I think it would have been a much more convincing argument if he had explained that when they told that stupid kid to drop his gun he said "Take it." Dumbass. What part of "Drop your gun" do you not understand? Drop it already! Don't offer to hand it to them! That just makes it look like you're trying to be shady. I'd have shot him too, just for being too moronic to follow simple directions.
This was exactly the point I was trying to make to a friend on the Carl situation... I thought he actually was gonna try to overtake Carl by handing him the gun and that was just my gut reaction to the situation... He was being shady, and I think there was ambiguity there because they wanted you as the viewer to see it from both sides...
You're having a gun pointed at you, you're told to drop your weapon, but you instead try handing it to him like you're trying to feed a Tiger a piece of chicken... You're a dip**** and deserved to die for no other reason than you don't follow simple direction.
That said... Herschel's missing a leg, not a hand, and was armed... How did he not take charge there? Dude's a badass shot, clearly, and was there too... He lets Carl run that ****? Again, I didn't care for that.
Wonder if the prison crew took what Governor & Co. left out there? That military truck, all the weapons... Governor didn't pick all that up, they just left. Lotta hardware to be had. Plus that .50 on the disabled Humvee which I'm not so sure driving them over spikes disables them that easily... Some of our military vets on here might be able to elaborate but I thought their tires didn't deflate so easily. Maybe I'm wrong though.
I thought the Governor's plan was pretty typical of him... We'll just roll in and f everyone up with sheer force. The grenade launchers, .50 cal, etc. I thought it was pretty much what I'd figured he was gonna do anyway, but yeah they got f'd ultimately because they were largely inexperienced... I was happy with all that stuff actually, and how it played out. The Catacombs under the prison are spooky for Rick's group so they're downright terrifying to the Woodbury folks I'm sure.
A little anticlimactic maybe, but I enjoyed it for the most part. Great season, looking forward to Fall already.
