The Governor, played by David Morrissey, makes his debut in the third episode of Season 3 titled “Walk with Me.”


Assignment X analyzed the TV version and the comic book version of the character.

Morrissey may not fit the physical type of the Governor as seen in the comics – that of a lanky-haired biker with a ’70s porn moustache – but so far he not only seems perfectly capable of conveying the villainy necessary to make this a memorable character, but his more handsome look may lend his role more meaning. If beneath such a dashing exterior lurks the heart of a monster…

Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea, teased the episode with E! Online Friday.

“It’s going to be unlike anything you’ve seen on The Walking Dead. Andrea’s storyline in many ways I feel like is almost like a spinoff show. [Next episode] is the introduction of Woodbury, and the introduction of many characters, like the Governor, and a completely different world than people have been exposed to before.”

From the helicopter crash to the Woodbury community, fans now have as many questions as they have answers.

Some fans are disappointed with Michonne.

“…we’re just imaging what it would look like to see Michonne (Danai Gurira) do anything but frown. Sure, she’s a fan favorite from the comics — and we know she’s one of the “good guys” — but at this point even Milton the new scientist guy has shown more personality.” (Wetpaint)

Even more climactic is the return of Merle, played by Michael Rooker, the redneck left for dead back in Season one. The tension picks up where it left off as Andrea tries to explain that his brother Daryl and Rick went back for him. Merle isn’t having any of it.

“Rick, he’s that prick that cuffed me to the rooftop.”
