My guess is that Rick, being the upright citizen that he is, told her that he was fine (a lie, but it's Rick) and to run and check on the others, killing anything/one that gets in her way. She's not an idiot, so I figure she knew he wasn't going down and went off to help the less badass.

very nice analysis, i like this

finally got to watch last nite (damn 8 month old!) and thought it was an absolutely awesome episode

I'm not much on vengeance, but I actually screamed "YES!" when the sword went through the Governor.

See that's the thing. I went "OH HELL NO, why stick him, and leave his head attached!?!"

You did see the part later where he was shot in the head, right? Maybe Michonne wanted to let him die slow, then kill him as a biter? Maybe she didn't want to accidentally hit Rick? Maybe a Freudian interpretation of her phallic thrust of said sword through the Governor's chest was particularly satisfying to her and would hold some explanatory value in your eyes?

I didn't record the episode so I can't go back and watch, but I don't remember if Hershel was finished off by anyone? Did someone shoot or stab him in the head?

He was crawling away, governor got down next to him and started hacking with the sword. He decapitated Hershel. They didn't show Hershel while the governor was hacking away, but I do believe they showed the head separates from his body afterwards

Michonne didn't want to slice off the governors head because that would've been too easy for him. She wanted to give a critical blow and let him suffer and feel the pain that he's inflicted on her and basically everyone else he's interacted with.

I also thought his head would go flying or the sword would come down through it, but I liked the way they did it

Ahh. I don't remember seeing his head separated. Must have looked away briefly.

They blurred it out a little bit when they showed the governor afterwards

I think what Frankp2311 is trying to clarify is whether or not Hershel was given a "merciful end" (as the Governor would say) with a shot/stab through the brain, since decapitation wouldn't necessarily mean the head wouldn't be re-animated. The answer is no, not that we've seen anyway.

At issue is something we're not really clear on, even four seasons in; the length of time it takes for these microbes/parasites/whatever-they-are to travel to the brain.

There's probably quite a bit that happened between the point where Michonne was standing over the Governor and the hard cut to Rick searching for Carl. Maybe the Governor begging Michonne to end him "properly", her telling him to enjoy being a "biter". Maybe then she saw Hershel and ended him the right way.

That group will attack the prison, which is being held together by less than 20 people and twigs anyway


Carole will meet Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita and take them to the prison. The mega herd is a tell I believe of the prison finally being vacated and a trip heading to DC because of Eugene's lies (if we keep the general story going we will get the church and canibals soon too) - This small group of course will get to the Prison just in time for the governor's attack.

It was good to know why the prison people just didn't go and move into woodbury. it makes sense when the whole town was torched.

I liked the back story and the link with the books. Interesting to see what happened. I was thinking he ate martinez and the other guy out of survival instincts. Instead it was inferred that they left the gov alone because he was a liability to their survival (talking dead). This is why I see "Brian/Phillip/Governor" taking control of that camp. He is very persuasive. I don't see any alliance with Rick forming. Stranger things have happened, but I think he is too broken to go back to pre-zombie dad/uncle/husband and being nice is just a cover.
So i was pretty darn close here on my guess.

I also think he put lilly and kid in harms way on purpose. he knew they would probably die there and knew it was a flood zone, and knew he would probably die at the prison with the group, tank and all.

I watched it online on amctv.com and there is a much cooler trailer for the next episode. It has rick and carl in the house when rick is pretty much dead and going crazy. It is just like in the book. Now I don't know if they go back to the phone deal w/Lori to keep that going or something else.

I'm going to have to read the book again, but didn't they find everyone back at the farm after all this happened? We know they can't go back there, so I wonder where they have set up a meeting place since they were prepared for an evac.

No comment on the baby as I have no idea what happened. I thought it was funny that rick was right next to and then behind all of the governors people yet he only took the one shot to the leg, they didn't even pay attention to him.

I'll stand by my other postings of Carole meeting up w/the other folks and eventually meeting up with the rest of the group. Carole would know about the meeting spot once they see the prison is destroyed and abandoned.

Even after seeing so many zombies get beheaded it still was so emotional to see it happen to Herschel.
