|The group ready to infiltrate the prison|
|Welcome to Woodbury!|
Michonne escapes Woodbury but Merle and his men are on her trail. Michonne and the men confront each other in a brutal bloodbath that leaves one man decapitated, another stabbed, and Michonne being shot in the hip by Merle before escaping further into the woods...not to mention being covered by a new form of camoflauge against walkers, walker organs and blood.
|A mother and son's final moments|
Michonne takes the basket of items Glenn and Maggie filled up from the store and goes into the prison, a group of walkers around her. Rick and Carl notice the group of walkers and notice that Michonne is hobbling and hurt...and also carrying a basket of baby formula. The walkers then detect Michonne's blood and go against her. Michonne uses every ounce of her being to fight them off but not before collapsing, waiting for death. Carl and Rick save her and take her back to the cell to give her aid and to question her and Glenn and Maggie's wherabouts. She informs the group about Woodbury and the Governor. Rick, Daryl, Oscar and Michonne draw out a plan to sneak into Woodbury to rescue Maggie and Glenn. Daryl desperately wants to meet Merle and convince Rick that he can "talk things out" with Merle but Rick dismisses it and reminds Daryl that he is a valued member and needs to focus on saving Glenn and Maggie.
Back in Woodbury, Maggie and Glenn are each being held in their own interrogation room. Merle goes into Glenn's room and proceeds to beat him to a bloody pulp for information and tops it off with locking up a live walker in the room with Glenn. Glenn barely survives his ordeal with the walker but ends up killing it. In the other room, the Governor sickingly seduces Maggie to pry information out of her. With Maggie and Glenn both refusing to talk, they put them both in the same room with the dead walker as the Governor decides what to do with them. Maggie and Glenn take the bones of the walker to use as stabbing tools. When Merle and one of his men open the door to the room, Maggie stabs one man and Glenn fights Merle but Glenn and Maggie become outnumbered by Merle's men.
Not too far away, Rick and the gang find a log cabin to hide in from a group of walkers chasing them but are met with a human survivor who is less-than-welcoming. The human tries to jump on Rick to kill him and escape but not before Michonne stabs him to death. The gang throw the dead man's body to the walkers from the front of the log cabin as the rest of the gang sneaks on in the back and by nightfall, they arrive outside of Woodbury. Michonne leads the way and sneaks them into a restaurant, where they take a citzen hostage and question him. While the men figure out their next move, Michonne sneaks off to the Governor's office.
|Merle thinking he's Jack Bauer|
Meanwhile, MIchonne goes into the Governor's aquarium room and is stunned by what she sees. She is even more stunned that she sees a little girl with a sack over her head, locked up in a cage and bound by a collar and chain. Thinking the girl is human, Michonne rushes to save the girl...but uncovers the sack to realize it's a walker. Before Michonne can finish her, the Governor rushes in with a gun, screaming at Michonne to not move. Michonne stabs Penny, putting her out of her walker misery. Infuriated, the Governor attacks Michonne, punching her and throwing her at the aquariums, causing the tanks to break and live walker heads to roll on the floor, waiting for a bite of human flesh. Michonne takes a piece of glass and stabs the Governor in the eye. Before Michonne can finish off the Governor, Andrea comes in with a gun pointed at Michonne, screaming at her to not touch him. Michonne, knowing full well Andrea won't kill her, leaves the room to join Rick and his crew.
|War in Woodbury|
|Tyrese, leading his own band of survivors|
After the battle in Woodbury, the Governor calls together to people of the town to the arena where the zombie fights are held and gives a speech about how "terrorists" are now a strong threat against the wholesome town of Woodbury. It's there that the Governor accuses Merle of double-crossing him and tells the crowd that Merle is related to one of the "terrorists". Armed men bring out Daryl...both Merle and Daryl, now restrained and both prisoners of Woodbury, are stunned to come across one another. The Governor asks the crowd what he should do to them when the crowd chants "Kill them, kill them!". The episode ends with the Dixon brothers ready to face what seems like a deadly fate.....
