Meet The Governor

WARNING! THIS POST IS LADEN WITH SPOILERS. IF YOU DON’T WANT YOUR WALKING DEAD VIEWING EXPERIENCE RUINED, MOVE ALONG.  THERE IS NOTHING FOR YOU TO SEE HERE.

If you’ve read The Walking Dead comics, then you should be familiar with The Governor.  If you aren’t familiar with this character, you should know that he is one of the best villains in all of comic books.  No, he’s not better than the Joker, but he’s up there.  As far as twisted and evil goes, this guy is near the top of the list.

Fans of The Walking Dead television show have been waiting on news to see who would be cast as this epic character pretty much since the third episode of the first season.  While there were a lot of fans of the mindset that Merle would turn out to be The Governor, the announcement that David Morrissey has been cast shattered the hopes and dreams of fans everywhere who were hoping that Merle would exact his revenge for being handcuffed to that roof in Atlanta.

Knowing that this bit of casting has been finalized for next season tells us a lot.  Specifically, it tells us that Rick and his band of survivors will likely be setting up camp at the prison and that they’ll be discovering the community of Woodbury.  This is a huge story line where we get to see a lot of development with the characters. I’m very happy that it’s going to be included in the show.

Also, the Woodbury scenes in the comic with The Governor were tough to read.  (They’re pretty messed up.)  I’m very excited to see how they’ll play out on television.
