The last two weeks of AMC’s The Walking Dead have shown a totally different storyline from what we have seen over the last three and a half seasons. Viewers have been privy to the life of “The Governor” (Morrissey) in the time after he melted down and left Woodbury.
The Governor adopted a new name — Brian — and in essence became part of a new family to replace the wife and daughter we never really knew. Sure, we knew his daughter Penny as a “walker” (or “biter” as they were known in Woodbury) but we were never told the back story about what happened to his wife or how Penny became what we knew her to be.
So Brian reluctantly became a hero with the family he was taken in by, and as we watched, he seemed to become a new person. Brian actually seemed to have redeemed The Governor and give him a second chance at life with a new family.
In last week’s episode, though (November 24), we saw The Governor creep back in and quietly dispose of Brian. At the end of the episode, it was hard to know for certain if The Governor was really back for good, or if Brian had to bring in The Governor to protect his new family.
In the December 1 episode, it looks as though we will see a clash between Brian/The Governor and our prison crew.
What do you think? Is The Governor really back for good? What do you think will happen next on The Walking Dead? Do you think this will be the end of The Governor or will he allow Good Brian to win in the personality struggle he is obviously dealing with?
