemed like she was on the path to evolving into a likable character when she was killed off. My main issue is, if you really want to shock an audience, give them something to remember, you have to do something unexpected

My main issue is, if you really want to shock an audience, give them something to remember, you have to do something unexpected and shocking. I knew someone or a few people would die, and it's not like I want characters I like to die, but compare this seasons characters killed off to last seasons, which were almost all unexpected or effective. Not this season. The showdown should have lasted longer. This has been building up all season and all we get is this minute long shootout. Compared to last year, where we had all our characters facing mortal danger pretty much the entire episode as well as a dramatic change in the dynamic of the group, we had a very minor change. It felt almost like a to be continued situation. I do kind of wonder where things will go next season, but I really just want to see things with The Governor get settled. I had expected this to happen this season, but I guess the show is really going to draw this out.

So much for the countdown to the big war. I don't get why they left so much unresolved tension, the last thing anyone wants is all these loose ends bleeding into the next season and taking up half of it. Feels like AMC is stretching this out as far as it can go. Bad move.

Didn't like the Andrea death because...

There's almost nobody left of the original Atlanta survivors from Season 1. They killed: Merle, Andrea, Dale, Lori, T-Dog, Sophia, Shane. Down to: Rick, Glenn, Carol, Daryl & Carl. I like that they kill off main characters once in a while, but they've been doing it so much its almost overkill. Hopefully they do a good job building some of the new ones, so far Michonne is the most well done.

Welcome to The Walking Dead. This is the nature of the franchise, both in TV series and comics. The comics are worse. No one is safe. No one. But the nature of the entire franchise is that regulars are killed off while new characters arrive. Expect to see more regular characters killed off next season and new ones to arrive.

I know, I just think for TV it should slow down a bit since building a character is much tougher on a screen. They don't want to get to a place where nobody cares.

Well, compared to the farm being overrun by a horde of zombies, ummm, yeah, pretty disappointing. The people ran away complaining about a slaughter??? I didn't see a single person go down or even get shot. There was a guy or two holding his leg, but Maggie and Glen did a fine job putting 60 rounds into the ground from what I saw. I guess those 8 guys Merle killed were 8 of the top 10 'soldiers'--which makes sense if you think about it. But still a major fizzle. The only good part was the

I thought it was a really good episode, if not the best season finale. More clear payoff would have been nice, but I can't say I'm surprised AT ALL that the Governor will be making it into next season. I also get the abrupt end to the prison shootout. The Woodbury residents were not soldiers. They had been riled up and endlessly deceived by the Governor, but when Rick's group showed smarts when it to the tactical advantage, they were shitting themselves and on the run and that did kind of make

It also would have left a bit of a sour taste to see Glenn and Maggie gunning down all these rather innocent people. I can see why they made some of the choices they made. It certainly was not the most satisying finale because it was setting up a lot for next season, but it was still a really solid episode for me.

Yeah, pretty underwhelming. I honestly thought a lot more was going to go down this episode. I like the Governor as a villain, but the golden rule is this: the longer a villain lives, the lamer he becomes. I don't really want him popping up next season, because he's already failed so many times that he just looks like a failure. Then he just becomes Shredder and his two lackeys become Bebop and Rocksteady. "You foiled me again, Rick! Arggggh!"

Should have been a big confrontation, death on

Should have been a big confrontation, death on both sides, and the end of the prison. I get why the characters would stay at the prison (it makes sense), but as a viewer I'm over it.

We have a season long build up to war. War looming over everything is what made this season interesting. Then the "war" we got was such a fucking cop out. Really, the Governor and his army ran away the moment they were shot at? Seriously, did they expect to not get shot at? This has to be one of the most uneventful, disappointing, & anticlimactic season finales ever produced.

Hmmm, that was an odd episode. You're right, nothing really happened and if they were leaving it up to us giving a shit about Andrea being chomped (you made your bed Andrea) and the Woodbury people getting blown away (see previous statement), then they were sorely mistaken.

