While that's true for the immediate conflict, I think it was inevitable. Let's not forget that the governor murdered all those soldiers. He's a dictator. His way or the highway (full of walkers).

And given their proximity, sooner or later they would have come into contact and conflict.

Eh, I don't know. It really did seem like The Governor had written off the prison at that point.

Or Shane could have used a condom. Then there would have been no Judith Asskicker Grimes to fetch formula for.

Or Rick could have been sure about that one prisoner's death, and he wouldn't have set off the alarm that led to Carol getting trapped and Maggie performing an amateur c-section on Lori that killed her and her breast milk.

Actually, Rick should probably beat himself up more for not killing that prisoner.

I kind of see Merle's picking them up as Merle just doing his job, it just so happened that one of them was an accomplice in him getting shackled to a rooftop. So instead of getting a bed and bath, they were treated like POWs.

Well I mean they all could've blown themselves up along with Jenner at the CDC.

I wouldn't be shocked if the Zombie Apocalypse was Rick's fault.

I felt like that too. Didn't Merle even joke about that after him and Darryl was rescued ?

He did, I think it's likely that Mazzara may be a HUGE Michonne/Andrea shipper.
