Merle found kindred spirits.
That Governor is a bad dude.
I'm expecting a lot of complaints about the pace of the episode being too slow, but I liked it.
At the end I was expecting the Governor to have his wife and kid chained up as zombies in that room. He so fascinated by how to make them docile and the spark of who they were, then we got the purposeful camera pause on the family photo.
I figured he had the family in that room as well.
Comic book and potential show spoilers:
I was stoked the heads were there, thought they might leave that out.
Now if they stay true to the comics we'll be meeting his daughter in a *very* disturbing way soon.
The pace was just fine. Especially after last week's. I have not read the comics, but I knew this guy is nothing but bad news.
Andrea looks smitten. Michonne at least knows better. And the look on his face after he finished off that soldier + the trophy room, leads me to believe he was some kinda Dexter in his previous life.
I was waiting for something but didn't know what for sure. The room actually looks like it was built into the house...I mean it looked like plywood instead of real walls like the rest of the place.
What do the heads represent? I saw the pilot in there but why?
The scientist guy talking about the "pet zombies" was neat. He would be handy to have around.
Merle was great to see again. I hope he doesn't swing Daryl over to his side though.
Enjoyed the episode. Still don't get it why the Governor killed the soldiers. They could have been useful. There is no longer a chain of command for them to follow very far, so they could very well take orders from a "Governor".
They would be a threat to his control maybe?
I noticed a lot of women in his town. The population seems to consist mostly of women, children, and Governor-goons.
That's what I thought as well. Can't have any trained soldiers roaming around town possibly figuring out the governor isn't the good guy he claims to be.
Yeah, I guess. That's the logical explanation from the story-telling p.o.v. but my practical side still thinks they would have been more useful alive than dead. Of course the Governor appears to have quite a few things to hide, so the fewer eyes the better.
I definitely thought there was something in the tea, but it must have been subtle.
Interesting how they made the Governor into this charismatic leader. I don't read the comics but I've seen some of the images, and this is quite a different look to the character.
I don't think they showed his family in the scene with the heads in tanks, so I have a feeling he's keeping them around like Hershel did in the barn.
Because he respects their humanity and hopes to find a cure for them?
I was a little surprised that none of them reacted at all during the slaughter. You'd think SOMEBODY would have dove for cover, returned fire, something, instead of just standing there during the time it took the Governators to kill them...
By the looks of the heavy equipment(semi) they were not an infantry unit. By now they would be skilled at killing zombies but the Lt. said they were holed up in a base so I don't think they've had much experience fighting things that shoot back.
Yeah, but normal human reaction, much less anybody with any military training, would be to hit the ground when bullets start flying. And as far as I can tell, not one of them did. Not one of them did ANYTHING.
I think this is another example of something that seems to happen on this show, where a scene is written, and then when they go to film it the location doesn't really make a good setting for the scene as written...but they shoot it anyway. The zombie sneaking up on Rick in the middle of an open field is a classic example...presumably, the writer wasn't picturing an open field. In this case, I suspect the writer was imagining things being in much closer quarters, where an ambush might be feasible. But in that wide open space, it just looked silly, and the soldiers looked monumentally stupid.
I was just glad to have an episode without Lori.
The most interesting thing I learned that zombies CAN starve which should give survivors hope that eventually all the zombies could starve and "die" and the epidemic might end.
I also have to wonder if anybody else other than the Governor's goons know what a bad guy he is. If you were to ask a local what they thought of him, what would they say?
Or maybe that's ask them what they think of him where he can't learn of their answer. They may just smile and tell you how wonderful the place is because he or goons are around.
Yeah...I do wonder if they live in fear of him but put up with it based on their living situation.
I also wonder who that girl in his bed was....and if she wanted to be there.
