The Walking Dead returned tonight with the 11th episode of this great third season, "I Ain’t a Judas". With only five more episodes until the end of the season, we get a solid episode tonight directed by legendary make-up effects artist and Walking Dead producer Greg Nicotero. While the episode might not have been the most exciting episode that we’ve seen, it does give a little structure to this eight-episode second half of season three.
Tonight’s installment picks up the morning after The Governor’s assault on the prison, as the group is trying to decide what their game plan is. While Rick’s slipping sanity has been an interesting little development in these last few episodes, I’m glad to see him a little more lucid and able to start making orders again. He’s still not operating at 100% capacity, though, so we did get the rare occurrence of Hershel actually raising his voice as he commands Rick to "Get back here!" and start participating with the group. Rick has been walking away from all of his problems recently, so it’s good to see him try to come back into the fold a little bit. I especially liked his little scene with Carl, where even his own sonis telling him that he needs to get his head straight!
