Walking Dead Discussion Thread: S3, E1: “Seed”
*Spoiler Alert: Do not read this post or the comment section if you have not seen the show. Also, for those who have read the comics, please do not discuss plot elements not revealed on the show.*
So the Walking Dead kicked off tonight and I thought I would restart my weekly posts. Tonight’s show jumped ahead several months from last season’s finale. The survivors are hungry and tired when they find the prison. The hard task of clearing walkers from the grounds begins. As they penetrate deeper into the prison they find themselves surrounded by walkers and Hershel gets bitten on his leg. Rick reacts quickly and cuts Hershel’s leg off with a hatchet.
There are also a few brief scenes with Andrea and Michonne. It seems they survived the winter together and Andrea is now sick. They seem to have developed a strong bond that I am sure will be explored more throughout the season.
As the show ends, the survivors learn that there are non-walker prisoners still alive. All in all, the show packed as much as they could into a season premier. We’ve got fifteen more episodes to see what the prison holds for the group.
