This is the true story of seven strangers. Picked to live in an apocalypse…
Having said all that…Andrea has the luxury of arranging her hair into pin-up curls while the rest of the world goes to hell in a handbasket. She looks at a photo of the governor’s family, whose walker-fied bodies are somewhere on the premises. You’ll recall Gov. brushing his daughter’s hair a few episodes ago? It was a remarkably silky for someone who is undead. Herbal Essences, you think? My hair’s been brittle as hell lately due to lack of humidity in my area.
Gov. enters and Andrea says she’ll be helping Milton cremate Mr. Coleman’s body. Nice way to stay out of the picture for a few hours. I still wish the outcome of the Coleman experiment had been different. I just think the possibility that walkers can retain SOME human qualities is worth exploring. He notes that Woodbury must be starting to grow on Andrea. Well, she’s prancing around in thongs and getting laid on the reg, so I’d say you’re probably right on that count.
….who’s the biggest asshole of them all?
Once he gets rid of Andrea, who seems to be entering stage-5 clinger territory, Gov. turns on the CD player and opens a cage. He calls for Penny.
Sorry, wrong show.
Penny comes out in a straightjacket and chains, so Gov’s certainly taken the role of overprotective dad to the next level. He unties her from her straight jacket and sings to her in a voice that would elicit hilarious commentary from Simon Cowell. The song DOES seem to calm her though, people, and I like the potential here! Or, she just spotted the bowl of raw chicken meat sitting by the governor’s chair. Sigh.
Gov. Grounded in Reality screams at her to look at him and returns her to her cage. Now we know he is not only an individual who needs a serious Lisbeth Salander-style ass whooping, but an immediate, maximum strength dose of reality as well. Seeing this play out only makes me think less of the Governor, by the way.
Meanwhile: Maggie tells Glenn she was not raped, but that having spent so much time trying to avoid having your brains eaten, you forget about your everyday sociopaths. Does Hallmark make a reminder card for that? The walker Glenn killed with his chair (badass creativity points: 4 out of 5 brains) is laying on the floor. Glenn breaks his arm and pulls out a bone to use as a makeshift weapon and/or wishbone.
Glenn has become quite the badass. He’s adapted well to the current situation while still maintaining his humanity. Props to you, Glenn.
The Rickettes are still standing motionless outside the Woodbury city limits. They look unsure about what to do next, and also like they’ve been standing there staring for the entire week it’s been since the last episode aired. As I mentioned in my last recap, MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE COME UP WITH A PLAN BEFORE YOU LEFT THE PRISON.
