Episode Quotes

Rick Grimes: [points to Tara] You. You in the ponytails. Is this what you want? Is this what any one of you want?
Mitch Dolgen: What we want is what you got. Period. Time for you to leave, asshole.
Rick Grimes: Look, I've fought him before. And after, we took in his old friends. They've become leaders in what we have here. Now you put down your weapons, walk through those gates... you're one of us. We let go of all of it, and nobody dies. Everyone who's alive right now. Everyone's who's made it this far. We've all done the worst kinds of things just to stay alive. But we can still come back. We're not too far gone. We get to come back. I know... we all can change.
The Governor: Liar.
Hershel Greene: Just tell us what this is. Please.
The Governor: It isn't personal.
Hershel Greene: Than what is it?
The Governor: Michonne, I want you to know... Penny, my daughter, she was dead. I know that now. Now, I don't want to hurt you. I don't want to hurt anyone. I need the prison, that's it. There are people I need to keep alive. You two are gonna help me take it. No one needs to die.
Michonne: I'm gonna kill you.
The Governor: No, you won't.
Michonne: I'm gonna take my...
Hershel Greene: Stop it. You want the prison?
The Governor: Yeah. And I will take it as peacefully as I can.
Hershel Greene: Governor...
The Governor: Don't call me that.
Hershel Greene: Your people, our people, we can find away to live together. These people you need to keep alive, do you love them?
The Governor: You're a good man, Hershel. A better man than Rick.
Hershel Greene: Everything you said, the way you've said it, you've changed. So has Rick.
The Governor: The two of us will never be able to live together. Michonne and I, we'll never be able to live together.
Hershel Greene: We'll find a way.
The Governor: I found a way! I'm trying hard. There's all kinds of ways I could do this. This way, you get to live and I get to be...
Hershel Greene: You say you want to take this prison as peacefully as possible. That means you'd be willing to hurt people to get it. My daughters would be there. That's who you'd be hurting. If you understand what it's like to have a daughter, then how could you threaten to kill someone else's?
The Governor: Because they aren't mine.
The Governor: Rick! Come down here. We need to talk.
Rick Grimes: It's not up to me. There's a council now. They run this place.
The Governor: Is Hershel on the council? What about Michonne? She on the council, too?
Rick Grimes: I don't make decisions anymore.
The Governor: You're making the decisions today, Rick. Come down here. Let's have that talk.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (continuity error): (at around 1 min) When the Governor is telling the camp he's going to take the prison, Hershel is setting the red plastic gas can down on the trailer. As the Governor hits Michonne in the face, there is a metal gas can behind the red one he just sat down that wasn't in the previous shot.
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: (at around 30 mins) When the Governor is first shot he grabs his arm and there is blood on his coat. In the next shot when he's running back with his hand on the wound there is no blood on his coat or his hand.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The Governor's main obsession had always been to capture, torture, and kill Michonne. However when he does catch her, he is focused on killing a stranger (Hershel) instead. He then completely forgets about Michonne once gunfire begins.
  • Goof (continuity error): (at around 6 mins) When the Governor has Hershel and Michonne captive in the camper, he says, "You should eat, it's going to be a long day." He grabs a ration pack with his left hand out of his left coat pocket. But in the next shot he is giving Hershel the ration with his right hand.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): At around 35:20 Daryl is pinned down between some of the Governor's men and some walkers, so he takes cover behind a filing cabinet, which are made out of thin sheet metal. It shows bullets hitting the cabinet (by the way bullets don't make sparks when they hit metal objects) but not penetrating it. As filing cabinets are made of either thin sheet metal or aluminum they would not stop a bullet from even a handgun, let alone a bullet from a AR-15 which fires small very high velocity bullets, they would of gone right through it and killed Daryl in an actual fire fight.

Trivia

  • Too far gone was the name of the 13th volume of the comic series however the two do not share the same story arc that was shown towards the end of season 5
  • The Governor becomes the third person to use Michonne's katana sword on screen in this episode. Merle previously used it in "The Walking Dead" (2010) {This Sorrowful Life (#3.15)} to dispatch a walker.
  • SPOILER: Last Appearance of Lilly.
  • SPOILER: This episode marks the last time that the Greene family is all together due to Hershel's death. The Greene sisters get separated when the prison falls and this is the last time they see each other.
  • Clara, the woman from "The Walking Dead" (2010) {30 Days Without an Accident (#4.1)}, can be seen as a walker coming through the prison field near the end of the episode.
