On Feb. 24, 2013, AMC aired season 3, episode 11 of The Walking Dead, titled “I Ain’t a Judas.” This episode marked the first reunion between Andrea (Laurie Holden) and Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) group since the farm fell in the finale episode of season 2.

After walkers overran Hershel’s (Scott Wilson) farm at the end of season 2, the group met on the highway and took inventory of their missing members. T-Dog (IronE Singleton) stated he saw Andrea go down. Viewers would know she yelled for help but was unheard above all the growls of the walkers.

She would later be saved by Michonne (Danai Gurira), eventually reunite with Merle (Michael Rooker), and move to Woodbury. There she would form an unhealthy attachment with the Governor (David Morrisey).

The Walking Dead – I ain’t a Judas

During the season 3 episode, Carol (Melissa McBride) has a candid conversation with Andrea about how to rid them of the Governor, who was hell-bent on destroying Rick and the prison. Carol tells Andrea, “You need to sleep with him, give him the greatest night of his life. Get him to drop his guard, and then when he’s sleeping, you can end this.”

But Andrea is unable to do this and believes she can negotiate peace between Rick and the Governor. Andrea’s failure to kill him at this point will lead to the death of many, including herself and Hershel, and the prison’s fall, all at the hands of the Governor.

Andrea could have been a valuable group member, but she was a bit too meddlesome to be as much help as she could have been.

It’s too bad Laurie Holden didn’t get the chance to play the comic version of Andrea, as she would have done an outstanding job in this role.
