The face of didn't disappoint and not everybody made it to the end - SPOILERS AHEAD
The Walking Dead has reached the midway point of season four and after being reunited with old foes and faced with new threats from within and outside the prison walls, the midseason finale did hold a lot of promise. When it aired on AMC last night, on Sunday, 1 December, the coming together of Rick Grimes and our new friend Brian Heriot, AKA our old enemy The Governor, did not disappoint.
Not everyone will make it to the end
Heriot, as he goes by now, has assumed the position as alpha dog of another collection of people, people in desperate need of a leader, and he has plans for war. He leads them with a rallying call, preaching to the camp, “The people who destroyed the camp I was in with Martinez, they live in a prison… We could live there,” before showing off his spoils from last week; a captured Michonne and Hershel, currently being held hostage. Tara is the only one who seems surprised by this, did he capture two people on his lonesome, with no help or weaponry? But the Gov is able to feed her some cock and bull story about how he happened to bump into them and got lucky. Whatever he's feeding the camp, Michonne and Hershel could be key to gaining access to the prison, and without bloodshed perhaps too.
The man behind the sinister Governor has spoken about what we might expect from the character now he has returned.
David Morrissey has won more than his fair share of fans for playing everyone's favorite character to hate on AMC's The Walking Dead. Last week, in the dying seconds of episode five (season four), we got our first glimpse of the returning Gov. and this week the entire episode was dedicated to the time he's spent between now and the end of season three, but we're still no closer to knowing what he wants.
The Governor and Rick will face off once again
Sitting down to speak with Rolling Stone, Morrissey digressed on what his character has been through and what he might want now that he is back in the frame in the series. Although unwilling to give too much away, Morrissey did give indications - similar to what we saw in last night's episode - that The Gov. may return as a changed man.
The biggest threat on last night's episode was the flu, not the zombie virus, however the biggest treat of the night was kept until the end
In the latest episode of The Walking Dead, titled 'Internment,' it wasn't just the zombies threatening harmony within the prison walls as a deadly outbreak of influenza was seriously affecting much of the group and tensions were beginning to mount. There was also a huge surprise in store for us as we reached the end of the episode, as we saw the shadowy return of a former favourite. The rest of this story contains spoilers.
The Walking Dead is back on track thanks to 'Internment'
The first thing we notice in 'Internment' is just how many sick people are draining the prisons' supplies from within the quarantine zone. With their numbers rising quick, its up to Hershel to work over time and ensure that he can save as many people as possible. But even for a guy with the patience of a saint, his wits are being run thin as the casualty numbers continue to rise and their conditions only seem to get worse. When we see our first flu-caused fatality die in Glenn's care, all whilst Glenn is having a coughing fit, we get to see just how serious things are. Things got even more worse when the deceased flu victims began to rewake as zombies (naturally) and climbed from their cells into the sick bay, making more zombies and placing Hershel and Glenn in grave danger.
There were some real horror moments in the latest episode of the AMC series as things began to get lively again
'Internment' is the latest episode of the Walking Dead and in a season where thrills and shocks were becoming more scarce in favour of pretty depressing story lines, episode five of the latest season was a much-needed shot in the arm. Twists were met with new shocks as 'Internment' and near-misses were met with genuine walker threats, and what's more,t here was a great little twist to cap off the episode. The rest of this article contains spoilers.
The series is back on track after last nights episode
The first thing we notice in 'Internment' is just how many sick people there are and how quickly their numbers are rising. Hershel is working over time to make sure that he can save as many people as possible, but even his patience is being run thin as the casualty numbers continue to rise due to the flu infecting the prison. Our first casualty occurred when one mof the guys Glenn was seeing to died right when Glenn was having a coughing fit, which wasn't too convenient to say the least. Things got even more inconvenient though when the deceased flu victims began to rewake as zombies and climbed from their cells into the sick bay, making more zombies and placing Hershel in grave danger.
'The Walking Dead' star David Morrissey will lend his voice to the autobiography
Morrissey sparked ample conversation last month when he finally released his long-awaited memoirs, titled Autobiography, through Penguin Classics. Over the weekend (on 3 Nov.) we learned that the book will be turned into an audiobook, with Moz being read by another Morrissey: actor David Morrissey.
Morrissey has enlisted the help of Morrissey for the audiobook
The Liverpool-born The Walking Dead star was announced as the man to voice the memoirs through Morrissey fan site True to You, which has garnered a reputation for having a direct line to Mozza and generally being the go-to source for anything Morrissey related. A bluntly put statement posted to the website on Sunday, 3 November, read, "Penguin Classics will release a complete and unabridged digital download of Morrissey's Autobiography on 5 December 2013. The audiobook is read by acclaimed actor David Morrissey."

