Maybe his group was on the other side of the prison woods.
This is a discussion on The Governor and Terminus. within the The Walking Dead Television Series forums, part of the The Walking Dead TV Series category. "Maybe his group was on the other side of the prison woods...."
I may be wrong about this, but haven't everyone of the Terminus signs been on the RR tracks? (nailed to the support beam of a bridge or hanging from a boxcar) If someone was traveling by road they would have never seen these signs.
I think the Governor was just wondering aimlessly, waiting to die. He certainly wasn't looking for human interaction until he saw Megan. Oh, and I would bet Terminus is going to be some kind of trap luring people to their doom. This is the Walking Dead after all.
Has potential to be a huge plot hole, but until we see how it plays out on TV...the thread is a bit premature.
