Warning: Spoilers Ahead!
It's seems the once-mighty dictator of Woodsbury went thru some tough times since he got his butt kicked at Club Cell Block, and I'm so glad the powers that be behind our favorite show let us see exactly what's been going on.
It seems one-eyed Phillip has gone from "I will destroy you all" to "who gives a shit" as he walked his bearded self thru the apocalypse, doing the bare minimum to escape being eaten here and there.
Finally, after who knows how many miles of walking, he found himself a new Penny (his zombie daughter, put down by Michonne). Now, all of a sudden, we have a happier, NICER Governor (albeit one with a fake name)! He's found a new family and appears to want to erase his past!
So.... do you buy it, or is the big jerk just playing a role until he can assume power again?
Listen to those involved and see what you think:
Aim high. Run fast.
