Cast & Crew
I Ain't a Judas Photos
The show's grip on me grows tighter throughout the episode, and by the time the prison crew starts pitching that Andrea kill the Governor ("you chose a warm bed over a friend") after a schnookle session, I'm kind of hooked.
I thought "I Ain't a Judas" did a good job of showing how much the group has changed since Andrea last saw them, whether for good (Carol has really blossomed), for ill (Merle is there, and trusted with assault weapons) or for both.
This episode was interesting. While plot-wise we revisited much of the same territory (literally), in terms of individual scenes, there were signs of improvement, of life.
Even though last night's episode was an incredible slow burner, there were several developments that could drastically change our story in the coming weeks.
'I Ain't A Judas' is a padding episode, pushing a few minor pieces around the table with some arbitrary dramatics and zombie decapitations.
Sorry, writers. The moral fog you're trying to cultivate just isn't there for us.
For the first time in the season, all major characters have had their reunions and most secrets have been exposed, diminishing the more frustrating aspects of the season to date.
'I Ain't a Judas' allows some of this season's less-featured characters to shine.
"I Ain't No Judas" was The Walking Dead at its best, combining brain-busting violence with some great character moments. YEAH I SAID GREAT CHARACTER MOMENTS! I know, crazy.
This... was a very Andrea-centric episode.. It was a challenge going in, given how much this show has bungled this particular character, making her increasingly exasperating and frustrating to watch.
