The last two episodes were a change of pace. Very intense sit down. I like the build up.
I thought the whole counterpart schtick they pulled was just the writers spoonfeeding the viewer in the simplest way that in a normal circumstance they would get along and they don't want to kill each other. It's such a long way from building any real tension. If Daryl fires an arrow through the governors henchmans brains the next episode, no one is gonna give a shit about it, just because he shared a cig with the guy. It's gonna be just another random fatality for the sake of it. I'll keep watching but honestly, I'm not invested in a single character right now.
