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 »

Quotes

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.
The Governor: Probably best not think too much about it.
Mitch Dolgen: Better listen to One Eye Bri, Pete. I can never tell if he's winking or blinking. But you know how to regulate. Don't you, Bri? He was always like this, Martinez?

The "Character Development" Is Gone: The Psychopath Is Back
26 November 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The Governor, Alisha, Tara and Meghan are welcomed by Martinez's group of survivors. After a patrol of Martinez, Pete, Mitch and the Governor, Martinez plays golf on the roof of a RV. Out of the blue, the Governor kills him and Pete takes the provisional leadership of the group. The Governor also kills him and then he threatens Mitch to assume the leadership of the survivors.

"Dead Weight" is another episode where the writers continue to stall the fans. The last episode was a waste of time, but many viewers have written the clichés that it would be "a great character development" of The Governor. Now the psychopath is back with the leadership of a group; therefore, back to the end of the Season Three, except that it is a different group. The interesting part of the series, the group in the prison, is again forgotten. Now there is only one episode before the break in December and the writers will certainly interrupt the show in its climax. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Dead Weight"

Note: On 15 April 2016, I saw this show again.
