The Walking Dead's Season 4 Comic-Con trailer offered us a fair few things to think about while we wait for the show's October return; a glimpse of prison life for the Woodbury gang, Tyrese's () growing influence, and Hershel's () growing unease. One thing we missed, however, was anything from as The Governor.

But don't start to relax yet, folks! Because although we may not have seen any evidence of his unique brand of carnage for Season 4, he'll definitely be very present. In fact, TV Line is reporting that he'll be somewhat integral to the series with his own self-contained episodes:

I can tell you that he'll have a major presence in at least two Season 4 episodes, both of which are being unofficially billed as 'standalone Governor' installments. No specific intel on when those episodes will air, but I hear they'll likely fall in the first chunk of eight.

This suggests that the focus of The Walking Dead Season 4 will not be Rick () versus The Gov, which might come as refreshing news for those - like me - who have grown tired of the stand-off between them throughout almost all of the last season.

The Governor is kinda cool but I'm not sure I'd be interested to spend entire episodes with him to see what he's become since Season 3. I'm guessing he's still a monster and I'd rather see what Rick and the gang are up to. I suppose if The Governor has to have these standalone episodes then I'll be hoping to see some of that off-the-wall brand of batshit crazy evil that he demonstrates in the comics...

Do you think The Governor deserves 2 whole hours to himself?
