I really don't like this dudes character. A whole hour about a guy that isn't the main character.

I wish they would've just stuck to the comic book.

People must really like the governor. That's the only reason I can see for them to prolong this arc.

This dude supposed to be some kinda "badass" but he can't even handle a few walkers on his own


I feel like we have to be watching different shows. Dude goes through zombies like the ****ing Juggernaut.

You miss him trapped in that factory by Andrea in a swarm and make it out? Or last night in a hole beating them to death with his bare hands? Guy literally punched through a zombies face, ripped anothers throat out, and tore ones head in half with another zombies bone.

But he cant handle walkers on his own? What hes supposed to do fire a Kamahameha?

He and Tyrese have been going through zombies like a firehose through cotton candy.

I think he's referring to the scene where the Governor kind of brushes aside a zombie instead of fighting it and it falls over (before he meets the girls) and also when he is in the retirement home.

I liked this episode. I've been pretty unpleased with The Governor since his introduction as well, but this was far more compelling than anything they've done with him up to now. Adding a sympathetic angle with this family helps a lot.

I will say this though, there are some storytelling flaws here in not resolving the Rick Darryl thing over what's her name more quickly. Especially if they go another whole week following the gov., although I can't believe they'd let that happen. They have to address it next week.

Again, this thread never fails to disappoint..

An issue doesn't get resolved within 2 minutes? Show sucks
The guy who is clearly without much strength at all, chooses to sneak by a walker instead of fight? Show sucks

Unfortunately, a TV show can't be balls to the walls action for 1 hour, there are other important aspects of storytelling that need to occur.

Say what? Did you not see him wipe out 4-5 of them with his bare fvcking hands after he had fallen into that pit? That's legitimately one of the most badass instances on this show.

I liked the episode and them giving a back log of what happened to The Governor. I'm curious why he comes back to the prison. To get his revenge?

I understand that, I'm just wondering why it leads up to that. He seemingly found something more to live for. He was in the dump for months it looked like wandering around with no purpose to live. Then he finds that family and a girl that reminds him of his little girl.

I like how he's the villain, but they gave a logical reason of why he's a villain. He went insane because he lost his family and.

This. I guess it seemed like that cause he was still in his "depression" state.

When he was in the pit and had to protect the girl he did his thing but Everyone from rick's main group seems like they can handle themselves better against zombies than the governor(probably because they was always on the run)

Also I really want them to just kill the Governor off and move on from the prison.

I don't want them to drag this out for another season.

Governor should've been resolved last season

Well, maybe he is thinking that in addition to revenge, he thinks he can make the prison a place for his new group.

Also, anybody think he will kill his former sidekick? Commercial looks like the sidekick wants to be in charge, so the Governor will probably kill him to be the leader again. I'm also curious how he covers his lie about his name.

gives him a reason to live for. I doubt he changes his ways, but no one would blame him if he did.

I don't watch the commercials/previews for any next show. I found it last season when I didn't watch the previews for the next episode it made watching the new episode so much more enjoyable when you have no idea what's going to happen.

Does the ineptitude of the zombies this season bother anyone else? Seems like first 2 seasons they are quick and 2 or 3 of could take down anyone. Now this season the Governer falls into a pit of 4 of them and manages to punch one's face in without getting bit or the little girl getting attack

Yeah they are a bit too weak. I mean people are able to put knives through skulls pretty easily. It might work on zombies that are months old and rotten, but it'd be pretty hard to stab a new zombie straight through the forehead with a single strike.
