What an episode!
20 November 2013 | by (Antwerp) – See all my reviews

This episode was absolutely amazing! I've been waiting to see the governor return. And finally he returned. This episode was a slow episode but that doesn't mean it was bad. If you love his character, you will love this episode. You will start feeling sorry for him. And "live bait" was definitely not a filler. It was a necessarily episode to see the governor and what he did in the mean time

There was some great character development in "live bait". And DM is such a great actor. I don't have anything else to say to this episode. hands down, it was great. I can't wait to see the next episode!
