What is this weird new “threat” everyone is talking about dealing with in the fourth season of Walking Dead? We asked the Governor (David Morrissey), and what he told us made us very scared indeed.
On the red carpet of the Walking Dead Hyundai party, we nabbed actor David Morrissey and got to chatting about the Governor. He revealed a few hints for the new season, and a really great story about who decided which eye his character was supposed to lose.

Season 3 of The Walking Dead was a bit of a rough road for Carl Grimes, what with him having to watch his mother die and then put a bullet in her brain so she did not come back as a zombie. Oh, and then he had to sit there while his dad went off the proverbial deep end. Will things be any better when AMC’s zombie drama picks up again for season 4 on Oct. 13? And where does the relationship between Papa Grimes and son stand?
“When Lori died the group was a lot smaller,” says Chandler Riggs (who plays Carl) in the video interview below, which was taken during Riggs’ Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). “So at the end of the season about 50 people [from Woodbury] got off that bus. And so now that there’s 50 more people in the group, Rick and Carl might have some more time to get closer together. Or not.” Way to be cagey!

So many mysteries when it comes to AMC’s The Walking Dead. How did the zombie apocalypse begin? Why is everyone infected? Are there any safe areas left? Also, how is it that crossbow-wielding badass Daryl Dixon never manages to run out of arrows? We went straight to the source for answers and asked the man who plays Dixon, Norman Reedus, for an explanation.
“I try to recycle the arrows as much as possible,” says Reedus in the video interview below while taking a break from his Entertainment Weekly cover shoot (you can buy all three collector covers right here!). He’s got a point there as you often do see Daryl pull an arrow out of the skull of a walker he’s just put down. But still, with that few arrows at his disposal, and considering all the times he isn’t able to reuse one, it would seem he would have run out by now, right? “They go on runs and we raid places and this is Georgia so that is one of the weapons that people hunt with,” says Reedus. “So it’s not unheard of to find more arrows.” Reedus also assumes there is off-screen replenishment going on. “When you show this large of a time frame, there’s a lot of things that are sort of understood. You never see us go to the bathroom, but we do that.”
Reedus also spoke eloquently about the evolution of his character and how his on-screen brother Merle’s death has changed Daryl. As Reedus explains, with Merle gone, “Daryl has the opportunity to become the man he was never going to be.”
So it was a pretty hectic weekend with all the wonderful information that our cast & crew decided to share with us so I thought I’d do a little post recapping everything in one place, in case you missed anything. If I missed anything, let me know!
I guess the most important thing was that Season 4 trailer, which blew my mind. I have watched it so many times & I have about a million theories on what could happen in this up coming season. If you haven’t seen the trailer, it’s here:
Norman Reedus did an interview for Access Hollywood:
Steven Yeun participated in Entertainment Weekly’s Brave New Warriors panel:
