Andrea arranges for Rick and the Governor to meet at a neutral site. They no sooner arrive than the Governor makes it clear he's not there to negotiate but to tell Rick he and his people have to clear out. When Andrea interjects, the Governor tells her to leave. He decides to offer Rick a deal: give him Michonne and he will leave Rick and his group alone. While the two are talking, those that accompanied them wait patiently outside and find that they have more in common than they might have thought. Back at the prison, Merle tries to convince those still there that they should seize the opportunity and attack the Governor. With their negotiations complete, Rick and the Governor agree to meet again in two days time. The Governor has no intention of making a deal however and Rick sees through him and knows they will soon be going to war. Written by

The title "Arrow on the Doorpost" comes from the practice of many native American tribes of sticking a tomahawk or arrow into a tree or gatepost marking the the outer boundary of their land during times of war with other tribes. The tomahawk or arrow would be planted at the beginning of the conflict and not removed until the conflict was resolved. In some modern native American families this tradition has been updated, and the family will similarly mark a post on a verandah or tree in the front yard while a family member in service to the military is deployed in combat.

What about the deal?
Well, they'll bring Rick, Merle's brother, maybe Glenn, Merle himself. We can take care of the whole crew. Best way to avoid a slaughter.
That is a slaughter.
Not at our end. We're gonna have to eliminate Rick soon or later. No way we can live side by side.
