I thought it was a little better than filler...
Surprised he tipped his hand on knowing they came back with weapons, but who's sitting out watching the prison ya know? He doesn't really have GREAT people like Darryl around that can go out and survive easily? I found that odd... Where would they be and how would they survive outside the prison just watching it?
Was shocked the Governor let slip what he did honestly, but I liked the exchange... It was tense and I thought the episode built up for something to happen, even though basically nothing did.
I liked Darryl getting along with the Woodbury thug I can never recall his name... Martinez I think? Sharing something... Soldiers of sorts, in a ****** world. Seemed kinda obvious to me that Darryl came out the much more adept killer though. Anyone can swing a bat... well, not Milton, I'm sure he swings a bat like that chick at Woodbury shoots a bow, but still anyone can swing a bat and cause damage. Takes skill for random kill shots and fast reloading a crossbow, not to mention throwing a knife. Darryl makes it an art.
The Herschel/Milton dynamic was great, and I think it really made him look at the Prison group with a new set of eyes... I think it's changing how he looks at Andrea too.
The obvious Andrea story... wah I'm a hoe, blah blah blah.
I liked the episode... Kept thinking someone was in the rafters. Half expected Carl to be there with a gun the whole time on the Governor since I didn't see him at the prison early on. Wonder where he was?
I dig the "not many people are totally bad" dynamic. I've enjoyed that about Merl, about Martinez, about some of the prisoners... most of them even. Makes you wonder where are, and whatever happened to, the Philly crew? What all were they like?
Anyway, yeah, other than finding it odd that the prison's under surveilance and how are they accomplishing that really, I thought the episode was pretty great overall... Wish we'd gotten a good Maggie ass shot like we did with Andrea. It's all you can hope for with basic cable.
