The Walking Dead Season 4: David Morrissey Psychoanalyzes The Governor

Did you know that David Morrissey’s (The Governor) wife, Esther Freud, isn't just a novelist she's a great-granddaughter of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud?

AMC did a little Q&A with David during The Walking Dead Season 4, and asked the actor what The Gov. would have to say if he was on an analyst's couch.

"I think an analyst could take a lot of money off The Governor!" David said. "I don’t think he’s a one session guy. There’s probably a lot going on there. He seems to have a bit of a megalomaniac side, and I think he’s quite angry at the world, which is giving him quite a lot to be angry about. In that Darwinian way, I think there’s an element of survival of the fittest in The Walking Dead. And sometimes you think about the fittest as someone who can run the fastest, and has the biggest muscles. Of course, the fittest is who can adapt most quickly to their surroundings, and I think that’s what happens with the Governor. He’s able to adapt very quickly to new situations that he finds himself in."

It's Survivor: Zombie Apocalypse! The Gov. does seem to win friends and influence people with surprising ease, even when he's disheveled and mopey. Heck, the guy even killed Pete in Episode 7 and admitted to it to his bro’s face. Now that bro, Mitch, is part of The Gov.'s new crew, ready to take over the prison. You have to admire that strange power. He is a worthy adversary, so we hope he's given a good death ... very soon.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. The mid-season finale, Episode 8: “Too Far Gone,” airs December 1.
