OMFG does this dude always take 12 years to make a decision?
Just be thankful you weren’t here for the Hershel’s farm/barn/missing persons search era, Mich.
Merle and Gov. Picture of Mental Health are checking out a map of the prison. The Governor does not want the townspeople moving in there, because they love this town because it’s a throwback. They shouldn’t have to live in a cell, because reality < nostalgia. Gov. wants to take out the group and let the biters move back into the prison. Dude, why do you care?
Can’t we all just get along? Nice to know that petty, unfounded rivalries still rule the day. Gov. wants Merle to make Daryl their inside man. They’ll go into the prison raising the white flag just like they did when they took out the national guard! Because Gov. is so terribly resourceful and clever! He assures Merle nothing will happen to Daryl in the same unconvincing tone my parents used when they half-heartedly promised me Santa was real after I overheard kids on the bus say he wasn’t.
Gov. also wants Merle to kill Glenn and Maggie, because the longer they are in Woodbury, the greater chance Andrea will find out. He wants Merle to take them to the “screamer pit.” Sounds delightful. Does a) Merle look hesitant? Or b) am I still just wishing way too hard for his redemption?
Michonne shows the Rickettes where she was “questioned.” Glenn and Maggie are not there. Random prisoner/new member of the Rickettes suggests Michonne has led them into a trap. First of all, leave my woman out of this. She never said she knew for sure where Glenn/Maggie were locked up. Perhaps if you had roundtabled this shitty plan for more than .06 seconds, you would have had more ideas about where to look. Second of all, random prisoner has now reached his speaking line quota for the episode, and possibly the entire series. That’s what, like 5 lines in 4 weeks? In the words of Lucille Bluth, this does not bode well.
A townsperson walks in, saying he saw them all moving from the outside. Rick ties him up, demanding to know where his peeps are at. It’s clear this dude is not exactly a member of the Secret Temple of Douchebaggery (STD). The governor only reveals what a crazed asshole he is on a need-to-know basis.
For those of us wondering where Axel (the other random prisoner who recently joined the Rickettes) was, he did remain at the prison. He weighs about 12 lbs soaking wet, so I stand corrected re: my comment last week regarding Rick’s stupidity in not leaving any muscle behind to protect the prison and his NEWBORN BABY.
Axel is talking with Hershel’s blonde daughter who has never been memorable enough for me to learn her name. Is she the one who wanted to kill herself at the farm, or was that the other blonde? I think I was doing a crossword puzzle during that particular scene, so my apologies. Anyway, Axel finds it “interesting” that she’s 17. Is Chris Hansen still alive and kicking in this apocalypse?
