For part of the season, it seemed the Governor, as well as Rick, was insane. The major difference is we got to see Rick at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, and we understood he was a guy that is good. It’s now quite clear that Rick never actually deserved to be equated to the Governor. Sure, poor Rick also would sometimes have shouting matches with himself and kept seeing pictures of his dead wife, however, he managed to prevent gunning down his own folks.
Governor is currently the ruler of “Completely-Lost-My-Mind Town.” It’s been clear the Governor is not stable. Stabbing and the savage beating of Milton in the opening is not a huge shocker. He’s now a creature free of worth for human life, although I am quite confident we’ll see the Governor again.
