“Is it too much to ask to meet someone normal?” -Mich (and also me after every date I go on)
Back in East Berlin, Gov. calls on Andrea and says the speech she gave was exactly what the people needed to hear, and her oral prowess (winkwink) may just be the perfect balance to his hate mongering and Hunger Games-like mentality. The yin to his yang. The Eva to his Adolf. The Anne Boleyn to his Henry. The Uday to his Saddam. The Kim Jong-Un to his Kim Jong-Il. The Angelina to his Brad.
Gov. also says as long as the Rickettes over at Shawshank leave them alone, it’s all good in the ‘hood.
I’m a regular Fred Rogers. Now let’s bake a cake filled with kind thoughts and hand grenades.
A-dawg wants to visit her friends at Shawshank. Gov. says to do what she has to do, but boohoos that he screwed things up and is no longer fit to lead. Now clearly he’s installing some type of puppet regime, and you’d think even someone of Andrea’s mental caliber could grasp this. Wasn’t she a lawyer pre-apocalypse (a human rights attorney at that!!). How is she still not finding any of this even like 3% odd?
Alas, Andrea thinks she’s received the secret key to STD (Secret Temple of Douchebaggery), and as alert commenter ohralphie pointed out, she’s got a bit of an Evita Peron complex happening. So she continues to take Gov. at his word.
Welcome to STD. In all senses of the word. And by that I mean you might want to get an Rx for Valtrex.
Now finally, some Dixon action! Daryl and Merle are in the woods, just passing the time until they find an animal to eat for dinner. Daryl suggests finding a house to raid and Merle shoots the idea down, likening it to looting. Merle is nothing if not a law abiding citizen.
Daryl says a return to Shawshank might not be the worst idea, but Merle is convinced everyone at the ‘Shank is dead — due to his position in STD (membership is still valid through the end of the month), he knows Gov. is crazy as fuck and will most def attack.
At Shawshank, Glenn tries to determine where/how Tyrese’s group entered the prison. You recall one whole side of Shawshank has gigantic arrows and ENTER HERE neon signs, and really stands out among the scarred earth like a beacon welcoming walkers and governors alike.
Michonne informs the Rickettes about Gov’s fishtanks full of heads and assures them he’s coming for them. FINALLY, MICH!!! Speak more, I need to know everything about you RIGHT NOW!!!!!
“No. I’m rationing my lines so I don’t get killed off. Not speaking again til season 5, episode 16.”
