      I really dont see Earle choosing the governor over his brother. Oh and Andrea you a such a dumb......

      I just can't wait till next episode! Did u notice that Merle having second thought! it's like he doesn't want to leave but he knows blood is blood! And what is with the governor? I really don't get it! why he is killing outsiders when he can just ask them to join and contribute to the town?!

      The Gov is a control freak that sees outsiders as a threat to his position of power. He's killing off people he thinks can somehow undermine his authority...through dissent, outright overthrow or really for whatever reason he damn well pleases.The show is changing gears this season

      (heh! I didn't mean to post half a thought :$) Anyway, the show is changing gears in the respect that zombies are no longer exclusively public enemy it's a matter of protecting against other walkers AND humans, cause let's face it, humans can be far more dangerous overall than a hungry, massive, shambling horde
