AMC debuted “Prey,” episode 14 of “The Walking Dead” on Sunday, March 17. The previous episode, “Arrow on the Doorpost,” set things up for the action to kick in, and “Prey” delivered. Note that spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date with “The Walking Dead.”
“Prey” opens with a couple of flashbacks. Fans can see Michonne and Andrea sitting by a campfire along with Michonne’s old walker pets. Andrea asks Michonne about them and Michonne doesn’t simply says, “They deserve what they got. They weren’t human to begin with.” This hints that her two walker pets were probably not the best people.
The flashback ends with a scene of the Governor in his torture room, testing his chains with a look of satisfaction and anticipation. [Cue opening theme]
“The Walking Dead” picks back up at Woodbury, Martinez and his men are loading up the pick-up truck with weapons. Milton shows up and asks if the Governor is behind this and Martinez gives vague answers. Andrea appears and asks what the treaty was between Woodbury and the prison. Martinez ignores her but Milton says it’s just a precaution and they just want a show of force.
Meanwhile, the Gov is taking out all of his torture equipment on the table and Milton is seen in the distance looking at him. Milton starts to walk away quickly but the Gov spots him and calls out to him. Milton questions what he was doing and the Governor calls simply calls it his ‘workshop.’ Milton continues to question the Gov and reminds him of their original plan to try and beat the virus and pleads to the Gov to just let it all go, including Michonne, and to move on. The Governor ignores Milton’s pleas and leaves.
Milton tells Andrea the truth, including the Governor’s plans to torture Michonne. The Governor enters the room and Andrea tries to shoot him but Milton stops her from taking her shot, telling her that she won’t leave alive and Martinez will just carry on his terror. Andrea decides to leave and bring Milton with her but he refuses and claims that Woodbury is his home but Andrea belongs with Rick’s group. Walking down the street, Martinez calls out to Andrea a couple times asking her for her weapon and ammo, Gov’s decision. The Gov shows up right after and tells her that he wants to protect her from the situation and she plays dumb about it and moves on.
Tyrese and the Sasha are keeping guard at one of Woodbury’s walls and Andrea shows up claiming that she was ordered to take watch. Tyrese refuses unless Martinez says it himself and Andrea attempts to leave. They try to stop her but she pulls a knife on them and explains that Woodbury isn’t as nice as they think and she was also fooled. They reluctantly let her go.
Tyrese and his group go to talk to the Governor about Andrea leaving. The Governor asks them to help Martinez with his run. The Governor plans to go find Andrea and Milton tries to stop him and asks him to let her go since she wants to be at the prison. The Governor figures out that Milton spoke to her and gets furious. He grabs Milton and asks if he also told her about killing Michonne. Milton nods ‘yes’ out of fear and the Gov pushes him and storms away. Tyrese talks to Martinez about the run and hope that they’re not going after Andrea and they become more and more suspicious. Allen and Tyrese argue about Donna for a bit and then they leave for the run.
Andrea, walking down the road, hears a car and hides in the woods. The car passes but an arm grabs her from behind a tree and suddenly there are two walkers in front of her the one that grabbed her from behind. She manages to pull out her knife and disposed of them and runs away.
Martinez and Tyrese’s group show up at an area that has a hole full of biters. Tyrese and Sasha question the point of having all those biters. They ask if it has to do with the prison. Tyrese says they’re not cool with feeding people to biters especially because of the women and children that are there. Martinez says the Governor will send them all back Allen says Tyrese doesn’t speak for him and his son Ben. Tyrese tries to convince them that they’ll be fine and look out for each other again. They get into a fight and Tyrese dangles Allen over the pit of biters but pulls him back up. Martinez sends them back to Woodbury to be handled by the Governor.
Andrea is still heading to the prison and crossing an open field. She hears a car coming closer and ducks down and hide. It speeds up and starts coming closer. Andrea decides to run and the Governor is chasing after her honking his horn. Andrea manages to get away through the woods. Night time comes and Andrea finds an abandon building to hide out in, but the Governor shows up in his car. She accidentally makes a noise and starts to hide. The Gov. heads in the building and resumes their game of cat and mouse. She tries to creep away carefully and the Governor starts whistling. A walker appears and she quickly disposes of it, but accidentally signals her location to the Governor. They creep around even more and the Governor pleads for her to come back with him to Woodbury saying that they all need her. Just as Andrea is about to signal to Rick, the Governor manages to get a hold of her and takes her back to Woodbury.
Back at the walker pit, a shadow is seen setting all of the walkers on fire. It’s not shown who. The Governor comes back to Woodbury in the morning and Martinez asks if he found Andrea but the Governor just shakes his head. Martinez notifies him about the biters in the pit being set on fire and tells him that he might have to question Tyrese’s group. The Governor confronts the group and they asked if they found Andrea and the Governor says that he didn’t and barely came back himself. The Governor says that the biters in the hole are just for show and they’re not to cause real harm and Tyrese is reluctant to believe him and asks why it they didn’t just say that in the first place. The Governor just says they are outsiders so they don’t get to know every detail. Tyrese apologizes and asks for another chance to stay and the Governor says it’s ok. Right before the Gov leaves them, he asks Tyrese where he got the gasoline. Tyrese stands there with a puzzled look and doesn’t know what the Gov is talking about. The Governor says never mind and walks out.
Milton is walking down the street and sees the Gov. He asks if he found Andrea but he just says no. Milton then says it’s a shame about what happened to the biters and hopes that he found who did it. The Gov stares as at him and says that he already knows. Milton walks away.
The show closes with a short scene of Andrea in the torture room, tied up with her mouth covered, a horrified look on her face. [End of episode]
