First, I have a question about the truck and the criticism that Andrea didn't slash its tires. Are we really supposed to believe that the Gov caught up to her with the truck? There is no scene showing him using it again. And he sneaks up behind Andrea seconds after she emerges from a forest, where it would be impossible to drive a truck. So I don't really see this criticism as a fatal blow against the episode or the character.
Let's say he didn't take the truck. This means he had to subdue and carry Andrea back to the truck with fighting off zombies (that were shown to be plentiful) for many miles while being exhausted from his zombie fight. Not very likely imo.

And I have enjoyed them especially because they have deviated from the comic significantly. Above all, the Governor in the show is much more interesting and frightening than the Governor in the comic. And so I am glad that he will be back next season. My view is that his two flunkies stuck by him, because they are clueless losers who have developed a sick, twisted, cultlike dependency on him.
"frightening"? I wouldn't go that far. More psycho, maybe more dangerous, but not frightening. I'm sure Rick and the gang aren't shivering in fear for someone they absolutely now know needs to be put down.
As for Tweedle Dum & Dee. That wasn't love that got them into the Gov's truck, it wasn't fear. It was confusion. Besides - I figure with Lori and Andrea dead, somebody has to step up and be the moronic character on the show. Bout time it was a male (times 2 to make it even with the ladies).