AMC's hit flesh eating series returned last night to inject some zombie-shaped goodness into the hole left by the 'Breaking Bad' finale
The Walking Dead season four premiered on AMC on Sunday, 13 October, night and with this return there was an eerie calm over the people, as a sense of togetherness has developed over the period between the end of season three and here. As the title suggests, walkers have been scarce in numbers and devious characters have been keeping to themselves, but as detailed in our season four preview, there will be a whole new threat to the characters this season, one that is only just about to rear it's ugly head. The rest of this article contains spoilers.
What could be i store for the characters this season?
The Woodbury people are still hemmed in at the prison and we see Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in the yard tending to his crops, zombies clawing at him from the other side of the gate. Finding a gun in the ground during his work, he tosses it aside like yesterday's newspaper. Still the same old Grimes. When Carl (Chandler Riggs) comes out to see his dad, who is this time tending to the prison yard pigs farm, Rick warns him not to name the pigs (Carl notices that "Violet" looks sick) as they are food.

There are SPOILERS AHEAD you have been warned.
We all thought The Governor would die at the end of season three of The Walking Dead – we just did. Then he went berserk and killed a load of people – people, not zombies – and disappeared in a big scary truck. He’s not dead, and now we can’t wait for his return in season 4.
The excellent Morrissey is turning into AMC's main man
But there’s a caveat to all this; you see, when we find out about actors getting work in real life, we, as humans, do sums in our little heads – the cogs start turning and then someone goes, ‘hang on?’ David Morrissey is leading a new pilot for AMC’s Line of Sight, so, doesn’t that mean the Governor is going to be killed off early doors?
Fan's wait patiently for the new season, and this 4.5 min trailer should keep them happy.
In the extended Walking Dead Season 4 trailer, let loose at Comic-Con 2013, we see a more hardened version of the survivors we’ve come to know and love. And as David Morrissey explained to io9, there’s a whole new threat to be wary of. From the trailer, we can deduce that the group (or probably Rick) decided that staying at the prison was best; they’ve built a farm and even have little piglets.
The opening scene sees Daryl using all his experience. “Just give it another second,” he says knowingly, presumably drawing walkers to him so they can loot wherever they’re residing. But how long can this last? Eventually, and we can only assume this is The Governor’s work, the group’s safety is compromised by someone feeding walkers near the gates, and attacking cell blocks.

The Primetime Emmy Award Nominations will be announced on Thursday 18th July. Netflix's 'Arrested Development' is a likely contender. 'The Americans'; 'Breaking Bad' and 'Scandal' are also likely candidates.
The Primetime Emmy Award nominations will be announced on Thursday (18th July). Speculation surrounding the awards is high, with Netflix's Arrested Development predicted to triumph. The awards will be announced by Kate Mara and Aaron Paul.
Aaron Paul will announce the nominations on Thursday.
Game Of Thrones is also suspected as a strong contender in the category of Best Drama Series. Homeland who won a number of awards last year is predicted to flop owing to its disappointing second series.
We take a look back at season three, and look towards season four
For many, season three of The Walking Dead ended disappointingly. Early threats of ‘war is coming’ died down and with a damp squib, the run petered out with many of the conflicts and plot lines intact. Perfect for those who enjoy the moody exchanges between Rick and The Governor, but the season’s denouement did little for the show’s progression.
It wouldn’t be fair to judge season three entirely on its own merits, though – season four is looking like it’ll have a profound effect on peoples’ opinions on the last.
The Walking Dead fans get into the swing of things
After the tiny drama Shifty, British filmmaker Creevy turns to both Hong Kong and Hollywood for inspiration, creating an unusually glossy, explosive London cop thriller. But for all the sleek filmmaking and energetic action, the film struggles to make us care about characters who are dark and troubled. Their complexity is interesting, but not hugely engaging.
Adding to the visual sheen, the action is set among the gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers of Canary Wharf in East London, where detective Max (McAvoy) is still struggling to accept his inability to stop a heist three years earlier. The mastermind Jacob (Strong) managed to escape then, but he's back in town now, so Max is chomping at the bit to grab him. Max's lieutenant (Morrissey) tells him to back off, but he secretly works with his partner Sarah (Riseborough) to join the hunt. Meanwhile, Jacob teams up with an old pal (Mullan) to find out why one of the gang members (Harris) is on a murderous rampage. Which puts Jacob on a collision course with Max.
With so much full-on gunplay in a city where cops aren't actually armed, the film feels like it's set in some sort of parallel reality London. And Creevy augments this fantasy tone by indulging in shootouts that are sudden and brutal - like John Woo crossed with Michael Mann. The plot is full of clever twists, as motivations are revealed and a political conspiracy becomes apparent. It's all a bit convoluted and implausible, and the details are annoyingly murky, but within this premise the cast are able to find some emotional resonance.

