Despite the dumbness on display, we were on the hook for pretty much the entire hour, helped in no small part by some great performances.

The end result has "Internment" squeaking out the last pathetic rolls of wheel-spinning before the action can truly pick up this season.

While much of the episode was very good and filled with enough tension... there were some scenes that really had to make us wonder how these people managed to survive for so long.

I'm glad we got some time with Hershel.. But it was when everything went crazy again and the walkers seemed destined to take over the prison that the hour picked up for a pretty nonstop ride until the end.

Maybe shifting the setting back and forth from the prison to the veterinary college, and focusing on a more diverse group of characters in a more evenhanded fashion has helped some to overlook some of the tonal issues that have sprung up.

It's a simple episode, leaning more heavily than the show ever has before on Scott Wilson's warm, stoic performance as Hershel, and effectively continued the season 4 mix of despair and complicated action.

It's unfortunate that the episode's climax serves as much as a way to winnow down the cast as it does a thrilling set piece, but thankfully, it's a good set piece.

The star of this installment - aside from Henry the Endotracheal Intubated Zombie - is Hershel.

Hershel is one of the characters who's done the best out of this season. Like Carol, he's evolved to become one of my favorite characters on the show and 'Internment' is his finest hour yet.

Kudos to Scott Wilson for selling such an emotionally fishy moment with all his hoary soul; it took every ounce of his gravitas and then some.

The demise of the prison has long been foreshadowed and now seems to be on the threshold, but it's the subtle exchanges between Rick and Carl that spell a more unsettling reality that's beginning to take shape.

[The writers] stepped up and delivered a script that allowed story, character and performance to come together in one of the most powerful episodes in some time.

Before this recap delves into how wonderful Hershel was during this entire episode, it would be remiss to not mention the big reveal at the end.

There was a full hour of gut-wrenching drama inside the prison as the deadly flu ran its course. It was a Spartan, emotionally exhausting ordeal even by this show's grim standards.

You know, for what could be labeled a filler episode, "Internment" was pretty amazing.

"Internment" was filled with some great walker and machine gun action, but ultimately served as a moment to demonstrate the importance of a balanced approach to both leadership and parenting.

Despite a solid episode with several character-defining moments, the most striking image of the episode is in its last seconds.
