Quotes

Pete Dolgen: Man, what happened here? I mean, what the hell is going on in this cabin? Were they storing those biters?
Caesar Martinez: They were his wife and kid, man.
Pete Dolgen: No, they were biters. What about those heads?
Caesar Martinez: Belonged to the guys who did the wrong thing to the wrong man.
The Governor: Probably best not think too much about it.
Mitch Dolgen: Better listen to One Eye Bri, Pete. I can never tell if he's winking or blinking. But you know how to regulate. Don't you, Bri? He was always like this, Martinez?

The Governor We Know Is Back!
29 January 2015 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the seventh episode of the fourth season of the Walking Dead. So this was fast. After one episode showing the Governor as a man, we seem him back to his normal self here: a murderous psychopath. I'm not sure if we needed another episode designed for solely the Governor, as I would like to get back to our main characters in the prison. But the episode is good and the ending hints at another promising confrontation.

In this episode, "Dead Weight," The Governor and his new friends are welcomed into Martinez's group, but this time Martinez is the leader. But the Governor has different plans. He kills Martinez and another guy to assume leadership.

Overall, this is a solid episode, but I'm not sure if this episode and last episode could have worked better as one. But it's nice to see where the Governor stands and the cliffhanger is pretty good. I rate this episode 8/10.
