The season 4 finale of The Walking Dead is upon us! What an awesome episode. We definitely focus on Rick and his arrival to Terminus. We also see a transformation the Rick character. Did any of your predictions come true?
- Joe and the claimers catch up with Rick
- Daryl tries to sacrifice himself to save Rick
- Rick goes animal and uses a new “weapon” to defend himself against the claimers.
- Even though Rick trains Carl on trying to use a trap for rabbits, he doesn’t anticipate the trap that Terminus is for humans.
Both if us here at The Walking Dead Girl agree that this season 4 was the best of all the seasons so far. What do you think? Has AMC finally found a good production and writing team that can take the show into a successful season 5?
“They’re screwing with the wrong people”
Jasmine’s a little under the weather in this episode with allergy season in full effect. However, we manage to keep the excitement up and are looking forward to getting answers about Terminus. We both think it’s bad news, but part of the group will reach it and it looks friendly so far:
- Will Glenn find maggie? Probably.
- Will Tara trip and fall yet again? Yes.
- Will Eugene act all creepy and awkward? Yes.
- Will Daryl stick with the claimers even though he can leave whenever he wants? Yes.
Glenn has hope to find Maggie
Listen now to hear how Jasmine feels about nuts.
- We also see the result of Lizzie’s psychotic behavior.
- Carol and Tyreese discuss the the death of Karen.
- We see burned walkers again, this time they’re attacking the group.
A lot of issues get resolved in this episode. Finally, Lizzie did not kill Karen with Carol covering for her, so there!

Carol Shoots Lizzie
We follow two parallel stories in this episode.
- One story follows Sasha Bob and Maggie as they struggle to decide their next goal and if they should even pursue the possibility of Glenn being alive.
- The other story shows us the budding relationship between Daryl and Beth, and how Daryl is growing to terms with Beth’s positive and hopeful outlook on life.
We both liked this episode and wanted to see Daryl and Beth get closer and continue the relationship building. Oh well, this is The Walking Dead after all.
Daryl teaches Beth to track
We’re back. Sorry for the delay fans. What? A whole episode with just Daryl and Beth? Can this possibly ever work? Well it turns out that it works quite well, actually. The opposing personalities of the two characters makes it interesting.
Daryl has shut down emotionally and Beth can’t stand the silence. They both go on a search for “hooch”, as Daryl calls it, and end up in a run-down house which symbolizes Daryl’s past. In the end, they burn it down. A cleansing, if you will.
Daryl, didn’t feel comfortable in the country club scenario but he felt right at home in the crap shack. Shows more about Daryl’s character.

Daryl and Beth say “screw you” to the past.
Our heroes continue to struggle with their new reality of being away from the prison.
- Rick is left a lone in the house while Michonne and Carl go on a supply run. Rick wakes up to a house full of violent scavengers and manages to escape.
- Carl and Michonne form a closer bond as they chat about Michonne’s past. We now know that Michonne’s child was named Andre Anthony.
- Glenn wakes up in the back of Abraham’s truck. Abraham is on a mission to deliver Eugene to Washington because Eugene knows “What caused all of this”.
- After a shooting mishap disables the truck. Abraham and his crew decide to follow Glenn on his quest to find Maggie.
Abraham giving the sad news to Glenn
So we wrap up the stories of all the other characters that left the prison [spoilers!].
- Beth and Daryl are together. They try to find some traces of the other survivors, but only end up on some zombies eating leftovers.
- Lizzie, Mika and Tyreese try to make the best of it. Lizzie is now truly showing her crazy side. Luckily Carol shows up just in time to save Judith from being suffocated. Oh ya, baby Judith is alive!
- Bob, Sasha and Maggie are together. Maggie is on a mission to find Glenn and Sasha and Bob follow her to keep her safe.
- Glenn is still at the prison. Why? He collects supplies and leaves the prison. On doing so, he finds Tara by herself and takes her with him.
In the end, we have a big introduction to some new characters. Abraham Ford, Eugene Porter and Rosita Espinosa.
Eugene Porter, Abraham Ford, Rosita Espinosa
We’re back from a long break to find this episode focusing on Carl, Rick and Michonne. The relationship between Carl and Rick becomes tense. Carl has completely lost respect for Rick and shows him that numerous times in this episode.
Michonne is fighting her own demons and we see a flash-back in a dream sequence of happier times. We finally find out who the walker pets were and where they came from. It’s also revealed that Michonne had a baby boy and that perhaps her husband and his friend (Mike and Terry) had something to do with his death.
In the end, Michonne decides to continue fighting and finds her way to Rick and Carl.
Carl contemplates a future without his father.
In this Christmas episode of our podcast, we play an interview we did with Melissa Hutchison, who plays the voice of Clementine on The Walking Dead game by Telltale Games. We are both big fans of the game and have completed Season 1 of the game and look forward to playing Season 2 now that it’s out. The big difference in Season 2 of the game series is Clementine is now the main playable character instead of Lee in Season 1 of the game.

