While in the compound, she again chooses life and her facial reactions to the news of how you turn when you die were/was quite interesting.

She has no reason to mistrust Merle or the Governor at the moment. She's worked with Merle before and I don't believe he ever threatened her beyond the confrontation on the roof top. He was for hostile to T-Dog for racial reasons. When the world around you has crumbled, it makes sense to latch onto anything or anyone familiar. He's familiar and if he's survived, it provides you with a sense of hope that you too may be able to survive.

As for the military guys, makes sense. A single man approaches, you're heavily armed he's not. Why would you have your arms up? Ambushes happen all the time (in real life against heavily armed military units). It's not that unforeseen or unrealistic.
In the one episode of the show where we saw both characters together it showed who Merle really was (a racist, violent brute), giving all of the reason to mistrust him? That's a bit of a wild conclusion you're making imo. If anything, it just reinforces the idea that Andrea is naiive and keeps making huge mistakes, just like she did with Shane. If there's anyone she should trust, it's Michonne, who saved her life and kept her alive for 7 months, and at this point Michone obviously doesn't trust the Governor who is keeping them imprisoned while trying to make them believe their free. All in all, Andrea makes stupid decisions, and has ever since her sister died. She's been facing the same internal conflict since then, and there's been no character growth (ie. repeated stupid decisions - wanting to kill herself, fling with Shane, fighting with Dale, and now trusting a group who has a key contributing member that is an obvious villain)

It's amazing what medicine, good food, comfortable bed, clean clothes and a shower will do for your trust in other people...and "secure streets" to walk around in
For me, it seems she wants to believe/trust at this point...which i think is perfectly natural
We'll see where it goes

I see what you're saying. I'm looking at this from a distressed fan point of view I guess, kind of like when you're watching a scary movie and a character makes the obvious wrong decision which is going to get them killed. Frustration, frustration...

besides, she's hot, the Head guy, he's a looker, they can just hook up and start making little soldiers. Same with the Ninja, she needs to get laid...badly.

Screw the "good guys", these "bad guys" are organized, and to be honest, the peeps living there looked happy. Nobody seems to think its bad when the other dude kills people to "protect" their little crew, why is it so bad when these organized guys do it on a larger scale?

I think the difference is that when Rick's crew kills someone they do it in self-defense often after being provoked.

The Gov's crew flat out murders people plain & simple.

I just got sent a picture that reveals who dies this week. Pretty shocking.

Won't reveal though, unless someone really wants to know!

Don't think they would kill off the only asian. Unless you count Evil Glen limited as his role was, part of the main cast now.

I dunno if killing the military dudes would be considered "pre-emptive and proactive".

But still, I'd be happy to stay in their makeshift town for awhile. Obviously shit's gonna go wrong, but a bit of relief would be priceless at that point.