Max Lewinsky is a determined police detective who remains bitter about never managing to find and arrest the elusive criminal that is Jacob Sternwood. However, he is in with another chance of victory when Sternwood leaves his hideout in Iceland to return to the streets of London where his son Ruan is lying unconscious in a hospital bed after suffering a near-fatal bullet wound to the stomach during a heist that went wrong. Knowing that Sternwood will attempt to sneak in to the hospital to see his son and also attempt to smuggle him out under the police's nose, Lewinsky pulls out all the stops in the biggest effort of his career to catch this former criminal and reinstate his flawless reputation. However, as they come face to face, the both of them find themselves in the middle of a much bigger scheme and the pair must work together to uncover the shady truth.

Sunday night's episode of 'The Walking Dead' was entitled 'Sick' - so we pretty much knew what we were in for. The second instalment of season three picked up after the premiere's abrupt cliff-hanger that saw Hershel bitten by a zombie, leading Rick (Andrew Lincoln) to perform an amateur leg amputation on the floor of the prison cafeteria. Nice.
In the concluding moments of that episode, the group discovered five mysterious figures hiding in the back of the room: more survivors. With both parties understandably cautious, guns were drawn, though Rick managed to calm the situation and convince the survivors that there are no hospitals, no cell phones and no national guard to help. Though it was a thrilling episode, we were left a little deflated by the lack of David Morrissey. The British star has signed on to play The Governor in the new series (a character considered one of the greatest comic book villains of all time) though is yet to appear. Show creator Robert Kirkman attempted to clear up the situation when speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, explaining, "People know that he's coming and that's something that's going to cause quite a bit of tension as viewers watch the episodes: When is he appearing, when is this going to happen? We've had a lot of fun teasing that and delaying that reveal but I will say we're not going to be torturing people for too long."
Though we're still waiting on episode two's ratings; the season premiere of The Walking Dead delivered a phenomenal 10.9 million viewers.
The Walking Dead is readying itself for series 3, which will hit screens later this month, and one thing is for sure is that there wont be any shortage of gore, guts and glory. So, for those who still can't wait any longer even though the airing date is looming ever closer, here's a few mini-spoilers of what can be expected for season 3.
First off the bat, will be the introduction of Michonne, who was first brought in to the show during the shocking finale of series 2. Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, will have her character dissected and background laid out for all to see, and whether she will prove to be an ally to Jack and the rest of the survivors from series 1 will have to be seen.

Working with new boss Nash (Considine), who's tormented for being gay, Brant starts bullishly breaking the rules to solve the case.

The Deal is a prequel to The Queen only in the sense that it involves historical details that occurred before those in The Queen. It also involves the same writer, director, and star Michael Sheen, who also plays Tony Blair in this film. The movie involves succession to the position of British Prime Minister in the late 1990s, which found young guns Tony Blair and Gordon Brown both riding high in the liberal Labour Party, rapidly becoming the most popular party in the country and one which delivered a crushing defeat to the Conservative Party in the 1997 elections.

You'll need more than faith to accept the film's ridiculous premise, cooked up by sibling screenwriters Carey and Chad Hayes. These two can't distinguish between horrifying and horrible. They last collaborated on the dreadful House of Wax remake starring Paris Hilton. Enough said.
