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.

The skull-crushing moment needed more than just a prosthetic walker head for full impact. A fake hand was also used to prevent injury as it hit the solid wall of the pit. 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 »

What an episode!
20 November 2013 | by faesboris1996See 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!

9/10
