Storyline

Brian Heriot wanders without direction and disconnected from the world, until he meets a family living in a building. Tara and Lilly take care of their terminal father David and Lilly's daughter, the autistic Megan, in a small apartment and they welcome Brian. He helps the family to bring more oxygen supply and to bury David and becomes close to Lilly. Then they decide to move using the delivery truck that belonged to the deceased father. In the middle of the road, the truck breaks down and they need to walk. When a group of walkers comes toward them, they need to run and Megan finally reacts and Brian saves her live and promises that he will always protect her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The fire that destroyed Woodbury was mostly visual effects, since it was shot in the real town of Senoia, GA. But the town hall was a set that was actually burned to the ground. See more »

Goofs

When Lily is tending to the cut on the Governor's head, she blows on the wound. As a nurse, she would not do that as it would introduce germs from her mouth into the wound. See more »

Poetically written anti-hero
22 November 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Giving this episode an 8/10. Loved the poetic and almost deeply colourful way in which the writers bring the Governor back from the dead, so to speak, and make him, if for most of the episode one of the true walking dead. This is a man truly at war with himself, not only the world. Add to that the Redemption song that lullabies his sad carcass into town... and this is a true statement of courage on behalf of the show.

Please don't banish his soulful colour and make things B/W for him in the next episode. Not suggesting he finds God, but for god's sake... let him continue to struggle on.
