Loved this episode... The beginning of Rick going apeshit, just going all murderdeathkill on some zombies. I didn't even mind the phone bit, because it looks like they got it completely out of the way in one episode, rather than drag the stupid out over 3 issues like the comic.

Daryl as always is the ultimate survivor, though he is now tied for first place with Michonne for best character on the show...

Oh Michonne, you terrific sweet badass... even covered in rotten entrails you are beautiful. At first I thought you were just ok with the sword, because you were just fighting slow ass zombies with it... but christ girl, you are absolute badass. Sexy I would say if I wasn't afraid saying so would get my head cut off.

Hershel has come a long way to being one of my favorite characters, and the inmates are coming along nicely. Oddly enough, I wasn't even upset to see Carol still alive. Though of the core cast, she is the one person I think is the most expendable. Its probably the hair.

Andrea, you stupid stupid fool... what is it with you and your willingness to let the most fucked up men you meet fill you with their yogurt? I know its the whole "bad guy" thing... but fuck, crazy is like spanish fly to her. I would say she is weakly written, but I have known far too many women who act just like her. Still, Andrea cannot die fast enough for me... with Lori gone she is my new most hated character... and really the only female left on the show I just can't stand... which means she will probably be around forever.

There is no secret as to why the Governor wants to keep her, and Michonne for that matter around. They are breeding stock to him. Which while evil as fuck, makes sense. Michonne was too strong, too wild, so he had to let her go, but Andrea was never gonna leave and he knew that. The actor playing him is doing a brilliant job with the character nice guy exterior just seething menace and evil underneath the surface... I can't imagine thats an easy thing to pull off, but he does it well.

Dammit, what the governor did to Rick and Michonne better not happen to Glen and Maggie. Behind Daryl and Michonne they are the reason I watch the show, and they are the only couple I can stand. Glenn needs his hands... and Maggie... As horrible as it is to say, what happened in the comic was horrible, but that was to Michonne, who was strong enough to overcome it. I do not think Maggie is strong enough, and I think if the same thing happens to her, it will shatter her completely. Hopefully the producers learned something from the backlash when it happened in the comics and plan to go a different route for both characters. Something like that isn't really something that needs to be on the show anyway. Yes its a horrible future full of horrible people, but this is still television. When it happened on SOA it was horrible enough, that's not a line that needs to get crossed again on television anytime soon.

Regardless it will be interesting to see how Rick deals with Michonne after the distrust he showed the prisoners, and the recent events that stemmed from that.

Eh, I agree with you but I guess normal in this situation would mean that Andrea is a female that isn't dead? :smt102


That's the new normal, indeed.

I really don't think they will have the Governor go to the same extent in his "interrogation" as he did in the comics. Rick's thing might happen, but I don't think the other will. I think that's still a bridge too far for a basic cable TV show that needs advertisers and a diverse audience. Also, the comic governor was pretty psychotic right off the bat. This Governor is a bit of a sociopath but not really in the same category.

Not familiar with the book events. Is it twisted or something way brutal ?

My guess: the Governor will attempt to rape her, but will be interrupted. That way, the show can still depict him as completely evil without having to depict his evil in full.

Spoiler alert for non-comic readers:

Kirkman said that he regretted the rape in the comic because of all the hatemail he got accusing him of being racist, sexist etc. He said if he got the chance to do it again he would have had Glenn be the one who was raped. Because it's not sexist when it happens to male characters or Asians, apparently.


I seriously hope they don't pussy out of this, though. I really dislike them fleshing out the Governor's character like this. He should just be an evil bastard from scene 1, IMO.

I like the Governor in the show.

I like that he's not just a caricature. He was great in the comics, but a show is different. You're given more room than 22 pages an issue to work with, and characters have more room to grow.

By all accounts, he will still become the prick we love to hate from the books.. we're just meeting him at an earlier point in his personal journey. I like that we get to see him devolving into an evil bastard, and losing all pretentions of being a good guy.

I hope so. They could do with getting a move on, though.

It's a 16 episode season. I'm fine with the pacing, especially considering how long the prison arc was in the book.

The governor keeps a bunch of zombie heads in fishtanks in his house, he had a group of soldiers murdered, he tried to have Michonne murdered, he has kidnapped Glenn and Maggie and is lying to Andrea about it, holds gladiator fights with zombies, and he keeps his daughter alive as a zombie in secret... how is he not evil and crazy enough?
