I like the fact that we've gotten a full dose of the Governor's character and why he back the person he is. Heck, we know more about him than we do any other character, including Rick.

This. Now I wouldn't say the last 2 episodes have been perfect, but it feels like there has been more emphasis on character development in this season than in the first 3 combined. Was never that high on Walking Dead in general, felt like somewhat of a waste of potential, but this season is a pleasant surprise. Looks like the showrunners have a clear direction, which is something I didn't really notice with seasons 1-3. Just didn't care about any of the characters, so any attempt to focus on persons rather than gimmicks is a good thing. The show grows on me, let's see where they're going with this arc from here.

The thing is if he just killed my brother I would want revenge.

He killed dude from Oz brother and dude just bitched up.

Also that lake is gonna be his trophy room now

I'm not the biggest fan of the Governer but I do agree with the direction of character development. I knew the Governer was going to come back with a new group and I like the fact that the show took the time to build on this story instead of him just showing up at the prison with a new gang. I actually liked the 2nd Governer episode better than the first.

Kind of hope the Governor kills off the prison group.

Holy shit what the ****ing ****. Those two little girls became my favorite characters all of a sudden. Taking out the two approaching gunmen with a single shot each. So basically only one main character died. Judith is still alive, has to be. Probably with Carol. Carol probably got her and got on the bus, driving away.

Every person I see the Gov kill reminds me of how Rick coulda ended it all in that meeting or Michonne coulda ended it but they both chose not to. Hated seeing you know who get killed but you knew it was coming.

Once again Carl had the right idea about ending it again, he had a clear shot and I think he woulda popped the Gov honestly.

Carl turned into one mentally strong dude, farcry from the kid he once was, Shane taught him well, Rick, too.

Ah. I'm curious to see how the 2nd half of the season goes. I have a feeling we'll have a new setting for season 5(of which the show has already been renewed).

What a great mid-season finale. A lot of things happened that I was hoping for.

At the end of the episode the survivors are all splintered into separate groups.....Glenn and co. on the bus. Maggie, Sasha, and Bob together. Rick and Carl together. Tyrese chased after the little girls. Michonne disappeared on her own after owning TG. Darryl and Beth ran off together. I'm betting the second half of the season will be the aftermath and the separate groups trying to survive and find each other.
