Better late than never, hopefully. Sorry I'm so far behind. Thanksgiving week, and all.
So, about The Governor:
--I wouldn't have let The Governor live, never mind join the group. He's what Caesar said about Cassius: He's got the mean and hungry look. Such men are dangerous.
--Many people have said enough with The Governor.
--So someone let the army people turn while tied to a tree or a chair, and then cut off their heads, but then kept the heads "alive?" Now that's morbid, man.
--Martinez is bitter. If you're going to rag on The Governor the whole time, why keep him alive? So you can rag on him all the time?
--The Governor will not be led, or ordered around.
--I would not have made The Governor my golf caddy and then turned my back on him.
--This episode reminds me of a point made last week: Brian / The Governor = Anakin / Darth Vader. On a less iconic scale, of course.
--In case you missed it, Norman Reedus (Daryl) misses the characters of Shane, Andrea, Dale and Sophia, in that order.
--I'm surprised to see Shane #1. He annoyed me tremendously, and he was stuck in that Rick, Shane, Lori triangle that was going nowhere, that he was always going to lose. Plus he had a lot of personal jealousy to boot. He was the one who saved Rick in the hospital, after all.
--Though Shane could have been the series-long antagonist that apparently The Governor will be, instead. Shane could've been as Good Guy before the Zombie Apocalypse brought out his Dark Side as The Governor is.
--The other surprise: Lori wasn't on that list. What issue did Daryl have with her? (Or that Norman Reedus had with Sarah Wayne Callies?)
--The Governor's got daddy issues.
--You had to know he'd take over somewhere, sometime soon, just to attack the prison again. Though the image of the zombie forever reaching for the lake's surface was a brutal, but nice, touch.
