When we last saw the Governor in the Mid-Season Finale of The Walking Dead, the Governor was in quite a pickle. The Governor had already murdered people, gone to blows with Rick, been stabbed through the chest by Michonne, and if all that wasn’t enough, shot in the head by Lilly. However, the question still remains, have we indeed seen the last of the Governor?
The Governor always did strike me as the Jason Voorhees type; the one that no matter you throw at him, and no matter how many times you try to blow him up, he still keeps coming back.
Well, we can assure you that the Governor is most definitely dead. This we know for sure thanks to an interview with Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd had with the website Zap2It.
“That was a head shot! Lilly shot him,” Hurd said.
So, this pretty much confirms that The Governor is indeed dead, and due to the shot to the head, we won’t be seeing any sort of zombified version of him either. However, we also know that characters on The Walking Dead don’t seem to stay dead very long.
Here’s looking at you, Lori.
In an interview with Press Association, and brought to us by Zap2It, David Morrissey teases something more for the Governor on The Walking Dead.
“Something happened to him.” He says. “I feel like a shady politician where I can’t confirm and I can’t deny anything,” he continues. “Certainly, bad things befell him at the end of the last episode but we just have to wait and see.”
Now, more than likely he is just messing with us; however, I wouldn’t immediately count this out completely. As I said before it is not like every single person who has died on the show hasn’t popped back up in some fashion, whether in a flashback, a delusion, or some other form.
Like Morrissey says, I guess we’ll all have to wait and see.
The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, February 9that 9:00 p.m. on AMC.
