Woodbury’s strict immigration policy concerns me. The Governor didn’t want the National Guard guys in the town and he clearly doesn’t want Rick and crew to join the settlement. He only seems interested in hot blondes.
Can you blame him?

I don’t blame him. I’m just not sure there’s enough of them left in the post-apocalypse to maintain population levels, given the high fatality rate amongst Woodbury citizens.
Well, just to be serious for a moment, which I really hate doing, it’s clear that the Governor doesn’t want anyone with any kind of authority or ability to question or confront his authority. The people from the prison are doing their own thing and he’s certainly not going to want them in there, especially because they looked at that prison and were like, “Eh, that thing’s lost,” and now there are people who went in and took that prison over. That’s going to be very irritating to the Governor, that somebody was able to do something he thought was impossible. And the National Guard people, they would come in and run that town and he would not want that to happen. He wants followers. So anyone that shows up and appears to be a follower, he’s going to be letting in.

It’s probably an irrelevant point now, but how long should you date someone before you introduce them to your zombie daughter and/or show off your collection of severed zombie heads?
At least three months. You’re not going to want to do that any time before then. You’ve got to make sure you’ve got the hook in.

I don’t mean this in a sexual sense, but it seems to me that the real romance of this season has been between Andrea and Michonne.
Yeah, I see that. It’s definitely something that we’re playing with. She and Andrea were off on their own together for a very long time and, while it’s not a sexual relationship or anything like that, they do have a tremendous bond and seeing that torn apart seeing them go through this separation is a big deal for both of them and is something that we are going to be exploring a lot moving forward as well.

To be clear, the Governor turned on Merle because he realized that Merle had lied about killing Michonne?
Exactly, exactly. He blames Merle for the fact that he wasn’t prepared for a confrontation with Michonne. And actually Michonne is coming after the Governor because she knows the Governor sent Merle to kill her. So all of that was set in motion by Merle not only not killing her but lying to to the Governor.

Am I right in thinking that that is the dearly departed Mr Coleman we saw the Governor feeding his daughter at one point?
I believe so, yes. What, you gonna let a body go to waste?
