Hershel tells Milton the story of his lost leg -- in a total of about ten words -- and how they've been learning by trial and error. "Me too," Milton says. Milton asks to see the stump, and Hershel refuses. "At least buy me a drink first," he chuckles, and the two of them laugh like it's the funniest thing they've heard since the world ended.
Inside, the Governor is describing his conflict with Rick as a failure of leadership on his own part, but adds that leaving Rick and his people alone would be a bigger failure. He goes on to say that they're going to kill everyone they know, in both places. "People we love, Rick." He recalls being at his shitty job when he got a call about his wife being in an accident. "Sorry, Mr. Blake, we did everything we could." He recalls knowing he would never see her again. And he owed her a call at the time, and now he'll never know what she wanted. The question is clearly getting inside Rick's head. Good thing there's whiskey. And the possibility that Lori will show up and tell him.
At the prison, Glenn's using a torch to cut a small gunport in the fence surrounding the lookout point. When he comes back inside, he finds Merle packing a bag and says he can't let him go. "If Michonne can [stay], why can't you?" Maggie demands angrily of Merle. Merle angrily says it's because it's his brother out there, and squares off against Glenn at the exit. "Nut up already, boy. This guy cops a feel of your woman and you pussy out like this?" Well, as long as we're digging up old grudges, Merle... Glenn refuses to move, and they end up grappling on the floor. Maggie and Michonne jump on them to separate them, and it's Beth who ends up actually breaking it up, by firing a round into the ceiling. Morgan would be so pleased to know his gear is being put to good use.
Hershel goes over to ask Andrea how it's going. "They kicked me out," Andrea answers, looking like it's the worst thing that could possibly have happened. Hershel kindly tells her she's trying to help. Andrea asks what happened with the Governor and Maggie, and Hershel only says, "He's a sick man." Andrea wonders what her next move is. "I can't go back there," she sobs. Hershel says she belongs with them, "but if you join us, it's settled." Andrea says she knows. Whether she does or not.
Inside, the Governor plays the reluctant leader bit, telling Rick that he never wanted this and doesn't even know what he's doing. He puts his gunbelt back on and remarks to Rick, "That was quite a stash you brought back the other day." Okay, are all the characters watching every episode now? The Governor admits that his people aren't as combat-tested as Rick's, but he's got more of them. "This fighting will go down to the last man. So let's end it. Today. Let's not do this. We can walk away. You have something that I want. One thing that makes this all right." Rick says he's not about to give up the prison. But the Governor sits down again, saying he wants no part of that. "That doesn't sound safe at all." He also doesn't want Rick to move out. "Best you stay where I can keep my one good eye on you." Speaking of which, he removes his patch and shows Rick his ruined socket, so that it's not really a surprise when he makes his demand: "I want Michonne. Turn her over and this all goes away. Is she worth it? One woman? Worth all those lives in your prison?" Rick appears to be considering it. No wonder the Governor's been plying him with drink.