Yeah I thought this would have been a good episode/arc to redeem Andrea. I'm kind of surprised that she just dies as a total failure. End of arc.

I thought maybe she'd get messed up, come back wiser for the experience, maybe missing an eye or a hand or something. Not just "oh, killed by one zombie off-screen." It was a sad moment, and they pulled it off well, but I was honestly just surprised. Andrea entire character arc boils down to: "Made horrible decisions for three years. Backed the

You weren't kidding about Andrea taking her sweet ass time with those pliers. The second he mentioned them I would have been trying my damndest to get them in my hand, not reminiscing or comforting Milton. He's dead and guess what, you are too if you don't get the damn pliers.

I found the episode to be disappointing overall but then again at least the show is consistent in getting that general reaction out of me. Every week it feels like the show is building towards something big and that we will get a good payoff for sticking around watching it but it always pulls punches where it should come out swinging.

That episode would have been much more tolerable if it wasn't the season finale. This entire season was built up with the expectations of there actually being a 'war' at the end of it, only for The Governator's group to be outwitted by a lone flashbang grenade and two people? Ridiculous. I also didn't care for them obviously trying to milk drama and sympathy out of Andrea's plight, but at this point she's done so much stupid crap (including taking her sweet-ass time getting those pliers) for me

I also didn't care for them obviously trying to milk drama and sympathy out of Andrea's plight, but at this point she's done so much stupid crap (including taking her sweet-ass time getting those pliers) for me to care if she lived or not. It especially didn't help that she died in the most anticlimactic way possible- she gets bit off screen, and then she shoots herself off screen. REALLY?

Herschel needs to shut the hell up, too, and not try and create conflict where there isn't any. "Drop the gun" does NOT mean "hold your gun out in the shadiest way possible and expect the little kid to be dumb enough to grab it". What amazed me most, however, is that Rick and co. at the end attack Woodbury, and just so happen to approach it from the side where the ONLY two capable defenders of Woodbury just so happen to be.

It's a shame because I really enjoyed this season, but this was not a satisfying finale in the least. 8/10 is being REALLY generous. It didn't help that the constant five minute long commercial breaks were borderline infuriating, too. I'm watching The Walking Dead to watch The Walking Dead, man, not to watch AMC pimp out Mad Men every five seconds.

Herschel was wrong. The kid was NOT handing over his gun. He said he would then he just held onto it for too long. You could clearly see by the look on his face he was trying to figure out if he could take them, and Carl had simply waited long enough. Kinda bummed at the show's inconsistency of scenes that depict one character having the drop on another. Carl took out the kid no problem, but even though Allen as the drop on the Governor, he still allows the Gov to draw his pistol from the

Also, I find it kinda funny how the article goes "What a disappointing episode. 8/10". (I say this more with bemusement then I do with criticism.)

Agreed. The dude was about to swing the shotgun around. It's the only reason for not dropping his gun immediately. Carl was completely in the right. Nasty, but right. If you point a gun at someone, and they don't drop their gun, kill them.

Like you said, Allen figured that out the hard way. Would have gone the same with Carl.

I'm torn when it comes to Carl. He killed that kid in cold blood. The look on his face when he did it was chilling. I understand that this is the world he's grown up in but he needs to be careful. As it stands, he is the young version of the Governor, standing by his "kill or be killed" mentality. I'm conflicted in hating the Governor for being so demented and yet feeling the urge to give Carl a free pass because he's with the good guys. I do think Carl's actions will come back to haunt the

His actions seem to haunting Rick at the very least.

The guy wasn't putting his gun down. He had a solid ten seconds where he just sort of held the gun, vaguely pointed in Carl's direction. One wrist-twitch and he could have blown Carl's head off.

Pro tip: if you are caught dead to rights, and they tell you to put the gun down, your options are to A: shoot immediately or B: drop the gun immediately. Holding it out slowly and pointing it in the direction of the people who have the drop on you is dumb. Carl was smart to shoot him.

Carl is more like a young Shane. He spent a lot of time with the man and was obviously influenced by his way of thinking. Hell, even Rick was for a while.
