Why It's Time To Stop Watching "The Walking Dead"
"Too Far Gone" was just that terrible. Warning: Spoilers ahead!
Just in case you thought it all was a bad dream... It wasn't. The mid-season finale we saw last night was real. Real bad.
OK, so, COMPLETELY NEW PLOT TWIST*: The Governor wants to take the prison. (!!!)
Then there was a super important plot point about making a mud pie with this kid.
Tyreese, still trying to figure out who killed his woman, brought Daryl and Rick to see this dead bunny corpse.
Then The Governor really rolls up on the prison, and reveals that he has Herschel and Michonne as hostages.
And this is Rick's totally logical response to their impending demise:
And he repeats it, for good measure:
The Governor gives zero fucks, basically, and is like "LOL, we outnumber you, EVEN THOUGH I'VE ONLY HAD TWO MONTHS TO MAKE MY ARMY."
And if this scenario at all looks familiar...
That's because, again, it already happened in Season 3.
Remember the first time that The Governor wanted to take over the prison, and how he brought his camp with him? Yes, it's happening again.
And how come Rick NEVER gets a new shirt, but Patchy The Gov has all these cool leather options?
Rick, all out of "I'm not in charge no mo!" cards, eye-fucks the camera for a while, basically.
Meanwhile, Daryl has this laundry cart full of guns that he hands out to everyone.
This kid's mud pie fun came back to bite her in the back, literally.
RIP kid we didn't really care about at all.
This dude, whose brother was killed by The Governor, is fiercely loyal to him, for no reason.
Rick gave one last attempt to keep the peace, because he doesn't like to shoot people anymore, and Gov. Patchy was not having it.
So, because Rick was a "liar," Gov. Patchy took the next logical step and chopped off Hershel's head.
Oh, and did I mention he was killed in front of his family while they stood screaming?
Someone getting beheaded finally snapped Rick out of his peace-loving haze, and he fired some shots.
Then Rick and The Governor decide to fist fight, even though there's weapons all around them, because YOLO.
But Gov. Patchy is eventually killed, and makes this hilarious face.
Rick finds Carl by screaming out "CARL" until he shows up, and there is some ugly cry face happening.
Especially when they remember that Judith is a thing, and she is now dead.
Oh, and Rick drags Carl off into the woods and away from the group... He's named Dad of The Year.
