In last week's episode of the zombie apocalypse drama, Rick and The Governor met up at a neutral location to discuss the future. Andrea, Martinez and Milton waited outside for The Governor, while Rick's people - Daryl Dixon and Hershel Greene, waited too, for their leader.

During the meet-up, The Governor insisted he was there for nothing other than for Rick's gang to surrender. The meeting ended, however, with Phillip (The Gov's first name) asking Rick to hand over Michonne (Danai Gurira).

AMC's "Talking Dead" offered a new sneak peek at this coming Sunday's episode, "Prey" online, HERE.
