EW landed a few new stills from the upcoming Episode 4.06 of “The Walking Dead,” entitled “Live Bait”; and to save you from searching for them, we have all three here along with some clues of what’s ahead for the Governor from actor David Morrissey.
Along with providing the photos, the site spoke with Morrissey, who portrays the dreaded Governor, to learn more about what’s in store for the character in the next few episodes. We have some highlights below, but be sure to hit the link at the bottom of the page for more.
What’s up with his lurking around the prison? Morrissey says, “He’s looking for safety, and the main thing for the prison is it’s the safe place to be. It’s the alternative of our world in the zombie apocalypse. The prison is a place of protection, not a place of incarceration, so that’s why he’s looking at it… He’s looking at the building, I would suggest, rather than the people in it. Although the people in it are an inconvenience, because they’re in his way of getting safety, but it’s more about the building than the people.”
What kind of shape is he in? “…he’s fit, he looks well, he looks healthy — so he’s ready for confrontation in whatever form that takes… We’ll see a bit more of where he’s been in the ensuing months. I think it’s fair to say that at the end of season 3 we left him in a very difficult space. He had turned on his own people, and he didn’t do that with any pleasure. He’s not somebody who was doing that in any premeditated way. It comes out of him in a quite spontaneous anger. It’s like a red mist has descended on him, and I think what we’ll see in the coming episodes is someone who is coming to terms with that new person that we saw at the end of season 3 — whether he’s embracing that person or fighting that person. That is what we will see. He’s changed. He’s definitely changed. That is fair to say. And what we will see is where that change has taken him.”
Where is the character headed? “…he is a man that has lost everything. And I think what we see coming up is how he deals with that loss. He’s a dangerous man still, and he knows how dangerous he is. He knows what he’s capable of, and that is a very dangerous thing. And like I said, it’s about whether he embraces that man and how dangerous he is or whether he fights him. That’s the question coming in — which character is he happy to be? Which character is he trying to be? We see him at the end of episode 5 and he’s standing outside that prison and looking at that prison, and we don’t know whether he’s come in peace or come in war. We don’t know that yet. So we have to wait for that reveal in the upcoming episodes. He might have had an about face, but we don’t know. He’s a man who recognizes his own capabilities. That is fair to say.”
