Glenn wants to sneak back into E. Berlin and kill the Gov. because the events surrounding the group’s first trip to E. Berlin went so magnificently. Michonne is DTA (down to assassinate), but Hershel is not having this, citing the most valid of all reasons: Rick wouldn’t like it. Well, Rick is making out with the ghost of someone he didn’t even like, so the importof his “say” has been become slightly less meaningful.
Glenn says it’s time to stop pretending their lives are a jaunt through a dewy meadow, and to get busy living or get busy dying. Being in Shawshank really brings out one’s inner Morgan Freeman. Also, as Glenn points out, the Rickettes only survived a winter on the road due to Hershel being a non-amputee, Daryl not being AWOL, and Judith Light still bring in utero. Truth, but y’all did have to deal with Lori back then. It’s a give and take.
In East Berlin, Gov. pays Milton a visit. I am convinced Milton knows something about the origins of this virus (and perhaps even worked for the people responsible for creating it). Recall his claim several episodes ago that he remained ignorant of the apocalypse for some time due to the fact he had no family and “telecommuted” to work or some load of crap. Maybe this is wishful thinking on my part because a subplot on the virus origins is something I’m craving more than a walker craves fresh intestine.
Anyway, like a true nerd, Milton is listening to wind or some shit on headphones. Is this the kind of research the East Berliners’ taxpayer dollars are funding?
No taxation without representation!
Gov. feeds Milty some bullshit about how he’s invaluable and therefore sincerely hopes he’ll remain in E. Berlin. Well, Milton doesn’t seem like someone who could last 15 seconds in a large city during normal times, let alone out in a post-apocalyptic world. So yeah…probably don’t need to do much arm-twisting there.
Gov. counts on Milty for expertise and friendship. Heartwarming. He also counts on Martinez (fills STD’s minority quota — tax breaks, what can I say) and knows Martinez would take a bullet for him. WOULD MILTON? Milton says yes. Not so fast, Milt. Before you get the coveted other half of Gov’s BFF necklace, would Milton spy on Andrea for STD? Also yes. Now that the Gov. has established control of all relevant parties, Milton is free to go back to his essential personnel duties of listening to static.
Martinez is MIA from his post at the Berlin Wall. Andrea interrogates a random hot chick who claims not to know anything except that Andrea’s a big fat hoe. Anrdrea chases down Milton, wanting to know where her man went. Typical needy girlfriend interrogating her boyfriend’s friends. And thinking she’s well liked enough to actually get the 411.
Milton really cannot pull off nonchalance, hemming and hawing about Gov’s whereabouts. Milton is totally Rick Moranis from “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” and this whole apocalypse is just a dorkalicious, mad science experience gone terribly, terribly wrong. Which happens to be exactly what I think is going to cause a real apocalypse sooner or later but I digress…
