The episode begins and Rick along with Hershel and Daryl, arrives for the talks at what looks to be an abandoned barn. They are tense and on their guard for a possible ambush. Rick enters the barn looking for the Governor, and just then he walks out of the shadows. The Governor says they have a lot to discuss. During the meeting, Rick mentions how his men attacked him and his group, but he counters that he could have killed them all and he didn’t. He then removes his gun and Rick is immediately on the alert, but the Governor says he is only removing his weapon as a sign of good faith. It’s then revealed that he has another gun taped right under the table. ..Read the full recap

Daryl: You better watch your mouth, sunshine.
Martinez: Look, if you and I are going to be out here pointing guns at each other all day, do me a favour, shut your mouth.
Milton: May I see it. Your stump, I'd like to, um... ahem, see where the amputation was. How high above the bite.
Hershel: I'm not showing you my leg.
Milton: It's important data.
Hershel: I just met you. At least buy me a drink first.
The Governor: I thought you were a cop, not a lawyer.
Rick: Either way, I don't pretend to be a governor.
The Governor: I told you, I'm their leader.
Rick: You're the town drunk who knocked over my fence and ripped up my yard, nothing more.
The Governor: Didn't you ever misjudge someone? Hmm? Andrea told me about your baby. That it might be your partner's. But you're caring for her and I admire that. Restitution for your own lack of insight. For failing to see the devil beside you.
Rick: Oh, I see him, all right.
Daryl: Look what he's got.
(offers Martinez a cigarette)
Martinez: Nah. I prefer menthols.
Milton: What about the deal?
The Governor: 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.
Milton: That is a slaughter.
The Governor: Not at our end. We're gonna have to eliminate Rick soon or later. No way we can live side by side.
Daryl: Are you army or something?
Martinez: Nah, I just hate these things. You know, after what they did to my wife...kids.
Daryl: That sucks.
