TV Review: THE WALKING DEAD: Season 3, Episode 4: Killer Within

Lauren Cohan Steven Yeun The Walking Dead Killer Within

The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 4 Killer Within ReviewThe Walking Dead: Season 3, Episode 4: Killer Within contained the death of two major characters, one of which the audience actually got to know. Out of Laura Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) and T-Dog (IronE Singleton), the viewer got to know Laura the most. She had the character arcs, the ups and downs, and was the object of a love triangle. T-Dog was a combination of actions, reactions, and noble behavior.

The viewer that has not read the comic book probably did not expect Laura to die, especially with the presence of Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) at the prison. The knife C-section with no pain killers was certainly unexpected but at least the pain knocked her out before Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) cut into her uterus and stuck her hands inside it.

The Walking Dead made good use of the past further into the scene with a flashback and the resolve it gave to Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) to put a bullet in his dead mother’s head. That didn’t make the act any harder to swallow by his father Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) when he realized what his son was forced to do.

The baby crying, Rick turning and seeing Maggie with bloody hands, the baby, Carl with bloody hands, and no Laura was the best silent moment in the Killer Within and of the season so far.

Andrew (Markice Moore) showed himself to be alive, clever, fast, and very resourceful. He completely outsmarted his opponents, so much so that a.) they didn’t know that he was alive, and b.) they had no idea he was behind all of the zombie shenanigans that day. Using the zombies as battle thralls was Michonne brilliant.

Not since Shane has Rick had a physical opponent that was his equal, a surprising turn of events since Rick is bigger than Andrew.

Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) is going to go look for his brother whether The Governor (David Morrissey) gives him permission or not. You could see that by the expression on his face (an example of good face acting). If Merle gets Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) back, The Governor’s hold on Merle might be lessened, supplanted. Merle may no longer be the lone wolf with a collar fit snuggly around his neck.

Michonne (Danai Gurira) is shrewd and very observant. She may be one of smartest characters on the show. The Governor may be as well. His in-provision during his conversation with Michonne was impressive but Michonne is no one’s fool.
