It was recently suggested that David Morrissey’s Governor could be getting two standalone episodes in the upcoming season of AMC’s The Walking Dead. TVLine’s Michael Ausiello told readers in an online SDCC Q&A session:
“I can tell you that [The Governor] will have a major presence in at least two Season 4 episodes, both of which are being unofficially billed as ”standalone Governor” installments. No specific intel on when those episodes will air, but I hear they’ll likely fall in the first chunk of eight (premiering Sunday, Oct. 13)”
The new Walking Dead trailer that premiered at Comic-Con featured practically everyone other than the Governor himself. The suggestion of the standalone episode for Morissey seems legit, so we can rule this a major possibility. In season 3, they did a good split of time between the Prison and Woodbury. Do you think they will uphold that trend for season 4?
We last saw the Governor leaving town after a mass murder flanked by Shumpert and Martinez. His attack on the prison was a no go as those within the walls of the prison held their fort well, and now the Governor seems to be between a rock and a hard place. Could he be the one leaving Walker bait around the prison?
