Merle had to be one of his closest henchmen, and look where that got him? Down to to one eye, and less one creepy,walkers daughter. Most Woodburians likely think the guv is a great guy and takes care of the town, they don't see the tiger's true stripes. I don't think he trusts them, he just believes in their naivete.
So............. Who does Philip trust????

Alternatively, you could also just call me Soiled_Panties, on account of how pissy I can be.

As I've posted before, I think Merle gave orders to the troops based on whatever reasoning TG told him to use. The dead chopper pilot confessed? Said his guys were coming to conquer WB? We need to kill them before they hurt our people?
When the writers leave SO much to imagination, it's not difficult to come up with one's own scenario. lol.

The governor does have a small inner circle of people he relies on. But in the end, he trusts no one. He would easily get rid of members of his inner circle if it suited him. And Milton knows this. Milton will keep siding with the Governor because it is to his advantage. But in the end he will not sink with him.
Exactly. TG is a paranoid sociopath. He trusts no one and tests those who are close to him constantly, looking for signs of betrayal. Let's face it - he's a long time passenger on the train to Crazytown. Milton knows TG is nuts; Milton is such a coward that he doesn't care. As long as TG keeps Milton safe, Milton will continue to lick his boots and pander to his every whim.