Wow! What an episode. I think our entire neighbourhood heard us yelling and screaming at the TV. This was an awesome mid-season finale. The Governor goes to the prison to “negotiate” Rick’s group leaving and letting him and his group take over. Talking doesn’t work and after losing the most beloved character on the show, an all out war ensues. All doesn’t end well for the Governor however and Michonne finally gets her revenge.
We get to come back, I know, we all can change.
We will continue our podcast during the mid-season break. So keep tuning in. We will also be keeping you updated on our Facebook page.
Brian is slowly turning back into the old governor we know and hate. After being rescued by Martinez from the zombie pits, he proceeds to take over the new camp he found.
Brian tries to escape the camp only to be greeted with walkers
In this special episode of our podcast we present an interview we did with James and Eric from the Walker Stalkers podcast. They are also the brains behind the successful Walker Stalker Convention which happened this month.
In this interview:
- We cover the origins of their podcast and how it evolved into a convention
- Hear about some ideas that they are planning for the next convention
- They tell us some of their favorite moments of the convention.
- Get a heads-up on a special discount for returning attendees to the con.
We had a blast recording this episode. We would really appreciate if you subscribed to our podcast in iTunes or any of the other audio apps.
The governor is back, but now his name is Brian. This episode pulls story lines from The Walking Dead books instead of the comics. The governor is broken and has lost all desire to live. However, he stumbles across a family that has a little girl (Maegan), which he adopts as his own. The governor eventually sheds his past, even burning the photograph of his family. It seems like this is now a new governor that has left his evil ways behind him. – or has he?
Brian, aka, the governor. sporting a beard
In this episode we see Hershel stepping up and becoming the hero that the prison group needs to pull through with the infection. Several sick people turn into walkers and this becomes a major threat inside the prison. Meanwhile, the prison perimeter is being overrun by walkers and the fence eventually goes down. Rick solicits Carl’s help in order to take down the walker hoard.
- This is Hershel’s episode, but he doesn’t die. Yay!
- Glen and Sasha are very sick, but they don’t die. Yay!
- Daryl’s group take way too long to come back to the prison.
- Lizzie is weird and potentially dangerous.
- Hershel is way too sensitive of protecting the group from seeing him kill the walkers.
- Daryl still doesn’t know about Carol and Rick is in no rush to tell him.
- Rick gives in to handing Carl a gun and lets him use it. Is Rick losing the battle or is Carl well grounded enough to know when it’s ok to kill?
Rick and Carl spend some quality time together
Daryl and his group manage to get to the vet school to pick up the medicines. Tyresse’s anger almost gets him killed and Bob is still scavenging for bottles of liquor. Meanwhile, Carol has a Shane moment and confronts Rick about his inability to make decisions. However, Rick makes a bold decision and banishes Carol from the prison group.
Say peaches one more time mother f@#$% – Pulp Fiction reference
We find out who is responsible for Karen’s burnt body, Daryl leads a team out to look for some medicine, and Tyresse gets confrontational with Rick. Some would argue that this was a slow episode, but it was satisfying to see the mega-walker hoard towards the end.
- We still don’t know who is feeding rats to the walkers at the fence. Stay tuned…
- Our favorite emotional scene was Hershel’s declaration to help the infected.
Next week we will be delayed by a day in putting out our episode, due to us being at Walker Stalker con. We will be attending the podcasting panel on Saturday at 10am if you want to say hi.
We find out what killed Patrick, well, kinda, sorta. It’s some sort of infection that has also hit Karen. The prison is not safe anymore as anyone can turn into a walker at any time. The walkers are forcing down the fence and Rick sacrifices his pigs to prevent a collapse. In the end, Rick puts on his gun belt and hands Carl his old gun back.
- My favorite scene was the emotional breakdown of Michonne
- Our favorite disgusting scene was the walker face being squished against the fence.
- Two mysteries that still need to be unravelled: Who is feeding rats to the walkers. Who burned the infected bodies in the last scene.
Reminder, we’ll be at Walkerstalkercon this November 1st, in Atlanta. Stay tuned to our podcast to hear about our adventures there. Listen for free on iTunes. If you like the show, give us a rating there.

