The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 Recap

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 - 2The episode begins with a flashback to the Governor fleeing the scene in his truck after massacring the Woodbury Army along with Martinez and Shumpert. As the Governor sits beside the campfire staring into the flames, a female walker approaches, stumbles over the fire and catches fire. The Governor is oblivious to her as she crawls towards him until finally Martinez shoots her. The Governor emerges from himself the next morning to find that Martinez and Shumpert have abandoned him, and drives back to Woodbury and burns the entire town of walkers to the ground.

A few months later, the Governor is still wandering around on his own. When he sees a young girl at the window of an abandoned house, he enters to find two sisters, Lily and Tara and Lilly’s daughter Meghan inside. He lays down his weapons as he is held at gunpoint and follows them inside.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 - 3He listens to the sisters and their father David who explain that they’ve been holed up in the apartment for a long time. When asked whether he plans on staying with them, the Governor finally replies that he will stay just for the night and introduces himself as ‘Brian Heriot’, a name he saw painted on a house. Later, when Lilly knocks at his door to offer him a plate of food, the Governor accepts but scraps it in favor of the tuna which he eats straight from a can. When the Governor appears at the sister’s door to return the plate, he is invited to sit down and watches Meghan and David playing backgammon. When the sisters have trouble carrying their father, the Governor easily carries him to his bed. When David asks the Governor to fetch a backgammon set from his friend Bill Jenkins, the Governor obliges, but finds that Bill has turned into a walker in his bathtub and puts him out of his misery. He then pockets the dead man’s revolver and delivers the backgammon set to a delighted David.

He falls asleep while looking at a picture of his wife and daughter Penny. The next morning when Lilly offers him his gun back before he leaves, the Governor tells her to keep it and shows her the revolver he found upstairs. Lilly accepts it and  then asks that the Governor retrieve more oxygen tanks for David who is suffering from stage 4 lung cancer from the old folks home nearby.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 - 4The Governor finds the home pitch dark and seemingly empty. However he is soon alerted to the presence of a walker whom he finds on a wheelchair in the hallway. Instead of killing her, he pushes her away and continues. He finds another walker but shuts her inside the room. Finding a large stash of oxygen tanks, the Governor quickly wheels them out to find himself facing more walkers. Overwhelmed, he quickly grabs one can and makes his escape. Shaken, he delivers the tanks to Lilly and retires to his room. While Lilly cleans the cut on his head, she reveals that Meghan thought the Governor was her father. Meghan stays with the Governor while Lilly leaves to fetch an ointment. When Meghan asks him why he wears an eye patch, he jokingly tells her that he is a pirate. He then tells her that he got hurt trying to protect someone that he loved but who got hurt anyway. Later, a groomed Governor teaches Meghan to play chess, and it is evident that the pair have bonded as Meghan now regards him as a father figure.

The sisters discover that David has quietly passed away, they are all devastated. When David suddenly reanimates and grabs Tara, the Governor is forced to kill him with an oxygen tank right in front of the family. Despite the initial shock, Tara acknowledges that the Governor did what needed to be done but Meghan continues to become distant. However, the Governor decides to leave and as he does Lilly comes across him and insists that he stay. She tells him that she saw the photo of his family but says that he has now become a part of theirs. The Governor drives the family away in the delivery truck parked outside the house. They set up camp by a lake and Lilly reveals that she has feelings for the Governor.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 - 5The next morning, they find that the truck won’t start and proceed on foot. When Tara falls and injures her leg, the Governor walks on ahead and spots a group of walkers heading in their direction. Lilly helps Tara run, but Meghan stands transfixed. When the Governor beckons to her, she doesn’t move at first, but finally runs into his arms. Carrying Meghan, the Governor runs ahead with the sisters close behind him. When they fall into a pit containing a couple of walkers, the Governor kills them with his bare hands while gunshots fire in the distance. He hugs Meghan and swears that he will keep her safe saying ‘cross my heart’. As he looks up he sees Martinez looking into the pit with a gun in hand. The Governor continues to stroke Meghan’s hair and repeats ‘cross my heart’.

The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 6 Review Score: 98%


This episode of The Walking Dead was a highly enjoyable one, departing from the prison and into the Governor’s, signaling his imminent return. It was great to see the softer side of the Governor in this episode, which dove right into the nitty gritty details of his life after Woodbury. While the show initially presented the Governor as a toughened, steel hearted military man, ‘Live Bait’ shows a different side of him, with his yearning for belonging and family, which he finds momentarily in this episode. A classic flashback episode, it does the faithful viewer a whole lot of good, taking us away from the tense and ever changing environment of the prison to a more domestic one as well as giving us a taste of the open road. The Governor’s devotion to Meghan as well as his show of fear, especially in the scene where he faces the walkers inside the old folks home, is moving and brilliantly executed. The shocks are real and good, with the Governor ripping out the throat of a walker with his bare hands and breaking off the upper jaw of another with a bone being absolute chillers. Overall, one of the best episodes of this season yet.
