They don't know how bad it is outside yet - they didn't even know all dead people turned for instance, and they are tired of spagettios after 1.5 years. Heck the Govenor wouldn't even eat his spagettios and preferred cat food. I probably would as well.
It is dumb they didn't try to drive away with supplies.
I don't think it is inconsistent for the gov to have killed the apartment walker upstairs that was making noise that the old man talked dispairingly about. He was basically making it more comfortable for the girl and her family downstairs. The family was stroking his ego, giving him a purpose, and giving him a will to live again. If nothing else the Governor likes to feel needed or important. As for the walkers in the nursing home and leaving them be, he was just trying to be as quiet as he could be.
I don't care to see a softer side of the govenor and I won't allow myself to give his character any grace. He did horrendous things in season 3, including decapitating the soldier and storing his head right after telling the same soldier he would help him, murdering his long time best friend Milton, and planning sadistic torture for his lovers friend. Ultimately torturing his lover with his best friend as a walker. Not to mentioin shooting off his whole town when they displeased him. He is as two faced and evil as they come. There is no redemption for him just because he has a soft caring spot for his daughter and little girls her age. Hitler loved his dog very much and was plenty kind to his dog - it doesn't redeem him.
Uhm, I don't think so, for multiple reasons.
They immediately said lets leave. They didn't try to convince him to stay with all their supplies, tons of food etc. They say immediatetly lets go, take us with you? Also, their father didn't provide much in the way of a man in the house being cripple and dying. They know what it is like outside because they saw the "monsters" upstairs and how they wouldn't die. They know the dead turn now, the Gov. told them, no matter what, you come back, it was clearly said. So they know how bad it is yet their first choice is to flee all the food and protection? Don't wan tto stay in that apartment because he died? Move to a different one/floor.
He killed the walker to save the people the noise? What noise? It was in a tub, it wasn't the one walking around making all the noise they heard, it couldn't even move. So say even if he did do it for that reason, he doesn't kill the ones in the nursing home because of being quiet, how is it not quiteer to stab them in the head then to let them thrash around, drag themselves, make noise, bang on things trying to get to him? It has always been quieter to stab them so they don't attract others. Come on now, how is it quieter to keep a moaning, thrashing, clawing zombie desperately trying to get to you then to stab it in the head?
They did drive away with the supplies. They drove away in the truck they said was loaded with supplies and I believe they even showed some of the boxes they talked about in the back.
