The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 5 Mission: Random Destruction? The next episode of The Walking Dead is called Say The Word, and it looks like it picks up directly after the horrific events at the prison. Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is reeling from Lori’s death, and as the shellshocked group stands around in the prison yard, Rick picks up an axe and walks off. It looks like his eyes are full of purpose, so where’s he going and what’s he planning to do?
The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 5 Party At The Governor’s Place: Over in the Pleasantville-style paradise that is Woodbury, Phillip The Governor (David Morrisey) is throwing a lavish party for the residents to celebrate “how far we’ve come”. However, there’s always a darker undercurrent running underneath the perfect facade of Woodbury. And this week, we’ll see Michonne pulling her katana on the Governor. As Andrea has become more charmed by the Governor, Michonne isn’t taken in by him. Whatever sparks the altercation, we hear The Governor saying “How about this? I’ll keep a lid on your little outburst. You join the research team. You obviously have skills. You’re not afraid of biters. Merle will take care of you.”
Unsurprisingly, the two prisoners aren't being welcomed with open arms.But it's interesting to note that they're still around. Perhaps after Oscar shot Andrew, Rick decided these two guys earned their place within the group. Or maybe everyone's too grief-stricken to want to bother throwing these two guys out just yet. Regardless, they're around, and in addition to offering some words of sympathy, they're willing to help out. It's making me like and trust them, which I hope isn't a mistake.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET on AMC. Here's a photo from next week's episode. And you can read our breakdown of last night's "Killer Within" here. Moving along, a clip from episode five, "Say the Word," can be found inside. In this installment, Rick struggles after another loss and Michonne is suspicious of the Governor. The clip finds Axel and Oscar try to comfort a grieving Glenn.
