And they're about to do more, as Rick, Daryl, Oscar and Michonne make it to the outer perimeter in the night and behold the wall unseen from behind an abandoned car. Inside, the Governor says Daryl's group might be searching for Maggie and Glenn right now. "Blood is blood, right? Makes me wonder where your loyalties lie." I've been wondering the same thing about Daryl when he realizes who he's up against. "Merle insists to the Governor that his loyalties are here. Satisfied but still worried, the Governor tells Merle and the other henchman to take a group to scout out the prison. Uh-oh... that means it's going to be Merle versus Carl. That will be a short fight.
Outside, Rick contemplates the wall and looks pretty hopeless. Inside the ramparts, the large man Michonne made eye contact with on her and Andrea's first day there descends the wall with his bow and walks past Andrea as she heads back to the Governor's place where he's sitting pensively and alone when Andrea comes in without knocking. "You kept your word. That you'd be back," he says, and they get right to macking. "Everything all right with Milton?" he asks. Andrea pours herself a drink, also without being invited, and explains that Mr. Coleman died. "And did Milton find what he was looking for?" The Governor asks. Andrea says no, getting emotional and accepting comfort from the Governor much more readily than Maggie did. "It's over now," he says, stroking her hair while his face tells us that it's anything but. That'll have to wait for next week's midseason finale, duh.
