**‘Walking Dead’: Rick prepares to negotiate with the Governor **
latimes ^ | March 10, 2013 | 8:27 a.m | – Gina McIntyre

Posted on 03/10/2013 2:22:40 PM PDT by virgil283

"It’s been a strong run of episodes of late for “The Walking Dead” — last week’s installment, “Clear,” won plaudits for its smart character moments and the return of Morgan, the good-natured man played by Lennie James, who initially saved the life of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes way back in the series pilot.

Of course, a great deal has changed in the intervening time and the former friends found themselves navigating a tricky reunion. But Rick will have to face off against a very different kind of man in Sunday’s “Arrow on the Doorpost” when he sits down with the Governor (David Morrissey) to come up with a peace treaty that would enable the leaders to prevent any further deaths among their people."

stay tuned after the episode for Lauren Cohan (Maggie) & actress Eliza Dushku on the Talking Dead. ( Yes, I know all about Eliza’s politics. :) )

I’ll have to rewatch the episode, but I thought I saw Eliza’s name written on Morgan’s wall. I could be wrong.

Sure hope it’s not as slow as last week’s ep. That was draining.

Love it

virgil, do you think we’re going to lose a member of the group before the end of the season?

"do you think we’re going to lose a member of the group before the end of the season?"......yeah I do. I would hazzard that Merle will go down to the bite mob......just to pay for his sins....[and that, he will never fit in ] what do you think?.. ('cause you guessed correctly about the guy who showed up from the first season...)

We do not pick up hitchhikers in the zombie apocalypse. But Thank you for the backpack “roadkill”.

Notice Poor “ERIN”.

I think someone else had the info about Morgan...PatriotBabe, maybe?

But I agree with you-—I sort of think Merle will die, maybe a hero’s death to redeem himself. I think that’s why they’re working to make us like him.

I have been wondering how close to the graphic novel they are going to stay. ‘Cause, if they follow that, well, we are going to be losing a lot of the cast this season.

What I'd like to know is why they hired a hack actor like the guy who plays Rick (that's the sheriff guy, right?).

Have you seen the movie 'Seven' with Brad Pitt playing a rookie detective? Right at the end he comes to the terrible realization that the package just delivered to him contains the head of his wife. And then he does that distraught little dance. And THAT is what Rick does. All the time, every time. It seems to be the whole extent of his acting capability. Imitating another hack actor.

Final Scene of SE7EN (language alert)

And here's Rick. LOL.

The series would profit greatly by having him 'go away' somehow...

True. I already read the Governor arc, and it’s waaay more brutal than what the show can come up with.

I hope not! I think Merl is going to become the go-to man when it come to somebody needing killing. I think that when Merl saw the scars on his little brother’s back, that was a life-changing moment.

I hope the next one to go is the Governor’s new main squeeze. I bet her head ends up in one of his tanks.

LOL, that did amuse me. Backed up the car, opened the door, pulled forward, and no more backpack on the road!

Thanks for the ping!

I’m going to go ahead and order the second season. We don’t have a television (much less cable), so I’ll have to wait till this current season is on DVD to watch it on the computer, but I’m sure we’ll be ready for it when it comes out.

I thought last week's episode was a welcome relief from the intensity of all the previous shows........

...and Daryl has himself a new crossbow thanks to Michoun and the firearm shopping spree.

Andrea is one of the best characters in the books. Hate her in the shows.

Does Netflix not stream on the computer, too?

I’ve found it on Amazon, same way, streaming. The price has gone up since I bought Season One quite a while back. I guess since the show took off—supply and demand and all. :-)

According to the guys here at work, Netflix streams onto PCs and iPhones.

I get the shows on iTunes.

Haven’t had one in over 5 years.

Feels great. I don’t miss it.

Yes, we are then! I haven’t really ever had a television, except for a brief couple of times when people felt sorry for me because of it and gave me one, even though I always told friends I didn’t want one. I ended up giving them away after a while.

In last night’s Talking Dead, Eliza Dushku had to throw politics in there. Mentioning Bill Clinton’s lying compared to the Governor. Ugh!
