The Governor convinces his new community that it is in their best interests to take over the prison and if necessary, use force to do so. Not everyone is comfortable with that approach - Lilly and Meghan stay behind, with tragic consequences. The Governor and his crew appear at the prison and has two bargaining chips with him - Herschel and Michonne are his prisoners. He tells Rick to be out by sundown. Rick for his part tries to reason with him but the die is cast. In the ensuing battle, many - from both sides - are killed. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Too far gone was the name of the 13th volume of the comic series however the two do not share the same story arc that was shown towards the end of season 5 See more »


At around 35:20 Daryl is pinned down between some of the Governor's men and some walkers, so he takes cover behind a filing cabinet, which are made out of thin sheet metal. It shows bullets hitting the cabinet (by the way bullets don't make sparks when they hit metal objects) but not penetrating it. As filing cabinets are made of either thin sheet metal or aluminum they would not stop a bullet from even a handgun, let alone a bullet from a AR-15 which fires small very high velocity bullets, they would of gone right through it and killed Daryl in an actual fire fight.

User Reviews

Last two episodes help this one look AMAZING! Eventful half finale !
2 December 2013 | by seshasai-trisSee all my reviews

i just finished watching this one. The less I talk about it the better, but many things from this episode pulled me to write a review.

Honestly, last two episodes needed so much of fine tuning and editing and not much story telling was there in those. But the last two episodes mis-led the viewers and at a same time the expectations for the upcoming episode will be less.

Well, the intensity and seriousness of TOO FAR GONE are insanely high. They kept my heart hitting my rib cage so hard. There are so many moments of pain, agony, regret and pity. At the end making the viewers feel like they need counselling to get back to the real world.

There is still bright side to this. Waiting for February badly.

rating: 8.7/10
