In a recent live moderated chat with the LA Times about The Walking Dead's Season 4, who plays The Governor on the AMC show, provided a few details about the direction in which his disturbed character might be heading.
He's quite a warped character at the moment, and in Season 4 we'll be exploring about whether he can come back from that or whether it's left his mark on him indelibly, and he has to sort of be that character from now on.
When asked he could ever see himself and Rick Grimes () cutting a deal, Morrissey answered:
To answer the question about friends, even in our own life and in our own world, we sometimes do deals with people that we don’t see eye to eye with. In order for us to survive, we sometimes sort of turn a blind eye to people's natural character. You know, we do that in our life all the time, so maybe there is an element that they can sort of strike up some deal. I mean it would be a very odd deal, it would be a very odd sort of mistrustful deal, but they might have to do that in order to survive. You know, it's about I've got one thing that you need and you've got one thing I need, let's sort of at least have a conversation about whether we can survive sort of using each other. We don't have to trust each other, but we could use each other.
I have a sneaking suspicion that Season 4 of The Walking Dead will see Rick wedged tightly between a rock and a hard place, if The Governor has his way. What about you?
The Walking Dead Season 4 returns to AMC in Fall 2013.
