The Walking Dead writers appear to have misread the number of episodes for season 3 and didn't have enough material to fit a 16-episode season. Or maybe the producers' master plan is to just turn The Talking Dead into a two-hour show? The last few episodes have definitely felt like they have the exciting stuff loaded up for the finale, but they have a few pesky episodes left so they have to drag out the story. "Arrow on the Doorpost" continues the tradition of characters who talk and talk, while not bothering with that pesky character and story development. The war between the prison crew and Woodbury is almost here, but first we may need some riveting episodes of talking while sewing and a discussion in a zombie-run coffee shop. I can't wait.
