First of all, let me just say: Squeeeeeee for the Governor! I was so excited to see him this week; I couldn’t wait to see what he had been up to. Until I saw what he had been up to. This episode honestly has me seething right now.  Obviously, I wanted to have some Governor story lines and arcs; but an entire episode dedicated entirely to his months on the road and finding a cozy little setup with a small family in a depressing apartment? No. I’m sorry; just, no. First of all; we were given no updates on the prison crew, at all. How is Glenn? Did he make it through the flu? What about Sasha and Lizzie? I feel a little cheated that we weren’t given any information about the prisoners, and I’m not happy that I’m going to have to wait seven days to find out how the main unit is faring. Furthermore, I don’t enjoy this new version of The Governor. I know he’s all mea culpa blah blah blah, but I want the Governor of old. The charming, manipulative, cold-hearted killer that laid waste to basically the entire population of Woodbury because they questioned his authority. I’m being completely honest when I say that absolutely nothing of consequence took place in this episode, until the very last scene; in which The Governor and the little girl, Megan, fall into what appears to be a grave. The Governor clears the walkers that are in the grave and has a tender moment with the little girl. In the background, we can hear machine guns, but see nothing but The Governor and the little girl; and then hear something along the lines of “no fucking way,” only to find one of The Governor’s former henchmen standing above him with an assault weapon aimed at his head. Martinez witnessed The Governor’s breakdown with his own eyes. Apparently sometime after the massacre, they parted ways; only to be reunited now. Life’s a bitch, ain’t it? And honestly, that’s about it. The whole episode is really about The Governor getting to know this family; which consists of two sisters, Megan (one of the sisters’ little girl), and their Dad/Grandpa who is dying from stage 4 lung cancer. He goes and runs errands for them, and after the Dad dies, they go with him on his hunt for the next spot to settle in. He even bangs one of the sisters. There is certainly something about this dude that women flock to. I suppose he does have that je ne sais qua that is alluring to some. So, yeah. That’s it. I’m not going to bore you with a recap of all of the filler. It’s quite unnecessary. The Governor was nice and boring, and I didn’t like it. But even more than that; I’m most bummed about getting absolutely no face time with the prison group. I’d really like to know that Glenn and Maggie will see another day of ridiculously cute zombie apocalypse romance; and whether Lizzie will live to be a weird little kid for at least a while longer. Here’s hoping that next week we can back on track; and that The Governor can find it within himself to be the diabolical fiend we all know and love. Also? We best find out if our prison peeps are breathing or not. Our loyalty has earned us that much! [polldaddy poll=7570956] [polldaddy poll=7570958]
