The Governor is one fucked up in the head son of a bitch...keeping zombie heads floating in aquariums? And sitting there staring at them? What a sick fuck.

I 100% agree with you on that. Keeping heads in your spare room is pretty sick.

What the actual fuck? I mean I knew he was gonna turn out to be a baddie even without the obvious foreshadowing, but that's some psycho shit. I'm dying to know what the motivation behind that is.

There was a photograph of his family in the last scene. We didn't see his family in the episode. Maybe they got killed by Walkers and that affected his mental state.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

That was an awesome episode, I liked taking a break from the main group and see how other survivors have dealt with the situation.

I haven't read the comics, but I have heard some things about the Governor, so for most of the episode I was thinking, "well, he doesn't seem to be that bad." And then nope total crazy psycho

Good episode. I don't understand what the scientist's role is though in the community? Is he trying to find ways to tame the zombies? Second question, why did the Governor kill the army guys? Were they a potential threat to his authority?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

^I think he just wanted their supplies and weapons, plus bringing new people in (especially military) could usurp his authority. It seems like he wants to keep a tight control on things.

As for the scientist I think he's just there to examine the zombies to learn about them, their weaknesses etc.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Yeah, that was what I was expecting from the prison storyline; I got my spoilers crossed. I had some misgivings about this idea, but so far I'm liking it.

Interesting observation. That didn't occur to me until you bring it up now and that the Governor went out of his way to comment on the scientists tea.

Another observation: Interesting the scientist immediately recognized that Michoone knew the zombies personally before they turned

*grin*... My thought exactly...

On the subject of the soldiers... The arguement could be made that they would be a perfect addition to the community, but I have an idea the Gov would view them as a real threat to his authority.. Easy solution.. Kill 'em and take their stuff..

On the tea... Yea.. I noticed that too... I also noticed how the scientist guy kept figiting with the tea pot at the breakfast table.. Kept picking it up and shifting it around... Of course, that could be explained by different camera angles and different takes of the same scene being edited in, but it stood out, and frankly was kind of distracting..

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

According to "Talking Dead" afterwards, the writers threw that in as one of them loves tea and showing up to work in a jacket & tie, etc. It's a neat character quirk, and I doubt it has any additional significance, though it does help set him apart as a person.

Plus, I think it's only natural if you group of survivor has a resident educated guy, to put him to wokr trying to understand the zombie menace. It does grow the universe a little without really fundamentally altering it; although now in TWD if anyone ends up on the road by themselves, they should disable their closest walker, lop off the arms and jaw, and feel a BIT safer in the wilderness thereafter.

I'm not buying that tea observation. And he was going to add something after but the host interupted him and changed the topic.

the people there are all a little stepford wife-ish. And Andrea drank the tea and got all docile after.
