    Lot's of good stuff in that preview.

    It appears someone "smokes" the arena where the towns-folk of Woodbury have gathered. It wouldn't be a stretch to think at least Daryl escapes.

    We also see that Andrea goes back to the prison. Where are her loyalties? We'll see. :)

    Obviously there's a big dust-up at the prison at some point involving all 3 groups.

    Would it surprise anyone if Daryl actually allowed himself to be captured? Just to see his brother?

    May not be that much of a stretch.

    Really enjoying this season so far. Damn midseason break!

    My only quibble is that I don't think the show has done a good job of conveying how bad the Governor is (although I think the actor is doing a great job). Or what Michonne's vendatta is against him. Reading the comics I understand, but if I didn't read the comics, I'd have a hard time understanding what's so wrong with the Governor. Other than the zombie heads that is...

    I thought murdering the last survivor from the helicopter crash (and keeping his head) combined with the ambushing of the National Guard unit pretty much colored the governor as a "bad guy".

    Michonne knows/knew what he was capable of... She saw the fresh blood on the .50 cal machine gun that one of the National Guardsman was standing by. She knew what went down-- that the guard unit wasn't wiped out by the undead.

    The Governor in the comic was more over the top. The one on the TV show, more cunning and sneaky about it, i.e. being evil.

    Yes, the heads are definately the one sign of his more cunning/evil side, but for the other stuff... is it really that different than what Rick has done?

    But I don't see much difference between what the Governor has done as opposed to Rick. Other than the Governor has been far more successful at establishing a safe haven for his group.

    The Governor taking down the National Guard any different than Rick quick drawing the two people in the bar? Both were threats to their leadership, and both were eliminated.

    And Michonne knowing he is bad is one thing, I don't think the show did enough to establish her hatred for him, and why she decided to camp out at his place to kill him. Solely off the show, what's her motivation for that?

    It's just a minor quibble, but I wish the show had established more of Michonne's character and why she hates the Governor.

    It's not a graphic novel, those would be the comics. Rise of the Governor is an actual novel, really well done. It's about how the governor and his family/friends dealt with the outbreak early on and came to arrive at Woodbury.

    Huge difference between what Rick did with the two guys and what the governor did with the National Guard unit.

    The guys in the bar were in the act of pulling their weapons when Rick shot them. Rick's intent wasn't to kill them from the get-go.

    Same thing with the prisoners.

    Same thing with Shane.

    Rick killed when he felt threatened physically.

    The governor fully intended to wipe out the National Guard unit... No prisoners, regardless of how friendly or non-friendly the Guard unit actually was. They were dead. He level of evil was established right there.

    I don't think Rick would have killed anyone if they had simply not threatened him.

    Noway Rick and Governor are alike. They kill for different reasons. Governor is more on offensive and Rick is more on defensive, last resort to kill undeads, Rick doesn't want to kill undeads until he is certain that undeads has bad intentions against his group. Whereas Governor will kill first in order to get what he want from them, completely different.

    Looks like Merle also escapes the coliseum with Daryl. Glenn's reaction in the video gives it away. Probably also why carl tells him to stop being the leader and Hershel yells at him.

    I expect Daryl to eventually shoot his brother in the face, but I hope they don't drag that part out too long. We already had the Rick/Shane thing last season.

    I hope they don't go the "Merle is a plant for the governor" route...that would be too simplistic imo. However, it would at least give Daryl enough of a reason to end it once and for all.

    Same! He's a lot easier to like now that he's been forced to take his actions seriously and not do dumb things. Obviously not the best circumstances for a boy to become a man, but well done, kid.
