The Walking Dead Season 4: David Morrissey on How The Governor Will Deal With His “Terrible” Past

The Governor (David Morrissey) could show up at any point on The Walking Dead Season 4. No one will say when he’s returning, but we do know that he won’t be the same guy we saw in Season 3 when he attacked the prison a couple of times and gunned down his own people.

That was six or seven months ago in the timeline of the show, but apparently Michonne (Danai Gurira) is not the only one who hasn’t moved on from what happened.

Since The Governor’s location and return details are so hush-hush, it’s hard for actor David Morrissey to talk about what’s to come. However, he did give Den of Geek some general teases.

“I think what’s important for me is that at the end of Season 3 we saw a man not in a very happy place, you know he’d done this terrible thing and it’s really taken its toll on him,” David said, “It’s not something he can just let go, he’s not sadistic and psychotic in that way, it’s a different form of psychosis to that. So it’s going to be interesting for people in Season 4 to see how he deals with this terrible act and it can affect him in many, many different ways so it will be interesting for people to see how he develops… it’s just that it’s hard because I don’t want to give anything away!”

What David can talk about, and has done a few times before, is how impressed he is by fellow Brit Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), who “sets the tone for the show” on a performance level but also with his professional behavior. “And not just other actors, but the rest of the crew, looking at Andrew — he sets the benchmark really, really high and you have to come up to that, so you know you have to be on your game and you have to be looking after your cog in the machine really, that that’s your responsibility that day and Andrew does that totally, so he sets the bar for all of us really in his professionalism and his talent. So he’s the man we should look at for that’s why I think the show works so well.”

Watch your back, Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) — this guy’s trying to steal your bromance crush!

How do you think The Governor’s return will be handled? Do you think he’ll survive the season, or will we be losing him again along the way?

The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
