They've got to get out of the prison and get on the road again.
It's my belief that the Governor is the main antagonist in much of the graphic novel, right? I have no idea how close they're following that (and I imagine the answer is 'not much'), but I think we've got him for at least the remainder of the season, if not further into the future. The problem once he's gone is coming up with another primary antagonist. You've always got the walkers, but people tend to generally want a central force, be it finding out that there's somewhere someone (or some group) behind the outbreak, who they can go after (which would SO be the TV thing to do, and I'd probably hate) or what have you. People will only follow along with people just trying to survive for so long (or so television networks would have you think, based on their plot developments) without having some strong central villain/group. For a little while you had Shane, to a degree, and then you had Hershel's group on the farm, again, to a degree.
I definitely prefer when they're on the run, though, and hope that they vacate the prison soon enough.
I will say, though, that I've really enjoyed the show as a whole. I was expecting at some point to kind of be over the whole premise, but I'm far from it here mid-way through the 4th season.
As an aside, I really hated when the first old guy died cause I really liked him and couldn't stand Hershel. Now I like Hershel so much that I can't even remember the first old guy's name.
