Little is known about Mrs. Blake's life before the outbreak. At some point, she married Philip Blake and had a daughter named Penny. It is mentioned by Philip that she died in a car crash around eighteen months before the outbreak.
Since Mrs. Blake died and was buried before the outbreak began, she has not made any appearances, except in photographs and having been mentioned in conversations.
The Governor looks over Woodbury from his apartment window as he sips from a glass of whiskey. He walks past Rowan, who is lying naked in his bed, and gazes at a framed photo of his wife and daughter before entering an adjoining, private room.
The Governor tells Andrea that he lost his wife 18 months before the apocalypse, and there are only him and his daughter.
When Michonne enters the Governor's apartment to retrieve her katana, she sees the picture of his family.
When Andrea goes to talk to The Governor, behind him are pictures of his family on display.
At the beginning of the episode, Andrea looks at the photo of the family of the Governor and also has a bit of remorse towards his wife.
The Governor explains that he'll look weak if he leaves Rick Grimes' group alone. "That's your problem," Rick says. The Governor then shares a story about the day his wife was killed in a car crash. She had left a message asking him to call her back. "I sat there clutching that phone thinking, what did she want?" The Governor says, smirking as Rick becomes visibly rattled.
A picture of The Governor along with his wife and daughter is shown throughout this episode because he kept it with him after burning down Woodbury. When he finds shelter in the apartment building, he places it on the table beside the couch he sleeps on after he folds over the part he is in. When Lilly Chambler sees the photo and goes to pick it up, he quickly snatches it away and hides it in his pocket. Later on, he looks at the photo one last time before burning it and dumping the burnt remains of it out of the apartment window.
