The Walking Dead: Dead Weight / Season: 4 / Episode: 7 (2013)
November 24, 2013
Martinez rescues The Governor and Meghan from the pit and realizes The Governor has assumed a new identity. Lilly and Tara rejoin the two, and the foursome join a large group of survivors led by Martinez. After reassuring Meghan of her safety at the camp, The Governor joins Martinez and his right-hand men, brothers Mitch and Pete, on a supply run to a survivalist cabin, finding decapitated bodies along the way. At the cabin, Martinez says he rescued The Governor because he was with Meghan, and notes The Governor seems to have changed for the better. The next day, Martinez invites The Governor to hit golf balls from the top of a camper, where Martinez relates that Shumpert was bitten by walkers (and Martinez had to put him down before he could turn) in the preceding months and says there are some things they could not return from. When a drunk Martinez admits that he doubts that he can keep the camp safe by himself, an enraged Governor hits him in the head with a golf club and feeds him to a pit of walkers. Mitch holds a meeting where they disclose Martinez's death, and Pete claims temporary leadership. The Governor goes on another supply run with Mitch and Pete, and they discover a camp of survivors. The brothers debate whether they should take the people in or rob them. Mitch wants to rob them, but Pete insists they leave them alone. A short while later the survivors are discovered murdered and looted. The Governor, convinced Pete's group isn't safe, tries to lead the Chamblers away from the group but turns back upon encountering a mud pit filled with walkers. The next day, The Governor kills Pete and forms an alliance with Mitch, who wanted to loot the aforementioned camp, and The Governor becomes the leader of Martinez's former group. The Governor keeps a zombified Pete chained in the bottom of a pond. Despite the camp's new defenses, Meghan and Tara are attacked by a walker that The Governor kills. The Governor concludes that the prison is a safer place for the family and proceeds to scout the prison. After observing Rick and Carl, he sees Hershel and Michonne in the woods burning walker corpses and aims his gun at them.
