Guess That Blows My Theory...

If you were a fan of the Walking Dead comic series before the TV series was even a twinkle in Kirkman's eye, you will likely agree that the "Governor" storyline has been the most gripping and brutal story arc to date. I even know a couple of people who found it so disturbing that they abandoned the series all together, citing that Robert Kirkman simply took things too far. 

While some people complain that the AMC series isn't faithful enough to the source material, I, for one, am glad they change things up - who wants a panel-by-panel recreation of the comic, anyway? I don't like knowing what's going to happen next! However, last season, when Daryll's hillbilly brother, Merle was left to die handcuffed on the rooftop, only to escape by sawing his hand off, left me convinced that he would re-appear much later as the sadistic leader of the Woodbury community; The Governor.

Alas, it was not to be - David Morrisey has landed the key role in the upcoming third season of AMC's "The Walking Dead," AMC has announced. He'll play The Governor.

His real name Brian Blake, The Governor is the leader of a small settlement of survivors. He becomes the chief antagonist for Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group.

The Governor will appear in "The Walking Dead" season three, a 16-episode order from AMC, which begins production this spring in Atlanta.


  1. If you want to find out more about who the Governor is. Read TWD The Rise of the Governor. It is a great book and gives you the back story to who Brian Blake really is. If you are as big a fan of TWD as I know Dan and I are. Then this is a must read.
