It is hinted that the beheaded soldiers and suicide victim, were, in fact, in the presence of the 'Governor' at some point. See more »

Goofs

When the Governor and Lilly are inside the trailer he isn't wearing his eye patch, yet when we see him outside after shooting the walker that was after Meghan he is wearing it once again. It seems highly unlikely that he would go to the trouble of putting his eye patch back on before making sure Meghan was safe. See more »

The Governor We Know Is Back!
29 January 2015 | by (United States) – See 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.
