Episode 306 The Walking Dead – Hounded
This episode of The Walking Dead, opens with Merle and a gang from Woodbury hunting michonne in the woods. Michonne, has left them a message telling them to go back, which Merle ignores.
Michonne quickly dispatches a couple of the hunters, and then takes off into the woods.
We cut back to the prison, and we see Rick is talking to a woman on the phone. She says that they are someplace safe, but they are not willing to bring in new people just yet. Rick returns to cell lock C where he just checks in on Carl and then leaves.
Back in the woods, Merle and Neal, put the other people from Woodbury down. Speaking of Woodbury, back there Andrea and the Governor are having a talk. Andrea tells the Governor that she does not agree with the fights.
Back in the prison, Rick gets another phone call. When asked about how he lost this wife, Rick says “I don’t want to talk about it” and whoever is on the phone just hangs up.
Back in Woodbury, Andrea jumps over the wall to put down a walker, much to the chagrin of the little girl that is supposed to be teaching Andrea how to shoot the bow and arrow. We get to see Andrea smile when she puts the knife to the walker’s head.
Hershel walks in to the boiler room where Lori died and Rick has been getting the phone calls. Rick tells Hershel about the phone calls, Hershel picks up the phone and there is no dial tone.
I wonder, is Rick just imagining that the phone is ringing?
We get to learn a bit about Merle and Daryl. Daryl tells Carl about how his mom died, trying to make Carl feel better, but in the end, Carl knows what happened and what he did. What Carl did, was real.
Back in Woodbury, Andrea confesses to the governor that she liked the fights, she just didn’t like that tha she liked the fights.
In the woods, Michonne, Merle and Neil get into it. Michonne, got injured and managed to escape. She crawls around in the woods and manages to catch up with Glenn and Maggie out on a scouting trip.
Michonne, watches Maggie and Glenn from a secure place.
Andrea and the governor, get it on.
Merle shows up and surprises Glenn and Maggie. Merle offers to forget everything, provided that Glenn takes Merle back with them to his brother.
Merle, of course, betrays them, gets the jump on them and puts the gun to Maggie’s head. Merle gets Glenn to drive the suburban back to Woodbury. They leave behind the baby formula, and Michonne.
Back in the prison, we find out that the phone calls are all in Rick’s head. The phone, is not really ringing. The voice he hears, is Lori, T-Dog and others.
Rick comes back to cell block C, and for the first time, holds his baby girl.
Daryl finds carol, who was hiding out in a cell. he starts to Cary her back to cell block C.
Rick, Carl, Beth and Hershel step outside the cell block, and Rick sees Michonne, who is carrying the baby formula that Glenn and Maggie left behind with her to the prison. Since Michonne is covered in walker guts, she’s able to walk amongst the biters and comes up to the prison fence where Rick sees her.