It’s finally here! We’ve been waiting all summer for the first episode of season 4 and we just finished watching and recording the podcast episode. Spoilers: It’s been 6 to 8 months since the last season. Winter has passed and everyone has settled in to their roles. Rick is now a farmer, and Daryl has taken the leader role in the prison. Daryl leads a team to a shopping center for some supplies but walkers get the “drop” on them. Rick finds another survivor in the forest but she leads him nowhere.

Daryl pretends to be a homicide cop
The final showdown between the Governor and the prison group takes place in this episode. Many fans were disappointed with this episode since it wasn’t much of a fight. Only Martinez and Shumpert were really putting in any effort. The big battle was not meant to be and in the end, the Governor leaves, never to be seen again.
Before the Governor leaves for the prison however. He sets up a situation with Milton and Andrea that will end in pain for Michonne and the prison group.
Carl unjustifiably kills someone and then confronts Rick with some truths about how he feels about Rick.
At the end of this show, my dad and I stay on the Mic and talk about some personal stuff. We put it after the end of the show closing so you guys can skip it if you want. We won’t do this often and it’s a bit of an experiment.
The Governor using his hand shield
Rick decides to deliver Michonne to the Governor and asks Merle to give the group a hand. Rick later retracts his decision, however Merle has already taken matters into his own hands. Glenn and Maggie get married! In this episode we:
- Give our episode walkthough like only we can do it.
- Discuss the relationship between Daryl and Merle
- Present our trivia
- Come up with our own spin-off idea for The Walking Dead
Glenn and Maggie kiss after getting married
Andrea finally makes a decision about where her loyalties lie. But is it too late? She realizes there isn’t a deal on the table and tries to leave Woodbury. We also see Milton take some action against the Governor.

Andrea sets up the meeting and the governor and Rick finally meet up. But it’s pretty clear from the start that there’s no negotiating going on. The governor wants ricks’ surrender, or Michonne’s head on a stick.
Rick hesitates and misses opportunity to kill the governor
We would really appreciate if you subscribed to our podcast in iTunes or one of the many other audio apps.
Morgan, played by the awesome Lennie James, makes an appearance on this episode. He’s hold up in a town where he set up traps and devices to “clear” walkers and people. Rick sees himself in Morgan, and tries to bring him back to the prison. Michonne helps Carl grab a family photo from an old bar in town and in the process, form a bond.
- Lennie James has the best dialog in this episode
- Michonne has a strange taste in art.
- Carl starts off not liking Michonne but by the end of the episode he considers her part of the group
- The abandoned hitchhiker was one of the more funnier scenes of the show.
- Rick sees himself in Morgan. Rick is not far from becoming like Morgan.
Michonne loves the cat statue she snagged
In this episode, Andrea finally decides to take some action and head over to the prison where her old friends are hanging out. After finding out everything about the situation from the Governor and Rick, does she make the next move? Meanwhile, Tyresse and his group, after leaving the prison, find Woodbury.
Rick is going a little crazy (ok, a lot crazy), as he starts seeing more images of Lori. He wanders off into the forest and Glenn takes it upon himself to be the leader. Merl and Daryl don’t seem to be enjoying their time together and the Governor drops a walker bomb on the prison.

