Michonne’s been waiting motionless this entire time when she hears some type of rustling coming from Gov’s private chambers. She busts in without hesitation and stumbles upon the Gov’s heads in a tank. She also finds the cage where Penny is being held captive. Michonne assures Penny it’s going to be okay and COME ON, MICH!!! You’ve got better instincts than this. She unchains her, and even though I know Michonne is a badass x 1 million, I still found this scene to be very intense! Just as she’s about to put Penny out of her misery, Gov. shows up, all “NoooOOOOooOOOOOOOoooOOoo” and fake surrenders.
Gov. begs her not to hurt his little girl, and for the first time he seems .00000000000003% human. Alas, Michonne isn’t buying what he’s selling. Michonne coldly tells him Penny doesn’t have needs and suddenly Penny’s got a sword through her face. [Wouldn't it be awesome is Michonne was, like, a mild-mannered account in her pre-apocalypse life?]
Anyway/oddly enough, the Gov. does not handle this turn of events well. Soon they’re fighting, and he has surprisingly more strength than I would have expected. Michonne ends up with her head rammed through one of the walker tanks. I can’t imagine that’s a smell that’s going to come off your hair/body easily, especially with the soap shortage I’m assuming must be happening by now. Also, the heads are still alive (in the walker sense that they’re still trying to bite). Nastiness!
Michonne goes for some broken glass and stabs Gov. in the eye. I was not expecting that at all, and I have a weird phobia/OCD about eyes so I start freaking out.
I’ve been waiting for Andrea to slut on in, and of course she waltzes through the door with a gun. She’s all melodrama and theatrics as she wails about what Michonne has done. Listen Andrea, we’ve stopped being polite and started getting real. They have their weapons to each other but unfortunately Michonne must still feel some type of loyalty/pity for her dumbass friend and blinks first.
Look what you’ve done! Now I’ll never get laid tonight!
Andrea spots the walker heads, and I don’t think the lightbulb has gone off yet, but it’s possibly starting to flicker. Gov. is hugging his daughter with his eyeball hanging out, and I am trying not to gag. I can take a decent amount of gore, but eye stuff – just no. I have to practically be tied down so someone can get Visine in my eyes. Gov. is sobbing but I’m having trouble mustering any sympathy for a general sociopath such as himself.
Carl brings the new crew into their area at the prison. They’re all still concerned about Zombie Appetizer Gal. Kind of a lost cause at this point, people. Carl says he’ll take care of it, but Tyrese (finally learned someone’s name!) says he’ll do it with his hammer. Wouldn’t a simple headshot be easier?
