Face to Face!
Last night's episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" was all about 'peace talks' between Rick and the Governor and it was awesome.
So what was the first thing I loved? They both kicked Andrea out of the negotiations. That just made me smile.
But the best part? The best part was not Glenn's unfolding courage to keep Merle from leaving the prison and potentially destroying the group's plan..... nor was it the verbal chess match between Rick and the Governor... in my opinion, it was the walker-killing contest between Daryl and the Governor's henchman, Martinez. When a group of walkers showed up, both men took on kind of a "let's see what you can do" mentality. Guess who won? Was there a doubt? Martinez is pretty tough, but Daryl won out with a sweet knife throw.
What was interesting about this episode is that the two groups actually bonded a little. Daryl and Martinez smoked, while Martinez opened up a little about the family he once had, and Milton and Herschel actually shared a laugh over, of all things, Milton wanting to see Herschel's 'leg stump.'
Here's a video showing what went on, and reflection from those involved as to what it means to the characters involved.
