Trivia

In preparation for Season 4, David Morrissey lost weight to show the hardship the Governor faced. While the weight loss was real, the hair and beard were fake, specially made for him in London. 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 »

The Governor: Sometimes.

The Most Boring and Deceptive Episode so far
19 November 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Governor, a.k.a. Brian Heriot, wanders without destiny and disconnected of 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.

"Live Bait" is the most boring and deceptive episode so far of "The Walking Dead" disclosing humanity from The Governor. The sequence of the last episode should be with Rick encountering Daryl to tell what he did to Carol, but the whole episode is a development of another side of the Governor. The writers are stalling, "Live Bait" is a waste of time and now we fans have only two more episodes before the break in December. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "Live Bait"

Note: On 14 April 2016, I saw this show again.
