Will The Governor Be Returning to 'The Walking Dead?'

Last week in a TVGuide Q&A, a little spoiler about the mid-season premiere of "The Walking Dead" was dropped. Despite the episode being described as very Carl and Rick-oriented, it indicated that a character we thought met his demise, would be returning. Wait...what?

Here's exactly what was written:

Do you have any scoop on the return of "The Walking Dead?" — Damon
Don't expect to see too many familiar faces since Rick and Carl take center stage when the AMC drama returns. While Rick heals from his beating from The Governor — whom you will see again — Carl will lose something very important to him. (No, not his innocence!) In other news, it won't be long before this mystery is blown wide open.

Now we don't suspect that The Governor is a zombie, per se, but that he'll be one of very-badly-hurt-Rick's hallucinations. This seems to be the popular belief and since Rick has a history of hallucinations, this would make sense. Also, since executive producer, Gale Anne Hurd re-tweeted the TVGuide spoiler via The Examiner, it indicates that the powers that be want this tidbit to get out there.

So there you have it. The Governor will be showing up again but we'll just have to tune in this Sunday to find out how, where, and if he'll still be the mega-villain he was when he was breathing. Sound off with your thoughts!
