    The Walking Dead "Home" Review: Don't Fence Me In

    Rick traveled further into Cuckoo Town this week and The Governor didn't fare much better as the plot stalled while the show waits for the finale.

  • Episode Summary

    The group debates the next step; Rick searches for a lost friend; Daryl and Merle question their choices; the Governor restores order within Woodbury.

    • Making Up

      This was a relatively large episode, regarding the things that happened. It was absolutely wonderful to see Darryl back, even if he brought Merle with him - it was going to happen, but it's always the timing that does it. And speaking of such, the Governor's attack was started off perfectly. It was a slow, bantery scene that quickly devolved into the firefight and walker attack. It was an exciting end to the episode and a grand opening to what's sure to come. Good episode.moreless
    • Nice episode, but huge film error

      Between 25th and 26th minutes, you can see Daryl's tattoo on his back, in his right side and a few seconds after, he has it on his left side ... Simple but obvious mistake, that shoudn't happen' ...
    • crossing the line couple of times

      I am quite disappointed to be honest. In s02 of Homeland there were some similar scenes in which I just thought "seriously?" and now TWD has this problem repeatedly, which is really sad.

      Attention, spoilers following!


      I don't expect those people to be supercool and keep their nerves in a firefight, but the combination of the governor impersonating Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore . i'm invincible yay) and four to six people on one side shooting four to six people on the other side with military grade automatic weapons with scopes without any injuries is just plain ridiculous.

      The scene where the camera follows Ricks view through the scope and he aims like 1 meter next to the attacker and shoots a burst, then goes prone and then is the clip empty I laughed out loud.

      They all are fixed to doing headshots on zombies and repeatedly do so (Rick with his revolver) but noooo.

      And I will not even start talking about really mental decisions or thought processes - Andrea turning shrink (lol), Rick yeah sure, the Glenn-Maggy 'conflict' etc etc. Clumsy.

      edit: i literally stopped watching to put out this comment, and what happens next? Following the surprisingly clever attack with the RV full of walkers, the gov and his pals drive off? Instead of picking off the forced-to-act people inside? wtf?moreless
    • Home - Walking Dead

      The Governor has become an entertaining character finally, despite the fact others feel he has always been there, but the show just does not have a lot of excitement going on right now.

      Rick's behavior and recent actions are just boring TV.
    • The Dixon brothers, walker hunters!

      A family hour that revolves around Merle and Daryl may not be 7th Heaven material, but its a family hour nonetheless. In Walking Dead style, the episode takes us to a comfortable spot where characters bond, rest and enjoy home, before it rips the spot right under Carol's nose in the form of gun fire. The Governor is back! Threatening eveything Michonne holds dear, he is testing their time response with an assault full of walkers.

      It's up to the man who was going to robb Carol's camp before season 1 was over, to protect them from a Governor that swears would destroy the prison before this show is over.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Merle: (to Daryl) Hey, man, I ain't wasting my bullets on a couple of strangers that ain't never cooked me a meal or felicitated my piece. That's my policy. You'd be wise to adopt it, brother.

      • Daryl: (to Merle) I may be the one walking away, but you're the one who's leaving. Again.

      • Beth: (during a group discussion about the Governor) Why are we so sure he is going to attack? Maybe you scared him off?
        Michonne: He had fish tanks full of heads; walkers and human...trophies. He's coming.

    • NOTES (5)

      • The bridge that Merle and Daryl helps some survivors is the Line Creek Bridge near Griffen, GA.

      • Original International Airdates:
        Finland: February 24, 2013 on FOX

      • When the group from Woodbury attack the jail releasing the zombies with the truck, the Governor killed a zombie who appears from behind him. The same zombie appears later when Rick is escaping after he's running out of ammo (look well, the same shirt, same t-shirt and same pants). Maybe it's a edition error, but it's noticeable.

      • Goof: After Merl grabs Daryl's shirt and rips it halfway off his back, the revealed tattoos on Daryl swap shoulders (from his R shoulder, to his L shoulder) from one scene to the next.
