I've said it here dozens of times I really hate the Governor character. However, I really liked this episode. This show always works better when they go out into the world. Plus they finally found a way to make an episode where Rick and the gang aren't bickering at each other.

I didn't like the very end when he randomly ran into his old crew, because I think it will lead back to more of the same. That aside I can now say that for one week I was a fan of the Governor.

I waited the entire episode for him to crack and steal the girl as Penny v.2, but when he said "I'm a pirate," he even charmed me. The Lovely Mrs. Tracker was agog that they didn't take two cars when leaving the apartment building, and that was before the truck broke down.

The actor, John Morrisey, did a great job explaining the Governor's notions for this episode on Talking Dead, especially the deal with the Spaghetti-Os.

David Morrissey?

You all must be having a case of the Mondays.

Leave it to The Governor to find one of the remaining pockets of pretty ladies left in The Walking Dead World. He's still got it!

Speaking of pretty ladies, my friend Juliana Harkavy debuts on the show next week. She's in the Next Week preview clip in the car with The Governor.

Pretty good episode. Did not care for the montage. It did it's job of bringing us up to speed on the character but I didn't like the voice over during it.

Is the Governor's real name actually Brian or was that a lie?

It'll be interesting to see what leads him back to the prison. Right now he seems content to have a new family.

I feel that the brutality of the way the Governor dispenses the walkers really shows that he's a sociopath and not just in it for survival. Sure they're monsters and all but does anyone else that we've seen take them out like that?

On Talking Dead, John David Steven Patrick Sishkabob Morrissey said the Governor took his new name from the barn during that opening montage.

I saw his trench warfare as Hulking out to save the pseudo-Penny. He's that desperate to keep her alive.

I think that the Governor is completely mad, which means that you never know exactly what he's going to do. I was convinced that he was going to wind up killing all three of the girls by the end of the episode. Putting him in charge of them instead is an interesting direction for the character, and I liked the symbolic callback with the little girl and what he said about his daughter last season - "If she saw me now, she'd be terrified. But she might still be alive."

I see people online crapping all over this episode, saying it was hella boring. Also see a lot of hate for the Governor, as well as pre-emptive hate for next week's episode, which appears Governor-centric as well. I don't understand. I thought the Governor is a pretty beloved character. Personally, I'm loving the deep dive on his missing time and the character development.

Oh, people complain when there's not a full-blown blood letting every week. People have also complained about the gratuitousness of some of the violence, so whatevs...

I didn't see the redemption storyline coming - and it's really jarring to sympathize with a man who spent a few hours of last season setting up a torture room, but this episode was really terrific in turning that character around into someone for whom to cheer - at least for now, as I have a feeling the good times aren't gonna last.

I do see him teaming up with Rick at some point, though. With the megazombie horde out there, they're going to need all the help they can get.

I've been really surprised that no one has mentioned the plot line showing up from the novels: That wasn't the governor in the picture of his "daughter" that he burned.

Also from the book: Brian is his actual real name (but not the last name he used).

Are we sure that's not him?

I loved this episode. Anytime they can get out of the prison and away from the main characters is a plus for me. I hope they do this with others and show their back stories.

I really thought he was going to kill all of them but was happy he did not. I do think he will do his best to toe the line and stay "good". But once the girl dies, and she will, that will send him back to his evil ways.

And I have to say, that is quite a close shave he had! All that hair, no decent razors or shaving cream and not a nick on him!!

Looking forward to Sunday.
