It was a game of chess and it set the stage for what is to come......I was pretty satisfied with it.
And also consider that it gave Daryl and Martinez an opportunity to bond and even share a cigarette........they could become good buddies.
The show was tedious and did not advance the plot in the least. Ask yourself one question: If this episode were left out completely, would the story arc be the least bit different? The answer is no. The program is foundering right now, and they need to pick up the pace and stop over-dramatizing every little detail. Last nights episode was a completel waste of time. We learned nothing new about Rick or the Governor's characters or plans, and no more "tension" was established than had already been set by the armed confrontation three weeks ago.
You want still, brooding pictures of Rick or Daryl, put a poster up in your bedroom.
