We’re still a month away from the return of The Walking Dead and the second half of the fourth season, but already there have been rumors flying about what the last half of the season will contain. One wild rumor making the New Year’s Eve rounds is that The Governor will be returning, despite being killed at the end of the midseason finale earlier this month.
The rumor isn’t coming from some basement dweller licking Cheetos powered off his fingers, it’s coming from The Governor himself. Actor David Morrissey talked with the Press Association and heavily hinted at the fact that we may not have seen the end of The Governor in season four.
“Something happened to him. I feel like a shady politician where I can’t confirm and I can’t deny anything. Certainly, bad things befell him at the end of the last episode but we just have to wait and see…”
It seems highly unlikely that we will see anymore forward progress with The Governor but it’s entirely possible that he returns either in flashbacks or as visions and illusions in the minds of the survivors scattered around the prison following the events of the midseason finale.
Morrissey also ensured Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick that The Governor was a changed man before he massacred the prison in the midseason finale, so this wouldn’t be the first time Morrissey pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes.
The Walking Dead returns with the second half of season four in February 2014.
