The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 8 Review – The Guns Drawn

The guns are up and the ends are placed in motion. The governor preaches to his people what they must do to survive. He asks them something important. And that is to survive. To do this, he believe that they must overtake the prison, by any means necessary.
 
Some would like to believe that the Governor has changed in some way. Even Herschel would like to believe that somehow the Governor has changed, that or he is just trying to save his own skin… I will take the later. The problem is, the Governor is much more dangerous than he was before and we see this. He is willing to take any life and do anything it takes to “save” two individuals that he thinks are still alive in some way, shape, and form. But doesn’t understand that he is just going to lose them all the same.
 
The Governor says something at the very end to Herschel. How can someone who has a daughter or had a daughter, kill someone else’s. The Governor responds with little hesitation, “Because they aren’t mine.” Pretty cold!
 



 
Rick has that talk with Daryl and it seems that Daryl get more emotional than he has in a while. But is able to accept or understand the issue of sorts. Before Rick can tell Tyrese, Tyrese shows them a very odd situation in the depths of the prison. He shows them a rat strung up on a board as if medical or research experiments have taken place.
 
Just after, a loud bang as the prison shakes. The Governor is knocking at the door and has brought along Herschel and Michonne for peace keeping talks. It seems that the Governor and Rick are trying to hide themselves from power, but really they know all along that power was theirs.
 
As the Governor has become bloodthirsty for the prison, he has left the two individuals, whom he cherishes the most alone at their camp. As one finds that there encampment is more penetrable than they think, a walker comes up from the depths of the ground to bite the little girl in the neck. It seems that the war is inevitable.
 
There is no good that comes from what is going on. As Rick gives a hopeful out look, it seems that for a brief moment in time, the Governor believes in something as he holds the sword by the throat of Herschel. By the end of the talk, the war starts as the Governor removes Herschel’s head using Michonne’s sword. By the end of the war, Michonne will have her revenge.
