^ The way I interpreted Martinez' and Shumpert's reaction to the Governor flipping out is that they are basically loyal soldiers. Both were shocked at what they were seeing and probably not as crazy as the Governor, but they had to make a decision. What are they going to do? Shoot the Governor and then it is the two of them out on the road by themselves? They can't go to the prison, they would be dead on sight, no way Rick takes either one in. Woodbury is likely a lost cause at this point, no reinforcements in the town and they have to figure that Rick and Daryl will come looking soon enough. So they had a decision to make, try to survive on their own with no supplies or continue following this madman. It may not be the best decision they've made but it is not totally indefensible.
