Storyline

The Governor convinces his new community that it is in their best interests to take over the prison and if necessary, use force to do so. Not everyone is comfortable with that approach - Lilly and Meghan stay behind, with tragic consequences. The Governor and his crew appear at the prison and has two bargaining chips with him - Herschel and Michonne are his prisoners. He tells Rick to be out by sundown. Rick for his part tries to reason with him but the die is cast. In the ensuing battle, many - from both sides - are killed. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Rick Grimes: [points to Tara] You. You in the ponytails. Is this what you want? Is this what any one of you want?
Mitch Dolgen: What we want is what you got. Period. Time for you to leave, asshole.
Rick Grimes: Look, I've fought him before. And after, we took in his old friends. They've become leaders in what we have here. Now you put down your weapons, walk through those gates... you're one of us. We let go of all of it, and nobody dies. Everyone who's alive right now. Everyone's who's made it this far. We've all done the worst kinds...

Greatest episode of all time
17 October 2019 | by some_dude1215See all my reviews

This is probably my favourite episode of the walking dead. coming back to it reminds me of how good these golden days of the walking dead were. obviously seasons 10 and above wont be able to be as good as this episode, as that sense of finding security and defending your home is lost. this will probably be the best episode of the walking dead to ever be made, besides no way out.
