    He's in the previews... but it's all relating to scenes with Andrea and Michonne... and the Governor.

    I mean, maybe the prison isn't that far, and Merle was "following" them... but, something seems off by that, to me.

    Could be Merle, though. A tease.

    Really dug last night's episode. Finally got to see lots of Michon, the Gov and MERLE. But most importantly, this episode was Rick/Lori-free!

    michonne got a little weary to me yesterday. There was no reason to distrust the Governor, as far as they know, and they both ended up looking like ungrateful B-words.

    They'll end up being right, but it seems like they'd kind of embrace the medical care and peacefulness for once.

    I did like this one better than last week's for sure.
    Hopefully they bridge the gap tween the two parties in next week's epi. Don't wanna see a whole other episode only in the prison again.

    I had the same issue. Maybe it's just Michonne's "instinct". But still, even then she went a little overboard with it IMO.

    Of course they did think the Gov murdered those men in the copter crash. But after he told them about how everyone turns they really had no reason not to trust him, or at least be appreciative.

    I'm thinking it was just meant to reveal what an evil ***** he is. Haven't read the comics though, so maybe there's some other significance.

    Just to show the audience that he is not a good guy, If a person hadn't looked ahead, you could easily believe he was a well-meaning guy, and not a total psychopath.

    Comic governor and TV governor don't match up to me and it did make the aquarium seem out of place.


    What interests me the most at this point is Andrea and what her reaction will be when/if she rejoins the prison characters. She seems bitter about being left. All of that is a major deviation from the comics.

    To me, Michonne's weariness makes sense.

    Aside from Andrea... she's been alone. Why trust outsiders? She's a bit scarred, psychologically-speaking.

    Andrea even mentioned how little she spoke of herself... and they've been together about 8 months.
