In an interview with Kevin Smith, Greg Nicotero revealed that one of the floating heads in the Governor's fish tanks was a recreation of Ben Gardner's head in "Jaws." Ben's head famously popped out of a hole in his fishing boat after he was attacked by the great white shark. See more »

Lt. Welles: [the pilot Lt. Welles in the helicopter full of soldiers talks over the radio] Whiskey 1-2. Whiskey 1-2, do you copy? Going 180, close the distance, get back in contact!
Lt. Welles: [when the helicopter is shot at from below and starts to go down] Have faith, guys. I've gotten us through a lot more than some light turbulence.

Meet The Governor
30 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: The Governor Enters The Scene. Michonne and Andrea are taken whilst investigating a crashed helicopter.

Merle (Michael Rooker) is alive and doing quite well for himself as the Governors right hand man at Woodbury, which looks to be an ideal safe haven, a little town with a sense of community. It looks a lot safer than the prison, but all is not as it seems. Whilst Andrea is delighted to be there, Michonne is far from convinced.

A total change of pace from two action packed and Walker filled episodes, as the episode focus's on the community at Woodbury.

This is the first episode where we never see Rick and the group. Whilst it's not a bad episode I hope there are not too many more like it.
