When the Governor returned to AMC’s number-one drama The Walking Dead two weeks ago, we knew things would become dangerous. He had a lull in his first episode, when he seemed as though he’d began to change. But, last week, after committing multiple homicides, we knew that the old governor we loved to hate had really made his triumphant return, and Sunday night, things will be horrifying, as he convinces his caravan that they need to remove Rick’s group from the prison, and take it as their own.
Will Rick and The Governor finally get down and dirty, and fight it out, in the long-awaited battle for the prison Sunday during The Walking Dead‘s midseason finale?
Meanwhile, there’s still drama and uncertainty within the prison as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has yet to tell Daryl (Norman Reedus) that Carol (Melissa McBride) has been banished following her role in Karen’s death? Things could not be worse for Rick and the Team Prison, if they had planned it that way.
On Sunday night, the episode titled, “Too Far Gone” will be one of the best ever, and viewers are in for multiple shockers. Showrunner Scott Gimple spoke with THR, and he teased a lot of turmoil, even tragedy.
Last week’s teaser, we were promised, there will be a bloody battle. As many know, in the comics, the battle for the prison claims Lori and baby Judith before a member of The Governor’s camp — named Lily, as potentially in Brian’s new love interest — turns her gun on the eye-patched baddie. “We’ve seen The Governor kill people to ensure the safety of his new family and we see him determined,” Gimple says. “We see Rick is very much back as someone with a gun on his hip, ready to participate in the brutality of the world to keep his people safe. It’s a very explosive situation and it’s entirely possible that everybody doesn’t make it back. That sort of thing would be something that would affect these characters even more deeply.”
Don’t think the blood will just be on the Governor’s team, it’s going to be horrific for Team Prison as well. “It’s a potentially explosive situation on top of an explosive situation; one from inside the prison [Daryl and Rick] and one from outside the prison [The Governor],” Gimple notes. “If both were to happen at the same time, that could be quite dangerous for the people inside the prison.”
The Governor, Michonne and Daryl, as well as Maggie (and Hershel), all have open wounds after the events of season three. The Governor still sees red in Michonne, who killed his zombie daughter Penny and claimed his eye, while the katana-carrying heroine hasn’t avenged Andrea’s (Laurie Holden) death yet. Daryl, meanwhile, lost his brother, Merle (Michael Rooker), at the hands of The Governor. “Michonne and Daryl will not react well if they were to see The Governor — they’re not all the way healed from their experiences with him,” Gimple warns.
Okay, no more warnings, there will be bloodshed. Here’s an exciting teaser!
