TOPIC CONTAINS SPOILERS
If seeing Herschel decapitated by the governor in the mid season finale wasnt enough to make you say " Why they got to do Herschel like that" then seeing his zombified head laying on the ground will. Thats exactly how the mid season premiere opens up. We get to see the aftermath of the Governors ill fated attempt to take over the prison. We also get to catch a glimpse of the governors dead body or at least we are supposed to think that. Notice he never turned, so maybe we haven't seen the last of him. Then dont forget Michonne gets 2 new pets.
Following up Rick and Carl wander the streets of an abandoned neighborhood in search of shelter to kind of regroup from what just went down. From the beginning you can see Carl is feeling a little independent. He is clearly sick of being treated as a kid and believes he can fend for him self. Well how quickly did he find out he is not as big as he thought. Either he is the luckiest kid alive or hes just that good. One things for sure. He loves chocolate pudding.
I really like how we keep getting to see a little more of Michonnes backstory. Right up to season 4 she really has been portrayed as nothing more than a nomad that can sure swing a kitana which she showed us when a zombie look alike of herself must have looked at her the wrong way. Well she is far much more than that.
Im just excited to see whats happened to the rest of the gang and what kind of struggles they will face. Remember most of this group has always had each other to lean on when things got tough. Now we will see how they do without one another.
