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.

Character Development Is Out. Murderous Governor Is Back.
1 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" where we don't see Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the rest of our core cast.

Plot In A Paragraph: The Governor and Megan are rescued from the pit by Martinez, who is now in charge of a small camp of survivors. Martinez has made it clear that he's in charge, not the Governor. As time goes by, the Governor decides that the leadership of the group is very weak. He's tries to leave, but he realises they will all have to relocate and he knows exactly where they should resettle.

I'm not a fan of these epiosdes, any sympathy dredged up for The Governor in the last episode is gone, as he is clearly back to his murdering dangerous best. Or worst depending what way you look at it!!

This episode brings things back up to the end of episode 5, so the mid season finale, should feature our core group of survivors again.
