Week 5 of the Walking Dead, "Internment" is one of the more intense episodes this season.  The episode featured a race against a jail outbreak of zombies threatening Hershel and the others in the cell block.  If anything can be said about this episode, it's "Hershel's" episode.  Reflecting on what he has been doing to prolong the lives of the ailing survivors, and preventing those that have died to be reanimated to attack the others.  It's definitely been a harrowing and long journey for Herschel.  Which is why you kind of get the feeling his days are numbered.  After all, when we had that "Carol" episode, back in "Infected", we saw what happened to her.  Sure we may see her again before the end of the season, but for now she's not around.

I have a few scenes that I love in this episode.  My favorite would probably be when Lizzie lures the walker away from Glenn like a dog.  What I which they would've gone more into was Herschel's reaction to when Rick told him what happened to Carol.  He's always followed Rick for the most part on these kind of decisions, even when he didn't believe they were right.  We should hear more hopefully from  him on this matter next episode along with Daryl and Tyreese's opinion.  Spoiler next... beware...


So the end of the episode features the Governor looking on from a distance as Rick and Carl check their harvest.  AMC's in its trailer for next week doesn't hide the fact that the Governor will be back next episode.  Undoubtedly, he's been orchestrating the weakening of the prison's outer fences all season long.  As the walls are coming down, and just three episodes left, I wonder if this story arc will come to a close or continue on to February.

What did you think of last week's episode?