In this episode of our show:
- We give a summary of our trip to Universal Studios, Halloween Horror Nights. We had an awesome time and got sucked into the world of The Walking Dead.
- We read some fun listener email.
- We review season 3, episode 9 of TWD. We see Daryl leaving the group to run off into the woods with his brother – good luck! Rick is losing control of his mind and hallucinates images of Lori. This causes him to scare off Tyresse and his group.
Even though we tried hard to finish our season 3 reviews before the start of season 4, we couldn’t make it. Something to do with high school homework… No fear. We will continue our season 3 reviews and finish them over the next few weeks.
Reminder that you can still buy tickets for Walker Stalker Con. We’ll be there to bring you all the news from the event into our podcast. Like our Facebook page to see photos of the event, when they’re available.
Greg Nicotero as the Woodbury walker
We have some great news. We’re both going to the Walker Stalker Con! We’ll bring you news from the convention on our show.
In this episode 8 (the mid-season finale) of Season 3, we see the introduction of some new characters to The Walking Dead. Mainly Tyreese and Sasha. They arrive at the prison and Carl takes care of them just like Rick would.
Rick and Daryl bring Michonne along to attack Woodbury and rescue Glenn and Maggie. They are successful, but in the wake of the battle, they lose Daryl and Michonne hits the governor where it hurts the most…
Glenn, making a makeshift weapon from a walker arm
Michonne manages to find the prison and Rick takes her in. He’s very cautious about Michonne but she tells them about Maggie and Glen’s abduction. The group decides to get them back. In Woodbury, Merle interrogates Glenn and the Governor interrogates Maggie. Meanwhile, Milton is doing strange experiments on a soon-to-be walker volunteer.
Michonne arrives at the prison bearing gifts.
After his rampage against the walkers, Rick answers a ringing telephone. It appears to be other survivors, which gives Rick some hope. Meanwhile, the governor sends Merle to kill Michonne, but he fails. He’s rewarded with a pair of captives in Glenn and Maggie.
On the bright side, Daryl discovers Carol still alive.
Merle and his pals admire Michonne’s handy work.
Michonne and Andrea part ways in this episode because they don’t agree about the true nature of the Governor and the town of Woodbury. Rick only says one word in this entire episode after he goes on a walker killing spree. Meanwhile, the prison has it’s youngest resident, which desperately needs formula and something to eat in order to survive.
Are you not entertained?
This is the most emotional episodes we had to watch. We have not one, but two main character deaths in this episode. Oh and some stuff happens in Woodbury with Michonne and Andrea.
Ninja Daryl is ready for action to save Rick.
This is the first Walking Dead episode where we don’t see any sign of Rick and the group. Andrea and Michonne come across a downed helicopter and a new group of survivors. The Governor greets them into Woodbury, but Michonne doesn’t trust him or the idilic environment he’s created. She might be justified in her opinion, because we see the Governor take some questionable actions.
Welcome to Woodbury
After chopping off Hershel’s lower leg, Rick strikes a deal with the new found inmates for half of their food supplies and help with clearing another part of the prison. However, one of the inmates (Thomas) is acting too dangerous for Rick’s liking. Meanwhile, Hershel’s still alive but will he turn?
Big Tiny needs to watch his back
Hey fans! We finally reached Season 3 and we’re digging into, and reviewing, the first episode. Wow, this episode is full of walker kills and much needed action. This is a big change compared to season 2. There is still some character development, and we see Rick and Lori’s relationship taking a nosedive.
The group reaches the prison which was pictured in the season 2 finale, and we get a glimpse of the relationship which has grown between Michonne and Andrea.
Maggie discovers how to kill the riot gear walkers.
We’ve reached the end of Season 2. In this season finale, we see what can happen if you let your guard down. A horde of walkers invades Hershel’s farm and nobody is prepared for the mayhem that follows. We lose some minor characters and everyone ends up on the road with nowhere to go.
Who is this mysterious hooded figure revealed at the end of the episode, and what is the building we see in the distance? Where will the group end up in the next season? Listen to our next podcast episode to find out.

Daryl pulls the trigger on poor Dale
In this Season 2 Episode 10, we see Rick and Shane going on a crazy trip to remove Randall from the farm. Unfortunately they get into some walker trouble at their destination.

In Season 2 episode 8 of The Walking Dead, we find that the barn shooting massacre has a deep impact on Hershel . He picks up drinking again and Glenn and Rick go off to find him, only to get into danger. This time however, it’s not from walkers.

Zombie on a Stick – The Walking Dead
This episode of The Walking Dead is titled ‘Secrets’, and there are lot’s of them. Lori’s hiding her pregnancy, Glen is hiding the fact that there are walkers in the barn and Shane is hiding the truth about Otis’s death. We both felt that this episode was mostly filler and a lot of drama. There are many funny moments with Glenn and Dale.

Enjoy our podcast, we had a blast recording it.
Until our next episode, here’s a photo of Dale catching Shane doing something really awful. This should totally be a new meme.

In this episode Rick and his group come across another seemingly hostile community of survivors. At the camp, all goes to hell.
