RECAP: Chris introduces his guests Paul Scheer, Fred Armison and Jose Pablo Cantillo; Chris said that Pablo had a really cool death and asked when he found out his character would die. Pablo mentions how he knew that when he got a call three weeks ago; he felt like it was weird seeing Martinez speak so much now and then getting a golf club to the head. Pablo mentions that when you read the scripts there’s a lot of suspense and that when he thought his character was doing so well; but then just dies. Pablo mentions a lot of characters he acts as die and liked the violent death. Fred mentions that he never felt The Governor would never be good; he always saw this power hungry monster making a comeback. Paul says he was like Forest Gump walking around on this life changing journey and now is just building back all he has; but now he’s getting an army alongside a new family. Paul says that Martinez saw everything that The Governor has done wrong in the past; plus talking about the past probably made him feel like his present self might have been brought up. Fred says that his family was only something to justify the killing he does as if he is protecting the people at the camp.
Chris mentions romance in the apocalypse is incredibly bad; it never ends well. We now have a fan come up and asks Pablo how he prepared for his final episode; he mentions having to learn lines was different. He never really focused on the scenes he got killed; he just pretend the moment would never happen.
Chris asks what Martinez was thinking having trusted The Governor again; Pablo says that his character is dark and then Paul says that teaming up with The Governor was someone who could help protect the people very well.
Chris then says the scene in the cabin where they find all the corpses with writing on them; Fred says it was a moment for The Governor to kind of reflect on what he has done in his life. Paul says that he could not save his own family before but wants to now have the power to protect the people he’s with now. Chris says he felt bad for Pete in the show and asks if what The Governor did was right; Pablo felt it was right because being naive in that type of world would kill you. Chris then says that The Governor is pretty much recreating the aquarium of heads with a whole lake of walkers; Paul says that it’s a reminded of what being week does to you.Chris says that this episode was kind of assuring that The Governor is completely back.
Fred asks about how we might see Martinez as a walker; Chris says it’s possible but doesn’t know. Chris asks if someone was eating his hair; Pablo says that the stunt man actually pulled out a bunch of his hair. Paul asks how long it took; Pablo said that it took at least half a day to film the whole death scene. Chris asks if there is a ritual when someone dies on the show; Pablo says if there was then he missed it and said that Andrew Lincoln actually was really nice and said goodbye to him. Chris asks who so swiftly took out everyone in the camp that was wiped out; Paul says it could be Carol who went completely rogue. Chris then says that Bob could be the only guy who could be feeding rats to the walkers; kind of like an inside man. Paul says there has to be another group out there that is more vicious with killing off the camp. Chis then asks what their roles in the group would be if they were leaders; Paul says that no being killed would be great.
Chris asks what Fred felt when The Governor stumbled on to Michonne and Hershel; Fred is hoping he didn’t kill any of them because he doesn’t feel he isn’t the simple. Chris says he might want the prison because it’s the best way to recreate Woodbury; it’s the best place for another well defended base. Chris feels like he is building a new army to take over the prison this time. Chris asks what is going through the Governor’s mind as he looks at Rick and Carl; Pablo says it’s to keep his hate alive to remind him what happened him. Paul feels that The Governor is a family man; Fred feels like his family is replaceable and are only there to make himself feel better. A caller asks Fred and Paul wondering if it was there choice; how they would have handled The Governor in the pit. Paul says that he’d kill him in the pit; Fred says he would also kill him right away. Chris asks if Martinez made the right choice; Pablo says it was because The Governor was strong and they had history.
Another fan comes up from the audience asking Pablo why he thinks The Governor has so much hatred against heroes but wants to presented to be one; Pablo says that all people with good intentions gets others killed. He believes that he has to show that there is a new type of hero; Chris says he wants to just manipulate people to have them do his bidding. Chris asks what role they’d play in the apocalypse; Fred said he’d make a nice coffee and Paula says he’d be making a great BBQ. Chris says he has no skill set that would be useful; a fan asks if The Governor was a bad guy in the beginning would his daughter be alive. Chris then mentions if it was right to kill Martinez; the only man who trusted him and followed. Fred mentions that Mitch is much dumber than Martinez and that’s what makes him better; he is a lot easier to manipulate.
