    This is by far the worst Walking dead episode so far, say no more.

    Slowest. Episode. Ever. It wasn't even that tense for what it contained. Rick and the Governor met and talked about not resolving their issue. Rick kinda-maybe took the higher ground just long enough to go home and distract the others while it made plans to dance exactly as the Governor told him to. The show has painted a wonderful scene in which the only way out is to kill, but they're taking far too long to get down to the dirty work now. And I have this sinking suspicion that now Milton's grown on me, he's destined to die. All my favorite characters have that habit. Time will tell.moreless

    Not just your usual zombie tale.

    A bit irrational to believe the two would agree to a meeting like this, but I thought it was a refreshing break from the two arguing with their own people to argue with each other.



    I just cannot buy into the current direction of the show.

    The mighty honorable Rick who still respects the gov who he would have killed 10 times over if he had a chance during the attack on WB, who knows what a sociopath he is, who has it confirmed by other trustworthy people, is at the low point of my sympathy for him. Been there since the hitchhiker.

    To me, trust is an invaluable currency in their situation. what value is left in their group if they give someone like Michonne away to be surely killed based on the slim chance to not get attacked afterwards? It's so preposterous to even think about it. Everything would crumble away, no binding left, no oh-so-slight-security.

    And btw, I hate the fact that most likely the whole conversation between Rick and Hershel at the end was only to indulge in this pseudo-tension, cliffhanger and so on. I don't like it if these parts of a plot become so blatantly self-contained and uncomprehensible.



    Lastly, stop complaining about the pace or the length of arcs. This simply is Kirkman's style and thus they stay true to it. He was facing the exact same complains often, and especially with the Woodbury arc. Of course, in the novel the whole Michonne thing has a whole other ring to itmoreless
