Spoiler Warning:This article contains specific details from The Walking Dead Mid-Season finale. Remember the conspiracy theory after The Walking Dead Mid-Season finale that The Governor might not really be dead? Sure, Michonne stabbed The Governor through the chest and Lilly apparently shot him in the head, but The Governor's dead body was never show. And when there's not a dead body shown on television, the death is always suspect. Could Lilly have missed when she took aim at The Governor's head?
The latest twist in The Governor conspiracy theory is that David Morrissey himself has hinted that The Governor could return. In an interview with the Press Association, Morrissey said, "Something happened to him. I feel like a shady politician where I can't confirm and I can't deny anything. Certainly, bad things befell him at the end of the last episode but we just have to wait and see..."
Now, it's always possible that Morrissey is hinting that The Governor could return in a flashback sequence or maybe Rick Grimes hallucinates seeing The Governor in a white dress. However, here's another interesting twist. Comicbook.com received some press photos from AMC, which do show The Governor's body with a bullet wound in his head. However, this specific image was not shown in the scene that aired on television. Why was the scene of The Governor's dead body removed? Could it be that Walking Dead writers and producers wanted to leave the door open for the possibility of The Governor's return?
