    I can't wait for the scene where Andrea kills the Governor - That will be awesome.

    This doesn't give anything away, but it's from The Talking Dead so I will spoilerize it. It's just behind the scenes info.

    The other guy did not care for that scene because he got hit in the head twice by a rubber knife while filming it!

    The only thing about the prison is the huge area of farmland fenced in. More than you're likely to find most places. The inside could be made more comfortable pretty easily.

    I don't think Merle is a double agent, but even if he was, how could he have gotten a report back to the Gov? I doubt if they let him go out alone.

    I kept getting nervous about the gun under the table, and so didn't enjoy the scenes where the others were off on their own like I should have. I wanted them to get back there and guard Rick. And Daryl kept shooting his weapons--arrows, his knife, and I never saw him get them back. It was cool, tho.

    I like the moat idea. I'm totally stealing that in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse - hope you don't mind.

    That was very cool. I'd love to have seen the outtakes for that scene.

    The face off between Rick and the Governor was just a pretext to get the other characters standing outside to bond a bit. That will be the ultimate downfall of the Governor, IMO.

    I predict that nobody in particular will get the killing blow on the Governor. He's get eaten by zombies.

    Someone should start a pool for betting on various ways the Governor will get it in the end. :)

    I didn't have the heart to tell her he's already been signed to another season

    This right there.

    I'm glad Rick didn't buy the "turn over Michonne and all will be well" BS. I was shouting at the TV - "he will slaughter all of you" before he revealed that plan to Milton.

    Daryl is too sexy -- even when he smokes (and I hate smoking).

    The Merle - Michonne interplay was a giggle.. As if she'd ever get on his side.

    I thought at the end he was still thinking about it, as it might be their only hope. He told Hershel so Hershel would try to talk him out of turning Michonne over, then they both went silent.

    Normally I would be happy about that, but in this show whenever someone seems happy I always get very nervous that they're about to die, or something. I couldn't enjoy that scene at all.

    IMO this is the most likely scenario at this point.

    They made it quite clear that no one told Andrea about Maggie, as some of us suspected a couple of weeks ago. I reiterate my eye-roll and general thumbs-down at the writers on this point.

    Lauren Cohan was born in the US but raised in England, which is why she speaks with a Brit accent.

    Speaking of Brit accents, I think it would have been hilarious if Andrew Lincoln and David Morrisey played a prank on the crew and sat down to film the summit scene and then started speaking in their real accents and being all nice to each other, "How have you been, ol' chap? Fancy a spot of tea?"

    Question about something mentioned on TD, no spoiler info:

    Hardwick says he doesn't know what's going to happen and that he watches each episode for the first time the day it airs. So then how has he pre-taped those interviews with Andrew Lincoln talking specifics about the episode that just aired?

    Herndon,...
    So many hidden guns, so little action. :rolleyes:

    On the one hand, I applaud the director/writers for showing us Herschel and the Govenor's hidden guns right away. It helped maintain the tension in what was otherwise a pretty boring hour-long negotiation. On the other hand, nothing happened with those hidden guns. Zzzzz...

    I like how last week's episode played into this episode by establishing Michone as "one of them". Made the negotiations more meaningful and Rick's (apparent) decision more appropriate.

    I also liked how the characters paired up in this episode... the two leaders, the two warriors and the two intellectual "right-hand men". Loved Durll and the other henchman guy smoking after killing zombies... like having a post-sex cigarette. :D And I agree with the person that posted how the Gov. screwed up by allowing "bonding time" between his men and Rick's. That (may) come back to screw him in the future.

    The post-negotiation return-to-both-camps scene was great... how it established the tension of the coming battle with the music and minimal dialog up until the two leaders pronounced their real intentions. The excitement, drama and dread were all at a high level... I wish the episode had ended then. But no... we then get a 5 minute boring conversation between Rick and Herschel about doubts and alternatives. Buzz kill. :(

    Andrea is eyes-wide-open now. No more excuses. So let's see what happens... does she prove herself? I'm curious.

    Glenn must have found the magic cure pills that Carl took post-surgery back in season two. Wasn't his face still mush last episode? I didn't think that much time had passed between then and now. :confused: (but I guess it's hard to say for sure...)

    I'm hoping Maggie and Glenn have some kind of birth control. The show doesn't need any more babies. :rolleyes:

    I actually ffwd'd through the second half of this scene since I expected one of their heads to be blown off.
