Where is he?
In an interview with Zap2It, The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Ann Hurd spoke about The Governor's (David Morrissey) whereabouts during season four. Here are highlights:
On why David Morrissey has been absent from season four promotion: "We did that for reason being we don't want people to focus too much on, 'Oh, you know, Season 4 is going to be exactly like Season 3.' Then all the questions are, 'Is he going to be in the first episode? How much of a focus is going to be on the Governor?'"
On only including more zombies when it makes sense for the story: "It's important to get a sense collectively of what people want, but also realize if it is not an organic outgrowth of where our characters and world are at a particular point then we can't necessarily accommodate it. It's true that there are more and more walkers in the world. At some point this calm period at the Prison is going to end, and it's they're going to encounter them when they go on runs, they're going to encounter walkers at the Prison; it's inevitable."
On what is happening to Carl: "At the end of last season, he got to see the direction that Carl was taking. I mean, he really had become a child soldier, and a child soldier who could kill another young man. That's not something that Rick could have imagined happening, and I think it was a huge wake-up call for him. We'll see how Rick has been changed by the observation of who Carl was in danger of becoming at the end of last season."
