Tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead marked the second and final standalone installment for The Governor, (David Morrissey) and like last week, the death toll was relatively low. Sure, “Brian” had to kill two walkers right off the bat (a mother daughter duo that no doubt reminded him of Penny and his own wife) but even Martinez noted that he was a “changed man.” Thanks to his new family, The Gov. could kill again in order to protect them.
Martinez was right, The Governor was a changed man, and after Martinez had a few too many drinks and started talking about Woodbury, the former pals went on top of the RV to hit some golf balls, because, why not?
Just as Martinez was telling The Governor he could lead again and “wear the crown”, The Gov. struck him from behind with a club, pushed him off the RV, and dragged him to a nearby walker pit where they feasted on him head first.
Later, our one-eyed wonder went out on a supply run with new characters, a pair of brothers named Mitch and Pete. Mitch wanted to take the camp, but leader Pete refused. When they returned later everyone at the camp (except for an old man that Mitch later killed) was dead, the supplies gone.
After attempting to flee their home camp with his new family, “Brian” realized he had nowhere better to go and came back. He killed adorable Pete (RIP, buddy) and convinced Mitch to join his team, but he still wasn’t pleased with the new abode.
The Gov. killed his final walker to save Meghan, who had stumbled upon the undead during a game of tag. After he killed the walker that almost bit Meghan, The Gov. knew he needed to take the prison to protect his new group. The Gov. and Team Prison face off in next week’s mid-season finale and we know there will be plenty of death then. Are you prepared? Tell us what you think below!
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
