The anticipation is palpable as "When the Dead Come Knocking" effectively brings Team Prison and Team Woodbury together for a mid-season showdown.
Another strong installment to a strong season.
For once, The Walking Dead managed to make me feel something outside its tried-and-true triangle of adrenaline, revulsion, and boredom.
On this "zombie drama," the zombies have literally become a part of the scenery -- so unremarkable that neither the characters nor the series even bothers to comment on their presence anymore.
"“When the Dead Come Knocking"” was crawling with tension last night.
Last night's episode of The Walking Dead was an hour-long interlude that allowed the show's two camps to solidify their positions before next week's midseason finale, which promises, among other things, lots and lots of chaos.
It was a transitional episode, but a largely effective one, particularly in detailing the physical and psychological torture Glenn and Maggie are under while captives of the Governor and Merle.
'When The Dead Come Knocking' is a well-paced episode, bringing the two plots of the season together smoothly as we head into next week's mid-season finale.
Thankfully, it looks like the s**t is really gonna hit the fan come next week's episode, when all of the information is finally going to be out on the table.
Talk about kicking things up a notch! While we worried that the number of episodes keeping Woodbury and the prison separate could slow the season's pace, "When the Dead Come Knocking" kicks into high gear toward the inevitable confrontation.
I'm far more invested in Season 3 than I was last season. While Season 2 had its moments, episodes like "When The Dead Come Knocking" are so tense and strange that I find myself watching much more closely than before.
A flat-out entertaining hour that put things in place for a midseason finale that appears to be only the beginning of the impending war between Team Prison and The Woodbury Militia.
I'm excited to see how this very macabre version of a potential house swap works out.
