The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 5 | Watch The Walking Dead Season 3 Episode 5
Mere words can not adequately describe the festivities ahead,” says a resident of Woodbury in the opening scene of Sunday’s episode of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” – and there’s probably no better description of what’s to follow on for the next hour.
But for now, Andrea (Laurie Holden) is continuing her streak of being blissfully distracted by the amenities of the town, like ice cubes in her drink.While her friend, Michonne (Danai Gurira), isn’t going to be fooled by the comforts of the town, suspecting there are some pretty disturbing secrets under the surface.
Exhibit A is the little zombie girl that the Governor (David Morrissey) keeps hidden. “Daddy still loves you,” he tells Penny, as he combs her hair and accidentally tears her scalp. (It seems she’s a pretty poorly behaved child and hasn’t licked the problem of trying to bite others.)
At the prison, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has snapped after hearing about his wife Lori’s death. As his newly born daughter is crying, the unhinged former sheriff picks up an axe and heads back inside, completely ignoring his fellow survivors to take out his grief on some zombie skulls.
That leaves Daryl (Norm Reedus) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) to go on an emergency run for baby formula to keep his screaming baby alive. Not exactly Father of the Year.
While the Governor is out of his office, leading the town in a toast for a party to celebrate Woodbury’s existence in a world that’s completely imploded (“It may be held together with duck tape and string, but it works,” he says.), Michonne breaks into his home to steal back her swords. She stumbles on a notebook filled with some creepy gibberish before having to dart out a window when the Governor and Merle (Michael Rooker) return for some cases of beer.
She manages to escape unnoticed – at least until she stumbles on a padlocked area which houses “living” zombies. She breaks the lock, pulls out her sword and makes short work out of the six of them, wordlessly severing limbs and heads with a few strokes of the blade.
