'The Walking Dead' Recap: The Governor Kills Martinez, Takes Aim At Michonne
The Walking Dead focused solely on the Governor (David Morrissey) in last week’s episode and picks up with him getting pulled out of the walker-infested pit in this week’s “Dead Weight.”
The Walking Dead Recap
Martinez (Jose Pablo Cantillo) helps both the Governor and his new surrogate daughter Meghan (Meryrick Murphy) back onto solid ground and accepts his former leader’s request to take on Meghan and her sister and aunt. Furthermore, Martinez informs the Governor that he’s currently heading a small group with brothers Pete and Mitch. The three guys bring the Governor on a supply run to a cabin that housed a group of survivalists. The Governor proves his worth to the group when he takes out the two walkers in the cabin in one fell swoop.
The Governor Takes Over A New Camp
Later on at the camp, Martinez takes the Governor up on the roof of their RV shelter to bond over some beer and driving golf balls. The more he drinks, the more vulnerable he gets – talking about his fear of ever starting a family again and his ability to head his camp. The Governor takes the opportunity to knock Martinez out with a golf club and toss him into a pit of walkers. He then makes plans to flee with Meghan, Lilly (Audrey Marie Anderson) and Tara (Alanna Masterson), who’s started a relationship with Alicia. When a walker roadblock materializes up ahead, he decides instead to kill Pete and take control of the camp with Mitch at his side.
The Governor Takes Aim At The Prison
The Governor gives Mitch a lesson in the way morality works in the apocalyptic zombie world – there is none. You have to do what you have to do to survive, and nothing else. Before long, the Governor has made the ragtag camp into a mini working society. After saving Meghan from a biter, he rides out to the West Georgia Correctional Facility and gazes through the fencing at Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl (Chandler Riggs) dining on vegetables from the garden.
He then shifts he gaze to where Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Hershel (Scott Wilson) stand, burying bodies after the latest outbreak of the virus that’s turning the unbitten into walkers. With the memory of Michonne’s murder of his daughter and making him the one-eyed patch-wearing man he became, he lifts his gun and takes aim.
